Bajaj has been known for rolling out some of the most extraordinary updates and the one offered to the Pulsar 180 surely seems massive. The 2019 Pulsar 180F has been in the news from last few days, and now the key details have leaked before its official launch in India. Borrowing the style tactics from its elder sibling 220F, the Pulsar 180F gets a price tag of INR 86,500 (ex-showroom Pune), which is INR 1500 more than the standard variant, all thanks to the new fairing. The 180F is reportedly to officially roll out in the market in this month itself. The rumoured launch date is February 18 (not confirmed).

According to the recent reports, the 180F will get single-channel ABS in March 2019. This is a massive upgrade considering its price tag and one can expect a price jump of INR 6000-7000 for the ABS variant. The new updates go all the way to the fairing as well as some new graphics, though, there have been no changes made to the mechanical bits. The Bajaj Pulsar 180F continues to be powered by a 180cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine capable of churning out a maximum power figure of 17 bhp and an utmost torque of 14.22 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Coming to the new graphics and colours, the Bajaj Pulsar 180F has been spotted in two colours: Gloss Black with Red Logos and Matte Silver with orange logos. The suspension duties haven’t been altered for the 180F and it gets the same 260mm disc brake at the front and a 230mm disc at the rear. The unofficial pre-bookings for the bike are now open with a token amount of INR 1000 at some of the Bajaj dealerships across India. Popular YouTube channel named Dino’s Vault has already given the first ride review. You can click on the banner below to check out the video to find out more about the highly anticipated 180F.

2019 Maruti Baleno RS is now listed on the official website. The car now comes with the addition of sporty components to the front section as all remaining angles are yet to be disclosed by the brand. The front now comes with supercar-inspired black inserts in the bumper, leaving just a small section for the LED fog light housing that could have also been missed for a premium performance-car feel. The number plate sits right in the centre of the bumper division and faux splitter with black finish is seen under the bumper. The car is seen with the popular Red shade on the official website.

2019 Maruti Baleno RS Officially Revealed

Maruti Suzuki offers the 2019 Baleno RS as a direct rival to Volkswagen Polo GT. However, the price difference between both the models brings a direct advantage to the Japanese brand. Polo GT TSI comes with an impressive dual-clutch gearbox and thus, the high price is justified at all costs for those who need ageless design and refined auto gearbox feel. As the automatic variant of regular 2019 model of Baleno Alpha costs INR 8,77,299 (ex-showroom), expecting the 2019 variant of Baleno RS to get a price tag of INR 9 lakh would not be a wrong guess at all.

At this price, buyers can even raise their budget by INR 1 lakh and get the die-hard performer named Abarth Punto from Fiat. However, the low number of touchpoints do not favour the performance hatch’s position among the rivals. Baleno RS is powered by a 998cc, four-cylinder engine producing 100 HP and 150 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. On the other hand, Volkswagen Polo GT TSI is powered by a 1197cc engine, producing 105 HP of maximum power and 175 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

2020 Mahindra Thar Spotted Again (New Photos): Mahindra Thar is preparing for the upcoming BS6 emission and Indian safety norms. The already spied model with upgrades to its design was seen again at a petrol station. The difference that everybody understands from the closer look is the width of the new Thar, creating a Hummer-like experience with an extra-wide body and missing front and rear styling parts. The bumpers will definitely make into the production version as exposed tires and missing protectors on both the ends create a hazardous situation for the pedestrians on the front and fellow drivers as well as riders at the rear.

2020 Mahindra Thar Front View

The front comes with twin round headlamps and a wider than ever grille, retaining the seven iconic slats that are shorter in length. The grille is completely redesigned and may feel even better when the bumper comes into action on the upcoming Thar. The car comes with wide front fenders that can support bigger tires in comparison to the present generation Thar. These features are very useful in off-road driving conditions as more grip is available for the effective system to take on rough surfaces with ease. The rear section is available with a canopy on the spied model of 2020 Mahindra Thar. The extended tire travel through the updated front suspension is another big addition.

2020 Mahindra Thar Side View

Mahindra is expected to make visible changes to the interior, offering better materials and more room for the rear passengers. The Thar is seen without the tailgate-mounted rear wheel in its testing phase. Mahindra Thar is currently using a 2498cc, four-cylinder diesel engine producing 105 BHP of power and 247 Nm of torque. The engine may not be used on the new version, most probably due to the availability of a smaller 1.5L motor on the Marazzo that brings a reduction in emissions and is also more powerful with 300 Nm of solid torque.

