It’s been a long time coming for the motorcycling enthusiast in India, but we think the time has finally come when the bikes one could only ogle at earlier are now increasingly within reach. What triggered this shift in the market was the announcement of the Garware-Hyosung range of motorcycles, the Harley-Davidson 883 SuperLow and also, the Bajaj-Kawasaki Ninja 650R — all of them tempting the motorcycling crowds with sub-Rs 6 lakh price tags. Great deals indeed, especially since you had to cough up north of Rs 10 lakh to buy into the premium motorcycle market earlier! And the market hasn’t lost even a bit of momentum yet — there’s more on offer now than ever before. Here then, are some incredible motorcycles you can buy without irreparably damaging your financial health.

DUC TALES - DUCATI MONSTER 795

You can tell the times are good for the motorcycling enthusiast when there’s a Ducati on sale for hatchback money. It’s called the Ducati Monster 795 and even though it’s de-specced slightly, it’s still a proper Ducati. For the Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom) that you pay, you get a throbbing Desmodromic 803cc L-Twin engine connected to two big, booming underseat exhausts, a chrome-moly trellis frame, Marzocchi USD forks, a Sachs monoshock at the back connected to a double-sided swingarm and Pirelli tyres. Doesn’t exactly sound like ‘cost cutting’, does it? You get 86 bhp to play with, along with a thick, wide torque band for street-friendly performance. And we don’t even need to mention the oh-so-gorgeous Italian styling. Tempted?
