2018 Aprilia SR125 First Ride Review

An overwhelming number of 125 cc scooters made their debut at the Auto Expo 2018, five to be precise, one of which was the Aprilia SR125. Easily the sportiest offering amidst all these scooter launches, the SR125 is the younger sibling to the much-acclaimed Aprilia SR150 and promises to offer the same fun experience but with a smaller motor and a lower price tag. ...

Bajaj Avenger Street 180 First Ride Review

Without a shred of doubt, cruiser motorcycles are one of the more popular motorcycle segments with customers in India. And it was Bajaj Auto, which made buying cruiser motorcycles affordable for the masses with the first Avenger in 2005. In fact, the Avenger was an evolution from the Bajaj-Kawasaki collaboration product, the Kawasaki Eliminator, but what the Eliminator lacked was ... Read More »

2018 Bajaj Discover 110 First Ride Review

Bajaj Auto has played fast and loose with the Discover series with a multitude of models on sale during its 14 years. 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 »

2018 Ducati Panigale V4 S review, test ride

When the numbers were first released, they caused quite a stir. With 214hp of peak power, Ducati’s new Panigale V4 instantly became the most powerful production sports bike that money can buy. 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 »

2018 Bajaj Discover 110 review, test ride

To loosely quote – so as to not plagiarise, mainly – an insightful Bajaj Discover owner I learned about during this ride, the Discover genes are all about having fun on Sunday and being armed to tackle a hectic Monday as well. This is a beautifully coalesced thought (and a simplistic one as well) that can, perhaps, only emerge from ... Read More »

2018 BAJAJ DISCOVER 110 FIRST RIDE REVIEW

There was a time when Bajaj had flooded the commuter bike market with a plethora of Discovers. They were available in a variety of engine capacities and the sportier ones also had engine’s with a 4 valve head. That was pretty much unheard of in the segment. Spoiling the customer for choice, however, was not a good idea as it ... Read More »

2018 Hero Super Splendor First Ride Review

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 »
