friends ..now we are getting lots of advertisements about the bajaj 2009 bike edition...bajaj is planning to launch 250 cc ,300 cc and 350 cc..bike segment... these bike looks supurb it is not officially lauched and these are the photographs which are till now avaiable.....most important features of these bike is that it it uses a mono shock techonology...
Bajaj, India’s largest and world fourth largest two wheeler manufacturer revolutionary in India. Frankly speaking I am no fan of Bajaj Products I always believe in companies like honda,TVS, Yamaha and etc...when it comes to biking.
So now a 300 cc bike for Indian roads? Are we power drivers? Already Price of fuel is sky rocketing while traffic in parallel increases. Soon I went through a research over internet about Bajaj launching the new 300cc bike to confirm the news.....
and i found that bajaj is introducting it very soon...to get over the Yamaha as its doing good in the market...hope this works......i love my own old bike,,,cheers....
and some of the concept bikes too by bajaj...
The VTR uses a 90-degree, four-valve, liquid-cooled V-Twin that has identical bore and stroke numbers to the motor you may remember in the 1989-1990 VTR 250 Interceptor sold here in the USA. Is it the same motor? I'd guess it is (or at least a derivative), and there's nothing worng with that: it's good for a claimed 29 hp at 10,500 rpm, about the same as Kawasaki's Ninja 250R. That motor rides around in style, bolted into a tube-steel trellis frame with a 55.3 inch wheelbase. Wheels are 17-inchers front and back, with bias-ply rubber, but a 41mm fork (Mr. Ninja uses 37mm tubes) should keep things stable. A floating 296mm brake disc and two-piston caliper in front should be enough to slow the 359 pounds of claimed wet weight. A 30.5-inch saddle height (identical to the Ninja) should make the bike attractive to the under-legged.
It's topped off with a tank, seat and instruments that look very much like a Ducati Monster's. In fact, this might be a bike frequently mistaken for a small Monster, but that should add to the appeal. Available accessories include an alarm and nav system. There's no European pricetag on it yet, but the Ninja 250R sells for the U.S. equivalent of about $5,900 (including tax and registration), so expect it to be priced about the same.
What do you think? Is there a market in the land of big spaces (and big people) for a small naked sportbike? Let us know. The American Honda folks read MD, too…
The Honda CB1000R reflects power, masculinity with a distinctive style and appeal. From the designing board to manufacturing, Honda team of engineers conceptualized CB1000R as a naked beauty to convey powerful impression of performance even when it rests on the stand. Looks monstrous and aggressive though, but one can really enjoy the ride on a CB1000R machine as its fun-filled accentuated with sheer magic of thrill and excitement.
The Honda CB1000R further grabs attention of every onlooker with the unmistakable metal as muscle to add to its look and its unstoppable power-packed performance can woo bike enthusiasts. The rear seat rises and the rear tyre is huge with seat saddle pitting a little. These looks of the bike are further enhanced with slim and short tail cowl and a forward-tilted fuel tank. The compact bikini cowl of the Honda CB1000R makes it look brilliant with its close to triangle-shaped multi-reflector headlight (I never had so much love for the wolf-eyed headlight, but this one hit me with a monster head like looks) and distinctive LED position lamp. Honda CB1000R looks big but it doesn’t look unmanageable unlike some super bikes. I find that CB1000R has more of steel than some other super bikes in the same engine segment and it does blend well with chrome. The four-spoked wheels add to the beauty
Talk About Performance: With kerb weight of 217kg, the Honda CB1000R runs on a 998cc, 4-stroke 16-valve DOHC engine. It means with each and every twist of the throttle, the super bike powers exhilarating acceleration. The mass-forward orientation of the super bike positions the rider slightly forward and it does help the rider to have a control on the bike in the windy roads and twisted turns that any sports bike rider will love.
In the segment of liter-class performers, this super street machine CB1000R delivers breathtaking power and awesome torque. It’s the torque that pulls the motorcycle in the race or to climb an uphill with tremendous ease. With a 6-speed gearbox transmission, the engine delivers maximum power output of 92kW @ 10000rpm and torque is about 1000 Nm @8000 rpm. The technical specifications of the Honda CB1000R include fully-adjustable radial front brakes, forks, single-backbone frame and all digital dashboards.
The LCD meter panel features multi-segment LCD tachometer. Other features of the Honda CB1000R include dual piston caliper, mono shock rear suspension coupled with adjustable HMAS damper in addition to 310mm floating front-disc brakes.
You Gotta Be Kidding… Super Bike On Indian Roads?
Honda CB1000R will set the heart of most bike lovers on fire as it pulsates with speed and vibrates with power be it metal road or asphalted road. It’s the acceleration that is sets it apart and with the new version of its braking system, the super bike can well be kept under control without the slightest displacement. Cartridge-type fork suspension system doesn’t fail and delivers smooth stop. The Z rate sports bike standard tyres withstand high speeds and the wider rear tyre provides the bike stability and awesome pull on the corners and turns.
Honda CB1000R is equipped with ABS or Antilock brake system which functions on bumpy and uneven road surfaces. The system reacts when there is even small change in the speed of 2 wheels and applies brake pressure for smooth and steady deceleration/stopping of the bike. So it should suit Indian roads as well.
Besides, tubeless tyres add on to the lighter weight while still gripping the road surface. With competition from Yamaha and Suzuki, Honda is poised for greater challenges in the super bike segment even in India
Final Verdict: Although Honda CB1000R super bike comes with a hefty price tag, yet the market for super bikes in India has open up well and people are now not hesitant to spend on the 1000cc metal machines and even in times of recession Honda boasts of selling its units. The Fireblade engine is redesigned for midrange performance and therefore, Honda CB1000R is expected to pump in greater demand, more for its torque than for its power.

