Article by Raza Ahmed
BMW recently introduced its two-wheeler division, BMW Motorrad in India. Though its comparatively fresh in market, the motorcycle marque is planning to launch another sub-brand from its international portfolio. The German motorcycle manufacturer bought Husqvarna back in 2007, and plans to bring the brand to India. Better known amongst motoring enthusiasts as ‘Husky,’ the specialty off-road motorcycles will sell through BMW’s current dealership networks in India. The company currently has its outlet at Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, and will provide sales and service of the Husqvarna motorcycles through this network. After the BMW acquisition, Husqvarna received a great deal of [...]

Hollywood flicks like Torque and Fast & Furious series have some spine chilling, jaw dropping wheelies and other stunts. The latest on the block, is Men in Black III, and it features a mobile running permanently on singularity. But is it the first? Fifteen years after the first Men in Black was introduced, director Barry Sonnenfeld is coming with the third of series, and this movie features a wicked monocycle driven by Agent J (Will Smith). Though in the movie, the radical vehicle is portrayed as an efficient mode of transport, it is certainly not the first of its kind. The invention of a one-wheeled cycle strings back to 1930, when J.A. Purves patented the Dynasphere design, inspired by [...]

In recent years, electric bikes have seen some radical designs and revolutionizing concepts. One less to add to the EV list is a sportsbike based on the iconic Yamaha R6. Now, if someone was to create a product based on the R6, we take it personally, as it is arguably one of the greatest motorcycles off all time. Having said that, the EV imitation of the Yamaha R6 turned out pretty cool, wearing the carbon fiber skin. The team at Vercar Moto stripped the motorcycle’s glorious 130 hp, inline-four, 600 cc engine and switched it with a 70 hp electric drive. Gracefully, the six-speed gearbox still finds its place driving the power to the rear wheels via chain drive. Though not as fierce as the [...]

TVS Motors has a spectacular lineup of two-wheelers in the Indian market and has a new 125 cc motorcycle to join the commuter portfolio. The company only recently launched the new Apache RTR to lock horns with the Bajaj Pulsar and Yamaha FZ16. In the commuter scooter segment, Wego is doing fair numbers in just over a year from its launch. However, the south-based two-wheeler manufacturer does not draw big volumes when it comes to sales in the entry-level motorcycle segment. In the FY 2011-12, Honda Motors and Scooter India (HMSI) slipped past TVS motors to take the number three spot as India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer. In an interview with CNBC, the company’s marketing president [...]
