‘Ray’, the first scoot for the Indian market from Yamaha has been slowly picking up in terms of sales and we do find a lot of them in the streets of major Indian cities. Though the model is still new and was launched less than a year ago, it still poses a threat to all the major scooter makers in India.
Now, the great news is that the Ray has undergone a change and a new sibling is born under the name of Ray Z. The pictures you see here are the first ever shots of this new scooter. Ray Z boasts of mere cosmetic upgrades but looks absolutely fresh and peppy. Just like the FZ-S series of bikes, the Ray Z sports a small windshield that looks interesting. [click to continue…]

Attention Japs! Your stranglehold on the Indian market’s premium segment is about to be challenged soon. It seems the Britons have unrestrained love for our land.

Ladies and gentlemen, let us unveil for you an exclusive development about the Leicestershire-headquartered iconic Triumph Motorcycles. [click to continue…]
TVS and BMW’s courtship is about to spawn a 250 cc motorcycle as the first joint entity, as reported by Overdrive. Synergies have worked out quite well in the auto sector, with the alliance resulting in the creation of two or more slightly different models that can be marketed with different identities. And all this takes place at a fraction of the total cost of designing a new motorcycle all-alone!
TVS, well known for its Apache brand of motorcycles, doesn’t really possess a so-called-big-bike in its inventory. BMW, on the other hand, has a 650 cc motorcycle as its smallest offering. Current turmoil in the world economy as well as ever rising gas prices have shorn the demand off BMW’s bikes. Traditionally, their bikes have come attached with a premium price tag and hence it was imperative for them to brew a cocktail of affordable performance and efficiency. [click to continue…]
