2018 BMW 6-series GT India review, test drive

While Bajaj thought the customer would be spoilt for choice with its variety – 100, 125, 135, 150 – and tech upgrades (125 ST monoshock), the strategy backfired. Several Discover motorcycles have come and gone, sometimes without a ... Read More »

And with a bit more money, that power could be bumped up to an almost ludicrous 226hp through an optional Akrapovic exhaust and an engine remap. With its ... Read More »
