News Updates on Benelli Imperiale 400, Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Hero Moto Corp Mavrick 440

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am really confused between Benelli 400, Royal Enfield classic 350 and Jawa standard, please suggest?
  • Selecting the right bike would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, performance figures, features required, etc. The 2021 Classic 350 is an all-new bike! Everything from the motor and frame to the underpinnings and ergonomics has been reworked. Coming to the bike’s hardware, the new Classic uses a new fatter 41mm telescopic fork up front and a twin shock setup at the rear. Even the brakes have been updated to Bybre units at both ends which clamp on to a 300mm front and a 270mm rear disc brake. Moving onto the ergonomics, the Classic 350 features a new rider and pillion seat with thicker cushioning which improves ride comfort. The handlebar sits taller, offering an upright riding posture. Coming to the styling, the bike looks pretty similar to the outgoing model, however, it's been cleverly redesigned. On the other hand, the Benelli Imperiale 400 is a wholesome package that offers a vibe-free motor full of character. Its comfortable riding posture and well-balanced suspension setup add to its riding experience. Having said that, the recent price hike due to the BS6 update has made the Imperiale 400 a rather expensive proposition. Whereas, the Jawa uses a short-stroke, performance-oriented engine with a 6-speed transmission. Sure it’s fast, but it lacks the retro laidback charm of an under the square engine, something we think is crucial for a buyer in this segment. The 293cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine generates 26.51PS of power and 27.05Nm of torque on the Jawa. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. Which is the best, Royal Enfield Classic 350 or KTM 200 Duke?
  • Both the bikes are good in their own forte. Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a great bike in fact that RE engineers and designers have maintained the charming DNA of its predecessor but without the niggles. It was very easy for the brand to overdo the iconic Classic 350, but they have managed to find the right balance and the updates have been done only where required. On the other hand, the design update has given the KTM 200 Duke a new lease of life. Also, the fact that the new BS6-compliant motor does not lose out on performance almost makes it feel like a win-win. That said, the substantial hike in price means it is now more expensive than larger motorcycles such as the Suzuki Gixxer 250. However, when it comes to thrills, the KTM 200 Duke delivers it in spades! Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

Q. Which one is good to buy, Royal Enfield Classic 350 or Honda H'ness CB350?
  • Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a great bike in fact that RE engineers and designers have maintained the charming DNA of its predecessor but without the niggles. It was very easy for the brand to overdo the iconic Classic 350, but they have managed to find the right balance and the updates have been done only where required. On the other hand, The Honda CB350 is a great option for someone looking for a retro-styled motorcycle with sprightly performance and the legendary reliability of Honda is an additional bonus. So if you’re looking for the above, the CB350 makes better sense. One thing that goes against the Japanese bike is Honda’s strategy of selling it from the Big Wing dealerships only which restricts access to many buyers in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. The Honda CB350 is an impressive bike, but it lacks a bit of soul and character, something that can't be quantified - and something which the Classic 350 has in abundance. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

    Elegance with Powerful Performance 

    A Classic sportfisherman, the Benelli Imperiale 400 adroitly combines strong interpretation with timeless indulgence. Its reliable 374cc Mechanism guarantees a staid and energetic ride, which makes it the full option for both megacity commutes and tardy passages. The traditional instruments and antique- themed bodywork of the motorbike inspire a feeling of literal supplication in its two wheeler. Although the riding experience is bettered by its affable running, the grand package might be farther bettered by better retardation interpretation. With its tasteful Expression and dynamic capability, the Benelli Imperiale 400 is a name agent that provides riders with a strong but traditional road ride.

    Rider footrest 

    I had test ride with heavy weight plum pillion rider. Didn't cross 60km/hr speed. Posting some pros & cons in my view.PROS-- looks are super nice to fall in love with it. Handling is vert comfortable & good. The sitting comfort is excellent. Engine is super smooth. Suspension is too nice. Breaking is also good. Pickup is good. Its heavy but weight isn't felt while riding. Overall built quality & design is excellent. CONS--The major issue is engine heat. Heat isn't noticed when bike is in motion. But when its halted we can actually feel the heat on calf & thighs. The gear shift lever is too long for mid size shoe & heal shift lever is absent. There is no place for tool kit storage. the rider footrest is large & comfortable but its much extended outward which keeps brushing & hitting the calf. The pillion seat is independent but there is no option to detach it. The company doesn't provide optional backrest for pillion rider as accessories. Don't know about its fuel economy & service cost & aftersales service.

