Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I own a 2014 KTM duke 390, and I really like it, but now I am looking to buy an entry level premium adventure motorcycle. I’ve shortlisted the BMW G310 gs and the KTM Adv 390 while keeping the BS6 RE Himalayan on the back of my mind. Which one do you think, would be a better addition to my garage? (I won't be selling my OG 390).
  • As per your requirements, we would suggest you go with the Royal Enfield Himalayan. The 2021 Himalayan still features the same BS6-compliant 411cc single-cylinder engine which produces 24.31PS and 32Nm. Dual-channel ABS comes as standard which is switchable for more fun. The bike offers rather comfortable ergonomics and brilliant credentials for touring and off-roading this adds to the Himalayan’s comfort and confidence to venture into the unknown. Moreover, Royal Enfield has introduced 2021 Himalayan with more features and more comfort. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -BMW G 310 GS vs KTM 390 Adventure vs Royal Enfield Himalayan.
Q. Which bike is better, G 310 GS, Dominar 400, RC 390 or Himalayan?
  • All four bikes are good in their forte. BMW G 310 GS looks just like larger GS cousins, Comfortable upright ergos for touring, Is the lightest ADV in its class. Good looks, healthy performance, competent underpinnings, and a host of features. All for just Rs 1.92 lakh. If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, nothing eclipses the Dominar 400 in the sub-2 lakh rupee price bracket. Whereas, if you're looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportbike that'll help you hone your skills, the KTM RC 390 makes perfect sense. However, the bike's committed riding posture means it's more suited for track than a road. And in that case, you could consider the TVS Apache RR 310 which has been significantly improved post its BS6 update. The Royal Enfield Himalayan was the motorcycle that kick-started the affordable adventure touring genre in India in 2016. Despite the arrival of new rivals, it continues to outshine them as an all-rounder. RE has ironed out the majority of the issues that plagued the first-gen motorcycle, but brakes still remain an Achilles heel. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -Long Term Review: Introducing TVS Eurogrip ProTorq Extreme Tyres For KTM 390 Duke..-2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan: Has RE Perfected The Formula?.
Q. Which bike I should buy, KTM Duke 390 or Adventure 390?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. If everyday performance is your top priority, nothing offers the same sort of explosive acceleration and razor-sharp handling as the 390 Duke -- in this price range or in a segment above. Now more mature and refined in its latest form, the 2020 KTM 390 Duke still remains a well-rounded package tailor-made for thrill-seekers. Whereas, KTM 390 Adventure features excellent ergos for touring, Retains on-road performance of 390 Duke, Packed with electronic goodies. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more -2020 KTM 390 Duke BS6: First Ride Review..-KTM 390 Adventure: Road Test Review.

    Catching motorcycle 

    This is undoubtedly an eye-catching motorcycle. You'll often notice people turning their heads. It is also very comfortable and has "excellent" braking capability. Never seen a bike with such terrific braking performance. However, It does not seem to be very reliable. On the first day of delivery, The bike stopped after 5 km and we had to tow it back to the garage. The next day the starter motor was changed and it was fixed. Point to be noted, The motor of a brand new bike had to be changed in just one day. Ok fine, Let me take that as a technical exception and not be judgmental about that. After all, it's a machine and perhaps bad luck. But no, It doesn't end there. Over the next one month, The bike again stopped several times in the middle of the road due to two reasons: 1. Overheating 2. Taking the clutch and releasing the accelerator. Now, Every now or then I would see the engine temperature reaching over 100c even when riding at 40-50km/hr. When I called service people they said 100c is very normal because 105c is the limit. Just 5c below the limit every now and then doesn't seem normal to me. One fine day the bike stopped in the middle of the road and refused to start because the temperature reached over 105. Though it eventually did start after 20 minutes, But hey.What the hell? it's not a 200hp bike that heat management is so difficult. Apart from this, The bike has stopped several times when I applied the full clutch and released the accelerator. In fact, riding this bike was like a luck game. I hope it doesn't stop! another thing is that this bike has a very very bad low rpm power delivery. It is useless to drive the bike below 4000rpm. At low revs, One wrong gear or a slight quick release of clutch and the engine begins to knock out. This makes low speed driving a very bad experience. Not just me but several people who have tried my bike have ended with a sudden engine turn off because of bad low rev power delivery. The bike though becomes fun after 4k rpm but it's pain below that. Also, the power delivery is highly non-linear. It comes in bursts after 4k and again somewhere after 6k. After the first service of the bike after 1000km, the heating issue was solved and switching off when taking clutch also reduced significantly. One more thing I think could be better is the speed. With my brother sitting at the back, Which is mostly the case, The bike struggles reaching 120km/hr.I don't mean it can't reach more than 120, But the time it would take to cross this speed will require an impractical stretch of free road. So for all practical purposes, We can find it reaching 80 to 90 easily on the Delhi ring road with moderate traffic. Just wish it could be 120 or so with ease instead of 90. To sum up1. Stunning looks and somehow the brand value (really?) adds to it.2.Very comfortable, Glides through rough roads.3.Very good breaking performance.4.Very bad low rpm power delivery5.Speed slightly lower than expectations. Why 4 stars even after all this? well, I think the overall ownership makes me feel a 4-star satisfaction. It's not only the engine you see when we talk of how you feel about owning a particular bike. A million-dollar question would be, If you removed the brand value would I still rate this 4 stars? honest answer, No. I would rate it 3.5 stars. So the extra 0.5 stars just for the ego boost of owning a BMW? perhaps yes. Would I recommend this bike? yes, I will, There's perhaps no competition to it in terms of comfort and appearance. Given the option of a 100% refund, Will I buy a different bike? well no. Out of the box, But I decided on this bike over the ninja 650 which I was initially planning.No it was not the price, It was the feel. Even today I will not swap this with a 650. Just for information a few quick facts: it cost me 3, 50, 000 on road in Delhi with the blue and red colour option which was around 7k extra. I ride in the city and the mileage is 25km/once I broke the clutch lever and it cost over 3k to have it replaced. The first service cost over 7k.

