Well, we all know that motorcycle sales in lower segments is mainly driven by a particular model’s average fuel mileage. Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise to see every two-wheeler company trying hard to come up with the best mileage bikes to attract more new motorcycle buyers. There is nothing surprising with this phenomenon. With the Indian two-wheeler market largely catering to first-time motorcycle buyers and those with a budget of not more than Rs 65-70,000, fuel efficiency becomes really important. Also, with petrol prices touching an all-time high in recent times, it gets really important for the price-conscious motorcycle users to extract the highest mileage from their motorcycles. Today, there are a plethora of motorcycles available in the market and hence, it has become really tough to pick up the best motorcycle in terms of mileage, reliability, and cost of ownership.

Witha. mileage of around 80 kmpl, the Bajaj CT100B impresses the economy conscious. It’s also around Rs 4,000 cheaper than your regular CT100.
