Bajaj Pulsar 300cc

Pulsar 300 cc is not reality at all and atleast the one you see in picture around the net is not pulsar 300.

There are talks that Bajaj may launch Pulsar 250 cc next with v-twin engine.

Here is the pic of one I see often referred as Bajaj Pulsar 300cc

This one is another one ..

I read at some site that it is indeed a real bike from Bajaj but that is for 125 cc named cosmic or something similar !

Bajaj Pulsar 300cc

During a conversion about new bikes in India, my friend was talking about Bajaj, India’s largest and world fourth largest two wheeler manufacturer revolutionary in India. Frankly speaking I am no fan of Bajaj Products I always believe in companies like TVS, Yamaha and Honda when it comes to biking.

Talking about my friend who alerted me about Bajaj’s upcoming release of a new powerful biking which is probably the BAJAJ PULSAR 300CC. At first it was 100CC then 120,150,180,200 and now its 220cc.

So now a 300 cc bike for Indian roads? Are we power drivers? Already Price of fuel is sky rocketing while traffic in parallel increases. Soon I went through a research over internet about Bajaj launching the new 300cc bike to confirm the news.

At last I concluded it is PURELY HOAX. Bajaj has officially not announced any plans to launch 300cc right now in India. So if you come across any news about it then it’s completely one of false gossips.


Above is the picture of Virtual stimulated photography of Pulsar claiming to be 300cc bike from Bajaj.

Honda CBF Stunner

Now, it’s not exactly as I expected it to be, is the new 125 from Honda, the CBF Stunner – 11bhp, 11Nm of torque, hydraulic shocks, analog meters and regular lamps.

But where it does leave the rest of the 125s behind is in the styling stakes – it does look like a more modern Karizma really with its half front faring et al. it also gets tubeless tyres and split seats.

It is what Honda calls a sporty 125 designed to appeal to the boys in their late teens – so it gets rearset footpegs and a toe-only gear shifter. One of my colleagues rode the bike and said it doesn’t feel as fast as Honda quotes it to be - 0-60kmph in 5.2 seconds. He also mentioned it should compare well with the Gladiator in terms of performance, ride as well as handling.

More on the bike is a weeks time.. till then here are the specs from the bike’s brochure.

The New TVS FLAME Bike

The TVS Company’s is battle with the Bajaj Auto ltd, to over come the usage of new bikes in India.The company has started selling the new bike ‘Flame’ in all over India.The ex-showroom price of Flame has been fixed at Rs 48,000 in Hyderabad with disc brakes as an option.
“This is the highest technology product in the country. A three-valve bike has been rolled out earlier, but this is for the first time that a mass market roll-out is happening,” said Venu Srinivasan, Chairman and Managing Director, TVS Motor.

As per the Indian Driving Cycle (IDC) claim and Indian road condition the bike mileage of 82 km per liter. TVS Motor said that it has fixed target of 20,000 bikes to be sold every month once the bike is launched countrywide.

Honda Stunner

The ‘125 cc and above’ segment of motorcycles seems to be growing in India. The latest addition to the segment has been made by Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India. It unveiled its new model - Honda CBF Stunner, in New Delhi, on 30th June 2008. The 125 cc bike boasts 11bhp at 8000rpm, along with a torque of 11nm at 6500rpm. If that wasn’t enough, the company claims that CBF Stunner is one of the fastest 125cc motorcycles in India
It can go from standstill position to 60kmph, within a time frame of merely .2 seconds. The motorcycle has been loaded with excellent features, like front and rear tubeless tyres, alloys, half fairing and stepped up seat. Equipped with air-cooled four stroke engine, it also has raised suspension at the back. This has led to CBF Stunner being counted amongst the most attractive as well as the most loaded 125cc bikes in India.

The only problem with the bike is that the tachometer is missing. Honda CBF Stunner comes in three variants. One of them is kick start, with drum brake and alloy wheels, which will have a launch price of Rs. 47,070. Then, there is the one that has self start, with drum brake and alloy wheels, launched at a price of Rs. 49,820. The top of the end, and third, model is self start, with disc brake and alloy wheels, which will have Rs. 51,655 as its launch price. All the prices are ex. showroom Delhi.Rs 58,000 as its launch price in Hyderabad.and company giving 60kmpl millage.

