Deliveries for the new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R has commenced across the country. Aurum Kawasaki (Delhi) has delivered the first example from their side to Mr Gurvinder and Simran Singh after holding a short ceremony at their location. The motorcycle looks lean, sharp and totally on its way to take down any faired machine that comes into the way. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R is available in a single shade and combination of Green with Gloss Black is worth praising. The side profile of the motorcycle resembles the Ninja 400 up to a certain amount while revving the engine can clear any doubts from the fellow riders.

The 636cc, four-cylinder engine is an impressive option with 130 HP at 13,500 rpm and 70.8 Nm at 11,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike weighs just 196 kg and cost INR 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the price is introductory and will rise considerably after a certain number of units. The only racer from this segment, ZX-6R rivals Yamaha YZF-R6, Suzuki GSX-R600 and Honda CBR600RR in the international market. None of the rivals is presently on sale in India, but the effective INR 9,99,900 price tag of Ninja 1000 may pose a threat to the newly launched motorcycle.

However, the motorcycle is not legal for registration and can be used only on closed circuits like racetracks. The powerful motorcycle is available with a 999cc, four-cylinder engine, producing 215 HP and 120 Nm. The best part here is the use of carbon fiber in its construction, resulting in 171.4 kg of lightweight body and 300+ kph of top speed. The architecture of HP4 Race is based on the S1000RR and those looking for an everyday sportbike can get their hands on the same for INR 18.05 lakh (ex-showroom).

KTM RC 790 is one potential product that every die-hard superbike fan is waiting for a long time. The motorcycle was imagined by SRK Designs through the digital rendering process, clearly taking hints from the now-discontinued KTM 1190 RC8 R. The rendered image comes with an underbelly exhaust that may be replaced with a new design as the small unit makes it harder to make through the tough Euro-6 norms. The front features extended fairing that is more aerodynamic in comparison to the present generation 390cc model. The lower fairing section is seen with partial black and orange finish, helping the artist leave the alloy wheels Orange without doing too much to the design.

The fuel tank stays KTM style while the rear features a sharper tail than most bikes of this segment. The arrival of KTM RC 790 will bring tough competition to the existing 600cc options like YZF-R6 and Ninja ZX-6R. In fact, the RC 790 will use a twin cylinder engine and offer the most impressive output from the engine of its kind. All other faired bikes around this segment are available with four-cylinder engines. The motorcycle in the rendered image will stay close to the real model. KTM is yet to update the smaller models and thus, the design lines from RC8 will be used on them also.

KTM 790 Duke is powered by a 799cc, twin-cylinder engine producing 105 HP at 9000 rpm and 86 Nm at 8000 rpm. The engine is compact, lightweight and helps the motorcycle register just 189 kg of weight. The RC 790, when launched, will keep the weight under 200 kg and leave the Honda CBR650R behind in terms of value for money and performance. KTM will develop a new exhaust system for the motorcycle as the one that was seen on 790 Duke is specific to the street fighter.

KTM 790 Duke Bookings Open in India for a Token Amount of INR 30,000

India’s first 2019 Suzuki Hayabusa was delivered to Mr Kaif Dosani and Mr Ameen Dosani in Mumbai on Jan 1, 2019. The shade selected was Metallic Oort Grey while unboxing of the motorcycle brought smiles on the faces of confused buyers who thought Hayabusa was under the discontinued list of products.

Suzuki Hayabusa will be discontinued from several important markets on December 31, 2018. The availability will be limited to countries like US and India where emissions norms are not as strict as European nations. Hayabusa can reach the given restricted top speed in 25.4 seconds. Internationally, the motorcycle rivals Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R while for India, the price gap of approx INR 6 lakh divides them among two different price segments. The latter is brought through the CBU route in India. The next-generation Suzuki Hayabusa is expected to use a bigger turbocharged engine for class-leading power. 2020 Suzuki Hayabusa is expected to be unveiled at EICMA in November 2019.

