These motorcycles are not only known for consuming less fuel but also for being low-priced. Also, because of featuring a less powerful engine, they are quite easy to handle and ride through city traffic.
Thus, in this article, we will be talking about the best bikes under 70000 rupees for commuters. Along with their name, we will also be providing you with some information about them that will help you to pick out the bike that meets all of your requirements.

The Best Bikes Under 70000 are:
1. Bajaj Pulsar 125
Pulsar is probably the most popular two-wheeler series of Bajaj. Thus, the motor company has recently launched a new bike, Pulsar 125, to increase the popularity of the Pulsar Family even more.
The bike is currently available in two different variants, one with drum brakes and the other with a disc brake at the front and drum at the back. However, if you want to buy the disc brake version, then you would have to spend a little bit more money.
Like any other 125cc bikes, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 also comes with 124.4cc, 4-stroke engine, which can produce a maximum power of 12ps at 8500rpm and 11Nm of torque at 6500rpm. This engine is known to be very efficient and does not vibrate even at higher speeds.

However, if you buy the disc brake variant, then you will get a 240mm disc unit at the front section. To give you more control over your two-wheeler, Bajaj has also equipped it with tubeless tires, which ensure a much better grip and balance.
When talking about fuel efficiency, Bajaj Pulsar 125 can be considered as the best bike under 70000 as it provides an approximate mileage of 62km/l at economic conditions. The bike also comes with a large fuel tank that can carry up to 11.5 liters of fuel.

Honda CB Shine SP gets the power of stopping from two 130mm drum brakes. However, like the previous bike on our list of best bikes under 70000, if you want to get the disc-drum variant, then you would have to spend a little more money.

To make the braking system more effective, Honda has also added the exclusive CBS in their two-wheeler. The entry-level version of the scooter comes with two drum brakes for carrying out the braking duties.

The wheelbase of Super Splendor measures at 1,265mm, which is also quite decent for a commuter bike. However, regarding its dimensions, the only drawback of the bike is its ground clearance, which is quite low (150mm).

(Ex-Showroom*): INR 59,950/-
The bike is now available in two variants, one of which comes with drum units while the other one gets a disc brake at the front.
The brand new version of Hero Glamour comes with a length of 2005mm, a height of 1070mm, and a width of 735mm. Thus, if you have an average height, then you will face any issues regarding its dimensions.
It also comes with an excellent seat height of 790mm, which should be comfortable for everyone. However, like the bike above, this one also comes with a ground clearance of 150mm, which is not that good. Thus, if you decide to take the bike in harsh road conditions, then you might face some issues regarding it.
In terms of producing power and torque, Hero Glamour is considered by many as the best bike under 70000.It features a 124.7cc, 4-stroke engine, which can generate a maximum power of 9.1ps and a peak torque of 10.35Nm.

The remodeled version of Honda Activa 5G comes with a length of 1761mm, a width of 710mm, and a height of 1158mm. It also gets a wheelbase of 1238mm, which is quite good for a commuter scooter. Thus, even when you are riding the two-wheeler at a higher speed, you will not face any issues regarding balance.
Another thing, which helps to improve its stability, is its tubeless tires, as they provide a nice amount of grip on any road. Honda Activa 5G is powered by a 109.19cc, 4-stroke engine, which generates a maximum power of 8bhp at 7500rpm and a peak torque of 9Nm at 5500rpm.

(Ex-Showroom*): INR 53,741/-
The rear section of the scooter features a large pillion grab rail, a fuel-filler cap, and a fully-LED taillight. TVS Jupiter gets the power of running from a 109.7cc, air-cooled engine, which is quite common among the bikes in the range of 50000 to 70000.

Along with the exotic appearance, it also features new color schemes and numerous modern features, which make it even more appealing. One of the reasons, which make most of the people to consider Passion Pro 110 as the best bike under 70000, is its dimensions.
(Ex-Showroom*): INR 56,100/-
The bike comes with a height of 1087mm, a width of 720mm, and a length of 1962mm, which is excellent for a commuter bike. Along with this, it also features a subtle seating position that makes the two-wheeler even more comfortable to ride.

For braking, the entry-level version of the two-wheeler carries two 130mm drum units, one at the front and the other at the rear. However, if you wish to buy the disc variant by spending a little more money, then you will get a 240mm disc brake at the front.
When talking about fuel efficiency, Passion Pro can surely be considered as one of the top 10 bikes in India within this price range. At economic conditions, the two-wheeler can provide you with a mileage of almost 60km/l, which is quite astonishing for a commuter motorcycle. It also comes with a huge fuel tank that can carry nearly 11 liters of fuel.
The Passion Pro 110 gets the power of running from a 109.15cc engine, which produces 7kW of power and 9Nm of torque. However, unlike some of its rivals, the bike comes with a 4-speed transmission system, which is not that good.

