Flamboyant AdrenoThe two-wheeler market in India is, in general, changing on the fast track. Thesedays, people irrespective of their age, prefer the motorcycle to the scooter. Fuel efficiency and comfortable riding are the main reasons for the shift. 'In Andhra Pradesh the motorcycle segment leapfrogged from a 20% market share in 1996 to 44% in Jan-Sept 2000.' (Times of India, 20 Nov 2000). In tune with the changing scenario all the major motorcycle manufacturers have started launching their latest models in Hyderabad along with the other major cities of India. In December 2000, LML launched its maiden motorcycle models - 'Adreno' and 'Energy' in Hyderabad.

Classic Energy in close upThe LML 'Adreno' has a powerful 4-stroke 8.5 bhp engine with 3 valves in 5 speeds, whereas the classy model 'Energy' has a 8.5 bhp engine in 4 speeds.

When approached Mr. Ajoy Mohanthi, the Regional Manager, LML, he explained the exclusive features of the new bikes. "The 'Adreno' is a smooth and flamboyant model. You can feel the bike buzzing beneath your fingertips as you hit the road. The widest rear tyres make your ride steady and disc brakes provide you more safety. The classy LML 'Energy' is the essence of the beauty and the beat in two wheelers. Super chrome headlights and dials, a hi-rise fuel tank and the widest rare tyres contribute to a classy ride with a 8.5 bhp engine in 4 speeds."

Dream bikesHe further explained, "'Adreno' and 'Energy' both come with the same engine features. But, if you pull the full throttle of the 'Adreno' it will cross 90 kilometres per hour while 'Energy' reaches 85 kilometres in the same time. The extra power of the Adreno can be attributed to its 5-speed gear box. Both bikes have a fuel efficiency of 60 to 65 kmpl depending on the riding conditions. You have an option to fit disc brakes for perfect braking and electric start system for quick ignition if you choose 'Adreno'."

The prices of these bikes are fixed on par with the existing bikes in the section viz. Hero Honda CBZ and Suzuki Fiero. "The two bikes fall Energy filled with classic powerunder premium segment as per our basic policy. But the 'Adreno' has some additional advantages over 'Energy'. With Rs. 50,000 plus price tag Adreno falls under premium class, at the same time Energy, which has same engine features of Adreno costs less than that and fits into the economy class. The ex-showroom prices of the Adreno and Energy are Rs.45,063 and Rs. 44,163 respecively. If you choose Adreno with disc brakes you have to pay Rs. 3,500 extra (Total comes to Rs. 48,563).