BMW recently launched the HP4 Race in India for INR 85 lakh. The German manufacturer is known for its reliable machines that perform extensively well in the toughest possible circumstances. If you are a fan of high-performance motorcycles with a unique approach, these five must know facts for BMW HP4 Race will blow away your mind.

5 Interesting Facts About BMW HP4 Race

1) Featherweight Frame and Body

HP4 Race measures 2070mm in length, 777mm in width and 1193mm in height. These dimensions match to almost entire SuperSport category racers available around the world. What’s astonishing here is that HP4 Race weighs just 146kg (dry) and adds 25.4kg to take on any challenge. This added weight includes 17.5-litres of fuel, tipping the scale at 171.4kg. For comparison, a motorcycle producing the same amount of power weighs around 200kg. You get KTM RC 390’s weight with a litre-class engine under the fairing.

2) Powerful Engine / Premium Inner Components

BMW HP4 Race comes with a 999cc, inline-4 engine, producing 215HP at 13,900 rpm and 120Nm at 10,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed, anti-hopping clutch with straight cut gears. What makes HP Race even more special is the use of racing camshafts, four titanium valves, and Pankl connecting rod. The engine comes with electronic racing injection and full titanium WSBK racing exhaust.

3) Engine Life / Replacement Interval

If you feel that buying this INR 85 lakh motorcycle will be the only expense, this track bike has a different story. The engine requires rebuilding (not to be confused with servicing) after a 5000km interval. The cost of rebuilding is so high that BMW recommends buying a new engine for 15,000 euros (INR 12 lakh approx). The value seen here is without import tax. The high price makes every kilometre highly expensive to ride.

4) Most Expensive Motorcycle

At INR 85 lakh, BMW HP4 Race is the most expensive motorcycle in India that you can buy from a dealership. Earlier, this record was held by Kawasaki Ninja H2R at INR 72 lakh. As both these bikes are track legal only, no extra registration charge will be applicable to both of them. In fact, you will need a towing vehicle to carry the same around different tracks or hire a professional service occasionally.

5) Missing Parts

Those who are new to track bikes, you will be amazed to see no headlight, tail light, indicators, number plates or rear mudguard on the bike. All these are not available on track bikes to keep their overall weight lower. A rear seat cowl saves additional weight by replacing the pillion seat. Above all, the frame and wheels on BMW HP4 Race are made out of carbon fibre, giving them additional strength and agility, in comparison to other track spec bikes with road legal properties.

Yamaha YZF-R1 GYTR is here to celebrate two decades of superbike dominance, with this limited edition model to be made for just 20 lucky buyers. The number is not specific to any country as Yamaha has announced that the 20 unit limited production run will consider all the European markets. The motorcycle is priced at 39,400 Euros (INR 31.65 lakh approx). GYTR here stands for Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing. The YZF-R1 has won the Suzuka 8-hour endurance race for the fourth time and also lists 2018 MotoAmerica Championship under its name. The price may seem higher for the model as this comes without adding any taxes when an Indian buyer plans to get one of the twenty units.

Apart from the unique red/white livery, Yamaha is using Ohlins FGRT 219 forks, Bridgestone tires and Brembo brakes. The track-specific model comes with limited wiring and all-new ECU for impressive throttle response. The setup comes with full titanium Akrapovic Evolution 2 exhaust and carbon fibre fairing. EICMA 2018 was the first platform for this model. The biggest mystery is how Yamaha will select only 20 buyers from a long list of interested fans with enough money to get their hands on this beautiful machine. The price will double (approx) for the Indian market as every CBU model commands around 100% of tax.

