Home Bike reviews oi-Rahul Nagaraj By Rahul Nagaraj Updated: Tuesday, March 2, 2021, 21:49 [IST] Rating: 4.0 Ever since Royal Enfield introduced the Himalayan back in 2016, the motorcycle has been receiving a number of timely updates and revisions. A significant update came in 2020 when the Royal Enfield received a revised engine to meet the latest BS6-emission norms, which came into effect from April last year. Keeping the trend going, the Chennai-based brand introduced yet another update to the Himalayan at the start of the year. The new (2021) Royal Enfield Himalayan now comes with a few new cosmetic changes, along with a number of added features as well. The 2021 update also brings with it a price hike of Rs 10,000, translating to a revised price tag of Rs 2.01 lakh, ex-showroom (Chennai).

The tweak to the pre-race routine saw race director Tim Schenken deliver a 'start your engines' directive on the open teams radio channel before the commencement of the warm-up lap. That message was broadcast live on TV before a near-simultaneous fire-up of the 24 cars sitting on the grid. According to Supercars TV boss Nathan Prendergast, the idea came from discussions with returning free-to-air broadcaster the Seven Network about better capturing "unique" elements of the sport. But it won't become a regular feature of race weekend, instead something that will be used sparingly as part of the broadcast package. "It was born from a discussion with Seven from them looking at moments in our sport that are unique," Prendergast told Motorsport.com. "We're just trying to take an internal look at the sport and see if there are cool moments that we just dismiss because we're all very familiar to it. Start your engines is very old school, but there's something about that … [Read more...] about Supercars trials new ‘start your engines’ procedure
Approaching his IndyCar debut at 45 years old, Jimmie Johnson is an old rookie, but he’s not just any old rookie. In a NASCAR Cup career that spanned 20 years and 686 races, he won seven championships 83 race wins. Now he’s about to embark on an IndyCar career of currently indeterminate length, with Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda. The active Scott Dixon and retired Dario Franchitti, with 10 IndyCar championships between them, will respond favorably to tutoring this 21 st century legend because they know that Johnson hasn’t just turned to open-wheel racing as a passing whim, something to occupy himself now his NASCAR days are over. He was always into open-wheel racing. His original hero was Rick Mears, and racing Indy cars was his ambition when he was a pre-teen growing up in Southern California, attending the Grand Prix of Long Beach and watching all the Indy car races on TV with his grandfather. Attending the 2004 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix with fellow NASCAR legend Jeff … [Read more...] about Jimmie Johnson: The NASCAR legend’s IndyCar challenge
It even has an elevator. While a motorhome with a popup roof isn't too weird, the SAIC Maxus Life Home V90 Villa Edition is the first one we're familiar with that has a whole second story, complete with a balcony, that extends out of the top. If that's not special enough, there's even an elevator for accessing this area. From the outside, this Maxus looks like a fairly normal, van-based motorhome. One notable feature is at the back where massive LEDs outline the rear area.

Just when you thought the AMG GT R couldn’t get any meaner... The Mercedes-AMG GT can be had in a few different flavors. The standard offering is the GT Coupe, which pumps out a respectable 469 horsepower (349 kilowatts). Somewhere in the middle of the lineup is the GT C , which is a bit more performance-oriented and produces 550 hp (410 kW). At the top of the range is the track-ready GT R, which churns out a hefty 577 hp (430 kW). There’s even a new four-door GT . But even with all those options, one German tuning shop thinks the AMG GT could use more power. Renntech now offers an upgrade package for the AMG GT R that delivers anywhere from 612 to 825 hp (456 to 615 kW), depending on the trim. The latter of the two options is dubbed the AMG GT R825, and along with more horsepower, adds a whopping 626 pound-feet (850 Newton-meters) of torque to the equation. All that extra power comes courtesy of larger turbo, paired with a software upgrade, blow-off valves, and … [Read more...] about Hulk Unleashed: Mercedes-AMG GT R Dialed To 825 HP
