HONDA DEVELOPING NEW HONDA CBR400R

While we were guessing that the new 500cc middleweight motorcycles from Honda is to compete with the new Kawasaki Ninja 400R, Honda surprised everyone by unveiling a new 400cc twin-cylinder engine motorcycle which is a downsized version of the 470cc parallel twin found on the CBR500R. This 400cc bike is developed exclusively for the Japanese market, where the Japanese government imposes lower taxes upon motorcycles in the 250-400cc segment. Thus making the motorcycles in this category costs lesser.

Honda CBR250R

To utilize the tax benefits leading motorcycle makers like Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki are developing the single cylinder engine and twin cylinder engine for the 250cc to 400cc category. Honda already has the CBR250R in that category and now they developed the new twin cylinder engine displacing 400cc. The 400cc four stroke twin cylinder engine is expected to power the Honda CBR400R and is expected to have a tough fight with Kawasaki Ninja 400R.
KTM Duke 390


Honda is trying to establish a strong foundation in the Japanese market at the moment. There is question whether they will sell the new CBR400R sportsbike in other countries or not. There are some reports that they are also planning to launch the bike in south east Asian markets. The motorcycle market in India has been improved in last few years and the bike can be a rival for upcoming KTM Duke 390 and Bajaj Pulsar 375.

MOTORCYCLE LOAN-COMMON MISTAKES

Motorcycle loans

If you plan to take a loan for motorcycle or a moped, you might face certain difficulties. People make some common errors when seeking a loan. Avoid making mistakes when taking a loan or else you might take a wrong decision. Before taking loans, people choose motorcycle. Technically you should consult a lender first, to get an idea on your budget. For example, you have selected the bike, and its price is $15,000 and you may get a loan of $11,000. This may disappoint you.

First compare the interest’s rates before you take a loan. Generally you might be pressurized to take loans without proper information about the schemes and this may lead to paying higher interest rates. Know all the details about the loan before you finalize it and do not go by the views of sales advisor.

Before you take the loan read all terms and conditions. Never take loans from private companies by seeing their promotional ads. For example, you borrowed money from credit card. You have to pay the interest rates for one year. If you take a loan from bank, you can clear your loan in short period with low interest rates.

Don’t borrow more than required. Have an idea on how much you can afford and the amount you can repay every month. Generally many do not consider this issue before making a final decision. In fact it happens with young people and new buyers.
The best way is to shop around before you go and decide the dealer. This way you will get an idea about bike price. If you are unaware of the options, then take advice from salesman.

Here are the common mistakes made by people. The person who lends you the money makes more money, when you are not paying your debts. Before signing the documents you should be aware of the conditions. To get a good loan, try to avoid these small mistakes. It is recommended to follow financing tips in motorcycle loans.
Banks frequently include administration fee in the charges. The reason behind this is it frequently increases every month. At the end of the month, the charges add up to large amount. If your bank is charging you extra fees, use online calculators to check the cost. This tip may save you money, so consider this point.

Know all the details before you finalise the loan and opt for financial institutions which provide you with lower interest rates. Some banks and financial institutions give loans for vehicles. Go for such ones as they have other privileges like lower interest, easy payment options and more. Research well before you finalize.

When you proceed with the loan, ask for payment protection insurance along with it. Payment protection helps you at times of unemployment, disability or when you are undertaking medication whence you have no monthly income. This insurance takes care of your monthly premiums and keeps you stress free and you can later make ppi claims through claiming company to get a refund.

YAMAHA GRABBED MUCH OF THE ATTENTION AT MUMBAI INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW

John Abraham at MMRDA

One of the most expected motorcycle shows, the Mumbai International Motor show was organized at the MMRDA Grounds, Bandra Kurla Complex recently. A wide range of four and two-wheelers were displayed for photographers as well as the automobile aficionados. At stall number 21, India Yamaha Motor represented some of the most exciting products such as the Yamaha Ray scooter, the Moto GP inspired R15 bike, the legendary VMAX along with a line-up of the latest products and accessories from Yamaha. Bollywood Rockstar John Abraham, whose association with the company has significantly enhanced its brand image, was also present at the stall.

