Petrol prices slashed for two-wheeler users in Jharkhand. The state government has announced that it would give a concession of Rs 25 per litre of petrol to two-wheelers in the state. According to the Chief Minister of the state, Mr Hemant Soren, the scheme will be implemented from 26 January 2022.
Mr Soren said that the scheme will benefit the two-wheeler riders in the state especially the lower-income and middle-class group since the petrol prices have become very high in the past few months.
However, it is yet to be seen how the government will implement this scheme successfully in the state of Jharkhand.
At present, the petrol price in Jharkhand is around Rs 98 per litre. Though this price is less when compared to cities such as Chennai, Mumbai, Kochi, etc. Considering the per capita income of the state, the decision will be a boon to many people in the state.
Since we are an automotive publication, here is the list of five Indian motorcycles (currently in production) with the biggest fuel tanks.
1. Mahindra Mojo
On top of this list is the almost “forgotten” Mahindra Mojo. The Mahindra Mojo is a motorcycle designed from scratch to be a touring-friendly motorcycle. For this, Mahindra has fitted the Mojo with a massive 21-litre fuel tank.
This means the Mahindra Mojo could go further on a tank full of fuel with minimal breaks during long rides. Powering the Mahindra Mojo is a 295cc liquid-cooled engine with 25.35bhp and 25.96Nm of torque.
2. Kawasaki Ninja 300
The Kawasaki Ninja is the only two-cylinder motorcycle on this list, but the Japanese sportbike sports the second-largest fuel tank on this list with a 17L capacity. Powering the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is a 4-stroke Parallel-Twin engine with 38.46bhp and 26.1Nm of torque.
3. Royal Enfield Himalayan
Royal Enfield Himalayan is a motorcycle designed for long rides and exploring new roads in remote places. To suit this requirement, The Royal Enfield Himalayan is not only equipped with off-road friendly hardware but also equipped the motorcycle with a large 15-litre fuel tank.
Powering the Royal Enfield Himalayan is a 411cc air-cooled SOHC engine with 24.3bhp and 32Nm of torque.
4. Royal Enfield Meteor 350
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 replaces the Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350, and like its predecessor, the Meteor 350 is a comfortable motorcycle with phenomenal mile-munching capability.
Though the Meteor 350 has improved over the Thunderbird in every aspect, thanks to a smaller 15L fuel tank, the Meteor 350 has to settle for the third spot on this list. Powering the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 is a 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with 20.1bhp and 27Nm of torque.
5. Yamaha FZ 25
The Yamaha FZ 25 is not only a naked city slicker, but it is also an excellent touring-friendly motorcycle with its torquey engine and comfortable riding posture.
The Yamaha FZ 25 comes with a large 14L fuel tank. Though it may not seem much, its low 153kg kerb weight and fuel-efficient 249cc engine make sure that you go farther with every drop of fuel going inside the engine. The 249cc air-cooled SOHC engine makes 20.51bhp and 20.1Nm of torque.
Thoughts About Jharkhand Government’s Decision To Cut Fuel Prices For Two-Wheeler Users
Though this is a much-welcomed decision in my point of view, it is yet to be seen how the government will implement this “special pricing” effectively.
