These are some of the higher and lower capacity rivals for 20-250 cc segments bike, with around same price tag. So if you are willing for torquey cruises rather than Bajaj Avenger, RE gives you Classic and the Bullet 350 with the same engine capacity with quite different ergonomics, style, features and prices. Also its rival Jawa offers you a more powerful engine with liquid cooling which will not be heating issue for all-day cruising, but comes with little more price.

Besides all these motorcycles there is only one Adventure Sport under 2 Lakh rupees, RE Himalayan, and if you want to start off-roading this one is the best bike for you, which lets you switch off the rear wheel ABS and drift around the terrain saddling on it.

Keep aside these torquey motors and you want to pick a commuter, tourer and powerful machine in affordable price with loads of electronics and features to offer, then you should be looking at Bajaj Dominar 400. The sport-tourer with great ergonomics to tour around the country with accessible service anywhere possible and at an affordable price.

If you want entry-level track machine with commuting features and also cannot afford the premium RC 200, then Yamaha have made you the room for it. Decade-old performance Japanese toy will give you R1 DNA around the corners and with the slipper clutch on offer you can downshift without any hesitation.

CARBURETOR VS FUEL INJECTION, EXPLAINED!!

Carburetor was equipped for the petrol engine in 1872 by Siegfried Marcus. So simplistic design is still used in some of the lower capacity commuters.  Until then in 1980 fuel injections took over carburetor, first they were been equipped to performance motorcycle, later after decades, almost every premium motorcycle is equipped with FI (Fuel Injection) system. So while the good old school still swear for reliability, tune-ability, and serviceability of carburetor, newer believe that FI is better in every way.
