The incident took place on September 29 and the couple succumbed to their injuries six days later.

The victims have been identified as Suresh and his wife Shiney. While Suresh worked as an office secretary in Vigyan Bhawan, Shiney was a senior consultant in the Drinking Water and Sanitation Department of the Jal Shakti Ministry. They are survived by their 15 year old son who studies at Don Bosco School.

Their family said on Saturday that the couple moved from Kerala to Delhi over 10 years ago and were living in Sarita Vihar.

Police arrested a 47-year-old woman who was driving the car at the time of the incident, and registered a traffic accident. Articles on negligence and causing death were added later in the case. However, she was released because sections of the FIR were likely to be released on bail.


Police said the incident took place around 10 a.m. on September 29 when Suresh dropped off Shiney in his office near the CGI compound. The two were on a Royal Enfield when a Honda City car crashed into their bike and nearly mowed them. The couple sustained serious head and chest injuries. They were transported to Moolchand Hospital by a passer-by and PCR vans.

During treatment, Suresh died of cardiac arrest and other complications on October 1, and Shiney died of head injuries on October 5.
A senior officer from Lajpat Nagar Police Station said, “The accused woman has been found and arrested. We found that she was not under the influence of alcohol and was driving recklessly. She was incarcerated in the appropriate sections and later released on bail. “

During the investigation, police discovered that the accused was taking a sharp turn when the car accidentally struck the bicycle. The police suspect the woman is speeding.

The couple’s family in Thiruvananthapuram were made aware of the incident and they came to Delhi last week. Their son will now live with Suresh’s sister in Kerala.

Suresh’s cousin Vijay Kumar who also lives in Delhi said: “… Suresh has always helped me. His parents passed away a few years ago and we had no other relatives here. His wife was a hardworking woman. It’s sad that their child is alone. Suresh would usually drop Shiney off at his desk on their bike.

Illegal gratuity paid to the top Yes Bank employees through the prism: ED in court https://bike-pix.com/illegal-gratuity-paid-to-the-top-yes-bank-employees-through-the-prism-ed-in-court/ https://bike-pix.com/illegal-gratuity-paid-to-the-top-yes-bank-employees-through-the-prism-ed-in-court/#respond Sat, 09 Oct 2021 18:18:00 +0000 https://bike-pix.com/illegal-gratuity-paid-to-the-top-yes-bank-employees-through-the-prism-ed-in-court/ The Directorate of Enforcement (ED) has informed a local court that senior employees of, including its former co-founder and MD Rana Kapoor, are under scanner for receiving an alleged illegal gratuity for authorizing a loan to the group Avantha by Gautam Thapar.

The federal agency said so in its indictment indicting Rana Kapoor, Gautam Thapar and 19 other people and entities. A local court learned of ED’s indictment on Saturday and summoned all the defendants.

The indictment, reviewed by ET, states that “Gautam Thapar and Rana Kapoor play a pivotal role in the generation of proceeds of crime, as they knew from the start that the loan was taken on fictitious agreements that were not never supposed to be executed.The duo also knew that the thus generated proceeds of crime had to be channeled from one company in the group to another until they reached the existing lenders, namely Edelweiss and Aditya Birla Group to repay existing loans from APIL and AHL (Avantha group companies) ”.

He adds, “It also happened during an investigation under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) of other senior Yes Bank employees that high salaries and benefits (proportionately very high compared to at the same positions in other banks) were paid to senior Yes Bank employees to quickly evade the responsibilities of their delegation and authority and in return, Rana Kapoor was rewarding them with huge salaries and benefits using the Yes Bank public money. “.

Giving Rana Kapoor further trouble, the agency’s indictment read, “Further, there is no need and no human probability to grant such illegal favors unless Rana Kapoor obtains also illegal gratuity in return and the same is still under investigation. ”

The ED alleged that “Yes Bank’s exposure in the Avantha group was huge and risky and Yes Bank was well aware that additional exposure might not lead to any clawback. Yet the loan was granted to OBPL (a company linked to the Thapar group) which was and should remain a non-income generating company and therefore unable to service the loan “.

In a conversation with Tsang-Chih Chu (Kurachi), the director of Maxxis Tires India, we understand how the Covid crisis has helped Maxxis turn tables into a learning opportunity, what plans and products are in the works. .

When the Covid crisis hit India, it had a huge impact on the auto industry, which was already going through tough times. It also impacted OEM suppliers as vehicle sales declined. When we talk about OEM suppliers, we tend to forget one important part of a vehicle: the tires.

