  • BIG BIKE VS. SMALL BIKE.

    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.
  • TRK 502.

    The Benelli TRK 502, which is also bound for our shores, will be a potent addition to the already formidable Benelli line-up in India. In a country where motorcycle touring is the primary form of leisure biking, the TRK 502 with its 47.6-PS and 45-Nm 500-cc liquid-cooled parallel twin (the same as in the Leoncino) and 20-litre petrol tank will definitely appeal to a whole new range of consumers. The bike features USD front forks and a rear monoshock, both with 150 mm of travel, in order to provide as plush a ride quality over long journeys as possible. The bike will also be available in a more off-road orientated version. Unlike the Tornado 302 and the Leoncino this bike will not be coming to India until the second half of 2016, which is when it will also be launched globally.
  • PEUGEOT news.

    Automatic editions of the 308 and 308 SW fitted with the 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 engine have been fettled, with CO2 emissons dropping down to 105g/km on the hatchback and 109g/km on the SW estate. Previously they were rated at 107 and 111g/km, respectively. Both Allure and GT Line versions are affected, with all cars rolling off the production lines now boasting the greater efficiency. And while the changes don’t alter the vehicle excise duty cost on the hatchback, the 308 SW drops into the Ј20 bracket, saving Ј10 per annum. That’s not an enormous reduction, however, company car drivers enjoy a one per cent reduction in the benefit-in-kind liability, with both hatchback and SW estate editions now charged at 19 per cent on the scale.

  • 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    Electric power steering is there in this model due to a reason, it is being chosen for its simplicity. It also provides fuel-economy benefits to this new model; it is also a very new thing. The steering is accurate, both for the driver and for the road, and it is also responsive enough for a vehicle of this size. The steering also imparts some deftness to the 5683-pound Tahoe. It is becoming a GM-truck hallmark, because the steering wheel is not centered with the driver's seat. It is being set slightly inboard, but one can easily ignore it or don't notice it once it is being adjust properly. In this car the HVAC system still lives beneath the glove box and impinges a bit on foot space, which is passengers sitting behind can notice. Chevy has claimed that the new Tahoe's structure and also the extra equipment used in it have raised curb weight. But by how much? Well the curb weight is raised by just over 100 pounds for four-wheel-drive models and only 18 pounds for two-wheel-drive versions. ...see full review

  • 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA-class / GLA250 / GLA45 AMG
    The acceleration of GLA-250 is not so impressive but is consistent whatsoever. A 258 lb-ft of twist arrive can be attained at 1200rpm and can go up till 4000 rpm. At the very beginning a steady pull can be achieved which makes it consistent. The only transmission which is common to all the versions of GLA, that is the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, uses this high value of torque only when it is required. It is used only during the extremely high throttle applications only. Mercedes people claim that for a four wheel drive it takes 0 to 60 of 7.1 seconds, which we think might fall down below 7 while we will drive it. ...see full review

  • 2015 Mercedes- Benz C300/ C400 Sedan Class
    While on the steering of C250, we immediately got the resemblance feel of that of the S- Class in its interior too. The Dashboard houses five round vents out of those three designed in the center of the console ending in 8.4-inch multimedia screen (For models without multimedia package it is seven inches). The look and quality of the basic yet softer black plastic syncs well, however, is finer as compared to the CLA class. One can easily upscale the interiors even finer with wood or aluminum accented trim and leather finish. The switchgear was found to have a better hi tech equipment feel that was premium in its class. An ergonomically designed guard is placed over the Comand control wheel; good for those who are familiar with Benz Command info system. With a simple finger gestures, you can operate the infotainment functions through touchpad housed in the decorative wheel. ...see full review
