2017 KAWASAKI Z650 ROAD TEST REVIEW

The Kawasaki ER-6n is a motorcycle I never took a shine to. It felt like too much work at the racetrack. It felt too bulky and unwieldy out in the wild. And it had that headlight. First an ooze paused in mid-ooze and then a marginal, very marginal improvement. But its price, especially in EMIs was stunning. On the face ... Read More »

2017 Ducati xDiavel review, test ride

It was an unforgettable scene, right out of a Ghost Rider comic. After a long day of shooting at a location about four hours from home, I returned to discover that the torrential rain had brought life in the suburbs to a standstill. Traffic snarls are never fun, less so on a 152hp fire-breathing beast. But in that painful clutch-in, clutch-out drudgery, ... Read More »

2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Test Ride Review

HIGHLIGHTS Triumph Bonneville Bobber based on Bonneville T120 Blend of classic 1940s style and modern performance Factory custom incorporates hard-tail ‘bobber’ design You could say, “beauty is only skin deep”, or something to that effect.

2017 Yamaha FZ25 road test review

Yamaha has had great success in getting Indian customers to invest more in their motorcycles. First came the R15, a bike that got people thinking it was okay to spend over Rs 1 lakh on a 150cc motorcycle. Soon after, the FZ16 convinced buyers that you could pay more for design, engineering and quality even if you didn’t have segment-leading ... Read More »

2017 Triumph Bobber road test review

Triumph’s Bobber is the fifth motorcycle from the new Bonneville line and perhaps the most niche model of all. The evolution is interesting because Triumph has the T100 and T120 models in the middle, holding down the full-retro theme that underpins the Bonneville line. The Triumph Street Twin is retro-flavoured but not enough to not appeal to people who want ... Read More »