The tire industry is huge. It is aimed at passenger vehicles, two-wheelers, utility vehicles of all sizes and electric vehicles. To better understand the impact of the industry, Express Mobility contacted Tsang-Chih Chu (Kurachi), the director of Maxxis Tires India.

“The covid pandemic has created countless challenges for the automotive industry as well as the tire industry. At Maxxis, we have turned these challenges into opportunities, achieving the highest Original Equipment sales after the pandemic with an average tire sale of over 2.4 lakh, ”said Tsang-Chih Chu. Maxxis Tires had sufficient supply and storage of raw materials to fulfill OEM orders. He added, “As we prepare for the holiday season and the market opens, we are seeing green shoots of recovery.”

Regarding OEMs, the Director said: “We have partnered with Hero MotoCorp, Honda Motorcycles and Scooter India Limited, Yamaha Motor India and Suzuki Motorcycles. We are rapidly expanding our portfolio according to new trends and market demand. Maxxis manufactures two-wheeler tires for the commuter and performance segment, with the current portfolio covering almost 82%. “We plan to increase it by more than 90% this year,” adds Tsang-Chih Chu.

He further adds: “Maxxis plans to launch products in the cruiser / tourist segment. We have launched the M922F tubeless tire for electric two-wheeler models. In addition to this, we are further strengthening our product portfolio and recently introduced the Maxxplore, M116 Rib models in over 15 sizes and the sportbike segment. The tires are available as a replacement alternative for the Bajaj Pulsar (150,160, 180, 200 and 220), TVS Apache (160, 180, 200), Yamaha R15, Yamaha FZ, Honda Hornet and other models.

The manager adds: “In addition, the tire range is covered by an unconditional 5 + 1 year warranty with Maxxis two-wheel tires. This unconditional warranty is a no questions asked offer that applies to all unusable and irreparable tires.

For those who are not familiar, Maxxis sponsors motorsport events in various categories. “Internationally, we sponsor many series and events, fostering the growth of cycling, motorcycle racing, ATV racing and auto racing on and off the tracks,” said Tsang-Chih Chu. Maxxis has also been part of the Dakar Rally since 2013 and in the 42nd edition he became the main sponsor of the Dutch team led by Tim Coronel.

Maxxis has also taken initiatives in India to empower women in the country. Through its “Women in Front” initiative, Maxxis encourages Indian women to experience the freedom to ride and challenge gender stereotypes. Tsang-Chih Chu added, “Through this initiative, we have provided women with relevant safety training and practices that will help them take the front seat and prepare for their own trip without fear or hesitation. “

Speaking about some of the technologies involved in manufacturing tires for the current demand, the manager said, “Maxxis has used the latest technology in its tires. We offer the M922F range, which are low resistance tubeless tires designed specifically for electric two-wheelers. The tires are made of a lightweight rubber compound, which can reduce energy consumption by 5-10%.

“In addition, our Extramaxx tires are made from aramid fiber, the same one used to make bulletproof vests. This leads to better control and minimizes the risk of punctures. It also reduces rolling resistance and improves stability and life.

Commenting on the upcoming projects, Tsang-Chih Chu said, “Various sports bicycle tires with different applications for road and weather conditions will be introduced shortly. We will also be launching products in the cruiser / touring segment. Apart from this, we have put many products in the mode of developing new products for electric vehicles by examining their potential in the coming times, which will help us to capture a 15% market share by 2026. . “

MotoGP, Bradl, Pedrosa and Crutchlow at work for 2022 in Jerez https://bike-pix.com/motogp-bradl-pedrosa-and-crutchlow-at-work-for-2022-in-jerez/ https://bike-pix.com/motogp-bradl-pedrosa-and-crutchlow-at-work-for-2022-in-jerez/#respond Fri, 08 Oct 2021 16:54:00 +0000 https://bike-pix.com/motogp-bradl-pedrosa-and-crutchlow-at-work-for-2022-in-jerez/

MotoGP is inactive for a few weekends, waiting to resume action in Misano. However, the testing work did not stop and Honda, KTM and Yamaha had all descended to Jerez for a private test. It’s the test pilots’ turn to hit the track with Stefan Bradl on the RC213V, Dani Pedrosa on the RC16 and Cal Crutchlow on the M1.

Very little news has filtered out testing, but all three have been working on the bikes for next season. Already during the Misano tests, the manufacturers brought in the 2022 prototypes and development work continues in anticipation of the last tests of the year, scheduled for Jerez on November 18 and 19.

