There are many options for riders who are thinking to buy new bikes above 1000cc in India. Most of the large engine bikes are cruisers of power cruisers but we also have a couple of naked streetfighters and adventure tourer as well. All the large capacity bikes above 1000cc have monstrous power output and metal bending torque figures.

These numbers are far greater than what most riders in India are used to and given this factor, we advise every buyer of this category to understand the character of the motorcycle and the ways to handle all that power and torque on your rides. Even a slight twist of the throttle can surge the machine forward that can be dangerous in city traffic. So, you must be an experienced rider to deal with these powerful machines in all situations.

The bikes that are present on this list are the flagship motorcycles in most line-ups in terms of engine capacity and features a range of equipment for rider safety and convenience. Check out the bikes that are equipped with engines displacing more than 1000cc capacity.

Triumph Bonneville T120

We are starting the list with the Triumph Bonneville T120 as it is the most affordable bike above 1000cc with a 1200cc three-cylinder engine to propel it forward. In terms of product placement, the T120 is the elder sibling of the Bonneville T100 in Triumph’s India line-up. For the lovers of torque, the Bonneville offers a large amount of twisting force that puts a smile on your face every time you twist that throttle.

It is available for Rs 9.97 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi for the BS6 version and is only around one lakh rupees more than the T100. If you want something that can bend the tarmac with its classic torque nature, the Bonneville T120 could be the bike you need to look at.

At the core of the T120 Triumph Bonneville is a 1200cc, inline twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine and fuelled by a multiport sequential fuel injection system for crisp throttle response and smooth engine. It churns out 78 bhp of power at 6550 rpm and peak torque of 104 Nm arrives at 2970 rpm.

You can note that the maximum torque is generated at way too low rpm and thus, the power thrust is expected even with slight throttle input. The acceleration is lung-crushing with the bike hitting 100 kmph in just 4.2 seconds and the top speed being in the region of 190 kmph. All the 104 Nm of torque is channelled to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox.

Moving on to the fuel efficiency, the Bonneville T120 is expected to deliver around 22 km for every litre of petrol which is more adequate for a 1200cc motorcycle generating 104 Nm of torque. When this mileage number is combined with a 14.5-litre fuel tank that comes with this bike, you get a riding range of over 300 km from a single tankful.

Triumph T120 is a standard cruiser bike and thus it comes with a single piece, flat and well-padded seat that provides comfortable ride quality over any kind of roads. When the rider holds on to the raised handlebar, it creates a perfect ergonomic riding posture that does not induce pain in the body while on a long haul. There are heated grips that keep your hands warm on winter rides.

Moving on to the dashboard, you get to see a twin-pod instrument cluster featuring an analogue tachometer and speedometer. Apart from that, there is a supplementing LCD screen for displaying necessary data such as odometer, trip meters, distance to the empty, fuel gauge, average fuel consumption, gear position indicator and much more. There are chrome bezels around the dials that enhances the classic element of the retro cruiser.

At the front end, you get to see a pair of telescopic forks while the rear is suspended via twin shock absorbers. The tuning of the suspension is such that is takes on the bad roads without sending jolts to the rider while still offering strong high-speed stability on the highways.

The braking force is supplied by twin-disc setup at the front with 310 mm rotors gripped by Nissin callipers and a 255 mm rear disc brake is present at the rear again with Nissin callipers. A dual-channel ABS and a traction control system increases the rider safety on the T120.

Harley Davidson Forty-Eight

Next, we have the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight which is a cruiser bike from the house of America’s iconic motorcycle manufacturer. This bike is the starting point in Harley’s India line-up which is equipped with a 1200cc engine and also the bike with more than 1000cc to spare. The Forty-Eight is priced at Rs 10.61 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi making it a perfect cruiser for people who are under a tight budget.

Powering the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight is moved by a 1202cc, V-twin, air-cooled revolution engine with 4 valves per cylinder. This motor develops 96 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm and the data for max power is not provided by the company which we expect to be around 60 to 70 bhp range. The power transmission duties are taken care of by a 5-speed gearbox.

This constant mesh cog box helps in charging the bike to 100 kmph from zero in 5 seconds and pushes till the bike hits a top speed of 177 kmph. For highway rides, you can clock the speedometer at 100-120 kmph for all-day riding.

