I'm from India, but stay at Southern region; like Sendler says, CBR250R will suit you THE BEST, but I'm 100% sure you cannot rent it.
Reason being that, renting motorcycles are risky business in India & most rented bikes are available at Pondichery, Goa & Leh; You can find Karizma, Royal Enfield & Pulsar in abundant for rental. Karizma is quite reliable motorcycle (uses almost the same engine as CRF 230L)
Let me know if you need any help with respect to route maps, timings or accommodation.
