Best Touring Bikes Under Rs 2 Lakhs

By

Motorcycle touring can be fun and addictive, for it gives you the freedom to travel anywhere, even places that are inaccessible by most four-wheelers. Although it is possible to tour on any bike, if you want to do it comfortably without much trouble, it is crucial that you select the right bike. Ideally, bikes that have a comfortable riding posture, good ride quality, a powerful engine with loads of low-end torque, and sufficient wind protection are the ones that are best suited for touring long distances.

 

We’ve picked the best bikes available in India under Rs 2 lakhs that’ll help you tour the length and breadth of the country comfortably. Choose the one that falls within your budget, and start exploring!
