Q. Which is better RE Himalayan or Hero Xpulse 200 for long ride?
  • Both r different cc bro xpulse is 200cc and RE Himalayan is 400cc so torque on re is more compair to xpulse but coming to weight hero had did the best.... In my point of view I prefer xpulse than Himalayan, xpulse is the pocket friendly adventure touring bike...... Which we can keep in our garage
  • For long rides Himalayan is better, but if you change the seat of xpulse it is the best option you can get as xpulse is better than himalayan in all other aspects exept highway cruize speeds. Himalayan can cruize at 100kmph, but xpulse can cruize comfortably at 80-85only
  • Himalayan is better than Xpulse for long ride, but what matters is Money. If you have money go for Himalayan, if not take xpulse. Xpulse also does very good for long rides

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. 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.
