The Hyundai Creta is a very well loaded car. It comes with a host of features and everything you would need from a car of this segment and more. However, there are times when even the top-spec trim does not cut it for you, leaving you wanting for even more. In such a case, a modification job is your saviour, enabling you to get in a world of infinite accessories and add ons which could completely enhance the appearance of your car. Here is one video, showcasing a Hyundai Creta SUV which has been ‘pimped’ by its owner to suit his personal taste and as you will see, the possibilities are endless.
If you are clear as to what you want to do with the car, it makes sense to buy a basic variant instead so you have some more money to spare at the accessory shop. This Creta showcased in the video, which has been given quite a makeover, is, in fact, a base variant. Let us now talk about the changes done to this compact SUV.
The front end gets a bold look, which is highlighted by this aggressive grille which has the name Creta on it, screaming in anger and scaring other cars out of the way. The lettering also comes with LED lighting, which stays on just like the DRLs. The headlights too, get a projector setup and the indicators on both the headlight assembly and the fog lamps are dynamic and swoop across. The side gets further enhanced by additional chrome appliques present all across and massive 18-inch AMG styled wheels. The rear also gets a bold look with LED illumination and a bunch of other stuff that can be seen in the video. Here too, the indicators swoop across when switched on, pretty much how the new Audi matrix lights do.
On the inside, the white theme of the exterior continues. Pretty much every panel that used to be beige before has been turned white, the A-pillars and steering wheel included. The steering also comes with mounted controls which control the MID screen in the instrument console and the Android-powered touchscreen infotainment system. The screen is connected to a set of banging speakers which sound pretty neat and bassy. Other additions in the interior include extra soft seat covers, ambient lighting, illuminated scuff plates and some more. At the end of the video, the owner also talks about the amount of money these changes have cost, so do have a look.
Harley-Davidson will launch two new bikes in India: 2019 Forty-Eight and Street Glide Special.
The Forty-Eight Special is an all-new model for India and gets a larger 1200cc motor.
This new product gets ‘Tallboy’ handlebars, new graphics and makes 36 per cent more torque than the Forty-Eight.
It is expected to be priced around Rs 11.5 lakh.
The 2019 Street Glide Special will replace the 2018 model that is currently on sale.
Harley-Davidson gave us a taste of its new 1200cc Sportsters in Croatia last year. Of the Iron 1200 and Forty-Eight Special we rode there (read ride review here), only one was expected to make it to our shores and now it is here. The Forty-Eight Special essentially is the Forty-Eight sold here but with a few cosmetic updates and a larger 1200cc heart.
Now, the 1200cc motor is nothing new as Harley-Davidson used to sell a 1200cc engine bore kit for existing Iron 883 and Forty-Eight owners for quite some time now. The new 1202cc motor is a bored-out version of Harley’s 883cc air-cooled evolution motor. What it does is increase torque output by 36 per cent while increasing weight by just 1kg. The larger motor makes 96Nm at 3500rpm as compared to 68Nm on the Iron 883. So essentially, you now have more performance without a change in dynamics.
Differentiating the Forty-Eight Special from the smaller Forty-Eight are new 70’s era graphics on the peanut tank and a ‘Tallboy’ handlebar. Rest of the bodywork and underpinnings are the same. In terms of features, the Forty-Eight Special gets keyless ignition as an optional extra. Overseas, the Forty-Eight Special comes in three colours: Vivid Black, Wicked Red and Billiard White. We expect all three colours to feature on the India-spec model as well. In terms of pricing, the Forty-Eight Special is expected to cost about a lakh more than the Forty-Eight. That would put the expected pricing at around Rs 11.5 lakh.

Harley-Davidson will also be launching the 2019 Street Glide Special that among other updates gets a larger V-twin motor. It is now powered by Harley’s Milwaukee-Eight 114 (1868cc) motor instead of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1745cc) motor that does duty on the current 2018 Street Glide Special sold here. A larger motor means torque is up from 150Nm at 3250rpm to a massive 165Nm at an even lower 3000rpm. Surprisingly, Harley-Davidson has managed to keep the same 362kg kerb weight as before. Another important feature update is the introduction of a new Boom Box GTS touchscreen infotainment system that gets includes music, navigation and phone connectivity features. The current 2018 Street Glide Special retails for Rs 30.53 lakh (ex-showroom). Given the updates, we expect the new bike to cost Rs 1.5 lakh more. Stay tuned for more info.
