New EV charging point set up by Magenta Power
Renewable energy solutions service provider, Magenta Power, has set up an EV charging station at Hotel Center Point in Lonavala, creating India’s first EV charging corridor through the ChargeIn network on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. In the next phase, the network will then be extended to Bengaluru and Mysuru (through the NH4), allowing electric vehicle users to travel across this stretch in their EV. ChargeIn will be a fully integrated network of charging points including AC and DC chargers and all the ChargeIn points will be connected via a network for central monitoring and control. It will be an open platform for all EV charging stations. Existing owners of charging stations will have the option to join the ChargeIn network and support this community. Initially, some of the charging stations will have a fully automated payment system so that users can charge the vehicles using an online OTP based payment system via the ChargeIn app. This payment system will be deployed to all the charging stations in a phased manner. Commenting on the announcement, Maxson Lewis, the CEO and managing director of Magenta Power, mentioned that ChargeIn, the app solution provider, plans to encompass charging stations for two-wheelers, three-wheelers, passenger vehicles and bus fleets. He believes that while this network of charging stations will open up the ‘electric highways’ in India, it will also provide a unique employment opportunity for charging station owners who can man and support the stations. He also mentioned that Magenta Power understands the challenges with setting up and operating EV charging stations in India given the local context and issues and is prepared with technological and ground level solutions. Magenta Power is certain that this initiative will encourage OEMs like Mahindra and Tata to deploy more EVs on Indian roads. The company had installed India’s first solar-based EV charging station in Navi Mumbai recently. [...]

Hero Duet 125 renamed Destini 125
Hero had showcased two new 125cc scooters, called the Maestro Edge 125 and the Duet 125, at the Auto Expo 2018. Now, however, leaked images of what looks to be a presentation slide reveals that the Duet 125 has been rebadged as the Destini 125. While the Destini 125 (Duet 125) is positioned as a family scooter offering, the Maestro Edge, on the other hand, targets younger buyers with its comparatively sportier styling. Both scooters use a 125cc motor that makes 8.7hp and 10.2Nm of torque. They also come equipped with i3S (idle-start-stop) tech that, until now, was seen only on Hero motorcycles. The Destini 125 will also feature an external fuel-filler cap, side-stand warning, service indicator and a pass switch. Furthermore, it comes with a boot lamp and mobile charging point. Styling-wise, the scooter gets body-coloured rear-view mirrors and a dual-tone seat. As for the Maestro Edge, we will believe Hero will keep that moniker as it is a strong brand for them. Expect more details about the two upcoming scooters to emerge in the weeks to come.   SOURCE [...]

MotoGP: SIC Yamaha rider line-up confirmed
SIC is set to take over from Tech3 as Yamaha’s sole MotoGP satellite operation in 2019. Now, Yamaha Factory Racing managing director, Lin Jarvis, has confirmed that Franco Morbidelli and Fabio Quartararo will be racing for the team in its first season in the premier class. Morbidelli currently races for the Marc VDS Honda squad. His ties to Yamaha, via mentor Valentino Rossi, meant he was always highly likely to join the SIC squad in 2019, although the finalisation of his deal has been delayed by complications arising from his existing Marc VDS contract. Meanwhile, Quartararo will step up to MotoGP after two seasons in Moto2. The 19-year-old, who won his first Moto2 race at Barcelona in June, beat out Nieto Ducati rider Alvaro Bautista and Moto2 racer Lorenzo Baldassarri to become Morbidelli's teammate. Speaking to MotoGP.com, Jarvis said: “They’re (SIC Yamaha) an Independent Team. Of course, any rider they select needs to be finally approved by us at being at the level and the capacity to ride the M1. So they’ve chosen to go for Franco Morbidelli, who is a rider who is very interesting to us because he’s a World Champion, he’s an Academy rider and he definitely has talent. I think he’ll do better on the M1 than he is doing this year on the Honda so in the case of Franco there was no doubt at all from the beginning.” “In the case of Quartararo, he will be a rookie, but he’s young – only 19 – and he’s definitely talented. He lost his way maybe for a year or two but he’s showing promise again this year. But I think he could be one of the very good riders for the future.” The confirmation of SIC Yamaha’s line-up leaves only a few seats on the 2019 MotoGP grid to be confirmed. Honda has yet to announce that Takaaki Nakagami will stay on at LCR for a second season, although this is deemed a formality, while Avintia Ducati's line-up is also not yet fixed. It is anticipated Xavier Simeon will lose his ride, with well-financed Nieto rider Karel Abraham emerging as the favourite to replace the Belgian alongside Tito Rabat. [...]

More British troops are being sent to Afghanistan – to appease Trump | Simon Jenkins
Why is no politician of any party brave enough to challenge the UK’s continued involvement in this distant and hopeless war?Four hundred and forty British troops are about to leave for Afghanistan to help fight the Taliban. Could someone explain why? It is now four years since British troops “left” that country, after 13 long years and £40bn of fighting, culminating in defeat in Helmand. In 2014, Nato formally ended its retaliation for Afghanistan harbouring Osama bin Laden. It said it would withdraw and leave a new Afghan government to its own devices.Yet not one British politician – Conservative or Labour – can bring themselves to challenge Britain’s continued involvement in this war; including this month’s doubling of troop numbers. All are afflicted with that old post-imperial tic, wanting to punch above their weight, set the world to rights, not seem weak in public? Afghanistan is not a defence policy, it is a rash, a virus, a disease of misused power. Related: The US and Afghanistan: can’t win the war, can’t stop it, can’t leave Continue reading... [...]
