The Bajaj Pulsar 150 is the highest selling 150cc commuter bike in India. Despite it being long in the tooth, the combination of muscular style, good fuel efficiency and value for money makes it an extremely popular motorcycle in the two-wheeler market.
The YZF-R15 changed the 150cc segment in the Indian market the way the CBZ did when it was launched. It was an everyday motorcycle that could genuinely be used as a trackday tool. The second version of the R15 traded practicality for more focused performance, but the advent of the KTM RC200 meant that a far better performance was available for the sportbike enthusiasts at a similar price. The R15 Version 3.0 reduces that gap significantly with technology. On the list is now a BS6 engine with a few more ccs, but featuring variable valve timing which takes the maximum power output to nearly 18.3bhp with a peak torque output of 14.1Nm. It also gets all-LED lamps and an all-digital LCD instrument cluster that displays a wealth of information, including when the Variable Valve Actuation switches to the different camshaft profile.
The FZ is the model that revived Yamaha’s fortunes in India, and since its launch, it has been the gold standard for the 150cc sporty commuter, as far as the sales figures are concerned. It offered a number of new technologies like radial tyres and a centralised fuel tank, at the time of its launch. It is also one of the pioneers of fuel injection, having made the entire FZ range FI at a time when its competitors were still depending heavily on carburetted variants.
The Passion Pro is a stylish commuter motorcycle in Hero’s portfolio which is based on the same platform as its highly-popular model, the Splendor iSmart 110. The BS6 version of the bike doesn’t just get a revised engine but also flaunts a refreshed design while packing new features and tweaked hardware.
The Honda Activa 6G is the newest generation of the company’s highest selling model that is available in two variants - Standard and Deluxe. The scooter retains the overall styling of the previous model although with slight tweaks to its bodywork and chrome embellishments on the front apron.
The Bullet 350 is Royal Enfield’s oldest and entry-level offering that is available in three different variants. The standard model features the original old-school Royal Enfield badging with kick starter. Meanwhile, the X models are available with kick starter and electric starter both along with other cosmetic changes over the standard variant which make them look slightly more modern.
The BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 retains the same classic-inspired design and styling of the previous model. However, it is available in new paint schemes that differentiate it from the previous model. There is the Stealth Black, Chrome Black, Signals Airborne Blue, Signals Stormrider Sand, Gunmetal Grey and Classic Black colour options. Furthermore, the Stealth Black and Gunmetal Grey colours are equipped with alloy wheels as standard while the other variants sport spoke wheels.
Aprilia is a brand that has a rich racing heritage, and the company is applying that to the SR150 – it is a sporty scooter whose introductory pricing is not premium at all. A part of the Piaggio Group along with the Vespa brand, the Aprilia SR150 is targeted at the youth who have performance and style as top priorities.
The Honda Grazia is to the Dio what the Activa 125 is to the regular Activa. It occupies a space alongside the Activa 125 that caters to the younger generation. The focus of the scooter is on generating more excitement rather than focusing on practicality. As such, it gets aggressive styling with ‘motoscooter’ looks which got sharper and edgier with the BS6 update.
