Do you recall a movement that started on 21st May of this year, 2020? Did I confuse you?
Some of you might have guessed already but let me be more transparent.
Yes, it is all about the “Vocal for Local” concept initiated and popularly spoken by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During the latest address made by PM Modi to the nation and people, he discussed the current ongoing pandemic situation caused by COVID-19, lockdown, and economic crisis. Alongside, he pointed out the importance of “self-reliance” and outlined his vision of initiating the “Made in India” strategy that concentrates on the use of locally produced products.
It isn’t his first talk on this subject. The PM has already spoken on a little in the past that paved the way for world-class products.
So, today, we noted down a few high-class motorbike models in the motorbike community with a huge hit-score.
Best Made in India Motorbikes
Here are the five best motorbikes made in India that well suit the concept of “Vocal for Local.”
Hero XPulse 200
As the first best motorbike from the Indian motorbike community, we have XPulse 200 from Hero’s house that performs very well after the Hero Impulse.
- Recognized as the “Indian Motorcycle of the year”, XPulse 200 is the best choice for a beginner, a rider, and a city street racer.
- This all-terrain motorbike comes powered by XSENS 200cc oil-cooled engine, smartphone connectivity, full LED headlamps, and single-channel ABS.
- One cannot doubt about suspension offered by XPulse 200 it comes with 190mm mono-shock suspension suited for long-travel smooth ride irrespective of a pit or a rock.
Bajaj Dominar 400
You will never hold back your excitement once you take a look at this all-new Dominar 400 that is the greatest accomplishment made by “The World’s favorite Indian,” Bajaj.
- Although Bajaj is one of the largest three-wheeler manufacturers, its motorbike, Dominar 400, has a particular market position. It has the same explosive engine used in KTM Duke 390.
- Twin barrel exhaust, twin-channel ABS, 29.4 KW power, and up-side-down (USD) forks are the must-to-mentioned features incorporated in Dominar 400.
- The 373.3 cc DOHC engine, graphic scheme, and rugged muscular look make it worthy of INR 1,94,000!
Royal Enfield 650 Twins
I always knew that Royal Enfield is one of your favorite motorbike brands known for pride and royalty so, we have brought Interceptor 650 on the list today that is the UK’s top-selling motorcycle.
- Interceptor 650 is a retro charm that is a native and a combination look of both continental GT and Café Racer.
- Although design varies visually and ergonomically, they share the same 648cc parallel-twin engine with superior balance, durability, and handling.
- High-precise Bosch fuel injection system and EMS tune results offer excellent throttle response when it comes to technology.
TVS Apache RR 310
Being one of the populist versions in the two-wheeler community, Apache has gathered a vast follower and been a main-stay in the TVS motorbikes’ stable.
- Apache RR 310, more importantly, is a birth-child of top brands partnership, TVS, and BMW Motorrad maybe that is why it stands unique on the crowd.
- Apache RR 310 is the fantastic Apache model based on the Akula concept with rigorous testing, development, and outstanding technology crafting.
- Another important note regarding Apache RR 310 is that it is the winner-up of the “Best concept bike of Auto Expo 2016.”
- Dual-channel ABS, race-tuned slipper clutch, inclined DOHC engine, advanced aerodynamics, gill vents, and race-tuned KYB suspension are the added advantage.
Our last guest of honor on the list today is Pulsar, a stronghold of the Bajaj family.
- Six models are present in the Pulsar model list, starting from Pulsar 125 to Pulsar RS 200, in the price range of INR 72, 122 to INR 1, 52, 176.
- In the Indian motorbike community, Pulsar is famous for its iconic look, great styling, and refined riding experience that it offers exclusively for the Indian youth.
- With 75 years of experience in the Indian two-wheeler market, Bajaj has created a separate segment called “Sports biking,” a successful track record!
It isn’t just motorbikes, but the concept of “Vocal for Local” went viral all over social media and surprisingly getting adopted by many.
Thus, from our side, too, let’s contribute a little by preferring mostly locally manufactured products as the first step towards an economically self-reliant nation.
So, let’s go “Vocal for Local.”
