0 Honda launches AMAZE Anniversary edition to mark one year of successful sales

Honda India has launched an anniversary special edition of Honda AMAZE in India to mark the first anniversary of this compact sedan. The car had proved loyal to the company's expectations in the initial days of launch itself and had been selling successfully throughout the past year.This special edition AMAZE comes with many cosmetic upgrades like front , side, and rear under-spoiler, trunk spoiler, door visors and exhaust pipe finisher. And to make this special edition stand out of the regular models, it gets a special logo indicating the special package. So all these have made the car look more young and sporty.

Changes don't localize on the exteriors. In the inside, this car gets new upholstery and a premium looking wooden finish panel on the dashboard. However, under the hood ,everything is same as the regular model. This car is powered  by the same 1.2 L i-VTEC engine producing 88 PS of power and 109NM of torque coupled to a 5 speed manual and automatic transmissions. And the diesel model is powered by the same 1.5 L i-DTEC Earth dreams motor as in the outgoing model. This motor produces 100 PS power and 200 Nm torque.and is paired to a 5 speed manual transmission. This diesel model also bears the credit of one of the most fuel efficient sedans in India and the most fuel efficient one in its segment (25.8 kmpl).

The AMAZE was the first Honda to come with a diesel engine. A giant brand like Honda with a diesel engine at such a tempting price !- it was far too appealing for the Indians. Thus it was just another piece of cake for this compact sedan to lure the Indian customers. Thus Honda sold over 80000 units across the sub-continent in the first year of its debut itself.

The Anniversary Edition bears a price tag of

  • VX- 7.08 Lakhs (P)  7.91 Lakhs(D)
  • S- 6.07 Lakhs(P)   7.04 Lakhs(D)
(All prices shown are Ex showroom)

0 Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan 2014 flagged off from Siliguri

Royal Enfield continues the 2014 rides calendar with the third edition of the Royal Enfield Tour of Bhutan. One of the marquee international rides organized by the company for Royal Enfield customers, the Tour of Bhutan is a 7 day motorcycling experience that will take the riders through some of the most scenic and picturesque terrains in the Land of Dragons. This year the Tour of Bhutan was flagged off by Mr. R.K Sachdeva, Regional Manager (West Bengal & North-East), Royal Enfield. 

The Tour of Bhutan is a motorcycling adventure in the Himalayan Kingdom that will traverse through the snow-capped mountain peaks in the eastern Himalayan ranges namely the black mountains and the Shivaliks. This year, 20 riders are journeying through the scenic hilly terrains and winding roads into the dragon’s lair, Bhutan. Riding on Royal Enfield motorcycles, these riders will be cruising through the country roads lined with orchards and rice fields, dotted with tiny villages and bustling marketplaces. Traffic on the roads is minimal but the terrain is challenging enough ensuring that the ride never gets boring. The participants start from Siliguri in West Bengal and ride to Thimpu from Darjeeling through Phuentsolling, Paro, Bumathang, Tashigang and finally return to Guwahati covering a distance of 1,500 kilometers on their Royal Enfield motorcycles. This non-competitive leisure motorcycling ride promises to be an unforgettable experience for the participants.

Speaking on the Tour of Bhutan, Shaji Koshy, Senior Vice-President Sales & Marketing, Royal Enfield said “The Tour of Bhutan is one of the most scenic rides in our tour calendar that promises unique sights and sounds of the Himalayan region. This marquee ride in the eastern region will have great roads and sweeping turns in the midst of picturesque landscapes that will provide a ‘pure motorcycling’ experience to each of our participants”

“The Tour of Bhutan flag off also coincides with Royal Enfield One Ride, a ride that celebrates every Royal Enfield rider, anywhere in the world. One Ride takes place on the first Sunday of every April and on this day we encourage all Royal Enfield owners across the world to ride their motorcycles with their friends and family” added Mr. Koshy. 

More than 100 riders across Darjeeling and Siliguri gathered at Siliguri to celebrate One Ride 2014. Enthusiastic participants travelled from Siliguri to Sevoke along with the Tour of Bhutan contingent.

One Ride 2014 was celebrated by over 3300 Royal Enfield customers and enthusiasts. All Royal Enfield company stores and dealerships across the country and abroad organized rides where customers were invited to ride together.
Royal Enfield regularly organizes rides across the country. The purpose of these rides is to bring together Royal Enfield enthusiasts from across the country and share the experience of riding together. The rides are planned through locations that give our loyalists that extra bit of thrill, excitement and that rejuvenation that comes while riding our motorcycles.

0 Volvo Penta signals commitment to India

Volvo Penta is demonstrating its dedication to the Indian market with the release of two new CPCB Stage II power generation engines, as well as a trip to Bangalore by the company’s president.

Volvo Penta President Björn Ingemanson is making his first visit to India to meet with journalists and other key stakeholders, as well as to herald the release of two new 16-liter Volvo Penta genset units that round out the company’s range of CPCB Stage II (similar to EU Stage IIIA) emissions-compliant engines.

With the new TWD1652GE and TWD1653GE engines, Volvo Penta now offers a CPCB Stage II-compliant range from 250 kVA (the 7-liter TAD754GE) to 600 kVA (TWD1652GE) and 650 KVA (TWD1653GE) on prime power. Durable and robust for optimum uptime, these new engines are also notable for their low fuel consumption and low total cost of ownership. But more than that, the TWD1652GE and TWD1653GE have a high power density, which enables them to compete with much larger engines from other manufacturers. And a smaller engine design often means easier installation for OEMs. The Volvo Penta CPCB Stage II engines have the same installation footprint as the current engine for minimal customer impact.

To coincide with the launch of the new engines, Volvo Penta President Björn Ingemanson will also meet with key OEMs and joint venture partners. Ingemanson will also be accompanied by Giorgio Paris, president of the company’s Emerging Markets and Asia Pacific Region, and Lars Ljungqvist, senior vice president of planning, product development and purchasing. “In the near future, India will be one of our largest and most important industrial engine markets,” Ingemanson said. “By expanding our range of products suited to the Indian market, we are demonstrating our long-term commitment to this market and to our OEM partners. This trip allows us to meet with the local organization to learn more about this important market, as well as to continue discussions about production and further expansion with our joint venture partners.”

Volvo Penta is a global player in the off-road and powergen engine business, with a dealer and aftermarket network spanning 130 countries. As a member of the Volvo Group, Volvo Penta can also take advantage of the experience, research and development, and dealer network of its sister companies, including Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Trucks. Volvo Penta is already active in India with 5 and 8 liter base engine production taking place at the Volvo Eicher joint venture factory in Pithampur for markets with Tier 4 final requirement.
