The Emflux One is here and talks with tons of promises for all under $10K

125 mph top speed, in-built action cameras, AI brain, top-spec equipment list and a small price tag

This is the Indian startup eco-system’s gift to the world. A motorcycle in the newfound electric business that has being brimmed with bells and whistles not found on any other production bike. Emflux Motors is entering with tall claims of having a 125 mph superbike that runs on electricity for up to 100 miles at full range. And if you go full-blown-track-mode, expect a range of around 50 miles.

Called the "Emflux One", it was unveiled at a recently concluded Indian Auto Expo and is aiming at the premium market that caters to the mid-weight motorcycle segment. The company has been working on their superbike for just over a couple of years, unlike other startups that have taken more than half a decade to develop their products.

Here is a custom Honda CX500 with tire warmers

The "Highflyer". From Austria, with love

There will be times to build and create a motorcycle that is all practical and sensible, and not just that looks good to impress your friends. Then there comes a time for just hanging loose and to go Full Monty on creating a bonkers of a bike without having a client or a brief in mind.

One example of that Custom scene is this build on a Honda CX500 by the National Custom Tech crew of David Widmann, Kurt Kosjek, and Manuel Tilke. Created in their workshop in Feldkirchen, Austria, the crew stripped the old Honda right down to its nuts and bolts, before rebuilding it to include the need of bloody tire warmers. How cool is that?

It is called the Honda CX 500 Highflyer.

Hearly Davidson's Projet LiveWire to hit production in 18 months

Hearly Davidson’s Projet LiveWire to hit production in 18 months

The Milwaukee brand will enter a new phase in 2019

You know things are actually getting serious when stalwarts like the Harley Davidson are putting their money and testing out electricity to power their machines. And if you have been following the Marvel studio’s Avenger series, you might have caught the stunning Scarlett Johansson picking up things for the boys on a stealthy looking black widow’s electric motorcycle.

That is the Project LiveWire. Harley’s proprietary shift to an alternative power source. And if you have been keeping up to date with its progress, you might find it as blasphemous as it was for me that Harley took so long for it to enter the production phase.

Luckily, our friends at Autoblog report that the Milwaukee firm is steaming ahead with the Project LiveWire and will soon hit to production. If everything goes right, the electric bike will hit the market as soon as 18 months from now.

Could this be the new Speed Triple?

Could this be the new Speed Triple?

A new video from Triumph suggests the new model to come as 2018 model

Gone are the days when the word “Triumph” gave us the sexy vintage feels. Now, the brand has evolved big time into making machines that still keeps the sexiness alive but has turned into a whole new stigma. You’ll know what I mean when you see the Bonneville Bobbers’, the Tigers’, Speedmasters’ and the Street Triples’.

They are the new breadwinners and are so good that they are minting money for the iconic British brand. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and the Street Triples have become favorites for naked lovers.

Adding to the list will be the all-new Speed Triple naked roadster. The “Hooligan” of bikes. Triumph just teased the bike in a new video that gives us a launch date of January 29th.

TVS Apache RR 310 = BMW G 310 R ?

TVS Apache RR 310 = BMW G 310 R ?

Well, atleast 75% of them match spec to spec

Back in 2013, BMW teamed up with TVS Motors in a Euro 20 million partnership to support them with the manufacturing and distribution of smaller capacity motorcycles, starting with the G 310R. TVS also benefitted from this venture by bringing in investments and expertise to further broaden their R&D capability to improve on existing projects and bring in innovations across their product lineup.

The Apache RR 310 is the first fruit of the venture, and it sure promises big to the Indian market. It was showcased as the Akula concept a year ago, and TVS has made justice with the transformation of the production-ready bike.

How much does the Apache sportsbike have in common with the naked G 310 R?
Let’s find out.

TVS Apache RR 310

TVS Apache RR 310

A G 310 R with a full fairing kit and a different badge

TVS Motor Company is the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India, and the Apache has been the company’s flagship brand since its launch in 2006. The nameplate, which started with the unveiling of a 150cc motorcycle, has spawned into a variety of streetfighters, which somewhat have managed to create new benchmarks when it comes to delivering raw power in a relatively affordable package.

Now, a brand new fully-faired 310 cc sports bike has arrived for the big party and will replace the flagship Apache RTR200 4V. It’s called the Apache RR 310 and has been co-developed with BMW Motorrad.

Based on the G310 platform, the Apache RR 310 carries over the powertrain, suspension unit, chassis, brakes, radials and the exhaust from the entry-level naked German. Wearing a full fairing silhouette, first ever at TVS, it might as well make it off as the next BMW G310 RR.

Expect BMW to get it to our shores since TVS has no plans to cater other than the huge Indian market for now.
