Few thoughts about the Bajaj Dominar 400 launch

I’ve just finished watching the Dominar 400 launch stream. It took a lot of effort to not kill myself. Here are a few thoughts I had during the launch, about the bike, and the launch itself. What the fuck is wrong with Bajaj’s marketing department? While watching the launch feed, I really felt the need… Read More »

Kawasaki India, you’ve finally done the right thing

The 13 Kawasaki customers who were duped by Satyen Karandikar, finally got the bikes that they’d paid for. Kawasaki India organised a small ceremony to deliver the machines to their respective owners, the total value of the loss to them is upwards of a crore, which I’m certain they’ll pull out SNK’s ass, one coin… Read More »

The legend of Dilip Bam, a man after my own heart

The brightness produced by TWO bulbs being supplied thru a 35 watt cable is NOT as bright as a single bulb alone being supplied 35 watts. To understand this, just imagine: it is like one man marrying TWO nine-year old girls instead of ONE eighteen year old girl ! This is a piece from Dilip… Read More »

This is why I’ll never buy a Kawasaki, and neither should you

In case you’re already aware of the history of this fiasco and the underlying issues, please feel free to skip this article and directly sign the Change.org petition over here. I believe the more the number of signatures, the better leverage we have with Kawasaki, but it’s important to know what you’re fighting for, and… Read More »

Kawasaki India and the stupidity behind big brands

In case you don’t already know, 11 people booked bikes from SNK Kawasaki, Palm Beach, Navi Mumbai. None of them got anything, the dealer isn’t returning the money, and Kawasaki India says they can’t do shit. As always, all the useful stuff is on Team-BHP. If you are wondering why none of this was reported on any… Read More »

MotoGP mid-season review: It’s good to be alive in 2016

I recently watched an F1 race. In my defence, nothing else was up that weekend. Holy fucking gasoline, what a complete sham that sport has become. It’s basically a fight between the two Mercs, while the rest scramble to pick up the pieces. And then that whole radio fiasco and the stupid little penalties for… Read More »

Honda CBR250RR: Who the hell cares?

Everything hurts. Last week I drove to Bangalore. I was tired of motorcycles, tired of riding them, tired of thinking about them, so I thought this would be a nice change of scenery. My wife was with me, my sister was on the way, and I was sure The City of Gardens was going to… Read More »

Royal Enfield Himalayan Recall: I told you so

Don’t know how many of you watch Family Guy, but this is THE perfect representation of my thoughts right now. It’s actually not a big deal, anyone with half a brain could’ve told you this was going to happen. Everything from Yamaha R1 to Kawasaki ZX-10R to even the Ducati 1199 Superleggera have been recalled in… Read More »

MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 race results from Assen

What a beautiful day it was. In my mind, without a doubt, this was the best racing action I have ever seen in my life. Thanks to the weather, and the brilliant piece of asphalt that is Assen, all 3 classes gave us some extremely remarkable races, with even more shocking results. I don’t think… Read More »