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 ABS is priced at Rs 78,815.
The Honda Navi CBS is priced at Rs 47,110 (all prices, ex-Delhi).
Standard variants to be on sale for the time being.
Both remain mechanically and cosmetically unchanged.
The Honda Navi and the CB Unicorn 150 have received a much-needed safety update. While the funky 110cc Navi now gets CBS (Combi-Braking System), the 150cc CB Unicorn has been equipped with the same single-channel ABS unit found on the CB Hornet 160R. Naturally, the safety update has resulted in a hike in prices.
The Navi CBS is priced at Rs 47,110 (ex-showroom Delhi), which is a hike of Rs 1,796 over the standard variant. Meanwhile, the CB Unicorn 150 ABS is priced at Rs 78,815 (ex-showroom Delhi), which makes it Rs 6,500 more expensive than the non-ABS equipped variant. Meanwhile, Honda will continue to sell the standard variants for the time being.
Apart from the addition of the all-important safety kit, both bikes remain mechanically and cosmetically unchanged. The Navi received an update in the form a fuel gauge and new body-coloured parts back in July 2018. Powering it is a 109.19cc single-cylinder motor that churns out 8.03PS at 7000rpm and 8.94Nm at 5500rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a CVT.
Meanwhile, the Honda CB Unicorn 150 was brought back from the dead in 2016 owing to popular demand. It continues to be powered by the same 149.2cc single-cylinder engine that produces 13PS of power and 12.8Nm of torque.
With ABS and CBS set to become mandatory on all two-wheelers from April 1 onwards, bike manufacturers have been busy updating their offerings with CBS and ABS. However. While companies like Yamaha and Suzuki are charging Rs 600 to Rs 1,200 more for the addition of CBS, Honda has decided to hike up the prices of its CBS-equipped models by almost Rs 1,800, which is a significant premium.
A similar theme can be seen on its ABS variants as well. Honda retails the single-channel ABS-equipped CB Hornet 160 R for a premium of Rs 5,500. Meanwhile, Royal Enfield Thunderbird offers a more safer dual-channel unit for a premium of just around Rs 5,000.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has updated the long-running CB Unicorn 150 with Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS) in the country. The 2019 Honda CB Unicorn 150 is priced at Rs 78,815 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is about ₹ 6500 more expensive than the non-ABS version.
The bike now gets a single-channel ABS unit like a lot of the manufacturer’s other offerings and is paired with the front wheel’s 240 mm disc brake. The rear continues to get a 130 mm drum brake set-up. The Honda CB Unicorn 150 is one of the longest running models from the bike maker in India and such has been the demand, that the model was brought back on sale despite the updated 160 cc version being introduced a couple of years ago.
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 ABS continues with the no-nonsense design that has aged well over the years, while the long seat and soft suspension set-up make add to the comfortable ride quality on the motorcycle. Power figures remain the same on the 2019 CB Unicorn 150 with the 149.2 cc single-cylinder engine churning out 12.73 bhp at 5500 rpm and 12.8 Nm of peak torque at 5500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
The bike gets telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear. In terms of features, the CB Unicorn 150 gets an analogue instrument console, tubeless tyres, chrome accents on the headlamp, exhaust and carburettor cover. The fuel tank capacity stands at 13 litres. The motorcycle is offered in three colour options – black, red and grey. The CB Unicorn 150 ABS competes against a host of other long running motorcycles in this space including the Bajaj Pulsar 150, Hero Achiever 150 and the TVS Apache RTR 160.
Honda has opened bookings for the new 2019 CBR650R which is slated to launch in the next couple of months. The new CBR650R will replace the now-discontinued CBR650F in India and is a huge improvement over the later. Here is a comprehensive image gallery of the 2019 Honda CBR650R replete with information.
For starters, the CBR650R has a sportier design language that seems inspired by Honda’s flagship CBR1000RR litre-class superbike.
It features a tightly packaged skin that looks far better than the previous CBR650F’s bulbous bodywork.
There are two colour options on offer: Red and Black.
You now have revised design elements in the form of a smaller, more compact exhaust and the supersport style footpegs sit 3mm back and 6mm higher.
