A simple list of the best options on the block -
1. KTM RC 200
With fantastic build quality and a design to kill for; this bike makes a great entry to the list. It is a beauty of a bike for Indian roads with a 4 valve, DOHC single cylinder powered by 199.5cc and 25 BHP. Well powered for our roads to say the least. The finish quality is fantastic and a mileage of 27kmpl is good too. With really great acceleration (0-60 in 3.8seconds), it does make a great push from the start. Effortless riding would be the best way to describe it; the ride is very smooth and gives you great road presence. Retailing at just under Rs 2Lakhs, it is on the higher side of the market.
2. KTM Duke 200
1. Very similar in specs as compared to the RC 200, but a completely different design. The naked feel on the bike is a brilliant change in itself and turned out to be an instant hit in the market. With an improved mileage of 34 kmpl, the bike is a far more productive bike. One of the reasons is the reduced kerb weight as in comparison with the RC 200. Another reason for the fantastic pickup on the sport bike is the steel frame chassis. With a telescopic fork in front, there is a strong balance on the bike even during bad roads. The ABS variant is a superb option too as it keeps you right on the safe side of the road during a quick ride. With a price of Rs 1.45 Lakhs on road in Mumbai, it is less stress on the wallet too.
3. Yamaha R 15
4. Honda CBR 250R
1. We all had huge expectations out of this bike we heard it was launching first and that was one of the reasons it performed so well at the start. With a 250cc engine giving out 25 BHP of power, the bike does have great acceleration on the road. With ABS as well as disc brakes on front and rear, it is quite stable too. A mileage of 35 kmpl and a price of Rs. 1.65 (ex-showroom Delhi) is the downside though.
