Nostalgia has taken over our senses as we look back at the year gone by. The year 2014 brought us some really fun-to-ride motorcycles. And although 2015 has more surprises in store, we decided to bring out a list of the most read motorcycle reviews for 2014. So here is a list of 10 top read motorcycle reviews on Motoroids in 2014.
Bajaj Discover 150F/150S Review
Discovers in various avatars have swung by ever since Bajaj introduced them way back in 2004. Since then, Bajaj has been at it, tinkering the Discover over time to suit rapidly changing tastes of the commuting class. The new Discover 150 twins are Bajaj’s new jab at the premium commuter segment, and now form the flagship of the Discover lineup- the range now starts with the 100T and these new 150 twins top it off.

Hero MotoCorp 2014 Karizma ZMR Review
The phrase ‘Never judge a book by its cover’ stands true when it comes to the new 2014 Hero Karizma ZMR. From racing fighter jets to riding on the North Pole, the Karizma brand has come a long way. But, while the earlier model left an indelible mark on the hearts of the Indian motorcycling enthusiasts, the new variant wasn’t received with much fanfare because of its unconventional styling.

Hero MotoCorp Splendor Pro Classic Review
Having ridden the first generation Splendor for nearly eight years, I knew the motorcycle to the core. Even with its small engine size and commuter oriented performance, the Splendor Pro Classic managed to charm me with its unique styling and character. So ‘let’s get started’ about this “cafe” racer, as the tagline of a coffee brand reads. Read full review here>>>

Honda Activa 125 Review
A motorcycle with all its gears, the clutch, the heat from its engine is sometimes an annoyance – especially on a hot, humid day with jammed roads. A scooter on the other hand is a big respite from harassment in such conditions, something like the 2014 Honda Activa 125. With no gears, no clutch and no heat radiating onto the calves, it makes life much simpler. Read full review here>>>
KTM RC 200 Track Review
As humans, our minds are dictated by some unknown force to affiliate, like, remember and appreciate things which carry superlative adjectives before their names or things they accomplish. No wonder then, stack two things side-by-side and the one which attracts more words like better, stronger, faster and bigger in its favour is bound to pull more love in its field of gravity. It is a similar case with the KTM RC 200 and the 390. While both are dressed in similar space suits, the former isn’t much talked about or showered with attention as much as the latter.

KTM RC390 Review
The RC390 exceeded our expectations, and our heartiest congratulations to Bajaj and KTM for achieving the feat. And we are not averse to letting you know that right in the beginning of this review, as most of us knew it was inevitable. Join us for the amazing ride, in the following pages.

KTM RC390 vs KTM Duke 200 vs Kawasaki Ninja 300 comparo
You don’t have to travel too far back in time to remember, how we wished someone built a proper quarter litre motorcycle and presented it to us on a two wheeled platter. That time arrived, people were happy, soon got over their quarter life crisis and then the hunger games for more power took flight. It was the terrific trio of Bajaj, KTM and Kawasaki who acted as the wind beneath our wings and gave us machines like the Kawasaki Ninja 250 and the Duke twins.
We had the opportunity to stack the KTM RC390, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the KTM Duke 390 together and spend a sunny Sunday morning sampling out two of the best performance motorcycles made in India along with a Japanese twin cylinder machine. Read full comparison here>>>
Suzuki Gixxer 155 Review
We were quite surprised when, at the Auto Expo earlier this year, Suzuki Motorcycles India introduced us to their all-new 150cc offering with the name “Gixxer.” That’s right, not even a “150” suffix or prefix, just “Gixxer.” Short and snappy, but also evoking immediate throwbacks to one of the reigning kings of the litre-class superbikes – the mighty Suzuki GSX-R1000. So yeah, with a name like that, the Suzuki Gixxer does have some rather large boots to fill. Will it do so, or will it be a misfire for Suzuki’s product marketing and naming department?

Suzuki Inazuma GW250
When Suzuki introduced the B-King, it took the world by surprise. Here was a naked bike that had as much power as the fully-faired Hayabusa, an aerodynamic leviathan whose sole purpose in life is to defy the laws of physics. The styling was also brutal, more sinister than anything Suzuki has ever produced. It commanded respect. And it sold in droves.
But the fact that a product has become an unlikely success doesn’t guarantee that its derivative, whether larger or smaller, will emulate the same success. So, it was with some trepidation that I approached the Suzuki GW250 Inazuma. Like a surgeon’s scalpel, the Suzuki Inazuma is meant to do a particular job and, despite some hiccups, it does that remarkably well. Read full review here>>>
Suzuki Let’s Review
The Suzuki Let’s is the first all-new scooter from Suzuki Motorcycles India in a long time. Wait a second, what about the Swish 125, you ask? Good question, but the Swish was little more than the Suzuki Access 125 in a snazzier body, and that was launched way back in 2007, so there. Read full review here>>>
