Kawasaki Ninja 300
This is the smallest Kawasaki that you can buy in India. Although this makes less power than the Duke 390 it is a twin-cylinder and that is why the bike feels unstressed and gives slightly better mileage than the high revving Duke 390. It feels premium and if you are upgrading from a small bike and don’t want the made orange machines of KTM, green is the way to go with the Kawasakis. At an on-road Mumbai price of Rs 3.96 lakh, this bike is a good bike that will deliver great value for your money. This bike makes 39 bhp of power and 26.1 Nm of torque.

It gives the feel of a big bike without being very obnoxious. The sound of the exhaust makes twisting the throttle very addictive. It is quite loud even on the stock exhaust.
Benelli TRK 500
This adventure tourer is a mammoth. It shares its engine with the Leoncino and has the same power figures. The excess weight of the bike makes it feel a bit lethargic but at a price of Rs 6.17 lakh on-road Mumbai, this gives the feel of a full-size adventure tourer. This bike is the only adventure tourer in this list of powerful bikes under Rs 8 lakh. It is quite a comfortable bike for the highway.
