Ather Energy, the Bangalore-based electric two-wheeler manufacturer has officially discontinued the Ather 340 electric scooter from its portfolio. The brand has announced the decision on its social media channels while has delisted the scooter from its official website.

The dismissal of the Ather 340 has been decided on the fact that the brand’s flagship scooter Ather 450 has more demand in the market when compared to the former. Though being priced higher than the Ather 340, the Ather 450 flagship scooter has witnessed 99% of the total number of scooters sold by the brand in the past months. The Ather 450 can be availed by the customers at a price tag of INR 1.13 lakhs (ex-showroom).

Posting on social media, Ather Energy officials stated: “99% of our customers prefer the Ather 450 with higher specification. So we are saying goodbye to the Ather 340. We are glad that people prefer superior experience and now we can focus all our energies on the Ather 450 and our future products.”

Though Ather 340 was one of the affordable offerings from the brand, it did lag certain interesting features offered to its older sibling Ather 450. Since only 1% of the total sales has been witnessed by Ather 340, still, the brand has promised to provide future support as well as other updates to its respective customers.

Certain reports also suggest that the brand will be offering an all-new entry-level variant in its electric scooters portfolio though no official confirmation has been made as of yet. In addition to discontinuing the Ather 340, the brand has also updated the Ather 450 with ECO Mode that has increased its range by 75km.

The addition of 10km of the range will further offer the urban customers something more to look out for. Other OTA updates made to the Ather 450 that has been made recently includes the addition of a second trip meter in addition to colour TFT dashboard as well as “guide me home” headlamps.

Honda’s CB Unicorn 160 failed to mark its presence in the Indian market. Now, because of the poor sales figures in recent times, the company has decided to discontinue the CB Unicorn 160 in India. Few dealers in Mumbai have confirmed the unavailability of the sports commuter and they have no information regarding the restocking of the bike.

After the CBR150R, CB Trigger, CB Dazzler, CB Twister, Eterno scooter, the CB Unicorn 160 is the next addition to the Honda’s discontinued vehicles. The CB Unicorn 160 was introduced as a successor to the CB Unicorn 150 but the customers still preferred buying the Unicorn 150. With an ex-showroom price of INR 76,000, the CB Unicorn 160 was one of the most affordable bikes as compared to its rivals, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer 155  and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160.

Despite attractive pricing, the company was only able to sell an approximate 13,200 units last fiscal whereas the X-Blade sold close to 4,000 bikes in just May 2019. By introducing the Unicorn 160, the company stopped manufacturing the 150 but after some time they relaunched the Unicorn 150.

Honda Unicorn 160 was powered by a 162.71cc single-cylinder engine that was first shared by the Hornet in a different state of tune. Unicorn 160 was good for 13.82 BHP of maximum power at 8000 rpm and 13.92 Nm of maximum torque at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The refined motor claims around 45-50 kmpl of mileage on the Unicorn 160. The top speed is limited to 106 kmph due to more emphasis on mileage. The commuter-spec motorcycle was available with 80/100 front and 110/80 rear tyres. The motorcycle is still listed on the official website of Honda, though it is expected that the brand will remove it in the coming days.

According to a recent report by Financial Express, Yamaha has temporarily discontinued the YZF-R15S from the Indian market. The reason for discontinuation is the unavailability of ABS in the model, that too with a reason that the 149cc engine of the motorcycle is not being shared with any of the other motorcycles listed under the Yamaha lineup.

The R15S was a decent selling product and dealers were happy taking care of the customers who wanted supersport-inspired engine dynamics and regular motorcycle riding seat. Unlike the Fazer 150 that will need a totally different setup to adjust with the new FZ-S legacy, the YZF-R15S could also share some of the dynamics with new R15 V3 to bring back a decently-priced R-series model.

The current-gen R15 V3 carries INR 1.40 lakh worth price tag, leaving behind all the expectations that buyers had with a sweet INR 1.25 lakh on-road price bracket. Taking away the premium features and detuning the engine to some extent can help Yamaha bring the next-generation model of the R15S series.

The upgraded Yamaha R15S could feature single-channel ABS, FZ-inspired console and many such cost-cutting measures. The MT-15 is currently available with single-channel ABS and part sharing will not be a problem at all. When it comes to the Fazer lineup, it seems like the brand will permanently discontinue the 150cc model in the Indian market.

