The year of 2017 was a good one for Hero MotoCorp! While the company had just one launch in the Glamour 125, it managed to keep its market share intact and is still the largest selling two-wheeler brand in India. Now, the Splendor and the Passion brands from Hero are two of the biggest selling motorcycle models in India and it ... Read More »

2018 Hero Super Splendor review, test ride

Hero’s popular Splendor iSmart 110 has evolved uncomfortably over the Super Splendor. It doesn’t just looks snazzier and offer the same level of equipment but is also marginally more expensive and powerful (although less torquey). This is a crucial hurdle the Super Splendor had been waiting to overcome – and its turn has finally arrived. WAIT – A NEW ONE? ... Read More »

2017 Royal Enfield Himalayan FI review, test ride

It’s been a rocky ride for the Royal Enfield Himalayan. The bike received high praise at the test ride event in Shimla, where it impressed in the environment it was designed for and named after. But then things went a bit downhill, with numerous reliability issues creeping up. Royal Enfield eventually stopped sale as they set about developing the BS4-spec bike, and they also used ...

2017 Avantura Choppers Pravega review, test ride

Avantura Choppers isn’t a chop-shop. You cannot toss your motorcycle keys at them and ask for your bike to be re-imagined, in the same way that you wouldn’t expect it from Royal Enfield or Harley-Davidson. This is no make-shiny garage; Avantura Choppers is India’s newest motorcycle manufacturer. Scepticism comes naturally to us, being the thinking spenders we are, and this ... Read More »

2017 Ducati Monster 797 review, test ride

The Monster has always been an honest, no-nonsense motorcycle and, for a motorcycle that wears its 24-year lineage on its sleeve, it looks deliciously modern. This is good, because what Miguel Angel Galluzzi nailed in his first attempt (he is also responsible for the Aprilia Dorsoduro, RSV4 and Tuono – see the impressive pattern?) has evolved into a naked-bike icon, ...

Sherco TVS RTR 450 FX First Ride Review

“Holy mother of … *#@#!” I muttered with trepidation, together with a silent prayer, as I realised I’m airborne astride an enduro bike, the first of its kind I’ve ever ridden. I’m not what you’d call a particularly religious person, but this morning I needed divine intervention, more than riding skills, waiting for the bike to hit terra firma. The ... Read More »

Avantura Choppers Rudra, Pravega First Ride Review

If you’ve grown in the 2000s as an auto enthusiast, American television really opened you to the world of choppers, cruisers and custom motorcycles. These were outrageous creations that would later be delivered to their respective owners. They were anything but subtle and that’s what made American choppers so iconic. Over the years, a lot of custom bike houses in ... Read More »
