Looking for a bike that gives you the much loved adrenaline rush, charismatic design combined with brilliant performance? Here are top five budget-friendly performance bikes in India.
1. Yamaha YZF-R15 V2.0 (Rs. 1.18 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi)
Yamaha R15 Version 2.0 is powered by a single cylinder 149.8cc, 4-stroke engine capable to generate 16.8 Bhp at 8500 rpm and torque of 15 Nm at 7500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Due to its world-class performance and lightweight body weighing 136 kg, it is a popular bike in this segment. You would not experience heavy vibrations till 8500 rpm which suggests that the engine is quite refined. The bike has a top speed of 131 kmph and can sprint from 0-100km/hour in 13.07 seconds. It returns mileage of 35 kmpl in city and 45 kmpl on highway.
The wheelbase of 1345 mm and wide tyres of the bike are responsible for a safe ride and good grip. The front and rear of the bike are fitted with disc brakes along with telescopic suspension in front and linked type mono-cross in rear. Yamaha R15 features the first ever sporty stance in premium bikes in India. Its aerodynamic design offers a comfortable position to the rider and the low seat height of 800 mm gives more confidence to the rider. However, the downside of the bike is unavailability of ABS even as an option and an uncomfortable seating position for the pillion rider.