John Abraham at MMRDA

Mr. Roy Kurian, National Business Head, India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd., said, “Yamaha has always been a committed player in the two-wheeler market and makes consistent efforts to adapt to market demand by launching exciting products year-on-year. I am extremely happy that Ray has been well received and looking at the current market scenario where the scooter segment is growing tremendously, I am positive that Ray will be able to hold its ground as the number one scooter in the country. Similarly, our bikes are equally special to us. A lot of thought and hard-work goes into our products and we prioritize our customers’ needs above everything else. Having said that, I extend my gratitude towards our loyal customers and channel partners who have played a key role in our consistent growth in India over the years.”

The motif at the Yamaha booth was in sync with the concept adopted by the company this year based on “Yamaha Global DNA” and the message being “Excitement”. Known for their stylish designs, innovation and high technology powered with exciting performance, all the products on display grabbed much of the attention from the onlookers.

The company’s premium scooter-the Ray, which was launched with great aplomb in Hyderabad in September last year, has stupendous response from critics and consumers alike. Ray’s brand ambassador, Miss Deepika Padukone has boosted the image of the company especially among young girls and women. Both John and Deepika have done extremely well.


MOTORCYCLE INSURANCE

Whether you have just bought your first bike or are adding to your collection, one of the first things you will be looking to do is insure your new purchase. Motorbikes are four times more likely to be stolen than cars so it is vital that you protect them. You are 9 times more likely to be injured in a bike accident than a car one so it is also important to protect yourself in case anything does happen. However there are many different types of insurance that offer different levels of cover and it is important that you get the right insurance for your biking needs. Finding the right kind of cover for your needs can be a tricky process but one that you have to go through, it is illegal to take to the road without some sort of cover. 

 
The minimal legal requirement for motorcycle insurance is third party cover, which doesn’t cover you for any damage done to your bike in an accident, so you would have to pay for any repairs yourself. I would highly recommend that you opt for fully comprehensive cover, as this will cover you regardless of whose fault the accident was. It is always worth remembering that even with fully comp packages there may still be areas where you are not covered such as breakdowns and the use of a courtesy bike. Make sure you read the small print and are aware of exactly what you are signing up for. 
 
Breakdown cover is considered a type of insurance, but you will have either take it out separately or add it on as an extra. As a biker it is also worth thinking about personal accident insurance as this will help you to claim compensation if you are seriously injured i.e. the loss of a limb. The more that is included in your cover, the more expensive it will be, however it may well be worth paying that bit more for the peace of mind that comes with fully comprehensive cover. The price of motorcycle insurance is also affected by how expensive and powerful your bike is, which obviously will make your premium more expensive. 


 
The best advice I can give is to shop around and make sure you get the best deal for the coverage you need. Going to a comparison site like MCN Insurance will give you a great idea of the options that are available to you. Simply put in all your information and let them find the best quotes for your needs. Getting comparisons will stop you from paying over the odds for your insurance.

BAJAJ BLADE 125 MAKING ITS WAY TO THE MARKET

India's scooter market is on its all time high, but strangely country's second largest two-wheeler maker and legendary scooter manufacturer Bajaj has not released a single scooter on this year. Bajaj started its journey with the scooters, and their Chetak and Priya were one of the most successful scooters till date. However, they have tried their hands in the scooters with the Kristle and Wave in last few years, but they failed. Now there are reports coming in that the Bajaj Auto might come with a new 125cc scooter, which will speak for them in the scooter segment. Hopefully, it will be the Bajaj Blade 125, which is going to be a unisex offering from the company.
BAJAJ BLADE 125

However only an image of the scooter is available on online automobile portals and it reveals a lot about the scooter. The image suggests that the Blade will be equipped with front telescopic shock absorbers, 12 inch wheels, digital instrument cluster, front fuel filling, front disc brake and electric start. The scooter will be powered by a 125cc-air cooled four stroke engine that features a 4 valve head, which will be mated to a CVT transmission and safely expect the engine to get the DTSi treatment in the production spec scooter.
BAJAJ BLADE 125

With the expected specifications the upcoming Blade 125 is going to be a great product, and as Bajaj is famous for keeping the prices low, we can expect an affordable price tag of the said scooter as well. Bajaj Blade 125 will compete with the other 125cc scooters in India including Piaggio Vespa LX125, Mahindra Duro, Suzuki Access and Swish.

