There is a growing demand in the under 5 lakh segments as more riders a becoming mature and are looking for an upgrade to there small capacity premium bikes which they bought a few years ago. The bikes that are available in this segment offer an extreme level of premium appeal without breaking your bank.

The bikes in this list offer better value for money to their customers when compared to the other middleweight bikes with a price tag above Rs 5 lakh mark. Also, these bikes work as an intermediate step for those riders whose ultimate goal is to get a litre class bike such as Triumphs, Z900 and Kawasaki Ninja 1000.

At present, this segment is lacking bikes due to the postponed plans of a number of manufacturers from launching their bikes due to the pandemic. As things are picking up pace, the manufacturers are announcing the launches in the near future.

Check out the new bikes under Rs 5 lakh in India in 2020-21 that are available for purchase or are in pre-booking phase.

Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 Chrome

The first bike in this list is the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 in Mister Clean variant. Yes, it is a sub-3 lakh bike but the topmost variant with full Chrome paint scheme makes it a costly affair. The bike is priced at Rs 3.06 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi.

GT 650 is a Café Racer motorcycle with a classic design language that relates it from the bikes of the yesteryears. It is made on the platform of the Interceptor 650 roadster motorcycle. The Chennai based motorcycle manufacturer has developed this café racer for the riders with café racer instincts and who are most likely to ride in the city and take the bike for occasional weekend getaways.

The café racer is a bike which is made on the classic motorcycle platform and offers committed riding posture. When compared to the Interceptor 650, the Continental comes equipped with a pair of clip-on handlebars and are lower set for a sporty riding posture. The rider has to slightly lean forward to grab the handlebars which might be uncomfortable for some people. However, the riding posture is nowhere committed to that of Yamaha R15 or the RC series if bikes from KTM and is liveable for daily riding.

The Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 is propelled by a butter-smooth twin-cylinder, 648cc, air and oil-cooled engine which is fuelled by an electronic fuel injection system. This powerplant gets an 8-valve head with 4 valves dedicated for each cylinder. This mill generates 47 bhp of max power at 7250 rpm and 52 Nm 5250 rpm which are more than adequate for most riders. A 6-speed gearbox deals with the transmission duties and is connected to the engine providing well-spaced gears ratios for the optimum city and highway riding capability.

Coming to the performance, the Continental GT 650 shoots itself from 0 to 100 kmph in just 7 seconds and has a true top speed of 160 kmph, that’s 100 miles per hour. Out on the highways, one can easily cruise at 100 kmph all day long without overheating the engine as the motor is cooled by a large oil-cooling radiator.

The instrument cluster on the bike is pretty basic but adequate. You get twin-pod semi-digital cluster with analogue speedometer and tachometer along with a small LCD screen offering odometer, trip meter and fuel gauge. A series of tell-tale lights complete the dashboard. At present, the company is not offering any kind of advanced features with this bike such as Bluetooth connectivity, TFT display or LED headlight.

We expect Royal Enfield to provide Bluetooth enabled tripper navigation system in the near future that we have seen on the Meteor 350. Apart from that, a hazard light switch will also be wholeheartedly welcomed if Chennai based manufacturer thinks about it. The headlight is a round unit with a halogen bulb and a taillight is also a halogen unit.

There is a pair of telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. This setup is tuned to offer a balanced ride and provides comfortable riding experience over the bad patches of roads and not to forget, it offers good high-speed stability. The bike’s high kerb weight of 198 kg offers excellent stability in a straight line without getting affected by crosswinds.

In the braking department, the Continental GT 650 offers excellent braking performance as it is equipped with 300 mm disc at the front which is gripped by 4-piston calliper and at the rear, a 240 mm disc unit is present with single-piston calliper. For better safety, the bike is equipped with a dual-channel ABS that will prevent the wheels from locking under hard braking over slippery road surfaces.

If you want to customise you Continental GT 650, there is a piece of good news for you as the company is offering a range of accessories and customisation options for the bike. You can get yourself fly screens, bar-end mirrors, machined aluminium parts, touring seat, pillion seat, pillion seat cowl which converts the bike into a single-seater, engine guards, leg guards and more.

KTM 390 Adventure

Up next, we have KTM 390 Adventure. It is one of the best adventure bikes on sale in India under Rs 5 lakh. It offers staggering 42 bhp of power and weighs in at 172 kg which translates into great power to weight ratio. There are many advanced features available on this bike and thus justify all the premium it demands over the 390 Duke streetfighter motorcycle.

