The sub 80,000 INR bracket is basically the budget commuter segment which is getting more and more competitive with each passing day. Bikes from this segment are known for their utility, fuel efficiency and manoeuvrability which makes them ideal for riding in congested traffic conditions and weaving through narrow lanes for last-mile connectivity.
Overall, this segment is seeing tremendous improvement. India became the world’s largest 2-wheeler market in 2017 with more than 37 million motorcycles and scooters on the road. As per data from SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers), more than 1.3 crore two-wheelers were sold in FY22 with a daily average of 36,000+ units sold. While the market size of the two-wheeler industry in India is USD 16 billion, it is expected to grow to USD 26.6 billion in 2028.
This changing pulse of the Indian buyer resonates with us at TVS Motor, and that is why we offer not just one but 3 of the best bikes under INR 80,000: -
