    [​IMG]


    Tata Motors shot us a press release containing details and images of the India’s first CNG-Electric hybrid public transport bus. It can accommodate 32 people, uses a parallel hybrid system and has a top speed of 72 kph.

    Tata says it has a team of 500 engineers who are readily available to service these buses. The vehicles will be in operation during the Commonwealth games that is about a fortnight away.

    Ashok Leyland launches first India-made electric bus
    Updated: October 17, 2016 23:28 IST
    The Hinduja flagship Ashok Leyland has launched its first locally designed, engineered and produced battery electric bus series Circuit.

    The company has developed the circuit series electric bus, a zero-emission product, with some technology inputs sourced from its UK subsidiary Optare, which is a pioneer of electric buses.

    “Depending on the configuration and battery sizes, we can extend up to 300 km. These buses can cost anywhere between ₹1.5 crore and ₹3.5 crore depending on the number of seats and battery sizes,” Vinod K Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland said, while unveiling the bus here.

    Battery for these buses will be imported from US and is expected to last five to seven years. The local content in the bus is about 30-40 per cent.

    It will have a seating capacity for 31 passengers though it will be available in multiple configurations based on customers’ requirements.

    It comes with several benefits such as zero emission, longer life cycle, lower maintenance costs and higher residual value when compared with conventional diesel buses, the high initial cost is one of the major barriers.

    The company is working on getting subsidy support under the FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles), programme of the Centre to make it attractive for the buyers, according to T Venkataraman, Senior Vice- President - Global Bus, Ashok Leyland.

    The company will target metro circuit, tarmac and city circuits to sell these buses. It will target heritage sites too.

    Meanwhile, some states such as Himachal Pradesh and Maharashtra have been adopting such green vehicles and Ashok Leyland is in active discussion with them. It is hoping to clinch a deal soon.

    The new bus roll out comes on the back of its preparation for the emerging opportunities in the alternative transport solution market in the country.
    [​IMG]
    How it works

    Electric buses are divided into two segments: battery or fully-electric buses and hybrid electric buses. In fully-electric buses, the battery gives the entire energy needed for the operation.

    These battery buses have only one energy source in the form of battery.

    In AL’s Circuit electric bus, the Li-ion batteries supply the necessary electrical charge and the battery can be charged full in three hours. The bus can travel up to 120 km on a single charge. It comes with an alert system that will help the drivers identify that the bus is running low on power.

    The battery after depletion can be either charged using on-board or off-board charger. There will be sufficient charging points that will be initiated at the bus depots.

    Other features include on-board fire detection suppression system, advanced telematics for tracking, regenerative braking, USB mobile chargers and on-board Wi-Fi. Circuit bus, which comes with clutch-less driving, could hit a top speed of 75 kmph.

    Upcoming new bikes for 2016-2017

    [​IMG]
    By Sherman Hale Nazareth on Sep 22, 2016
    Bajaj Kratos VS400

    Test mules of Bajaj’s power cruiser, the Kratos VS400, have been spotted regularly around Pune; a sign that the launch date is nearing. The VS (Vantage Sport) will be the most powerful Pulsar to roll out from the Bajaj factory. Muscular design elements and a fairly squat stance, point toward the new VS400 borrowing inspiration from Ducati’s power cruiser, the Diavel.

    Sure, the Pulsar won’t be putting down Diavel levels of power but its basic engine design will be borrowed from the 373cc, liquid-cooled mill from KTM that powers the 390 Duke and RC 390 models. It will be tuned to be more easy-going than the KTM models, to have more tractable performance and better suit its touring nature. But the VS 400 will also sport Bajaj’s triple-spark technology. Power and torque figures will also be lower on the new Pulsar with just under 40hp on tap, compared to 43hp on the KTMs.

    [​IMG]
    The Kratos VS400 will come with telescopic forks instead of the USD forks first displayed on the concept bike. It will also now come with two-channel ABS as an option. The cruiser will be fitted with a freshly designed LED headlamp that adds to the whole look of the motorcycle. There will also be a fully digital split speedometer, with one mounted on the handlebars, and the other on the tank; quite like the one seen on the Diavel.

