The reason we’re so in love with motorcycles is the feeling of the air whipping against our face and the rush of adrenaline through our veins. And once the rush subsides, there is a sense of peace and calm that remains. The best thing about riding a motorbike is that nothing is holding us back, there is nothing between us and the sky.
Since motorcycle prices can vary wildly, I am going to give you a list of top five racing bikes in India under the price of 10 lakh.
Harley Davidson Street Rod
The Street Rod has a re-worked engine and better braking from its twin, Street 750. It looks nothing like the Street 750, with the seating more designed like a street bike. The chassis has been reworked to change it from a lazy cruiser to a street bike with a sporty look and gives the rider a race-track-like experience. The engine revs about 9000rpm to provide an output power of 68bhp and torque of 64Nm. The 750cc V-twin uses twin-port fuel injection now. This bike is easy to lean on when there are turns, and its stability is excellent. It is available in three colors; olive gold, charcoal denim, vivid black.
Price- 5.86 lakh
BMW G 310 GS
This bike has a robust design specifically meant to give the rider an adventure-filled experience whether you are riding it to work or college. It will make people turn their heads to its high-quality design elements that are highlighted from the GS look. The one-cylinder, 4-stroke engine configuration is ensured to give 313ccm and a power of 34hp at 9500rpm. The chassis has a tubular steel frame with a bolted rear frame.
Expected Price- 3 lakh
Honda CBR650F 2017
Honda’s updated CBR 650 F is BS-IV compliant, and also gets a plethora of upgrades over the older model. It uses a 649cc in-line four cylinder engine that is capable of producing a maximum power of 90bhp at 11000rpm and peak torque of 60.5Nm at 8500rpm. Its engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox that comes with a Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) system for its four throttle body sensors. The engine is capable of thrusting from 0 to 100kmph in under four seconds. The main attraction of this bike is its minimalistic look.
Price- 7.3 lakh
Kawasaki Z900 ABS
The 948cc, 4-stroke in-line four engine produces a power of 124bhp with peak torque of 100Nm at 7700rpm. Its silky smooth power delivery facilitates control which in turn gives the rider complete comfort and makes it manageable. The chassis is lightweight and weighs 13.5kg. The new gear ratios are likely to offer better mid-range and top end to give you the best of both worlds.
Price- 8.14 lakh
Ducati Scrambler Café Racer
Its two valves per cylinder, L-twin air-cooled engine produces a power of 73hp at 8250rpm and a torque of 67Nm at 5750rpm. The engine is tuned so that the rider can experience its street riding potential. Its chassis is a tubular steel Trellis frame. The Café Racer is available in black coffee color and is designed to remind you of the Rockers who once sped through the streets of the English capital.
Price- 8.28 lakh
