    Tata Motors’ new premium hatchback, the Altroz has successfully established itself among Indian car buyers since it's launch in January 2020. The standard Altroz is available with either a 1.2L Revotron Naturally aspirated 3 cylinder petrol or a 1.5L Revotorq 4 cylinder turbo diesel engine. The 86PS petrol engine is fine for average users, however it’s definitely not enough for the enthusiasts.

         The turbo petrol version of the Tata Altroz is expected to be launched on the 13th of January 2021.

    Here are the details on the new Altroz turbo petrol:

    • Will be available with a 1.2L Revotron 3 cyl turbo

      petrol engine similar to the Tata Nexon.

    Kawasaki has been teasing them riders with short clips of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R. Jumping straight to the heart of the matter, what has been the most fascinating point of this motorcycle is the engine. A 250cc, inline four motor is just what every biker would yearn for. Not just for the performance but also mostly for the kind of tunes it would produce. Just like the old days when 250cc four cylinder motors revved up to around 20000 rpm. Not that this one would but 17000 rpm is still sounds very, very exciting.

    There are rumours that there could be

    two variants of this motorcycle but the news of its official launch date in Indonesia is still not out. We suspect it could happen once the world is out of the Covid- 19 menace. Showcased in the Tokyo Motor Show, the Ninja Zx-25R takes a lot of styling from the Ninja ZX-10R. Obviously, this has been the trend for quite sometime.

    Princing is expected to hover around the equivalent of 5 Lakh Rupees in the Indonesia. Now, you would think that sort of money is pretty high for a 250cc motorcycle. But, this new Ninja’s four cylinder motor is expected to have a power output between 50 and 60 PS which in our books is a great! Combine that kind of power with the its lightweight body. What you’d get is a power to weight ratio that matches some big motorcycles.

    In fact, that sort of power would surpass the kind of competition that 300cc- 400cc single cylinder motorcycles offer. The Ninja ZX-25R’s performance package and the its sleek, sharp stance could mostly make is a highly desirable track tool, ready to keep up with some of the big boys for almost a fraction of the price as it would attract lesser taxes, lesser insurance premiums. What’s even better is that one would get the inline four soundtrack that you often get from big capacity motorcycles and, one would also save on maintenance money as the Ninja ZX-25R would be cheaper to maintain than the bigger monsters.

    From what we’ve seen in the videos released by Kawasaki, the ZX-25R could come with adjustable suspension at the front and back, electronics in the form of rider aids like traction control, quick shifter and ABS. Once launched, the Ninja would be available in Indonesia initially. But the arrival of this dream motorcycle to India isn’t confirmed, mostly owing to the high value price tag it would attract via the CKD route. In fact, it could get more expensive than a Kawasaki Ninja 400. As a result, enthusiasts would definitely think a lot before buying such an expensive 250cc motorcycle. But, this could be the least expensive inline- four motorcycle one could get their hands on. Would you buy it?
