Top 5 Most Underrated Two-Wheelers In India | February 2021
A good product doesn’t guarantee market success
Over the last decade the two wheeler market grown rapidly in India. We now have variant models to have, which has created a new group of the enthusiasts. As there is a abundant variety to select one, few dont even get appreciation like they deserve. Here we have a list of five underrated two wheelers. Which should ofcourse get more appreciation and sales as they deserve.
5. TVS Radeon BS6
Price – Standard Self with Alloy: Rs 62,037
Commuter Bike of the Year (Drum): Rs 65,037
Commuter Bike of the Year (Disc): Rs 68,037
Firstly we have TVS Radeon. It was designed and developed to compete in the 110cc motorcycle space and consume Hero’s market share. It did consume, but not much as the expectations by the TVS. Even though it was better than the Hero Splendor in terms of build quality, refinement, features, also performace. But the bike still was neglected. Splendor is really a good bike in its own way, but the Radeon is simply better.
4. TVS Scooty Zest BS6
Price – Himalayan Highs Series: Rs 60,304
Matte Series: Rs 61,360
Although being the least selling scooters from TVS the TVS Scooty Zest has a lot of prospects. For instance, take the engine. The same 109.7cc single-cylinder that powers the Jupiter. However it is tuned and it will give more power to Zest. Part in Zest’s wieght of just 103kg and you get a power-to-weight ratio of 75.82PS/ton against the Jupiter’s 69PS/ton. The ways it handles- its light, quick to turn in, and weaves through city traffic easily. The Zest deserves your appreciation, and is a good choice if you want to have an easy going, feature-rich and a fun to ride 110cc scooter.
3. Suzuki Burgman Street
Price – Standard: Rs 84,371
Bluetooth Rs: 87,871
Among the 125cc segment the Suzuki Access 125 is ruling. Besides its success, the company has introduced the Burgman Street 125 in 2018. It had a great start, after collecting sales by the tens of thousands. But now it manages about only 2000 to 3000 units a month.
As per capability it should be one of the best selling scooters in the market considering its all round performance, refinement, and fuel efficiency while offering a steady ride. Nevertheless its the most spacious scooter you can get among the recent scooter section.
2. Suzuki Gixxer and Gixxer 250
Price – Rs 1,18,370 and Rs 1,69,371
By launching the Gixxer back in 2014 Suzuki got a visible change. Full of character and a chassis that was ever so inborn also appears as a young, mascular and featured a potent 155cc engine. Winning multiple bike-of-the-year awards its totally a fun motorcycle.
Even though having exact same blueprint as BS6 models it never got the masses as the earlier models got. Same goes for the Gixxer 250,which justifies its delay. Being powerful, gets premium equipment, and handles like a dream. Also doesnt breaks your bank.
1. TVS Apache RR 310 BS6
Price – Rs 2,48,020
Interfering the overall riding experience due to its engine gruffness and vibrations, most people may neglect the Apache RR 310. But there are differences.
TVS took more steps to ensure that the BS6 update irons out most imperfections of the bike. The motorcycle maintains all the positives while facing all it imperfections. The effortless nature of the motor makes it more pleasant, and the stickier rubber and the crispier throttle make it more amusing on the track. The all new full-colour TFT display in not just a marketing strategy,it works fairly. Adding functionality and convenience, upping the superior result with the Riding Modes.
