    Q. Which one to buy Triumph Street Triple RS or MT-09?
    • When it comes to the road monsters, both the bikes are frugal on the road with a neck to neck competition. The Yamaha MT-09 and Triumph Street Triple RS are two gladiators of the naked sports arena with a distinctive aggressive stance and blastic engines. MT-09 is powered by a 3-Cylinder, 4-Stroke, 4-Valves, DOHC 847cc engine that unleash a maximum power of 115PS and a mind-blowing maximum torque of 87.5Nm. On the other hand, the Triumph Street Triple RS has been powered by an In-line 3-Cylinder, 12-Valve, DOHC 765cc engine which churns 123PS of monstrous max power and 77 Nm of maximum torque. As far as the Acceleration is considered the MT-09 does 0-100Kmph in 3.79seconds whereas the Triumph Street Triple RS does it in 3.59 seconds. We would suggest taking a test ride of both the bikes so that you might get a better idea regarding the ride comfort, power and performance of the bikes.Click here for the Dealership: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
    • MT 09
    • Triumph all the way
    Q. Does it have a waterproof TFT display and which should I go for Kawasaki Z900, Triumph Street Triple or Ducati XDiavel but it should look like sporty bike like Triumph Street triple?
    • If you need more power and torque then this Italian beast, (Ducati XDiavel) is meant for you that is equipped with a heart of Testastretta 11° L-Twin, 4 Desmodromically Actuated Valves Per Cylinder (1198.4cc), Fully Adjustable Sachs Rear Shock With Progressive Linkage, Remote Spring Preload Adjustment, Single-Sided Aluminium Swingarm, and the feets are covered with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II rubber whereas if you are on a budget for a superbike and has a very good mileage among the three then Kawasaki Z900 would be the best bike for you. But for the best of both the world like the combination of features and power in a good price then Triumph Street Triple, the British manufacturer can full fill your need to ride.But before the final decisions suggest you take a test ride of all the vehicles to understand the power and comfort better.

    • If you want a sportive bike choose between z900 and street triple... because Diavel looks bit like a cruise bikeAnd again if you come to choose between z900 and triumph then I suggest you choose between brands not bikes because both the bikes are best with no issues but when it comes to maintainence triumph donot usually have spare parts available at the service center.......... As my personal experience you have to wait for over 2-3 months for any kind of part as the spares come from U.K It took about 4 months for me to just get the triumph logos where as kawasaki has got better service than triumph
    • These bikes are different segment z900cc is best but maintenance is high and triumph also but ducati too cost bike, maintenance it's cruise segment. My opinion go ahead z900 bcoz its Japanese bikes.
    Q. Which is a better bike Hardly Davidson Forty Eight or Hayabusa?
    • The two power monsters belong to a very different clan as the Harley Davidson Forty-Eight is a cruise whereas the Hayabusa is a supersport bike. The Forty-Eight has been jacked with 1202 cc 2 cylinders Air-Cooled, Evolution engine which produces 60.83 PS of maximum power and 97 Nm of peak torque. The Suzuki Hayabusa, on the other hand, gets a giant 4-Cylinder, 4-Stroke, DOHC engine which produces monstrous 197 bhp of huge power and 155 Nm of top torque. The Hayabusa is a rocket on a rocket on road as those figures could even launch you in some different time zone. The Harley is more of a road-friendly tourer which is designed to enjoy the road. A perfect bike differs from person to person as some like sports while the others go for the cruisers so it depends on your choice and riding style. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of both the bikes so that you may check the compatibility of the bikes' riding posture, features, performance and comfort.Click here for the dealerships https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
