2016 MV Agusta Brutale 1090 Review

The name MV Agusta is associated with history and performance that perhaps no other motorcycle manufacturer comes close to. It evokes images of exotic Italian racing heritage and a lineage that goes decades back in time, yet retains an aura of glamour and style. And this one – the one we are riding – is the new MV Agusta Brutale ... Read More »

Mahindra NuvoSport Review

There are certain roles which demand a special look. You’ve seen Amitabh in guise in Paa, Brad Pitt’s in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder and even Randeep Hooda in Sarabjit. Under all that make-up, you can still identify the actors; but it’s the role that demands this transformation. It’s not only in the ... Read More »

Honda NAVI: First Ride Review

Our first ride review of the Honda Navi today will not include words – Large, handsome and masculine.Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India’s self-developed and by far its boldest ever creation, the Navi turned out to be the big surprise at the 2016 Auto Expo and after waiting patiently, we were finally asked to ride HMSI’s little moto-scooter at an amusement ...

Jaguar F-Pace Review

The Jaguar F-Pace is not a sedan on stilts, it isn’t a plush little crossover, and nor is it a soft-roader. And yes it is NOT a Land Rover dressed for the red carpet either. There – now that we have that out of the way, let me tell you what it is. It is an SUV that puts the ... Read More »

Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Review

As I sit down to write my review of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, I am somewhat conflicted. It is after all rather ironic that I am talking about an SUV becoming one of Maruti Suzuki’s most significant products ever. Why? It is a small car specialist that has built its reputation and its business – globally and more so ... Read More »

Comparison Review: Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza vs Ford EcoSport vs Hyundai Creta

The new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza has really stormed in – initial bookings suggest this will be a mega hit for the market leader. As I said in my Vitara Brezza review I had honestly expected Maruti Suzuki to get brutal and severely undercut the competition with very aggressive prices. But for the most part the 6.99 lakh starting price ... Read More »

Exclusive: Renault Duster Facelift AMT Review

The Renault Duster has been a massive success for the French carmaker in India, and it has also been the NDTV Car of the Year 2013. After ruling the roost for several quarters, it was only in 2015 that the Hyundai Creta broke its stronghold. The Duster has already sold nearly 150,000 units in the country, and now is back ...

Royal Enfield Himalayan First Ride Review

A question posed at the technical briefing by Royal Enfield was whether the Himalayan has been tested extensively on city roads. Pat came the reply from the Himalayan project lead saying, of course, it has been tested on city roads but putting those pictures or videos just wouldn’t look good for an adventure tourer. Yeah, the folks at Royal Enfield ... Read More »

2016 Triumph Bonneville T120 Black: First Ride Review

We ride the new Triumph Bonneville T120 Black around sunny Cascais, Portugal. It’s an all-new bike, new aesthetics, new suspension, new chassis, and an all-new engine, which now gets liquid cooling. And this modern classic has gone more modern – with ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, riding modes – the works! The Triumph Bonneville is the quintessential classic, perhaps one ...
