Seeks a motorcycle within a budget of Rs 2.5 lakh.

I am a college student and want your suggestion on which motorcycle to purchase within my budget of Rs 2.5 lakh? I will use the bike to travel 15km each day and have my sights set on the KTM RC390. Could you advice me about this bike and also suggest the best option otherwise?

AAA Yes, the KTM RC390 makes a super motorcycle in its segment, and you can go ahead and pick up one without any reservation. However, keep in mind the RC is a track-focused sportsbike and due to this, comfort is slightly compromised, in the interest of sharper handling. If you would like an alternative option that can do almost all that the RC manages, yet isn’t quite as aggressive, we suggest you look at the KTM 390 Duke as well.
