BikeWale team has a special place in their hearts for touring motorcycles. Because we love travelling and exploring and the best tool do that is with tourers. Luckily, over the past couple of months, the Indian market has been blessed with some incredible touring motorcycles, and the best part is, they have some really good displacement that helps us cover miles with ease. Here, we’ve compiled a list of three top tourers that we’ve tested over the last couple of months. Check it out.
This isn’t just a regular tourer. The Benelli 600GT is special out of the three because it is powered by an inline-four engine and we Indians have a thing for inline-fours. They sound really good and that’s the deciding factor for some of us, if not most. With a massive fuel tank capacity, coupled with a wide seat, the Benelli 600GT is the most affordable inline-four touring motorcycle one can buy in India. Check what we had to say about the Benelli 600GT.
Kawasaki Versys 650
Tall stance, comfortable wide seats, proven parallel twin engine and a brilliant suspension setup has made the Kawasaki Versys 650 one of the most tempting bikes to buy in India. And with the inclusion of anti-lock braking system (ABS), it’s quite safe too. With growing adventure seekers and motorcyclists in India, the Versys 650 is the first bike in their list and it should be.

Ducati Multistrada 1200 S
