After Toyota its Bajaj’s turn to face a possible labour strike and that does not sound to be a very good update for the Pune based manufacturer.

The management had dismissed this plea immediately. The union workers had returned to work with the assurance that the management would talk to them after they restored production.

We have a new spyshot of the upcoming Yamaha FZ Version 2 coming in from Greater Noida courtesy NDTV.com. The bike being tested on the expressway appears to be the same mule that has been spied earlier as well.
The new FZ V2 looks a little more muscular than the current FZ. It has more curves and lines to lend that visual feeling of more brawniness! In terms of changes, FZ V2 will get new air scoops and newer fins under the fuel tank, split seats which appear to be wider and more accommodating from the spyshots that have appeared so far.

PASSION TOWARDS BIKING
Since my childhood I was fond of bikes and travelling. I was grown up in a village by my granny because of schooling.

Every weekend my parents ‘ll come for me on that time I ask my dad for a spin in his BAJAJ Cheetak. [click to continue…]
The Suzuki GSX 1300R, popularly known as the Hayabusa, the peregrine falcon, the name itself carves out a niche of its own. Once the fastest production motorcycle in the world (now overthrown by the Kawasaki ZX-14R and MV Augusta F4 R312) has now indeed, and it must be duly noted that I hate to admit it, has become dated.
The form still flaunts a masculine form that supplements the rider’s muscular structure with hints of developed biceps, forearm and calves, as originally intended by its designer Koji Yoshiura. [click to continue…]
More news coming from Indonesia; Kawasaki is all set to launch its newest motorcycle on the blocks, the surprise Kawasaki Z250SL, which we have so far referred to as the naked version of Ninja 250RR mono.
