What are the best bikes you can get under Rs. 70,000 – 75,000 – 80,000 in India?
Motorbikes in India are available in different price range. People with most basic commuting needs are usually comfortable below 50k rupees price range, whereas the enthusiast people mostly go with the best bikes under 80,000 rupees price base because that’s where the price and performance meets together.
Some people would probably wonder, what’s the core difference between the motorbikes in 70-80k rupees range and the motorbikes in 40-50k rupees range? The engine displacement seem to be quite the same or maybe a difference of 25 cc is there, 50 cc at most. Every other spec appears to be identical in raw eyes, why does the price vary so much? Well, though the displacement remains same, the power figure changes. The maximum power output could be significantly higher even on two motorbikes with same displacement figures. Maybe a 150 cc bike would provide 13 bhp of raw power, whereas another one with a similar 150 cc engine could provide almost 18 bhp of raw power output. With higher amount of raw power, the acceleration gets better and in most cases, these motorbikes include one additional gear in the manual gear transmission summing up a total of 6 gears. That’s where the difference in price point comes from, that is how a motorbike jumps from the 50 thousand rupees segment to the 80 thousand rupees segment. However, in either cases the motorbikes are still in entry level of each segment.
