Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21 – Price, Mileage, Specifications, Colors, Images

Street bikes are those which are best suited for city riding. They are naked, with minimum bodywork, exposed air-cooled or liquid-cooled engine to flaunt along with upright riding position with some models offering street aggressive stance but even then, you have your spine upright. Yes, today we will talk about the best street bikes in India in 2020-21.

In India, we always had street bikes, and it was the fully-fledged sports bikes that came in later. The classic street bikes like Yamaha RX100 and RX135 is still on the minds of people. There are many advantages to having a street bike when compared to a fully-fledged sports bike. Most street bikes are lighter and easily maneuverable in the city riding conditions, where you are required to change the lanes more often and tackle the traffic.

Street bikes have comfortable ergonomics with an upright sitting position leaving little or no strain on your palms, wrists, and shoulder. Also, if you are suffering from lower back pain, you are safer with street bikes. Looking at the excellent Indian road conditions (it’s sarcasm), the variety of potholes to survive, and innumerable speed breakers that can appear in front of you out of nowhere.

Street Bikes are your way into the world of motorcycling as they are affordable, easy to ride and require less maintenance.

Another significant part is street bikes need lesser maintenance and has fewer body panels to take care of. It is not an arguable statement that street bikes are for rough riders because they are made with such riders in mind.

In the city, your new lighter machine has a better power to weight ratio and is easy to maneuver. And street bikes are here as a boon for the city commuter. Here we have arranged India’s best street bikes, starting with the most affordable one and walking through to the most expensive street motorcycle in India. Let’s dive into this comprehensive guide to the best street bikes in India in 2020-21.

Yamaha FZ FI

So here we go with our first motorcycle on the list. Remember when the first Yamaha FZ was launched in India? People went completely insane over the aggressive street design of the bike. More than a decade ago, the bike had a fully digital display, which was a motorcycle first, not a segment-first feature. No other bike featured a fully digital instrument cluster back then.

Last year, Yamaha gave FZ a complete makeover. The power figure was a bit lower in interest to the fuel efficiency of the motorcycle. No doubt, even with a 149cc engine, the bike gives out an impressive fuel economy of about 47 km per litre. That’s near to some of the 125 cc motorcycles in India.

Yamaha FZS FI - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

The lord of the streets is powered by a 149-cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine accompanied by a 2-valve head and SOHC (Single Over Head Cam) drive. This fuel injection motor churns out a relatively lower power of 12.2 bhp at 7250 rpm and a peak torque of 13.6 Nm, which comes at 5500 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed transmission, which has a lengthy throw and would certainly mind people with the smaller foot.

The numbers seem low for a 150cc bike but that’s not the case while riding the bike in the real-world conditions. Why? Because of the efficient power train and a low kerb weight of just 137 kilos. Acceleration is quite sluggish as the bike takes nearly 20 seconds to touch the 100 kmph mark. The top speed is estimated to be around 110 kmph.

The seat height of the bike is also accessible by the short riders. The seat is a single-piece unit and can accommodate a full-size pillion. This is to make you understand that bike has a large rear seat. It gets a fully-digital instrument cluster and fat front forks. At the rear, you get a mono-shock which is tuned to provide you a plush ride and the bike glides over the bad roads with ease.

Speaking about the brakes, you get a dual Disc set up and the front one being 282 mm which is more than sufficient for a bike of this performance. The ABS is available only at the front to keep the costs in check. That said, once you get on the bike, you feel that you are ‘in the bike’ and ‘not over it’ which is confidence-inspiring and makes you feel safer. That said, the Yamaha FZ FI is still the lord of the streets.

Hero Xtreme 160R

Next, on the list of the best street bikes in India, we have a sole entrant from the Hero MotoCorp. The newly launched BS6 motorcycle is a replacement for the old Hero extreme 150. With the BS6 update, the extreme doesn’t just get a new engine; it is an entirely new motorcycle from every angle. There is a newly designed LED headlamp assembly; the tank and body panels are also brand new. This is the bike that can attract a few customers loyal to Hero and are looking for a hassle-free street bike for everyday use.

