Mr. Rajiv Bajaj said that they will be launching the Pulsar 220 soon. Bajaj Auto has come up with new upgraded bike Pulsar with new colors scheme and graphics. Pulsar now feature dual tone paint, to make the Pulsar distinguishable from the populated Pulsar motorcycles on the road. The front fairing, handlebars and grab rails are now completely black, while the gearbox cover is in silver colour. The silver treatment from the gearbox has been extended to the foot pegs as well.
In July 2007, Bajaj began selling the Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-Fi and Pulsar 200 DTS-i, the former featuring fuel injection and oil cooled engines, a digital dash, and modern styling. This bike has some features which are totally new to the Indian market, like the fuel injection itself, rear disc brake and clip-on handlebars (the first two only available in the 220 model). Bajaj launched a carbureted version of Pulsar 220 on June 2009, tagging it as “the fastest bike in India”. Bajaj has been famous for developing new technology and upgrading the bike every year.
We all have seen what happened to Renault’s Logan people had issues with its dated looks, service and maintenance issues. French auto manufacturer have decided to launch Fluence in India to give what the Indian customer wants.
Renault has been struggling to attract the customer with the launch of Fluence, Renault has now started thinking about the one of the most fastest growing Indian market. It has started taking steps to improve its image firstly with Fluence and KOLEOS (4×4 SUV). Three more cars will be launched in 2012 including a small hatchback.
It has been loaded with pleanty of features like Alloy Wheels, Chrome Finish, Driver Lumbar Support, Storage Boxes Cup holders Tilt + Telescopic Steering, Engine Start/Stop, Smart Access, Cruise Control, Bluetooth connectivity to name a few. Safety has been given utmost importance in this car with SRS Airbags (Driver + Passenger), ABS with EBD, Electronic Stability Program and ASR coming as standard with the two versions on sale here in India.
In the small car segment Spark and Beat are doing a fair amount of success, like Ford which has been selling Figo like no other in the segment because of its Diesel option with any waiting period. Chevrolet decided to increase its sales by giving the edgy and sporty Beat a new heart.
Beat was first showcased as a concept model in 2009 it is very similar to its concept model. Chevrolet Beat was launched in 2010 Delhi Auto-Expo where it had 1.2litre petrol engine which churns out 80.5 bhp and 108nm torque. It just changed the look of the segment with its radical design, sporty image and refreshing looks.
The upcoming next-generation 2012 Honda CR-V was caught doing some hot-weather testing in Death Valley, USA. Honda seems to upgrade all the cars as we have already seen in 2012 Civic.
Honda CR-V was launched in India in 2003 since then it never looked back, the next year it was awarded with SUV of the year. Honda is pretty much satisfied with its sale. CR-V is sold as a fully imported unit from Japan. It was loosely derived from the Honda Civic to satisfy a public demand for a sport-utility vehicle from Honda.
Returning from injury at Mugello and finishing at 8th spot, the Spanish rider was also struggling with physical fitness.The Repsol Honda rider came back after missing three races, undergoing two surgeries taking his second victory of the year at Sachsenring GP in a race where he didn’t expect to last for the full 30 laps, instead he won the race with a 1.477 margin.
The Spaniard showed what is he capable of, if he would have not involved in the controversial crash with Marco Simoncelli, he definitely would be fighting for the championship.
Austrian sports bike maker KTM today said it will launch its first motorcycle, jointly developed with Bajaj Auto Ltd , in India at the Auto Expo to be held in the capital early next year. The company, in which Bajaj Auto holds nearly a 40 per cent stake, had already launched its first co-developed bike in Europe in March this year.
In 2007, Bajaj picked up a 14.9 per cent stake in KTM for around Rs 300 crore. A year later, it increased its stake in the European bike-maker to 25 per cent and has been increasing it gradually.
Both companies also signed an agreement for jointly developing 125-cc bikes, which will be built at Bajaj’s Chakan plant near Pune for exports to the European market under the KTM brand. They had earlier planned to launch their bikes in India in the latter half of this year.
