TG Best of 2014: Bike launches

It's been a roller-coaster of a year, starting all the way with the Auto Expo in its all-new avatar, leading up to some fantastic launches in India across all bike categories. Sure we had some disappointments as well, with the Yamaha R25 not coming to India, and R3 launch pushed to next year. But the incredible launch line-up made sure we didn't hold a grudge.

These are the most popular bike launch stories, as per your views on TopGear.com, in 2014...

Yamaha YZF FZ and FZ-S

Yamaha had been working on a replacement for the ageing FZ, and we knew about it, what with all the test mules being spotted frequently. What arrived was this, the fuel-injected FZ v2.0. Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular naked bikes in India created quite some buzz, and was a popular story on TG.com.


"Yamaha claims that though the v2.0 might have lost a pinch of power, it is faster than the outgoing model. This is thanks Yamaha's new Blue Core technology and tweaks done to the chassis, which help take 3kg off the FZ's weight."
