BIKE India March 2019

BIKE India has fixed that urge with a truly adrenaline-pumping passion magazine that caters as much to the super-bike fanatic as to man-on-the-road commuter.

room for improvement

AT THE VERY OUTSET I WOULD LIKE TO CONGRATULATE ARAVIND KP FOR FINISHING THE Dakar Rally. The issue of Indian riders not being able to compete with their international counterparts and fighting for podium positions in any form of motorcycle racing, be it motocross or racing on the tarmac, still remains. In this issue we have done an interview with Aravind KP in which he mentioned that this time he was riding between 65 and 75 per cent of his riding capability and that this helped him in not crashing during the raid. Because our boys lack the out and out speed of the international riders, they have to ride at 100 per cent, or even beyond that, just to keep up with a top-class rider. The solution to this is…

yamaha mt-15 heading to india

YAMAHA WILL BE LAUNCHING THE MT-15 THIS MONTH AND WE are waiting with bated breath to get our hands on it. This motorcycle will share plenty of parts with the YZF-R15 v3.0, albeit in a naked bike avatar. The MT-15 was shown in Thailand recently and looks very similar in styling to its bigger-displacement sibling, the MT-09, with the alien-like front headlamp design, chiselled tank, and rear bodywork. The instrument cluster is the same as on the faired R15, an all-digital unit. The MT-15 will have the same engine as the YZF-R15 v3.0: a 155-cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve, single-cylinder unit that delivers 19.3 PS at 10,000 rpm and 15 Nm of torque at 8,500 rpm. The Indian-spec MT-15 is expected to be longer and slightly taller than the Thai model. Other changes include…

kawasaki ninja zx-6r deliveries commence

Kawasaki have commenced deliveries of their much-acclaimed supersport motorcycle, the Ninja ZX-6R, in India, thereby breathing life into a segment that has been dormant since the discontinuation of the Triumph Daytona 675. Priced at Rs 10.49 lakh (introductory, ex-showroom), it looks like a great deal. The design is similar to its bigger sibling, the Ninja ZX-10R litre-class superbike, albeit with an evolution of the cowling. The ZX-6R is a middleweight super-sport that packs a 636-cc in-line four-cylinder engine, making 130 PS at 13,500 rpm and 70.8 Nm at 11,000 rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox. However, once in motion, that ram-air intake starts to work its magic and the power output goes up to 136 PS. The Indian version is being assembled at Kawasaki’s facility at Chakan, near Pune, and has been…

triumph daytona 765 spotted testing in spain

Ever since Triumph pulled the plug on the Daytona 675, they have been tight-lipped about re-entering the supersport space with the 765-cc triple that powers the new Street Triple. With this powerplant now the control engine for the Moto2 World Championship, we have been expecting it to power the next Daytona; however, Triumph have declined to comment so far. These photographs, taken at a racetrack in Spain, are proof that the boys at Hinckley have been quietly developing a road-going super-sport, powered by the new 765-cc engine. Although the bike in these pictures seems to be clothed in the fairing from the old Daytona 675, the engine is clearly the new 765-cc unit. High-spec Öhlins suspension systems are visible at both ends and we can see Brembo’s latest Stylema radial calipers…
