Yamaha SZ-R: Animalistic ‘High-Speed’ Sensation!

Yamaha SZ-R is strikingly familiar to the eyes in many ways. One equation will answer all your doubts: Yamaha SZ-R = Yamaha R15 + Yamaha FZ! The most striking features that captivate your eyes are the slender animalistic lines and curves that are a breather from the beefy outlines of FZ or R15. But then again the SZ-series from Yamaha has never disappointed anybody! So it’s only obvious that SZ-R is hopelessly impressive! A sure hit among the Speed-mongers! And all out there on waiting for you to grab and speed it away!!

Touted as the “Powerful City Commuting Bike”, Yamaha SZ-R completely seizes the opportunity where the Indian patrons are looking for a performance-based bike but one that’s restricted to the need of commuting purposes alone. A thorough style statement at 150cc, Yamaha SZ-R has the ability to fairly impress you at the first look! Though not as macho as the R15 or FZ in body dynamics, it’s enough nimble to make way easily through the traffic limitations and a yes-yes for those light-weighted highway rides (perhaps, race!). The Yamaha SZ-R boasts of front disc brakes, electric start and an air scoop which differentiates itself from the body colour through a paintjob. The best part being, it comes with pre-fitted alloy wheels as a part of standard package!

With successful forerunners like i10, i20 and i30; Hyundai unveils i40 for the relative upper class! A brilliant amalgamation of Hyundai Sonata and Hyundai Elantra.

Three things are to be raved about it -

-    European Style – conceptualized, designed and styled up at Russelsheim, Germany. The European pedigree is delivered by its chicness and sophistication. Hyundai i40 sports a very nature-inspired design that has a very organic charisma to it! The front to back beaming of fluid dynamics!

-    Spatial Opulence – i40 practically has vast volumes of spaciousness. The interiors are in perfect sync with the exteriors. The interior space is bound to exceed your expectation and the vast and conspicuous storage/ cargo area is something to look forward to. With absolute foldable, amendable seats. Sit. Laze. Sleep. Jump. Anything!

-    High Fuel Efficiency - the gasoline and diesel engines give high-fuel efficiency as compared to the competition. The new and highly fuel efficient Nu 2.0 features an aluminium ladder frame construction for improved durability and reduced noise and vibration. A killer engine.

This one won’t just glide on the road but will sweep you off your feet too! But you will have to wait for this class-defined road-carrier to hit the Indian Markets!
