Q. I took a trail ride on Benelli 400 for 15 mints but felt heat on my right leg, I heard Benelli bike get heated very fast compare to Interceptor. - Imperiale 400?
  • No its not so.... i have been using imperiale 400 for last 10 months and drive for about 60-70 km daily but never felt that. Of course don't forget you are driving 400 CC so a bit of warmth you will feel but it does not get heated for sure...
  • Engine heat is a real problem as of now. On enquiry at the service centre I was informed that the heating will be considerably reduced after the first service.
  • I took a ride in city for 15km but i felt very heat on my right leg, especially while waiting in the signal.Kindly tell me how to rectify this

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

  • Probably, I went for a test drive with over expectations, I.Wasnt impressed at all after my test drive 9th block jayanagar, Bangalore showroom.Here are few.Points 1.Initially throttle performance is good in comparison to re meteor, However ride experience on meteor is like butter smooth, While roadster is very rough and not refined.2.In case your idea is touring bike, Roadster is a.Confused ergonomics.It's neither here or there.3.Gears don't slot well.On the dashboard it showed gear is in 0 or neutral, And then opened the clutch.Bike simply jumped, Stalled and fell.I wasn't hurt thankfully, But had to pay for minor damages, For none of my fault.At this price point if yezdi can't get their gear shifts right, Then they will never get it.So.Simply no to this new yezdis roadster and no competition to re meteor which wins this hands down.
