    Hero Moto Corp has become a Joke.. Karizma ZMR and Splendor with new colours look horrible.. Hunk is also not really cool..

    Bajaj Disappoints!! How much longer will you take to bring in the Duke n Pulsar

    Yamaha R15 White looks awesome.. But No R6 :-(

    Honda Steals the Show.. CBR150 will give really tough competition to the Undisputed King of 150cc bikes Yamaha R15

    Smile Tbts 500

    Hey Guys!

    I have missed the expo due to work, I so wanted to be there for the launch of TBTS 500.

    Do we have any knowledge when is the RE starting its production? Any idea on its price, wait period etc. ?

    Please let me know. I have already talked to my RE dealer in Pune, he doesn't have any idea.

    Here are the highlights of the day in which I was there:

    Meetup with John A:



    Meetup with Rannvijay:



    Meetup with Siddharth Lal and the concept Cafe Racer which could hit the stores in 2013



    Ahhhh! The Merc SLS 63 AMG, cant believe that i actually had done 1000kms in this super-car!



    The matrix camera setup at the Chevy stall:



    Saw this beautiful car at the Hyundai stall, i wonder why cars like these die as concepts when they are perfectly road worthy:



    The Triumph Stall:

    Some fantastic news: Triumph announces the street triple for 5.75 and Daytona 675 for 7 lacs, triumph storm for 17l, speed triple 8 lacs, bonneville 5.5 and tiger 11.4 lacs.




    Tata Nano Pixel, just loved this car, looked right our of, well, a video game:




    Hail India Power, and this is one of the best colors that I have ever seen on a performance car (Jaguar):



    Just loved the Mercedes stall, this one especially was FANTASTIC:



    The Honda CBR150R for India:




    Nothing new from Yamaha, but I actually liked the looks of this scooter. I would not see any reason why they should change this concept before a launch:




    The Bajaj RE, if you come to think of it, it actually makes a HELL LOTOF SENSE to focus entirely on this. Imagine an auto rickshaw being replaced by this yet retaining its small footprint and frugal fuelature:



    This RE was Beautiful:



    These brands are right in front of the xBhp Stall!



    But here are the real superstars at the xBhp Stall (Himanshu, Vijender, Old Fox, Prakhar, MG, Roger, Sunil and Shivanshu):

    a few observations/questions -
    • some of the images are shaky.
    • what was the purpose of matrix camera setup at chevy stall.
    • i am planning to buy a nano, so asking, is there any chance of nano pixel launching in india, if yes at what price. any news of nano diesel. sorry for asking about cars.
    • when will CBR 150 be available for sale, price? power?performance?


    one more thing, while sunny was busy checking the vehicles being showcased in auto expo, mr. sunilg seems to have a different agenda in mind...checking out girls

    btw, aprilla had the best girl out there , it seems.

    Just outside the hall where our stall is, suddenly there was a state of commotion. A big crowd had gathered there. On inquiring, I came to know that none other than superstar of the millenium Mr. Amitabh Bacchan has come to unveil a new car by DC. And I was not going to miss that golden opportunity to see my most favorite film star right in front of me, so I joined the group of strugglers who were trying hard to get a glimpse of Mr. Bacchan. There were just too many people; some had even climbed up on the trees to see him.

    I managed to get inside the press area but even there the situation was equally bad. People in the front rows stood up on their chairs to get a clear view of Mr. Bacchan and had blocked the entire view.

    I was getting the glimpse of his face for milliseconds and was trying hard to capture him in my camera. Finally, just for a few seconds, a gap opened up between the 2 guys who were standing ahead of me and I could see his face clearly. I immediately pointed my camera towards that gap and clicked 1 shot.

    On previewing that shot, i was a bit disappointed as i was too far behind and Mr. Bacchan's face occupied just a tiny space on the frame.

    But when i was downloaded that photo on my laptop, I almost jumped out of joy. The focus was bang on, the bokeh was fantastic, and I got what I would definitely remember as one of the best photos that I've clicked.

    All thanks to Canon 5D Mark II and the amazing 70-200 f2.8 L lens

    Here is the result:

    First the original, uncropped pic
