Q. Which bike is the best for long rides?
  • As per my opinion , RE bikes are good in order of their quality and riding comfort. I recent drove my RE TB 350 for 300 KM long drive to Trichy and back to Bangalore . After riding around 150 KMs , my left shoulder started hurting me and due to this , I couldn’t turn my head to right , if turn so , my shoulder hurts more than normal .So I have decided from then . Not to go long ride which is more than 150KMs. It remain hurts for few days after the ride finished . It’s my opinion . It may be due to my height . I am 6 ft tall .

Q. Which one is best compare to Jawa and Thunderbird 350 ABS pricing and every thing
  • Both have an engine differentials as tb350 has got 20bhp where as Jawa has 27, I would recommend for jawa as it is quick in terms of pickup and handling but doesn’t feels heavy, for tb it feels heavy and 500 is good enough rather then 350 but gotta pay some extra bucks! Take a test drive really because i own tb350 but I liked jawa 42. Still tb feels muscular and sexy when U’ll get on the shiny alloy wheels.
  • It’s your choice. As per my knowledge, comparing with all these bikes , I feel Thunderbird is the right choice , why ? Because , it is a cruiser bike and has solid construction which means heavier than the rest of all bikes which gives you more comfortable ride on road and looks like manly . Other these bikes have not much riding comfort. The Jawa bikes haven’t proven anything big in those areas as of now . It may give you some good feedback in future , may try it. As of now , you think about TB 350, but TB 350 X which is latest model and you don’t find much difference in that .think about it before buy .
  • Jawa is yet to prove itself, just a huge launch won't make it a success and company has initially failed to keep up the promise of delivering the bikes on time.Jawa is sold out till September which means even if you book today your bike might be delivered to you next year, better buy thunderbird ABS, else why don't you look for Dominar.in case you are waiting till jan then might RE comeup with the new lineup, refresh models.

Q. I want to ask which is the best bike for daily 60km ride daily? Confused between a Thunderbird and Avenger 220. The issue is I found a lot of vibrations in Tthunderbird any other suggestion is welcome.
  • I own a Avenger 220 Cruise. Must tell you the ride is really comfortable and no vibrations or difficulty in traffic. Can easily maneuver in traffic. Two things I don\\\'t like is the long wheelbase makes turn radius more, which becomes difficult while taking you turns or changing to the opposite lane. Second is pick up is average for a 220 cc engine. Rest: Low Maintainence Cost, Spare parts availability, Bajaj Service Center Availability , Pretty Good Mileage of around 25-30 Kmpl and The Best Is You can go on Long Drive in comfort, No Back Pain, Less Vibration, Less Fuel Stops and the best Cruising at 80kmpl comfortable and enjoy the Ride. Now my friend also has a Thunderbird. Same as known problems, Vibrations, Mileage Problem, High Service Charge, comparatively less service center availability and the biggest concern is the spare parts cost. Average Pick Up. Which means you\\\'ll struggle overtaking. Thunderbird although gives you a very much comfortable ride except for the vibrations. For daily commute, I wouldn\\\'t Suggest a Thunderbird. For a daily commute of 60km, you can go for Avenger 220 Street or Cruise. Other options would be NS 200 or Yamaha FZ or New Gixxer is also good I guess.
