  • 2012 Honda NC700X: First Look
    Honda introduced lightweight crossover motorcycles at the Milan Auto Show last year. These newly fangled middleweight crossover motorcycles ranked real-world fun above out-and-out performance.

The all new NC700X has a brand-new, parallel twin 670 cc engine, which could be had with either a six-speed manual shifting or elective automatic-shifting DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission).

  • First Look At 2012 Moto Guzzis & Aprilias
    Moto Guzzi and Aprilia are the motorcycle brands of Piaggio, and this time around the two of them are introducing around half a dozen new models for year 2012. So, considering the fact that we are associated with international motorcycle market in a deep way, it’s our moral duty to keep our readers updated on each and every front. This is why here we’ve got a brief first look at what Aprilia and Moto Guzzi has in store for you. We’d start with Aprilia, and will like to tell that this time around the company will be bringing back the fabulous bad-boy Tuono, which this time around will be having V4 R in its name, because of the 2 extra cylinders, extra horsepower of 41-bhp and extra pounds of 22-lbs.

  • 2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650 Adventure : First Ride
    In the modern times where the sportbikes are all about urbane electronic shamanism, along with traction control and 200-bhp, the normal practical sportbikes are going a bit off focus. But that’s not to say that not everyone can handle that advanced wizardry and that paramount of modern day biking. Now cut that 200-horsepower by two third and pair it with real operative components and the riders gets a potent and fun-to-ride bike. And the all-new 2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650 Adventure that we are covering today exactly is one of those bikes. We all know that since their inception, the V-Strom bikes have developed an offbeat followings, along with the Wee-Strom creating a position as a multipurpose middleweight. The Suzuki V-Strom 650 entering this year brings a welcome brew of new fragrances in the lineup of Suzuki (the bigger V-Strom  [...]

  • 2012 BMW G650GS Sertao : First Ride
    BMW has reintroduced their 650 dual sport single-cylinder motorcycle for model year 2012, which previously was known as the BMW F650GS Dakar. Having its roots back in 1993 and the unique F 650 single-cylinder Funduro, the newly launched G650GS Sertao and G650GS symbolizes the next phase in the fruition of the GS lineup of BMW. Just as the initial model, the newly launched 2012 BMW G650GS Sertao is a tad more than the twin sport, and that’s because it is been aimed directly at the escalating escapade touring sector, and to be more precise the new riders in the adventure touring segment. BMW is hoping that the dual-cylinder F800GS has matched the requirement in past some years, but the increasing demand of a low-priced, even fewer-threatening ADV bike helped ease the comeback of one of our old favorites. The 2012 BMW G650GS  [...]

  • 2012 Harley-Davidson Night Rod Special
    We’ve seen some brawny looking tough, nasty Harley Davidson in the past, but no one comes closer to the 2012 Harley-Davidson Night Rod Special. The Night Rod Special boasts Pro Stock lineage, black-x-infinity color design and drag strip stance, which gives it the nastiest look we’ve seen in any Harley Davidson in recent times. But that’s not it that separates the Night Rod Special from all its stablemates there’s a lot more than that. Unlike the air-cooled models, which hare more talk than business, from the Milwaukee manufacturer this V-Rod is a liquid-cooled model and delivers the essential performance punch. With its Revolution V-twin 1250 cc engine cranking up an estimated 125-bhp and a stout, rear tire of 240-width for transferring the power to pavement, this V-Rod enters the market with a clear intention  [...]

  • 2012 Honda CBR1000RR – First Look
    We wont be lying when we say that we weren’t all that impressed by the 2012 Honda CBR1000RR. This especially is because of the fact that it actually is the 20th Anniversary of the novel RR-labeled Superbike, the Honda CBR900RR, which actually transformed the world of Sportbike in 1992. And we are pretty sure that anyone who was expecting the similarly ruthless model for this year will certainly be disappointed as well, because of the upgraded suspension elements and a small bit of restyling are the only updates that the Big Red flagship Superbike of Honda has been given. The largest news for 2012 Honda CBR1000RR is the inclusion of the Big Piston Fork from Showa that immerses the springs in oil right at the base of the legs and places bigger, upper-flowing pistons positioned above to give silky damping action and better front-end  [...]

  • 2012 Kawasaki ER-6n – First Ride
    If you want a bike that you could enjoy riding all day long, and yet asking for more it is the all new 2012 Kawasaki ER-6n. We are saying it because we just felt it. The revamped Kawasaki ER-6n is a harmonious riding machine which makes you ride all day long with a desire to wish for more. The 2012 Kawasaki ER-6n gets its power from the 8-valve 649 cc, DOHC, parallel-twin engine, but this time around the exhaust and fuel-injection gives a small power boost under 7000 rpm. The swingarm and frame of ER-6n are both novel and shares a designing based on the alongside steel tubes. The sub frame for the bike has also been redesigned for allowing additional seat plod without any significant increase in height. The seat of the bike itself is a bit narrow, and the top end of the gas tank is a tad taller for accentuating the loutish appearance  [...]

  • Suzuki GSX1250FA – A Bit More Than Aesthetic Upgrade
    The lustrous black body gores of newly-fangled Suzuki GSX1250FA might get your attention, but it’s underneath those panels that count. And in case of GSX1250FA we’re disappointed to see that the glossy body impanels of the bike conceals the underpitchings of Suzuki’s 2009 Bandit 1250, which initially was launched in model year 2007. That bike, sequentially, was the 3rd variant of the archetype 1995 Suzuki Bandit 1200. At the moment, is seems that the El Bandito has made a comeback to the market, but this time around with a brand new look aimed at sport-touring band. The Suzuki GSX1250FA gets power from a 4-cylinder engine, which for this model year has been placed after an entire-fairing, fabricated to deliver better protection during the extended road trips. Several new styling rudiments, for example the hoarded  [...]