2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno has been launched in India for INR 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom). The car now comes with a different front grille, redesigned bumper, and updated fog lamp section. The alloy wheels are all-new, flaunting machine-finished feel with the black and chrome combination. The changes within the interior include black/blue combination on the seats and doors as well as the new Smartplay Studio system. The limited number of changes list the new Baleno under the facelifted list of products.

The car now comes with rear parking sensors, speed alert system and seatbelt reminder as standard on all the variants. The safety features like dual airbags and ABS are also available across the Baleno lineup. Here is the new price list for Maruti Baleno.

2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno

Maruti Baleno is the best selling hatchback of its segment, rivalling none other than Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo in its segment. The impressive legroom and loads of boot space help Baleno score impressive numbers among both the rivals. The 1.2L, four-cylinder petrol engine on the car is good for 83 HP at 6000 rpm and 115 Nm at 4000 rpm.

The same engine is available in the new WagonR, along with the other available features like the new Smartplay Studio infotainment system. The 1.3-litre diesel engine generates maximum power and maximum torque of 75 hp and 190 nm respectively. Maruti Suzuki is updating their NEXA lineup as just the Ignis is remaining without the 2019 facelift. The rival products fall in the same INR 5-9 lakh price range.

The fifth generation, 2019 Toyota Supra is now officially available in the UK market for £52,695 (INR 48.20 lakh, direct conversion). The car was completely revealed through a video few days before its official unveiling. Also, the official banner image clearly defined the sporty character of the new Supra before the brand even confirmed its entry. The stretched daytime running lights, three-section LED headlight and long yet impressive bonnet makes the new Supra an exciting option for its segment. The sharp front bumper is well designed, split into three different sections for adding some appeal.

The diffuser seen at the front comes with gloss black finish while the slope of the roof looks amazing from any possible angle. The brake cooling vents are seen at all ends, improving the most crucial element when getting a car that loves sprinting. Toyota Supra is developed alongside the BMW Z4 and thus, the engine for both the cars is exactly the same. The 6-cylinder motor on the BMW Z4 is good for 335 BHP while the same output available on the new Supra guarantees the best ever driving feel. Also, the car comes with rear-wheel drive as standard. The 0-100 kph sprint comes in just 4.3 seconds while the rear comes with an active differential.

Toyota Supra features massive black alloy wheels, twin chrome exhaust exists, and impressive rear LED pattern. Toyota will also offer the 2.0L turbocharged engine for regular users once the premium variant catches up with the performance fans. The most powerful 6-cylinder motor will use an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Basically, the new Toyota Supra is a badge-engineered BMW Z4 for the performance-loving petrolheads of the United Kingdom. Along with other impressive products from Toyota, the chances of Supra entering India are very thin, or you can say, next to zero.

Yamaha India is preparing to launch the FZS Version 3 in India on January 21, 2019. The event will take place in Bangalore in the presence of Yamaha Motor India’s Chairman Motofumi Shitara. As Yamaha is known to organize press events only when they have something major to announce, the new product comes as an update to the bestselling 150cc FZ motorcycle in India. The design is completely different from the second generation model and leaked set of images show LED headlight and additional side fairing on the motorcycle.

The all-new design and refined 149cc engine may not prove that effective this time as Yamaha has moved away from the bulky streetfighter design to something that is more commuter-centric. As liquid cooling would have definitely raised the cost and so will ABS, Yamaha will play carefully with their FZ series. The present positioning of FZ V2 at INR 81,540 (ex-showroom) is a crucial point as no other brand offer fuel injection at this point. Yamaha is also renaming their FZ series to MT in most of the countries. For India, they can simultaneously retail both the options by leaving the affordable streetfighter performance to FZ series and putting MT-15 at a premium point. India-Spec MT-15 was recently spotted testing at a different location.

Yamaha MT-09 is the only available model with this nomenclature, clearing the buyers about the purpose of bringing the lightweight MT-15 into India. On the other hand, Yamaha understands that India being a volume centric market first needs the FZS Version 3 with more power and ABS. Staying under INR 1 lakh in any case, the new FZ will target almost two times the number of customers in comparison to the MT-15. However, Yamaha fans have proved that price may not be a barrier for them as R15 V3 scored more than 15,000 units in October 2018. The FZS Version 3 and MT-15 may collectively score double the number once launched in the country.

Triumph Rocket III holds the title of carrying the world’s largest motorcycle engine under the fuel tank. It was discontinued from the Indian market and internationally, the model is ready to receive a complete overhaul in 2019. The next generation Triumph Rocket III is preparing itself for a new frame, design enhancement and a bigger than ever 2.5L, three-cylinder engine. The new motorcycle was first revealed to the dealers in October while an uncamouflaged test mule was recently spotted on the public roads. The new 2.5L inline-3 engine is said to generate a massive 180 BHP and 230 Nm of torque.