Powering the new Hero is an air-cooled, single-cylinder, 163cc engine with a 2-valve head. The engine pumps out 15 bhp at 8500 rpm and a peak twisting force of 14 Nm, which arrives at 6500 rpm. The engine doesn’t seem to catch the Apache 160 4V’s engine but is a fantastic unit at its own benchmark.

Hero Xtreme 160R - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

This motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox on the shorter side for crisp city performance. Xtreme 160R does 0-60 kmph in claimed 4.7 seconds. If you want to go prowling on the highway, the best speed is 80 kmph for strain-free cruising. The top speed is estimated to be around 110 kmph, just like the FZ.

Hero also added Xsens technology just like what is available in the Hero’s scooter range, including Maestro and Destini 125. There are 14 sensors in the programmed fuel injection system, which is especially designed for the Xtreme to deliver maximum power and torque in which the requirement comes.

Speaking about the features, it gets a fully digital negative display instrument cluster that provides all the necessary information about the motorcycle. For enhanced safety to the rider, the bike offers side stand engine cut off and Hazard lights as standard. You get a 276 mm petal discs up front and a 220 mm rotor at the rear with a single-channel ABS working at the front end. If you want to save a few thousand bucks, you can also opt for the lower variant with a rear drum brake. We encourage you to go with the rear disc brake variant as the disc brake doesn’t fade with usage and provides better-stopping power.

The seat is a single-piece unit but is upswept at the rear, making it aggressive when looked at from the side. Hero Xtreme 160R weighs in at just 138.5 kg for the drum brake variant and 139.5 kg for the rear disc variant. We expect around 50 km per litre as an average fuel economy number when ridden with a light wrist in the city and the highways.

TVS Apache 160 4V

Moving on to the little sporty machine from the TVS, the TVS Apache 160 4V is counted among fun-to-ride motorcycle in this list of best street bikes in India list. Apaches hold a unique position in the Indian motorcycling scenario as they are designed and developed with racing in mind. Oh, no-no, Apache 160 4V is also one of the most practical and easy to use the motorcycle in the segment.

The new BS6 update brought in additional changes to the design of the bike with full LED headlamp assembly and little tweaks to the bikini fairing. In our personal opinion, the BS4 version of the Apache 160 4V looked better. Another bad thing that happened with the motorcycle is a decrease in the power output from the BS4 version.

TVS Apache 160 4V - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Coming on to the engine, the 159.7cc engine on the Apache 160 4V is an oil-cooled unit making it good for hot summer highway rides. The 4-valve fuel-injected engine pumps out an impressive 15.6 bhp at 8250 rpm 14.12 Nm torque at 7250 rpm. The sad part is the power output is decreased by more than one bhp, and torque is down by 0.7 Nm for the BS6 upgrade.

The power figures are still impressive for the bike of its nature, i.e., acceleration. There is enough torque at the bottom end for easy city usage, and a portion of power is also focused more on the top-end for a higher top speed of 115 kmph, which is more than enough for a 160cc motorcycle. It is also one of the quickest street bikes to 100 kmph in about 16 seconds. On the other hand, the BS4 Apache 160 4V did 0-100 kmph in 15.2 seconds.

Speaking about the features that are provided are a fully digital instrument cluster, a single-piece seat for high practicality, and a complete LED headlamp. The suspension is necessary telescopic forks at the front and mono-shock at the rear. In the braking department, you’ll find a petal disc at the front and an option of drum and disc at the rear. The ABS is a single channel unit working wonders at the front wheel.