Yamaha YZF-R15S Specs

  • Displacement – 149 cc
  • Max. Power – 17 HP @ 8500 rpm
  • Max. Torque – 15 Nm @ 7500 rpm
  • Number of Cylinders – 1
  • Number of Gears – 6
  • Seat Height – 800 mm
  • Ground Clearance – 160 mm
  • Kerb/Wet Weight – 134 kg
  • Fuel Tank Capacity – 12 litres
  • Top Speed – 131 kmph (Approx.)
  • Front Brake – 267mm Single Disc
  • Rear Brake – 220mm Single Disc
  • Front Suspension – Telescopic Foks
  • Rear Suspension – Monoshock
  • Front Tyre – 90/80-17
  • Rear Tyre – 130/70 R17

Tata Discontinues Indica & Indigo in India: Tata Motors recently ceased production of Indica and Indigo due to low sales and tough competition of products in this segment. Not even a single unit was produced in April 2018, resulting in shrinking of entry-level Tata lineup.

According to sales report of Tata Motors, only 2583 units of Indica and 1756 units of Indigo were sold in FY 2018. The numbers are much lower when compared to Tiago and Tigor, both seen as perfect replacements for dated models. After sales support and service facilities will stay open for both these products. The model first arrived in 1998 and thus, completed two decades of success in the Indian market.

Tata Discontinues Indica Hatchback & Indigo Sedan

Tata Indica was launched with a purpose of rivalling Maruti 800 in 1998 and thus, pricing it INR 30,000 under Maruti 800 helped them establish an effective market space. Indica V2 became super hit due to refined drive in 2001 and for many years, the success story continued in the same manner.

Indigo was launched in order to bring sedan lovers into Tata family and that was an impressive step till the arrival of length benchmark for taxes. In their life cycle, both products were made available with petrol as well as diesel engine while last days of Indica and Indigo were cab market-oriented with 1.4L diesel engine.

Tata Motors tried their luck with Indica inspired Bolt and Zest in India but both models never made into the top-selling products of India. Apart from that, their newly launched design language can be seen on Tiago and Tigor, leading them successfully to the fourth position in terms of overall sales. Tiago is Tata’s best selling product and will claim around 1 lakh annual sales with its current numbers. Tata Nano is their most affordable product while Hexa claims the flagship status.

Yamaha discontinued the YZF-R3 in India as Indian government imposed a ban on the sale of BS3 vehicles in India from April 1. Yamaha also removed the R3 from their official website in India. It was being imported as a knocked-down kit from Indonesia and was not BS4 ready. This was quite disappointing as even Benelli has entered the segment with 302R on sale in the country.

As per the latest details available, Yamaha is working on BS4 variant of R3 in Indonesia and its updated model will be launched in India by December 2017. The new edition is expected to carry new shades and graphic enhancements while the engine would stay the same 321 cc, 2-cylinder unit. Though the chances are too thin, Yamaha might also introduce ABS as an option in India.

2017 YZF-R3 comes with amazing shades (Matt Grey, Matt Black) in selective markets and the return of Racing Blue is a sure shot fact for India. Yamaha offers the same on all sport series motorcycles. The White shade with Yellow graphics even look exciting from every angle. Engine of Yamaha R3 comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox while addition of slipper clutch is the next big possibility. The additions and changes in the motorcycle will definitely result in higher price tag.

Apart from Yamaha R3, company even removed the long selling FZ16 from the official website. Its discontinuation has been confirmed as the old 153 cc engine was not converted to BS4 compliant version. The Yamaha FZ family is now fully fuel injected while SZ-RR uses the same engine with carburetor setup. They have updated the shade for every existing product except the most loved Yamaha motorcycle, the R15.

A recent word with Shaman Triumph, Mumbai uncovered the fact that Triumph Daytona 675 was discontinued after the halt in sales of BS3 compliant vehicles came into action. The performance specific Daytona 675R was also discontinued with the same terms.

They have been receiving certain queries regarding the purchase of this motorcycle but unfortunately, Triumph has not even delivered a single unit for this super sport motorcycle. This even creates confusion regarding the sale of old generation Triumph Street Triple. The report was first confirmed by one of our readers Jagdish Swamy. Good news is that Triumph will soon unveil the Daytona 765 & 765R with the all-new 765cc engine which also powers the 2017 Street Triple series.

Triumph Motorcycles India recently launched the Street Triple 765 with a price tag of INR 8.50 lakh. Triumph Daytona 675 was powered by a three-cylinder engine producing 118 PS and 70.2 Nm of torque. The motorcycle was the most powerful one of its segment, further gaining performance through just 167 kg of dry weight.

It had a 17.4 liter fuel tank, making it good for longer rides than most other of its segment. Daytona 675R was even better with added goodies like quick-shifter and carbon fiber inserts in body panels.

Triumph is updating its lineup in a phased manner and it is safe to expect a 765cc Daytona in the coming months. That will make it even more effective among others as most manufacturers are shifting to bigger engines in the middleweight segment.

