This May, we savour an incredible trackday astride the BMW S1000RR at the Estoril racetrack in Portugal. Three generations and multiple Bike of the Year titles later, the BMW S 1000 RR receives a complete overhaul for its fourth generation. Find out what’s new on the S1000 RR in the May 2019 issue of Fast Bikes India magazine!
Next, we ride the newest iteration of the CBR 650 that’s now shed its F suffix for an R, and undergone a badass makeover in the process. Talking about crazy, we also get astride the KTM 690 SMC R to get a first-hand look at the hoonery that’s brewing in Mattighofen…
Lastly, we get a glimpse into the ultimate mountain ride, when ten Royal Enfield riders brave the altitude and the elements and even the limits of human endurance with our own Vijay Parmar curating the Whiteout 2.0!

Fast Bikes India – May 2019 – Contents
BMW S 1000 RR
The BMW S 1000 RR is back sans the assymmetrical headlights that we had grown to love. However, what is loses in visual quirkyness, it more than makes up for with some rip-roaring techno-wizardry!
Honda CBR 650R
We sample the newly-launched Honda CBR 650R in Spain. Is the baby blade miles ahead of its predecessor, the CBR 650F? Find out!
On a quest to find the best bike for you and your moolah, we bring in the Bajaj Dominar 400 UG, the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.0, the KTM 250 Duke and the Royal Enfield Himalayan for a group test like no other!
KTM 690 SMC R
The chances of the hooligan-friendly KTM 690 SMC R making it to India are slim, but in the off chance you get your hands on one, it’ll sure be worth the hoonery!
Counting the Revs
The Ducati Panigale V4 R revs to a maddening 16,500rpm. But wait! That’s not the only bike that revs to the sky. We take a look at some other incredibly high-revving motorcycles over the years.
Triumph Street Twin
The best-selling neo-retro loses weight, gets KYB forks and packs in a lot more tech. Has Triumph made it even better? We get astride and get you the verdict!
Kawasaki Versys 1000 vs Ducati Multistrada 950
The Kawasaki is the new kid on the block and packs in impressive specs and performance. Can it keep up with the Ducati Multistrada 950?
Spotting Snow Leopards
Whiteout 2.0 : An insane idea that turned into reality. Riding through Spiti in sub-zero temperatures! Vijay Parmar, mountain man himself, tells us the tale!
… and so Much More in the May 2019 issue of Fast Bikes India magazine!
We also have a go in the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials replica, test ride the Giant Halfway foldable cycle, fun tutorials to make you a smarter biker, the latest gear and trends, all the happenings in the biking community, columns by Vijay Parmar, and Sirish Chandran among others.
