  • RE goes electric with its first electric two-wheeler!

    A few months ago, at the international unveiling of the new 650 Twins, Royal Enfield CEO Sidhhartha Lal revealed that the company would not shy away from electric bikes when the time was right. Well, it now looks like the company believes that the time may not be so far away after all. The company's president, Rudratej Singh was recently quoted as saying, “Royal Enfield has several projects in the pipeline and the electric platform is one of them. We are in an investment phase in the project where we have a team that is working on different ideas and concepts with a long-term focus. We will disclose our plans at an appropriate time."

  • Robo Faced 2018 Honda X-Blade Launched

    Honda has positioned the X-Blade to attract youngsters and millennials, and for this purpose, it has adopted a very aggressive design language. The basic silhouette is reminiscent of the Honda CB Hornet 160R, but the company’s designers have given it sharper panels to increase its visual appeal. The X-Blade also features a taller fly screen, an underbelly cowl, chunky grab rails and a redesigned LED tail-lamp. The overall styling of the Honda X-Blade is impressive, barring the twin-outlet muffler.

    The bike’s edgy headlight is an all-LED unit, which makes it a segment-first. The motorcycle also gets a full-digital console, like the one found on the Hornet, but with the addition of a gear position indicator, service indicator, hazard lights and a white backlight.

    Powering the Honda X-Blade is the same 162.7cc, air-cooled motor from the CB Hornet 160R. However, on the X-Blade, the engine makes 13.9hp at 8,500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6,000rpm, which is lower than the Hornet's 15hp and 14.76Nm. Like the Hornet, the engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. Honda engineers have equipped the X-Blade with smaller tyres – 80/110 R17 and 130/70 R17 at the front and rear, respectively. The Hornet gets 100/80 R17 front and 140/70 R17 rear tyres. Braking duties are carried out by a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the back. What's surprising is that a rear disc brake isn’t even offered as an option. Neither is the option of CBS or ABS.

    Competition check
    Honda has launched the new X-Blade at Rs 78,500 making it Rs 3,859 is cheaper than the CB Hornet 160R, which retails for Rs 82,359. The bike made its debut at Auto Expo 2018, with bookings opening shortly after. In terms of competition, the bike takes on the TVS Apache RTR 160, the Yamaha SZ-RR and the Hero Xtreme Sports. The Honda X-Blade is available in five colour options – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic, Pearl Igneous Black, Matte Frozen Silver, Pearl Spartan Red and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.

  • Cruise along with choppers styled by Autographix

    There is something utterly sexy about cruiser bikes. They are big, have dollops of chrome and are designed in such a way that they can be ridden endlessly and gobble up distance easily. The characteristics of a cruiser bike are that the riding position is relaxed, the handlebars are higher than on normal motorcycles and legs are placed forward. These motorcycles usually have engines which provide with low-end torque and place more importance on relaxed riding rather than mind-numbingly fast. Read More...