Thus, to keep the reputation of the series alive, the manufacturing company has recently launched a new bike with the name of Discover 125.
(Ex-Showroom*): INR 58,752/-
As the bike has been designed based on its 110cc counterpart, it looks almost similar to it. Thus, it comes with the same large headlight, a stylish taillight, and a long seat. However, unlike its sibling, Discover 125 is available in two variants.
Bajaj Discover 125 comes with a 124.5cc DTS-i engine, which produces a power of 11ps at 7500rpm and a torque of 11Nm at 5500rpm. Along with this, it also comes with a 5-speed gearbox that helps to improve the overall effectiveness of the engine.

As one of the best bikes under 70000, the two-wheeler comes with a combination of telescopic forks and nitrox absorbers to carry out the suspension duties.

Along with this, the new version of Hero glamour comes with an innovative and refreshing look, semi-digital instrument console, and the new self-start feature. However, like its previous version, Glamour i3s also comes with a 124.7cc, air-cooled engine that generates 11.5bhp of power and 11Nm of torque.
(Ex-Showroom*): INR 62,250/-
For providing support to the motor, Hero also added the same 4-speed gearbox with it too. With the help of these two, the bikes can go from 0km to 60km within only 7 seconds.
The suspension duties of the bike are carried out by telescopic forks and 5-step hydraulic shock absorbers. Thus, you will face no issues with the handling of the two-wheeler. To ensure better control on any road condition, Hero has also added wider tubeless tires with their bike.
Like its predecessor, Glamour i3s also comes with two different braking variants. The entry-level bike features 130mm drum unit for braking while the other one comes with a combination of disc and drum brakes to do the same. However, both the variants lack the coveted Anti-braking System.
In terms of comfort, Hero Glamour i3s is still the best bike in 60000 to 70000 range because of its comfortable dimensions and seating position. The seat of the two-wheeler is also quite soft. Thus, even if you ride it for quite some time, you will feel any discomfort while sitting.

- The bike is much cheaper to maintain than some of its rivals
- The engine of the bike quite potent
- One of the best bikes in this range in terms of fuel efficiency

It also comes with some brand new features, such as a metal heat shield and LED headlight, which the other lacked.
(Ex-Showroom*): INR 57,096/-
As mentioned before, Aviator comes with the same 109.19cc, 4-stroke engine, just like Activa and Dio. Thus, like the previous models, Aviator’s motor is also quite potent and can produce a power of 8bhp and torque of 8.94Nm.
To improve the efficacy of the engine, Honda has also paired it up with a V- Matic transmission system. With the help of these two parts, Honda Aviator can achieve a top speed of 82km/h, which is much better than some of the bikes under 50000 to 70000.
The Honda Aviator comes with three variants. The entry-level model comes with drum brakes and steel wheels. The second one is a little bit pricier than the base model and features alloy wheels. However, if you buy this variant, you will still get drum units for braking.
Nevertheless, if you are not happy with these two, then you can also go for the third version, which comes with both alloy wheels and a front disc brake.
To catch the attention of the fuel-efficient two-wheeler lovers, Honda has equipped their scooter with the Honda Eco Technology system. Thus, in economic conditions, Honda Aviator is known to provide a mileage of 60km/l.

Other than this, the meter console of the bike looks quite simple, just like Yamaha Saluto. Because of being the smaller version of Saluto, the Saluto RX draws the power for running from a 110cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine.
(Ex-Showroom*): INR 53,080/-
Upon reaching its full potential, the motor can produce 7.5ps of power and 8.5Nm of torque. Like most of the other Yamaha bikes below 70000, Saluto RX also comes with a 4-speed transmission system that provides support to its engine.
For keeping the bike stable while riding at a higher speed, Yamaha has equipped it with telescopic forks and swing-arm absorbers. Along with this, the motorcycle also comes with wider wheels to provide you with much more comfortable riding experience.
However, unlike some other Yamaha bikes below 70000, the tires of Saluto RX are not tubeless. Thus, you might experience some balancing issues while riding the bike in challenging road conditions.
For braking, the bike features two drum units, one of which is placed at the front and the other one at the rear. Both the brakes come with the usual size of 130mm and are equipped with the Unified Braking System. Thus, even though the braking units are quite outdated, they will still perform quite efficiently.

- It provides a significant amount of mileage
