Auto Wrap-Up: Cars and Motorcycles That Grabbed Headlines This Week (March 13 – March 19)
From the new Bajaj Pulsar NS to the CNG Brezza, here’s our weekly auto wrap-up.
From Bajaj updating its NS line-up with USD forks to Brezza’s newly-launched CNG variant, here is a round-up of the top two- and four-wheelers that wooed us this week (March 13 – March 19).
Bajaj Pulsar NS
After launching the NS with upside-down forks in Brazil, Bajaj has updated the Indian line-up of the NS 200 and 160. Both models now come with upside-down forks and a dual-channel anti-lock braking system.
Kawasaki Eliminator and Z900RS
Remember the Kawasaki Eliminator? The OG cruiser has made a comeback with a parallel-twin, 398cc engine that is all set to take on the Honda Rebel 500. Not to forget, the Z900RS has made a return after a hiatus of three years. The return of the motorcycle may put a smile on your face, but the new price tag will not.
1290 Super Duke RR
The 1290 Super Duke RR has also made a return, but unfortunately, this motorcycle is not for everyone. KTM has made it clear that it will sell only 500 units worldwide, which means, you should have tons of money to get this into your garage.
MG Comet EV
Once upon a time, India had the cute, small Tata Nano, which unfortunately did not do well among Indian customers. However, MG believes its tiny car, the Comet EV, will be able to survive in the Indian market. A rebadged version of the Wuling Air EV, the Comet is likely to be launched in the second half of the year.
Hyundai Verna’s long list of safety kit
Can Hyundai become the safest car in India? Only time will give the answer to this question, but we are certainly excited because the premium sedan has a long list of safety features—30 to be precise. Some of the features are six airbags, speed sensing auto door lock, a burglar alarm, an emergency stop signal, lane-keeping assist, and more.
