Typically in Sri Lanka, when a buyer is searching for a motorcycle, what they primarily look for is a two-wheeler that is cheaper in price while also being reliable and fuel economic on local roads. This has always been the trend ever since motorcycles became a top personal transporter in our country. While this may be the case for most buyers, one thing is certainly true, which is that nearly every rider, if it is economical, would love to buy a much better performing motorcycle than the bike they may already have.

Since we as Carmudi also understand your need for an improved bike, we have come up with five motorcycle options that offer larger engine displacements, which are not overpriced and are widely available within Sri Lanka.


Therefore, the top five contestants that we picked and made it to our top list are as follow:

  • TVS Apache
  • Honda CB Unicorn
  • Suzuki Gixxer
  • Yamaha FZ S
  • Yamaha FZ 16

These competitors were assessed in the three major aspects that matter for every motorcycle rider, and the final winners of each category can be seen below.

  • Lowest Price (Brand New Models as of 2016)
  1. Honda CB Unicorn: Rs. 295,500
  2. TVS Apache: Rs. 310,900 to Rs. 359,900
  3. Suzuki Gixxer: Rs. 348,500 to Rs. 352,000

While searching for a power bike, if you are also keen on the price of that motorcycle, then by far the best possible two wheeler option for you within the domestic motorcycle market is the Honda CB Unicorn. Being widely available throughout the island in prominent Honda dealers, including the official distributor for the Honda bike brand, this motorcycle is one of the best value for money super two wheelers sold in Sri Lanka. Powered by a capable engine that can produce nearly 15 bhp of raw energy, the CB Unicorn can be bought for a price of less than Rs. 300.000 from the local motorcycle market.

  • Highest Engine Power (Maximum Power in BHP and Torque in Nm)
  1. TVS Apache: 17.3 bhp @ 8500 rpm/ 15.5 Nm @ 6500 rpm
  2. Honda CB Unicorn: 14.5 bhp @ 8000 rpm/ 14.6 Nm @ 6000 rpm
  3. Suzuki Gixxer: 14 bhp @ 8000 rpm/ 14 Nm @ 6000 rpm

Obviously, if you are looking for a bike with a bigger engine, then the main thing that is in your mind is to by the most powerful bike for your daily activities. While there are super bikes that are built only for sports purposes, the most powerful and widely available street bike in Sri Lanka that will not cost you an arm and a leg, is actually the TVS Apache. This superb two-wheeler has the capability to produce more than 17 bhp of raw power at 8500 rpm and more than 15 Nm of torque at just 6500 rpm, becoming the leading affordable power bike in Sri Lanka.

  • Best Mileage (Fuel Economy in km/l)
  1. Honda CB Unicorn: 62 km/l
  2. Suzuki Gixxer: 59 km/l
  3. Yamaha FZ S: 50 km/l

One of the main aspects that will either make or break a bike deal is the level of fuel efficiency that can be achieved by a two-wheeler. Regardless of how powerful the bike may be, if it drains your pocket even for a simple ride, then it is not worth your time and money in the long term. The Honda CB Unicorn came out on the top when it came to fuel efficiency on local roads, with the bike achieving an impressive 62 km/l, even under its larger engine capacity for a combined ride cycle, on the roads seen in Sri Lanka.
