Bajaj V12 First Ride Review

Bajaj V12 First Ride Review

While the Bajaj V15 has had a good run, the mental block among customers that a 150cc motorcycle is more performance-oriented and less fuel efficient than a 125cc bike has given Bajaj’s rivals an edge. To counter this, Bajaj introduced the V12 to slot in between the Discover 125 and the V15. While the Discover 125 is a conservative and no-frills motorcycle, the V12 is targeted at customers looking for something which stands out.

2017 Hero Glamour 125 Launch Ride Review

2017 Hero Glamour 125 Launch Ride Review

Owners club. Nestled deep inside farm and forest land about an hour and a half away from Buenos Aires, it is a sensational place. As the name suggests, it's a sort of owner only thing with 'owned' bits are mostly classic cars. But the highlight of the place is a small but challenging track it houses.

MV Agusta F4R First Ride Review

MV Agusta F4R First Ride Review

They'll call it ‘Motorcycle art’, if you ask MV Agusta. We’re inclined to agree, too – meet the MV Agusta F4R, the ‘mid-spec’ variant in the F4 range. Not as expensive as the F4RR, mind, but just as capable. This isn’t available any more, but there isn’t much of a difference between the F4 and F4R other than a graphics job and the more expensive one getting an easily-adjustable rear Ohlins shock.

Bajaj Dominar 400 First Ride Review

Bajaj Dominar 400 First Ride Review

The words ‘cruiser’ and ‘sporty’ might have been mutually exclusive till a while ago, but times have changed. Associated with low-slung and muscular styling, a torquey engine and a fat rear tyre, ‘power cruisers’ have introduced a degree of performance and charisma in a segment where it simply didn’t exist before.

MV Agusta F3 800 First Ride Review

MV Agusta F3 800 First Ride Review

The MV Agusta F3 800. How do I begin describing it? Of all the things that I have experienced, only one truly comes close; a lovely lady I know all to well. Let’s call her Ms P because given that she isn't a celebrity, chances are you have never seen her, forget about knowing her. But, I am going to draw this parallel anyway.

Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi vs Yamaha FZ-S FI: Comparison Test

Suzuki Gixxer SF Fi vs Yamaha FZ-S FI: Comparison Test

For the better part of the last three decades, Suzuki and Yamaha have been locked in a fierce battle. 100cc two-strokes had been around for a while, but the launch of Shogun in 1993 took the fight to the next level. The Suzuki had a 10cc advantage over the Yamaha RX100, was more powerful and the oozed sex appeal like no other bike. And yet it failed. 23 years down the line, it is the same story.

Ducati Multistrada 1200 S First Ride Review

Ducati Multistrada 1200 S First Ride Review

We've ridden Ducati’s do-it-all model before but we experience it for the first time on Indian soil. It takes the form of an adventure-touring motorcycle, but claims to transmogrify into a sportbike, dirt bike or commuter at the touch of a button or two.

Vespa VXL 150 70th Anniversary Edition First Ride Review

Vespa VXL 150 70th Anniversary Edition First Ride Review

A style statement; an attention magnet. Only the Italians could have created an icon like the Vespa. Even five minutes after getting my hands on the keys, I am walking around it taking pictures I am never going to use. This is the effect a Vespa has on you.
