KTM 125 Duke

The first bike in this list is KTM 125 Duke which is an entry-level 125cc streetfighter motorcycle from the Austrian company. It is made to cater the young riders who just want to own a bike from the international brand which is known for its performance and handling. However, the 125 Duke is the slowest bike which a price tag of Rs 1.51 lakh ex-showroom that clearly display it as an overpriced collector’s bike.

The engine that powers the KTM 125 Duke is a 124.71cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel injection and 4-valve head. This motor churns out a max power of 14.3 bhp at 9250 rpm and a peak torque of 12 Nm arrives at 8000 rpm. There is a 6-speed gearbox which hauls 125 Duke’s 159 kg heft to a top speed to around 100 kmph. The acceleration time is nothing to write home about. The bike manages to touch 100 kmph in more than 20 seconds making it the slowest bike to be priced over 1.5 lakh.

Being a street bike with a small 125cc engine, the bike is able to return a respectable fuel efficiency of over 40 kmpl in mixed riding conditions. A 10.5-litre fuel tank capacity will easily return a range of over 400 km which will be great for daily riding and can last more than half a month.

Coming to the dashboard, you will have to settle with a small digital display which provides a range of information to the rider from gear position indicator to fuel efficiency and distance to empty. The company could have possibly increased its value by providing Bluetooth connectivity with turn by turn navigation.

The suspension setup of the KTM 125 Duke is on the stiffer side to go with the original KTM way. Yes, the bike is tuned to delivering impeccable handling and road holding capability but on the other hand, the ride over bad patches of roads is painful due to hard suspension setup that sends jolts to the rider’s seat.

There is a piece of bad news for short riders as the seat height of the new KTM 125 Duke is 830 mm which is comfortably accessible to the taller rider. For short riders, there will remain some level of difficulty in managing the 159 kg of weight in the parking speeds.

The KTM 125 Duke is made for the young riders who want a stylish bike for learning as it has low power output owing to the fact that it has a 125cc engine which can be controlled by beginner riders.

Yamaha FZ25

Up next, we have Yamaha FZ25. It is a streetfighter bike in the quarter-litre segment offering a comfortable ride on the city roads. It comes with a sober design language which translates into subjective opinions for each rider. For some, the bike might feel aged and for some, it will be young and energetic.

Engine-wise, there is enough grunt to deal with day to day riding requirements and frequent power bursts on the highways. What is actually lacking in the Yamaha FZ25 is the 6th cog which makes riders wanting for more on the highways as the bike seems to run out of steam post 130 kmph on the speedometer.

The BS6 update brought the price of the bike up by staggering Rs 18,000 and you don’t really get any extra feature than a new headlight cowl and knuckle guards. Everyone in the crowd of the quarter-litre motorcycle enthusiasts expected Yamaha to offer an updated instrument cluster from the likes of Yamaha R15 V3 and MT-15.

Powering the Yamaha FZ25 is air and oil-cooled, 249cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine with 2-valve SOHC head. This engine pumps out healthy 20.51 bhp at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 20.1 Nm comes up at 6000 rpm. There is a 5-speed gearbox offering great acceleration and a top speed north of 130 kmph on the highways. The engine is highly tractable and is easy to ride in the city traffic on 3rd and 4th gear without stalling the motor.

This engine is not the most powerful in the segment but is highly fuel-efficient. With an average mileage of around 37 kmpl in mixed riding conditions. With a steady throttle, you can also achieve more than 40 kmpl from this bike. A 13-litre tank will deliver a riding range of more than 450 km from a single tankful making it a great choice for long tours.

The suspension setup on the FZ25 is among the best in the segment as it is well-balanced to provide acceptable high-speed stability and also glides over the bad patches of roads without sending jolts of bumps to the rider’s spine. The upright riding posture on the bike makes it good for frequent highway touring and ability to allow riders to sit on the saddle for hours in a stretch.

A small fully-digital instrument cluster is present on the dashboard which offers plenty of information to the rider with instantaneous fuel efficiency to keep tabs on the fuel consumption and help you understand the average distance the bike might travel with the left-over fuel in the tank.

It is a bike for those who are looking for a 250cc grunt in a comfortable, fuel-efficient and practical package.

Bajaj Pulsar RS 200

Moving on to the Bajaj RS 200. It is the only faired sports bike from the house of Bajaj Auto and is made on the platform of Pulsar NS 200. Over the Pulsar NS 200, the bikes get twin projector headlamps with LED DRLs, full fairing with taller visor and dual-channel ABS for enhanced stopping power.

All these features make RS 200 a capable sports tourer and with comfortable upright riding posture, you can munch the miles for hours without stepping down from the saddle. The fairing offers good protection from crosswinds as well as high-speed windblast. You can ride the bike at 100 kmph without breaking a sweat.

