More from Motoring

Every year, the team at Motoring World sits down and takes a good look at all the two-wheelers that were launched in the previous year. We’ll admit it — it’s a fun exercise, and something that we look forward to. Having discussed, argued, fought, laughed and finally agreed our way through our Jury Rounds, we are left with a select set of the very best automotive products — the ones making up the Motoring World Awards. Here, then, are our winners for 2021!

Commuter of the Year

Hero MotoCorp Passion Pro

Refined, efficient, comfortable, and stylish to boot. And that’s even before you consider its terrific value for money. Nothing came close to the Hero MotoCorp Passion Pro in this segment!

Premium Commuter of the Year

Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R

It’s not easy to get an all-new platform right in the first go. But that’s exactly what the Hero MotoCorp Xtreme 160R does. Its fun motor and even better handling ensure that you’ll never ride it without huge smiles.

Electric Scooter of the Year

Bajaj Chetak

The comeback of a legendary name in an all-new electrified format. The new Bajaj Chetak aims to ride the wave of new-age mobility from the front. Heck, we’d give it the trophy for its ride quality alone.

Premium Motorcycle of the Year

Husqvarna Svartpilen 250

An old motorcycling name that’s new for India. A funky design like we’ve never seen before. And it’s a proper hooligan to ride, too! This left-of-field Indo-Swede gets the gold for being so delightfully different.

Design of the Year

Bajaj Chetak

It’s not just about the looks. It’s about the small details, both aesthetic and of convenience. It’s about the quality of thought and effortless execution. And this year, nothing comes close to the thoughtful and charming Chetak.

Adventure Motorcycle of the Year

KTM 390 Adventure

That familiar stonking motor in a more bashable package? An electronics package and equipment that we’ve never seen outside of big bikes? All right, we’re sold. Point us to the nearest trails, please.

Performance Motorcycle of the Year

Triumph Tiger 900

Indians know how tigers can be. And now we also know what happens when a Tiger reinvents itself — it goes right back to the top where an apex predator should be. As an all-round, all-season motorcycle, nothing comes close to the Triumph Tiger 900.

Cruiser of the Year

Harley-Davidson Low Rider S

Milwaukee’s V-twins are a perennial favourite. They look good, sound even better, and tear up the road when called upon to do so. But mostly, they’re the best for chilling out on. Isn’t that what cruising is all about?

Motorcycle of the Year

Royal Enfield Meteor 350

A heart that beats like the days of yore, but with modern peace of mind. Its manners are as addictive as they’re meditative. And it’s put together better than ever before, too. A worthy winner of our outright two-wheeled honour — the Royal Enfield Meteor 350.
