The commuter bike segment is the highest selling bike segment in India. These small peppy machines are perfect for the everyday bumper to bumper traffic in the cities.  High fuel efficiency and adequate performance at an affordable price make these a very compelling option. Not everyone wants a KTM or Bullet! Find below about New Hero Passion Pro vs Honda Livo vs TVS Radeon Comparison.

Affordable commuter bikes need to look the best to sell more units than the competition.  Commuter bikes are generally sold with functional/simple design, but the Hero Passion Pro is quite different.  Though some components are quite basic, the overall look for the bike is quite impressive. Funky colours, graphics, mud flaps, 18-inch alloy wheels, silver accents and premium fonts make the bike a contender of one segment above. The single-seat is quite comfortable for two passengers. The instrument cluster is also quite large for a bike of its segment.

The Honda Livo’s design on the other hand feels quite dated compared to current standards. It has a very silent sporty look with 17-inch alloy wheels, black accents.  The main disadvantage of the Honda Livo is the similarity of the bike among the crowd.

The TVS Radeon is the most basic looking bike in this comparison.  In spite of its basic looks, the bike feels quite premium.  Rubber pads on the fuel tank, LED DRLs, chrome accents and the widest leather seat among the competition.  It looks quite different among the rivals and easily stands out in front of the competition.  The exhaust note of the TVS Radeon is quite impressive for its size, and feels similar to Royal Enfield.

Though the TVS Star City Plus is a more in-demand bike, the new Radeon is no less. With many unique features up its sleeve, the new TVS Radeon is a great choice.  Though all the bikes are quite good for their segment, there is always room for improvement.