Daytona 675 has the most impressive design around its price tag, challenging the likes of Ducati 959 Panigale and other beautifully crafted liter class sport bikes in terms of head turning ability. The motorcycle came with Brembo brakes, premium USD suspension and standard switchable ABS.

After the GST impact many companies seem to have been updating their price range and making changes to the current line-up. Meanwhile Tata Motors also is trying to revamp their range of models with Safari Storme still on sale and Tata Safari DiCOR discontinued.

Under these changes even the Tata Indigo and Indica eCS websites have been under maintenance. While the Safari DiCOR is a good performing SUV, The Tata Indica eCS and Indigo have been a low performing in the Indian market. The price list of both the hatchback and the sedan have been ceased and their pages seem to be under maintenance on their official website.

This is not surprising given the fact that Tata has already found two worthy offerings in Tata Tiago and Tigor range of hatchback and compact sedan. They offer both updated latest generation design and good technology to ensure fuel efficiency.

Some news also had broken than Tata Indica and Indigo are planned to be discontinued. Also with the introduction of Bolt and Zest sedans, Tata has shifted their marketing efforts on the other side of the equation. The company seems to be following the most logical order of economies of scale.

Tata has updated their product range by a big margin and seems to be concentrating on their better performing efficient product ranges. The decision to discontinue Tata Safari DiCOR is also one such step. By focusing on their newer more successful models, Tata is going to target the market with richer, better perceived products.

Not only will this uplift their brand image, it will also yield higher returns on their products. All this seems as a sound movie as the Tata range of cars also needed a lot of updates in the recent past. And the company seems to be making no mistakes about it.

Ford Endeavour series is now available in just three variants in India. Ford has discontinued the manual variants of the SUV and it is now available with only automatic gearbox. The move came after all other cars of the segment were ready to drop some lakhs from their present day price tags due to the upcoming GST slabs.

Cars coming under the SUV category will now attract lower tax rates and Ford Endeavour will definitely fall in this section. The existing three variants are 2.2L 4×2 Trend, 2.2L 4×2 Titanium and 3.2L 4×4 Titanium. All of these are equipped with a 6-speed automatic gearbox while features vary considerably within all three variants.

The range now starts at INR 25.49 lakh for the base variant while goes up to INR 31.50 lakh for the 3.2L engine. Ford proudly calls the new Endeavour as its most capable SUV and features listed inside the car would not let them bow down in front of any car in it’s segment.

The 2.2L, 4-cylinder engine on the car is good for 157.8 BHP at 3200 rpm and 385 Nm at 1600-2500 rpm. This engine can now only be bought with a 2-wheel drive option. Trend variant lacks the premium features that are offered in the higher placed (INR 28.62 lakh) Titanium variant.

The bigger 3.2L, 5-cylinder engine on the Endeavour is good for 197.3 BHP at 3000 rpm and 470 Nm at 1750-2500 rpm. The car measures 4892 mm in length, 1860 mm in width and 1837 mm in height. Ford claims a 225 mm ground clearance for the flagship SUV.

It rivals none other than Toyota Fortuner in the Indian market. Both the cars are the closest possible competitors and choosing one out of them would be a difficult decision. The important feature that makes Ford Endeavour unique is it’s semi automatic parking system in the top spec model.

Mahindra has removed the Scorpio Automatic (only available with S10 2WD and 4WD) from their official website (pricing and details). The same has been confirmed by Scorpio’s official Twitter handle. The company however has not stated any reason justifying the discontinuation.

Mahindra-Scorpio-1

But many possible reasons can include poor demand of the automatic variant, some internal component sourcing issues and the possibility of a new 6-speed automatic gearbox engine in the works. The news can be correlated with a previous report stating that a new 6-speed gearbox Aisin version for Automatic Scorpio was planned by the company for the next-gen model.

Mahindra-Scorpio-Automatic-variants-discontinued-2

Also the XUV500 which is the most advanced sibling to Mahindra Scorpio already has a more refined 6-speed Aisin automatic gearbox while the discontinued Scorpio Automatic was equipped with a 6-speed torque converter from DSI.

The XUV500 gets the same engine as Mahindra Scorpio but it still is slightly more advanced with transverse mounted powerful engine. The most likely strategy for the company seems that they will introduce a new face-lifted Scorpio with 6-speed Aisin automatic gearbox and it is rumored to be mated to mHawk 140 2.2 L turbo diesel engine.

Mahindra-Scorpio-4

The engine is expected to produce a maximum power of 140 bhp and a torque of 330 Nm. The changes seen are not exactly unexpected because the Scorpio line-up was yet to get an update after the launch of 2014 second-gen Scorpio. So the update seems obvious to keep up with the pace of technological advancement. The new updated models are expected to make it to market by this year end or early next year.
