Here are some of the fastest bikes in India that cost Under Rs 5 lakh, ranging from sports bikes to ADVs (ex-showroom)
|Top 5 Fastest Bikes under 5 Lakhs||Price|
|BMW G310GS||Rs. 3.10 lakh|
|Benelli Leoncino 500||Rs. 4.79 lakh|
|KTM 390 Adventure||Rs. 3.37 lakh|

|Kawasaki Ninja 400||Rs. 4.69 lakh|
5. BMW G310GS
The G 310 GS is the smallest capacity ADV offered by BMW Motorrad in India. Despite having the GS designation, it lacks spoked wheels and instead has alloy wheels, making it less of a true ADV. However, the Metzeler Tourance tyres do an excellent job of keeping composure, and it is capable enough for the occasional trail run. The engine is extremely efficient for its displacement. During our tests, it produced 37.39 kmpl (city) and 31.94 kmpl (highway). Therefore, despite the modest 11-litre fuel tank, long distance travel shouldn’t be too difficult.
The engine provides quick acceleration as well; the race from 0 to 100 kph takes just 7.57 seconds. Despite having a respectable top speed of 132 kmph, the engine has a tendency to rattle at higher speeds. The ideal speed range is between 80 and 90 kph. The 34PS and 28Nm output of the 313cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine is identical to that of its naked twin, the G 310 R. Dual-channel ABS is installed, however you may turn it off at the back if you want to slide it about on the mud. Overall, if you want a modest off-roader with solid touring credentials that is definitely a GS, the G 310 GS is a good investment.
4. Benelli Leoncino 500
The best Benelli currently for sale, in my opinion, is the Leoncino 500. It is impressive in terms of appearance, riding quality, and performance. The Leoncino 500’s 500cc parallel-twin motor, which produces 47.5PS and 46Nm, is shared with the larger TRK 502 ADV. It can be driven at 120 kph continuously and speeds from 0 to 100 kph in 8.23 seconds. You can ride the Leoncino in fifth gear at speeds as low as 30 kmph since the motor is tractable. Although it has a top speed of more than 150kmph, doing so is not particularly comfortable due to the lack of wind protection.
Even though it has scrambler look, the Leoncino lacks dual-purpose tyres and long suspension travel. It is more of a naked motorcycle and costs less than Rs. 4.79 lakh (ex-showroom).
3. KTM 390 Adventure
Even though the KTM 390 Adventure costs Rs 2.99 lakh, it warrants a spot on this list due to both its performance and adaptability. Trellis frames, long-travel WP suspension, and dual-purpose Metzeler Tourance tyres with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear sizes are all included on this adventure motorcycle. The 373cc engine of the KTM 390 Duke and the 390 Adventure both produce 44PS and 37Nm of torque. The 390 Adventure can easily reach 150 kph and accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 5.84 seconds.
The 390 Adventure’s electronics include cornering ABS and lean sensing traction control, both of which may be turned off. With its upright riding position, height, adjustable windscreen, and supportive seat, the 390 Adventure is a capable tourer. It resembles a more adaptable and cosy KTM 390 Duke.
2. CFMoto 650NK
The most potent motorcycle on our list is the 650cc model, which is reasonably priced under Rs 5 lakh. The 650NK is a CKD motorbike, just like other CFMoto models. A 649.3cc liquid-cooled parallel twin engine with 61.18PS and 56Nm of torque is housed below the muscular-appearing KISKA designed bodywork. Although refinement is not its strong suit, the motorcycle can reach 100 kph in 5.18 seconds thanks to its torquey powerplant. The 650 NK can reach a top speed of 200kmph.
The 650NK feels nimble and effectively conceals its weight despite having a basic telescopic fork and side-mounted monoshock configuration. Twin discs up front and a single disc with dual-channel ABS are used for braking. It has CST radial tyres, a relatively unknown brand that surprised everyone with how well they gripped in the rain. With a suggested retail price of Rs 3.99 lakh, the CFMoto 650NK is one of the best CKD performance motorcycles you can purchase.
1. Kawasaki Ninja 400
The second-most potent of the five bikes mentioned here is the Kawasaki Ninja 400. It has LED headlights and taillights and incorporates design elements from the venerable H2. A 399cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that produces 49PS at 10,000rpm and 38Nm at 8000rpm drives this little Ninja. According to our tests, these numbers help the bike accelerate from 0-100kmph in just 5.4 seconds, making it the fastest in its segment. They are also the highest in its class. The motorcycle had a respectable top speed of 159.83kmph. It really starts to run because it is a peaky motor after 8000 rpm. And the engine has enough power to maintain 120 kmph continuously throughout the day.
In our tests, it achieved 24.5 kpl in the city and 30.4 kpl on the highway in terms of fuel efficiency. This provides it a range of more than 300km when combined with the 14-liter fuel tank. It has standard dual-channel ABS operating on petal discs at the front and back, as one would expect from a premium motorcycle. 41mm telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable monoshock at the back handle ride and handling, respectively. The main drawback is the price, which is higher than average at Rs. 4.69 lakh because it is a CKD (completely knocked down) product (ex-showroom).
