A new chapter begins. Harley and Hero officially teamed up

Harley-Davidson has been having a rough time in India. In September, 2020 Harley-Davidson had announced that it has wrapped up its sales and manufacturing operations in India. In fact, Harley was evaluating options to retain its presence in India under the company’s new business strategy. As of October 27, 2020, Harley and Hero have officially teamed up. Because it’s a partnership, there’s something in it to benefit both parties. Under the terms of this new agreement, Hero will use its vast network to both sell and service completely built-up (CBU) Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Additionally, it will sell parts and accessories for these bikes through both a Harley-exclusive dealer network, as well as Hero’s own existing dealer network.   Currently, Hero is the biggest volume-selle...

2021 Yamaha MT-09 gets revised styling and more power

Yamaha MT-09 was very well known for its menacing looks. So gone are the iconic and angry-looking twin-pod headlamps. What we get in the 2021 Yamaha MT-09 is a single-pod LED headlamp which is accompanied by LED DRLs on either side.  For the 2021 model, Yamaha has added more power to please the enthusiasts. The inline-triple's displacement is up to 890cc from 847cc. This motor is capable of delivering 115 bhp of maximum power at 10,000 rpm and 93 Nm of peak torque at 7,000 rpm.

Bugatti Bolide unveiled. 1240kg hypercar does 500.50kph

The Bugatti Bolide - company calls it the fastest and lightest car it’s ever built, with a top speed over 500.50kmphh, 1,825 horsepower, and a weight of just 1240kg. These two figures are made possible by the use of Bugatti's now-venerable quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre W16 engine, powering all four wheels, pumped up well beyond the 1600hp, it puts out in the Chiron Super Sport 300+.  This is done via “dethrottling” the intake of an exhaust system, four newly developed turbochargers and a redesigned dry sump lubrication system. It’s worth noting, however, that the maximum claimed output is achieved only by using 110-octane racing fuel. Using 98-octane petrol, the figure is actually the same 1600hp as the Super Sport 300+. The Bolide sits on a super-light and super-stiff c...