The Yamaha YZF-R1 motor-bike, introduced in 1998, was the first significant motor-bike in the true litre class (1,000 cc) "handling arms race" between the Japanese Big Four motorcycle manufacturers (Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki & Yamaha). When introduced, Yamaha YZF-R1 motor-bike took the class closer to a true racing motor-bike, and increased the handling capabilities.

Is the Pulsar enough to maintain Bajaj’s status as a great bike manufacturer? I guess not. Pulsar 150, 180, 200, 220… hmm and not a Pulsar 250 again! The next super bike from Bajaj will be the Ninja 250. Except the Bullet, there is no other bike in India and Nepal which touches the world standard 250cc mark. Will Ninja be the first one? Lets wait and see. This is the original Kawasaki Ninja…
Kawasaki, the Japanese bike manufacturer and Bajaj have had a relationship for the past 25 years. And it is likely that the relationship will continue. Kawasaki will handle the technical part of the Ninja 250 and marketing and distribution will

The most active motorcycle maker this year is Yamaha motors that launched the YZF R15, the FZ 16 and the 2 variants of the Gladiator! Yamaha plans more with 2 new bikes and a set of new scooters coming this year. Now rumours are spilling that one of the 2 new bikes Yamaha would be launching is the YZF R125.
The R125 is the lower option to the YZF R15. The Yamaha YZF R125 is equipped with a liquid cooled 125cc 4-stroke SOHC engine with Fuel Injection. This 125cc engine would produce an impressive 15bhp and torque of 12Nm. Seriously very good for a 125cc engine. A 6-speed manual transmission will also be in the list.
Compared to the R15, the R125’s styling is much more aggressive and sportier than the R15! The wheels are not skinny like the R15’s and has an amazing rear rather than the “not so appealing” R15’s rear design. The only defect i see in this is the sporty, but very small rear seat.
The news of the YZF R125 to launch in India is not completely confirmed! But it would be good to see a bike that once sold the Alba and Gladiator is going on advancing so fast with better bikes and impressive dealer showrooms.
Yamaha and Suzuki have had more exposure than any other bike company in India because of the launch of FZ16 and R15 from Yamaha and GS150R from Suzuki. But Hero Honda and Honda are busy stickering up their bikes. New CBZ Xtreme, New Passion Pro are both just sticker upgrades and has no change in the engine or performance, which seems to be quite lame. And many Indian bikers got disappointed with the launch of Honda Unicorn Grand Prix edition, another sticker work, which is not so good looking and gives an idea that Honda is just trying to catch up in the two-wheeler market.
Will Honda susprise us in 2009? I am also a fan of Honda cars and I feel that Honda is not intimidated by the bike launches from Yamaha and Suzuki. The people at Hondas may have something bigger in store for us and are waiting for the right time, I guess. Now, Introduce yourself to Honda CBR 150R!
The CBR series of bikes from Honda is more than just a famous brand name. Now with the launch of Yamaha R15, India is in need for competing sports bikes with latest technology. This may lead to Honda bringing the CBR 150R to India. This bike is far more technologically advanced than the R15 and is a real sports bike, not a sporty looking bike! Anyway this is not a news, but just a speculation. Stay tuned for more bike news.