Honda is working hard to fix the issues with his motorcycle, repeatedly pointed out by Marquez himself. At Misano we saw a heavily revised RC213V, both in terms of aerodynamics and chassis and, of course, engine. will also be redesigned. KTM also needs to take a step forward because after last year’s excellent performance the RC16 looks a bit tarnished this season. and the only victory of the year, won by Binder on slick tires in the wet in Austria in a flag-to-flag race, was more a matter of luck and courage than substance.

The Yamaha would appear to be the most competitive bike, given that it leads the championship thanks to Quartararo, but Fabio has repeatedly encouraged the Japanese to work on weak spots. In the case of the M1, it’s the engine, whose power is not up to par with the motorcycle’s rivals.

The test pilots have for the moment finished their work, but to know if they did it successfully it will be necessary to wait for the opinion of the regular pilots.

1 unstoppable share to buy before Dogecoin https://bike-pix.com/1-unstoppable-share-to-buy-before-dogecoin/ https://bike-pix.com/1-unstoppable-share-to-buy-before-dogecoin/#respond Fri, 08 Oct 2021 12:00:00 +0000 https://bike-pix.com/1-unstoppable-share-to-buy-before-dogecoin/

Cryptocurrencies made the investment world talk in 2021, delivering returns that crushed the S&P 500. But some seasoned investors remain puzzled, as even the most popular tokens fail to gain widespread adoption by consumers as payment solutions.

Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) is one of them. Despite a 4,500% gain this year, only 1,700 (mostly obscure) businesses accept the token as a form of payment for goods and services. This number is not growing rapidly either, with only 50 new entities signing up each month. This awareness among investors may be why Dogecoin, which started out as a joke to poke fun at cryptomania, has fallen nearly 70% from its all-time high.

But these challenges haven’t stopped some payment giants from experimenting with cryptocurrencies. Rather than take a look at a crypto that was never meant to do more than just laugh, potential Dogecoin buyers would do well to consider another proven high-growth stock instead.

Square is a consumer finance powerhouse

If you’re looking for a fintech company that constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation, look no further than Square (NYSE: SQ). The company began its journey in the area of ​​payment hardware, where it offered e-readers to physical businesses for credit card transactions. But it has since spread to consumers and is now used by over 40 million people every month, and it doesn’t stop there.

Image source: Getty Images.

Square’s CashApp is a revolutionary all-in-one consumer credit smartphone app. It enables instant peer-to-peer money transfers and users can get a Visa debit card linked to their CashApp account; the card can be used to withdraw cash or make payments in stores.

But CashApp Investing – the brand’s equity and cryptocurrency trading platform – sets it apart from other payment technologies. The aggregation of banking, payments and investments enables the free flow of money between departments, allowing users to make timely decisions about their finances without having to move funds between multiple platforms.

Bitcoin is the key to growth, but that’s not all

One of CashApp’s main growth drivers is Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC). In the recent second quarter, users purchasing the cryptocurrency were responsible for $ 2.7 billion of CashApp’s $ 3.3 billion total revenue. And in the first half of this year, Bitcoin has established itself as the star of Square as a whole.

Square counts each Bitcoin sale as income, although it only takes a small transaction fee equal to around 2%, so the gross margin is very slim in this segment. Despite $ 6.23 billion in Bitcoin revenue in the first half of the year, it only generated $ 129 million in gross profit.

However, Square generated gross profit of $ 2.1 billion in the first half of this year across its business, which is an 85% increase from the first half of 2020. So even though Bitcoin is producing now the majority of the company’s revenue, it doesn’t contribute much to Square’s revenue.

Why Square is a buy before Dogecoin

Square’s business strategy has resonated with investors, and its stock has gained nearly 2,000% over the past five years. The returns have far surpassed its biggest competitor Pay Pal, which is up about 570% over the same period.

When zoomed out to look at the big picture, Square has seen impressive growth and its transition to a profitable business is just as notable.

Square continues to move forward. The company recently announced a $ 29 billion equity acquisition of After payment, the market leader in buy now, pay later. Square intends to integrate the consumer loan service into CashApp to add yet another dimension to its menu of offerings.

The diversity of Square’s business simply seems unattainable for a single crypto token like Dogecoin. So far, the coin has failed to justify its use by consumers and businesses, and therefore remains a mere vehicle for speculation. That’s not to say it can’t scale over time, but a company like Square is light years ahead; Additionally, Square provides investors with some exposure to the cryptocurrency industry through CashApp.

For investors who are considering Dogecoin, or who have bought it at much higher prices, it’s never too late to buy a quality stock like Square. In the long run, you might be glad you did.

The calendar dates for next season’s FIM MotoGP World Championship have been provisionally published by Dorna.