A few shortcomings on the bike are its high weight of 147 kg and skinny rear tyre of 110. TVS should have gone for a standard wider rear tyre of 130 sections as tyres enhance the grip, safety, and the looks of a bike. TVS Apache is a great street bike for anyone looking at a sports commuter at an affordable price tag. If you are upgrading from a 100cc bike, the Apache 160 4V will go the justice to your biking skills.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160

It is not possible for Bajaj to stay away from any segment. Bajaj is the pioneer in creating a new motorcycle segment in the Indian bike market. It was the one who created the 180cc segment, a 135cc segment, a 200cc segment with the first Pulsar 200, and finally the 220cc segment. Bajaj created a buzz with the launch of KTM bikes in India and Pulsar 200 NS (Naked Sport) in 2012. The new NS 160 was designed to take on the sports commuter segment as customers consider something unique compared to the decade-old Pulsar 150.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

The street bike looks entirely similar to its elder sibling, Pulsar NS 200, despite some cost-saving changes. It gets an oil-cooled engine when compared to the liquid-cooled unit found in the 200cc bike. Pulsar NS 160 gets its power from a 160.3cc engine that comes with a 4-valve head. This engine was first seen on the Pulsar AS 160 years ago. Unlike TVS Apache 160 4V, Pulsar’s engine didn’t lose power on upgrading to the BS6 emission standard.

It still churns out a maximum power of 17.03 bhp high up in the rev range of 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 14.6 Nm arriving at 7250 rpm. The power figures are more significant than the Apache, but the weight of the bike is also on the higher side at 151 kg. Speaking about the performance, the bike does a 0-100 kmph in about 15 seconds and has a top speed of 120 kmph, which is pretty cool for a bike in the sports commuter segment.

The instrument cluster you get is quite old-school even for people who love an analogue tachometer. Any rider with a heart for the motorcycles always loves the presence of an analogue tachometer and this is the only bike remaining to sport one. However, for the BS6 upgrade, Bajaj should have changed the layout and should have added additional features such as gear position indicator and average fuel economy, etc.

The suspension department has telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. You get a single-channel ABS working on the front 260 mm disc gripped by a dual-piston calliper. At the rear, you get a 230 mm disc with single-piston calliper. Bajaj has positioned the bike as a lure for customers that have fallen in love with the Pulsar NS 200 but cannot afford one.

Suzuki Gixxer

Next in the guide to the best street bikes in India is from the house of Suzuki. The 155cc Gixxer is the talk of the town with new colour options that were made available recently. The bike has an aggressive streetfighter stance which is seen by the design of the bike. Suzuki has targeted the bike at the street bike enthusiasts at an affordable price point. The Gixxer 155 is an expensive affair when compared with the likes of Yamaha FZ FI, Apache 160 4V, and Pulsar NS 160 despite any special features on offer.

Suzuki Gixxer 155 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

The engine is a basic air-cooled unit which makes this bike a tad overpriced as its power and torque figures are nothing home to talk about. The 155cc single-cylinder engine with a basic 2-valve head develops only 13.4 bhp at 8000 rpm and 13.8 Nm torque at 6000 rpm. These numbers are only a fraction more than the FZ but for a price premium of around Rs 13,000. Suzuki Gixxer is a good city performer and has enough grunt to take on occasional highway rides. Speaking about out-right performance, the 0-100 is achieved in 18 seconds with a top speed of around 110 to 112 kmph.

Suzuki has offered a fully-digital instrument console which is quite informative with a gear position indicator. The display is also large when compared to other bikes in this segment. Gixxer gets a full LED headlight assembly which is oval in shape and does the job of illuminating the road pretty well. It is the design that attracts the most. The bike gets fat 41 mm telescopic forks at the front and mono-shock at the rear. Braking performance comes from the disc brakes at both ends accompanied by a single-channel ABS for safe braking.

TVS Apache 200 4V

Moving on to some bigger bikes in the list of best street bikes in India in 2020-21. Here we have TVS Apache 200 4V. This motorcycle looks exactly like Apache 160 4V but with some noticeable changes. These are wide rear tyre and split seats. The Apache 200 4V is also the only bike in its price range to offer Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. With the BS6 upgrade, they get extra features like an LED headlamp but loses out on power and torque.