The amazing R1 legacy started 20 years back and now, they retail the stock model for INR 19.68 lakh in India. The engine powering the R1 is a 998cc, four-cylinder unit, producing 200 PS of maximum output at 13,500 rpm and 112.4 Nm at 11,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The stock bike weighs just 200 kg with the full fuel tank and thus, 1PS/kg of a power-to-weight ratio is achieved in this case. The YZF-R1 GYTR brings an even better ratio as the lightweight body and enhanced output results in an amazing ride for every single lucky buyer of the limited model.

Suzuki Hayabusa has officially left the production line after 20 successful years across the globe. The reason is shifting interest of countries towards the strict Euro 4 or equivalent emission norms that make Hayabusa illegal for production and sale. Even Japan has planned to move one step closer to cleaner air and fate of buyers is hanging on the number of units produced within or before December 2018. Yes, it may be hard to digest but Suzuki has opted to end the production for all markets at once and rely only on the number of units produced before the end of 2018.

Hayabusa GSX1300R is already not on sale in markets where emission norms have gone stricter than ever, leaving just limited markets for the remaining period. In Europe, the grace period of two years for the already on-sale models will end on December 31, 2018. However, the good news is that Suzuki is preparing a 2020 model with semi-automatic gearbox and a better design than the present generation model. The current-gen Hayabusa will be available in India till stock lasts. It is expected that the new version will be showcased at EICMA 2019 and will be launched in the following months. The design is still an unsolved mystery.

The Indian market will not require more than 200 units to survive the gap of one year. On the other hand, it also depends upon the need of US market as more buyers arising in the US will mean stock allocation changes for 2019. Hayabusa was launched with a 1299cc engine initially, producing 173 BHP in the first version. Later, the engine size was changed to 1340cc and Hayabusa became more powerful with 197 BHP of output. The motorcycle was the reason why manufacturers started producing more powerful bikes as they just wanted to break the Hayabusa’s top speed record at all costs.

Luxury motorcycle brand Ducati, has announced the launch of Panigale V4 R in India at an introductory price of INR 51,87,000 (ex-showroom India). Embodied with the maximum expression of Ducati values, racing-inspired livery and Ducati’s racing DNA, the new Panigale V4 R is a symphony of emotions and the most powerful production bike ever.

Panigale V4 R will be limited to 5 units in India and bookings for the motorcycle are now open across all Ducati dealerships in India. For bookings made before November 30, 2018, deliveries will commence in the early part of Q1 2019 – for all bookings post November, deliveries will begin in Q2 2019.

Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati said, “Riding on track is becoming more and more popular here in India. I myself saw firsthand some top talent participate at our DRE as well as the recent National cup. Panigale V4 marked an important era in Ducati’s racing journey globally and Panigale V4 R is the true embodiment of Ducati values: style, sophistication and performance. After the overwhelming response of Panigale V4 in India, we are confident that the Panigale V4 R will disrupt the racing and riding experience of biking enthusiasts in India. Merged with the essence of the Panigale V4 S and Ducati’s racing DNA, Panigale V4 R is an ultimate road-legal race bike which will definitely set a new paradigm in the motorcycle industry.”

The Panigale V4 R is a road-legal WSBK category racing bike and constitutes the technical platform for the official Ducati Superbikes that will compete in the 2019 season. The 1,103 cm3 90° V4 engine has been replaced with the 998 cm3 Desmosedici Stradale R which brings it within the displacement limits established by WSBK championship rules.

The bike features a new fairing incorporating wings elements of MotoGP origin. It also has race-grade Öhlins suspension with mechanical adjustment and an aluminium swingarm with an adjustable four-position axle. Moreover, the Front Frame has been modified to achieve the stiffness targets set by Ducati Corse. Sophisticated electronic controls borrowed from the Panigale V4 S now have revised threshold levels to make them more compatible with pro rider requirements.

The modifications extend far beyond the engine and suspension set-up: for the first time they also include an Aero Pack designed directly by Ducati Corse in close collaboration with the Ducati Style Centre to improve on-track aerodynamic efficiency.

Bookings for the new Panigale V4 R are now open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi – NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata & Chennai.
