Four wheeler move the body, but two-wheelers move the soul-that's a saying many of us have heard and some who even live by it.
So with all the two-wheeler manufacturers in India, some of them have been around for a long time, but failed to become that popular amongst motorcycle riders but some have entered late and captured the heart of millions.
So what are the most popular two-wheeler brands in India? Well, here it is-Top 10 most popular two-wheeler brands in India:
At number 10 is Japanese motorcycle maker Kawasaki. The brand currently sells motorcycles that are 250 cc upwards. The recently launched engineering marvel, the H2 supercharged motorcycle has also landed on our shores.
9. Royal Enfield:
At number nine is the world's oldest motorcycle maker in business—Royal Enfield. Two engine displacements that were bulletproof and a design that carried on for years not only attracted buyers but made many think the brand was a religion to be followed.
Austrian motorcycle maker KTM takes the eighth spot. KTM's single-cylinder motorcycles have even proved capable of outpowering their four-cylinder counterparts with similar displacement. If performance is the game, KTM is the hunter.
At number 7 is another Japanese motorcycle maker, Suzuki. The best seller for Suzuki in India are its scooters and the Hyabusa. The company's attempt to capture the quarter-litre class performance segment with the Inazuma don't go as planned. Never the less, it is still one of the favourite brands in India.
Harley's came and took over the market by storm. The company has brought the American culture to India and people accepted it with arms wide open. Open roads, wind in your face and the sweet sound of thunderous V-Twins. What more could one want?
Currently selling scooters marketed as lifestyle products, Vespa is attracting a lot of people. Youngsters who want to own a retro classic with modern day technology look nothing further than the Vespa. Priced more than other scooters in its category, it offers good power and attracts attention too.
Bajaj is presently selling motorcycles with a lot of design features. They range from mere commuter segment motorcycles to fully faired performance oriented motorcycle like the RS 200. The company also kick started the small displacement adventure segment in India with the AS series.
Again, a Japanese brand that sells two-wheelers ranging from scooters, all the way to 1000cc sport bikes. The FZ series is one of Yamaha's best selling models in India and its little performance motorcycle, the R15 is pretty well selling too, which took the entry level performance segment to a whole new level.
2. Hero MotoCorp:
Hero MotoCorp, India's largest motorcycle maker takes the second spot in the list of top 10 most exciting two-wheeler brands. The Splendor has for a long time been the best selling model for the company as well as India's best selling motorcycle. Fuel economy is unbeatable, but other brands think it is exaggerated.
Honda has to be the most exciting two-wheeler brand in India, solely because its best seller is a scooter that is competing with motorcycles. Launching the Activa was the company's major strength. Smooth, fuel efficient and reliable. The company also offers performance oriented 150cc and 250cc motorcycles, along with its top of the line range available in India.
