Top 10 best mileage bikes of India

Bikes that offer both conveniences -- speed and space

Manufacturers of motorcycles in lower or commuter segments are mainly focused on increasing the mileage of the bikes as much as possible to attract more new motorcycle buyers. In the Indian two-wheeler market largely catering to first-time motorcycle buyers and those with a budget of not more than INR 65-70,000, bikes that are fuel efficient and deliver higher mileage become really important. Media India Group lists the Top 10 best mileage bikes in India.

Having dominated the world of motorcycle manufacturing for eight years, India slipped back to number two slot in the world, behind China, in 2021, due to a sustained slowdown in the market. India is also one of the largest exporters of motorcycles in the world.

Having peaked in 2018 at almost 25 million units, the two-wheeler production in India fell consistently to reach a volume of 15.2 million units Last year. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 42.2 Million Units by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 18.6 pc during 2022-2027. At their peak two-wheelers outsold cars in India by almost 6.8:1.

One of the key reasons behind the wide gap between the motorcycles and cars is that motorcycles are affordable and it is considered a utilitarian vehicle rather than a lifestyle choice. As most people in India cannot afford to spend too much money on a car, they go with bikes and it offers both conveniences in terms of speed and space. Also, since motorcycles are more manoeuvrable, one can escape most of the traffic jams commonly found on Indian roads.

Another big factor in making people go for two-wheelers rather than four-wheelers is the extremely high fuel cost, which has scaled new peaks almost every year for the past several years and as cars are fuel guzzlers as compared to motorcycles, most budget-conscious customers would settle for two-wheelers, even if a four-wheeler is more suitable vehicle for them. High maintenance costs of cars clinch the case for two-wheelers. But fuel remains perhaps the single most important factor behind the choice.

Keeping these factors in mind, here is a list of 10 most fuel-efficient motorcycles, curated by Media India Group, that an Indian can go for.