The meatier tail section gets more pronounced and comfortable split grab rails.
A revised fuel tank design means the capacity has dropped from 17.3 litres to 15.4 litres.
The new headlamps are now a twin-setup and having LED lighting allows designers to make them slimmer and sleeker.
Also new is a blue backlit full-digital instrument console. The clip-on handlebars now sit below the triple tree clamps and are set 30mm forward for a more focussed riding position.
You now get Honda’s Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which essentially is multi-stage traction control. You also get the option to switch it off.
The 649cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four motor has been heavily revised. It gets new intake and exhaust ports, updated cam timing and a higher compression ratio.
With these new upgrades, the new motor makes 95PS at 12,000rpm (up by 3PS) and 64Nm at 8500rpm (up by 1Nm). It now revs up to 12,000rpm, 1000rpm higher than before.
The six-speed gearbox now comes with a slipper clutch.
Weight is down by
6kg thanks to an updated lighter frame and a smaller fuel tank. The Suspension setup has been updated as well.
You have front
Showa Separate Function upside-down front forks and a preload-adjustable rear monoshock. The 310mm dual discs get radially mounted Nissin brake calipers for better stopping power.
These new updates should make the new CBR650R a sportier bike than its predecessor.
Honda has promised to keep the new CBR650R’s ex-showroom price below Rs 8 lakh. Thats a sweet deal as you get a better design, more features, an updated motor and sportier suspension at a price increase of no more than Rs 70,000.
The new CBR650R is expected to launch in the next couple of months while deliveries for the bike is expected to commence by April. Stay tuned for more info.
With its bold face (and bright green paint), the Kona certainly makes a statement in the compact crossover class. Nick Miotke/Roadshow
will soon launch a crossover smaller than the in the US, and it sounds like we’ll see the new super-small SUV at the in April.
According to , the A-segment utility vehicle won’t just be a shrunken-down Kona. “It’s smaller and it’s distinctively different than Kona,” SangYup Lee, head of Hyundai’s Global Design Center, told Motor Trend. “This one is almost a very boxy, bold, bull-doggy character.”
We’re big fans of the Kona here at Roadshow. In our in-depth review of the compact crossover, we said it “shines in its segment,” and that “its affordable price tag and approachable tech make it absolutely worth your consideration.”
With Kona pricing coming in right around $20,000, we expect the A-segment SUV to undercut it by a few thousand dollars. We’ll know more when the SUV shows its face in New York this spring.
Yamaha has launched the 2019 MT-09 in India, but since it’s being brought in as a CBU, it attracts a high price tag of Rs 10.55 lakh (ex-showroom), while its rivals are priced way lesser. In case you don’t mind looking beyond the performance streetfighter segment, here are some other options you could choose from.
1: Harley-Davidson Forty Eight: If you don’t want an in-your-face naked motorcycle and prefer a comfortable set of wheels, you could consider the Harley-Davidson Forty Eight. With prices starting from Rs 10.58 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Sportster costs only Rs 3,000 more than the MT-09. It is powered by a massive 1,202cc, air-cooled, V-Twin motor that produces 60.8PS at 5,500rpm and 96Nm of torque at 4,250rpm, mated to a five-speed unit. It is not assisted by a slipper clutch and instead, you get a cable-operated clutch. The front gets non-adjustable 49mm forks with 91mm of travel and the rear is equipped with adjustable shocks with 40mm of travel.
In terms of features, you get a part-analogue, part-digital instrument cluster that displays information such as time, low fuel warning light, engine diagnostics readout, dual trip meters, and so on. Also, there are tonnes of customisation options available on the Forty Eight. You get six colour options to choose from (red, blue, grey, gold, black and orange), a bobber-style seat, different footpegs, among other options. So, if you are a Harley fanboy and want a sportster under Rs 11 lakh, the Forty Eight makes perfect sense.
2: Triumph Bonneville T120: If you don’t like the idea of a big, shouty American sportster, let us introduce you to the Triumph Bonneville T120. Priced at Rs 9.97 lakh (ex-showroom, India), you could save around Rs 60,000 if you opt for the T120 instead of the MT-09. Don’t be fooled by its retro looks though. It gets all the equipment you’d expect on a modern motorcycle. Its suspension setup consists of KYB forks at the front with 120mm of travel and pre-load adjustable absorbers with 120mm of travel at the back. The cruiser is equipped with dual-channel ABS, traction control, LCD instrument cluster and heated grips. Just like the Forty Eight, the T120 gets a 1200cc engine too. But here, the parallel-twin motor produces 80PS of power and 105Nm of torque at 3100rpm, coupled with a six-speed transmission.
