Ducati Panigale V2 Launched In India

26th August 2020
"The all-new Panigale V2 in India at a price of INR 16.99 lakh."

The new supersport from Ducati is aptly called the baby Panigale and takes its design cues from the mental Panigale V4. The Ducati Panigale V2 is the first BS6 compliant motorcycle to be launched by Ducati India and replaces the 959 Panigale in India and the world over.

The Ducati Panigale V2 uses a 955 cc L-Twin super-Quadro motor which makes 155 bhp at 10750 rpm and has a peak torque output of 104 Nm at 9000 rpm. In comparison to the 959 Panigale, the peak power and torque go up by 5 bhp and 2 Nm. Ducati says that more than 70 per cent of the torque is available from 5,500 rpm.

The Panigale V2 now gets an updated 6-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) along with updated Ducati EVO 2 traction control, cornering ABS, standard ABS and of course wheelie control. In addition, there's also engine braking control on offer along with a bi-direction quick-shifter. The motorcycle gets three riding modes, which are Sport, Street and Race. The settings for each riding mode can be adjusted through the new 4.3-inch TFT instrument console.

Braking is handled by Brembo M4.32 monobloc callipers and Brembo master cylinders with twin 320 mm discs on the front wheel. Both ends get a 5-spoke alloy 17-inch alloy wheel. The front wheel is wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II 120/70 ZR17 rubber while the rear wheel is a fatter Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa II 180/60 ZR17 unit.

Hyundai and Canoo to Co-Develop All-Electric Platform for Future Electric Vehicles

13th February 2020
"The companies will jointly develop an all-electric platform based on Canoo’s fully scalable, proprietary skateboard design for upcoming Hyundai and Kia EVs and PBVs."

Hyundai Motor Group and Canoo announced today that Hyundai has engaged Canoo to jointly develop an electric vehicle (EV) platform based on Canoo’s proprietary skateboard design for upcoming Hyundai and Kia models.

As part of the collaboration, Canoo will provide engineering services to help develop a fully scalable, all-electric platform to meet Hyundai and Kia specifications. Hyundai Motor Group expects the platform to help facilitate its commitment to delivering cost-competitive electrified vehicles — ranging from small-sized EVs to Purpose Built Vehicles (PBV) — that meet diverse customer needs.

Canoo, a Los Angeles based company creating EVs for subscription only, offers a skateboard platform that houses the most critical components of the vehicle with a strong emphasis on functional integration, meaning all components fulfill as many functions as possible. This feat of engineering reduces the skateboard size, weight and a total number of parts, which ultimately provides more interior cabin space and a more cost-effective EV offering. In addition, the Canoo skateboard is a self-contained unit that can be paired with any cabin design.

Hyundai Motor Group expects an adaptable all-electric platform using Canoo’s scalable skateboard architecture to allow for a simplified and standardized development process for Hyundai and Kia electrified vehicles, which is expected to help reduce the cost that can be passed along to consumers. Hyundai Motor Group also expects to reduce the complexity of its EV assembly line, allowing for rapid response to changing market demands and customer preferences.

With this collaboration, Hyundai Motor Group doubles down on its recent commitment to invest $87 billion USD over the next five years to foster future growth. As part of this drive, Hyundai plans to invest $52 billion USD in future technologies through 2025, while Kia will invest $25 billion USD in electrification and future mobility technologies, aiming for eco-friendly vehicles to comprise 25% of its total sales by 2025.

Hyundai and Kia both recently announced plans to develop fully electric PBVs. Hyundai presented its first PBV concept as a key pillar of its smart mobility solution strategy at CES 2020 in January. At its CEO Investor Day on January 14, Kia announced its plan to develop PBVs tailored for shared-service companies and logistics companies.

BMW Patents Radical C Evolution New Electric Motorcycle

6th August 2020
"When you want a purer riding experience, without all the car-style safety systems, you can simply leave them at home."

BMW has been down the road of roofed bikes before. The C1 scooter, made for just two years between 2000 and 2002, proved a sales flop despite its claim of offering car-style safety. But 20 years on, the firm is getting ready to dive back into the same arena with a completely rethought version of the “enclosed” concept that—most importantly—can be converted back into a “normal” bike by undoing just a few bolts.

“Normal” is relative, of course. The BMW idea—which has been the basis of an astounding 15 patent applications in the last month alone—is an electric machine that appears to be based on the chassis, batteries, and transmission of the C Evolution scooter. Like the C1, the C Evolution is expensive and slow-selling, but unlike its predecessor it represents a form BMW remains committed to, staking its claim as a serious player in the electric bike field.
It includes features like:


Carbon Safety Cell
Weight is every bike’s enemy, and BMW’s solution for the new design is to use carbon fiber. The roof is made of it, while the chassis is an aluminium platform built around the battery packs. Carbon provides immense strength with a minimal weight.


Crumple Zones
The crumple zones are simply bolted to the bottoms of the roof’s pillars, it should be relatively easy to replace them, and so a crash won’t necessarily mean the bike is instantly written off just because a zone has been destroyed.


Seat Belts
Race-style four-point harnesses hold the rider in position during an accident, but the shoulder straps have road-car-style inertia reels to allow them to move until they’re jolted by an impact. At that stage, pre-tensioners tighten the belts to pull the rider back into the seat.

 

Side Airbags
Airbags set into the side panels expand during an accident, creating a padded section on each side of the rider running from his hips all the way to his shoulders and extending forward as far as his elbows, again keeping his arms inside the safety cell during a crash.


Rear Impact Protection
BMW hasn’t forgotten about rear impacts either. The upright section of the rider’s seat—which is attached to the removable roof rather than the seat base—has a strong cage inside to protect your spine.


Active Aerodynamics
BMW’s solution to that problem is to use active aerodynamics, with four movable winglets to compensate. Connected to a computer-operated stability system, the winglets—two at the front, two at the back—create downforce but also act like an aeroplane’s ailerons.


Removable Roof
All this stuff is impressive technology, but perhaps the cleverest element of all is the fact that BMW has designed it all to be easily removed by undoing just a few bolts.


BMW’s idea appears to be that you can use the protection when you’re commuting, or struggling with bad weather or inattentive drivers and all the other daily trials that motorcyclists face. But when you want a purer riding experience, without all the car-style safety systems, you can simply leave them at home.
It first mooted it with a patent for a removable roof for the C Evolution, filed last year, but the 15 new patent documents show that the concept has evolved significantly since then. Given that BMW already sells electric cars with carbon fiber bodies and chassis, like the i3, it’s conceivable the firm will actually put this into production to further explore the use of the material and electric tech as well as to probe the potential crossover markets between car drivers and motorcyclists.
