Two-wheelers at Auto Expo 2020: new Vespa scooter, Suzuki Hayabusa, and more

The Auto Expo 2020, which will be held next week in Greater Noida, will largely focus on four-wheelers. Indeed, most two-wheeler manufacturers, including leaders like Hero MotoCorp and Bajaj, have decided to skip the 15th edition of Asia’s biggest auto show for two reasons. First, participating in Auto Expo is a costly affair and few two-wheeler companies are willing to make this investment when slowing sales in the industry have affected their balance sheets. In addition to this, two-wheeler manufacturers are also busy upgrading their range to comply with the impending BS 6 emission standards. As a result, we only have Suzuki Motorcycle India and Piaggio coming to the next Greater Noida Auto Expo 2020. And here is what these brands could bring to the show.

1. New Vespa scooter

Vespa, a subsidiary of Piaggio, is expected to present a brand new scooter at the auto show next month. According to media reports, it is expected to be an India-specific scooter and will most likely join the Indian Vespa lineup as the most affordable product. While there are no details on this upcoming Vespa scooter, it can be assumed that it will sport a retro style and not be as feature rich as its rivals.

2. New Suzuki Hayabusa

It may be the only big bike that we believe will come to Greater Noida Expo 2020. Launched last year, the new Hayabusa undergoes minimal styling changes and is mechanically identical to the previous model. However, in its new iteration, the bike benefits from dual channel ABS and two new color options.

3. Suzuki BS 6 range

Along with the new Hayabusa, Suzuki is also expected to showcase its BS 6 product line. So far, the only Suzuki BS 6 two-wheeler is the Access 125, which launched earlier this month. However, we believe the company will bring BS 6 motorcycles, likely the Gixxer 155 series, to its pavilion at the Delhi auto show next month.

4. Aprilia RS 660

The Aprilia RS 660 is a fully faired motorcycle that was unveiled at EICMA 2019. It is powered by a 660cc parallel V-twin engine and has 99 horsepower. And while not launching anytime soon in India, bringing this sports bike to the show will certainly attract a lot of people to Aprilia’s booth.

5. Aprilia RS 150

The Aprilia RS 150 is a fully faired 150cc motorcycle that was presented by the company at Auto Expo 2018, albeit as a prototype. This time around, we believe the Italian marque will showcase its production model at Expo 2020. The RS 150 takes inspiration from the Aprilia RSV4 superbike and gets top-notch hardware like inverted forks and disc brakes at both ends. . When launched in India, the bike will lock horns with Yamaha YZF R15 V3.0.

Kaley Cuoco may have complained about looking “too Midwestern” while playing Penny in “The Big Bang Theory,” but the actress is in Europe right now. Kaley is filming her new TV show “The Flight Attendant” and she keeps Instagram up to date.

FYI, if you need a glimpse of Kaley’s experiences so far in Italy, they’ve been hilarious.

Seriously. Kaley lost her mind this week after her hotel told her to use the “coffee machine” in her room – the 34-year-old woman eventually found out that the “coffee machine” was nothing more than ‘an electric kettle with instant coffee sachets.

Kaley was not happy. She is now.

Kaley updated her Instagram just in time for the weekend. She posted an eye-catching yet relaxed photo of herself lying on a forest green Vespa scooter. A picturesque backdrop of cobblestones and buildings counterbalances the blue sky of Rome.

The star might have been bundled up, but she was still gorgeous. Kaley had opted for a comfortable, earthy-toned coat, also wearing a chunky scarf and dark pants. Of course, accessories suitable for scooters had been put on, with the actress wearing a white helmet.

A legend took the route of the joke.

“This is who I am now. ?? I am that person who drives a Vespa through Rome. Or at least gets shot at a giant platform, pretending to drive a Vespa through Rome. While I was in Rome.

It didn’t take long for Kaley’s update to garner a ton of comments – and likes. The star’s post managed to register over 25,000 likes in 40 minutes.

“Ha !! Incredible!” was a comment.

“It’s so crazy !!” another fan wrote.

Kaley will still garner remarks referring to her 10-season stretch on the popular sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”. A comment came up mentioning another of the characters in the show, Howard Wolowitz.

“Howard would be jealous,” the fan wrote.

“Howard would be so proud” was yet another reference.

“The Flight Attendant” is still in filming mode, so you’ll have to wait a bit before it appears on screens. Here is what we know.

The HBO Max series will tell the story of Cassandra Bowen who wakes up in a hotel room in Dubai with a giant hangover – and a corpse next to her. She’s too scared to call the cops, so she joins her teammates to find the FBI waiting for her. And they have questions.

Kaley is both the star and the producer of the series.

For “BBT” fans, saying goodbye to street-smart Penny was the end of an era. It was certainly for Kaley, who spoke to She Knows, cooking up what she will miss the most.

“You know, she’s iconic. He’s the best character I’ve ever played. She has all the qualities. She is funny she is [silly and] I’m calm, she’s sarcastic. She loves Leonard and she loves these guys and she’s a real girl. You know, we’ve covered a lot of issues this year. She didn’t even want to have children and she wanted to be a business woman. I don’t think we’ve seen this much on TV, ”Kaley said.

“I was really impressed that they went this route and yes that is the reason why everything I do in the future will be sent back to Big Bang,” she added.

Lime Ends Dockless Scooter and Bike Services in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Lime is releasing its dockless scooters and bikes from San Diego, a month after a hearing officer ruled the company could keep its license to operate.

Lime announced Thursday that they will not be renewing their operating license in San Diego but will be monitoring the opportunity to return in the future.

