The Indian motorcycle market is the largest in the world and it has been witnessing a massive paradigm shift in the last couple of years. Indian motorcycle buyers, especially young-age consumers are showing more interest in buying premium higher displacement engine-equipped models instead of mundane entry-level commuters with 100 cc or 110 cc engines. While technically, the 100 cc motorcycles are still in the market as entry-level models in the Indian market, consumers are increasingly focusing on 125 cc models even for commuting, which was not the case earlier.

This drastic shift in consumer preference has propelled the two-wheeler manufacturers to change their strategy as well. Instead of focusing on 100 cc or 110 cc motorcycles for volume sales, the two-wheeler manufacturers in India are increasingly emphasising on bigger bikes. This is why, the 125 cc, 160 cc or 200 cc motorcycles are growing in numbers in India.