    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 1.6 lakh (ex-showroom)

    BMW G310 R

    The successful mid-displacement street-naked segment is sure to heat up with the arrival of BMW Motorrad’s G310 R. BMW has played it safe with the styling of the G310 R and strayed away from the general quirkiness that can be seen on its bigger displacement models. The KTM Duke 390 will finally have some competition in this segment. BMW also plans to follow KTM’s 'Make in India' policy and manufacture the G310 R here in collaboration with TVS and then export it to other countries.

    The G310 R will come armed with a 313cc, single-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts that puts down 33.6hp of power, and weighs just 158kg. Of course figure-wise, this doesn’t seem to stray into 390 Duke territory, except for the price point of Rs 2.2 lakh. But the fresh engine layout should make things quite interesting; the G310 R will come with a reversed-cylinder design that slopes towards the rear wheel, instead of the conventional engine layout. This would allow for a more compact motorcycle with more evenly distributed weight and a lower centre of gravity. The upside of this layout also creates space for a longer rear swingarm, while keeping the wheelbase relatively short to make it a more manoeuvrable motorcycle.

    [​IMG]
    If BMW manages to replicate the same levels of refinement and finish found on the larger displacement motorcycles, we can expect the G310 R to be great all round. It is set to get 41mm USD forks up front, a mono-shock at the rear, and a 300mm disc with a four-piston caliper at the front. That’s plenty of motorcycle for the price.

    Expected launch date: October 2016
    Expected price: Rs 2.2 lakh (ex-showroom)

    BMW’s full line-up for 2016

    There have been some absolutely spectacular motorcycles produced by BMW in the past. Earlier, they could only be purchased at Deutsche Motoren in Delhi and NCR, or Navnit Motors in Mumbai. This October, BMW Motorrad plans to officially launch its entire line-up here through dealerships in major metro cities. This would include everything from the insanely fast S1000RR, to the more adventure-oriented GS series, to the retro-styled R nineT. An exciting proposition in the least, prices of the motorcycles are yet to be released.

    [​IMG]
    Expected launch date: October 2016
    Expected price: To be announced


    DSK Benelli TRK 502

    There’s been a lot of hype around the adventure-motorcycling segment of late. Benelli had first showcased the TRK 502 at EICMA in Milan, Italy, and now we are inching closer to seeing this motorcycle available at showrooms here. It sports that typical adventure-motorcycle look with its large, beaked front-fairing and tall stance.

    The TRK 502 will come equipped with a 499cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 46.9hp of power and about 45Nm of torque. Aside from these figures being quite appropriate for our Indian riding conditions, the TRK 502 will also be available in two different setups. There will be one road-oriented model with 17-inch rims at the front and rear, and one model equipped with a 19-inch rim up front to assist in off-road duties. ABS will come as standard on both models.

    [​IMG]
    This mid-segment adventure tourer comes equipped with a 20-litre tank and a reasonable seat height of 815mm. Weighing in at 210kg, however, this motorcycle is a bit on the heavier side. With its spacious ergonomics, on-/off- road tyres, generous suspension travel and capability of carrying luggage, the TRK 502 would be ideal for long-distance adventure-touring. If this motorcycle falls in the expected price range of Rs 4-4.5 lakh, it would definitely be something to look forward to.

    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 5 lakh

    DSK Benelli Tornado 302

    The Tornado 302 was spotted testing around Pune in this month. It was showcased alongside the TRK 502 at EICMA, Italy, as well as at IBW, Goa. In essence, it is the faired sibling of the TNT 300. But look closer and the Tornado 302 has plenty of differences, including in the design. Obviously, there is an aerodynamic front fairing, but you can see the crisper lines of the tank as well. The tank capacity has been reduced by two litres to 14 litres, as compared to the TNT 300.

    It also sports a steel trellis frame that differs significantly from the TNT 300; most notably, the side-mounted rear shock absorber moves to a more conventional position under the seat. Also, the rear swingarm isn’t a twin-tube design, opting for a lighter and more rigid setup. It will be equipped with 260mm twin discs at the front and a single 240mm disc at the rear, along with 41mm USD forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear. ABS will come as a standard feature on the Tornado 302. The bike's 17-inch wheels will be shod with sticky Metzeler tyres.

