The motorcycle is very refined & gives great fuel efficiency both in the city and on the highway.

The Need

Back in 2019, I started my first job as IT Professional and after a few months of office commutes on my beloved Shogun & Splendor, I decided to look for something newer, long-lasting & sporting recent hardware and at the same time was hassle-free and economical.

I have been using this bike for almost 3.5 years and the experience is mostly hassle-free and this bike has been a great reliable commuter and occasional tourer, especially during COVID and WFH days. It sits between the Honda CB Unicorn and the CB Hornet 160R, while trying to be a chimaera of sorts and that is where it loses out on, attempting to be the jack of all trades and master of none. Best ridden in the Urban Jungle, especially if you live in a Metro.

Shortlisted Bikes: Rs 1 Lakh Budget

  • Pulsar 150 Neon
  • Pulsar 125
  • Hero Glamour
  • Suzuki Gixxer 155 Carb

With the above money in hand, I started searching for bikes in the price bracket and the requirements were simple:

  • Front Disc (no optional)
  • 45-50kmpl average economy
  • Optional ABS
  • Long & Wider Seat
  • Good Headlight Visibility
  • Carb, no Fi.
