Know your car - what is what????

AWD - All Wheel Drive:
An AWD system incorporates a specially designed drive train with a center differential that delivers power to all the four wheels of an automobile. A center differential means that each tyre can rotate at a different speeds.

Air Cooled Engine:
An air-cooled engine is cooled by the passage of air, generally forced around and over the cylinders.

Air Filter:
An air filter is installed to prevent the dust and dirt particles in the air from entering the engine's cylinders. It filters out the grime and sends clean air into the cylinder for the combustion process to take place.

Aluminum Cylinder Block:
It is an engine block cast of aluminum usually with cast iron sleeves installed as cylinder bored. Aluminum helps reduce the weight of the engine and in return makes the car lighter improving its performance.

Yamaha YZF R15 Vs Bajaj Pulsar 220 Vs Apache RTR 160

The Apache is attractive with the screaming racing stripe running along the center. The pulsar is over a year and half old and its presence on Indian road is unmatchable. And the Yamaha YZF R15 with its R15 technological prowess is just cannot be ignored.

The following three blogs below clearly show Yamaha beating the other two boys in all aspects excepting for the price. And if a 150cc can do the job of a 220 cc pulsar why go for pulsar then??? Off course there are so many other things to consider. But yet, Yamaha speaks from its raw experience. And it does matter a lot.

The Yamaha R15 comes equipped with a Deltabox frame and some of the best mechanical bits that is miles ahead that any other motorcycle in the country. The bike is indeed very entertaining. The Yamaha R15 belongs to the racetrack. And so does TVS in the dirt biking arena. I wonder if Bajaj has this background.

So my best pick starting from the best

1) Yamaha R15
2) Apache RTR 160
3) Bajaj Pulsar 220
