The price of FZ16 is around 65,000 Rs. (Mumbai ex-showroom price!!) The speedometer and other indicators are completely digital. And it gives you mileage about 45-50 in normal condition. More...

       2.  Yamaha FZ-S ::

    It is the variant of FZ16. There is not a big difference in power and style. This new bike comes with a “cap” for the head lamp and new stickers. If you dislike the headlamp of fz16 ( saying that it looks ugly! ), Yamaha fz-s takes care of it. No more power in this one. Its upon you, either to choose fz16 or fz-s!!! More...

       3.  Tvs Apache RTR ::

    Personally i advise you to choose fz16 or fz-s, because now that is the only trend in current Indian bike market. Secondly It is Yamaha, will give you performance!

    It depends upon your requirement, if you want more power you may wait for  new Apache RTR 180!!! And if you are satisfied with 150cc engine i advise you to choose Yamaha!!! All you can do is, Go for test drives, feel the power by your own. also inquire the experience of after sale service of existing users.

    200 Superbikes Sold In 2008

    During the year 2008, nearly 200 superbikes have been sold in India, the first year since the launch of the superbikes by Ducati, Suzuki and Yamaha. Of the total units sold, Yamaha accounts for 107 units, while Ducati sold over 50 units. All the bikes were imported as CBU (Complete Build-up Unit)

    Discerning the growing popularity of superbikes in India, numerous multinational two-wheeler companies like Yamaha, Suzuki Motor Corp., Kawasaki and Ducati are upping its ante on this segment by lining up a series of launches this year. Even Honda recently launched its superbikes - the CBR 1000RR and CB1000R. This year 400-450 superbikes are expected to be sold.

    Suzuki has sold 26 and 29 units of Hayabusa and Intruder (priced at Rs 12.5 lakh each) since its launch in November last year. Yamaha managed to sell 107 units of R1 and MTO1 (Rs 10.5 lakh each) in 2008 as against the target of 50-60 bikes. The company is expecting 100% growth in sales of R1 and MT 01 in 2009 at 107 units.

    According to industry analysts, top-end high performance bikes constitute a super niche segment that is neither dependent too much on finance and nor much impacted by the economic slowdown. Hence, the demand for such bikes is growing in India even when other two-wheeler segments are witnessing a slowdown. In recent years, Pune-based Kinetic Motors which first took the lead with the limited launch of the 250cc, v-twin-powered Hyosung Comet in India back in 2005.

    Chevrolet Cruze By September 2009

    GM is set to launch its Cruze by the September of this Year. The Cruze is the first GM car to be based on the company’s all-new, global, Delta platform. It’s interior and exterior design was carried out under a multinational team at GM DAT in Korea.

    The car exhibits extremely delightful qualities.  It has unusual double-decker front grille, headlamps, rubber seals around the windows. The chassis of the Cruze is primarily engineered to provide high levels of comfort. The dual cockpit treatment is original and stylish. The quality of materials and finishes is also impressive. The switchgear, steering wheel, stalks and headlamps switch resemble those present in the more expensive Opel Insignia -with a unique impressive audio and climate control layout.

    A huge glovebox, big door bins and excellent centre console storage sit alongside Audi-like air vents, a nicely shaped steering wheel rim and impressive audio system.

    When it is launched in India, the Cruze will come with a choice of a 138bhp 1.8-litre petrol and a 147bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine, with an option of an automatic transmission as well. The 1.8 petrol version is the least desirable of the two -it occasionally stutters and has to be wrung out above 3000rpm before it really begins to move along. It didn’t quite live up to the performance suggested by the figures. (ACI)
