Top selling bikes in India

  • The Hero Splendor Plus has been one of, if not the, most iconic motorcycles in India. The motorcycle has, over the years, proved its worth by being the reliable motorcycle that it is. However, with Honda no more in the picture, we are quite curious to know how the model sustains in the coming years, especially with the growing competition. Out of the models mentioned here, the Bajaj makes for a good choice if you are on a budget. But if you are looking for a motorcycle apart from the Hero Splendor Plus, we recommend you to look at the TVS Sport, which offers a lot more premiumness and features while just being marginally more expensive than the Bajaj.
  • Although the upgrade to LED headlights and the semi-digital console on the newer generation Honda Activa can’t be termed as a generation upgrade, it is crucial towards strengthening the Activa’s position in the Indian two-wheeler market further. Otherwise, the TVS Jupiter comes across as a more premium offering, considering the level of comfort, refinement, quality and practical features on offer. That said, we are certain that the Activa brand will continue to maintain its position as the best-selling scooter in India, owing to the name it has made for itself over the past decade.
  • Hero HF Deluxe

    Rs. 39,400 Onwards

    • 97.2 cc
    • 82.9 kmpl
    • Petrol
    Hero has not only made a name for itself but has also become the go-to brand for most commuter buyers. The Bajaj CT 100 comes across as a promising product for someone on a budget in that segment, as it offers all of the above that HF Deluxe does, without spending the additional buck. The TVS Sport, on the other hand, offers a lot more as it brings a dash of style to the segment with its colour combinations and design. The engine on the TVS also feels as refined as the Hero does and offers a lot more mileage as claimed by ARAI. Moreover, with an equally large network and service cost, it comes across as better value for money.
  • Honda CB Shine

    Rs. 58,097 Onwards

    • 124.73 cc
    • 65 kmpl
    • Petrol
    There is no doubt that the Honda CB Shine manages to excel in India. It has been the highest selling 125cc motorcycle in India for ages and the main reason is the Honda badge of reliability. At Rs 63,316 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the CBS and disc variant, the Shine offers fantastic value for money.
  • The Bajaj Pulsar 150 still remains a great option if you’re looking for an entry-level 150cc motorcycle. The motor offers likeable performance with a hint of brashness which made the Pulsar brand so popular among the youth, and being a Bajaj offering, it has been priced aggressively as well. The styling could have been better and build quality in the long run needs to improve, but it still remains a well-rounded motorcycle.
  • The Pulsar NS200 comes across as a well-rounded package that can efficiently take on almost every kind of task required. Be it charging into corners, riding flat out on highways or manage daily chores with ease, the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 makes a strong case for itself. It offers good grunt, stopping power and well-balanced ergonomics which makes it an all-rounder.
  • The Bajaj Pulsar 220F, despite its age, still remains a value for money motorcycle, given the performance and features it has on offer. The motor isn’t the most refined one out there, but will plaster a grin on your face with its grunt. All in all, it still remains an aspirational motorcycle for Indian buyers.
  • The Hero Glamour has finally received the cosmetic and mechanical updates that it always deserved. For a slight premium over the existing model, the new Glamour makes for a great motorcycle to have on your shortlist for a sensible and reasonable commuter.
  • While we haven’t ridden the Bajaj Platina 110 CBS, we did get a chance to test a version of the exact same motor on the Discover 110. Though the engine isn’t the torquiest in its segment, it felt tractable and refined. Furthermore, the inclusion of CBS, new graphics, a bigger motor and a nifty little footrest designed for children have made the bike all the more appealing. Not to mention, a price tag of Rs 49,300 (ex-showroom, Pune) places it bang in between its competitors.