    [​IMG]

    However, when it comes to the engine you can expect a familiar package – 300cc, inline-twin-cylinder, DOHC, liquid-cooled engine that churns out about 35hp of power and about 27Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed gearbox. Competition in this segment will comprise more powerful twin-cylinder bikes, namely the Yamaha R3 and the Kawasaki Ninja 300

    Expected launch date: September-October 2016
    Expected price: Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom)

    DSK Benelli BX 250

    The supermoto class of motorcycles has always been heaps of fun to ride. The motorcycles are intended to be sporty and aggressive with an upright seating position, similar to a dirt bike. They’re easy to manoeuvre and can manage really tight corners with dirt-bike-like acceleration. Benelli will be gracing us with its own, smaller displacement version of the supermoto, the BX 250.

    [​IMG]
    The BX 250 will be equipped with a 250cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that should have a power output in the region of 25hp. It comes with USD front forks and a linkage-equipped setup for the rear. This supermoto setup seems quite apt for Indian road conditions; loads of suspension travel and a comfortable seating position should make for quite a potent recipe.

    Expected launch date: H1 2017
    Expected price: Rs 1.8 lakh

    DSK Benelli TNT T135

    Finally, there will be a motorcycle to compete with the likes of the Honda Navi. With this recently established segment in motorcycling in India, Benelli has got a pretty exciting offering lined up. The TNT T135 follows a setup similar to Honda’s ‘monkey-bike’ and will get sports scooter-like 12-inch wheels.

    It will be powered by a 135cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that puts down approximately 13hp. But it will also sport top-spec USD forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, held together by a steel-trellis frame. Judging by how much fun the Honda Navi is to ride, that extra bit of power on the TNT T135 is definitely going to make things a lot more fun.

    [​IMG]
    Expected launch date: H1 2017
    Expected price: Rs 90,000

    DSK Benelli Leoncino

    The Leoncino is Benelli’s version of a retro-styled scrambler that could make its way to India late in 2016. This model wasn’t unveiled at the Auto Expo earlier this year; instead it was displayed at EICMA in Milan, Italy, with hints that it would make its way to India in the first quarter of 2017.

    The name ‘Leoncino’ means lion cub in Italian and can be traced back to Benelli’s small, light motorcycles from the 1950s. Despite its suave retro-styling, this motorcycle is completely modern. The front fender proudly displays a figure of the 'Lion of Pesaro', while the rest of the motorcycle is designed with emphasis on the personality of a baby lion. It sports minimal bodywork, with a nice, flowing tank and a neat tail section.

    [​IMG]
    The Leoncino will come with a steel-trellis frame that houses an all-new 500cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces about 44hp of peak power and about 45Nm of torque. It will come equipped with beefy 50mm USD front suspension that houses 320mm twin discs with four-piston calipers. The rear gets a laterally mounted shock absorber (a modern Benelli trademark) and a 260mm single disc with two-pot calipers.

    Hinting at its off-road capability are the large 19-inch rim up front and a 17-inch one at the rear, shod with knobbly tyres. This is one motorcycle that shows a lot of promise in the fun department and we can only hope it gets here sooner.

    Expected launch date: Q1 2017
    Expected price: Rs 4 lakh

    Yamaha NMAX

    Here's another reason for scooter aficionados to rejoice. The NMAX was displayed at the Auto Expo in Noida, earlier this year. Yamaha plans to bring this stylish looking maxi-scooter to India by the third quarter of 2016. It’s been available in Europe and Indonesia for a while now, and will now make its way to Indian shores.

    Aside from just looking suave, this scooter from Yamaha comes equipped with a 155cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that uses Variable Valve Timing (VVT). It will also come with ABS and 13-inch tyres. Its small size, low weight and high-rigidity frame will ensure that this scooter is a sharp handler. If the NMAX comes to India with the same specifications as its Indonesian counterpart, it could command a price tag of around Rs 1 lakh.

    [​IMG]
    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 1 lakh

    Yamaha MT-03

    After Yamaha launched the brilliant YZF-R3, plans are now in order to introduce a naked version of the motorcycle, labelled the MT-03. There were expectations of the model being launched during the Auto Expo 2016 in Noida, but instead, Yamaha launched its larger sibling, the MT-09, which is brought here as a CBU unit.

    The MT-03 will sport the same 321cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that is seen on the R3, that will churn out 41.4hp of power and 29.6Nm of torque. Essentially, most of the components from the R3 have been carried over, including the suspension, brakes, wheels and tyres. What will be completely fresh is the seating position. The MT-03 now has a wider and more upright handlebar.

