A tiny gadget that makes phone calls and take 'slofies'? Or a machine that can take you to the ends of the earth and back? Hmmm, tough choice, but we know what we'd pick any day

Dear Apple, 
As always, millions of people tuned to your annual event where you showcased “new” iPhones. And just like every other time, social media was on fire with some pretty creative memes aimed at the exorbitant price tag and the weird-looking triple camera setup. Opinions at the Zig HQ about your new flagship iPhone are split right now. But what we unanimously agree on is that most of us (being motorcycle enthusiasts, obviously) can buy an exciting set of wheels for ourselves and maybe even save some cash for a weekend trip instead of breaking the bank to buy the new iPhone. This isn’t something that we’ve pulled out of thin air. Allow us to prove it with a list of not three or four, but 11 two-wheelers that you could buy for much less than the price of an iPhone 11 Pro Max
(Rs 1.41 lakh for the 512GB variant). 

KTM 125 Duke (Rs 1.3 lakh):


Just like there are Apple fanatics in this world, there are KTM fanboys as well. And now, the Austrian bike maker has lowered the entry point for the Duke by introducing a 125cc version. Although it is quite expensive for a 125cc motorcycle, it packs enough punch to stay true to its KTM genes. 

Yamaha MT-15 (Rs 1.36 lakh):

If you want to buy an iPhone to up your Insta game, you could consider the Yamaha MT-15 as it will help you do the same thanks to its Terminator-like headlamps whilst saving you Rs 5,000! The MT-15 is not just eye-candy, mind you. The brilliant 155cc engine along with variable valve actuation (VVA) and a potent chassis make it a fine city-slicker

2019 Suzuki Gixxer SF (Rs 1.09 lakh):


The Suzuki Gixxer SF ticks all the right boxes for us. You don’t need to sell your kidney to buy one, it looks stunning, packs modern features and we were quite pleased with how it behaved at India’s only F1 track, the Buddh International Circuit. Yes, we rode a 150cc motorcycle on a race track. And yes, that experience will always be fun than taking selfies on the iPhone’s new wide-angle front camera.

Bajaj Pulsar 220F (Rs 1.07 lakh):


Although the Pulsar 220F has been around for quite a while, its design is still capable of turning heads. And it still has one of the best price-to-performance ratio in its segment. Couple that with its exceptionally powerful projector headlight, and it’s easy to see why the venerable 220F remains so popular to this day. The formula has worked so well for Bajaj that they’ve now made a 180cc version of the same.

Yamaha R15 V3.0 (Rs 1.42 lakh):


Why have we added another Yamaha to this list? Well, it’s not just any other Yamaha because it bears the legendary ‘R15’ name. For just Rs 1,000 or more, you could have the R15 V3.0, a brilliant track toy for beginners. What’s more, it performs quite well in the city too. Moreover, while the MT-15 gets a single-channel ABS, the fully-faired R15 gets a dual-channel unit!

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V (Rs 1.11 lakh):


With top-notch build quality, sophisticated cycle parts and a sweet 200cc motor that can push it to 117kmph, the Apache RTR 200 4V is still a champion in the 200cc naked motorcycle segment. It really is a distillation of TVS’ racing genes into a capable road-going machine that’s fun on a track as well. And what’s more, the current Race Edition even comes with a slipper-clutch too.

Hero XPulse 200 (Rs 97,000):


Imagine this. You are taking some splendid landscape shots for your Insta fam while covered in mud and suddenly you drop your phone. If it’s the new iPhone, you’d be devastated. But if you choose the Hero XPulse 200, playing in the mud becomes second nature. Need to wade through a small water body? Pffft, the XPulse can do that in a jiffy. Want to go across uneven surface? Bring it on. Going for an adventure trip with your buddy who’s got a Royal Enfield Himalayan? Err, we’ve done that too and here’s what happened.

Bajaj Avenger 220 (Rs 1.03 lakh):


If your number one priority is to go on a long trip and post pictures on social media with #wanderlust, then the Avenger 220 would do just fine for you. Priced at Rs 1.03 lakh (Rs 38,000 less than the iPhone 11 Pro Max), the 220cc engine has enough grunt to take you to different picturesque locations while the relaxed riding position will keep you comfortable as well. 

Aprilia SR 150 (Rs 76,000):


Yes, we get it. Not everyone wants to ride a motorcycle. For those, we have included the most powerful 150cc scooter on sale in India - the Aprilia SR 150. With impressive looks and sporty handling, the SR 150 is one of the most exciting scooters you can buy right now. Like with all scooters, it’s quite practical as well.

Ather 450 (Rs 1.13 lakh on-road):


The iPhone 11 Pro Max has tonnes of features but so does the Ather 450. The flagship electric scooter from the Bengaluru-based company has set the benchmark when it comes to electric two-wheelers thanks to its performance, build-quality and the overall level of engineering. And we have a strong feeling that the 450’s battery will last far longer than the iPhone’s.

Revolt RV400 (Rs 3,999 per month):


If you are planning to buy your iPhone via EMI, then the Revolt RV400 should be right up your alley. All you have to do is pay Rs 4,000 per month of 37 months and you not only get to own India’s first electric motorcycle, but the company will also replace your brake fluid and pads thrice and the tyres once.
