Motorcycles with ABS under Rs 1.2 Lakhs
Honda CB Hornet 160R ABS
Hornet 160R comes with a single-channel ABS on the top-end variant. It is the most premium 160cc offering from Honda. Like Gixxer, it is the only other 160cc motorcycle that offers ABS. Hornet 160R ABS goes for Rs 93,943 (ex-showroom).

Just like Gixxer and Gixxer SF, Intruder also gets the same 155cc engine. The power figures stay same at 14.8 BHP and 14 Nm. The same gearbox setup also continues.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
Apache RTR 200 4V was introduced in 2017 and since then the ABS variant has been on sale. RTR 200 comes with a dual-channel ABS as an option. Dual-channel ABS is obviously more appreciated than a single-channel unit. The ABS variant is priced at Rs 1.1 Lakh (ex-showroom).

Bajaj Pulsar NS200
Bajaj Auto is lagging behind in terms of ABS updates. Although recent news says that the entire Pulsar and Avenger range will be updated soon. Pulsar NS200 was the earliest ones to get ABS as an option. The naked 200cc Pulsar gets dual-channel ABS as an option. It is priced at Rs 1.12 Lakh (Ex-showroom).
Pulsar NS200 and RS200 borrow their engines from the Duke 200. However, Bajaj does some tuning for better road manners. NS200 produces 24.5 BHP and 18.6 Nm of peak torque. The power figures are not that lower than Duke 200. NS200 also uses a 6-speed gearbox.
KTM Duke 125
KTM’s latest offering, the baby Duke 125 also comes with a single-channel ABS unit. It is the first 125cc motorcycle to offer ABS and much more other racing equipment. It competes with the likes of Yamaha R15 V3, Pulsar NS200 and Apache RTR 200 4V. Duke 125 is priced at Rs 1.18 Lakh (ex-showroom).
Duke 125 gets a 124.6cc liquid-cooled engine that produces 15 BHP and 14 Nm of peak torque. The figures may seem low, but the engine is quite juicy to show off. The bike is mated to a 6-speed gearbox setup.
Motorcycles with ABS under Rs 1.5 Lakhs
Royal Enfield Classic 350
Royal Enfield started updating its entire range from October last year. Classic 350 gets a dual-channel ABS on all the variants.
By now, it has almost covered all the variants in the lineup, except RE Bullet 350 and 500. Although the standard colours do not get ABS, rest of the colours – Redditch, Signals and other variants
Classic 350 uses the same old 346cc air-cooled engine that thumps out 19.1 BHP and 28 Nm of peak torque. The gearbox onboard is a 5-speed unit.
Bajaj Pulsar RS200
Bajaj Pulsar RS200 is the semi-faired sportsbike version of the NS200. Both share the same engine, same suspension and even the same alloy wheels. The only difference is the riding purpose, which for RS 200 is performance and for NS200 is comfortable touring.
This Pulsar comes with a dual-channel ABS on-board. RS200 is the most expensive Pulsar on-board, at a price of Rs 1.39 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
It gets a 200cc engine that produces 24.5 BHP and 18.6 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350
RE Thunderbird is the true cruiser on their lineup and not the Classic and Bullet series. Thunderbird 350 was one of the last ones in the lineup to be updated. Just like other RE motorcycles, it also gets a dual-channel ABS support.
Thunderbird 350 ABS is priced at Rs 1.5 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
It gets a 346cc air-cooled engine that produces 19.1 BHP and 28 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox setup.
