Motor Trivia – In Christopher Nolan’s film Batman, Bruce Wayne drives a Lamborghini Murcielago. In Spanish, Murcielago means, “bat.”
Comment of the day – Being Shenoy – Looks like an Upgraded Aprilia SR in the second pic (black one), although looks lovely. If it comes to India, expect lots of features to be missed as we usually get a downgraded unit compared to the global market. I won’t be surprised if it is priced at 1.2 lakhs given the fact that it is more powerful than FZ and looks a better choice too