Harley Davidson Forty-Eight is a cruiser bike and we have already mentioned the same. However, despite the fact, it gets a small 7.9-litre fuel tank which when combined to a 16-18 km per litre of average mileage, you can extract a range of just 140 km from a single tankful. This kind of range is only feasible for short weekend getaways rather than long hauls.

On the dashboard, you get a single-pod instrument cluster with an analogue speedometer and a small LCD screen with the rest of the information. The seats are quite comfortable but that cannot be said about the suspension though. There is a pair of telescopic forks at the front end with twin shock absorbers at the rear which are tuned towards a stiffer side to provide high-speed stability across the country roads. However, on the bad patches of roads, you can feel each and every bump in your spine due to the stiffness.

The braking performance comes from 292 mm disc brakes at both the front and the rear accompanied by a dual-channel ABS. For short spins in and around the cities, the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight is a perfect machine to choose from.

Harley Davidson 1200 Custom

A slightly smaller cruiser than the Forty-Eight but significantly larger than the Iron 883, we have the Harley Davidson 1200 Custom. It is a chrome-packed cruiser bike from the house of America’s iconic motorcycle manufacturer. Priced at Rs 10.89 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi, it is a significant increase than the previous models but only commands a slight premium over the Forty-Eight.

The overall style of the 1200 Custom is inspired by the Iron 883 with a taller front and lower rear part. There are oodles of chrome treatment all over the bike with headlight, handlebars, engine block and exhaust all covered with shiny chrome. Replacing the aluminium alloy wheels, the bike now comes with spoke rims to impart a more traditional look to the bike.

Moving on to the powertrain, you get a V-twin, 1202cc, air-cooled revolution engine featuring a multiport fuel injection system. This powerplant belts out 96 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm with the power output not officially specified by the company but this motor is expected to produce around 70 bhp of power. A 5-speed gearbox is paired with the engine with mostly taller gears.

Just like all other cruisers, the 1200 Custom weighs quite a lot at 268 kg but doesn’t feel heavy while on the run. The bike takes around 5 seconds to hit 100 kmph from a standstill, all thanks to the torque availability at low revs, and the bike reaches a top speed of 177 kmph if the throttle is pinned all the way open. However, you can easily munch the miles at 100-120 kmph region which has the least vibrations from the engine.

The bike offers a low ground clearance of just 105 mm which is bad for the Indian roads that are filled with tall speed breakers. You have to deal with multiple belly scratches on your day to day rides. This low ground clearance can be felt when you lean around the corners as footpegs scraps the road pretty easily.

The bike is suitable for long rides as it creates a comfortable rider triangle with raised handlebars and front-seat footpegs. Also, there is a large fuel tank that can hold 17 litres of fuel which when combined with the average fuel efficiency of 20 km per litre on the highways will return a riding range of over 340 km in a single tankful. This avoids frequent stops at the fuel station.

Speaking about the instrument cluster, there is a single pod floating unit which is placed between the handlebars. It provides an analogue speedometer with a small LCD display for information like tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer, trip meters and more. The switchgear is typical to that of Harley Davidson and features separate switches for turn indicators.

A pair of telescopic forks are present at the front and twin shock absorbers are stuck at the rear. This setup is quite stiff and road undulations can be felt by the rider. The braking system, on the other hand, features 292 mm disc brake units at both ends coupled with a dual-channel ABS for safer braking.

Harley Davidson Forty Eight Special

After Forty-Eight and the 1200 Custom, we have this Harley Davidson Forty Eight Special which is built on the platform of the Forty-Eight motorcycle with some changes that are made for good. This bike gets tall handlebars that give a chopper like riding posture which is comfortable over long rides. The Forty-Eight Special is priced at Rs 10.98 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi which is not too much over the Forty-Eight as you are getting better riding posture and custom colour options.

At the heart of the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight Special is a V-twin revolution engine displacing 1202cc and is air-cooled with 4 valves per cylinder. It generates 96 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm and max power figure is not mentioned by the company but we expect it to be around 60 to 70 bhp range. All the power transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed gearbox via a belt drive.

