So, under the hood, a 4395cc V8 DOHC S68 Twin-turbo petrol heart is beating madly and this heart is accompanied by a 25.7 kWh, Lithium Ion, 317 Volt Battery which is powering 1 permanent magnet synchronous electric motor.

The BMW XM is not all about power and performance it has a long list of features too!

BMW showered this car with features, you name it, it has that. Being a BMW it has to be driver's oriented but at the same time, it's a chauffeur-driven car as well.

What does BMW XM Design say?

The first thing about his car is that it is a very handsome-looking car with very interesting bold and muscular characters that are coming out seamlessly and giving it an astounding touch. 
With BMW DNA, the aggressiveness and sharpness are clearly making it a head-turner. In my opinion, BMW won't even need to about the power figures of this car because the design and the body lang is doing that job without any hesitation. 

The face of this car is having usual BMW affairs but with new style and charm, accompanied by a bold signature BMW grille which is getting bigger and bigger day by day but this time it got some illumination thing as well. 
Slick headlamps are powerful and know their job very well, sportier lines on the hood give it a mean look and also help its aerodynamics. 
There is a radar for all the ADAS features and a camera for 360 camera view, there is one more camera close to RVM for rain sensing and other features. 

The sportiness is carried beautifully to the side of the car as well, here you can experience the sloping roof and huge window area which makes the cabin pretty airy and jovial. The rear windows are tinted noticeably which might attract cops in India. 

To complete the overall impact on someone's mind you have to end things with the same vibe that you have created at the very beginning, so to maintain that stylish aura the back of this BMW is crafted in that way. Thin tail lights are there with a quad exhaust setup along with diffuser touches. A very interesting thing has been done by BMW at the back of this car and that is the placement of the logo which is not on the usual site and there are two logos on the left-right corner of the rear windscreen which shows gratitude towards the legendary 1970s BMW M1.

Interior 
The cabin of this car is flooded with amenities and BMW blended sporty elements with lavish touches fabulously. 
The rear seats of the XM will allow you to sink into the unparalleled luxury. Seats give you proper support and a relaxed sitting position. With plenty of room and art piece above you, your journey is going to be remarkable. It won't get rear entertainment screen but you get the points to fix a tablet of yours. 
Being this expensive, it won't come with a massage function and ventilated seats function but then you remember that it is a driver's car, not a chauffeur-driven car. 

At the front, you get all the amenities like massage and ventilation. The dashboard is filled with wow factors including BMW's new gigantic screen which works as an instrument cluster as well as an infotainment system.

Ford Mustang Mach E an electric Mustang is a shock for enthusiast.....! We all know Ford Mustang the dream of many, the history in itself, the adrenaline pumper, the swagger, the fashion in its own, the trend former and the emotion, yes, that Mustang became SUV and on top of that to spoiler the name it became electric, seriously.

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