For making it a true adventure bike, the Austrian company has added long-travel suspension at the front and the rear. The USD forks at the front have 170 mm wheel travel while the rear monoshock provides 177 mm of rear-wheel travel. This setup is on the comfortable side and the bike also offers excellent high-speed stability. This time, a KTM bike is good to ride over the bad roads as well.

The higher suspension setup has increased the ground clearance to 200 mm which is sufficient for mild off-roading. However, other adventure bikes which are placed lower than the 390 Adventure such as Himalayan and the Xpulse 200 have 220 mm of ground clearance and larger 21-inch front wheel. 390 Adventure, on the other hand, offers only a 19-inch front wheel and is equipped with alloy wheels instead of cheaper and stronger spoke wheels for off-roading. As there are alloy wheels present on the bike, you get the benefit of tubeless tyres.

At the core of the KTM 390 Adventure, you get a 373.2cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. This motor can pump out 42.9 bhp of power at 9000 rpm and a peak torque of 37 Nm at 7000 rpm. There is a 6-speed transmission on offer which is connected to the engine via a slipper clutch. The gearbox comes with taller gearing which makes it a good highway tourer but only a mediocre off-roader as there is no torque available at lower engine revs.

The KTM 390 Adventure is equipped with many advanced electronic rider aids and safety features. These are – a bi-directional quick shifter, dual-channel ABS, IMU-based cornering ABS, Traction Control, IMU-based cornering traction control and ride by wire technology.

All these features are made to keep the ride safe in all kinds of situations. If you are applying brakes while still in a corner, the cornering ABS will avoid any kind of wheel slips and will help in maintaining your line of attack. The work of traction control is to prevent any wheel spin when accelerating hard and the cornering traction control feature will avoid wheel spins while exiting from a corner. A bi-directional quick shifter will allow the rider to change the gears without operating the clutch which will be handy while taking on challenging off-road situations.

Coming to the fuel efficiency, the KTM 390 Adventure can deliver a mileage of in the range of 32-33 kmpl which is great for a 42 bhp touring machine. If you are easy with the throttle, you can even achieve 34 kmpl figure on the highway rides. The fuel tank can hold 14.5 litres of fuel which can help run the bike for about 470 km in single tankful. All in all, you can extract a range of over 450 km on the highways if you maintain sane speeds. In the city riding conditions, mileage of the 390 Adventure is quite low at 25 kmpl reducing the range drastically to 350-360 km.

Coming to the instrumentation, the 390 Adventure is fitted with a colourful 5-inch TFT instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. In the meter console, you get a speedometer, tachometer, odometer, trip meters, fuel gauge, engine temperature gauge instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, distance to empty, gear position indicator and much more. There is an option to access turn by turn navigation on the dashboard, but for that, you need to purchase a separate KTM mobile app.

The KTM 390 Adventure is developed for hardcore off-road enthusiasts as well as those people who are looking for a thrilling and dynamically accurate motorcycle for long-distance touring. However, the company should have provided an option for spoke wheels especially for the off-roading enthusiasts as alloy wheels tend to break under the extreme impact that arises on the off-road riding.

Ultraviolette F77

We have an electric sports bike in this list and it is the Ultraviolette F77. At present, you can pre-book the bike as sales are few months ahead in the calendar year. Once launched, the F77 will be priced between Rs 3 to 3.25 lakh ex-showroom, Bengaluru.

Ultraviolette is an electric two-wheeler star-up based in Bengaluru and is funded by TVS Motor Company which is the main USP of the brand itself. The start-up is working on developing India’s first ever electric sports bike that will go against the like of KTM 250 Duke and Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen 250 bikes.

The F77 has a stunning futuristic design language with full fairing and hidden front forks. It is built around a steel trellis frame with the battery pack installed where there is an engine on a regular motorcycle. It gets full LED lighting which shouts for its premium appeal.

At the heart of the F77, you get to see a permanent magnet AC Motor which develops maximum power of 25 kW which translates into 33.5 bhp at 2250 rpm. The torque at the motor is rated at 90 Nm and it comes up right from the Zero rpm. With a total reduction of 5 is to 1, the torque at the rear wheel is staggering 450 Nm which is the reason for the insane acceleration of the bike.

This motor is fitted to the chassis under the rider’s seat and the monoshock. The power is sent to the rear wheel via X-ring chain drive setup. There is a single speed gearbox which is continuously connected to the motor. You don’t have to change any gear on this bike. All you need to do is twist the throttle when you want to move and press the brakes when you want to stop.

The power to the motor is supplied by a 4.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which comes in set of three with each module holding 1.4 kWh of charge. You can get a range from 130 to 150 km from a single charge as per claims made by the company. In the real world, you can get anywhere around 100 km range from a single charge that too, in eco mode.