At the heart of the Pulsar RS 200 is a 199.5cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine which is fed by an electronic fuel injection system and a 4-valve head for breathing. The motor churns out a max power of 24.13 bhp at 9750 rpm and 18.5 Nm torque at 8000 rpm. A 6-speed gearbox comes fitted with the engine which provides excellent acceleration and top speed numbers.

The fuel efficiency of the bike is around 33 kmpl overall which isn’t bad for the amount of power this engine makes. A fuel tank capacity of 12 litres will return a riding range of around 400 km which is ideal for long-distance touring.

The suspension system on the RS 200 is comprised of telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. This setup is tuned towards a slightly stiffer side ensuring great handling and hold holding capability while the ride over bad roads might ask you to slow down a bit. However, out on the highways, this is among the best in the segment.

At the dashboard, you get a semi-digital instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer and a digital screen for the rest of the information. The braking department is handled by a 300 mm disc brake at the front and 230 mm disc brake unit with single-piston calliper at the rear. A dual-channel ABS keeps the rider safe under hard braking over a wet or slippery surface.

Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 makes a value for money package for sports touring enthusiasts who have a limited budget but need power and great performance.

KTM RC 125

KTM RC 125 is another sports bike on the list which is specifically made for the entry-level young riders who are looking for a bike that is great for learning purpose. The RC 125 comes with top-notch equipment level making it one of the best handling bikes in this segment. Built around a steel trellis frame, the bike is light in weight and delivers excellent manoeuvrability.

The KTM RC 125 is powered by a liquid-cooled, 125cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine which also works on the 125 Duke in the same state of tune. This motor is designed to produce a max power of 14.3 bhp at 9250 rpm and 12 Nm at 8000 rpm. It is paired to a 6-speed gearbox which takes the bike to a top speed of 110 kmph.

Speaking about the performance, the RC 125 hit 100 kmph in around 20 seconds and the top speed is 110 to 115 kmph depending on the tailwind, inclines and the rider weight. Despite low-performance numbers, the bike is able to take on certain 150cc bikes and scooters. Still, a steep price tag is not justifiable for the performance offered by the RC 125.

Coming to the fuel efficiency, being powered by a small 125cc engine, the bike returns around 40 kmpl in mixed riding conditions which makes it a pocket-friendly bike for young riders or college students. An 11.5-litre fuel tank can easily provide a riding range of more than 400 km in a single tankful.

On the dashboard, you will find a small fully-digital instrument cluster with an array of information to the rider. However, the bike misses on track related features like lap timer, acceleration recorder, lean angle recorder, top speed recorder etc.

On the suspension front, there is a pair of USD forks at the front and monoshock at the rear. This setup is tuned for track riding and hence is on the stiffer side. It offers great handling and cornering ability but on the bad roads, things don’t go well with the rider.

The braking performance is taken care of by a large 300 mm front disc brake and 230 mm rear disc brake unit. This system is accompanied by a single-channel ABS for safer braking experience under challenging conditions.

Jawa Forty-Two

Up next we have Jawa Forty-Two which is a modern version of the retro Jawa bikes which were on sale decades ago. Jawa Forty-Two is a classic bike with various modern touches like blacked-out engine components and handlebar which is on the lower side to aid in city riding. The headlamp is a round unit with clear glass and the round analogue speedometer with a reverse sweep.

Powering the Forty-Two is a 293cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that churns out 27 bhp and 28 Nm of torque. These numbers are segment-leading and when coupled to a light kerb weight of just 170 kg, the bike offers lively performance and good city rideability. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox which is packed with well-spaced gear ratios for the comfortable city and highway riding.

The Forty-Two hit 100 kmph from standstill in around 14 seconds with the top speed in excess of 125 kmph. Speaking about the fuel efficiency, the single-cylinder engine returns an average of 33 kmpl in mixed riding conditions. When coupled to a 14-litre fuel tank, you can provide a riding range of over 450 km from a single tankful.

Coming to the features department, the bike barely offers anything substantial apart from an analogue speedometer and fuel gauge and a small digital odometer. A big let down is the lack of basic feature like trip meter which is essential for daily riding as well as for touring. The headlight is a halogen unit with clear glass for a modern look.

There is dual exhaust on the bike which makes the engine sound to act as from a 2-stroke engine albeit with less grunt. You get an option to increase or decrease the exhaust sound by 5-step adjustable baffles according to your taste.

The suspension system is comprised of telescopic forks and twin shock absorbers that are tuned towards a balanced setup that is comfortable for city rides. To stop the bike, there are disc brakes on both ends with dual-channel ABS. Also, there is an option for rear drum brake unit with single-channel ABS.

