Top 10 Sports Bikes in India List (2019)

Buying a sports bike is a dream that everyone wants to achieve at least once in their lifetime. The feeling that you get while cruising down the highway, maneuvering through traffic, and cornering on sharp turns is quite hard to beat.

In saying that buying a sports bike is an extremely crucial decision. I mean, with so many options available, it can get a bit strenuous to choose the one that suits your personality and does not burn a hole in your pocket at the same time.  

That’s why we have decided to compile a list of top 10 sports bikes in India, under 2 lakhs, that are worth every penny you spend. Go through the list and pick the most suitable bike as per your style. 

So, without any further ado, let’s jump into the list.

1. Bajaj Dominar 400

Ex-Showroom Price-1.42-1.56 Lakhs

At first, hearing the specifications of this machine might make it look too good to be true, but once you ride the bike, you’ll understand that Bajaj has done a great job with this mid-range sports cruiser. 

Equipped with a 373.3CC massive liquid-cooled and fuelled engine, the Bajaj Dominar is a beast that’s designed to dominate the India roads. To make your rides safer, Bajaj has also thrown in dual channel ABS support, even on the standard variant. 

As far as the mileage is concerned, the Bajaj Dominar gives an average of 30kmpl on the highway. It means that the bike is perfect for daily commute as well as weekend rides with your friends.

2. KTM RC 200

ex-Showroom Price-1.9 Lakhs

There’s no arguing the fact that KTM is ruling the entry-level sports bike market in India. The bike lineups from KTM quickly took over the Indian market back in 2013 and since then KTM has become the strongest dealership of the sports bike network. 

The RC 200 is a decent entry-level sports bike with a massive 199.5CC engine. If you compare RC to other 200 CC bikes, it has got the biggest engine among all. However, that’s not the only reason to buy the KTM RC 200. 

Despite having a 200CC engine, the bike can give a tough competition even to bikes that have a slightly higher engine. The 6-speed gearbox, along with sharp aerodynamics make it fairly easy to ride RC 200 even at higher speeds.

The only thing that’s missing from the RC 200 is dual-channel ABS support, but that’s a tradeoff one can easily live with. In case you are looking for a decent sports bike in India, the KTM RC 200 is the right option.

3. Honda CBR 250R

If you are looking for sports bikes below 2 lakhs, Honda CBR 250 is worth checking. The sturdy design and comfortable seating make Honda CBR 250 one of the best sports bikes in India that can also be used for long rides and daily commuting. 

The bike has a liquid-cooled 249.5 CC engine that produces a maximum of 26.15 BHP and 22.9 Nm torque, making it easier to touch the top speeds while cruising down the highway. The best feature about Honda CBR is its remarkable mileage. The bike can give anywhere between 35-40kmpl on highways.

4. Bajaj Pulsar RS 200

ex-Showroom Price-1.4 Lakhs

A list of top sports bikes in India cannot be completed unless it has a Pulsar in it. The Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 is what you call a perfect combination of speed, comfort, and safety. A 199.5 CC engine, that is capable of producing 24.16BHP and 18.6Nm, backs up the powerful performance of Pulsar RS 200. 

Talking about the mileage, the RS 200 can give anywhere between 30-35kmpl on highway and 25-30 within the city. So, for people who are looking for affordable sports bike that can still cruise at high speeds, Bajaj Pulsar Rs 200 seems like the perfect fit.

5. Suzuki Gixxer SF

ex-Showroom Price-1.1 Lakhs

The Suzuki Gixxer SF is a 150CC entry-level sports bike that is the perfect option for people who are looking for inexpensive yet powerful sports cruiser. 

Despite having a relatively smaller engine, the Gixxer SF can easily do top speeds of 120-140km/hr. 

Suzuki has also done a great job by throwing in some advanced features like updated digital instrument console, split seats, and a full-LED headlamp. Seems like Suzuki is doing everything to attract potential buyers!!

6. KTM Duke 200

ex-Showroom Price-1.6 Lakhs

The Duke 200 is the mean sibling of the sophisticated KTM RC 200. Basically, if you are looking for a bike having a ‘naked’ look that can outperform other sports bikes, KTM Duke 200 is the right fit. 

The bike also comes with a single-channel ABS variant, which means that you can stay assured that you’ll be safe even when riding on high speeds. Although considering its power, KTM should have given a dual-channel ABS option as well.

7. KTM Duke 125

ex-Showroom Price-1.19 Lakhs

Finally, the youngest sibling of the KTM family is here. I would like to say that the Duke 125 was one of the most anticipated bikes in 2018. However, when it finally got launched, it surely became a head-turner within a short time period. 

Even though the bike doesn’t have fancy features like its elder siblings, it is definitely the right choice for people who are looking for an entry-level sports bike. However, KTM has been quite kind by slipping in single-channel ABS feature.

8. Yamaha YZF R15 V3

ex-Showroom Price-1.4 Lakhs

Yamaha R15 is a bike that became a legacy the moment it was launched back in 2011 in India. In 2019, Yamaha has still maintained the same reputation by launching the Yamaha YZF R15 V3. 

Having a 155 CC engine, the R15 V3 produces a maximum power of 19BHP and 14.7Nm, the R15 is capable of touching a top speed of 150 km/h. It means that R15 V3 is the only 150 CC bike that can outperform all its competitors in the market.

9. KTM RC 125

ex-Showroom Price-1.4 Lakhs

After the Duke 125 became a big success in the market, KTM decided to launch a 125 CC variant for the RC family as well. Now, I am not sure if anyone in India would pay 1.4 lakhs for a bike that only has 125 CC engine, but one thing’s for sure, the bike is a head-turner. 

In fact, RC 125 is the only 125 CC bike with such an aggressive look. If one never knew already, one would never think that the bike only has a 125 CC engine under the hood. Apart from a fancy look, the bike also has a single-channel ABS support, projector headlamps, and LED DRLs.

Yamaha FZ 25

ex-Showroom Price-1.1 Lakhs

Yamaha FZ-25 is one of Yamaha’s top-selling motorcycles in India. Within four months of its launch, more than 12,000 units of the bike were sold. The bike is a suitable option for people who want to ride at top speed but don’t like the uncomfortable seating position of a sports bike. 

Under the hood, the bike contains a 259.4 CC engine that is capable of producing 20.69 BHP and 20 NM. The build quality on the bike is top-notch, giving it a masculine look.
