you can try hero: hawk nu age or bsa mach (both are kind of same)

Please go through various internet articles on Bike Shaped Objects (BSO)and how they differ from real bikes and why they should be avoided. BSA cycles are BSOs. Their quality is cheap and there is no customer support. The customer support personnel appear to have problems reading and writing in English so they receive mails but do not respond to them. Their customer support helpline keeps playing a recorded message that they will call back later but that never happens. Even their Bandra-Kurla Complex office was given a call and they promised to forward my complaint to the customer care in Nasik but still no response. Please do not buy BSOs and suffer later.
