Q. Which is better G310R OR RC - G 310 R - G 310 R - G 310 R?
  • If you want to get a BMW badge, you can go for BMW G 310 R. The G 310 R here is the fun bike, but then it’s got some strong rivals in the form of the KTM 390 Duke, which offers more performance and features, and even maybe the Apache RR310, which offers the same kinda performance and more features as well. You’re going to have to really crave for a small BMW roadster to go for the G 310 R.At a budget, if you are looking for a light, powerful, sharp-handling sportsbike, then the RC 390 is the right tool to opt for, especially considering its value-for-money quotient. The updates have made the new RC 390 friendlier with the addition of ride-by-wire technology and improved braking. However, the riding posture is very committed and the bike is more suited for track use rather than a tool for the daily commute. On the other hand,
  • BMW G310
Q. Which is better KTM RC 390 or KTM 390 Duke
  • There is no doubt in this tht KTM is highly reputed company but I want to share my experience, I have ktm rc390 and have done hardly 29000 km on it. You can check me service records, all services are before time.. but my bike has started leaving black smoke. It has just done 29000km and leaving black smoke. It's engine oil level decrease drastically.I have give my bike in ktm service station, total cost is above 50000 Rs. That too it l take month to get repaired. Once u have purchased this bike, there is no good support from KTM. Every one is just looting money from you. You can just imagine the quality of engine which starts burning engine oil just after 29000 km.
  • My bike is ktm rc 390 ...Why i choosed this model because first of all i think rc is looking more musculr than duke ...if we look at its specifications both rc and duke having the same except its handling and ride postureBefore rc i had r15/pulsar 220 both are more or less same on its riding posture and handlingIf we look at duke its a staright sitting naked bike And i test drived once at that time i felt its little hard to ride in traffic means to do very tricky to make a fast manoeuvre rest in highways it gives a good rodong posture with no back pain or shoulder painThen also why i choose rc my mainly because of its handling and look
  • Both are powerful performance bikes...they are made to do drift or race..drift bi Duke 390 with supetmoto mode in which you can unlock rear abs for drifting lowers..can be used for short commute not touring..Rc 390 is a proper race track beast for leaning in the track..ultimate midrange..handling...which one is better? buy according to your needs...but Duke does all what rc does and more with supetmoto mode...

Q. Which is better kawasaki ninja300 or BMW G310R - G 310 R - G 310 R?
  • The BMW’s unique reverse-inclined engine helps in better mass centralisation, improved inflow and outflow of air which in turn keeps the engine cool at all times. The engine though is quite vibey, which can be felt through the handlebar, footpegs and body panels. Expect the BMW G 310 R to be quite similar to the RR 310 in terms of engine character; however, the German counterpart would be a lot more refined. The G 310 R is said to be most happy in the mid-range and kicks in slightly sooner compared to the RR 310. The refinement on the Japanese twin-cylinder is second to none. Moreover, it is assisted with a slipper clutch which makes for easy downshifts and prevents wheel hopping, something that the BMW misses out on. The power is concentrated towards the top of the rev band, with serious performance kicking in post 9,000 rpm. Heat dissipation is another big plus as it's directed to the bottom of the bike and away from the rider, keeping the engine and the rider cool. All things considered, the Kawasaki Ninja priced at Rs 2.98 lakh offers a tad more in terms of value for money. However, if you're looking for high levels of fit and finish and the BMW badge, the G 310 R priced at Rs 2.99 lakh (both ex-showroom) makes for a good proposition. Both the manufacturers offer 3 years of warranty and unlimited kilometres.

  • Both are almost same as they both come under same 300cc segment... Kawasaki is a bit ahead in terms of performance... seating posture is upright in Bmw and pillion comfort is also good where as in Kawasaki seating posture is forward may not be suitable for long rides and pillion comfort is not good...if you are a speed lover then go for Kawasaki...engine is more refined in Kawasaki than bmw...
  • Kawasaki, being a Japanese machine, is definitely the best buy against BMW 310R. Also, the part and maintenance would be easy for Kawasaki.