    [​IMG]
    It will, however, be on the compact side and sport an R3 derived, diamond frame. It is unclear whether ABS will be offered as an option on the MT-03, as it's still not available on the sportier YZF-R3. But if the R3 is anything to go by, we can expect the naked version of it to be just as fun to ride.

    Expected launch date: Late 2016
    Expected price: Rs 2.80 lakh

    Honda PCX 150

    The second maxi-scooter on this list, the Honda PCX 150 gathered its fair share of admirers at the Auto Expo earlier this year. The otherwise conservative HMSI broke this stereotype earlier this year when it launched the rather quirky Navi. It’s now time for another fun commuter from Honda to make its way into the Indian motorcycling scene, the PCX 150.

    The PCX 150 is powered by a 153cc, low-friction, liquid-cooled engine that is fuel injected, and should have more than enough pep to make commuting quite a fun affair. It produces a peak power output of 13.3hp and peak torque of 13.7Nm. Its sleek design is reminiscent of the ‘Euro-scooter’ styling and it comes equipped with 14-inch rims that are significantly larger when compared to other scooters.

    [​IMG]
    The PCX 150 even comes equipped with a 12-volt accessory adapter for charging personal electronic devices. There has been no exact confirmation on a launch date but sources close to the company say it can be expected in India somewhere around mid-July 2016.

    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 1 lakh

    TVS Akula 310

    This will be the first fully faired motorcycle to be produced by TVS and is expected to hit showrooms towards the end of 2016. When displayed at the Auto Expo 2016, the Akula 310 displayed all the tell-tale signs of being an extremely track-focused machine. Obviously, the production machine probably not come equipped with the carbonfibre body panels that were on the display model, but the design cues are expected to be carried over unchanged. Its aggressive styling has taken inspiration from the design of a shark, not to mention the name ‘Akula’ as well.

    The Akula 310 sports a powerplant that was jointly developed with BMW Motorrad. It’s the same 313cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 33.6hp of power, which will power the BMW G310 R. The G310 R will be launched first in India, followed by the Akula 310 soon after. The bike should come equipped with USD forks up front and a mono at the rear. The display model even sported a steering-damper but we are yet to see if this will make it to production.

    [​IMG]
    Judging from the other motorcycles in the TVS stable, we can expect the Akula 310 to arrive with the same levels of refinement as the other models; the bonus being its track-focus. The KTM RC 390 should finally have some single-cylinder competition, but we are yet to see how the Akula matches up in performance.

    Expected launch date: December 2016
    Expected price: Rs 2 lakh

    Vespa GTS 300

    The Vespa GTS 300 was on display at the India Bike Week in Goa earlier this year and should be making its appearance sometime soon. As always, more power equals to more fun, so we can expect the 278cc engine on this scooter to provide loads of it.

    This 278cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine is based on the QUASAR engine platform and churns out about 22hp of peak power and 22.3Nm of peak torque. To keep this power in check, the GTS 300 will be equipped with an array of electronics that could give some larger displacement motorcycles a complex; this includes ASR traction control and a two-channel ABS system. There will be a multimedia platform that can be accessed via an app on your phone that provides data about the trip and diagnostic readouts of the scooter.

    [​IMG]
    The GTS 300 will come with an all-steel-body that Piaggio suggests, helps with the high-speed stability of the scooter. The ride quality should also be significantly good and this is thanks to a single-sided hydraulic shock-absorber up front and a twin-shock setup at the rear. Stopping power will come from 220mm discs at the front and rear that should really help keep the claimed top speed of 128kph in check.

    With its typical Italian scooter styling and larger displacement engine (for a scooter), the Vespa GTS 300 will definitely be a hoot to ride. What will be slightly disheartening is the price which should be somewhere around
    Rs 5 lakh.

    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 5 lakh

    Vespa 946

    If there’s one thing the Italian motorcycle manufacturers are known for, it’s the stunning artwork on the wheels that they produce. This Vespa 946 looks radical as ever and will certainly be a testament to that. With its floating saddle and sweeping lines at the rear, this scooter is sure to steal the show.

    It will come armed with a fuel-injected, three-valve, SOHC 155cc single-cylinder engine and the trademark Vespa monocoque chassis. The 12.7hp of peak power will be kept in check via the ASR (Anti-Slip Regulator) traction-control system. Quite like the GTS 300, the 946 will come with a single-hydraulic shock up front and a twin setup at the rear with 220mm discs for stopping power. The Vespa 946 leans more in the direction of an exclusive work of art rather than a mere 155cc scooter.

