Top Premium Bikes Cheaper Than iPhone 13 Pro Max In India: Suzuki, Yamaha & More | Automotive News
The Indian two-wheeler industry is the largest in the world and with the growth in income, the idea of scooters and commuter motorcycles has also changed over time. Once ruled by the 110 and 125cc motorcycles, 150-200cc motorcycles are now quite common. However, prices for two-wheelers have jumped many times over the past few years, with a 150-16cc commuter bike costing up to Rs 1.5 lakh, which is equivalent to an iphone. One of the most expensive flagship phones in the Indian market is Apple’s iPhone 13 Pro Max (512GB), priced at around Rs 1.59 lakh.
