I was on the way back from Munnar to Trivandrum, riding Honda CB Twister, and it was begging me to take easy, it was running out of breath on the highway, and with high frequency handle bar vibrations my palms were almost numb. I was terribly missing the presence of fifth gear. Then and there I decided that I have to upgrade.
My name is Suman Satpathy and I live in Trivandrum, I am a software engineer by profession. Life can be lot easier and fun if you have a motorcycle with you. Twister was a gift from my father, who promised that he would buy me a bike after I get a job. I had high hopes, but my father had different thought in his mind. He always believed that one has to graduate from low capacity bikes to high capacity bikes. Twister was a very good city bike with awesome handling, good fuel efficiency and Honda’s aftermarket service was great, but what I needed was an all-rounder. [click to continue…]
The designers’ idea of a naked bike comes straight out of superhero comic books these days; or so it would seem. Fluidic, soft curves are passe. What you get are bikes carrying enough angles and edges to interest a professional sword sharpener. See the naked Kwakers, for instance; the KTMs; and this 300cc stripper from Honda.
Honda had, in December last year, registered a design patent with the European Union’s Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market a small capacity naked bike believed to be based on CBR300R and/or CBR250R. These renderings of the naked, courtesy Motorcycle.com, show a bike with single cylinder engine, frame, and wheels similar to the CBR250R. Honda, very recently unveiled the CBR300R, which is almost the same bike as the 250cc version but with a tweaked engine displacing 286cc. [click to continue…]

An official press release marks the entry of another Discover from Bajaj’s stables – new 2014 Discover 125. And as you must have noticed by now, there is no prefix or suffix after or before the name.
Although it is not mentioned, New Discover 125 is probably a replacement to the older-gen Discover 125 as we believe they will not place two motorcycles with exactly the same name. New Discover 125 joins the existing 125cc lineup of Discover 125T and Discover 125ST, with the new offering forming the base of the 125cc Discovers. [click to continue…]
