After a brief hiatus, India Bike Week is all set to make a big come back this year at a grand scale in Goa on December 6-7, 2019. The sixth edition of Asia’s largest motorcycling festival promises to offer more activities, larger attractions and more exciting motorcycles to drool over. This year, the festival has tied up with Austrian bike maker KTM as one of its title partners and will be showcasing the extremely hot and insane 1290 Super Duke for the first time in India. If reports are to be believed, there will be a surprise this year with the highly anticipated KTM 390 Adventure expected to make its debut at the annual motorcycling congregation. Here’s all that you need to look forward to at the 2019 India Bike Week.
Energy for the X5 xDrive45e’s electric motor is provided by a 24.0kWh lithium-ion battery mounted under the luggage compartment. It offers 14.8kWh more than the 9.2kWh lithium ion battery used by the X5 xDrive40e, and with it a much increased claimed electric range on the WLTP test cycle at between 42 and 54 miles. This contributes to a combined fuel consumption figure of between 148.7 and 235.4mpg on the WLTP cycle, with corresponding CO2 emissions of between 44 and 27g/km.
The BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 – a purist, historically inspired version of the big boxer – was presented by the BMW Group at the Concorso d’Eleganza in the Villa d’Este at Lake Como in the early summer. Six months later, at the world’s biggest motorcycle show – the EICMA in Milan – BMW Motorrad now presents its second sensational concept bike based on a big boxer engine: the BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 /2 (pronounced: “Slash Two”). It is the stylistic opposite of the Concept R 18: a modern, dynamic custom cruiser with a performance appeal that is somewhat rougher round the edges. As such, the BMW Motorrad Concept R 18 /2 demonstrates yet another potential expression of the Heritage concept, providing an impressive example of the flexibility and wide-ranging customisation options offered by this basic architecture. The presentation at the EICMA will take place exclusively by means of films and photographs.
Granted, the video streaming landscape is already fairly crowded, both for content and for products and services in general. The subscription e-commerce market has grown by 100 percent per year for the last five years. But gaining subscribers and holding subscribers are two different propositions. Churn rate is the bane of a subscription service’s existence, especially if customer acquisition costs are high. (See: Apron, Blue.)
Cook said significant manpower was devoted to areas near the Reagan Library through the morning to protect the landmark. Helicopters repeatedly dropped loads of water behind the library amid 60-mph winds, turning the flames into smoke on a ridge 300 feet below. As wind gusts blew strong enough to knock a person off balance, two super-scooper planes dipped down behind the library, unleashing a large volume of water that created its own rainbow.

Before the big comeback, the Bavarians tested waters with the Z9 concept car which debuted at IAA Frankfurt in autumn 1999. The showcar was penned by the then-recently appointed design director Chris Bangle . The Z9 set a complete change of paradigm from the usual BMW styling featured on the models from the ’90s decade. Utterly futuristic and controversial at the same time, the Z9 previewed many of the design and technological novelties that would arrive on production models in the following years. One of them was the new dashboard architecture, in which the central point was the Intuitive Interaction Conception, which was to become the iDrive beginning with the premiere of the E65/E66 7 Series in 2001.
Volvo, which recently introduced its XC 40 electric SUV, also plans to release a plug-in hybrid vehicle for every one of its models by 2025, is also following this strategy.

This is a typical inemuri unten, meaning falling asleep or sleepy driving. Very dangerous but happens most of the time especially for tired truck drivers driving long distances. Happens also to ordinary drivers, both young and old and all genders. That’s the reason why we have parking and rest areas on highways (free). Let’s utilize them and drive safely.
