February 2016 issue of OVERDRIVE on stands now

About Bill. . .

Halley drove the Mahindra KUV100.
Halley thought it was pretty kool to khristen it as a kwirky and kute krossover.
But then he used spellcheck and changed his mind.
Halley is smart.
Be like Halley.

Rohit road-tested the all-new Ford Endeavour.
Rohit thought that would be the end of it.
But then Bert went a step ahead and compared it to the Chevrolet Trailblazer.
Bert is smart.
Be like Bert.

Shumi started 2016 with a road test of the Kawasaki Versys 650.
He then topped that with a ride on the Indian Chief Dark Horse.
After which he got thunder-thighs from the Aprilia Tuono.
Shumi hogged all the bikes and wrote all three stories.
Shumi is very, very smart.
Be like Shumi.

Ashok was bummed he didn’t get to ride as much.
But then he ‘made do’ with a Benelli TNT 25 and a Moto Guzzi Audace.
Ashok makes ‘compromises’.
Ashok is flexible that way.
Be like Ashok.

Rishaad always thought the Volkswagen Beetle was a lady’s car.
But then Rishaad drove it.
And despite the ‘feminine’ exterior, he found it to be a capable car to drive.
Rishaad is open-minded.
Be like Rishaad.

And because he’s not sexist and biased towards ‘macho’ vehicles, Rishaad was picked to compare the new wee players in the 110cc segment.
The TVS Jupiter holds its ground in the face of new competition from the Maestro Edge.
The Jupiter does not try to be a hero.
Be like Jupiter.

Rishaad then had to restore his reputation by driving the GLE 450 AMG Coupe.
And landed himself quite a bill from all the fuel guzzling that SUVs are wont to do.
This bill was expensive.
Don’t be like this bill.

CS Santosh made his second attempt at the 2016 Dakar.
Santosh had to retire due to a broken navigation tower on his Suzuki 450 Rally.
But Santosh is gritty and resolves to return next year.
We will continue to cheer for Santosh.
We like Santosh.
Be like Santosh.

The comedy rule of three states that things that come in threes are inherently funnier, more satisfying, or more effective than other numbers.
We wondered if it applied to engines.
So we analysed all the three-cylinder engines available in the country today.
Unfortunately, the writer of this post could not apply the rule here.
Don’t be like this writer.

Bill is on the Internet.
Bill has read this writer’s post.
Bill knows that OVERDRIVE continues to bring you the best coverage of automotive news and reviews from around the world.
Bill will now proceed to the closest news stand and pick up the latest issue of OVERDRIVE and pore through it and stick that totally fetch poster of a Lexus LC 500 on his wall.
Bill is smart.
Be like Bill.