“As part of our path to profitability, Lime has made the difficult decision to leave San Diego and focus our resources on markets that allow us to meet our ambitious goals for 2020,” said a statement from Lime. “We are grateful to our team members, riders, Juicers and the communities who have supported us throughout this journey. We appreciate the partnership we have enjoyed with San Diego and remain hopeful that we can reintroduce Lime to the community when the time is right. “

The company said it tried to work with city officials on compliance and safety issues, but was instead forced to defend its license, which it did successfully. Lime added that the city’s most recent regulations have resulted in a decrease in ridership and the city has not been transparent about towing by city-contracted and private towing companies.

In December, city council leaders voted to ban electric scooters from city rides at Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, Mission Bay Park Bayside Walk and La Jolla Shores.

A month earlier, city leaders had passed new regulations for electric scooters and bicycles, including lowering the speed limit from 15 to 8 miles per hour on boardwalks, a ban on parking vehicles. scooters in some areas and permit fees.

Lime said it was also shutting down operations in Atlanta, Phoenix and San Antonio as part of its “path to profitability.”

In September 2019, Uber also launched the call to remove its dockless scooters and bikes from San Diego. The company said at the time that “we agree with local San Diego officials who said current micromobility regulations promote an unsustainable operating environment.”

Data released in October 2019 showed that 222,076 people drove the vehicles without a dock during the two-week period ending October 15, compared to 441,830 from July 15 to July 30.

Dockless scooter, bike pilot program coming to Loudoun Co. – but only a small part

Shared mobility devices will be tested in Loudoun County, but only in a small part of the county, near future metro stations.

The Loudoun County, Va., Shared Mobility Device Pilot Program will limit the ability to rent and drop off a scooter, motorized skateboard, e-bike, and bicycle to areas immediately around Silver Line metro stations in the eastern part of the county.

The county will limit the number of shared mobility devices for rent to a maximum of 1,000 devices and will limit their operation to a service area approximately 3 miles from Ashburn, Loudoun Gateway and Dulles International Airport Silver Line Metrorail stations.

“The county is committed to providing transportation choices that connect people to their communities, employment centers, educational institutions, activity centers and other amenities,” said Joe Kroboth, director of the Department of Transportation and county infrastructure, which oversees the pilot program. .

Mobility devices without a docking station allow customers to avoid having to drop them off at a specific location. The convenience is applauded by many looking for an inexpensive way to walk a few miles, disparaged by those who say devices left on sidewalks pose safety risks and are unsightly.

Loudoun is the third largest county in Virginia, at 521 square miles, stretching to the border of West Virginia.

With the 3 mile limit imposed in the pilot program, scooters will not be available in historic Leesburg, or the One Loudoun development, including residences, restaurants and entertainment, as well as communities such as South Riding. , Stone Ridge and developments in the western, more rural parts of the county.

The county is currently looking for SMD operators to supply the devices.

The pilot program will run for at least six months after the Silver Line stations open, scheduled for mid-2020.

Scooter convoy marks funeral for Sherwood’s popular father and Mod

A convoy of scooter riders celebrated the funeral of a popular father, grandfather and Mod Sherwood in Quadrophenia style.

The grandfather of five, Danny Pugh, died on December 13 at the age of 58 after battling heart disease for seven years.

He worked as a porter before becoming a DJ.

Mr. Pugh owned two scooters and was passionate about Northern Soul and Motown classics, as well as Mod The Who staples.

To honor her father, her 32-year-old daughter Dee Bonsoir rallied around for people with Mod-style scooters to come forward and help lead the funeral procession.

After posting a pre-funeral appeal on Facebook, she was amazed at the reaction from Mods across the country as around 30 riders showed up on Vespas and Lambrettas to provide the colorful procession as friends and family said moving farewells.

The funeral took place on Monday January 6 and scooters escorted Mr Pugh’s casket from his home in Sheridan Way to the Wilford Hill Crematorium.

Ms Bonsoir, a community caregiver from Brinsley, said: “I had so many answers to the call, it was amazing.

“To have this farewell is unreal, he would love it, (it) means so much to us.

“Dad grew up loving mods. He always owned a scooter and rode with scooter clubs. He loved records from the 60s and 70s, Northern Soul and Motown.

“He had a few parkas, fox tails for his scooters and he had a room dedicated to the 60s and 70s.

“He loved The Who and Quadrophenia.

“Before his heart disease got worse, he was pretty straightforward, with a great sense of humor – sometimes inappropriate.

Danny Pugh, a former doorman, DJ and Mod fan.

“Dad was a porter for many years at various locations in Nottingham and Arnold, then DJ at the Carrington Inn.”

She added, “Seven years ago she was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy.

“He went from a bubbly, lovable, party-loving person to a shadow of himself.

“He would be bedridden for days at a time. He became short of breath. He lost his sense of humor. He was quite depressed.

Danny Pugh's funeral was held at Wilford Hill Cemetery.

“For the past five months he was texting us to tell us how much he loved us. He certainly knew what was going on.

“I feel like he hung on until I found someone decent. I’m with a really nice guy now.

“I felt like as soon as Dad found out I was taken care of he was able to leave.”

Mr Pugh was the father of Dee and brother Ben Bonsoir, 31, as well as younger sons Jack, 11, and Jake, four, whom he had with his partner, 18, Rachel Coupland.

He also has five grandchildren aged 15, seven, three, two and one.

Mr Pugh’s heart stopped on December 8 and, although he was resuscitated by paramedics, he was placed in a induced coma at Nottingham City Hospital in the intensive care unit.

On December 13, his family was told that he was showing no response and was suffering from multiple organ failure, so the decision was made to “let him go.”
