A Glimpse at the Machines Present at Auto Expo Mysore

There was a small Auto Exhibition being held at Mysore from the 9th January to 12th of January, 2014. One of Team Engine Freak's members was present at the glorious exhibition of mean, wheeled machines. There was a handful of glorious beasts at the exhibition, ready to soak up all the attraction. Here is a photo episode of how the show went, and who all were present there! 

The main attraction in this was obviously the presence of Aprilla RSV4. The Aprilia RSV4 is a super bike manufactured by Aprilia. The RSV4 is Aprilia’s flagship model. Aprilia offers two models of the bike: the RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R.


From now on, we will let the pictures do the talking,

The BMW 650GS is an adventure bike that is powered by a Rotax single-cylinder engine. No terrain is too harsh for this bike, as the graphiti art of Unstoppable suggests!


Hyosung GT250R Limited Edition is an attempt to make the already rare-on-the-streets bike even more exclusive by adding a new decal-cum-paint-scheme, and then push up the price tag.


It is quite difficult to differentiate it from the regular, no-frills edition...isn't it?


And this one is for the admirers of Gixxer! The Suzuki GSX-R1000 is a sport bike from Suzuki's GSX-R series of motorcycles. It is powered by a liquid-cooled 999 cc (61.0 cu ininline four-cylinderfour-stroke engine.


Maverick Italian manufacturer Moto Guzzi was even present at the show. Moto Guzzi is an Italian motorcycle manufacturer and the oldest European manufacturer in continuous motorcycle production. Established in 1921 in Mandello del Lario, Italy, the company is noted for its historic role in Italy's motorcycling manufacture, its prominence worldwide in motorcycle racing, and industry innovations—including the first motorcycle center stand, wind tunnel and eight-cylinder engine.


Aprilla Caponord 1200 is a wicked-looking dual-purpose motorcycle powered by a 1197 cc liquid-cooled, 4-stroke engine that has two cylinders arranged in the longitudinal 90-degree V-Twin configuration. The bike is jam-packed with electronics – Selectable engine mapping (sport, touring, raing) and Ride-by-Wire throttle for smooth, consistent power delivery. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox, operated via a hydraulic clutch.

Aprilla Tuono V4R has been completely redesigned since the year 2012. It was modelled on the lines of the Superbike RSV4. As with that bike, it received Aprilia's APRC (Aprilia Performance Ride Control) package with 8-position traction control, 3 position wheelie control, and 3 position launch control.


The CBR1000RR, also known as the Fireblade, is a 999 cc liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder sport bike that was introduced by Honda in 2004. The Honda CBR1000RR was developed by the same team that was behind the MotoGP series. Many of the new technologies introduced in the Honda CBR600RR, a direct descendant of the RC211V, were used in the new CBR1000RR such as a lengthy swingarm, Unit Pro-Link rear suspension, and Dual Stage Fuel Injection System (DSFI).


KTM RC8 1190 is the flagship bike of the eccentric bike-makers based at Matighofen in Austria. One look at the bike and you realize that it sends conventions for a toss with the drastic cuts and slashes on its body panels, and a twin cylinder engine that defies general notion about vibrations and torque output, among others.


Here are two massive beasts lying side-by-side : the Suzuki Gsxr1000R and the Yamaha R1!!


 And here there is another one that joins alongside the Yamaha R1; it is the Honda Fireblade.


To end our report, we have a challenging-looking scooter that threatens to redefine the limits of the scooter world. Yes, it is the Aprilla SRV 850! It is powered by a two-cylinder 90-degree V-twin water-cooled motor equipped with electronic fuel injection.


We had even more pictures, but this is just the tip of the iceberg! The show was an extremely teeny-weeny version of the Auto Expo that is about to kick off in Delhi next month. Stay tuned to us for a detailed coverage of the Indian Auto Expo 2014!
