Last year of 2012 was surely a great year for all the the biking enthusiasts. Right at the start, we had the Delhi Auto Expo where Honda 2 wheelers sweetly surprised everyone by showcasing (and later on launching) the Honda CBR150R. The very same month, Bajaj Auto finally announced the advent of the KTM Duke 200, a bike we all had been waiting for since a long time.

Let’s face it; when it comes to safety on road, motorcyclists are arguably the most vulnerable people on the road who encounter and eventually find themselves into a lot of accidents. Studies show that because motorcycles are much smaller in size they may not be seen virtually in the state highways mostly by other motorists.
In worst cases even when highway motorists do see riders, many don’t demonstrate sufficient respect for them keeping a reason or another in their mind. It all boils down to either conscious or unconscious act, but in either way Motorcyclists life hangs around on that.