Al that torque aids in sprinting the bike from zero to 100 kmph in 5 seconds and pushes all the way to the top speed of 177 kmph. For highway rides, you can tick at 100-120 kmph for all-day riding. Due to the large engine, the heat from the engine can make you uncomfortable in the city rides but out on the highways, the engine runs cooler.

The Harley Davidson Forty Eight Special comes with a small and chunky fuel tank. Despite looking great, the tank holds only 7.9 litres of fuel which when combined to an average mileage of 16 to 18 km per litre of average mileage in the city rides. However, out on the highways, expect more than 20 kmpl of mileage and a ride to your favourite café can be easily completed with a riding range of about 150 km from a single tankful of fuel. You will definitely need to refuel the bike frequently over long distances.

There is a single-pod instrument cluster on the dashboard with an analogue speedometer and a small LCD screen offering rest of the information such as odometer, tachometer, fuel gauge etc. The rider’s seat is scooped and is quite comfortable to sit on while the same cannot be said about the short travel and stiff rear suspension.

A pair of telescopic forks are present at the front end with twin shock absorbers at the rear. The stiffer suspension provides high-speed stability across the country roads but a jerky experience on the bad roads. The braking performance comes from 292 mm disc brakes at both the front and the rear accompanied by a dual-channel ABS.

No matter what your age is, young, middle-aged or old, the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight Special is here to always make your rides memorable and also makes you stand apart from the crowd.

Ducati Scrambler 1100

The Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Ducati not only offers the smaller 800cc Scrambler bike in the country but they also have its elder brother, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 on offer too. It has a far more powerful engine offering a new league of thrilling performance from its 1100cc L-twin engine. The BS6 version of the bike is priced at Rs 10.99 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi.

To make it easier for riders to take the bike on off-road trails, the company has added dual-purpose tyres on the bike. The ground clearance of the bike stands at 182 mm which is sufficient for mild off-road riding.

Ducati Scrambler 1100 is powered by an air and oil-cooled, L-twin, 1079cc engine with an electronic fuel injection system and 2 valves per cylinder SOHC head. It pumps out a max power of 84.8 bhp at 7500 rpm and a peak torque of 88 Nm at 4750 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox is mated to the engine via a slipper clutch for aggressive downshifting.

It offers an engaging ride and delivers strong performance on and off the road. Scramblers motorcycles are not made for hardcore off-roading but only for taking on the trails. The 1100cc Scrambler can return a mileage of around 18 kmpl and you can extract a tank range of easily over 250 km from a 15-litre fuel tank capacity.

Coming to the instrument cluster, you get a fully digital console which is smalls and quirky unit. In here, you get all the details about the ride and the bike.

A pair of USD forks and monoshock does the job of handling undulations at the front and the rear respectively. This suspension system is pretty hard for regular use and small bumps are felt right on the seat. However, on very bad roads with larger undulations, the suspension works well by absorbing most of the undulations.

In terms of braking and safety, the bike gets dual 320 mm discs at the front which are gripped by Brembo monobloc callipers for a sharp bite and at the rear, there is a single 245 mm disc brake unit. A dual-channel ABS and cornering ABS are provided for enhanced safety of the rider.

Kawasaki Ninja 1000

For the love of sports tourers, the Japanese company is offering especially the sports tourer family. Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX is the next bike on this list. It is a sports tourer motorcycle with a litre-class engine delivering a good amount of power and performance. The 2021 version of the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is priced at Rs 11. 04 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi.

Powering the Ninja 1000 SX is an inline 4-cylinder, 1043 cc liquid-cooled engine that is made to breathe through a 16-valve DOHC head. This powerplant is fed by a multipoint fuel injection system and lets out a healthy 140 bhp of max power at 10,000 rpm with peak torque coming of 111 Nm at 8000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox aids in reduction duties and is coupled via a slipper clutch for a lighter clutch feel and safer downshifting.

Due to its heavy frame, engine and full fairing, the bike isn’t light, it weighs in at 238 kg with fuel and oil and ready to move. Speaking about the performance, this torque-full bike launches with lung crushing acceleration reaching 100 kmph in just 3.3 seconds and has the ability to hit 200 kmph in around 14 seconds. This machine is no slouch as it reaches a top speed near to the 260 kmph mark.

