The May 2014 issue of OVERDRIVE has hit the stands and we have a slew of automotive stories that will keep you engrossed and abreast of all the major automotive happenings in the past month.
On the cover we have the full story on Harley Davidsonâ€™s new and affordable motorcycle, the Street 750. The Street isnâ€™t big news just because of its Rs 4.1lakh ex-showroom price but also because it happens to be the first Harley to be produced outside of USA. We also have a technical piece on the all new Revolution X engine and an interesting interview with Anoop Prakash, MD Harley Davidson India on the story behind the Street 750 and the road that lies ahead.
This moth we have a trio of comparos. First, the new Hyundai Xcent takes on the Dzire and Amaze. We then pit the brand new Datsun Go against more expensive rivals like the Hyundai i10 and the Maruti WagonR and it puts up a surprising fight. Finally, we compare the new AMT gearbox in the Maruti Celerio against more conventional automatic transmissions in the Honda Brio AT and the Nissan Micra CVT.
Bike enthusiasts can drool over the latest JC Moto custom bike weâ€™ve got our hands on â€“ a mean and minimalist RD350. Those of you who like things a lot slower and enjoy eking that last bit of mileage out of their motorcycles will enjoy reading about the Start Stop technology in the new Hero Splendor iSmart.
As always we have a plenty of exotic metal in this issue. We drive the new Bentley Continental GT V8 S on some fantastic roads in Oman. We also get our hands on the behemoth that is the Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG.Â Closer home the boys make a 1000km road trip in the ballistic Audi RS7 to meet the king of exotics â€“ the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster.
