Two-wheel­ers take cen­tre stage

Auto Today - - Dashboard -

If you are a fan of all things twowheeled, then In­ter­mot is one fair which you must be wait­ing for. Atleast we do! So this year, the show was all about more tech laden bikes. Each and ev­ery man­u­fac­turer came in with more tech­nol­ogy and it seemed as if TFT LCD screens and LED light­ing tech­nol­ogy has be­come the most com­mon ad­di­tion to mo­tor­cy­cles. Thanks to their in­fin­itely tun­able pro­grams, TFT screens are find­ing space on high per­for­mance mo­tor­cy­cles as well as cheap and cheer­ful elec­tric scoot­ers. LED tech­nol­ogy has also come of age and thanks to them ab­sorb­ing less power, elec­tric ve­hi­cles are mov­ing to­wards it rapidly.

If we had to se­lect one bike from the show which blew us apart, it had to be the Suzuki Katana. The bike fea­tures ravishing good looks and most im­por­tantly, it fea­tures an un­mis­tak­able Katana de­sign. As men­tioned above, most tweaks come i n form of mod­ern equip­ment and i nspite of look­ing like the old one, it is far more aero­dy­namic. Can’t wait to get astride this litre class mon­ster! Speak­ing of mon­sters, Kawasaki has brought in more pow­er­ful ver­sions of the H2. But Kawasaki in all hon­esty also took care of the other end of the spec­trum by re-en­ter­ing the 125cc band­wagon with the fully-faired Ninja 125 and naked Z125. Last but not the least, there were a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties hap­pen­ing on the side­lines. Start­ing from stunt shows to cre­at­ing mas­ter­pieces of art. From cus­tom hel­mets to cus­tom bi­cy­cles, the 2018 edi­tion of In­ter­mot had all.