In the features department, the bike is equipped with a 4.3-inch fully digital TFT meter console which offers a range of information along with Bluetooth connectivity for ride logs and trip data. Apart from this, the bike comes with electronic rider aids including a Kawasaki quickshifter for seamless gear shifting without using the clutch, electronic cruise control for effortless highway rides, three-level traction control to keep the bike under control under hard acceleration, a dual-channel ABS, cornering ABS, four ride modes – Sports, Rain, Road and User.

There is a pair of USD forks and Monoshock at the front and the rear respectively keeping the bike hung on the chassis. This suspension system is tuned to provide a balanced ride filled with comfort and stability. The Ninja 1000 SX is halted by dual 320 mm disc brakes at the front end with a single 250 mm disc brake unit working at the rear wheel.

For rider convenience, the Ninja 1000 is blessed with a full LED headlight cluster delivering a bright throw and illumination for safer and easy night rides. You also get an adjustable windshield visor, supportive ergonomically designed seats and raised handlebar for near upright sitting posture for long rides.

Fill its 19-litre tank and cross over 300 km in a single tankful before requiring a top-up for further riding.

Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is a bike that is specially made for long hauls while still maintaining some level of sportiness. Not to forget the charm and howl of an inline 4-cylinder engine.

Kawasaki Versys 1000

Moving on to the Kawasaki Versys 1000, an adventure tourer motorcycle with a litre-class engine and performance. It is a bike that is based on the platform of the Ninja 1000 SX and features most of the equipment that is required for a road-biased adventure tourer bike. It is priced at Rs 11.19 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi making it only marginally expensive than the Ninja 1000 SX.

Kawasaki Versys 1000 is propelled by the same 1043cc, inline 4-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is seen on the Ninja 1000 SX. This 16-valve motor is in a different state of tune churning out lower 116 bhp at 9000 rpm and t 102 Nm torque at 7500 rpm. The power is reduced as most adventure riders are not experienced with the racy inline four-cylinder engine with high engine output. There is a 6-speed gearbox paired with the engine and connected via a slipper clutch.

Another reason for lower power output is to extract more kilometres per litre of fuel. There is a large 21 litres fuel tank fitted in the engine so as to make it run farther in a single tankful. If the bike manages to return a mileage of about 18 kmpl, the range can be easily over 350 km which is adequate for a half-day of riding with the powerful engine onboard.

Being made for running long distances with maximum comfort, the company has provided a tall windscreen visor for deflecting wind-blasts that can be adjusted according to your requirement. The handlebars are raised enough to give riders an upright riding posture. When this posture is coupled with well-padded and spacious seats for both the rider and the pillion, the long hauls become easy to counter.

On the dashboard, you will find a semi-digital instrument cluster with a good variety of information available to consume. However, what we miss is the presence of a TFT screen that is available on most of the bikes from Kawasaki.

Coming to the suspension, the bike features USD forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear which are tuned to provide a comfortable ride and handling characteristics to the bike.

Anchoring duties are performed by a pair of 310 mm disc brakes at the front with a single 250 mm disc brake unit present at the rear. For safety and the convenience of the rider, the company has added a number of electronics rider aids such as a dual-channel ABS, Kawasaki Cornering management function, three-level traction control system, electronic cruise control etc.

Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster

Up next, we got Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster which is a classic cruiser form the house of Triumph. It is a bike to ride into the unknown with the style and charm of the retro style and charm. The Speedmaster offers a laid-back riding posture to the riders which aids in riding for hours without any discomfort.

At the core of the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster you get to see a 1200cc engine with inline two cylinders and liquid-cooling. The fuelling duties are done by a multiport sequential fuel injection system that helps in the development of 77.3 bhp at 6250 rpm and a peak torque of 107 Nm at 4000 rpm. A 6-speed transmission is connected to the engine that does the job of power transmission.

Performance-wise, the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster sprints from 0 to 100 kmph in under 5 seconds and manages to hit a top speed of 190 kmph. For touring on the highways, you would like to keep the speedo needle at 100-120 kmph which is a sweet spot where the engine does not feel strained and also return a great fuel economy.

