Posted: 06 Dec 2010 06:31 AM PST

With the entrance of the Yamaha FZ-16 and Yamaha R-15, the India two-wheeler market scenario has been transformed and taken to another and certainly a much better level. Earlier where it was only a dream for bikers to buy a stripped down version of a performance bike, now has been drastically changed.

For the Indian market the most important thing to keep in mind is the price tag and one can only offer performance bikes at affordable prices by stripping down some of their features. The trend was brought by Yamaha and is being followed by a number of brands like Kawasaki, Honda, Suzuki and now KTM.

A few days back KTM had confirmed of launching its new KTM Duke 125CC in India which is now being joined by another word coming from the company's headquarters in Mattighofen in Austria. The company is planning to launch another 200CC version of the same in European and Indian market.

Toyota MPV Based On Toyota Etios – Toyota Avanza ?

Posted: 05 Dec 2010 11:30 PM PST

Toyota is getting loads of media coverage because of its much anticipated and awaited Toyota Etios which is already making it big in the market. But what is more interesting about the company is that it is working on a new MPV which would be an addition to the segment comprising of Toyota Innova and other mpvs.

The car will fall into the MPV segment but will be positioned in between the Etios and Innova. Since the happening of 2010 Auto Expo there were no such news about new launch other than the Etios, but recently at the launch of the same Toyota Motor Asia Pacific Senior Vice President (Area Operations Division) Vonce S Socco said, "There is room for another MPV model between Etios and Innova. The company is seriously considering it and conducting a study"


Although he did not disclose the time of its launch but if happens, then is likely to take place by 2011 end or early 2012. Rumors were their that the car will be Toyota Avanza which is also based on the IMV platform alike Toyota Innova but now it is being said that it will be based on the Etios platform.

For the time being the Etios is really drawing a lot of attention and the Toyota Etios Liva, due for April 2011 will certainly contribute a lot to this and for the new plans we wish the brand luck.
