  • DUCATI MULTISTRADAS.

    When I had a chance to try out the Ducati Multistrada Pikes Peak last year I was incredibly impressed, the concept of four bikes in one is bandied about quite commonly when referring to the Multistrada and is a good reflection of the bike’s abilties. The current Multistrada is a large bike with a wet weight of 235kg - relatively light all things considered. I found the seat height tall, although it is adjustable between 825 and 845mm and couldn’t get both feet flat to the ground, but balance and low speed maneuvering were both very good. Heated grips of a chilly morning are priceless and the centre-stand is a nice touch, although probably not for everyone. They are part of the Touring pack which includes heated grips, panniers and center-stand. The Multistrada S benefits from the Ducati Skyhook Suspension and also includes a few nifty additional features like full LED headlamps, including the Ducati Cornering Lights (DCL). The braking systems on the S is also an upgraded Superbike spec system, with M50 Brembo front calipers on 330mm rotors, with a dual piston Brembo rear caliper on 265mm rotor. Also standard is the Ducati Multimedia System, which uses Bluetooth to accept incoming calls, alert you to messages and control your music, when synced with your other devices, displayed via the S’s full colour TFT display. On the bike, performance from the DVT Testastretta starts low and tractor-like, with strong but controllable low end-torque, and between 4000 and 5000rpm transforms into sportsbike like drive - in fact if you want to move off in a hurry try opening that throttle wide open, it’s exhilarating. Just keep the revs up past 4000rpm where it transitions into much smoother running, with slight vibes felt through the ‘bars, but not in an annoying fashion - you’ll have all the torque you could wish for, for rapid overtaking or acceleration. You can also modify each of the riding modes for a variety of settings, where I was using the baseline settings, which means you can have each mode set up for specific conditions, whether that’s suspension, power delivery, ABS, DTC or DWC. The Skyhook Suspension was a standout and in Sport mode with one helmet (the one rider, no luggage setting) I could feel the forks providing more support during heavy braking, only to soften as I came to a stop. Through the local twisties the Skyhook suspension proved itself, with an ability to easily absorb road irregularities. Coming into corners needs more effort than your regular sportsbike, with the Multistrada obviously carrying its weight taller and taking more input to follow your chosen path. It wasn’t the sharpest on tip in, with the standard settings - but that’s something you can tweak thanks to the level of adjustability on offer. The taller bike also means you’re leaning over further, which was easy and confidence inspiring but lends itself to coming into your corners nice and wide.You can feel that you’re relying on a system of suspension that essentially has a mind of its own but as you get used to that fact and show more confidence in the bike it only gets better and better. Part of what sets the newest Skyhook Suspension (DSS) system apart is the Evo suffix, with the previous sensors now joined by the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which is used to provide cornering ABS to the Brembo braking system with Bosch 9ME ABS unit. This means the DSS Evo system is able to take into account your lean angle when calculating the ideal suspension response. It’s high tech and the results on the road speak for themselves. I was hoping to take my wife for a ride as a pillion to get an opinion on riding two-up, but with all my testing mid-week unfortunately couldn’t make it happen. Now it’s quite possibly you’re thinking to yourself, why spend the extra $4000 on the S model, which is a fair question. The S is the obvious choice though, as the Multistrada truly is many bikes in one, with the S offering the ultimate in suspension adjustability at the click of a few buttons. It’s the future of motorcycling and Ducati’s leading the charge.

    Equipped with a 1.6-kWh extractable Lithium-Ion battery, the GenZe 2.0 is a zero-emission urban micro-vehicle. Provided with a range of 45 to 50 km and dynamic braking, it goes from 0 to 45 km/h in less than eight seconds thanks to its immediate torque of 130 Nm.
  • Ducati Scrambler Urban Enduro.

    Ducati India have launched yet another variant of their highly popular (abroad) bike, the Scrambler, called the Scrambler Urban Enduro. This new variant is priced at Rs 7.90 lakh (ex-showroom) and is now on sale. The Urban Enduro comes with a ribbed seat, an enduro-style handlebar, a cool green paint job, fork protectors, a motocrossstyle front fender, headlamp grille and 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wire wheels. These changes have resulted into a bike that looks even more retro than the standard Scrambler.

  • 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe
    The Chevrolet Tahoe along with its larger ancestor, this Chevrolet Suburban, and the other Chevrolet itself account for nearly 50 percent of the sale of a full-size-SUV; this number is generated because of the GMC Yukon models, and as a result the market dominance has smack down. Chevrolet brings out a new Tahoe in Lake Tahoe which had bought a rain in the drought ridden area. The newness of this carries over from the new-for-2014 Silverado pickup, which is already on sale. Although the pickup is different from that of the SUV, though much of the same engineering enhancements apply to the Tahoe. The frame of this is fully boxed, and 75 percent of it is rendered in high-strength steel. In the front of this Tahoe there is, hydro formed rails and new front-axle mounts which helps to increase structural rigidity, this strength increases, from 16 Hz to 21 Hz, according to, what Chevrolet claim. The body structure has also been stiffened with the help of high-strength steel. Though on certain suspension impacts, you can still feel small quivers coming through the structure, but you can be assured about the fact, that it can be dissipate faster than before. ...see full review

  • 2015 Kia K900 V-8
    The large-sized rear drive wheel Kia K900 is a good option, but probably not as good as the hardcore automotive enthusiasts would expect. It may prove to be Kia's next step to reach the top of the prestige ladder. Kia has not still come in the league of an aspirational brand, but at the same time, it has no longer remained a brand that anyone must settle for. Kia is a trustworthy brand today and buyers have reasons to rely on it as the firm has manage to already sell cars for 20 years in America. Now, Kia is that car company on which buyers can rely to present before them and sell a big luxury sedan. ...see full review