First official pics: 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 and 1100S

The 2009 Ducati Monster 1100S (left) and Monster 1100 (right). Time to hit the troll road again...

The much rumoured, awaited and anticipated Ducati Monster 1100 is finally here. No more Photoshop jobs – this is the real item. The bike will be available in two versions – the standard 1100 (which weights 169kg) and the 1100S (which weighs in at 168 kilos).

Both, the 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 and 1100S get a brand-new single-sided swingarm, while the 1100S also gets higher-spec Öhlins suspension, gold-painted wheels and carbonfibre front fender. Both the bikes are fitted with the same 1100cc v-twin, which makes 95bhp at 7,500rpm and 10.5Kgm of torque at 6,000rpm.

Ducati will officially unveil the bike in Cologne, at the Intermot Show, on the 8th of October. Details on pricing and availability to follow soon…

We'd like another 30-40bhp, but the Monster 1100 is still the coolest Monster

2009 Suzuki Gladius 650 unveiled

The 2009 Suzuki Gladius 650. Not bad looking for an entry-level bike...

Suzuki have a new middleweight naked for 2009 – the Gladius Maximus. Er... no, it's actually the Suzuki Gladius 650. Powered by the SV650’s v-twin, the Gladius looks fresh and funky. The spec looks fairly basic – steel tube trellis frame, conventional fork/monoshock and… well, not much else really.

The bike weighs in at around 202kg dry, and with that 70bhp engine, the performance is definitely not going to surprise anyone. Still, for someone looking at buying their first bike, the Gladius 650 looks quite all right. Pricing, availability and other details to follow soon…

Specs and first official pics: 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000

The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 K9, with its MotoGP-inspired Titanium mufflers. Hmmm...

In the sportsbike world, the unveiling of a new Suzuki GSX-R1000, every year, is a fairly momentous occasion. Reduced weight, more power, more electronics (to safely harness all that power…), bigger/uglier exhausts and new colours (some of which can actually be quite bad). Those few things more or less sum up what we expect from new GSX-R1000s every year. And the 2009 model doesn’t disappoint.

The 2009 Suzuki GSX-R1000 gets a lighter, more compact 999cc inline-four, which delivers more power and torque and offers enhanced throttle response across the engine’s entire rpm range. The K9 GSX-R1000 engine is now more oversquare than before, and the compression ratio has also gone up from 12.5:1 to 12.8:1.

For those who may be interested, here’s a ton of technical details: The new GSX-R1000 engine employs bigger titanium valves, forged pistons, shot-peened conrods, Iridium spark plugs (for a stronger spark, for better combustion) and Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) plated cylinders integrated into the crankcase, reducing friction and improving heat transfer, durability and ring seal.

New, 12-hole fuel-injectors produce a finer fuel mist for more complete combustion, reducing fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. And as before, the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) offers push-button selection of three performance settings to suit riding conditions and personal tastes. However, the switch has now been relocated on the left handlebar control module.

The cable-operated back-torque-limiting clutch makes for efficient clutch operation with superb feel, claim Suzuki. And the new Suzuki Advanced Exhaust System (SAES) uses an under-engine chamber and low-slung, large-volume MotoGP-inspired titanium mufflers.

To ride, we're sure the K9 GSX-R1000 is brilliant as ever. But styling-wise, we wish Suzuki were doing something radically new...

The 2009 GSX-R1000’s wheelbase is 10mm shorter, the swingarm is 33mm longer, for improved high speed handling. The bike’s twin-spar frame is made of five cast sections, mated with an arched swingarm made of three castings and one-piece die-cast rear subframe. Big Piston Front (BPF) forks, with an endurance-race-proven design, deliver superb feedback and responsive, stable operation, and are very lightweight.

The rear shock absorber features adjustable rebound damping, spring preload, and both high-speed and low-speed compression damping. Twin 310mm brake discs at the front, with monoblock radial-mount four-piston calipers, handle the stopping duties. And the bike rides on 17-inch cast aluminum alloy wheels, shod with 120/70 (front) and 190/50 (rear) ZR-rated rubber.

The 2009 GSX-R1000’s kerb weight is 203 kilos. And while there is no official word on the power output, we’d say there should be at least 170 rear wheel horsepower available, so you know what the performance is going to be like…! Details on pricing and availability coming soon…
