Under INR 2 Lakh: Retro Styled Motorcycles You Can Buy In India

|

Retro never goes out of fashion. What was considered charming then, holds its ground, even now. In the motorcycling universe, retro never ever left and its popularity has only increased many folds. No wonder brands like Jawa are being resuscitated, Royal Enfields still sell like hot cakes, and people are ready to pay a bomb for used examples of things like the RX-100 and the RD 350. Equipped with modern kit these days and styled to please you and your father alike, here are all the retro-styled motorcycles you can buy in India under INR 2 Lakh.

Royal Enfield Bullet 350

Starting with the most popular name, the Bullet 350 is a machine that would take you back to a time when motorcycles were simple to ride and easy to repair and maintain. Now equipped with a fuel injected engine, the motor is known for the good amount of torque available. Keeping things retro styled, the Bullet 350 does not come with an electric starter, you have to kick it to crank it up.

Another variant of the Classic 350, the Gunmetal Grey comes with a single saddle with springs for added comfort. Although you can get a pillion seat as an option, we would rather recommend using that space to tie your bags and take this bike along with you on a postcard journey across the country.
