We usually try our best to judge two-wheelers by looking at their spec sheet before forming an opinion about them or while making a purchase decision. However, the real capabilities of bikes can only be estimated after riding them. After all, the proof of the pudding is always in eating it. Interestingly, we ate, and tested, quite a bit of stuff in 2022. While food is a discussion for another day, here are this year’s five most popular two-wheeler reviews of BikeWale.
5. 2022 Bajaj Dominar 400: 1500km Touring Review
The new Bajaj Dominar 400 comes equipped with a couple of touring accessories as standard. After doing the first ride review of the motorcycle, we weren’t fully satisfied and wanted to test it over a longer distance. It is touted as a power cruiser, after all. Hence, we rode the bike to our favourite destination, Goa, and the touring review was referred to by a healthy number of netizens.
4. Royal Enfield Hunter 350: First Ride Review
This doesn’t come as a surprise as the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 was one of the most anticipated motorcycles of 2022. The most affordable, youth-oriented RE had started creating quite a buzz on the internet way before it was launched. So, the incredible views that its first ride review garnered were expected.
3. Yamaha R15 V4: Road Test Review
Yamaha’s 155cc offerings are undoubtedly the brand’s most popular products since they deliver exactly what people expect from the Japanese brand – something fast and exciting. The R15 V4 is the epitome of that with its 155cc mill being way too potent for its displacement. It’s also extremely desirable in terms of design, features, and handling. These aspects have made it a hit in India, especially amongst young riders, and that’s the prime reason for it being in the third position on this list.
2. TVS Ronin: First Ride Review
Closely following the R15 in this list is the TVS Ronin. An unusual combination of cruiser, scrambler, and roadster-inspired styling, the Ronin is trying to be a jack of all trades. It’s TVS’ take on a modern-classic offering with the intention to go up against the likes of Royal Enfield and Jawa. So, should you consider buying it? Read the detailed review to find out.
1. Yamaha MT-15 Version 2.0: Road Test Review
The Yamaha R15’s naked sibling, the MT 15 V2, is another representation of the brand’s philosophy of offering fun-to-ride motorcycles. Such is the popularity of the MT 15 in India that its road test review turned out to be the most-read two-wheeler review of BikeWale in 2022. Garnering views of well over a lakh, it surpassed the views of the ride report of its fully-faired iteration by a huge margin.
