Harley Davidson Motorcycle Bikes





A twist of the throttle and the motorcycle smoothly and quietly pulls away from a stop, feeling like something attached to the end of a long, invisible elastic band. The bike accelerates cleanly into traffic, making barely a sound until you really twist the grip, when a high-pitched whine emerges from the electric motor and drivetrain mounted low between your feet as tied to its roots as is H-D, something that's been three years in the making. Harley engineers wanted to get it right, and you can understand why. For many owners, the noise and distinctive vibes of a big V-twin are key aspects of the experience. 






But not entirely. While all electric bikes have some level of futuristic whirr to them, usually thanks to the reduction gearing, the sound in the LiveWire is much louder than most. Mind, even at full-throttle LiveWire is still far quieter than a Fat Bob with straight pipes at idle. It's a piercing, progressive noise that turns heads. For many riders, turning heads is what it's all about.
LiveWire backs up that sound with performance. 74 horsepower may not sound like a lot, but it's more than a Sportster 883 -- and, at about 450 pounds, roughly 100 pounds lighter. That, plus the instant torque of the electric motor, means plenty of oomph, enough to get the front end very loose should you get a bit too aggressive with the throttle.
Still, with no clutch or shifting to worry about, it's very easy to ride. Quite comfortable, too, with an upright riding position and pegs that are neither too far forward nor too far back for casual city touring. That said, one H-D engineer told us there's still plenty of ground clearance to get your knee down hits the track.

Project LiveWire

Unfortunately, with an estimated range of just 53 miles, you probably won't complete many laps. Indeed this is more intended to be a city commuter, enough to get you to work and back, then charging up overnight -- a process that takes about 3.5 hours from empty. 
Persuading the company's loyal followers will be a huge challenge, but perhaps the best part of LiveWire is how it's being launched. Harley-Davidson representatives are taking trucks of the bikes to major dealerships and motorcycle gatherings around the world, giving hundreds of test rides and asking only one thing in exchange: opinions. They really want to know what their faithful think about this thing, and you can be sure they'll take it right back to the drawing board if that's deemed necessary.

But it isn't. LiveWire feels like a great bike that's fun to ride

7 Mistakes To Avoid When Driving A Car With Automatic Transmission

Individuals associated with the automotive industry iterate that the automatic transmission is a great invention. Actually, an automatic car has opened up a whole new world for car owners.
Both professional and novice drivers love to drive a car fitted with automatic transmission. This is because it is straightforward and easy to drive an automatic vehicle than a car fitted with the manual-shift gearbox. Think about the bumper-to-bumper story we have in the cities! However, it is very important to drive a car with automatic transmission carefully because you could end up damaging your car. Some damages, if they happen, cannot be rectified even by expert mechanics. Therefore, it is best that you avoid the following mistakes when driving your automatic vehicle.

You would save a little bit of fuel when you coast down a hill in neutral gear. However, it is very negligible. In modern automatic transmissions, fuel supply to the engine is auto…

The Most awaited Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0

Yamaha has officially unveiled the R15 Version 3.0 in Indonesia. The all-new 2017 R15 is powered by a 155.1cc engine, which develops maximum power of 19.04 Bhp @ 10000 rpm and maximum torque of 14.7 NM @ 8500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, and the key rivals of R15 V3.0 are 2017 Honda CBR150R and Suzuki GSX-R150. As of now, Yamaha has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of R15 V3 in India, it is expected to be here within next 3-4 months .




Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 is expected to be launched in 2017 but as of now there are no official launch dates. So, we will have to wait a bit more before the official statement comes in.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
