Hero's first Diesel Bike upcoming in 2019

The Hero RNT is actually unveiled by the Gurgaon based automaker at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi in January and is now expected to be shown in production form later this year. It is a diesel engined motorcycle, the first in its segment, and has been created as a multipurpose vehicle.



In terms of external design, the RNT has been designed with the purpose of utility and this reflects on the outside. The bike has flat loading surfaces with strap bars as well as multi use folding side racks which have all been fitted with the sole purpose of utility. It also gets a small space between the handlebar assembly and the seat, making it a pseudo step-thru, thus combining best of both worlds. Other surprises on the RNT include a detachable LED headlight as well as the fact that the engine can be used as a generator to power external devices.



The RNT is powered by a 150cc diesel that produces 13.5bhp and 35Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheel via a six-speed constant mesh sequential gear…

Check out the all New Honda Amaze at 5.59 lakhs

In the last few years the compact sedan segment has been one of the hottest in the Industry.We have been seeing a number of new launches and the biggies like the Maruti Suzuki andHyundai are constantly updating their cars to be the number one in the segment.



 In April 2013 Honda too jumped in the battle with Amaze and it was the first car from the manufacturer to feature a Diesel motor. Now Honda is quite famous for the refinement of their Petrol engines but
it was never known for the Diesel mills. It was one of the first Diesel engine Honda
manufactured and soon the shortcomings started to show up. It wasn’t refined, there was loads and loads of turbo lag and the engine becomes vocal even when idling. On the contrary the competition like the Maruti Suzuki has some ultra refined Diesel motors.


It is 2018 my friends and Honda had put a lot of effort to make their Diesel motors better. With the 2018 Honda Amaze just launched it was time to take one for a skin.

Rolls-Royce Cullinan First SUV in market

A Rolls-Royce SUV? What? Why do Rolls-Royce even bother to make something that looks likebox, that is ugly? Well the answer lies to this.

The automotive industry of the world is going through a transformation. We have supercars nowthat are also practical, Hypercars that can solely drive on Electricity and SUVs are becoming thenew big in the towns. People are preferring to buy an SUV rather than a Sedan. More and more companies are jumping into the game and trying to have as many of these vehicles in theirportfolio range. Bentley came out with Bentayga in 2016 and later Maserati came up withLevante and Lamborghini with the Urus. Companies such as the Ferrari and Aston Martin who always shied away from the idea of an SUV are also working on making one. This was when the people at Rolls Royce decided to make a car that can ferry uber rich people to any corner of the world in the lap of ultimate luxury. They wanted something that their customers can use for their
skiing trip or fishing o…

The Evolution of Automotive Air Conditioning

Yet for much of the history of the automobile, air conditioning was either a cutting-edge luxury or a sci-fi writer’s dream. The automotive air conditioners of today are the result of a century’s worth of invention and refinement. The only way to keep cool a closed-body automobile prior to 1940 was to raise an adjustable windshield that opened vertically or to remove the side curtains. The opening of the windshield was restricted to about 13mm so that the passenger compartment was sufficiently pressurized while minimizing infiltration of the hot air from the engine. Subsequently, windows could be cranked up and down for the desired airflow. In addition, vents under the dashboard facilitated air circulation. These ventilation systems were rudimentary, as they did not filter dirt, dust, pollen or insects from the air. Thus, the quality of the air circulating through the passenger compartment was poor. The development of the automotive air conditioner began in earnest in 1930 when General …
