imgKinetic Motoroyale launched the brand’s 800 RR America limited edition in India at a price of 18.73 lakh (ex-showroom). The bike is priced around Rs.30,000 lesser than the standard model. As we all know, Kinetic Motoroyale is the Indian partner for Italian motorcycle brand MV Agusta.

Apparently only five units of this new motorcycle is allocated for retail in India while globally the production of this model is limited to 200 units. Each of these motorcycle units come with an “American Special Edition” badge and a production run number. Red copped seat, blue painted robust fuel tank, and some white accents here and there, all together enhance the American look on the bike.

Like all limited editions, this model too receives zero mechanical changes. It gets the same 798cc, in-line three-cylinder engine that makes 140bhp of power at 12,300rpm and 87Nm of torque at 10,100rpm. The engine is paired to a six speed transmission unit with slipper clutch. Suspension jobs are handled by rebound adjustable Marzocchi USD forks at the front and a Sachs monoshock at the rear. Braking power on this motorcycle is rendered by Brembo 320mm double floating disc at the front and a single 220mm disc at the rear.

175 kgs weight makes this bike one of the most light weighed model in the segment.






Elon Musk tweets Tesla will come to India soon

KeralaOnRoad | Mar 23, 2019
imgTesla has been a revolutionary car maker in the Silicon Valley, and it’s CEO Elon Musk a trendsetter in the global automobile arena. This brand changed the general perception about electric cars and showed the public that cars can be practical to use as well as performance oriented.

It has been quite sometime that we have been hearing news about the debut of this brand in the country. CEO Elon Musk has now tweeted that Tesla will be entering India by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Our PM Narendra Modi visited the company’s production plant recently and was given a VIP tour by Elon Musk. Apparently, the import duties and high taxation policies seem to have caused the delay for their debut here in the country.

In June 2017, Anand Mahindra had also invited Tesla to set up a company base in India. The Government of India also wants Tesla to set up a plant in India which will make Tesla’s entry easier.

Tesla now has 4 models on offer called S3XY lineup. The standard Model 3 offers a certified range of 350 kms on a single charge and is a right wheel drive variant. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is attained in 5.6 seconds on the standard variant.

Performance variant with AWD option offers acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.2 seconds at the same time. This model is priced from Rs.25 lakh abroad, but if it is imported to India the same car will cost around Rs.50 lakh. This is the reason why the government insists on setting up a production plant in India. It now seems like finally the brand is getting ready to set foot on the Indian soil soon.






Benelli India receives a count of 150 bookings for New TRK 502 and TRK 502X

KeralaOnRoad | Mar 23, 2019
imgIn the previous month Italian Superbike manufacturer Benelli launched their adventure tourer TRK 502 and TRK 502X in India at a price of Rs.5 lakh and Rs.5.40 lakh respectively (Both ex-showroom prices). The company has received bookings for 85 units on TRK 502Xand 65 units on TRK 502. By the end of 2019 Benelli has planned to startup 40 dealerships in India. Discussions are going on too, with the government on setting up a production plant in the country.

Apparently, Benelli has increased its dealerships in India from 10 to 18 in last year and also launched modern facilities in cities like Delhi, Vadora, Chennai, Kolkata, Goa, Vijayawada and Mangalore. Both the models launched, TRK 502 and TRK 502X share the same engine. 499.6cc liquid cooled parallel twin engine renders power worth 47.6PS and 45Nm of torque on to these models while being coupled with a 6 speed transmission unit. Both TRK 502 and TRK 502X shares the same frame too. The main difference is that between both the adventure tourers, 502X is an off-road based model.

If the plan to start a new production plant in India takes place, then the bikes which are being imported now to be assembled here will go through not only a price revision, but also customized for Indian road conditions.

Tata upcoming small car in the making

KeralaOnRoad | Mar 23, 2019
imgTATA has been regaining its position in India mostly in every segment with the advent of Tiago, Tigor, Nexon and their recently launched SUV Harrier. The Indian Carmaker has developed enough potential to enter into an even more mass market. In the market, Maruti Suzuki Alto has been the No.1 car considering sales, which was last year overtaken by Dzire. Even though Tata had some bitter experience in the small car segment with Nano, things have started to change now and it looks like Tata is getting ready for once now to make a re-entry into this segment as well.

Positioned below the Tiago, the upcoming small car from Tata will be based on ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) platform that is currently being used for Altroz and H2X concept. ALFA is a highly scalable platform that can be utilized for developing new models in the shortest possible time. This platform seems to have a lot of capability and can be used to develop e-cars in the future as well for Tata. It is suspected that the next gen Tiago and Tigor too maybe based on this platform.

Maruti and Tata have been best known for cars with affordable prices in India and as a matter of fact, these brands do not really have any direct competitors against each other.Our question is, when Tata launches its new car, will it be able to take over the Alto which is already undergoing a major update? Well we need to wait and see.
