Splendor is their bread n butter...
Images are directly from the Motoroids site. Probably Amit(Revmaster) will upload the better ones overnight. (Every journo at the Expo is complaining about network problems there)

PS: (Disclaimer) I'm at work in Mumbai and am not on Motoroids payroll (although this thread might give that impression :P). Just had a light day at work and hoping that my boss is not a visitor here :P

Hyundai's styling with the Verna was refreshing, but now it's getting too much of the same. While the headlamps do stand out as new gen Hyundai, you need to look harder to tell the model. :unsure:

Daytona at 7lac ^_^! What a Triumph ! :hail: :faint:    Er, that's still a bit more than I hoped for, but will have to juggle the EMI/monthly expenses to fit it in ..now when is Triumph opening a showroom/ASC here , and more imp , what will the spares be priced like ? Spare parts prices give me nightmares :eek:   , sometimes I wonder if I might as well settle for a :car:  :frusty:
Having said that , I think I need to :behindsofa:  since someone will want to :fencing:

Fun with emoticons , huh ? :peace:

Last night was watching the Auto Expo special on Zee Business and the Anchors were clueless as to what to say, they were reading from the paper they were holding and in the middle the guy decided that he won't speak so all he did was keep passing on a sheepish smile the whole time. One of the presenters who was previewing the Tata Safari Storm mentioned the features and according to her the best new feature of the Storm was the New Utility Box in the center of the Dash board and the new slick n smooth Gear Changer (How did she know it was smooth when she didn't even touched it, let alone took a test drive)

Well buddy zee business is one of those stupid channels which has come up just for the same of coming up..
The people who work there are worse then some magazines (wont mention them here) while comparing two vehicles they don't even know which two vehicles are direct rivals, last time i saw them sometime back comparing a honda shine with a gladiator (ya stunner does not  exist in this world) they were saying that shine does not have a refined engine and ride quality isn't that great as well.. From then on i decided that its better not to put on this channel again at all..

Should have gone without the alloy wheels so as to reduce the price further.. That means even more competitive pricing for this bike..

Have they announced the pricing yet? Don't remember seeing it.

Bythe way, this won't be Honda's only offering in the 100cc class.
I think this targets semi-urban/urban markets while they will have another rugged model specially for the rural markets (like the CD Dawn?).

For all you photo junkies. Here are the Triumph model range for India (from the Motoroids Article):

The Triumph Bonneville/Bonneville SE @ Rs. 5.5L
Posted Image
A fuel injected 865cc motor with a peak power output of 68PS and torque of 68NM.

The Triumph Street Triple @Rs. 5.75L
Posted Image
Comes with a 675cc three-cylinder engine with a peak power of 106PS and torque of 68Nm.
Chassis is a derivative from the Daytona 675

Triumph Daytona 675 @ Rs. 7L
Posted Image
The 3 cylinder 675cc motor churns out 125 PS  of power and 72 NM of torque.
"The bike can rev all the way to the moon and the peak power is developed at 12600 RPM."

Triumph Speed Triple @ Rs. 8L
Posted Image
The 1050cc three-cylinder engine pumps out 135 PS of power 111 Nm  of torque.
Triumph also offers an ABS version.

The Triumph Tiger XC @ Rs. 11.4L
Posted Image
The three-cylinder engine translates into 79Nm of torque and 95PS of power.
Seems ideal for India, doesn't it ;)

Triumph Storm @ Rs. 17L
Posted Image
1700cc engine with 98PS of power and 156Nm of torque

And finally, the Triumph Rocket III @ Rss. 22L
Posted Image
The 2,294cc three-cylinder engine delivers 221Nm of torque at just 2750rpm.
With that figure does it even matter how much the peak power is?

Honda shine looks a bit different.
