It's not every day that we are in a mood of listing motorcycles based on the pathetic design carried on them but it was only for one of the recently launched bikes that reminded us that no matter what sometimes manufacturers do miscalculate some equations. We thought the era of ugly designs is over but that's not entirely right. Some might say that looks are subjective, but we are pretty damn sure it's not in the case of the ones we have listed. Below I have narrowed down some of the Indian bikes that might be head turners but not in a very good way of course. Hero Karizma ZMR:
The original Hero Honda Karizma (1999-2008) was one of the best looking bikes of its age but then folks at Hero decided to mess it up big time. Originally, it was the Karizma that changed the way motorcycles looked 15 years back. Motorcycles at that time were skinny, ***** and odd looking creatures but Karizma stepped in and wooed every motorcycle enthusiast in India. Bajaj BYK:
The Pune based automaker, Bajaj is known to make smart products be it talking about the classic Pulsar series or the new modern products like the Dominar. But like every other brand, even Bajaj has made some stupendous looking bikes in the past, not talking about all of them but one. The Bajaj BYK is an old bike, launched in early 2000's and then soon discontinued. Suzuki Intruder 150:
Out of all other bikes in the list, Intruder 150 is the only bike that's currently on sale in India. In fact for those who don't know it was launched only a few days back. The styling of the bike has been majorly inspired by the 'big-bad-original' Intruder bikes but the way it has been carried on to match the appeal of a 150cc bike has been quite a disaster. Yamaha Fazer 125:
Maybe if we had to pick the ugliest bike on this list and if it was not the Karizma ZMR, then it would definitely be this bike. The way we look at it, the designing team of this bike must have been drunk all the time. We mean how can they give a bee head to a mass production bike? Seriously? Suzuki Fiero:
The Fiero like other bikes in the list is one of the old school motorcycles that existed for a small period of time. The problem with its design was that it looked like an abandoned kid of the Kinetic scooter. Its headlight was weirdly wide that would've looked better on a scooter instead of a bike.

Hi Mauryadurgap, the following tips are low cost easy to apply/install and guaranteed to give you better gas mileage and a smoother running bike. The average motorcycle gets 35-40 MPG. saving .2 gallon of gas could save you a 6-mile walk. 125cc scooters have been known to get 115 plus MPG
1. Proper tire inflation as per MFG. specifications wheels should be balanced and spokes tight.
2. Oil and coolant levels maintained at full marks, low levels produce excessive heat that causes the engine to work harder and reduces efficiency.
3. Keep extra weight to a minimum.
4. Take off from a dead stop should be smooth and easy throttle applied avoid excessive throttle snaps.
5. Smaller windshields get better MPH than large ones, wind resistance increases as a square of the speed at which you're traveling. So, for example, at 70 mph, wind resistance is double what it is at 50 mph (70 squared is almost twice as much as 50 squared). That will dramatically reduce your mileage. Keep that in mind while biking.
6. Keep idle time to a bare minimum or turn off the engine.
7. Re-jet carburetor with a smaller main and mid-range jet.
8. Keep chain/belt properly adjusted.
9. Avoid quick braking, hasty acceleration, high-speed driving, try driving the speed limit and keep a constant speed.
10. On long trips use freeways or flat straight stretches of highways rather than city or rural routes avoid hills and mountains when possible.
11. Keep your engine clean, dirt and grease/oil hold in heat.
12. A full-face helmet is more aerodynamic than other types of helmets. Any other clothing that decreases your aerodynamic should be reconsidered.
13. Any unnecessary bling on your bike is going to decrease fuel efficiency.
14. Use high-quality fuel using low-quality fuel can cause sludge in your fuel injectors.
15. Keep warm up time to a minimum get off the choke ASAP.
16. Motorcycles run best when their engines are maintained, and that includes making sure the air filter is clean, the spark plugs are fresh, the fuel filter is free, and the timing/valves are adjusted.

Start by checking to make sure the kill switch is set to "run", as nothing will start the bike if it's "off". And that all the fuses are good. (There should only be two) Just like a no start problem with a car, it's going to be one of the big three: Fuel, Air or Spark. You can start by removing the spark plug and checking for spark by holding the plug with the plug wire attached, in a gloved hand, near to a part of the frame and turning the engine over. Be aware that it will shock you, if you are not careful. If no spark, the Stator/ magneto (alternator), Capacitor Discharged Ignition or CDI (timing), or Regulator/Rectifier (voltage control and conversion) could be faulty, and there are no real good tests for these other than using another scooter that works, changing out the parts and rechecking. If you do have spark, check the fuel by removing the air filter and spraying a small amount of starting fluid into the air intake. Please note however that these scooters require an exact airflow and the bike may not run or idle without it's filter. Did you clean out the carburetor, or dump the float bowl? If so, it can take a ton of cranking from the engine to put out enough vacuum to draw gas back in. Starting fluid can sometimes get the carb to fire enough to start the engines vacuum. And if that didn't work, air could be the problem. These Chinese scooters usually don't have many vacuum lines, there is one on the fuel pump, and one on the carb.There is a choke on the carb, but it is electronic and should be self adjusting, requiring no maintenance.
Get some engine starting fluid and spray a small amount in the air intake. If that doesn't work take out the spark plug and see if it sparks when you pull the cord and make sure it is not fouled. If it is wet with fuel dry out the plug and pull the cord a few times to clear the cylinder. Fresh premium fuel always works best on temperamental engines.
depends on your daily needs. Apache RTR is best for city riding. It has good power, is light weight but is shorter is length. Yamaha FZ-S is economical, stylish but not as powerful as Apache while Bajaj Avenger has a very good mileage in it's class, is powerful and Bajaj is the best selling motorcycle brand at the moment in India, so the servicing and spares is not a problem with Bajaj.The only drawback is the ground clearance in Bajaj Avenger.