The maximum torque is available at just 3000 rpm. The design details reveal a huge fuel tank, bigger than ever engine cooler, massive USD front forks, dual Brembo M50 front disc brakes, huge seat with enough padding to absorb the vibrations well and almost negligible rear seat size in comparison to the front seat. The twin headlight design is still very impressive for a flagship cruiser. Triumph Rocket III rivals none other than Ducati xDiavel in the country. Even this competition is indirect in comparison with the Rocket due to the huge difference in engine size for both the bikes. Even Harley cruisers feel light in comparison to the new Rocket. The exhaust design closeup reveals a premium metallic finish for the motorcycle.

The single-sided swingarm, traction control, cornering ABS and riding modes guarantee impressive performance from the motorcycle. The best ever factor for Rocket III is that is will be made lighter to achieve better overall control than just drag-style performance. The international launch will open the doors for Triumph Rocket to India and thus, those loving huge cruiser and unique engine size can get their hands on the new model in 2019. The design upgrades will help Triumph get an improved overall stance and better overall performance. The last-gen variant weighs 367 kg.

Yamaha FZ V3 ABS has been spotted for the first time in its production-ready guise at a dealership. The recently spied images give clear hints of a Yamaha FZ25-inspired streetfighter, getting all-new exhaust cover, extended tank shrouds with faux air intakes, and a different front fascia finish. The headlight area now flows more like the quarter-liter machine, further feeling similar when considering the front wheel section with bigger disc and flowing alloy wheel design. However, the DRL section is differentiated from the primary headlight. The engine bay of FZ V3 ABS is exactly similar to the current generation FZS, clearing the fact that changes are visually appealing and more like a facelift than a complete overhaul.

Yamaha FZ V3 ABS may bring more power through the same setup as the present generation model has the most decent output among all others of its segment. The console used here looks similar to FZ25 and dual disc brakes may arrive as standard on the FZ Version 3. Apart from the front fascia, the spy shots received earlier helped us make the remaining guesses. The tail section gets a new tire hugger, familiar taillight design and grab-rail sort of finish after the pillion seat. Yamaha has always shared parts among multiple motorcycles to keep the cost under check and this generation is also a similar story. It seems like the rear tire is also an upgraded 140-section unit from FZ25.

Some of the noticeable upgrades will include extended fairing that connects to the fuel tank shrouds, reworked handlebar position promoting straight riding position and a slightly lower rear section for easy pillion seating. Yamaha is also expected to offer a single, long seat for the model. The current generation 149cc, single cylinder engine is good for 13.2 PS at 8000 rpm and 12.8 Nm at 6000 rpm. The low 9.5:1 compression may get raised for better output in the next generation model. Yamaha FZ-S weighs 133 kg with the rear disc brake and thus, expecting a similar or even higher wet weight for the third generation model is obvious. The dual-channel ABS is expected to be shared with the new Yamaha R15 V3 ABS.

Yamaha FZ Version 3 is once again in the news, this time caught testing in the clearest possible, design-revealing form. The front is clearly inspired from the FZ25, getting a similar front fascia with compact headlight section and raised indicator placement. The alloy wheel design is shared with the present generation dual disc model while the rear tire is different from the one seen on FZ25. The sidewall clears that most cycle parts will be shared with FZ V2 instead of the quarter-litre model. However, the visual upgrades are considerable with a major change in the seating of FZ Version 3.

The split seat that looked very sporty is now missing from the motorcycle, replaced with an ideally stuffed single seat that looks comfortable from the first glimpse. The iconic metal frame-inspired panels that are seen on Yamaha FZ V2 are now replaced with a commuter style panel that runs straight into the rear seat section that now supports a single piece grab rail in comparison to the sporty two-piece unit. The rear fender is now shortened, offering a swingarm-mounted tire hugger for additional visual appeal. The parts underpinning the new body remain identical to the 2018 Yamaha FZ V2.

The biggest change comes near the fuel tank section as visible bulk has increased by a considerable margin. The fuel tank looks decent on the top section while lower area is now seen with an all-new fairing and belly protection panel. The new panel dominantly covers the engine area and can help the rider at some relief from the tiring winds that hit the knees straight on the other streetfighter models.

The 149cc engine on FZ is good for 13.2 PS and 12.8 Nm in the present generation. The engine can be tuned for more output on Yamaha FZ Version 3. The exhaust design is in line with the first generation FZ. The updated model will also get ABS as standard. FZ V3 is expected to launch in India this month as the brand recently confirmed that they will launch a new product on January 21, 2019.
