In 2021, several motorcycles were launched in India. However, there are only a few motorcycles that managed to woo us In 2021, the Indian two-wheeler industry received several new motorcycles from Indian manufacturers and foreign makers. While all the launched motorcycles are pretty good, some of them managed to woo us an extra bit. Therefore, in this article, we have compiled a list of the best motorcycles that India received in 2021. Note that this article is an opinion piece, and the motorcycles mentioned in the list are our pick. A lot of the readers may not agree with our picks but at the same time, a small majority may agree. If an individual is planning to purchase a motorcycle in the coming days, this article could help that individual reach a decision. Pulsar N250, the biggest Pulsar from Bajaj that offers decent performance The new Pulsar N250 is not a hooligan, and it was never meant to be. Bajaj launched the motorcycle based on an all-new platform that offers decent performance. The 249cc unit mated to a five-speed gearbox makes 24.5PS of power and a torque of 21.5Nm; enough for daily city commuting and occasional extensive tours. Not to forget, it has a slipper and clutch assist. TVS Raider 125, a small motorcycle with too many premium features How can we not talk about the TVS Raider? A 125cc motorcycle that makes a top speed of around 117 kilometres per hour, along with tons of premium features, deserves a place. The motorcycle is equipped with an LCD cluster that shows numerous information and in the 125cc segment; it offers two riding modes; power and eco. The motorcycle also features a start/stop system. TVS Apache 310, meant for the track junkies The 300cc-400cc sports motorcycle segment was once ruled by the KTM RC390. However, the Apache 310 continuously improved itself and in 2021, it turned into a super motorcycle. The 2021 edition’s engine is untouched, but one can purchase the motorcycle with a more race-focused racing kit for an additional INR 12,000. Not to overlook, there is also the dynamic kit that makes subtle changes to how the motorcycle rides. Last but not the least, we should also like to mention the 2022 KTM ADV 390 and the brand-new Yamaha R15.