TVS Apache 200 4V - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

The engine that grumbles in the Apache 200 4V is a 197.75 cc oil-cooled unit with a 4-valve head. This powerplant churns out a maximum power of 20.21 bhp at 8500 rpm and max twisting force of 16.8 Nm at 7500 rpm. It is the torque where things have gone bad. The previous BS4 version of Apache 200 4V extracted 18.1 Nm torque which was a tad slower than the Pulsar NS 200’s 18.5 Nm figure. But now the difference is huge at 1.7 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox which is another let down from the manufacturer. Expect a slower 0-100 number but the top speed should remain the same as the power drop was not significant. The top speed of the older Apache 200 4V was 127 kmph.

Coming on to the features department, it is where you will get the most from the Indian street bike. You will be welcomed by a fully digital instrument cluster with minor changes in the layout to accommodate the notifications area at the middle-bottom which will display notifications such as missed calls, messages turn by turn navigation, etc, right on the LCD display. You can get ride logs and data related to your motorcycle on a mobile app developed by TVS Motor Company. It is the most feature-rich instrument cluster in the entire motorcycle segment even if you go higher in the price range.

There is a telescopic fork at the front and a mono-shock at the rear sporty ride and handling. Speaking about the ride quality, the Apache 200 4V is among the best riding motorcycle in this segment with an excellent suspension set up that takes on bumps with the utmost ease. Also, with an aggressive yet upright sitting position, you can ride the whole day long on the highways and corners around corners like a pro.

The bike is available in 2 variants, one with dual-channel ABS and another one is single channel ABS. Price of the bike starts from Rs 1,23,000 ex-showroom. This makes it one of the affordable 200 cc motorcycles in the country.

Honda Hornet 2.0

For about 5 months, Honda kept quiet. Just as the month of August was falling, Honda surprised everyone with a new Hornet. Most of the Honda fans were waiting for a BS6 Hornet 160R and some over optimists thought Honda would launch a 200cc street bike in India. But Honda listened to nearly both of them by launching the Honda Hornet 2.0. As the name suggests, it is not a 200cc bike but a second version of the stylish Honda Hornet.

It is one of the beefiest and most drool-worthy motorcycles ever launched in India. Powered by an international Honda engine with 184.4cc capacity. It is a single-cylinder engine with a 2-valve head. The PGM-Fi fuel-injected motor pumps out 17.1 bhp of maximum power at 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 16.1 Nm which comes at 6000 rpm. The engine is mated to a sigh, the 5-speed gearbox should have been a 6-speed unit for better highway rideability.

Honda Hornet 2.0 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

The power figures seem a little low, but don’t go with just the numbers of the paper as Hornet 2.0 weighs in at just 142 kg which ensures a higher power to weight ratio of 120 bhp per ton. The bike is relatively new and hence there are no concrete numbers of acceleration and top speed. We estimated that Hornet 2.0 would hit 100 kmph from standstill in about 12-13 seconds and will have a top speed in the region of 120 to 125 kmph.

Coming to the main point of the motorcycle, the design and features. Honda Hornet 2.0 is based on the international motorcycle from the house of Honda CB190R. It was launched in 2015 in China and was on sale in other Asian markets too. The aggressive design language is carried forward to the Indian model with come changes to appeal to the Indian customers.

The headlight continues to remind you of the older Hornet while the rest of the body panels are new and gives a fresh look. The main point of attraction is the beefy USD forks from Showa that are painted in golden colour. This is first in the segment feature which is only available only in KTM motorcycles in this list of best street bikes in India.

In the name of features, you get a complete LED lighting set up including the turn indicators, a fully digital negative display instrument cluster. The cluster provides the rider all the important numbers including gear position indicator, battery voltage, and a service reminder. There is an option to increase or decrease the brightness of the screen too.

