Duke 390 The 3rd generation of the KTM 390 Duke is literally shaking the market with its sharp design which is now more edgy than before, making this bike more attractive and mean-looking at the same time.

Classic, gorgeous and with BMW's biggest engine, the BMW R18 | Price, Power, Mileage Features | HighRPM

 The motorcycle with vintage taste and with garnishing of modern leaves. The BMW R18, classy, retro, stylish and gorgeous machine with another level of character and presence. The looks and the aura of this bike is so freaking awesome that words can't express that. The way it is designed, the way everything mingles up with each other are just magnificent.

The bike comes with BMW's biggest displacement they ever created. Boxer engine give it great power and looks as well. R18 is available in two variants with open drive shaft. 

BMW R18 is a motorcycle which is another level of artistic language thus the price of this BMW is eye popping, 19.90 lakh to 22.55 lakh. This bike is available in two variants,

  • BMW R18.....19.90 lakh
  • BMW R18 First Edition.....22.55 lakh
This extraordinary machine is having exceptional engine which offers insane power but more than power it offers an astounding look and presence. 
The heart of the matter, 1802cc air/oil cooled 2 cylinder 4-stoke boxer engine with two chain driven camshaft, open drive shaft and double-cradle frame. The output of this engine is 89.8bhp of power at 4750rpm and torque of 158Nm at just 3000rpm. 
One important thing, this is the biggest displacement BMW ever made for their two wheels magic.
First Edition variant comes with chrome decorated engine. 

Not the most feature loaded BMW this is, it have,
  • Dual channel ABS
  • Analogue-digital instrument cluster
  • Analogue speedometer 
  • Digital tachometer 
  • Twin tripmeters
  • Digital tripmeters
  • Low fuel warning
  • Low oil warning
  • Clock 
  • Digital odometer 
  • Digital fuel gauge 
  • Engine kill switch 
  • Hazard lights
  • Keyless go 
In my opinion this bike is not about features and power it's all about riding, all about feeling the road.

The mileage is not that great but not bad either, it pay you 17.8kmpl and the fuel tank size is 16L.

It get spoke wheels, at front 120/70 19 tyre with 300mm twin disc rotors and Brembo calipers and at rear 180/65 B16 with 300mm disc rotor with Brembo brake. 
In First Edition variant you get brake calipers finished in chrome. 

The bike is full of LED lights,
Head light- LED 
Tail light- LED 
Blinkers- LED 
DRL- LED 

Measure the vehicle 
Length- 2.44m
Width- 96.4cm
Height- 1.23m
Wheelbase- 1.73m
Seat height- 69cm 
Ground clearance- Not Available

Looks
The design is absolutely magnificent, its level of detailing and level of art you can notice on this BMW is very rare. The aroma of BMW's rich history is very strong in this R18. Bike is looking dope from every angle, from every side, the boxer engine is looking lit. 
Front, maintaining the retro charm the round shaped head light with modern LED technology, this mixer gives great throw at night and appearance all the time. The blinkers are hanging from the handle bar have vintage kind of style but modern LED from inside. Get bar end mirrors, round shaped, small size and yes First Edition get chrome finishing there as well. Tyre size is also very impressive. The slight view of boxer engine is adding a very interesting effect. 

Side, first thing, length is incredible, it's a long motorcycle with lots of jaw dropping elements working greatly. The seat height is very low (cruiser) means good for everyone. But you won't have that laid back sitting position because of boxer, the engine is giving an incredible vibes just filling the bike with awesomeness. Two fish tail exhaust pipe at both sides of the bike reminding older day of motorcycle.
The ground clearance is very low therefore have to be super careful on bad roads and speed breakers but the thing which is more important, is that the engine and foot pegs are eager to touch the road while making the turn. The profile of the tyres are maintaining that angry and bad boy type look.
First Edition comes with white stripes meanwhile standard won't have that.
In my opinion this bike is a kind of beauty which looks more beautiful when the personality of the rider matches with the bike's. Comment if you think the same.

Rear, the width of the tyre is mind blowing, the blinkers are also very nicely participating in enhancing the looks of the bike. The boxer engine is still visible which is just stunningly increasing the beauty. Tail light is also very nicely designed. 

The tank is a piece of art itself, design of fuel cap is fantastic telling the story of detailing. 

Instrument cluster, cluster is simple retro style, analogue speedometer with small digital display which shows you fuel gauge, tachometer, tripmeter, time, odometer and other things. 

The bike is definitely expensive but the thing is that this bike is all about riding and keeping that thing in mind, I don't think so that the price tag is wrong because every single penny would be back to you when you ride it. One thing which I wish this bike should feature is cruise control. 
So, this is beautiful art by BMW, the BMW R18.......

Does Aprilia RS 457 has that Aprilia thing? | Price, Features, Power, Engine | HighRPM

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.  The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well. So, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two bikes which one succeeds in grabbing the market, and which one you should choose.
