Locally assembled Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R sold out
Good value gets results. That statement holds especially true in a market like ours and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R is testament to this. Less than fifteen days after Kawasaki first launched the locally assembled 10R at a tempting starting price of Rs 12.8 lakh ex-showroom, the company has issued instructions to all dealerships to stop accepting bookings. We are given to understand that in this short span of time, the company has received around 100 bookings. This is highly impressive for a litre-class superbike and it surpasses the total number of current-gen Ninja ZX-10Rs that have been sold in the country so far. Deliveries of the locally assembled bikes are yet to begin and they will pan out over the next few months. At the moment, it isn’t clear how long the wait will be before the ZX-10R becomes available for bookings again, but it’s fair to expect a period of at least three months. The ZX-10R has been highly successful in the World Superbike Championship, winning multiple titles at the hands of Jonathan Rea. It’s also among the quickest motorcycles money can buy with a 998cc, in-line four cylinder motor that produces 200hp and 113.5Nm of torque. The Ninja ZX-10R is packed with electronic rider assists such as traction control(S-KTRC), multi-level power modes, launch control (KLCM), ABS control (KIBS), cornering management (KCMF) and engine braking function (KEBC) – many of which are aided by an inertial measuring unit (IMU). It is worth noting that both the locally assembled ZX-10R and 10RR will be sold as single-seat versions. This helps the company avoid homologation requirements in terms of engineering a saree guard for the bike. As a result, the bike will ship with a rear cowl as standard and it will not have pillion footpegs. For those who would like the option of a pillion seat, a conversion can be made by buying the appropriate parts, which will cost around Rs 38,000.  [...]

Yamaha Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition teased
At the 2018 Auto Expo, earlier this year, Yamaha showcased the Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition concept. The Japanese brand has now shared a teaser video on its official YouTube channel signalling that it will be launching a new scooter soon. From the teaser video, we can identify the scooter in question as the production version of the Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition concept. The styling of the scooter will be similar to the concept showcased at the Auto Expo, including the quirky winglets on the headlight apron. In the teaser we can also see that it will feature redesigned graphics and will be offered in dual-tone shades, along with a red section below the saddle. The concept bike also had an all-digital instrument which will feature in the production version. The upcoming scooter isn’t an all-new product – it is a Yamaha Ray ZR variant. Yamaha has no plans to launch new products in 2018, as it is focused on the ABS and CBS upgrades to its line-up. The Ray ZR 110 Street Rally Edition will be powered by the same 113cc, air-cooled motor seen on all Yamaha scooters sold in India. The single-cylinder engine develops 7.2hp and 8.1Nm of torque. The scooter employs a telescopic front fork and a mono-shock unit at the rear. The two-wheeler runs on 10-inch alloy wheels wrapped around with 90/100 tubeless tyre on both ends. The teaser video also gives us a glimpse of the front disc brake and a drum unit at the rear. The upcoming Yamaha scooter will carry a marginal premium over the Yamaha Ray ZR, which retails for Rs 55,898 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The manufacturer will also launch the Yamaha R15 V3.0 MotoGP edition in India, soon. [...]

'A better life': India moves a step closer to legalising gay sex
Government decision to leave ruling to supreme court judges boosts campaigners For journalist Sunil Mehra, sitting in the Indian supreme court on Wednesday was a “heart-wrenching” moment he will never forget. He fought back tears as the story of his love for his partner, classical dancer Navtej Johar, was recounted by their lawyer Menaka Guruswamy to the five judges who are deciding whether India should legalise gay sex.Guruswamy said the two men had loved each other for 24 years, that Mehra had passed a tough exam to join the civil service but did not dare join over fears that his homosexuality would become known. He added that every decision they took was under threat of persecution, that they were never able fully to be themselves and that they were living, in effect, as unconvicted felons.

Suzuki Burgman Street to be priced from Rs 68,000
A week before the launch of the Burgman Street, dealerships have started displaying the new scooter and accepting bookings. Some dealers have also stated the upcoming 125cc scooter is likely to be priced from Rs 68,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Deliveries are expected to begin by the end of July or early August. At present, there’s no official word on pricing, but according to a dealer in Delhi, the Burgman Street is likely to be priced from 68,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). We can expect Mumbai pricing to be slightly higher than that. The Suzuki Access 125 SE, on which it is based, retails for Rs 60,718 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the CBS variant. The Burgman Street will compete against the Honda Grazia, priced at Rs 63,994 (disc brake variant), and the TVS Ntorq 125, which costs Rs 59,687. There's also the sporty Aprilia SR 125 that costs Rs 66,957 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi) The scooter was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo earlier this year. The Burgman Street uses maxi-scooter styling that’s inspired from the larger Burgman range sold in global markets. It’s also the first made-in-India Suzuki scooter to feature an LED headlight and an all-digital instrument console. In terms of features, the flagship Suzuki scooter has been equipped with a multi-function key slot, large underseat storage, a 12V charging socket (likely to be an optional extra), cubbyhole below the handlebar and an LED tail-lamp. Powering the scooter is the Access 125-sourced 124.3cc motor producing 8.6hp at 6,500rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000rpm. Other mechanicals of the Burgman Street are also shared with its 125cc sibling. For braking, the upcoming scooter employs a disc brake unit at the front and a drum unit at the rear. Since the Burgman Street is an all-new product, CBS is standard.  Also see: Suzuki Burgman Street reaches dealerships prior to launch Suzuki Burgman Street India launch on July 19 2018 Suzuki Burgman Street: 5 things you need to know [...]

Dani Pedrosa announces MotoGP retirement
Honda MotoGP rider Dani Pedrosa has announced that he will be retiring from MotoGP at the end of the ongoing 2018 season, bringing an end to an 18-year career in grand prix motorcycling. He broke the news in a special press conference at the Sachsenring, ahead of this weekend’s German Grand Prix. Pedrosa has been racing for the Honda factory team since 2006, but was left without a ride for next year, when the team signed Jorge Lorenzo as his replacement for 2019. He’s helped Honda to win seven MotoGP manufacturers' championships and has contributed to six team titles for the Repsol-backed factory outfit. After winning the 125cc title in 2003 and back-to-back 250cc titles in the two following seasons, Pedrosa has been an ever-present frontrunner in MotoGP despite frequent injuries, some of which had threatened to end his career early. He has so far amassed 31 wins and 112 podium finishes in the premier class, but has missed out on a MotoGP title, finishing runner-up on three occasions - to Ducati's Casey Stoner in 2007, and to Lorenzo in 2010. “Next year I won’t compete in the Championship, I’ll finish my career in MotoGP this season. It’s a decision I’ve thought about for a long time and it’s a hard decision because this is the sport I love but despite having good opportunities to keep racing, I feel like I don’t live racing with the same intensity as before and I now have different priorities in my life,” said Pedrosa. “I achieved way more than I expected and I’m very, very proud of what I’ve done in the sport. I’ve fulfilled my dream of becoming a racer and that’s something that I didn’t expect when I was a kid watching TV, watching riders in the World Championship.” [...]
