Team-BHP 2-Wheeler of the Year, 2022. Edit: It's the Royal Enfield Hunter 350!

It's time to look back at the year and cast your vote for The Team-BHP Two Wheeler of the Year. This is where YOU - the BHPian - will choose our Two-Wheeler of 2022. The Team-BHP 2WOTY is by owners & enthusiasts, not advertorial experts & paid jury members. Just as well since us bike owners are the ones who pay the industry's bills .

Listed below are the launches of 2022.
  • The contenders have been sorted in a price-ascending order (cheapest first).
  • It's only ALL-NEW bikes that are included in our 2WOTY award. That excludes the "refreshed" headlamp & tail-light versions, facelifts and engine variants.
  • This is a public poll. Other BHPians will be able to see what bike you have voted for.
  • Models costing over 20 lakh rupees have been excluded from our 2WOTY. Reason = Low relevance & commitment to the Indian marketplace.
  • Similarly, few niche players have been excluded too.
  • As has always been the case, we insist there will only be ONE Team-BHP Two Wheeler of the Year. Why? Simply because we don't believe in handing out an award for the "engine of the year" or "headlamp of the year" (as examples). Some award ceremonies have 25 awards to ensure there's one for each bike manufacturer (aka advertiser) in India. We have no such inclination, and will only focus on the best, most important new two-wheeler of 2022.

Looking forward to your votes, and also the reasoning behind your choice. Thanks!

re: Team-BHP 2-Wheeler of the Year, 2022. Edit: It's the Royal Enfield Hunter 350!

Voted for the Suzuki V-Storm 250 SX

It's a perfect balance between small bikes and one can be engaged with it for a longer period. A dear friend has got one so I get to experience it once in a while.

Seems like a Chinese invasion in the polls, Keeway, Zontes, QJ Motors. I don't trust this model as one day the Importer company decides to shut shop and everything vanishes in thin air.

Moto Morini X-Cape excites me, will test ride one for sure!

So did the Tiger Sport 660 but the fun factor of the Trident is robbed here and the 660 sport is left in the middle ground!

TVS Ronin Vs RE Hunter is the best motorcycling debate of the year. Ride each to find your own answer!

BMW proves how big the Bavarian badge is with the 310RR, riders want it more than the already available and better equipped Apache 310RR

KTM RC390 gradually has improved as the best track tool, experts say you've more fun at the track with a smaller bike. I'm no expert!

Very less big bikes launched this year. Suzuki Katana is special. Tiger 1200 is Triumph's foray in the Big league and it pleads, do consider it before putting your retirement funds into the mighty GS/A or the fast Multi Strada V4.

Let's expect more middleweight super bikes on Indian shores.

One winner is fine but EV doesn't fit in atleast from the heart!

Happy riding,

re: Team-BHP 2-Wheeler of the Year, 2022. Edit: It's the Royal Enfield Hunter 350!

My vote for this year's bike of the year imo is the RE Hunter. Its a relatively lighter bike, cheaper, good looking and imo hits the perfect spot for a retro - modern vehicle. The Ronin is a close second, but the Ronin lacks the character which the Hunter possesses. The Hunter is an Enfield at heart, but also massively modernized (yes, it is never a proper "enfield", but it retains most of the character but also combining it to a modern package).

Just based on merit it's the V2, but the hunter is more significant in terms of Indian market. The F77 is so avante garde that it gets my vote , also a bangalorian supporting the local products I guess.
