    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is better Royal Enfield Classic 350 signals or Benelli Imperiale 400?
    • I have a 2019 RE Classic 350 (not the Signals edition), as well as a Benelli Imperiale 400 which was delivered to me on February 1, 2020. I use both the motorcycles on alternate days. I find that using the RE is easier in city traffic because of its low weight, right turning radius and revving engine. For long rides on open stretches of the highway, the Benelli outshines the RE because of it’s smooth engine, vibration free operation at higher speeds and stability due to it’s heavy weight. The Benelli is difficult to get in and out of right parking spots because of it’s larger dimensions and heavier weight. You have to consider the environment in which you are going to primarily ride before making a decision. In my opinion, both are excellent motorcycles.
    • I have used the Royal Enfield Electra 350 for around 6 years which is quite similar to the Classic 350 except for the heavier engine crank. I feel the RE has an edge over the Imperiale 400 in city traffic due to the smaller turning radius and lesser body weight. It may also offer better mileage. I consider the Imperiale 400 as much superior on many other counts.
    • No doubt, imperial 400,only issue is service cost and service centres, but if you wait, you can get new RE which will be on new chassis and new engine without vibrations

    Q. Is This bike like royal enfield classic or not... what about mileage - Imperiale 400?
    • Benelli Imperiale 400 is a retro-styled segment motorcycle and it competes against Royal Enfield. Thanks to a recent association with Hyderabad-based Mahavir Group. Some of these motorcycles include the adventure-tourer TRK 502, the Leoncino 500, and the supposed Royal Enfield competitor, the Imperiale 400. However, considering the cult-like popularity Royal Enfield enjoys in India, the Italian bikemaker has an uphill task if it intends to position the Imperiale as a worthy alternative. The mileage figure of Benelli Imperiale 400 is around 31.25 km/l. Click on the given link to compare both the bikes: Comparison. Rest we would suggest you to have a test ride of both the brand bikes so that you can check their comfort and performance.

    Q. Which one to buy for daily use Classic 350 Or Himalayan ?
    • Both the bikes have their own perks, if you are particularly looking for your daily riding then you can opt for Classic 350 as its best for the daily commute. Himalayan is a hardcore off-road tourer motorcycle that comes with minimal body panels and its steel frame and other parts add the rugged look to it which would be a great option if you take it to the off-roading. Click on the given link to compare both the bikes: Comparison. We would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.

    • Don't buy any kind of products of Royal. They sold me a second hand bike instead of new.