HONDA PLANNING TO LAUNCH FOUR PRODUCTS EVERY YEAR

Japanese two-wheeler giant Honda said it will launch at least four products every year in India, after unveiling the 2013 models of their automatic scooters. The products will be developed at its first integrated R&D centre here, that will also serve as a global innovation hub. The company's wholly-owned subsidiary Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is also going to hire 2,000 people at its upcoming third manufacturing facility in Karnataka during 2013-14.


"Our plan is to launch at least four products every year from this R&D centre. As India becomes a global innovation hub for Honda, customers can look forward to new products faster," HMSI President and CEO Keita Muramatsu told reporters here. The new R&D centre along with HMSI technical centre currently has a strength of 200 engineers and developers, he added. Elaborating on its product plans, HMSI Vice President (Sales and Marketing) Yadvinder S Guleria said, "Currently, we are developing four new products from this R&D Centre. The first of these products will hit the roads during the 2013-14 financial year." When asked about the third manufacturing facility in Karnataka, Muramatsu said, "The third plant will start production during first quarter next fiscal with full capacity. Our total output would be 40 lakh per annum from all the plants"

He further said the company will hire 2,000 people at the third plant during the next fiscal, taking the total manpower of the company to 13,000. The company currently has two facilities at Manesar and Tapukara in Rajasthan with annual output of 16 lakh units and 12 lakh units respectively. The company is also expecting about 17 per cent jump in its total sales during this financial year at 27.5 lakh units. Out of that, it hopes to sell 26 lakh units in the domestic market.

SINGLE CYLINDERED 250CC BIKE BY HYOSUNG

South Korean company Hyosung is working hard to reach a good position in the two-wheelers market in India which is the second largest two-wheeler market in the world. At the launch of its two premium motorcycles, Hyosung announced the launch of a new 250cc-single cylinder bike in India. The Indo-Korean motorcycle joint venture DSK-Hyosung is developing this sportsbike at Hyosung’s South Korea based Research and Development facility.DSK-Hyosung also announced that the construction of their new assembly facility in India will commence by March 2013, and it is fully functional by September, 2013. The possibilities are high that the new 250cc bike will be assembled in this facility. Given the fact that the facility will be an assembly unit rather than a full fledged manufacturing plant, so the company will use the completely knocked down(CKD) kit route for the bike as they are doing for their other bikes. The 250cc-single cylinder motorcycle will be a global product and will be sold across the globe, as an entry level sportsbike. The bike will rival some big players including Honda CBR250R, Ninja 250 R, Yamaha R25 and others.


Hyosung is selling its affordable performance bike GT250R in the 250cc segment at very affordable price and considering new bike's single cylinder engine architecture, it is going to be an affordable offering for sure. Now-a-days the 250cc sportsbike segment is center of attraction across the globe, as the motorcycle manufacturer are taking this seriously after the success of Honda CBR250R and Kawasaki Ninja 250 R. Bikemakers are developing these affordable performance bikes both for developed countries like the USA and the UK as well as for the developing ones like Asian markets. In India, this space will see massive changes in 2013-14, at the moment there are three bikes available, Hyosung GT250R, KTM Duke 200 and Kawasaki Ninja 250 R. The coming months will witness the launch of KTM Duke 390, which is scheduled to debut in India during March 2013. Following this Bajaj Auto is also planning to launch its Bajaj Pulsar 375 in late 2013.There are reports that, British bikemaker Triumph is also working on a 250cc twin cylinder made for India motorcycle, which is expected to see a 2014 Auto Expo debut. Japanese motorcycle giant Yamaha is also developing a 250cc bike and will showcase it in 2014 Auto Expo. Suzuki is also planning to introduce Inazuma in India by the year end, so the affordable performance bike segment is going to blow in near future.