    Long rides 

    The bmw gs 310 is an excellent bike! very confortable for long rides and it can take you to places difficult to reach, Its torque will surprise you! very stylish so it steals sights of people when they see it! you can ride it for over 280 km and depending on your driving style, The full tank may last over 300 km.Very economic and a very suitable bike for adventures and for the city.We know bmw is not a cheap brand of motorcycle so it´s good to analize first if you will give the maintenance it needs.However, The 2020 model of the 310 gs corrected few issues with previous models and for you to go to the mechanic with this bike, It will take a while.The abs is simple great! the feature to disconnect it whenever you want will give you plenty of fun! the only con i see on this bike besides the maintenance cost is that, You would be likely to upgrade it to a 650 gs or to a f750 gs in a very short period of time! in general, This bike gives a lot of fun and security when you ride it.If you are thinking on getting one go and buy it! it will give you a good gs riding experience!.

    I have been an owner of the 

    I have been an owner of the gs310 from 2019.I am very happy with the performance of the the.The 313cc engine doesn’t fail to surprise us.The g310gs can be a synonym to the word “refined”.The engine is well refined and smooth.The seating position and the seat itself is a bliss.The gel padded seat gives us a support throughout the ride amd can cruise casually for kilometers and kilometers.The headlight is a bit shaky.The rear view mirrors give a fantastic view and covers almost everything.The build of the vehicle is top notch and beautiful.It demands the road presence.The machine is a beast while off-roading.Climbs any rocky hill.The one thing that is turn off is the maintenance cost.It averages around 8-10k per normal service and 20k for major service.I personally think that it’s too much for a bike.I get an avg mileage of 32km/l, Which i don’t think is so bad.It is pretty generous for a 310 cc bike.There are lots aftermarket accessories in the market these day.If you are really looking for a off roading cruiser then this is the best available option for you.

    The ktm 390 adventure is an advanced and modernised sibling of ktm 390 duke. I have the red colour of this bike and exterior wise it looks quite good. It has good mileage, enough ground clearance and satisfactory and easy controls. The engine is powerful and the seat is comfortable and wide. My friend also has this model and it is quite reliable for daily commute.

    It offers everything 

    390 Adventure is for everything like it is compact for beginner friendly, capable for open roads, great for proper long rides adventures and its engine is excellent for touring but the seat height is high that is not suitable for all buyers. On road performance of this bike is just incredible and the price is very well for what it offers but is not that good for off roader. The highway performance is excellent but the seat is not very comfortable for long rides.

    drive to the zenith 

    It is a versatile bike that bridges the gap between street bikes and adventure bikes. It offers good performance on the road, with the capability to tackle light off-road adventures. While exact mileage figures might vary depending on riding style i ride , but the estimated mileage 30kmpl which is very low .
