Eshwar Prasad, Founder and Editor Motorcruze.com

Motorcruze is an Auto news portal covering the latest news in the automotive sector. We cover the latest car and bike news, car and bike reviews from the Indian Auto Industry, and all the happenings in the automotive sector across the globe. Since I was passionate about automobiles I started Motorcruze.com on June 13th 2014.

My Story: Hi, this is Eshwar Prasad and some of you may have already read the articles published by me on the website. I started Motorcruze out of pure passion for cars and bikes.

Since childhood I was wanting to do something related to automobiles and since writing was my passion I decided to start blogging and that`s how the idea of starting an automobile portal originated. The first time I rode a bike, was when I was in the eighth standard. It was a Kinetic spark and I rode it in my house compound. This was my dad`s first bike. I was not allowed to drive the moped on the road as I was underage and did not have a license. After the Kinetic met with a minor accident dad decided to get a new vehicle. It was a Bajaj Chetak, the legendary scooter which was a house name back then. We had the Chetak for a few years and then it was sold and replaced by an LML Vespa. The Vespa was more stylish than the chetak to look at, it’s my personal opinion. Once I got my license I was allowed to drive the LML Vespa by my family, but under one condition that I would not cross the 50 Km/hr speed limit.

As the demand for bikes started picking up in India, I requested my dad for a bike as I was now going to college and knew my responsibilities. Dad promised to buy me a bike if I got a distinction in my graduation. Well, I never got the distinction, but my Dad still kept his promise and lo and behold there was a new Hero Honda splendour staring right at me. The Spendour was with me for a couple of years and since I started working I had enough money to purchase something which was more powerful. I bought a second hand Yamaha RX 100 and boy I loved this bike. I got a rajdoot muffler fitted to the exhaust and the sound emanating from the silencer was exhilarating enough. I`m sure all Yamaha Rx 100 lovers will vouch for this.

Once I moved to Delhi for my job after graduation, I had to sell my Bike and now I own a Ford Fiesta. The fiesta has been with me for the last 8 years and it continues to serve me well. Among bikes I love the Yamaha Rx 100, Bajaj Pulsar, Honda CBR 250 and Triumph street triple to name a few. I plan to buy a speed triple in the future and I know it will not be happening anytime soon. Apart from automobiles I love writing and plan to publish a fiction novel in the future. I would like to take this opportunity to inform everyone who have been patient enough to read this article: “Ride safe, be responsible and don’t forget to wear your helmets and seat belts whenever you hit the road”.

    Owner complaints regarding Ciaz diesel SHVS vehicle (avg. on road price: rs 10 lakhs):
    1) irritating rattle/vibration in cabin, 2) low mileage — less than half of the indicated 29 Kmpl, 3) size mismatch – wheels and stepney (16″ alloy wheels and 15″ steel rimmed stepney), 4) clutch cylinder beading problem, 5) poor suspension, 6) fan belt problem/fan belt adjuster problem, 7) poor quality music system, 8) low quality of interior plastic, 9) unavailability of spares with service centres — resulting in delay in repairs of the ‘under warranty’ vehicle
    Mind you, we’re not talking about a rs 2 lakh Maruti 800 here.
    Maruti is planning a facelift for the Ciaz. This ’upgraded’ car will be sold and serviced at the Nexa outlets. That’s Maruti’s solution to the complaints of pathetic customer service at their normal service centres.
