New Bajaj bikes on horizon </STRONG></FONT>
OVERDRIVE has spied two new motorcycles on test with Bajaj Auto.

Our exclusive pictures show a fully faired motorcycle with twin exhausts, definitely suggesting a multi-cylinder format. For reasons of cost and simplicity, we believe it to be a parallel twin, of quarter litre capacity.

A lot of effort has been lavished upon the cycle parts; the swingarm is a modern alloy item, operating a monoshock. The drive features a heavy duty chain and sprocket with a disc brake on the rear wheel to boot. The front obviously features a disc brake, with a rotor larger than the Pulsar’s. The bike also sports twin cans to satisfy all those wannabes with their dummy silencers, who abound in cities all over India. Rounding off the package are good tyres, with the rear a 130 section radial. The instrument cluster is modern, with the tachometer prominent as it should be on a performance-oriented motorcycle. The switchgear is of good quality, as much as we could make out from a quick peek.

Nice effort? Not really, since what you see in these pictures is a baby Ninja, a Kwacker ZZR250. This motorcycle definitely has grunt, compared to anything else in the market evident in the manner the test rider tried to outrun our ardent snapper. The bike should comfortably clock 100kmph in under 14 seconds, with max velocity (hopefully) in excess of 130kmph. However, given India’s preoccupation with fuel efficiency, this bike should manage 30kmpl or thereabouts.

Questioned during the Probiking launch, Rajiv Bajaj was forthright: “We have a long standing collaboration with Kawasaki. However, you cannot make money out of someone else’s hard work. But we are indeed looking at introducing another segment.” Which brings us to the crux of the issue. Is this the bike Bajaj will build for Kawasaki given the understanding between the two manufacturers wherein the Japanese manufacturer will outsource production of its small capacity bikes to Bajaj, given the Indian manufacturer’s cost-effectiveness? Or is this the bike that will be sold in the Indian market? Remember we spied two bikes. The second bike which we had barely a glance at looked more like a single but more contemporarily styled.

Pricing of either bike could be around the lakh rupee mark. Our sources predict this bike should hit the roads in three months or so. But there is no disguising the fact that Bajaj intends pushing the performance envelope further with this machine, which given the Bajaj flair could put quite a bit over the Karizma. Remember, the Pulsar crippled sales of the CBZ and Hero Honda might be left eating humble pie all over again.

any idea guys, about its name
knowing bajaj, it could be the "punisher" or the "asteroid" or the "photon" (no resemblance to the mighty VW phaeton)......

i doubt so- if my sources are correct, the new bike should have a top speed in the region of 140 kmph or so, and should post 0-100 in sub-10 seconds. now that would put the bike in a entirely different league; more in line with the comet. the zma stands as it is, and wouldn't pose any competition, simply because it'll be smoked by the mighty bajaj (or kawasaki).....my condolences to the comet owners....life would sure suck if a 100,000 rupee bajaj would thrash a 190,000 buck hyosung...

which brings me to the next point; i don't think many would lean towards a 250cc, full-faired, 100,000 rupee bajaj; unless it sports the kawasaki badge...

and more good news follows; a 350cc from HH, codenamed "dream" was expected by late 2005/early 2006, but after all the fuel-price hikes and the hoopla, they have decided to postpone the launch; dunno why, maybe because of some internal probs. also, honda is planning to bring in it's range of SBK's (yup, it's comfirmed) within a year; they are planning to bring in half-litre bikes, but the exact models are yet unknown. and in other news, yamaha has already started setting up it's wholly indian subsidiary for it's entire range, like keyboards, outboard motors,etc., and hush-hush whispers are going around about a quarter litre yamaha by 2005-end or mid-2006, followed by some mighty machines later....

Man 350cc from HH is equivalent to 250cc from bajaj LOL

p.s How about a Busa vs Veyron?

Busa 0 - 100 - 1.96 Veyron 0 - 100 - 2.5secs
Busa 0 - 160 - 2.90 Veyron 0 - 160 - 4 secs
You arenot stable at highspeeds

although unconfirmed, my sources tell me that the recent spate of bajaj's probiking bonanza is one of the factors in the launch of their "power bikes", and the first launch should be by sometime late this year or early next year (first quarter 2006)... again, although unconfirmed, one of their powerbikes is claimed at 32 bhp or so...

busa:0-100:3.0 secs;veyron:0-100:2.5 secs
busa:0-200:7.6 secs;veyron:0-200:7.3 secs
busa:0-300:20.xx seconds;veyron:0-300:16.7 secs
busa:top speed:309 kmph;veyron:top speed:406 kmph
