The Worst Designed Two Wheelers in Our Market

Recommended Posts

Every month one or more two wheeler is being launched, be it a scooter or a motorbike. The mopeds are becoming rarer with the passing times. Kinetic Engineering and TVS are the only ones in business perhaps, apart from the electri(fied)c ones.

Many or most of the newly launched ones are extremely ugly from the aesthetic point of view and only some of us may be taking this into account. The tech specs, gadgetry and the stickers/graphics are too alluring for the buyer to look into the finer aesthetic details of the two wheeler, be it a scooter or a bike.

I would rate the following as the ugliest ones rated from ugly to the ugliest sequentially according to me. The No. 10 listed is the ugliest hence. And it is not necessary that whats ugly to me must be ugly to everyone else. Maybe that's the best looking one for someone else! Alas, beauty or ugliness lies in the eyes of the beholder !

The Top 10 are :-

(1) The Honda Aviator

(2) The Honda Stunner

(3) The Bajaj Kristal

(4) The Hero Honda Karizma

(5) Yamaha Gladiator (even the new one with the minus owl like headlights)

(6)The Hero Honda Passion

(7)The Yamaha R 15

(8)The Royal Enfield Thunderbird

(9) The Bajaj  Platina (including the very brand new Platina 125 DTSi)

(10) The ugliest to look at is the Bajaj XCD 125- The front looks horrible, side view is more horrible but the rear view is the most horrible.I wonder if the designer was on probation!

So friends please also list your Top 10 or even Top 20 or more ugly two wheelers. And please be current - no discontinued models please in your list. Like the Bajaj Rave -UGLIEST EVER but dead and gone. So let that rest in solitude in its grave.

Nice topic Anjan...

My list comes here...

1) All those + and * s from HH (Every time I hear about a + from HH, a - adds

                                                  in my mind about HH's image)

2) Yamaha Gladi variants (I never expected such an ugly looking bike form

                                       Yamaha)

3) Bajaj Krystal (No one likes it)

4) Enfield Bullet Std (For its bycycle like rear tyres.)

5) Suzuki Heat and Zeus (I donno whether these are still in production. But I

                                         hate them the most)

6) Honda CBF Stunner (A full Fairing would've done more justice)

7) Unicorn (This bike remains the same since its launchsmiley7.gif..)

8) Bajaj XCD (A bike for kids by its dimensions..And a bike for no one by its

                        quality)

These are the most ugliest bikes which are currently in market IMO. Apart from this, much more craps are there like the sticker works by HH...Grand prix editions by Honda (Atleast they say)..

 My choices are:

1.LML Freedom prima: what a garish headlamp.destroyed whatever reputation made up by freedom.

2.HH Achiever: U take a 135cc bike,borrow uni's engine and make a 150cc bike.How stupid was that.

3. Libero and 1st gen Fazer: oddball headlamp destroy an otherwise decent bike.

4.Heat and Zeus: is there any USP for this bike.consider that it was suzuki's first bikes in India,u would expect more.

5.Lastly all those made in china bikes. These bikes dont deserve any clarification regarding why we dont like them.

I'm adding another bike to the list.

Today I noticed a bike in my rear view mirror and it was like a egg, so I slowed down to see what bike is it and it is Honda Stunner. It is really ugly when viewed from a distance.
