  • CBR 300R.

    Possibly the most awaited Honda motorcycle in India, the CBR 300, when it does make its appearance on our shores, will take the fight straight to the Yamaha YZF-R3 and KTM RC 390. It is powered by a 286-cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine.
  • Caponord 1200 Rally.

    At EICMA, Aprilia launched the Caponord 1200 Rally, which is a further variation of the Caponord 1200 that is already available (including in India). The Caponord 1200 Rally features ride-by-wire, dual-channel ABS, Aprilia Traction Control, Aprilia Dynamic Damping and Aprilia Cruise Control. Power comes from the 125-PS 1200 V-twin that propels the regular Caponord 1200.

    We see it quite often at the racetrack, especially in club races where classes are mixed: Rider on small bike passes rider on big bike in seemingly every corner, only to be passed back right away on the next straight. Even if the power difference is not that great between the two bikes, the contrast between corner speed and straightaway speed of the two bikes becomes magnified as each bike is ridden to maximize its advantages. The reality of the situation is that the outright maximum cornering speed between any two bikes is not that significantly different, provided both are on similar tires. If the tires are similar, both bikes should be capable of the same lateral acceleration (limited by the friction coefficient of the tires) and corner speed. Why do we see such a contrast in how the bikes are ridden? On an underpowered bike, the quickest way around the track is to maximize corner speed, in turn getting onto each straight with as much speed as possible. This is accomplished by completing the corner with as large an arc as possible, which converts lateral acceleration into maximum corner speed. For a typical single-radius corner, this means entering as wide as possible to maximize entry speed, turning in to the apex with little trail- braking, and keeping the bike at maximum lean with a constant radius until the very exit of the corner. In contrast, the quickest lap times on a more powerful bike are usually found by maximizing acceleration onto each straight and taking advantage of that power; this is achieved by sacrificing some corner speed to pick the bike up and apply the throttle earlier at the exit. For that same single-radius corner, this means a tighter entry, more trail-braking to a slightly later apex, with a tighter arc and less corner speed to get the bike up off the side of the tire as quickly as possible. As we found out in our displacement test last year where we compared the Yamaha YZF-R6, Suzuki GSX-R750, and Kawasaki ZX-10R, it’s not so much that the smaller bikes have a handling advantage over the bigger bikes but rather it’s how each bike is ridden to play to its strength or weakness in the power department. Using data from our AiM Solo GPS lap timer, we could see differences in line and cornering speeds between the three bikes, just as you would expect given the horsepower of each. While a few horsepower here or there might not seem like it should impact line choice signifi- cantly, in practice even a small difference can significantly change how a particular corner or series of corners is negotiated. And the contrast between a lightweight bike and a literbike can be astonishing: We’ve encountered certain corners where the entry line is several feet different on an SV650 than it is on a 1000, for an example. Finding the optimum line to match the power of your bike does require some experimentation. The wide radius and high corner speed that less powerful bikes require typically brings with it a higher risk of a high-side crash in the middle of the corner just as the throttle is opened, and the safer option is to start with the tighter entry and lower corner speed of the big-bike line and work from there, adding more corner speed and a wider entry with practice. If you are looking at sector times on data, don’t forget to factor in any time gained or lost on the succeeding straight, which may or may not offset time saved in the corner itself. Given the contrast in lines between different bikes, the key point to remember is that the optimum line for your bike may be very different from the bike in front of you, and it’s quite often a mistake to blindly follow another rider at the track. Even if you are riding the same model of bike, the power difference may be enough that you can take advantage of a different line to be quicker, and that line may work to a further advantage when it comes time to make a pass. When you ride at the track, what bike you are on will at least in part determine what lines you should be taking, and you should try different options with that in mind. And if you change bikes and move to a more or less powerful machine- or even make modifications to the same bike for more power-know that the lines you had been using for years might need to be altered appropriately.

  • 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    Now let us have a look at the fuel economy of this Chevrolet model, Chevy claims that the revised V-8 in this Tahoe model will operate in four-cylinder mode more often than before, and if you're easy on the throttle and can cruising along, then the engine will stay in V-4 for a much longer time than you expect. The estimate of the EPA fuel-economy can be said to be of 16 mpg city and 22 on the highway for a four-wheel-drive versions; the rear-drivers too get the same city mileage but at the same time they get one additional mpg on the highway. ...see full review

  • 2015 Porsche Macan S / Turbo
    There is a single gearbox that is automatic. The four- wheel driveline has been imported from the Ceyenne and it powers the rear wheels all the times through an automated multiplate clutch that is housed at the end of the transmission. Both the traction and the handling are improved by the Porsche's ABD, PTM and PSM that temporarily breaks one or two wheels. There is also heavy duty controlled launch and algorithms for both powertrain and chassis. For greater speed and acceleration there are both the analog as well as the digital timers. ...see full review

    This small giant 4200-pound "Mini manufactured mostly of tubular-steel frame covered by carbon-fiber panels is packed to chassis rafters with a 3.0-liter, engine from BMW diesel creating 300 hp and 516 lb-ft torque. It is fitted with a countless radiator, six-speed manual gearbox, and reservoir bottles like things that look like kidney-dialysis machines. It puts more known hardware than space Apollo lunar shuttle. This is a fitting because from among the desolate dunes and peaks of Chile's crazy Atacama Desert the place where this Mini ALL4 rally Racing recently concluded to victory 2014 Rally, the vehicles two-man crew were most of the times almost isolated as people who trod the lunar shuttle. It meant they needed real serious kit to go by. ...see full review
