250cc Bikes You Can Buy in India (2019 Price List)
Complete List of 250cc Bikes in India: The quarter-litre segment was once the bestseller for sportbike lovers in India. Soon as the demand for power increased, the brands started moving into the 300cc segment by increasing the displacement of their existing engines. Yamaha made R3 out of the R25 while CBR250R gave birth to the South Asian-spec CBR300R.
The trend was similar among both single and twin cylinder engines. Even Kawasaki did the same move and introduced the Ninja 300 after limited the Ninja 250 into displacement-sensitive markets. The most popular 250cc motorcycle of India is Yamaha FZ25. The engine is shared among the FZ and Fazer version, leaving the brand with common sales figure for both the body types.
Apart from these two, KTM Duke 250 and Honda CBR250R are other two bestsellers of this segment. After these four, the lesser-known names like Hyosung GT250RC and FB Mondial Hipster are also available for India. The only 250cc motorcycle from Kawasaki (Z250) is listed on the official website but as per the dealers, the brand has discontinued the Z250 in India and will launch the Z400 in coming months.
Benelli was a known name in this segment before the discontinuation of TNT 25 from the country. The first four names listed here offer impressive value for money and affordable maintenance costs while others are limited to certain units for their exclusive presence in certain cities and lower overall output. Apart from these, only KTM is expected to launch a quarter-litre RC sportbike based on the same engine as Duke 250 in the year 2019. It can be priced around INR 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom).
