  • Benelli Imperiale 400 is a retro-styled segment motorcycle and is set to debut next year and vill compete afainst 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. That said, let's take a closer look at what the Imperiale 400 has to offer.The brand hasn't revealed its mileage figure yet. So, we would suggest you to wait till its launch.

Q. Which is better classic 350 or classic 500 in performance?
  • M having stealth black 500 and its such a special feeling to own the RE which cannot be expressed in words but when it comes to 350 or 500 it is totally on your usage as the first thing is mileage which does not differ much as i m getting around 30+ and in 350 it is around 35 but when it comes to driving for sure you feel d diff the 500 variant is much more plesant in driving. so in my opinion just go for 500 but if you are luking price wise u can choose 350 bcz in looks both are same if you are not choosing the 500 only colour variant
  • Difference will be on the inflow of the fuel . 350 is with carburetor and 500 is with fuel injection. 500 got more pickup but lack in fuel efficiency as compare to the counterpart.i' ve rode my classic 350 for almost 5 years, most of the times in the himalayan region.i found no issue regarding the capacity of the engine.on my personal level i would have picked himalayan for classic 500. decision is yours brother. thanks and keep thumping
  • Having owned the Classic 500 I can tell you that it is not worth the extra money. The performance upgrade is not noticeable. I would suggest you gofor the Classic 350 . But the one thing I noticed is the exclusivity of the Classic 500. As far as I know there are only around 10 in my city out of the 1000s of bullets and that really is something special, so if you are looking for exclusivity then go for the 500.

Q. Which will look better and exclusive between Signals 350 or Stealth Black 500 - Classic 500?
  • If u are taking the bike in near feature go for the stelth black. If u have some time to wait. Re 500 is coming out with a new color. To be specific. Brown color which came in pagases edition. Other suggestion never buy a matt finish bike. It is hard to maintain.
  • Both are good cloured bike but it depends which suites your personality.
  • Noting.. Royal Enfield has not been customer friendly... better go for other... Service and reliability very low
