Top 7 Adventure Bikes In India! – Price Under Budget

Long distance touring on a motorcycle is gaining huge popularity among Indian youths in recent years. And why not, it is more fun on a two-wheeler.

From the scenic and equally dangerous hilly roads of the south to the snowy and landslides-prone, yet mesmerizingly picturesque Rohtang La Pass in the north. Adrenaline junkies in India have some of the world’s most challenging roads to conquer. To do so, you need a comfortable bike. And that is exactly why adventure bike sales are on a rise now.

We present you, Top 7 adventure bikes in India. –

7. Hero Xpulse 200

adventure bikes to buy in India
Hero Xpulse 200

Hero Xpulse 200 is the most affordable bike on our list at ₹ 1.23 Lakh. Hence, there is not much we can say about it. Hero Xpulse seems to be the younger sibling of Hero Impulse, which is a completely off-road focussed bike. Impulse was truly ahead of its time, the country wasn’t ready for such a product then. Xpulse has hand guards, bash-plate and mud flaps to give it a dirt bike look. Other than that, it sports alloy wheels which is a downside.

6. BMW G 310 GS

BMW G 310 GS

BMW G 310 GS is light, great for commuting and gives a good economy. With the 19-inch Metzeler Tourance dual-purpose tyre and the 41 mm gold upside down forks, it definitely looks the part of a typical ADV. But it has alloy wheels, and not as many techs as we associate with a GS. After all its the ‘baby’ GS. Price – 3.49 Lakhs.

5. Kawasaki Versys X 300

Kawasaki Versys X 300

One thing about the Kawasaki Versys X 300 is that, it is overpriced for a 300cc adventure tourer. It borrows the same engine from a Ninja 300, but costs 90,000 more than a Ninja 300. But the bike is more than capable of handling touring, off-roading and commuting effortlessly. It has a price of Rs. 4,69,000. It packs features that others in this segment don’t, such as a massive fuel tank and liquid cooling.

4. KTM 390 Adventure

Ktm 390 adventure

KTM 390 Adventure is very exciting prospect in the sub-5 lakhs range. It isn’t as big as one would like it to be, especially with just 17″ tyres and 200mm ground clearance, but it is packed with features such as cornering ABS, traction control, modern TFT instrumentation which shows oil and battery status, split LED headlights and adjustable front screen. It is most suitable for commuting and highway touring with a slight bit of off-roading.

3. Royal Enfield Himalayan

RE Himalayan adventure tourer
RE Himalayan

The Royal Enfield Himalayan ticks the right boxes when it comes to adventure bikes. Ample amount of torque, high ground clearance, spoked wheels and 21 inch off-roading front tyres. Although on a little heavier side with 190 Kg of kerb weight. RE has never been too keen on technologies, but the Himalayan has a switchable ABS. Himalayan lets you munch long distances and off-roading with ease and your daily commute. Overall, a value for money bike. It has a wide range of accessories to make the experience even richer.

2. Benelli TRK 502

Best touring bike Benelli
Benelli TRK 502

The Benelli TRK 502 looks really, really good! The front end, beak like protruding, 50mm front forks and transformers like LED headlights give it a muscular look. Low seat height, metal-bash plate, totally steals the show on any road. At an on-road price of Rs. 5.52 Lakhs. It might not be nimble inside the city, because of its weight, but for long distance touring, it seems perfect.