3: Kawasaki Versys 1000 If you want to discover uncharted territories, the MT-09 won’t be the right fit for you. What you need is an adventure tourer that can withstand anything and is potent enough to tackle any territory. Enter the Kawasaki Versys 1000. The 2019 Versys 1000 has a sticker price of Rs 10.69 lakh (ex-showroom, India), which is Rs 3 lakh less than the previous model. With the update, the Versys 1000 now gets better brakes – the conventionally mounted units at the front are now replaced with radially mounted calipers, while the rear gets a single 250mm petal disc as well. The liquid-cooled, inline-four engine produces 120PS of power at 9,000rpm and 102Nm of max torque at 7,500rpm, mated to a six-speed transmission. In terms of equipment, the Versys 1000 gets cruise control, a slipper clutch, traction control, IMU-equipped engine and chassis management system and dual-channel ABS.
4: Triumph Street Triple RS If you want a hooligan that can be thrashed around a racetrack and accompany you on a soothing Sunday ride, Triumph’s Street Triple RS fits the bill perfectly. The standard Street Triple costs Rs 9.19 lakh, whereas, the RS has a price tag of Rs 11.13 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom, India). The street-naked motorcycle has won many accolades over the years and is still regarded as one of the best all-round motorcycles on sale right now. Its 765cc, liquid-cooled, in-line, three-cylinder engine puts out 123PS at 11,700rpm and 77Nm of torque at a staggering 10,800rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox. It features 41mm upside-down forks with 115mm of travel and fully-adjustable shocks at the rear with 131mm of travel. Braking setup includes 310mm M50 monobloc with 4-piston calipers at the front and a single disc at the rear with a single piston. In terms of electronic aids, it gets five riding modes (Rain, Road, Sport, Track and Custom), a TFT display, ABS, switchable traction control and a quickshifter.
5: Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R If you are a track junkie and you want a middleweight sportbike, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R might just cut it. Powerful engine? Check. High-end underpinnings? Check. Performance? Check. The high point is that the ZX-6R costs just Rs 10.49 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Its potent 636cc, liquid-cooled, inline-four engine pumps out 130PS. With RAM assist, power is bumped up by 6PS, bringing the total power output to a staggering 136PS! And that makes it the most powerful motorcycle in this list. And oh, it also gets all the bells and whistles that you can expect from a supersport motorcycle – there’s multi-level traction control, slipper clutch, power modes, power modes, and the likes on offer.
So, what would you rather have? A big, fat American Sportster, a classic cruiser, a savvy adventure tourer, a versatile naked bike or a track monster? Quite a conundrum, right?
Big Biking Commune 2019: Veena Shetty, Roshni Misbah and Maral Yazarloo
Chennai is set to host South India’s inaugural Big Biking Commune 2019, starting today at the Chariot Beach Resort in Mahabalipuram, hosting over 250 biking clubs, 8,000 bikers with over 100 motorcycle brands doing a pit-stop as they make the temple town their home for three days. With workshops, stunt shows and vintage as well as custom-made bike exhibitions, it is going to be every motorhead’s dream. Having worked in the automobile industry for over 20 years, Arun Kumar, Convenor of the Big Biking Commune says, “The idea for the festival came after I observed that there is a desperate need for an annual fixture for the motorcycling community in India.” Being one-of-its-kind, Arun is leaving no stone un-turned in making it a gigantic success as the festival also has off-roading workshops for different terrains, inter-club competitions and also bike club parades as people share their biking stories in a segment called My Story. With International Women’s Day only a week away, we decided to get up close and personal with three of India’swomen bikers, before make their way to one of South India’s biggest adrenaline-pumping event.
‘The Hijabi biker’ Seeing women bikers on the road isn’t uncommon these days. However, while biking still seems like a man’s game, Delhi-based Roshni Misbah is on a different track, after first being spotted on the road to Jamia Millia Islamia University. “We often say we are living in a modern world but I would say it’s not even half true as it’s very difficult for society to digest the view of a girl riding a bike,” Roshni immediately elucidates. However, she has been able to pursue her interest in riding bikes only because her parents have been really supportive, or it would have been a distant dream, she adds. It isn’t really surprising then when she tells us that the one aspect of riding is the freedom it gives the rider, which she would not have known if her father didn’t allow her to start riding the bike.
