One of the most critical yet ignored parts of a motorcycle is the alloy wheels. Sure, spoked wheels look retro and offer more sturdiness, but alloy wheels are lighter and gain the most advantage because they can accommodate tubeless tyres that give you the freedom to ride the bike even in case of punctures. In this article, we discuss seven motorcycles with the best-looking alloy wheels under 500cc. More like motorcycle designs as some of them share the same design on multiple bikes.
Yamaha R15 V3/V4/ MT 15
These are the same set of wheels that you get to see on the Yamaha R15 V3/V4 and even on the MT15. They undoubtedly look good, and we believe these are the only set of wheels that come with many flavours of colours. Most of them look good, while the others look unique, and the one shown in the image with the Racing Blue looks the best.
Bajaj Pulsar NS200/RS200
The alloy wheels standard on the Pulsar NS and RS 200 have a unique shape, and we do like them over the other regular boring straight-lined designs seen on other bikes. They come in black, white and red, among which black looks best. Initially, there were reports of these wheels cracking open pretty quickly when riding on potholes. But, it was soon resolved with stronger wheels that come as standard.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
This has to be one of the best looking alloy wheel designs and hence gets featured on the list of motorcycles with the best-looking alloy wheels. That radial pattern looks very stylish and light, which aids in a quick change of directions. Now that’s TVS racing pedigree on a sports naked that can be used as a daily commuter. This is called versatility.

KTM Duke 125/200/250/390 and RC 125/200/390
While this might not be the first motorcycle to feature orange wheels, it was the one that made it look good. It looked good on all of KTM’s motorcycles, from the naked Duke to the faired RC. We all know about how delicate these wheels were when they were first introduced. KTM said the lighter wheels were in the interest of making the bikes more agile on corners, but they soon had to replace them with heavier and stronger alloys that looked the same but were more Indian-road friendly.
TVS Apache RR310/ BMW G310 R/GS
For a very long time, apart from a select few, many made traditional designs that almost looked the same. Then TVS came back with a bang with the introduction of the Apache RR310. These wheels look beautiful, and interestingly they are shared between the RR310 and both the BMW G310 twins. We won’t complain about that since they look good on all the bikes it features.
Bajaj Dominar 400
The Bajaj Dominar 400 has one of the best-looking alloy wheels, and we are sure many of you will agree. That design is unique and charming, just like the rest of the bike. They are pretty heavy, but they do contemplate the cruiser nature of the motorcycle.
Kawasaki Ninja 300
Next on the list of motorcycles with the best-looking alloy wheels is the Kawasaki Ninja 300. The baby Ninja initially had a different alloy wheel design, and as it evolved, it became much better. They compliment the supersport design of the entire bike and fits very well in place.
These are designs that stand out and do not look dull as the ones on other bikes. We might have missed out on a few of them, and that’s why we have our lovely readers for. So, go ahead and let us know other bikes that you feel need to be on this list of motorcycles with the best-looking alloy wheels.
