  1. Yamaha Fazer 250

    No, It like pulsar range. Yamaha is creating its own range of Indian made bikes.
  2. Yamaha FZ16 Thread.

    Damn. This bike looks damn damn damn goood!!!!!!!!!!!. The tyre thickness, the tank design. Everything is wov... Somehow, pulsar looses its elegant looks
  3. Xylo E6 or SX4?

    mostly driven in city, then why Xylo? Xylo has better ride quality than SX4 due to its softer suspension. why not hyundai Verna. Best sedan for the city. Low rpm torque. Good diesel mileage. comfortable ride quality.
  4. TATA: Service costs?

  5. Fiat 1.3 MJD is so much in the news. Almost all manufacturers have fitted them in their cars, except manufacturers like Hyundai who have their own R&D. The hyundai engine has more displacement and would not be fair to compare value by value. But how about a relative comparison? Which is better engineered? The Hyundai's 1.5 crdi engine isnt lagging a lot. Its has the same Flat torque curve, good mileage and awesome torque and bhp. I would say its a tough fight between these two. How do you feel? Mileage figures city/highway: Hyundai Getz 1.5 crdi - 12.5/18 km/l Swift Vdi - 14/19 km/l Engine Hyundai Getz Prime 1.5 GVS CRDi Maruti Suzuki Swift VDi (Diesel) Engine Type/Model 1.5L 4-Cylinder DOHC Diesel 1.3L, DOHC, DDiS Diesel Displacement (cc) 1493 1248 Power (PS@rpm) 110@4000 75@4000 Torque (Nm@rpm) 235@1900 190@2000 Valve Mechanism DOHC DOHC Bore (mm) 75 69.6 Stroke (mm) 87 82 Compression Ratio 17.8 17.6 No of Cylinders (cylinder) 4 4 Cylinder Configuration In-line Inline Valves per Cylender (valve) 4 4 Ignition Type Engine Block Material Cast Iron Block Head Material Aluminium Alloy Fuel Type Diesel Diesel Fuel System CRDi Common rail multi injection @ 1400 bar jbond8302009-02-15 10:12:18
  6. Maruti A-Star Test Drive Report

    So, anyone else got the A-star.????
  7. 1)Two cylinder engines will be smoother, less noise and vibration and have better pickup. 2)While single cylinder engines give the best mileage What will you choose if you had these two options Edit PS: A 500 cc bike, can be either a single cylinder of 500c, or two cylinders of 250cc. But the latter will not be fuel efficient, but have other advantages as mentioned above jbond8302009-02-09 17:30:35
  8. Two cylinder or Single cylinder bikes?

    I guess, it more to do with engine design. Even thought the 4 cylinders are superior in performance, a very old engine will lack the performance of a newly designed 3 pot engine.
  9. Two cylinder or Single cylinder bikes?

    Single cylinder engine has a more powerful 'power stroke'(combustion) than that of a two cylinder. So this results in more torque. The excess torque is very much noticeable at low rpm speed than at high rpm. But the two cylinder will be much responsive. i.e smooth acceleration.
  10. Benefits Nitrogen in Tires

    Good Idea we will fly then..... Freedom from traffic jam and bad roads..) Red bull... NICE Idea !!! You can add the small Heartattack cure pills which contain nitrogylcerin. Your fuel will have higher octane then, and your car goes crazy. Its cheap man!!!. (just 2 rs). Saw this technique used in a movie " Worlds fastest Indian"
  11. Hyundai 1.5 crdi vs Fiat 1.3 MJD which is better?

    I think Getz diesel and Swift diesel and equally priced. So Getz isnt overpriced.
  12. Cars which dont rattle ?

    Dude, I thought all service stations are closed. Then corsa is a pretty good second hand buy.
  13. Cars which dont rattle ?

    Thats true. I have seen few corsa. They look new. You got some good service centers around your place? Or is chevy doing the service for Opel too?
  14. Cars which dont rattle ?

    So toyota, skoda and honda have no rattles. Heard that even the palio rattles. Read it a ownership review. But palio 1.1 is a damn smooth car.
  15. Cars which dont rattle ?

    does the hyundai i10 rattle?
  16. Swift sets sales record

    swift has become a life style. Awesome car.
  17. Chevrolet Aveo U-VA Mileage Feedbacks?

    Within city, U-VA give a mileage of 11-12kmpl. Highway - 16kmpl. What color are you opting for?
  18. Hyundai 1.5 crdi vs Fiat 1.3 MJD which is better?

    Devil and DD gave a lot of info about diesel engines.. Keep it coming and lets keep it cool here. @rkrk. I can share some characteristics of 3 cyl engines because I own one. - 3 cylinders are theoretically more efficient than 4 cylinders. Hence more mileage. - 3 cylinders have more NVH than the 4 cylinder. - 3 cylinders will give you a jerky ride. Mainly while shifting gears A-star is a 3 cylinder car and it doesnt feel bad at all. But, when you keenly watch out for the above charactertics, they are identifiable. I think 3 cylinder engines will give you better torque.
  19. Differences between Scooters and Bike

    thanks. Thats vital info.