    [​IMG]
    The price, however, may be a bit of a shocker as it could be heftier that that of the GTS 300. Considering that the 946 will brought in as a CBU, it will the most expensive scooter to ever be sold in the country.

    Expected launch date: Q4 2016
    Expected price: Rs 9 lakh

    MV Agusta Brutale 800

    Another Italian manufacturer known for its absolutely stunning designs, MV Agusta now has plans to release the Brutale 800 in India. It launched the F3, F4 and larger sibling of the Brutale 800, the Brutale 1090 earlier this year, which were available through the Motoroyale dealerships. The Brutale 800 was initially supposed to be launched towards the end of 2016, but plans have now been pushed towards the beginning of 2017.

    The exposed steel-trellis frame, the flat elliptical headlight, the triple-end exhaust and the well-chiselled, muscular tank give it the brutal good looks that it derives its name from. The Brutale 800 will be brought down to India as a CKD and assembled at the Kinetic Group’s plant in Pune.

    Having ridden the Brutale 800 earlier, I can safely say that this model is definitely one for the enthusiasts. It will come equipped with a 798cc, inline-three-cylinder engine with a counter-rotating crankshaft that puts down about 116 horses and 83Nm of torque. The power delivery feels aggressive and towards the redline, even up to third gear, it tends to send the front end skyward.

    [​IMG]
    The 43mm Marzocchi fork does a wonderful job at keeping things precise, while the rear Sachs shock absorber feels a little harsh going over bumps in a fast bend and tends to get the rear unsettled. Stopping power comes from the 320mm twin discs at the front and a 220mm one at the rear.

    The Brutale 800 will be priced around Rs 13 lakh, making it the most affordable model in the MV Agusta range for India.

    Expected launch date: H1 2017
    Expected price: Rs 13 lakh


    Tork Motorcycles T6X

    Electric is the future, and the future is finally here. Tork Motorcycle, a Pune-based firm, is set to launch an electric motorcycle T6X that seems to tick all the right boxes. It will also be the first electric motorcycle to be manufactured and sold in India. Founded by mechanical engineer Kapil Shelke, his passion for racing has seen Tork Motorcycle participate in professional racing, including events like the coveted Isle of Man's TTXGP (electric motorcycle class) to the TT Zero Race. The Tork racing motorcycle even secured a podium on its debut appearance at the Isle of Man.

    With the T6X, Tork plans to cater to the 125cc commuter bike buyers who are looking for something more premium. While the bike is expected to cost more than its immediate competition, the company claims that the lower running costs of the bike (a full recharge costs around Rs 10-20) means that the additional expenses incurred will be easily recovered within a year of purchase.

    Two charging stations have already been installed in Pune, and the company aims to set-up a total of 100 stations by the time the bike is launched in the city. The company is working on a similar plan for other cities too, which is expected to be completed within a year of launching the bike. The T6X is expected to deliver a maximum range of over 100km on a single charge, while top-speed has been limited to 85kph. Its Li-ion battery can reach 80 percent charge in one hour when plugged into a 15A source, and will attain full charge in two hours. It gets bespoke tyres developed by Ceat and features regenerative braking that charges the bike’s batteries upon decelerating. The bike is already ABS compatible, but initial models will make do without the safety feature.


    The highlight of the T6X is its connectivity features. It will get a display with navigation and a Mirror Link-like interface which is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. The bike was unveiled this month and Tork plans to launch the T6X in early 2017.

    Expected Launch Date: Q1 2017

    Expected Launch Price: Rs 70,000-80,000

    TVS is doing great work launching upmarket products and keeping competition open with Bajaj auto.
    Its like Tata vs Mahindra . Good for Us customers.
    Btw Bajaj has maintainance and QC issues

    And what about Hero Corp. They seem missed the party

The front suspension is taken care by the telescopic fork, while the rear is taken care by the spring loaded hydraulic mono suspension.

    I have first hand experience. My brother own pulsar 135. That thing feels flying above the road, Highly unstable . Disk breaks are prone to jamming .
    Heavy as a monster . Looks kinda ugly too.
    One advantage it has is its acceleration
