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 i20 supermini gets a crossover makeover with eccentric styling. While we're patiently waiting for Hyundai to dip its toes into the pickup truck and performance segments with the Santa Cruz and that mid-engined sports car , the Asian brand is rolling out yet another crossover. Contrary to reports, the new Bayon is not actually significantly smaller than the Kona as the two have similar footprints. At 4.18 meters (164.5 inches) long, 1.77 meters (69.7 inches) wide, and 1.49 meters (58.6 inches) tall, the subcompact crossover is only a bit shorter than the facelifted Kona (4.21 meters / 165.9 inches) while being a little bit narrower and with a lower roofline. The wheelbase measures 2.58 meters (101.5 inches), a tad shorter than the Kona's, while the cargo capacity stands at 411 liters (14.5 cubic feet) or 1,205 liters (42.5 cubic feet) once you fold the rear seats. The load volume trumps the Kona with or without the bench down. Length Width Height … [Read more...] about 2021 Hyundai Bayon Revealed With Quirky Styling And Spacious Interior

In a virtual launch event hosted from the team's UK base in Enstone, Alpine presented the new A521 car ahead of its race debut at the end of this month. 2021 will see the Alpine name make its bow in F1 after Renault opted to rebrand its works team as part of a restructuring of the group's companies and marques. The team presented an interim livery in January, incorporate the red, white and blue French tricolore colours onto a black base design that was used for private test running with older cars. Renault finished fifth in last year's constructors' championship, but scored three podium finishes to mark its first rostrum appearances since returning to F1 as a works outfit in 2016. Esteban Ocon will continue with the team for a second year, having picked up his maiden F1 podium with Renault last year at the Sakhir Grand Prix with a second-place finish. Following Daniel Ricciardo's departure to McLaren, Ocon will be joined by two-time world champion Fernando Alonso … [Read more...] about Alpine presents new A521 Formula 1 car
Baguette and Tsukakoshi, who share the #17 Honda NSX-GT again in 2021, are 35 and 34 years old respectively and can boast a combined 19 seasons of GT500 experience. By contrast, three of Honda's other top class line-ups - Team Kunimitsu, ARTA and Nakajima Racing - have one driver with two seasons or less of top-class experience, and Team Mugen features rookie Toshiki Oyu alongside second-year driver Ukyo Sasahara. However, Baguette says that he and Tsukakoshi being the only 'all-veteran' driver pairing in the Honda stable has its benefits, likening their situation to that of vastly experienced Cerumo Toyota duo Hiroaki Ishiura and Yuji Tachikawa. "Of course I believe myself and Koudai can beat anybody else out there, and if you don’t think like that it’s better not to race," Baguette told Motorsport.com. "But Honda has done a strong job on the line-ups for the Bridgestone-tyre cars. All six drivers are really strong. "In 2019 one of our strengths was qualifying speed, … [Read more...] about Baguette: No qualms about being ‘Cerumo of Honda’
