industry facing a tough time

THE INDIAN ECONOMY IS GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME AND ESPECIALLY THE FARMING sector is facing a crisis. Naturally, this is taking a toll on the sale of two-wheelers, with most of the big manufacturers showing a de-growth or flat growth for the first time in many years.The Indian Motorcycle of the Year (IMOTY) award ceremony was held last month and the new Royal Enfield Interceptor had a landslide victory. The Royal Enfield team, headed by Siddhartha Lal, has done a fantastic job with the 650 twins and they deserve all the success. No doubt the twins are fantastic motorcycles, but the icing on the cake is the price; Royal Enfield are not ripping off their customers like others when they add a cylinder and double the price.Finally, after…

HMSI HAVE ANNOUNCED THAT THEY WILL soon be launching the CB300R, a 286-cc bike that has been in existence for the past two years but has not yet come to India. That is about to change now as the company seems to be focusing on the growing 300-cc segment.Recently the company announced that the bookings for the new CB300R were open at just Rs 5,000 and that the bike would be available at less than Rs 2.5 lakh, which is quite a good price point. Although HMSI have not announced the launch date, we surmise that the bike will be launched before the end of the financial year, considering the fact that the bookings are already open. The company also said that the bike would come to India by…

harley-davidson livewire coming soon

IT WON’T BE LONG BEFORE HARLEY-DAVIDSON’S MUCH-ANTICIPATED electric motorcycle reaches the customer. The American cruiser icon has begun accepting bookings for the LiveWire. In the United States, the motorcycle is priced at nearly $30,000 (Rs 21 lakh, approximately) and is expected to be available from August 2019.Harley-Davidson’s decision to electrify its upcoming line-up came as a shock to ardent fans and most of us who considered the marque synonymous with chrome, V-twins, and big, burly motorcycles. However, the LiveWire looks promising on paper and has retained the visual appeal of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.To begin with, the LiveWire is the first production electric motorcycle from the brand and is quite a capable machine as it can go from 0 to 100 km/h in just three seconds and has a range of…
