It should definitely work for a bike which hasn’t even begun competing on the same level as its siblings. So Bajaj decided to use the design of the Pulsar 220F and put the 180cc engine in it.

Instead, they are meant for easy riding and everyday commuting. The most famous and probably the only affordable Classic bike available in India is the Royal Enfield Classic series. These bikes certainly look the part and for many years they have taught us that their poor engine performance is their charm.

The wind, the smell, the rain, everything touches the rider, at a faster rate than any other person.
