The Yamaha XVS1300A Midnight Star has been described as a laid-back cruiser, but make no mistake about it, there’s nothing ’laid back’ about its performance.

That’s because the XVS1300A Midnight Star is powered by a 1,304cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, 40valves, V-type 2-cylinder OHC engine, one that’s capable of unleashing a world of power and performance that riders ultimately crave. At the heart of this bike, you’ll find the engine features forged pistons, 4-valve heads and shortstroke con-rods, so that every time you hit the throttle you feel a knockout, low-down punch, that turns into great power.

The bike’s engine make-up has also been added with twin balancers that tune out the unwanted vibrations. It also has an intelligent Unified Braking System that provides an independent or combined wheel braking for total control.

As far as its design characteristics are concerned, the XVS1300A Midnight Star takes the classic 1930s-inspired styling, with a tight body and low silhouette that’s old-school and adds a radical new twist.

Combine the engine, the chromed-up style, the throbbing torque, and the very best of 21st century bike technology, and you have a bike that you can proudly say is far more aggressive than it’s laid back looks suggest.

India Yamaha seems to be in a good spot these days, at least since the new Yamaha Crux became a hot seller in the Indian market. Combining a low price tag and impressive mechanical characteristics, the Yamaha Crux is definitely well suited for a mass market like India.

The Crux isn’t a bike that you’d consider when you’re looking for a world-beater, but if it’s astonishing looks or eye-catching graphics that you’re after, it’s a great choice, even with its simple and sober color schemes. More to that, the Crux also carries some pretty useful features, including an analogue instrument panel, a standard braking system and suspension system, and an engine that packs an impressive punch, at least relative to its stature.

Speaking of its powertrain, the engine of the Yamaha Crux produces top power of 7.6 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and a peak torque of 7.85 Nm at 6,000 rpm. In order to use its engine output in a better way, the company has fitted it with four-speed manual gearbox with the multiplate clutch.

That’s more than enough for us to call this bike worthy of the price consumers will have to shell out for it.

Compared to the previous model the 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 didn’t changed too much. However, the main upgrade is the addition of a traction control system. If in the past traction control was a rarity among motorcycles, in the latest years has started to become a mainstream feature.

Apart from the traction control system the new YZFR-R1 has also received a fresh nose, a slotted top yoke inspired by the YZR-M1, new muffler end caps, a longer sear shock and grippier footpegs. The rear spring reat is also slightly softer which improves the ride comfort.
Though despite its upgrades the Yamaha YZF-R1 is still a half step behind models like the Aprilia RSV4 or Kawasaki ZX-10R which would beat it any time on a race track. However, the Yamaha YZF-R1 is a better daily commuter as is more comfortable, smooth and fast enough to keep your dopamine levels high.
