5. Hero Impulse

This is the first bike in India to have off-road abilities. Although not much is different from a regular motorcycle, what is truly unique about the Impulse is the way it can handle bad roads and take the road less travelled. The high seating and the macho looks make it a desirable machine.

Factor in the price, which is slightly higher than other 150cc bikes and you will know why the Impulse is a worthy option for our crater filled roads.

4. Honda CBR250R

This bike came and started the performance bike revolution. There were no affordable 250cc bikes before the CBR250R came along and now we see more manufacturers looking to challenge Honda. What is truly amazing about the CBR250R is its stunning looks and refined engine.

The 250cc mill produces 25 BHP of power and the CBR250R is a comfortable machine for those looking to munch miles on the weekends.

The ABS brakes are a segment first and the new HRC red white blue tri-colour make it all the more desirable machine to own.

3. Yamaha R15 Version 2.0

If there is one bike which defies gravity, this is it. The R15 version 2.0 has the show to match its go and even though it posses a 150cc mill, the machine offers thrills which bigger capacity bikes just cannot. The mini R15's looks and razor sharp handling make it one of the best machine to own.

While the sharp brakes and high revving engine make people go crazy for this machine, with just 17 PS of power, the R15's light weight makes it a force to reckon with.

2. KTM Duke 200

KTMs very first model for India, the Duke 200 is a shocker of sorts. The pricing is extremely aggressive and the bike looks the part. The naked styling, orange colour and wide rear tyre can't be ignored. While the awesome 200cc engine produces good power of 25 BHP and is always on the prowl.

A range of KTM power wear and power parts make this bike a very involving experience. A premium brand in Europe, the Duke 200 is indeed one of the coolest on the roads.

1. Royal Enfield Classic 500 Desert Storm

The desirability of cruisers is, no doubt, unmatchable. The Classic 500 is one such cruiser that is so desirable that it commands a waiting period in excess of four months in some cities. The reason is simple: retro design marries modern technology. The C500 uses a 500cc EFI engine which produces 27 BHP of power and a neck wrenching 41.3 Nm of torque.

The coolest part of this bike is the Desert Storm's colour, which gives it an altogether different aura, making it the most amazing machine on Indian roads today.
