    a part of your active lifestyle 

    The most adorable thing about this model is that its availability in vibrant shades, I got my Bajaj NS 400 at a very affordable price from a nearby showroom a few months back as it is second hand. It is black in colour, imparting an attractive and classy looks. It is a perfect fit to all my commute businesses that means it is driver-friendly. I have already taken my bike for two trips and it has really been comfortable operating and driving this model.

    my best bike 

    The Bajaj Pulsar NS400z is an upcoming sports naked bike. Top speed is expected to be around 160-170 kmph. The price is a major selling point. The Bajaj NS400 is expected to be priced between Rs 1.9 - 2.0 lakh. It offer mileage around 30-35 kilometers per lite. The features are unknown yet, but might include a basic instrument cluster, anf LED headlamps. Overall the NS400 could be a great option . The KTM 390 Duke might be a better fit.

    It offers everything 

    390 Adventure is for everything like it is compact for beginner friendly, capable for open roads, great for proper long rides adventures and its engine is excellent for touring but the seat height is high that is not suitable for all buyers. On road performance of this bike is just incredible and the price is very well for what it offers but is not that good for off roader. The highway performance is excellent but the seat is not very comfortable for long rides.

    drive to the zenith 

    It is a versatile bike that bridges the gap between street bikes and adventure bikes. It offers good performance on the road, with the capability to tackle light off-road adventures. While exact mileage figures might vary depending on riding style i ride , but the estimated mileage 30kmpl which is very low .
