We all know that every 2 wheeler manufacturer who is doing business in India will have to launch atleast one commuter motorcycle because considering the condition of our Indian roads and rising fuel prices this is the only motorcycle which most of the Indian consumers prefer. Suzuki too applied the same formula and launched the Hayate in the year 2012 in India and it has gathered quite an impressive response from the people after it was launched in India. This motorcycle looked impressive and came with an equally impressive fuel efficient engine.

Now after almost 2 years of its launch Suzuki has brought the refreshed Hayate to compete with the other commuters of its segment which for our reader’s information too has received their fair share of changes and updates. Suzuki has made couple of changes of their own to their commuter and we are here to tell you all the details about it. Now Suzuki is trying to update all their existing products besides launching some new products, recently they have launched the updated version of the Access scooter with few cosmetic updates and now they launched their commuter Hayate with some changes which I am sure most of you would love.

What are the most underrated mass oriented bikes of India?

What are the most underrated mass oriented bikes of India?

The list includes a model from almost all the manufacturers from India. We ought to give them some slack.

In our number of stories, we have repeatedly said that the Indian two wheeler market is one tough field to study. The kind of demands we Indians do ask from two-wheeler makers are quite hard to conquer, as we want literally everything in one product.

Keeping in view of such demands from a very competitive market, the manufacturers too are doing a tremendous job by offering products which are offering a good blend of all the traits in one single package. Out of all these products, some do hit the sales charts with massive popularity, while some of them end up being average or low sellers, despite being a brilliant piece of engineering and design.

In this feature story, we are going to throw some light on the latter category of motorcycles and scooters, ones which are not selling as expected despite being wonderful in one way or the other. Here’s a list of all such unfortunate and underrated motorcycles and scooters, and we seriously wish that they do post impressive numbers for their makers:-

Feature – List of 110cc motorcycles available in India

The complete list of commuter 110 cc motorcycles

Not long ago, when the commuter segment of motorcycles were discussed in India, the discussion was confined to only 100cc motorcycles from the likes of Hero Honda, Bajaj and TVS, which used to sell bare basic 100cc motorcycles which were low on features and were priced extremely competitive. However, come 2016, and the market has moved forward, thus giving birth to an all new segment of commuters, that of 110cc categories.

For starters, the 110cc category of motorcycles does offer a bit more power, features and technology over the regular breed of 100cc ones, without compromising on fuel efficiency and maintenance a bit. Featuring the best of both the worlds of 100cc and 125cc, the 110cc segment is now the new in-thing, thus offering the most value for your well spent buck.

In this feature story, we have listed down all the 110cc motorcycles available in the Indian market from almost all the major manufacturers of India, thus giving us a proof that this is now the most hotly contested category of motorcycles in India. Here is the list of all the 110cc motorcycles which have been listed price and category wise.

Battle of The entry level commuters

No matter how much growth the premium and performance oriented motorcycles have witnessed in the recent times, there is no doubt that the entry level commuter segment will be of the most significance in the Indian two wheeler market. And it has to be – the 100-110cc commuter segment, for the time being, has a market share of almost 60 per cent as far as sales are concerned.

This segment of 100-110cc motorcycles too has become much more versatile and broader than before. In the entry level space of this segment of 100-110cc motorcycles itself, there are nearly 2-3 categories of motorcycles, which though being pretty much the same in terms of maintenance and fuel efficiency, they do differ in terms of styling, equipment and overall performance.

From the day one, Hero has undoubtedly dominated this segment with its Splendor range, which has seen a number of alterations in its existence of more than two decades. In today’s time, while the Splendor range includes almost five different iterations (including an interesting and distinctive café racer), it is the Splendor Plus which happens to be the oldest and highest selling model and the model which falls in the segment which we are discussing here.

Hero’s erstwhile partner, Honda, too has managed to grab a lot of share of this segment with its ‘Dream’ range of commuters, with the Dream Neo being the highest selling 110cc model from this Japanese giant. The Dream Neo, like the Splendor Pro, has been designed as per the requirements of a common man from a daily commuting machine.

Few days back, Suzuki too refreshed its lone 110cc model in India, the Hayate, by revamping its design and refreshing its mechanicals like adding a new frame and changes to its engine, and renamed it as Hayate EP. And now, with Honda and Suzuki having potent motorcycles in the 110cc segment, their arch rival from Japan, Yamaha, too has made a comeback to the 110cc segment, by replacing its ‘too long in the tooth’ YBR 110 with the all new Saluto RX. With the Saluto RX, Yamaha intends to eat into the sales of Hero and Honda which are making majority of their profits from this very segment of 100-110cc commuters. Let’s take a look on all these four motorcycles, and find out which one emerges out to be the best of them all.

On the same philosophy, Bajaj has been churning out impressive sales with its Platina range, which thankfully is one of the very few motorcycles from Bajaj which has managed to withstand the changing times with only one major facelift in its entire life span.

The latest entrant in this segment, the Suzuki Hayate EP, may just be an evolution of its predecessor model, but so are the other three models aforementioned. The facelifts of all these four models mentioned above has resulted in the freshening up of this segment with better performance, fuel efficiency and equipment levels. In this write-up, we are going to find out which of these four models – Suzuki Hayate EP, Hero Splendor Pro, Honda Dream Neo and Bajaj Platina ES – has the ability to find a place in the porch of a common man, depending upon the distinctive traits of them:-

2016 Suzuki Hayate EP

Suzuki may have not struck the gold for a very long time in the Indian mass market of motorcycles, or to be precise, pint sized commuters. But after making a significant move in the premium 150cc segment in the form of the Gixxer, Suzuki has ensured that it is leaving no stone unturned in understanding the needs and requirements of the Indian masses, when it comes to motorcycles.

Though the Gixxer has been faring well in the segment since day one and has risen the expectations of Suzuki from it, the other commuters positioned below the Gixxer in Suzuki’s portfolio are now almost forgotten in the crowd of new and more appealing 110-125cc commuters. Speaking of 110cc commuters, Suzuki betted big with its first ever 110cc motorcycle, the Hayate, at the time of its launch back in 2012, but the motorcycle hasn’t been able to topple the likes of Splendor, Discover and Dream Yuga from their positions in the market.

Now, Suzuki has updated the Hayate by giving it a cosmetic facelift, minor tweaks to the engine and noticeable improvements in dynamics, along with a new name – Hayate EP. Let’s find out what all changes Suzuki has made to its smallest motorcycle to make it more appealing than before:-
