KTM hikes prices in India
We recently told you about KTM increasing the price of the 125 Duke in India, but going by the company’s latest price list, it appears that the entire range has received a price hike. This includes the likes of the 250 Duke, RC 390 and the 390 Duke. The price hike ranges from as little as Rs 2,000 on some models to up to Rs 9,000 on the RC 390. The company’s most expensive offering, the 390 Duke, has gone up in price by around Rs 4,000. Interestingly, this makes the 2019 390 Duke Rs 10,000 more expensive than the 2018 model and more than Rs 20,000 pricier than the 2017 model. A number of reasons could be responsible for the price hike, the most common of which would be the increasing costs of raw materials and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. These also happen to be the reasons for which we saw Kawasaki hike prices for its entire line just last month. Here is the entire list: Model Price (old) Price (new) 125 Duke ABS Rs 1.18 lakh Rs 1.25 lakh 200 Duke ABS Rs 1.60 lakh Rs 1.62 lakh RC 200 ABS Rs 1.88 lakh Rs 1.90 lakh 250 Duke ABS Rs 1.93 lakh Rs 1.97 lakh RC 390 ABS Rs 2.35 lakh Rs 2.44 lakh 390 Duke ABS Rs 2.44 lakh Rs 2.48 lakh All prices, ex-showroom, Delhi.

Geometry A sedan by Geely unveiled in Shanghai
China's biggest car manufacturer, Geely, has launched its new electric-only brand, Geometry, with a model that will rival the Tesla Model 3. The new car, called the Geometry A, is on display at the Shanghai motor show. The Geometry A sedan is claimed to be capable of 410km in Standard Range form and 500km in Long Range form (both figures measured under the old NEDC cycle). The former variant uses a 51.9kWh lithium-ion battery pack while the latter uses a 61.9kWh unit, both provided by Chinese firm CATL. In comparison, the Tesla Model 3 Long Range has a 75kWh battery with a 544km range in the more realistic WLTP test. The Model 3 Standard Range, with a 50kWh battery, is predicted to manage around 354km WLTP. Geely says the A can be fast-charged from 30-80 percent in just half an hour. However, the carmaker hasn't specified how many kW is required from the power supply to achieve that charging speed. Drive in the Geometry A is supplied by a permanent magnet synchronous motor with a maximum output of 163hp and 250Nm of torque, resulting in a 0-100kph sprint time of 8.8sec. The A is claimed to be the safest car in its segment. It offers a host of active safety technology, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, automatic high beam control, front and rear moving object detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assistance, adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree parking camera. The car follows on from the Geely GE11 concept, which was unveiled in February under the 'Geely New Energy' brand. The five-seater Geometry A's design was penned at Geely's studio in Shanghai and is described by the firm as "minimalist and avant-garde" with a focus on aerodynamic efficiency. Indeed, its drag coefficient is 0.24Cd – just 0.1Cd behind that of the Model 3. Both the Standard Range and Long Range versions of the A will be offered in three trim levels – 2, 3 and n. Explaining the new brand's unusual name, Geely has stated, "It gets its name from mathematical geometry, which emerged thousands of years ago to describe the world as humans saw it. The Geometry brand is Geely's vision of the future in which technology is used to create a sustainable environment and safe mobility, leading to a harmonious relationship between humanity and nature." Geometry has already taken more than 27,000 orders for the A, of which around 67 percent have come from outside China, with buyers in Singapore, France and Norway. Geely plans to launch 10 new electric models, including SUVs, sedans and MPVs, under the Geometry brand by 2025. These will use "exclusively developed platforms" and be sold through Geometry-specific distribution channels. In addition to Geometry, the Geely group comprises Geely, LEVC, Lotus, Lynk & Co, Polestar, Proton, Smart and Volvo. Hardware and technology developed by Geometry could, therefore, be shared across these multi-national brands. [...]

'Dirt and filth': Russia attacks film about Red Army in Afghanistan
Portrayal of Soviet withdrawal from country distorts historical facts, claims politicianA row has broken out in Russia over a film about the Soviet Union’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, after politicians and former servicemen criticised its unflattering depiction of Red Army soldiers as unpatriotic.Leaving Afghanistan, directed by Pavel Lungin, is based on the experiences of Nikolay Kovalyov, a veteran of the Afghan war who went on to lead Russia’s FSB spy agency. It tells the story of a group of Red Army soldiers whose departure from Afghanistan is delayed after they are ordered to free a Soviet general’s son taken captive by mujahideen fighters.