Royal Enfield Classic 350

Moving on to India’s most loved classic bike, the Royal Enfield Classic 350. It is a bike which is known for its signature loud thumping exhaust. The long-stroke engine is tuned for low-speed rideability as most of the engine torque is available right from 2000 rpm. Apart from that, the classic design, flat split seats, minimalistic features and classic spoked wheels are some essential elements that give a retro look to the bike.

The engine that propels the Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a long stroke motor with air-cooling and displaces 346cc. This BS6 powerplant now comes with electronic fuel injection system and breathes through a 2-valve head delivering a max power of 19.1 bhp at 5250 rpm and 28 Nm torque at 4000 rpm. A 5-speed gearbox is mated to the engine.

At this moment, the bike accelerates to 100 kmph in about 22 seconds and a top speed of around 110 kmph. There is a lot of vibration above 80 kmph which are not bearable on long rides. The bike is due to a comprehensive update with newly developed 350cc engine that we have already seen on the Meteor 350.

Coming to the fuel efficiency, the bike is able to return a mileage of about 40 kmpl in mixed riding conditions. This happened due to the addition of electronic fuel injection system which increased the fuel efficiency of the bike. A 13.5-litre fuel tank capacity, the bike returns a riding range of around 500 km from a single tankful.

You get around analogue speedometer and odometer with some tell-tales lights that have a low fuel light. The headlight unit is also a halogen unit with grounded glass for a retro touch. It comes with comfortable wide seat for the rider and split seat for the pillion.

The suspension is comprised of telescopic forks and twin shock suspension at the rear which is calibrated for city and highway usage that offers a comfortable ride. There are disc brakes on both ends with dual-channel ABS. If you are looking for a more affordable version of the Classic 350, you can opt for single-channel ABS version of the same.

There are many variants of the Classic 350 with different paint schemes that are exclusive to each variant.

Suzuki Gixxer 250

The Suzuki Gixxer 250 is a quarter-litre streetfighter motorcycle made for daily commutes and highway touring. It is a light quarter-litre naked bike with just 156 kg kerb weight and is well-sorted for all kinds of riders. The bike features a sharp design language with the swept up rear.

At the front, you get a flat LED headlight with minimum bodywork. The fuel tank is bulbous and muscular with extended tank shrouds that look sharper. The seat height is 800 mm which is good even for the short riders. For the rider, the seat offers ample space to move around during the ride.

Suzuki Gixxer 250 is powered by a single-cylinder, 249cc, liquid-cooled engine which is fed by an electronic fuel injection system and 4-valve head. This engine pumps out 26.1 bhp of power at 9300 rpm and 22.2 Nm twisting force at 7300 rpm. It is paired to a 6-speed transmission with well-spaced gearing for excellent rideability in the city and out on the highways.

The naked bike can deliver a mileage of around 35 kmpl in mixed riding conditions which is a great thing considering the amount of power generated by the engine. You get a 12-litre fuel tank capacity which can provide a riding range of nearly 400 km in a single tankful.

Coming to the features, the bike offers a fully digital instrument cluster with a negative LCD. This meter provides most of the information including a gear position indicator. What is missing in the cluster is a trip computer and Bluetooth connectivity which could have been a welcome point in the near future.

A pair of telescopic forks at the front and monoshock suspension at the rear is tuned to provide a balanced ride but with a certain level of stiffness that is not rider-friendly on the bad patches of roads. On the braking department, there is a 300 mm disc brake at the front and a smaller disc brake unit at the rear. This is accompanied by a dual-channel ABS for safer braking over wet and surface with loose grip.

Bajaj Dominar 250

Up next, we have Bajaj Dominar 250. It is a younger sibling to the 400cc Dominar that was first introduced as the hyper tourer. It is inspired by the design of Ducati Diavel and sports a unique LED headlight cluster with 8 separate LED beams. The overall design of the bike is that of a cruiser with long stance and offers an 800 mm seat height for all kinds of riders to fit in.

The bike is pretty hefty at 180 kg and some might find it hard to manoeuvre in the city traffic. Out on the highways, the Dominar 250 feels as if it is made to take on the highways. Dominar 250 is a potent highway tourer for those who are in a budget and need a power tourer with comfortable upright riding posture. The ergonomics of the Dominar are designed to ensure longer hours on the saddle without inducing pain in the rider’s body.

Powering the Dominar 250 is a liquid-cooled, 248.8cc, single-cylinder engine which is fed by an electronics fuel injection system. This powerplant pumps out 26.63 bhp at 8500 rpm and 23.5 Nm torque at 6500 rpm. The power and torque are developed at higher engine revs and hence, the bike would create problems while used in the city under 40 kmph considering the 180 kg kerb weight. You get a 6-speed transmission mated to this engine that is available with taller top gears to provide a better highway rideability and higher top speed.

