Best Cruiser Bikes in India
Indians purchase as many as 20 million units of two-wheelers, every year. However, the cruisers bikes in India somehow get overlooked. That being said, this low sales volume does not stop this niche subdivision from being one of the most promising bike segments. Cruisers are the very definition of style, pride and comfort, and their looks alone are capable of causing havoc on the highways, as they roar past the other vehicles. This is the very reason that bike enthusiasts are willing to shell out exorbitantly high sums of money to get one of these beastly cruiser bikes in India into their garage.
Harley Davidson Cruiser Bikes
Harley Davidson bikes remain one of the best cruiser bikes in India and worldwide, and is closely followed by the likes of Triumph and the famous Indian Royal Enfield. Harley Davidson ventured into the Indian markets quite late, i.e., in 2009, but has ever since managed to carve out a dedicated set of loyal customers and enthusiasts. The leading cruiser bike manufacturer has a basket of close to 13 motorcycles to choose from. The Harley Davidson Street is the entry-level model with a 750 cc engine that produces 53 bhp power and is priced at Rs. 5.14 Lakh. The most expensive model is none other than the Harley Davidson Road Glide Special, priced at a whopping Rs. 33 Lakh. The model boasts of a high-performance 1200 cc engine. The middle range has a lot of options to choose from, namely the Iron 883, the Fat Boy, the Roadster and the Fat Bob.
Regal Raptor Cruiser Bikes
China-based motorcycle manufacturer, Regal Raptor has quietly and quickly risen through the ranks to become one of the most popular brands of cruiser bikes in India. With their robust build up and impressive price point, these bikes will continue to make inroads into this segment. Currently, it has three aces up its sleeve in the form of the Regal Raptor DD350E-9B, the Daytona and the Bobber, modestly priced at Rs. 2.96 Lakh, Rs. 3.33 Lakh and Rs. 3.22 Lakh, respectively.
Triumph Cruiser Bikes
Triumph, the second largest player among the best cruiser bikes in India, has recently rolled out its latest iteration of the iconic Thunderbird and Street Triple, which complement its already impressive lineup of adventure tourers and café racers. The pricing for their range of bikes starts from Rs. 7.7 Lakh and extends up to Rs. 17 Lakh. Triumph is also in the process of launching its all new cruiser Scramble 1200 in November in the Indian market.
Royal Enfield Cruiser Bikes
Last but not the least, the iconic Royal Enfield has fielded the Bullet 350, Thunderbird 350X and the recently-introduced Himalayan priced between a reasonable Rs. 1 to 1.7 Lakh, which is greatly appealing to the budget-conscious, middle-class segment, which wants to have a feel of the Cruiser experience.
The marketing initiatives and social media campaigns undertaken by the brands along with the rise of a biker boy culture in India is slowly making the cruiser segment a rage among the adventure seeking youth of India.