Two years later, Roshni, or the Hijabi Biker as she is popularly called, has rode across the entire country on her 1811 cc Indian Chief Vintage. However, While the 24-year-old biker is often seen riding the Indian Chief or the Suzuki Intruder 1800, she is itching to take her newest superbike the Kawasaki ZX6R on the race track before riding it around the world. With the Big Biking Commune commencing, Roshni says she cannot wait to ride in South India, however, that is not all for the biker as she also rides for many causes — education for the girl child being among the most prominent.“It is so good to see so many women bikers in India travel across the country to participate in this event and I feel I will make more friends who talk like me (motorcycle talks),” says Roshni, as we ask her about her excitement levels for the upcoming mega meet. Biking comes with a certain style and it is not hard to notice that Misbah is quite the fashionista on two wheels. However, she added that it wasn’t always like that as he fewer options for women, made her get helmet accessories for ponytails, cat helmets while adding a dash of pink to her outfit, stepping up the fashion game by a mile.”You might soon see a Powerpuff Girls-themed bike on the road,” trails off Roshni, with a laugh.
Born to ride Bengaluru-based Veena Shetty has been a biker than many others. Having started in 2000 while she was still in college, she recalled that her first bike was the Yamaha RX 100, which was quite a rage back then. However, she has come a long way since then and even owns two bikes — a Kawasaki Versys 650 which she tells us was always her dream to own, and the Royal Enfield Interceptor. For Veena, biking is all about the feeling of brotherhood and the feeling extended to one of her most memorable trips, K2K (Kashmir to Kanyakumari) trip, she did with various bikers across the country. “It was an instant plan over a call with a rider from South for which I took off the same weekend for a ten-day trip,” Veena says. Over the next few days, they were accompanied by several other riders who welcomed them and showed them around, making it quite an enriching experience for her. On the other hand, being a female biker has never been easy, as she recalls that during one of her rides through Punjab, people literally stopped in their tracks to see her riding. She even recalls them saying, “Oye kudi te Bullet’, however, she adds that her husband has always encouraged and motivated her to ride all the time.
At Big Biking Commune 2019, Veena will be one of the many speakers telling people about her ride experiences, however, she is already making plans to ride to Bhutan, Spiti, Sach Pass and the Golden Quadrilateral next. Counting on off-road racer and Super Cross champion CS Santosh, who she hopes to meet one day, she also has several others including a 45-year-old mother-of-two, who are on her list, who inspire her every day. Veena is also the founder of Roaring Riderz, which she started a little over two years ago with five riders but now has over 200 passionate riders, who run by the fuel.
Fuel for Fashion For Maral Yazarloo, being born in Iran, a country where women are not allowed to ride in public or get a license, being a biker has been quite an achievement and she has never looked back ever since she first fell in love with the Harley Davidson 48 in India, a little over seven years ago. Maral is also the only woman in Asia and the Middle East to ride solo across seven continents and 64 countries. “I am happy to break the stereotype of middle eastern women and the idea of biking, while also getting married in Machu Picchu and having my baby and still continuing the ride,” Pune-based Maral tells us with conviction. Being a female biker does get you a lot of attention but often it is unwanted and Maral believes that women have to be careful to not let the people get too close or make stops wisely while on the road to avoid dangerous situations. The 37-year-old encouragingly reveals that the number of female riders in India is increasing because while she used to first be the only one at the Harley and Ducati meets in 2012, all-women bikers group Bikerni are riding all over India and Lady Bikers of India, which she founded also see an increasing number of women bikers on the road .
Visibly very good at changing gears in her life, Maral juggles her passion for biking with being an artist as well as a fashion designer, and she even opened her first store House of Maral Yazarloo in JW Marriott Pune in 2012. “I used the opportunity of being on the road and travelling to remote villages to learn about their fashion and pick up samples to work on my new collections,” Maral explains as goes on to say that she has displayed them in Dubai, Italy, France and even London.
The Big Biking Commune 2019 is a three-day event from February 22-24.
