Suggest a Good Commuter


I need your advice. I am looking for a good family commuter bike. I personally prefer a racer kind of bike, like the old R15 that I own. I was planning to buy the new model but I can’t buy it due to its split seat. I am looking for a good bike with a single long seat. Thought of the Bullet. My budget is around Rs 1.5 lakh.

Dear Shashank,

“Family commuter” isn’t really a segment or even a concept. All motorcycle­s can only seat two persons and that includes you as the rider. We would never recommend that more than two people sit astride a motorcycle under any circumstan­ce. With that in mind, if you want something that is still sporty but not as much as the R15, you may consider the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF. Both these are the faired style of bikes and within your budget. However, they all come with a split seat. If a flat seat is an absolute requiremen­t, the entry-level Royal Enfield Bullet 350 will also fit within your budget.
