Q. Which is the better bike between Yamaha R3 and ninja 300?
  • The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres. On the other hand, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. But with the new pricing, the future looks a lot more promising for the Ninja 300. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Nonetheless, a twin-cylinder at this price is pretty tempting. Here both the bikes are good enough but we would suggest you to go for Yamaha as it has a better service network as compare to Kawasaki. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
  • It depends on what type of sitting posture you like , comfortable or riding stance, i noticed that if you r sitting in r3 which i like a lot. doesnt give you a big bike feel and has more relaxed position (the moment you hop on you will feel that something is wrong with its gear positioning - but its built like that to not give much pain for long rides) and in ninja iyts more of a city sport bike..riding stance is good have a bigger fuel tank which really looks good and you can grab the tank properly with your legs.exhaust note is more of a 650 cc category more bassy.Thanks
  • Both having all the qualities of an entry level sports bike with top end performance....both lack usd forks ..I will suggest ninja performance for the slipperclutch ..and service networks...

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. Which one is best duke 390 or G 310 R - G 310 R - G 310 R?
  • Both are indeed good options to go for. The KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. It is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers. The Duke has a shorter wheelbase of 1357mm, handy while manoeuvring through tight spaces. The KTM still remains the better option if you have a power hungry soul & gets a seat height of 830mm. The BMW G 310 R on the other hand has a low seat height of 785mm, which will be a boon for shorter riders. In terms of looks, the G310R is exactly what you would expect a BMW designed bike to look like. Ultimately it boils down to your needs and wants.

  • All the BMW owners are complaining about breakdowns and mechanical failures, Hope BMW takes care of this. The KTM on the other hand is lesser known for such issues.Plus the service network for KTM is very accessible compared to BMW.I not even going to discuss the performance and tech on both the bikes, coz it's not even a comparison.
