- Royal Enfield Interceptor 650
The Chennai based motorcycle maker launched the new Interceptor 650 in the Indian market a few weeks back and it was introduced at a price tag of Rs 2.50 lakh (ex-Showroom, India). Two things which really made the interceptor 650 one of the most brilliant bikes on the list is the fact that it is the most affordable 650cc twin bike in the country, and it is also one of the most practical big capacity cruisers you can buy with your eyes closed.

From sharing the same chassis and the engine platform to costing similar as its twin cousin, the big capacity café racer from Royal Enfield is giving all the big brands such as Harley-Davidson and Triumph Motorcycles a run for their money. It retails at Rs 2.65 (ex-showroom, Gurgaon).
- Kawasaki Ninja 650
The green machine maker from Japan updated the Ninja 650 for the year 2017 and came up with the new gen Ninja 650. The new Ninja was updated from head to toe.

It currently retails at around Rs 5 lakh (ex-showroom, Gurgaon)
