10-Liter Bikes That Are Easy To Own And Ride

The best motorbikes available are liter bikes, sometimes known as 1000cc monsters. These bikes have the best parts in terms of chassis design, suspension setup, braking systems, and electronic rider aids. They also offer excellent levels of performance that are only slightly lower than competition bikes. It would be an understatement to say they are technical wonders; if you have ever ridden a liter bike, you will understand precisely what we mean. Since they are so competent, most motorcycle riders will never even come close to entirely using all these motorcycles.

But it seems sensible that not everyone is a good fit for these bikes. Liter bikes are expensive to maintain, not very tractable on the streets, and can reach unlawful speeds in the first few gears. Even though bikers aren’t often the most practical people, some of us still wish we could buy these fantastic vehicles.

If so, you should look at these “tamer” ten-liter motorcycles; they are reasonably priced, relatively easy to ride, and you can get some of the performance they provide without going to jail. They can keep up with the top superbikes if you take them to a racecourse.

10 Best liter-class bikes in India

1. DUCATI STREETFIGHTER V2

Although it may be a contentious choice, we believe the Ducati Streetfighter V2 should be on this list. Of course, compared to other motorcycles on the list, it is less dependable, requires more expensive maintenance, and has certain typical Ducati annoyances. Still, if you treat it well and schedule regular maintenance, this bike should last a long time. We chose this one because, unlike the V4 Ducatis, the Streetfighter V2 is considerably more pleasant and subdued and can be comfortably ridden for almost an hour.

2. KAWASAKI NINJA 1000 SX

Consider the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX if you’re looking for a liter bike that’s comfortable for extended rides and easy to ride. This motorbike is among the most comfortable and laid-back liter-class motorcycles ever manufactured, combining superbike heritage with a comfortable touring experience. However, don’t be fooled by its touring nature; the inline-four engine can quickly spool up and accelerate this bike to twice the highway speed in seconds. This multipurpose adventure bike is superior to a specialist one; it can be used for touring, commuting, and cornering.

3. TRIUMPH SPEED TRIPLE 1200 RS

Perhaps the most clever and surprising motorcycle on this list is the Speed Triple 1200 RS. When you ride this motorcycle in the midrange and swing your leg over it, you’ll be astonished at how relaxed and collected it is. Is this a middleweight naked posing as a super naked? The bike feels telepathic, responds beautifully to even the smallest throttle adjustments, and has excellent ergonomics. No, not so. 

When you apply some gas, the inline triple gets going, propelling this bike to speeds that may land you in jail or heaven. One of the most accessible naked bikes to ride in various riding situations is the Speed Triple 1200 RS, one of the best-handling models available.

4. KAWASAKI Z900

For most bikers, the Kawasaki Z900 is the perfect super naked. With its agile chassis, which puts it miles ahead of the Z800, quick-revving inline-four engine, and Sugomi styling, this naked bike will make you smile without being silly. This motorbike is easy to ride and features a complete system of rider aids that guarantees both wheels stay in their proper positions, even if it has more than enough power to scare you. And because it’s a Kawasaki, it’s pretty dependable!

5. YAMAHA MT-09

The Yamaha MT-09 is a better option if you’re looking for a more laid-back Yamaha experience, but the MT-10 is still a legitimate hooligan that’s still relatively easy to ride. The Yamaha MT-09 is anticipated to be on sale in India in February 2024, with a price tag between ₹11,50,000 and ₹ 12,00,000. The torquey CP3 engine in this motorcycle can pull power wheelies at practically every speed and has an excellent midrange for navigating city streets.

One of the most adaptable naked bikes in the class, it strikes a good mix of dependability, performance, and daily use. The MT-09 can be thought of as a hybrid between hyper naked and middleweight naked, in the same way as the MT-10 is a hybrid between Supersports and naked.

6. KAWASAKI NINJA ZX-10R

The Kawasaki ZX-10R is the ideal track weapon that is simple to maintain when you occasionally need to make foolish decisions. This superbike is not forgiving and should only be used by seasoned riders searching for a dependable missile. However, the ZX 10R is easy to control while driving.

It can be turned into a racing machine with headlights with a few button pushes, allowing for Kawasaki’s extensive array of electronic rider aids. This bike will reward you if you treat it respectfully; if not, it won’t think twice about throwing you to the curb.

7. HONDA CBR1000RR-R FIREBLADE

Similar in flavor to the ZX 10R, the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade is dependable, tech-savvy, manageable, and practical for everyday use; nevertheless, beneath all of that, it remains a race bike. How comfortable and forgiving this bike feels under typical riding situations distinguishes the Fireblade from the Kawasaki. This is the ideal first-superbike for moving from an intermediate bike. If you’re a professional racer, you could push the Fireblade to its absolute limits, but it’s still the perfect superbike—it’s not the fastest or sharpest.

8. HONDA CB1000R

The Honda CB1000R is an incredibly underappreciated motorcycle, regardless of your preference for street fighting or neo-retro cafe racing. Granted, the CB1000R doesn’t have its competitors’ aggressive look or performance, but that wasn’t its intended purpose. Buying a CB1000R is more about how easy it is to live with than about speed or performance.

The Honda CB1000R is anticipated to go on sale in India in January 2024, with a price tag between ₹15,00,000 and ₹16,00,000. The bike is bulletproof, the parts are inexpensive, and the servicing intervals are extended. Don’t let that fool you, though; the Honda CB1000R still has plenty of power to amuse even the most seasoned riders; it just aims to do so in a far more subdued and sophisticated manner. You can purchase this liter bike and never worry about repurchasing another one.

9. BMW S1000R

In the Indian market, the BS6-compliant BMW S1000R naked roadster has been introduced to compete with vehicles like the Kawasaki Z H2 and the Ducati Streetfighter V4. In the Indian market, the motorcycle comes in three versions: Standard, Pro, and Pro M Sport.

The liquid-cooled, 999cc, inline-four, BS6-compliant motor generates 114Nm of peak torque at 9,250 rpm and 165bhp power at 11,000 rpm. The gearbox has six speeds connected to it. The fuel efficiency is 16.12 km or 6.2 liters per 100 km.

10. KAWASAKI H2R

Even though, if you exclude the Supercharged component, it is technically a liter bike, it still needs to be good enough to make the list. The first and most crucial thing to remember is that the H2 R is a motorbike meant only for use on closed courses. This is probably good because the bike shouldn’t be let loose on public roads.

Second, the 998cc BS6 engine that powers the Kawasaki Ninja H2R produces 165 Nm of torque and 305.75 horsepower. The anti-locking braking system of the Kawasaki Ninja H2R is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and back wheels. This Ninja H2R bike weighs 216 kg, and its fuel tank holds 17 liters.
