Indonesia and India cut the the price of the Inazuma 250
Jul 17, 2014 - 1:53 PM - by Hunter090

Suzuki has lowered the price of the Inazuma 250 in both India and Indonesia, and the story behind it is a little interesting. In India the Inazuma was first priced at an ambitious Rs 3.61 lakh. Suzuki received dealer responses that people were interested in the Inazuma, but walked out upon hearing the price. Suzuki lowered the price by Rs 1 lakh in order to help battle this problem.

In Indonesia a similar situation just happened. The Inazuma 250's price was cut by 10 million Rupiah from its original price. Just like in India, "customers in Indonesia too found the Inazuma to be overpriced because despite being powered by a 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine that displaces 248cc, the maximum power output comes in only at 26 hp while the peak torque comes in at 24.4 Nm." It's a pretty average bike, and it's styling is also slightly dated. People were still interested, but it was the price that was the deal breaker. There is also a 60% luxury tax on bikes above 250cc in Indonesia so it is pricey from the start.

It seems that the arrival of the Yamaha R25 is also a factor in Inazuma sales. It has outright better performance when compared to the Inazuma 250. It gets 36 hp and 22.1 Nm of torque. Bringing the price of the Inazuma down allowed the Inazuma to compete better with the Yamaha R25, but at the end of the day, Suzuki is probably due to come out with a more up to date model.

Just to let you guys know, if you bought the Inazuma for the more expensive price, dealers will refund you the extra money you spent on it, but there were only three people who bought the Inazuma at its original price.

Summer Pants/Warm Weather Pants
May 30, 2014 - 12:02 PM - by Group B

Riding in the summer for those of us in Northern climates can be a dream but it can also be a PITA, likewise if you live in scorching temperatures year round, say Arizona or Texas or New Mexico. We all know the internal battle, sweaty crotch rot or breezy and risky. Well perhaps we don't need to make that choice any longer!

Mesh Pants:

Comfy and relatively cool, ride in nothing but your undies underneath if you please. The largest drawback is they are only fashionable when riding a motorcycle, so for anything other than a twisty run they make little sense as a versatile piece of gear. I'm sure you've seen those guys walking around in the meshies, you can always change, but not in public.

Motorcylce Jeans:

Go with any of the favourites depending on preferences of style and most importantly fit. Deth Killers, ICON, Draggin jeans are the notables. Denim still does get plenty hot itself especially when infused with Kevlar and even so the protection is still only a fraction of what you get from armoured over pants or mesh.

Over Pants:

Built much the same as mesh pants but designed as a top layer instead. These breathe even better than straight mesh pants, however they do offer slightly less protection. The biggest draw of overpants is that one you've gotten to where you were going, you can just zip them off and away you go. Fairly convenient for the commuters.

So, which do you choose for your warm weather rides?
