Q. Which is best bike, NS 200, Dominar 400 and Himalayan?
  • So the category is real different. Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 is a good machine in the lower segment. It is affordable, easy to maintain and value for money. It has a high revving engine so it tends to get a little buzzy at high rpm. The low end torque is missing. Because of the smaller engine, the bike has a tough time going against the wind or doing long rides. The Dominar 400 is a good machine. Comfortable seating, mid sized engine, good power output, handles long rides like its nothing at all. Impressive performance. Suspension is on the stiffer size though. Not that big a deal. The switches and other parts are good. would rate a 3/5 on the fit and finish. Best budget buy.The Himalayan is a mile muncher. the bike has its own style. Onroad manners are nice and off road the Himalayan is a beast. The best part is, that it is raw. The posture is perfect to saddle and the bike is rugged. Can handle getting down and dirty. More than you can expect. It depends on what you are expecting the bike to do.
  • All 3 bikes represent completely different segments .NS 200 is a naked street fighter which can be easily used is daily commute and also some free styling with your bike due to it's light weight .Dominar 400 is a high powerd speed cruiser. This bike best for highway Crusing guys who wants to travel the road with some good speed and power.And on the other side , Himalayan is completely different bike . This is purposely build for off Roading . So it doesn't matters what kind of road you want to travel , you can go to nastiest roads with Himalayan .
  • NS 200 is like a city bike. Dominar 400 is a touring bike. Himalayan is the cheapest adventure touring bike. If you plan to ride in city only then go for NS 200. If you plan to go for occasional highway rides(no off road) then Dominar. If you want to enjoy the true awesomeness of Himalayan you should ride it off road.

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.

Q. Sir which is better himalyan or thunderbird 500x?
  • Always depends on what your requirement is, in addition, always decide post a good test ride.For me, Himalayan is the better pick, simply because it is vibe free, has a great suspension setup and if you're keen on it, can go off road with ease (this depends on your skills too of course). The TB 500X's biggest advantage I can see is the alloy wheels and the tubeless tyres setup. This is the biggest drawback of the Himalayan according to me, but carrying an add-on electric air pump eases the pain. Of course, off roading and bad roads can damage alloys hence the spoke wheel setup on Himalayan. The TB 500X will vibrate at anything above 90kmph, while the Himalayan can go to 120 without any vibes.All that said, it is purely your choice. Both are good bikes.
  • Hi, I owned Himalayan from more than a year and I use it for my long ride as well as daily commute. I ride it almost 70 km daily from my house to office and I feel great experience about my bike. I also rode my friend's Thunderbird, but I take my decision in one test ride of Himalayan. It just looks big and hard to ride but believe me it's very much comfortable and easy to handle on highway or in heavy city traffic. It's a beast on off-road track. I never feel exhausted after a full day long ride. There are mainor issues in this bike but I m not sure that these are actually issues or just normal things like Knocking sound in handle bar after every long ride, chain loosen up very frequently and other small things which I have to go to workshop after long rides, only headlamp light is not sufficient. So I suggest you make your decision wisely.
  • Hi, I dont think anyone will be able to answer this becaus both the bikes are from different genre or class. - Hinalayan being an off roader or, as they say "purpose built" bike has everything different than Thunderbird being a highway or a cruiser bike. I enjoy riding Thunderbird 500 on a highway but, I enjoy exploring smaller towns and new roads on a Hinalayan. So, you ask yourself if you are a highway person or an explorer who might get different roads after every new turn. - Hinalayan, having bit less mileage than thunderbird, may give you more powerful pleasure by pushing the bike gear after gear. But, thunderbird will give you more of a relaxed and a happy ride whole day. I hope you find your answer in my philosophies for both.
