Best Streetfighter Bikes in India, Under INR 2 Lakhs

Added in: Features

The sub-2 lakh segment is quite an interesting one, as it is filled with the list of super-affordable, fast and agile bikes. Even though these bikes fall under the category of commuter motorcycles, they are still considered as a class representing outright performance motorcycles. The best thing about this segment is the variety of motorcycles available in this price bracket. But, the all-time public favourite is the streetfighter bike range. 250cc motorcycles are the leaders in this segment, but there are a few 150cc bikes and 200cc bikes along with a 400cc bike which can outperform them.
