Verdict about the Yamaha Enticer
The Yamaha Enticer is definitely a decent one in the cruiser segment as compared to the Royal Enfield Thunderbird or even an Eliminator, which are priced on the higher side. Maybe a tweaked Enticer with digital console and better brake handling with an upped engine to say 200cc and then 5th gear which has almost become a norm of today’s biking is what fans can ask for if they are to give it a look ahead of Avenger or even the better 125cc commuters as of today. The Enticer scores no doubt for its looks and the affordable price. It is an easy-to-manage machine that you can surely go for if you want to look different on road.
