400cc Bajaj Engine Under Development, New 400cc Bike Launch In 2018

A recent report in the automotive industry claims that Bajaj Auto is currently working on a new400cc Bajaj Engine (DOHC) that will use triple spark technology, in house developed ECU and different gearing. The new motorcycle is expected to bring almost 40 HP of maximum power.

Bajaj Auto has announced the launch of two new products for January 2018, one of which is expected to be the new Avenger. As they also cleared the air of a bigger Pulsar coming next month, the launch is expected to bring big numbers to the company lineup.

That makes this development and January launch two different affairs. Bajaj Auto is losing a big share from the commuter centric market and they are preparing to gain almost 3-4% from the Indian market.

That is actually not possible with a 400cc motorcycle. Pulsar RS400, the worthy performance upgrade to RS200, has the highest chances of getting this new power-train as Avenger 400 would not be tuned to a higher spec version than Bajaj Dominar 400. The trend has…

Jaipur Man Riding Rs 22 Lakh Kawasaki Superbike Dies After Losing Control In High Speed Crash

A helmet could be the difference maker between life and death in case of two wheeler accidents, at least that is what happens in normal circumstances.

But in a tragic incident in Jaipur, a helmet was the villain which resulted in the death of a 34-year-old man in Jaipur on Thursday.

That too, it was no ordinary protection, it was a AGV - K3 helmet worth Rs 50,000, known for its quality and durability.

Rohit Singh Shekhawat, a superbike enthusiast from Jaipur died after his Rs 22 lakh Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R slipped off the road and crashed on Thursday.
Shekhawat, who worked as a sales manager with an automotive company died of brain hemorrhage after his helmet got stuck on his head.

He met with the accident while returning home after he tried to save a man crossing the road.
"It seems that Shekhawat was driving in high speed and applied sudden brakes when he found a man crossing the road ahead of him. The bike skidded and biker slammed into a divider," said investigation offi…

Google's Most trending four-wheelers and two-wheelers in 2017

Google has released the list of the most trending four-wheelers and two-wheelers in 2017 and the list has some surprising names.

As the year draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on the months that flew by. 2017 saw a whole lot of action from the automotive space, with launches ranging from a humble utilitarian scooter like the Honda Cliq, to a racetrack-ready supercar like the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. Of course, the interwebs were abuzz with scoops, discussions and a whole lotta gyaan.

Google has released their list of the top trending cars and bikes of the year. And the results are, let’s say, interesting. There are some surprises, and we raised quite a few eyebrows ourselves. Let’s kick things off with the four-wheeled section.

Topping the trend charts is Maruti’s oh-so-lovable Swift. Interestingly, the hatchback is at the end of its life cycle. The anticipation for the new Swift that debuts next year has definitely fuelled the hatchback’s search volumes. Runners up inclu…

Samsung Galaxy X Is In The Making

Samsung has accidentally confirmed its intentions to launch the foldable smartphone; Galaxy X. Samsung has showcased foldable mobile devices for years at tech trade shows, but it never was ready to launch one, but it seems that Galaxy X might break the bar.

Galaxy X Is In The Making

A support page on Samsung’s own site confirms the existence of the Galaxy X. The alleged support page is for an ‘SM-G888N0’ phone, although the page doesn’t shed light on what the model name stands for. This model number has been spotted in the past too.

Some reports suggest that the ‘NO’ in the model number suggest that the phone might launch in South Korea before making its way to other markets. According to Mobiel Kopen, the SM-G888N0 has already been passed through several certifications, which includes Bluetooth SIG, South Korea’s National Radio Research Agency, and Wi-Fi Alliance.

Samsung Galaxy X was earlier code-named “Project Valley”. According to some reports, Samsung will manufacture the X in s…

Honda or Yamaha, which is better in Quality.

The cost of an bike is primarily based on the following factors. This applies for almost all products that are manufactured.

Raw material cost - Cost if the different materials used for your productsConversion cost - Prcoessing cost of raw materials to an finished partOverhead cost - Salaries of employees,Etc.Development cost - R&D investments used for developing a product.

Considering this above factors Honda and Yamaha manufacturers bikes in India with local facilities around different states. TVSM and Bajaj is also makes and sells across India.

But the primary difference comes in terms of development of product say in R&D. TVSM and Bajaj has indigenous development centres in India whereas Yamaha and Honda has to import designs and develop here in India. Though they have manufacturing and development in India almost all their products are mainly developed in Japan for Indian market and the design in implemented here in India. One could disagree that they have their own R&am…

The Justice League Trivia: 16 facts you didn't know | Useless Daily

The Justice League has been DC’s flagship superhero team for decades. After fighting against injustice for more than 50 years, it’s no surprise the League’s history has accumulated some odd details.

Some of those moments are charming, like the Atom’s tiny flying chair at JLA meetings. Some of them stem from a writer trying to shake things up (that badass Batman secretly plots to destroy his team!) or coming up with a quirky story (a teenage boy figures how to kill the JLA). Sometimes it’s the passage of time that makes what once seemed unremarkable now look quaint, like the Silver Age JLA’s old-fashioned methods of finding crimes to stop. Of course, the passage of time also makes things like the long years without any minority members look embarrassing by today’s standards.

The Justice League movie coming out this summer is just the latest development in a long, heroic, and sometimes outright crazy history. Read on for 16 fun facts from the JLA’s colorful past.


Honda Might Launch New CBR150R or CBR300R in India Soon Complete Details:

A recent report from AutoCar India claims that Honda is almost ready to launch an all-new product in the category of CBR150R and CBR250R in India. They are expected to replace both the bikes with better options but one of them will make its way into India this financial year.

BS3 to BS4 conversion for both the CBR motorcycles was avoided by Honda and thus, they went off production from April 1, 2017. As Honda has updated the CBR250R with 300R in most markets, India is also expected to get the same model for better competition with KTM and other mid capacity bikes available in India.

iPhone 8 Plus reportedly splits open while charging

It wouldn’t be an iPhone launch without some sort of “gate” controversy. In the past there’s been antenna-gate, bend-gate and now charge-gate? That appears to be the case for an iPhone user in Taiwan who claims her iPhone split open while charging.

The iPhone in question is new Gold iPhone 8 Plus (64GB). According to the user, Ms. Wu, she was charging her phone with the Lightning cable and wall plug that was included in the box. She had just purchased the iPhone 8 Plus five days earlier.

In her account of the incident, within three minutes of charging the phone, she noticed the front panel bulge before completely disconnecting from the frame. Her phone was recovered by her carrier and was out sent to Apple for analysis.

Ms. Wu wasn’t the only person affected by this issue. A Japanese user took to Twitter to show how her Silver iPhone 8 Plus had arrived in the box. It looks similar to Ms. Wu’s iPhone, with the front glass panel disconnecting from the aluminum fame.