Speaking about the fuel efficiency, the bike returns about 23 kmpl on the highways with under 20 kmpl within city limits. One let-down is the small 12-litre fuel tank which can only provide a riding range of about 270 km which is not so good range for touring. In our opinion, a cruiser should have a range of over 350 km to reduce the number of fuel station visits while on a long haul.

The Speedmaster has a retro design language which is the main thing to flaunt. However, the bike only looks retro but actually sports modern-day features and equipment. The new generation equipment is a liquid-cooled engine that offers better rideability in hot conditions and enhanced engine life and reliability. With BS6 emission norms at work, this engine is compliant with the most stringent emission norms the world has ever seen.

Coming to the instrumentation, the Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster comes fitted with a twin-pod meter console which is semi-digital in layout. You get all the information you need from the meter console but misses on Bluetooth enable connected features like ride logs, trip data and turn by turn navigation.

A pair of telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear are well-balanced in tuning and offers utmost comfort over all kinds of roads. To stop the bike in its path, a pair of 310 mm disc brakes are stationed at the front with a single 255 mm disc brake present at the rear. For enhanced braking control, the bike gets a dual-channel ABS, traction control system and ride modes.

Harley Davidson Low Rider

The next bike on the list is the Harley Davidson Low Rider which is a large capacity cruiser motorcycle from the stable of the iconic American motorcycle manufacturer. This chrome filled cruiser bike is priced at Rs 13.75 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi.

Harley Davidson Low Rider is powered by a V-twin, air-cooled, 1746cc revolution engine. This powerplant is tuned to generate a maximum torque of 145 Nm at 3000 rpm and the power rating is not specified by the manufacturer. However, we feel like, the bike makes around 90 to 100 bhp of power. All this torque is sent to the rear wheel via a belt drive system after reduction occurring through a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Coming to the performance, the 300 kg bike can sprint to 100 kmph from standstill in about 5 seconds with a top speed of over 170 kmph. Speaking about fuel efficiency, the bike can deliver a mileage of about 18 kmpl on the highways that can let you ride for nearly 340 km in a single tankful of fuel.

On this bike, you get the signature V-twin exhaust note like all the Harley Davidson bikes and offers one hell of a road presence. Kerb weight of 300 kg ensures rock-solid stability on the highways and stiff suspension aids in the same, especially around the corners.

Harley Davidson Low Rider S

After the Low Rider, we have the special version of the bike which is called the Harley Davidson Low Rider S. It features the largest capacity engine from the house of Harley Davidson at a considerably lower price tag. The Low Rider S is available for Rs 14.69 lakh ex-showroom which is the most affordable 1868cc cruiser motorcycle in India.

The Low Rider S promises extensive road presence thanks to its blacked-out engine and exhaust components with body-coloured headlight cowl. It is a sportier and younger cruiser bike propelled by a revolution engine displacing 1868cc and is a V-twin unit with a 2 valves per cylinder layout. The mill puts out an overwhelming 155 Nm of twisting force at 3250 rpm. All this thrust ensures that the 305 kg motorcycle is easy to manage at all speeds. The top speed of the bikes is 175 kmph and you can cruise at 100 to 120 kmph comfortably without stressing the engine.

There is a 6-speed gearbox that is tuned to deliver the above-mentioned cruising speed just under 3000 rpm. Speaking about the fuel efficiency, the bike delivers about 15-16 km per litre which is sufficient for an engine of this size and grunt. On the other hand, the mileage can climb up to 17 kmpl on the highways and when coupled to 18.9 litres of fuel that its tank can hold, you get a range of a little over 300 km which, in our opinion, is just fine.

As the Low Rider S is a sportier version of the bike, it gets a pair of USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. As usual, the suspension is stiff in a bid to maintain high-speed stability and better dynamics around the corners. If you want to stop this 305 kg behemoth, the company has provided the bike with large disc brakes at both ends which are expected to be 300 mm in diameter. Also, to keep the rider safe on wet roads and loose gravel, you get a dual-channel ABS for confidence-inspiring braking.

The changes that you will find on the Low Rider S is the centre-set foot pegs, a raised handlebar and slightly leaned back riding posture.
