RE 650 Twins (Rs 2.88 lakh - Rs 3.05 lakh) While the Conti is an out and out cafe racer with its low-slung handlebars and aggressive posture, the Interceptor is more of a California cruiser with raised handlebars and a relaxed rider’s triangle. Both are powered by the same 647.9cc parallel-twin motor which makes 47PS of power and 52Nm of torque.

Jawa 42 Bobber (Rs 2.09 lakh)Based on the Perak, the Jawa 42 Bobber comes only with a single-seat option with a muscular fuel tank, and classic round LED headlamps. Powering it is a 334cc single-cylinder engine which makes 30.64PS and 32.74Nm of torque.

Benelli Leoncino 500 (Rs 5.35 lakh)The Benelli’s Leoncino 500 blends the ruggedness of a scrambler with the classy sophistication of a retro offering, with its single-pod instrument cluster and round headlamps contrasting the overall angular bodywork. Here power comes from a 500cc single-cylinder motor which makes 47.5PS and 46Nm of torque.

Honda CB350RS (Rs 2.05 lakh)A sportier take on the H’ness 350, the CB350RS gets a more rugged look with chunkier tyres, subtle tweaks in the bodywork and an array of retro-themed paint schemes. Just like the Cafe Racer, the RS is powered by a 348.36cc single-cylinder engine which makes 21.07PS and 30Nm.

Royal Enfield Classic 350 (Rs 1.90 lakh)It’d be a cardinal sin to not talk about the updated Classic 350 in this list. Now built on RE’s J-series platform, the Classic 350 continues to sport the same vintage design as before. Powering it is a 349cc, air-cooled single-cylinder engine which makes 20.2PS and 27Nm of torque.
