TVS finally launched its first-ever scrambler motorcycle, the Ronin. It’s priced at Rs 1.49 lakh onwards and goes all the way up to Rs 1,68,750 (both ex-showroom Delhi) for the top-of-the-line model. However, if are looking for other alternatives to it, then here’s the list.
Bajaj Pulsar RS200
The Bajaj Pulsar RS200 has been around for a while now and seems to have struck the right strings for enthusiasts. It retails at Rs 1,70,067 (ex-showroom Delhi) and packs a single-cylinder 200cc liquid-cooled engine. The output figures are 24.2bhp and 18.7Nm. It gets an LED headlight, taillight and turn indicators. Bajaj offers the Pulsar RS 200 in three colours: Burnt Red, Pewter Grey and White.
KTM 125 Duke
The smallest displacement offering in the lineup, KTM 125 Duke too could be an option if you are a fan of team Orange. It retails at Rs 1,74,342 and is one of the highest-selling models in the Austrian brand’s portfolio. The baby streetfighter packs a 125cc liquid-cooled engine and it belts out 14.3bhp and 12Nm. It gets LED illumination and a fully digital instrument cluster. Not to mention, like the Ronin, the KTM 125 Duke too gets USD forks.
Bajaj Dominar 250
Retailing at Rs 1,75,002 (ex-showroom Delhi), the Bajaj Dominar 250 is quite a promising product. It’s powered by the KTM-sourced 250cc liquid-cooled motor with the output rated at 26.63 bhp and 23.5 Nm. The Dominar 250 also gets touring accessories like a smoked windscreen, handle guards, rear luggage rack and a phone mount too. It gets LED illumination, digital instrumentation and even USD forks, which add to its commendable value for money.
Yamaha R15 V4
Priced at Rs 1,77,400 (ex-showroom Delhi), the R15 V4 tends to offer a completely different experience than the TVS scrambler. It packs a 155 single-cylinder motor with VVA, dishing out 18.14bhp and 14.2Nm. Not to mention, its aggressive riding posture is better suited for track/spirited riding. The Yamaha R15 V4 even offers quite some features like a fully digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity, traction control and even a quickshifter for the Racing Blue colour.
If you are looking for a retro offering for a similar asking price, the Jawa 42 can be a viable option. It retails at Rs 1,78,357 (ex-showroom Delhi) and is equipped with a 293cc single-cylinder engine developing 26.95 bhp and 27.02. The overall retro-styling looks quite desirable and the features compliment it well. For reference, the single pod analogue display.