Stopping power comes from a 276 mm disc brake at front with Nissin calipers and at the rear, you get a 220 mm disc with regular Bybre caliper. For the price Honda is asking for Hornet 2.0, we feel that there should be a double channel ABS on offer. However, you have to keep content with a single-channel ABS as of now. The bike gets the widest front tyre of 110 cross-sections while the rear tyre stands at 140 mm.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 200

Now, it’s time for the king of the under 200cc motorcycle, the mighty Bajaj Pulsar NS 200. How? KTM Duke 200 is the real king, right? Yes, but Pulsar NS 200 is priced at Rs 40,000 cheaper than the Duke 200 (it’s even cheaper than the overpriced Duke 125) and ticks all the right boxes of performance, practicality as well as maintenance. Priced at just Rs 1,30,000, Pulsar NS 200 is one of the most value for money street bike in the Indian market.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Launched in 2012, we haven’t seen any major changes in the bike apart from the addition of single-channel ABS and FI for BS6 upgrade. Powering the Pulsar NS 200 is the same old 199.5 cc single-cylinder engine, with a 4-valve head and 3 spark plugs. The fuel-injected motor now pumps out 24.13 bhp at 9750 rpm and a peak torque of 18.5 Nm at 8000 rpm. This engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.

The best part is that with the BS6 upgrade, no power or torque figures are lost and the performance remains more or less similar to the BS4 version. The 156 kg bike does a 0-100 kmph timing under 11 seconds and goes up to a top whack of 140 kmph. It is blessed with a pressed steel perimeter frame making it the best handling motorcycle in this price range. The suspension set up to comprise of telescopic forks at the front and mono-shock at the rear.

Speaking about the features, this is the section where this bike lacks a lot. There are basic halogen headlights and LED taillights. The instrument cluster is also outdated. Bajaj should have come up with some changes to appeal to the present-day customer.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 is targeted at the audience looking for pure performance and nothing else. The bike is pretty good for touring as it gets a liquid-cooled engine that will tolerate the summer heat for a longer period of time. With at much power in hand, you’ll get a low fuel economy of around 32 km per litre.

Yamaha MT-15

MT-15 is an attempt from Yamaha to provide the taste of its MT series to the Indian bike enthusiasts. Up till the launch of MT-15, the MT series was targeted only in the international market for pricing and sales numbers reasons. However, there is another MT which comes in the superbike segment with a 900cc engine. The MT-15 is an aggressive streetfighter motorcycle with minimal body design, short handlebar reach, wider handlebars, and high seat height.

Powering the MT-15 is the same engine that does duty in the R15 V3. The liquid-cooled, 155cc, single-cylinder fuel-injected engine with a 4-valve head and variable valve actuation (VVA) technology pump out 18.23 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 13.9 Nm torque at 8500 rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a shorter final drive. Shorter gearing and a light kerb weight of 138 kg makes MT-15 quick off the line and attains 100 kmph in under 11 seconds. This leads to a lower top speed of 130 kmph.

Yamaha MT-15 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Yamaha had decided to keep MT-15 a feature-rich premium motorcycle and hence equipped the bike with a fully digital LCD instrument cluster also found on the R15 V3. The cluster displays a plethora of information including instantaneous fuel efficiency, average fuel efficiency, distance to empty, VVA activation, and much more.  What riders miss is Bluetooth connectivity which should be made available by the Japanese motorcycle maker.

MT-15 gets a stiffer suspension when compared to the FZ series of bikes because it is more focused on handling and performance. The bike gets R15’s delta box frame enabling the MT as corner devourer. Take it for a spin and you’ll understand that it is like KTM Duke from a Japanese manufacturer.

In the suspension department, the bike gets boring telescopic forks and a linked-type rear mono-shock. Braking performance comes from disc brakes at both ends but alas, there is only a single channel ABS on offer which is plain dreadful as Yamaha R15 V3 priced few thousand rupees more, gets a dual-channel unit. If you need something to flaunt and have fun with then MT-15 makes for a good buy. But remember, it didn’t get a big pillion seat.

