a bleak scenario indeed

THE TWO-WHEELER INDUSTRY HAS BEEN WITNESSING A DECLINE MONTH ON MONTH FOR the past six months. There are a couple of reasons for this such as the atmosphere of uncertainty in the market, whether it is the job situation or just no cash flow, and to top these issues there is the compulsory five-year insurance for two-wheelers. When somebody buys an entry-level 100/110-cc motorcycle in the region of Rs 50,000, they are already stretching themselves to buy a daily mode of transport. If, over and above this, you burden them with a further Rs 5,000 or Rs 6,000, it makes the bike an unaffordable proposition for them. Then we also had a fuel price hike wherein the cost of fuel hit the ceiling with an all-time high of Rs 90 per…

suzuki bring a new 250 to the arena

THE GIXXER SF 250 IS SUZUKI MOTORCYCLE India’s second attempt at the 250-cc segment after the now-defunct Inazuma GW250. It is priced at Rs 1.71 lakh (ex-showroom). The Gixxer SF 250 is powered by a 249-cc, air-and-oil-cooled, fuel-injected, SOHC, four-valve single that produces 26.5 PS at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 22.6 Nm at 7,500 rpm. What’s new about this engine is the Suzuki Oil Cooling System (SOCS), a system, Suzuki claim, is rather efficient without the additional weight liquid-cooling requires.

Braking is taken care of by single discs at both the front and the rear with the safety net of dual-channel ABS. The SF…

kawasaki zx-25r

BETWEEN 1989 AND 1997, KAWASAKI PRODUCED a model, the ZX250R, a four-cylinder motorcycle that produced about 45 PS and 24.5 Nm and was capable of revving up to an unbelievable 19,000 rpm. Recently, Gridoto.com shared a few images from a Japanese magazine with the rumoured bike, calling it the ZX-25R. Like its predecessor, this motorcycle, too, is believed to come equipped with a four-cylinder engine that will produce 50 PS of peak power. We have no confirmation about these figures but if they are legit, it will make this motorcycle the most powerful one in its segment. If Kawasaki are recreating a modern version of this beast, then we’ll be happy to trade off our vital organs just to get a ride on one. Kawasaki are currently selling the Ninja 250 in…