2022 will take place over 21 weekends starting, as always, with the preseason testing and the inaugural weekend of action at the Losail International Circuit in Qatar, Doha, and ending in the traditional final in Valence.

Indonesia will host Round Two, at the new Mandalika Street International Circuit on the island of Lombok, with Argentines Termas de Rio Honda and COTA back in their usual April slots for round three and four.

Portimao, now a fixture on the MotoGP calendar after stepping in as a savior in 2020, will close the April action, while Jerez, Le Mans and Mugello will kick off the European stage as usual, in may.

Finland are once again planning their championship debut, this time starting in mid-July, with Silverstone moving in early rather than late August.

The traditional return of the year-end flyaway, although now as two double heads with a week in between, rather than the last, and painful triple. With Phillip Island holding a somewhat controversial date earlier in October – rather than the requested move in March – that won’t do much to improve the winter conditions encountered on recent visits.

As with the current current situation, all dates and events, as well as the attendance of spectators, are subject to the evolution of the pandemic and the approval of the corresponding governments and authorities.

New Bajaj Pulsar 250cc motorcycles spied together https://bike-pix.com/new-bajaj-pulsar-250cc-motorcycles-spied-together/ https://bike-pix.com/new-bajaj-pulsar-250cc-motorcycles-spied-together/#respond Thu, 07 Oct 2021 03:29:19 +0000 https://bike-pix.com/new-bajaj-pulsar-250cc-motorcycles-spied-together/

New Bajaj Pulsar 250cc motorcycles

The next Pulsar 250cc motorcycle will mainly challenge competing products from Yamaha and Suzuki

The Pulsar range has remained a bestseller for Bajaj Auto for several years. He currently has bikes from 125cc to 220cc. Motorcycles in the Pulsar range are appreciated for their dynamic performance and affordability. As market trends indicate growing interest in the 250cc segment, Bajaj will soon be expanding the Pulsar range to meet this space.

Bajaj already owns Dominar 250 bikes of the same capacity from KTM and Husqvarna. However, given the great popularity of the Pulsar nameplate, it has a better chance of garnering the desired sales figures. For maximum reach, Bajaj is preparing to launch two versions of the Pulsar 250. Their CEO has already announced that the launch will take place next month, in November 2021, when the Pulsar brand also celebrates its 20th anniversary.

It includes bare and semi-faired models of the Pulsar 250. Under the company’s current naming convention, these could be referred to as NS250 and 250F, respectively. However, we will have to wait for official confirmation on this. The latest spy footage is attributed to car enthusiast Narinder Tandon, who spotted these 250cc Pulsar motorcycles on Dehu Road just outside Pune.

Pulsar NS250 and 250F

The NS250 has a sporty profile with an aggressive front fairing. The bike features a single LED spotlight flanked by stylish eye-shaped LED DRLs. The overall styling seems comparable to the 250cc offerings from Yamaha and Suzuki. On the side, the fuel tank is perfectly integrated with the tank fairings. Air intakes on the fairing are also evident which could be a way to improve the aerodynamics of the bike.

Other than the tank fairings, no other form of paneling is visible on the Pulsar NS250. Other key features include the engine protector, split seat design, raised rear section, alloy rims, rear fender, and truncated exhaust. The bike has a fairly comfortable riding position, which makes it suitable for daily commuting.

When it comes to Pulsar 250F, the only major difference is in the fairing. The front fairing is an integrated assembly comprising the headlight cowl, windshield and tank fairings.

This results in a beefier look and feel for the bike. The windshield must be able to offer better protection against the wind. Some panels can be seen on the sides that cover part of the engine assembly. Most of the other features, including the riding position, are largely the same as the NS250.

Pulsar RS250

Although it has yet to be tested, Bajaj is also expected to launch a fully streamlined version of the Pulsar 250cc. Bajaj has done a tremendous job with RS200, the only fully streamlined Pulsar currently on offer. Expect things to get even better with the RS250. The overall styling and fairing should be completely new. Pulsar RS250 will compete with Yamaha Fazer 25 and Suzuki Gixxer SF 250.

The three 250cc Pulsar motorcycles will share the same engine and most other hardware. They are expected to get a brand new 250cc engine. It will be different from the existing unit used with the twin KTM 250 Duke, Dominar 250 and Husqvarna.

The new engine could generate a maximum power of 24 hp and a maximum torque of 20 Nm. It could get new features such as slip clutch and variable valve actuation (VVT). The existing 248.77 cc liquid-cooled engine produces 27 hp and 23.5 Nm.
