5 affordable motorcycles with LED headlamps below Rs. 1.27 lakh: Honda Hornet to Yamaha FZ25 and YZF-R15 V3

Here are five affordable bikes in the Indian market that offer a full LED set-up.

Honda XBlade

Price starts at Rs. 78,500, ex-showroom, Delhi

Honda showcased the XBlade at the 2018 Auto Expo and later launched the bike in India. The bike is based on the Honda Hornet but gets a more youthful, quirky styling with bold body graphics. The XBlade offers a full LED headlamp set-up and is the first Honda bike in India to do so. The bike also gets a single-channel ABS as an optional feature.

Honda Hornet 160R

Price starts at Rs. 84,675, ex-showroom, Delhi

Soon after the launch of the XBlade, Honda launched the updated Hornet 160R. It is powered by the same engine as the XBlade but offers more power. The Hornet 160R also gets a full-LED headlamp set-up. The bike gets a fully digital console and other features like Combi-Brake System on the lower variants. The Hornet 160R is the only bike in the segment to get LED lamps.

Hero XPulse (Upcoming)

Expected price: Rs. 1.10 lakh

The Hero XPulse has remained one of the most awaited bikes in the Indian market. The XPulse will become the most affordable adventure bike in the country after its launch. It will be powered by the same engine as the Hero Xtreme 200S and will get the same frame too. The bike will get long travel suspension and also an LED headlamp set-up for easier night rides.

Yamaha YZF-R15 V3

Price starts at Rs. 1.25 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi

Yamaha launched the much-awaited YZF-R15 V3 earlier this year. The Indian version of the bike misses out on certain features like the upside-down forks, aluminium footpegs and the sticky Metzeler tyres. However, features like an all-new LED headlamp set-up continues to be on offer. The bike is the most powerful bike in the segment and gets a liquid-cooled engine. However, the is no ABS available on the bike even as an optional feature.

Yamaha FZ25

Price starts at Rs. 1.27 lakh ex-showroom, Delhi

Yamaha launched the much-awaited FZ25 in the Indian market last year and the motorcycle is selling well. The naked street bike serves as a perfect companion for highways too. The FZ25 gets an all-LED headlamp set-up as standard. The bike is preferred by customers who love smoothness and refinement. The FZ25 misses out on ABS and does not even offer it as an optional choice.

Overdrive says

Finally, the full-LED headlamp throws a decently powerful beam of clean white, defined light. It’s nicer than a standard halogen, but is nowhere close to miniature sun that resides on the front of the Bajaj Dominar.
