Most Comfortable Motorcycles for Riders Over 60
For the passionate aged riders, there is no shortage of comfortable motorcycles in the Indian market
To most of the world, a motorcycle is a mere means of transport. However, there is a unique breed on earth for whom riding motorcycles is an obsession. They start early in their lives and ride till their last breath. In the beginning, they are capable of riding almost any and every motorcycle. However, with age, they search for machines that offers comfort more than anything else. Fortunately, the Indian market has no dearth of comfortable motorcycles. So, if you are an ardent rider above 50 or 60 on the pursuit for the next significant thing, here’s a list of the most comfortable rides you will come across in India.
*Note that this list comprises premium motorcycles with hefty price tags.
Kawasaki Vulcan S- Powered by a 650cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine, the Kawasaki Vulcan S is tuned to produce a maximum power of 59.1bhp at 7,500rpm and 62.4Nm of peak torque at 6,600rpm. Priced at INR 6.94 lakh ex-showroom Kolkata, the Vulcan S comes with ABS as standard for additional safety and a 14-litre fuel tank. Not to forget, the teardrop tank design, laid back seating position, raised handlebars and forward-set foot-pegs makes it an ideal candidate for aged riders.
Ducati models- Ducati offers several premium comfortable motorcycles in India and, in our book of thoughts, their Diavel model is a godly machine. Indeed, at INR 20 lakh; the Diavel is an expensive deal but its 1,296cc engine is out of this world. Not to overlook, the motorcycle has tons of electronic aids which ensure the safety of the rider. Apart from Diavel, our money is also on the Scrambler which is comfortable enough for extensive tours and also helps a rider go off-road. In case, a rider is planning to visit Leh & Ladakh, the Spiti Valley or countries with off-road terrain such as Nepal and Bhutan, the rider with the Scrambler’s off-road tyres and adjustable suspension setup will fly without breaking a sweat.
Triumph Bonneville Speedster- Triumph has several comfortable motorcycles on offer such as the T120, T100 and the Street Twin. However, our money is on the Triumph Bonneville Speedster that is priced at INR 12 lakh. Powered by a 1, 200cc, 270 degrees, parallel-twin, 8-valve, SOHC engine; the Speedster is one of the best cruisers in the market that is equipped with modern features such as traction control, cruise control and ride-by-wire tech.
