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. Why should one consider a G 310 GS against a much cheaper and more powerful KTM 390 Duke which is already proven?
  • I own a 310 GS and I would not give KTM 390 even a thought! 1. The comfort of riding the 310GS is incomparable. 2. It looks far more premium than the 390. Even if you hide the logo and put both bikes side by side you will notice the difference. 3. It gives me a rather 'bold and confidant' personality rather than the 'always ready to race' stigma attached to the KTM. 4. Oh I'm an engineer and understand speed, power, torque, time, space and gravity very well, but please don't start off with numbers again...
  • Good question but only if seen thru the lens of price and power. The baby GS offer much more in terms of its offroading ability. Were the KTM 390 available in an ADV avatar, the baby GS would have stood no chance.
  • 310 is a adventure bike if your traveling long distace go for 310 or else go for ktn simple

Q. I am looking for the best bike for my needs. I want one i can drive in the city. My wife rides with my on my bike and wants something to handle to bad roads and speed breakers better. Also we want to ride on long road trips and bring luggage. Don't know which is best BMW G310GS, Himalayan, or the 390 Adventurer. I like the low seat on the Himalayan that my wife could drive it. However it seems too heavy and not enough power. The BMW looks great but seems the suspension is too soft and brakes are week and the electronic package is pretty lame. I don't want anything more than 200kg bike.
  • Himalayan will be better while considering all aspects. Since bmw service costs are always above 10K. adv390 is more powerful and it requires more skills to handle it. But in case of Himalayan it is more easier and budgetary.
  • If pillion comfort is the requirement, himalyan should be out consideration... BMW g310GS and 390 Adventure have theri respective pros and cons..Do teat ride bothe and decide for yourself
  • Be sure and go for bmw 310gs it got steel braided brake lines it wouldn't disappoint you great break best in the segment so far rear one can't compare to anyone

G 310 GS User Reviews
  • This is a lot of bike for the money! the electronics package is fantastic, The motor far exceeds expectations, And it's very comfortable.I'm getting 78 mpg at moderate speed and just a little under at sport pace.My only letdown has been the poor performance of the quick shifter, Which i hope can be fixed with software next spring.
