None. I wouldn’t recommend you any bike either. Its the most dangerous road especially talegaon region with long trailers.

Keep a bike in mumbai at a relatives house. Travel by bus, ride it in city, park it back and catch a bus.

Else buy a cng car will be cheaper than scooter.

agree with above comment. Bike in india is not for these type of busy highways. Also all powerful superish-bikes have service range of 3.5 – 5K km, which is add further in terms of costlier on pocket & low in safety in compare to a diesel car or cng used car.

I am assuming you don’t know car and bike driving.
As same as above comments, will be best if you can learn car driving. An old i10/alto CNG will cost no more than 250k. Alternative option will be bike(bajaj avenger preferred for long ride) and keep scooter as last option. For that honda activa will be best as their parts can be available on any highway in india.

Kept 2 bajaj pulsars at both locations for city travel.

Started pune office and got good response. So 3 days in pune and 4 days in. Mumbai.
Thats from 2004 to 2010. When i bought a flat in pune and family shifted.
Saw horrific accidents on road during that time so suggested OP to avoid by scooter.
Now any minute i am ready to ride or drive to Sangli or Kolhapur or Goa but not to Mumbai hate the traffic and parking issues.

I hav petrol car.
Second hand CNG fitting would be good idea? Getting second hand CNG fitting in 26k.

Would thr be any problem in case of insurance needed? (Never claimed any insurance before) As RTI registration for second hand cng not get done. My car is 12 yr old bt hardly used for 50k km and in good condition.
