triple crown for rookie twain

AFTER A LULL OF THREE MONTHS, THE WORLD SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP (WSBK) kicked off in Philip Island, Australia, and the MotoGP season kicked off in Qatar. History of sorts was created by Alvaro Bautista and the all-new Ducati Panigale V4 R. It was a race for the V4 Panigale. It was rookie bike and rider that claimed the triple crown of the super pole, race one, and race two. Bautista is a rookie in WSBK but has come from MotoGP and this just proves that the standard of MotoGP is much higher than that of WSBK. I wish one of the sport channels starts broadcasting the WSBK races live. For the first time, we saw the Japanese rider, Kaito Toba, win a Moto3 race. In fact, Kaito is a product of the…

bosch bullish about two-wheeler business in india

PLEASED WITH THEIR SUCCESS IN THE COUNTRY, BOSCH INDIA HAVE announced their intentions for the market. Geoff Liersch, Head of Two-wheeler and Powersports Business Unit, said that Bosch would continue investing in dedicated motorcycle and power sport technologies. In a country where two-wheeler riders account for more than 30 per cent of road fatalities, safety is the need of the hour. Bosch propose to tackle this problem with a three-step solution. The first of these caters to keeping the motorcycle stable in tricky situations, using technologies such as ABS (anti-lock braking system) and MSC (motorcycle stability control). The second one focuses on advanced rider-assist systems (adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and blind spot detection) while the third one is all about connecting the motorcycle to the environment by enabling it…