    Comfortable cruisers 

    It is one of the most comfortable cruisers that I’ve owned to date. Wonderful riding posture, Minimal or almost no vibrations at over 100kmph, A beautiful console to look at while riding, a Neat and clean paint job and most importantly! pretty dedicatedly assembled motorbike which is a delight to a rider's eye. (bhp and torque are the two totally out of syllabus subjects) the main concern that I have with Benelli is their service, I live in Guwahati, Assam and the dealer here is running an entire service station with just one mechanic and that too an amateur.The only thing they seem to know is an oil change and replacement of parts and the strangest of’em all is that you can’t purchase any parts and service on your own, not even the engine oil. My bike’s running a mileage of 20 to 22 km and they couldn’t figure out the reason why !!!! without proper after-sales service, i don’t believe any company could survive this forever-growing competitive market of motorbikes no matter how good is the product.

    For me it was love 

    For me it was love at first sight. I saw the ad on Facebook and fell for it. I was eagerly waiting for the price to be announced and booked the red one the same day. After more than three months' of waiting I got my hands on the bike on 6th of February. The first thing that struck me during the test-ride was the refinement and absolute quality. The engine offers quite powerful performance and urges you to twist the grip further. Ride quality is excellent. The bike is more suited for long highway rides but it handles quite well in city traffic, except for the slightly large turning radius. The retro looks are simply amazing. I am still in the process of running-in the engine, so I can only say that mileage is in excess of 30 kmpl. The exhaust has a muted roar that is so thrilling both on the highways as well as the city roads. Engine heat is a real problem and I hope it will reduce after the running-in period. 06/03/2020:I got back the bike after the first free service at 1000 kms and the service charge was a mere Rs. 1365. I need to go for a ride and check whether the engine heat has been reduced. I was told by the Service manager that it will come down since the engine oil has been changed from the normal to a synthetic one.

    Benelli imperiale 

    Benelli imperiale is a bike guys will love, It just makes people head turn for sure.The best part is it has no vibrations, Yes its heavy bike, With the distribution of weight you will never feel it.The road presence, Engine refinement, Build quality, Ruggedness suspension, Retro look is all a plus point.Turning radius is very less, Uturn will be challenging.Heat issues in traffic jams is evident else where not a problem at all.Rear tyre and tube is not available in market size is 130 80/18.Coming to the 0 star moment : they have an awesome product but service and parts cost, Will sink this product to the bottom.Exhorbiant service cost and parts cost will make you bleed.A simple example clutch cable and installation will cost 800 where as the same product same spec of himalayan will cost 300.Lack of service centers and inexperienced mechanics.Cost of replacement, Availability of parts to name a few are drawbacks.Guys at adishwars auto, Work on service and availability of spare parts at economical price that's the key for success in india.Do good marketing really not enough.

    Hearing great opinions about this bike, the royal enfield classic 350 is even better than the royal enfield bullet 350 model. The structure and designing is almost similar but with some added features which makes it more special. The stated price range is obviously high owing to this brand name. It provides a good speed and its body weight is a bit heavy.

    I have the grey gun metal classic, First of all great bike for enjoying comfortable and relax rides.The major warnings are handling the bike weight as if you break hard or not able to handle it in the corners 100% you are gonna crash because of bike weight.Positives still remains same, Unmatchable vibes, New j series engine which is smoother and you can get 38kmpl if riding at 80-90 kmph on highways.

    The royal enfield classic 350 is renowned for its vintage charm, Solid build, And thumping exhaust note.It's a bike that appeals to riders looking for a retro aesthetic and relaxed cruising experience.However, Some riders may find its performance lacking compared to modern bikes, Especially in terms of power and technology.Maintenance can also be a bit more involved due to its traditional design.Overall, If you prioritize style and character over cutting-edge performance, The classic 350 could be a great choice.

    The classic 350 is one of the best gem in the royal enfield section, It is not meant for mileage, Not for long rides, Not for racing, But it gives you the best feeling in you, It provides a royal attitude.It is worth the pricing, It is for the people who wants a daily ride as a therapy, Its sound may be disturbing, But it is royal enfield! only bad thing is that, Everyone is buying royal enfield, But the classic hits different.You can buy if you want a simple but heavy and good looking hot bike.

    Perfect bike for me 

    With the classic retro design Classic 350 gives impressive engine with the lots of torque and powerful performance with the smooth 5 speed gearbox but the features are less. With the relaxed riding posture it also handles very well and the engine is highly better than Honda Hness CB350. The suspension gives good level of comfort and smooth ride and the highway performance is brillant and i think it is a best bike for me.