PIAGGIO'S VESPA REDUCED TO RS 59,960

Italian bike maker Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited's iconic scooter Vespa was now reduced to Rs 59,960. The price reduce was to increase Vespa's mass appeal and to take on market leader Honda Two-wheelers. Piaggio has taken this step due to India's scooter market growth of 20.06% in a relatively flat automotive market. India's scooter stood at 1.94 million vehicles from April to November, according to industry lobby Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers. Honda Scooters is leading the India’s scooter segment with more than 50% of the market share. Piaggio said it has sold over 25,000 units of its classic scooter in India.

"In keeping with the philosophy of maximising customer value, Piaggio would be sharing the consequent benefits with potential consumers beginning January 2013. This would lower the acquisition cost of the Vespa with the ex- showroom purchase price point now starting at Rs. 59,990 and taking the iconic brand to a wider set of aspiring consumers," Piaggio said in a statement.

"As we move into 2013, we are looking to increase this base and consolidate our national presence. From a business point of view, we've been able to build a strong network of dealers and partners much faster than we thought, thereby enhancing the reach and penetration," said Ravi Chopra, Chairman and Managing Director, PVPL.

Piaggio's Vespa classic LX 125 competes with the likes of Honda Activa and Duo, Hero Motorcorp Maestro, TVS Wego, Yamaha Ray, Suzuki Access 125, Mahindra Duro Dz 125 and Rodeo 125 and Suzuki Swish 125. Though Piaggio Vespa is reduced in cost it is still the highest priced scooter in India.

INDIA'S MOST ADVANCED 100CC BIKE LAUNCHED

Discover 100 T


Bajaj Auto launched India's first 100cc premium motorcycle Discover 100 T at Rs 50,500. This Bajaj bike is the most expensive 100cc bike in the country. The bike comes equipped with Bajaj Auto's patented 4-valve DTS-i technology, the Discover 100 T delivers a good power output of 10bhp, which is 30 percent more than the other 100cc motorcycles. Bajaj Auto claims that this bike delivers a fuel efficiency of 87 kilometer per litre, which is quite impressive with these power output figures.

K Srinivas, president (Motorcycle buisiness), Bajaj Auto said, "The steady growth of the more expensive 100 cc bikes at the cost of the cheaper models is a clear evidence of this. The Discover 100T delivers power of 125 cc motorcycle and mileage of a 100 cc."

The company says, the mass market segment wherein 5.5 lakh units are sold every month is getting further dissected into sub-segments namely A1, wherein bikes like Platina and Hero HF are sold between Rs 36,000 to Rs 40,000, A2 segment which includes bikes like Splendor, Passion and its own Discover 100 Rs 41,000 to Rs 45,000 and the A3 segment has motorcycles like Honda Dream Yuga and Hero MotoCorp's Passion Pro, which are priced between Rs 46,000 to Rs 51,000 at present.
Thus Bajaj Discover 100 T is positioned in the A3 segment, where Bajaj Auto didn't have any products available till now. Bajaj Auto is hoping to sell around 40,000 to 45,000 units per month of this new Discover 100T. The company says with the existing Discover 100, it has only 20 per cent market share in the mass market category, with the launch of Discover 100T, it is hoping to increase its market share in the segment to 30 per cent within the next couple of years.

Bajaj Auto has developed this model with a minimal expenditure of Rs 5 crore to Rs 6 crore, but it is based on an all new Discover platform, which already has spawned out Bajaj Discover 125 ST. Bajaj Auto invested Rs 25 crore to Rs 30 crore on this new Discover platform. The company is planning to introduce one more motorcycle on the similar platform in 2013. The Discover 100 Tourer will take on the likes of Hero MotoCorp Passion Pro and Honda Dream Yuga, which will help Bajaj Auto increase its presence in the market, where it currently enjoys 20 per cent market share.