The battery is removable and you can remove all three 1.4 kWh battery modules by opening the motorised battery holder via a smartphone app. Once connected, you can tap a button and open the bay door to remove the battery to portable charging.

Coming to the performance, the Ultraviolette F77 can hit the 100 kmph from 0 in just 7.5 seconds with 60 kmph coming up in mere 2.9 seconds. The top speed of the bike is claimed at 147 kmph which is on par with many 200 to 250 cc bikes. Once launched, the F77 will be the most powerful and sporty electric bike to be ever launched in the country.

Speaking about the ride dynamics, the bike features short rake angle of 23.5 degrees which is great for city rides and race track. There are USD forks at the front and pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. The ride is leaned towards a stiffer side as F77 is designed to tackle the corners.

On the dashboard, you will be welcomed by a colourful TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity. You can connect your smartphone with the console and get all the data related to the bike at your fingertips. There are rides modes as well which will change the behaviour of the bike and range as well.

You get 320 mm disc brake at the front with radially mounted callipers and 230 mm disc brake at the rear with single-piston calliper. A dual-channel ABS is available for keeping the wheels from locking under extreme braking conditions.

Benelli TRK 502

Finally, we have Benelli TRK 502 which is the latest BS6 bike from the Benelli India. It is a road-biased adventure tourer bike specially designed to ride on the highways with utmost comfort over long distances. Benelli TRK 502 is priced at Rs 4.79 lakh ex-showroom, New Delhi and is a bit cheaper than the BS4 version.

The Benelli TRK 502 gets maximum components to make it a perfect middle-weight touring bike in the country. There is a large windshield visor which will deflect all thew annoying windblast at higher speeds and will make the ride comfortable over long distances. The handlebar is raised high enough for the rider to grab them without leaning towards them. This ensures that a rider won’t have to look for tea breaks while munching miles. The seats are now well-padded when compared to the BS4 version of the bike.

Powering the Benelli TRK 502 is a twin-cylinder engine which displaces 500ccc and is cooled by liquid-cooling system. The fuelling is done by electronic fuel injection system and the engine breathes through 8-valve DOHC head for greater efficiency. This powerplant churns out a max power of 46.8 bhp at 8500 rpm and peak twisting force of 46 Nm arrives at 6000 rpm. There is a 6-speed gearbox attached to the engine which is tuned to highway rides.

TRK 502 is an easy to ride bike and you can also ride the touring machine through city traffic. Coming to the performance, the bike does 0 to 100 kmph in about 7 seconds with a top speed of around 160 kmph. Since the top speed is high at 160 kph, you can effortlessly cruise at 100 kmph all day long, thanks to the smooth-revving twin-cylinder engine which is maintained at optimum level by liquid-cooling technology.

The fuel efficiency of the Benelli TRK 502 is between 22 to 25 km per litre on the highways and the city rides might bring down the fuel economy to 20 kmpl levels. It comes with a large 20-litre fuel tank capacity which will ensure a range of more than 450 km in a single tankful making the bike ideal for long-distance touring.

Coming to the instrument cluster, the bike features a semi-digital meter console which has an analogue tachometer with a white background. On the right side of the tachometer, there is an LCD screen which displays rest of the information like speedometer, odometer, trip meters, digital clock, fuel gauge, engine temperature gauge among other indicators. We sorely missed the absence of a trip computer which would tell us instantaneous and average fuel efficiency as well as a distance-to-empty readout.

With all that money spent to buy the middle-weight adventure bike but you don’t get a full-colour TFT screen, trip computer and Bluetooth connectivity which is a let-down from the house of Benelli. The headlight is twin-pod set up but comes with halogen bulb only. There is no option from the company for the modern and useful LED headlight.

The bike weighs at 235 kg which is on the heavier side but comes with practical elements for adventure touring. You get a large front head with a high beak to cover the bike from the slashes of dirt and mud. This BS6 variant of the TRK 502 is equipped with aluminium knuckle protector which is handy in case you are riding in the winters. There is engine and frame guard attached to protect the engine and body panels in case of a fall. The bike is also equipped with mounted for the rear top box and panniers or saddlebags which aids in increasing the luggage capacity.

Coming to the suspension, the bike is equipped with USD forks at the front and monoshock at the rear which is tuned to provide maximum comfort and high-speed stability. The braking duties are performed by dual 320 mm disc brakes at the front and a single 260 mm disc brake at the rear. For added safety, there is a dual-channel ABS on offer that will avoid wheel locks under emergency braking.

If you are looking for an ideal middle-weight adventure bike for your touring requirements, then Benelli TRK 502 is a perfect bet.