KTM Duke 125

As we have come up quite high in the price range, we will encounter a few bikes from KTM, and here is the first one in the guide to the best street bikes in India in 2020-21. KTM Duke 125 is the smallest bikes from the KTM with a tiny 125cc engine. But why? At this price point, you can take home a 200cc Pulsar, 150cc MT-15 or by spending extra 10,000 rupees, you can literally buy a motorcycle with double the engine capacity in the form of FZ25. Why spend 1.42 lakh for a puny 125cc bike?

Maybe because it has the KTM DNA and it’s basically the Duke 200 with a 125cc engine. Nothing is different, the body panels, suspension, look of the engine, wheels, and tyres, everything is completely similar to the Duke 200. It’s a good bike to flaunt and is targeted at newbie riders who want to learn to ride but not on a Hero Splendor or Honda Shine but on a flashy KTM.

KTM Duke 125 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Launched in the fall of 2018 with a hard to swallow price tag of 1.18 lakh ex-showroom. Even at that price point, it was overpriced when compared to other 200cc bikes in the market. But with a series of price hikes and BS6 upgrade, the price is clearly absurd which is seen in the dwindling sales.

Powering the KTM Duke 125 is a 124.71 cc liquid-cooled engine with a 4-valve head. This motor makes power according to its size at 14.3 bhp coming at 9250 rpm and 12 Nm torque at 8000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Speaking of the performance, the bike does a 0-100 kmph run in more than 20 seconds and has a top speed of 115 kmph (if you are a lightweight rider). These numbers suggest that the bike competes with the likes of 150-160 cc bikes in the Indian market.

Speaking about the equipment on offer, you get USD setup at the front and mono-shock at the rear. One curious thing is, the tyres on this bike are wider than needed with 110 section at the front and 150 section at the rear. A 90 and 120 section tyres would have been sufficed for a bike like this. It gets a single-channel ABS and a fully digital instrument cluster with a plethora of information available to the rider.

Fuel economy is no the KTM’s forte but with such a small engine capacity, you can extract about 40 km per litre of petrol. The riding stance of this bike is aggressive and is made to cut through the corners with ease. If you need more madness, then better go for the Duke 200.

Yamaha FZ25

Yamaha FZ25 is the first bike with a 250cc engine in this guide to the best street bikes in India. Priced at little above Rs 1.5 lakh making it few of the bikes which received a massive hike in the price (Rs 18,000) with BS6 upgrade. Yamaha made sure that FZ25 is priced more than the R15 V3 and MT-15 in the product line-up and still remains under the Gixxer 250. It is more of a city bike than an out-right tourer because of a 5-speed gearbox. However, if you are fine with a lower cruising speed, it won’t hurt you touring goals either.

Yamaha FZ25 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Powering the FZ25 is a 249cc single-cylinder engine but with oil-cooling and a 2-valve head. Now, this is where things feel outdated. For a 249cc bike from a renowned Japanese manufacturer, a 2-valve head is a ridiculous choice. The company should have gone for a 4-valve head as it would have helped in improving the power output and fuel efficiency. The powerplant develops a modest 20.5 bhp at 8000 rpm and 20.1 Nm torque at 6000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission.

FZ25 does a 0-100 sprint in under 10 seconds and goes up to a speedo-indicated top speed of 140 kmph. You can cruise on the bike comfortably at 90-100 kmph all day long, but avoid riding on the highways at the night as the throw of the LED headlight is not good enough.

There are telescopic forks and mono-shock in the name of suspension attacked to wide tyres of 100 sections in the front and 140 section at the rear. Stopping power comes from the 282 mm disc and 220 mm disc in the front and the rear. The best part is that you get a dual-channel ABS as standard.

Speaking about the instrument cluster, it is quite small and should have upgraded to one seen on the R15 and MT-15. The display shows all the basic details with instantaneous fuel efficiency. Apart from all these things you won’t get anything extra. Yamaha FZ25 feels like Yamaha did the job in a hurry or they wanted to position a 250cc motorcycle for those who are looking for a basic bike for daily usage.

