Vengeance is a sweet thing they said, so we’ve gone for everything V4 with a vengeance in this issue of Fast Bikes India, headlining it with the awesome new Ducati Panigale V4 of course. But we didn’t brake right there, instead we headed for a late apex with two special features, one on Panigales past and another on the whys and wherefores of the V4 format before hanging a right into Morocco to sample Triumph’s updated Tiger 800. Thereon we swept into America and got astride yet another spinoff of the Bonneville platform in the form of the newly launched Speedmaster. Back on home turf, we went to Hosur to see if the TVS NTorq 125 is any good, and plenty more.
