    These are your options.
    Victor and Livo in 110cc category
    Glamour, Saluto and Shine in 125cc category

    No idea about entry level 150cc bikes like Achiever, SZ RR, V15 and all. Whether they discontinued or yet to update to latest safety norms.

    Bikes like FZ, Hornet, Gixxer will overshoot your budget.

    Apart from the ones mentioned above, you can also check out good old Pulsars, they look good and perform well

    I'd recommend the RTR 160 4V or the new FZ.If you want higher efficiency,You can look at the 125cc ones too.

    Under one lakh, you can find good old Pulsar 150, there are 3 variants to choose from. But if you want to go with something 125 cc, I'd suggest Honda Shine, it's a very good bike with a wonderful price.

    Yeah, I see 3 variants of Pulsar 150
    Pulsar
    Pulsar Neon
    Pulsar Twin Disc

    I see many third party site articles says ABS variant of Pulsar 150 reached showroom, but Bajaj yet to update their product page.

    Going by the article, 7k more for single channel ABS than the non ABS variant. That means both Pulsar and Twin disc variant will cost on-road more than 1 lakh.

    Don't know why Neon edition is so cheap comparing with Pulsar (standard variant), about ~11k cheaper. If Neon edition comes with ABS, that will cost less than 1 lakh.

    Just go with Pulsar, either 150 or 180. They are best combination of looks, riding experience and economy for any rider.
