Sonam Kapoor Promoting Motorcycle Safety

Recently read somewhere in paper that Delhi police got Sonam Kapoor to promote two wheeler safety, especially wearing helmet issue. Sounds a good idea but I was laughing the moment I saw this below photo.

What is that thing on her head! At least she could have gone for a flip up helmet.
This is not exactly how an average Indian dresses up to ride everyday to work or other places. And heels! you got to be joking.

Motorcycle Safety: You may think you will always be careful while riding but there is some idiot out there who is gonna come and dash into you. Its best to spend now and get a decent helmet than spending on your hospital bill or on your grave. Women riders get yourselves a ‘face mask’ and ‘a cover for the arms’ to protect skin and hair.

If not shoes then at least a decent footwear that covers the feet 70%… is a start.

Duke 200 Engine in Hero MotoCorp Impulse

Recently I had a thought that what if Hero MotoCorp would’ve brought the Impulse out with the Karizma engine. Since the bike is meant to be a trans-roader then it should have some power to be in par with the identity. Too bad that the 150cc engine is not enough to satisfy the intermediate rider.

While some people have managed to put a Karizma engine in Impulse with slight modification, I was wondering what if the Hero Impulse comes out with a Duke 200 engine.

  Both the bikes weight more or less the same and the punch Duke 200 delivers, I have not seen on any other bike. It could be the perfect machine for touring, stunting and offroading.

Hero MotoCorp, rise from the cryo-sleep and do something satisfying for your loyal customers. Already enough bikes are there for the commuter. We need more choice in sports, premium and offroading segment.
