Hyundai will launch Creta SUV : Price, Lunch date 2020
Share

The launch of the new Creta will going launch this month. The SUV will be powered by a BS6 emission compliant 1.5 litre diesel and petrol engines and also 1.4 litre turbo. Hyundai Motors’ vision for the future is not all about cutting-edge technology and flying vehicles. It is every bit as much for the perennial question of how to address concerns over last-mile connectivity and the Korean car maker may now have the appropriate solution – a 7-kilo electric scooter than can be unpacked in a jiffy and taken out for short distances of about 20 kilometers.

Featuring a 10.5 Ah lithium battery, Hyundai’s electric scooter boasts of a top speed of 20 kmph and can last for around 20 kilometers on a single charge. It comes complete with curved front LED headlights, two rear tail lamps and a digital display that shows battery status and speed.

The most recent iteration of Hyundai’s electric scooter gets a rear-wheel drive which, the company says, ensures better safety and stability. Suspension has been moved to the front wheel to help it tackle rough surfaces with better control. And if that’s not enough, the e-scooter will soon also get regenerative braking system that could increase its range by about 1.5 kilometers.

And after all of this, when time comes to return to more conventional means of transportation, the e-scooter can be folded and packed into the rear seats of a sedan or the boot of a compact car.

Dongjin Hyun, Head of Hyundai Motor Group’s robotics team said “While the e-scooter from Hyundai is not likely to hit commercial production scales any time soon, the company says it could be the perfect solution for crowded cities battling traffic woes. “Our personal electric scooter makes first- and last-mile commuting a joy, while helping to reduce congestion and emissions in city centers”.

Aprilia has entered the Tuono 125 motorcycle on its official Indian website. The Aprilia Tuono 125 has been motivated by its bigger sibling, the Tuono V4 1100 RR and appears with a multitude of features and accessories, making it a remarkably beautiful offering.

Although there is no reliable information concerning the Tuono 125 getting to the Indian market. The listing of the motorcycle on the official website implies that Aprilia could be staring at entering the motorcycle in the Indian market.

The organization had earlier confirmed that they were working on adding a low displacement motorcycle in the Indian market. Aprilia had even showcased the Tuono 150 and the RS150 in India, with several hoping for its launch at the Auto Expo 2020. Nevertheless, both motorcycles abandoned to make an impression at the Delhi Expo.

The organization could now be running on introducing an even more modest displacement motorcycle, with the Tuono 125. As per the business website, the Tuono 125 as the name implies will come powered by a 124cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor.

Although specific power and torque terms of the motorcycle have not been announced on the website, we expect it to be around 14bhp and 11Nm of torque; paired with a five-speed gearbox.

The suspension on the Aprilia Tuono 125 is within a set of 40mm upside-down forks at the front and an asymmetrical mono-shock suspension locked up at the back.

Braking is controlled by a single 300mm disc at the front with a 4-piston caliper and a 218mm disc at the rear with a single-piston caliper. The wheels on the Aprilia Tuono 125 are a couple of 17-inch metal wheels, with 100/80 and 130/70 front and rear profiles.

The Aprilia Tuono 125 also arises with a host of specialties and facilities as well. Few of these combine fuel-injection system, quick-shifter, racing-inspired exhaust, broad and high handlebar space, somewhat forward set footpegs, LED headlamps and DRLS sparked by its larger V4 1100 sibling and a multitude of others as well.

There is currently no data concerning the introduction of the Aprilia Tuono 125 in the Indian market. The motorcycle has, though, been listed on the official website, which has increased inventions.

If launched in the Indian market, the Aprilia Tuono 125 could be assessed in the range of Rs 1.10 lakh, ex-showroom and rival the likes of the KTM Duke 125. The bike is all excellent but the lack of ABS makes it unsafe to secure skids. Also, the blessed riding position may not comply with several riders.

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India has launched Honda Unicorn 160 BS6 in India. The 2020 Honda Unicorn 160 BS6 is rated from ₹ 93,593 and gets an abrupt rise in prices by about ₹ 13,500 over the outgoing Unicorn 150 ABS. Honda has rebranded the vehicle to only the ‘Unicorn’ denoting that only a free version will be on the proposal. This indicates the Unicorn’s 150 cc motor will be terminated and the bike has been updated to the 160 cc-power mills. The current CB Unicorn 160 also gets interrupted as a consequence, which emphasized a more premium design and a more robust motor. The new Unicorn 160 BS6 not simply receives an updated motor but updated styling, increased comfortability, and ultimately, a motor kill switch.

Talking on the ship, Minoru Kato, President, CEO & Managing Director, HMSI said, “Unicorn was the preeminent bike launched by Honda in India. After its launch, it has always been the benchmark when it arrives at motor subtlety and sleek performance. With a legacy of more than 16 years, brand Unicorn has been the leading selection of more than 2.5 million households.”

Talking about the Unicorn BS6, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales, and Marketing, HMSI said, “With the latest high-level PGM-FI HET 160 cc motor producing more power, Unicorn BS6 will elevate the bar for seamless polished performance along with the support of Honda security.”

The bike also now claims 8 mm of extra ground removal, while the seat length has grown by 24 mm that should make long-distance rides a lot more convenient. The big difference is also the extension of a motor kill switch on the Unicorn and that surely will cause a lot of future clients satisfied.

The bike also receives single-channel ABS as standard, and seal chain for some settlements and low maintenance.