Suzuki Gixxer 250

When we talked about Suzuki Gixxer 155, we said that it is quite an overprice motorcycle from the house of Suzuki. But things have changed as you climbed up the ladder with us. The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh which is an attractive price tag for a full-fledged 250cc motorcycle. It is Suzuki’s attempt to take on the quarter-liter motorcycle segment in the Indian market and goes against the likes of the Bajaj Dominar 250 which is basically a touring focused bike.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 - Best Street Bikes in India in 2020-21

Suzuki Gixxer 250 is propelled by a 249cc, fuel-injected engine with a 4-valve head. This powerplant is cooled by Suzuki’s Oil Cooled System (SOCS) which employs a larger radiator and a fan when compared to other smaller oil-cooling units. It helps in making the engine-less complex and easy to service than a regular liquid-cooled engine. The engine pumps out 26.1 bhp at 9300 rpm and 22.2 Nm torque at 7300 rpm which is quite impressive for a quarter-litre street bike. Gixxer 250 gets a 6-speed gearbox for transmitting power to the rear wheel.

Speaking about the performance, the bike does a 0-100 kmph run in about 9 seconds and goes until the limiter kicks in at 150 kmph. To stop the 156 kg motorcycle, a 300 mm front disc and rear disc works in tandem with the help of dual-channel ABS. The suspension system is comprised of basic telescopic forks and monoshock at the rear.

The instrument cluster is a negative LCD unit with all the basic details and a gear position indicator. Suzuki Gixxer 250 is targeted at the audience who are looking for a complete 250cc street bike for their daily commute and occasional highway stints. You sit upright on this bike with wide handlebars making it super comfortable while riding. Tyres are wide enough for inspiring confidence while cornering but they are not too grippy to push the bike to its limits.

KTM Duke 200

KTM Duke 200 was the first motorcycle that landed in the country after Bajaj and KTM united for the main goal. At that time, Duke was launched at 1.18 lakh ex-showroom which made it quite a choice for people looking for madness on two wheels. It was the bike that completely changes the motorcycle market in India. Due to this bike, CBR 250R lost a huge chunk of sales as people went after Duke for fun leaving behind boring CBR 250R.

What makes KTM a mad motorcycle is its heart. The 199.5cc single-cylinder engine, with a 4-valve head, pumps out massive 24.6 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 19.2 Nm twisting force at 8000 rpm. This motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which is tuned to a shorter side. The acceleration on the Duke 200 is thrilling as it does 0-100 in under 10 seconds and goes up to a top speed of 138 kmph.

With the BS6 upgrade, the bike gets additional weight that came to a stronger frame used by Duke 250 and Duke 390. Now, the kerb weight of the bike stands at 159 kg which is around 10 kg more than the previous version.

There are USD forks at the front and mono-shock at the rear which are tuned to provide maximum handling and performance. Duke 200 has stiff ride quality so make sure you are not looking for comfort here. On the bad roads, your spine will feel all the shocks that are bumped on the tyres. Now the bike gets 13.5-litre fuel tank and the range has been increased for those tours. With an average fuel economy of 30 kmpl, you can run around 390 km before needing to refuel.

The best is yet to come in the form of a coloured TFT instrument cluster. Yes, the bike not gets a full-coloured instrument cluster which was first seen on the Duke 390. You can now pair your smartphone with the cluster and get all the data and logs of the bike as well as receive your mobile’s notifications. There is a plethora of information available for you to deal with and needs days before you can completely learn about it.

BMW G310R

BMW G310R is a premium street bike that recently slipped from being the final bike to the second last because of price correction with the BS6 upgrade.

Speaking about the ride, the BMW G310R has balanced ride quality – it is soft enough for everyday use and stiff enough for spirited cornering. The equipment level on the bike is robust as it comes with front USD forks and monoshock at the rear.
