KTM 390 Duke
In the used two-wheeler market you can get a couple of years older KTM 390 Duke for around Rs. 1.8 lakh to Rs. 2 lakh
The KTM 390 Duke has been an entry-point for many who want to buy a premium motorcycle. It’s one of the most powerful single-cylinder motorcycles available in the market and the go-to motorcycle for anyone looking for a performance bike on a budget. However, it is a bit on the pricier side, and brand new 390 Duke could cost you around Rs. 3.20 lakh on-road Delhi. But in the used two-wheeler market you can get a couple of years older model for around Rs. 1.8 lakh to Rs. 2 lakh. A little older previous-gen 390 Duke will be even cheaper.
Royal Enfield Himalayan
A new RE Himalayan will now cost you over Rs. 2.2 lakhs on-road. But, if you are on a tighter budget, then you can get a pre-owned one for around Rs. 1.6 lakh
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a very capable, and one of the most affordable adventure motorcycles when it was launched a few years ago with an under Rs. 1.5 lakh price tag. However, after the BS6 upgrade, the motorcycle has received a considerable price hike, and a new RE Himalayan will now cost you over Rs. 2.2 lakhs on-road. But, if you are on a tighter budget, then you can get a pre-owned Himalayan for around Rs. 1.6 lakh to Rs. 1.8 lakh.
Royal Enfield Classic 350
A pre-owned version can certainly be a smart option for anyone looking for a more affordable alternative, as it will be at least Rs. 1 lakh less expensive
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the company’s best-selling motorcycle, and for good reasons. Its retro-designed, along with features like ABS, electric start, and iconic thumper engine attracted a lot of customers. However, like the Himalayan, the Classic 350 too has become a bit expensive for many buyers, reaching almost Rs. 2.25 lakh on road. So, a pre-owned version can certainly be a smart option for anyone looking for a more affordable alternative. You can get a slightly older classic 350 for around Rs. 1.2 lakh to Rs. 1.5 lakh, depending on the model year and condition.
Bajaj Avenger Street/Cruise 220
You can get a good 220 cc Avenger bike for around Rs. 60,000 in the used two-wheeler market, depending on the model year and condition of the bike

A brand new model will cost you around Rs. 1.47 lakh to Rs. 1.58 lakh on-road Delhi, and if you have the budget for it, the bike is certainly a great value proposition.
