I think , the 2 wheeler segment is on a roll this time! Plenty of launches , and this looks pretty exciting after some dull period!

It does look better

I'm sure there will be better looking aftermarket headlamps and Grill. Just hope the pricing is right Plastics are better and niggles are gone. Too much too ask TATA?

I still miss the tail-gate mounted spare wheel (which was a part of the current generation Safari) . In my perspective it some-how seemed to add a more muscular outline to the Safari

IMO they are not going to have an ABS variant because of CBR150 + ABS option ~= CBR250 without ABS.

The DC Design Avanti's headlights remind me of the Ferrari 458 Italia. Can't say the same about the rest of the design though

While there is no doubt that the Safari Storme is an evolution of the earlier gen Safari, one needs to remember that the earlier Safari was built by a completely "Indian" company (as Tata Motors was then) with little access to technology. So many years down the line, when Tata owns JLR and has access to the world's best SUV Tech, it seems a little strange that the evolution appears to be so slow. Maybe they will also start Evo1, Evo 2 etc until X for the Safari. Or is it that this is an interim update until a whole new SUV is released with JLR tech.

Well price wise, yes, will be competing with the CBR250R.
But to put things into perspective, the Deltabox frame is already being touted to being superior to the Tubular Diamond chassis. So handling on the R15 is still the best. The 150R produces only 1 BHP more than the R15. But the handling on the R15 tips it in the favour of the R15. Now slap on an ABS system onto the 150R and you have a machine which more than makes up for the gap in the handling perspective.
I see a very strong contender for rivaling the sheer performance of the R15 here. Specs wise, still neck-and-neck. But the addition of ABS will definitely put CBR150R in the lead.

3 cars I am aware of at the Maruti Suzuki stand are

1. Original SX4 (Is the same car which I believe was also showed earlier at previous Auto Expos) Only colour has been changed to Orange !!The interior is also re-done - black with orange stitching

2. Kizashi - The interiors are dark reddish brown and the front and rear bumper are all custom made !! The car is matte white

3. Vitara - Chocolate brown and I think once again the exterior is re-done

So not too much going on at the Suzuki stand this year !!

All the above cars were done at a garage we all know

Surprised!

However, i guess new R15 is good enough to stand up and fight this 150R..

Looking at it carefully, the front looks like a 458 had an accident and the centre section looks like the latest Lancia Stratos concept. I think DC has simply got a lack of originality. Sad that he doesn't tinker with what matters most - engines

Default Alto K10 Xlerate :)

This pocket rocket gets an awesome makeover! The Alto K10 Xlerate. Maruti just made a hot product hotter.

Wow! Wondering if this would hit showrooms soon. Any idea of what would be the cost of the entire body kit + alloys?

Looks perfectly matched No excesses here. The car certainly deserves to look like this!

Honda is all set to capture the Indian market. Good looking bikes with very effective pricing in its own class is giving the competitors a run for their money. I constantly hope that they also heed to the Customer Service part!