Bajaj Dominar 250 is developed for entry to a medium level highway touring enthusiasts who need an affordable bike with respectable fuel economy to keep the petrol costs in check. The bike can return a mileage of around 33-35 km per litre in mixed riding conditions which is adequate for a bike of this size and weight. If you managed to extract 35 kmpl on the highways, the bike will provide a riding range of over 450 km in a single tankful before the 13-litre tank runs dry. In a bid to keep the range at a safe level, you should refuel after hitting 400 km mark since the last refuel.

The dashboard is a pretty good looking fully-digital unit with negative LCD design. The meter console offers a good range of information to the rider but a trip computer and a display on the fuel tank is missing when compared to the Dominar 400. For a touring bike, what is creating a buzz is the addition of Bluetooth connectivity and turn by turn navigation that makes rides to unknown places easier and safe.

Rest of the components used by the Dominar 250 is a pressed steel perimeter frame that provides super rigidity to the motorcycle and allows for confident cornering abilities. The suspension system is comprised of USD forks at the front and monoshock at the rear that is tuned for comfort on the long rides. To stop the bike on time without any drama, we get to see a 300 mm front disc brake unit from Bybre and 230 mm rear disc brake unit with callipers supplied by Bybre. You get a dual-channel ABS available for safer braking performance.

Jawa Standard

Jawa has another model in this list and it is none other than the iconic Jawa Standard retro-classic bike from the manufacturer. It is a chrome loaded version of the Jawa Forty-Two with plenty of aesthetic changes to make it look like a proper classic bike. It is priced at Rs 1.76 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi.

It is powered by the same 193cc, single-cylinder engine with liquid-cooling and 4-valve head. This fuel-injected engine makes 27 bhp of max power and 28 Nm of peak torque at unspecified engine revs. There is a 6-sped gearbox that handles the reduction duties and is great for highway rides.

The fuel efficiency of the bike is in the range of 32-34 kmpl in mixed riding conditions and is sufficient from a 300cc bike. The tank range will be around 420 km from its 14-litre fuel tank which is good for highway rides.

The Jawa Standard is packed with chrome everywhere whether it is the handlebar, engine components or exhaust. It appears to be a proper retro bike for everyday riding and long-distance touring. The ride sits comfortably upright with raised handlebars makes for a perfect rider’s triangle dedicated for long hauls without inducing pain in the body.

The bike features a unique reverse sweep speedometer and fuel gauge but only gets a digital odometer and not even the essentials like trip meters. There are tell-tale lights that complete the meter console with a retro feel to it.

The suspension system is comprised of telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear that is tuned to deliver a comfortable ride on the bad patches of roads and good straight-line stability on highway speeds.

Suzuki Gixxer SF 250

The fully-faired version of the Gixxer 250 is called the Gixxer SF 250. It is a sports bike that can be used for frequent touring on the highways with good cruising speed and adequate wind protection. It is developed with a track racing in mind and comes with a stiffer suspension setup that makes for a great cornering ability of the bike. However, being made on a diamond type frame, it cannot be pitted against the like of Yamaha R15 with deltabox frame and KTM RC 200 with a steel trellis frame.

As we have already talked about the Gixxer 250, the engine and powertrain of the Gixxer SF 250 is completely the same. It is powered by a 249cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine with 4-valve head and fuel injection. It develops 26.1 bhp at 9300 rpm and 22.2 Nm at 7300 rpm. This engine is paired to a 6-speed transmission with similar gear ratios.

What makes this bike different when compared to the Gixxer 250 is the presence of aerodynamic full fairing, wide-spreading LED headlight cluster, clip-on handlebars with a slight leaning riding posture. The seat height, seat design and pillion seat height remain the same. There is ample space for the rider but pillion will find difficulty on the pillion seat over long hours.

Speaking about the performance, the bike hit 100 kmph in around 9.5 seconds with top speed lying in the range of 150-155 kmph on the speedometer. The Gixxer SF 250 is a great bike for highway riding as you can easily munch the miles at 100 kmph all day long.

Suzuki’s patented oil-cooling system plays a vital role here with an excellent cooling mechanism with an electric fan for blowing excessive heat from the radiator. This system is unique when compared to all other oil-cooled engines that you find on the bikes.

As said earlier, the bike gets a stiffer suspension setup that is good for high-speed stability but you might need to slow down a bit on the bad patches of roads. There is enough grip from the 110 section front tyre and 150 section rear rubber. Braking is handled by disc brakes on both sides with dual-channel ABS for safer stopping.

The bike comes with oodles of Chrome and a long stoke engine which is smooth to tun without any creepy vibrations whatsoever.

There is a 374cc, ling-stroke, single-cylinder engine which powers this bike. It is a fuel-injected motor and develops 20.7 bhp at 6000 rpm and 29 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. A 5-speed gearbox does the reduction duties and offers taller top gears for stress-free mile-munching.
