Q. I have back pain problem. Which one you suggest among Himalyan and CB 350 for long rides? One thing attracts me is tubeless tyres in CB 350, with which you are tension free incase of puncture.
  • As per your requirements, Royal Enfield is the clear pick. If the Himalayan is on your shopping list, it’s quite likely that it’s going to be your only motorcycle. And as an only motorcycle, it’s as close to perfect as you can get in this price range -- or even a few rungs higher, for that matter. This really is the Swiss Army Knife of motorcycles -- a capable, versatile, one-size-fits-all motorcycle. Need something to ferry you to the office and back? No problem. Want to cruise the highways on weekends? It’ll do it all day and all night long. Finally had your leave approved and want to ride to Ladakh? This is just the bike for the job. It’ll even keep you entertained on the twisty bits of tarmac you’ll find on the way. Short of hooning about on track, this is the one motorcycle that’ll do pretty much any and everything you ask of it, without protest or complaint. The Himalayan BS6 is a slightly more well-rounded and desirable motorcycle than before. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Hey hello r you suggesting him to go for royal Enfield 350.. wait wait don't listen to him. don't go for 350. it will be you r big mistake in you r life. don't go for it.. buy a highness 350. it is nice bike to ride. no vibrations, no issue, reliable engine. no tappet noise.. I have sold my classic 350 in six months only because of tappet and vibration
  • My age 49 no back pain issues 2years back I purchased re 350 and sold it to others after usage of 6months, it is bad choice . In single long ride I found - lot of vibrations throughout the body, after 60kmph the problem further increases

Q. Please suggest me a bike for daily commute of 60km and also I go for touring. I have KTM Duke 250, Himalayan, Meteor in my mind. Which one should I go for?
  • All these bikes are good enough, however, they are of different segments and have different characteristics. If we talk about KTM 250 Duke, probably the most un-KTMish KTM of them all, the 250 Duke with its relaxed motor and comfy suspension is a great choice for those who aren’t looking to set lap records but want something quick and convenient for everyday use. If we talk about Royal Enfield Meteor, the thump wrapped up in a refined, easy to ride, confident and practical package sounds just right. The lack of oil leaks, or missing parts over our 800km stint makes the package more joyous. The healthy fuel efficiency, 10,000km oil-change intervals and 5000km/6 month service inspections make it more endearing. So, this Royal Enfield fulfills the promise made by the Thunderbird many years ago. However, the Meteor doesn’t make a bigger and bolder promise of its own by way of plush ride quality, a greater sense of richness or, crucially, better cruising ability. The Himalayan BS6 is a well-rounded package which is now just that little bit better than before. It’s a nice motorcycle to tour the country on, and even if you don’t actually do so, it makes you look like the sort of person who does so with regularity. The Himalayan certainly isn’t flawless or entirely satisfactory in any singular aspect, but it makes up for these gaps by painting a picture of opportunity, inciting you to travel and explore on a whim. For that alone, it is and will continue to be relevant, even when the competition arrives in wholesomeness. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Duke 250 is totally for stunt and drag race but still it is good for daily commute of 60 km but only if the road is smooth and it really perform well at it , even in traffic. Come to the touring duke 250 is good but not better, i mentioned not better because comfort for long ride is not that good. And Himalayan has unique ability , it's totally made for long ride and off road. So it really perform well in long drive , I mean it's atmost performance will explicit in highways. And Himalayan is the best comfort bike in that price segment. And off-road is also great. But in daily commute it perform well only if there is no traffic. If you stuck in extreme traffic Himalayan really make you mad , because of it's weight and shifting gear frequently is too hard for you , i suppose . In that case Himalayan is little bit sloppy. And i didn't know much about meteor , but as far as i know it's totally made for touring purpose so maybe it also sloppy for traffic scenarios. I think Himalayan is best choice but depending on your way of riding. But if you don't take long ride and don't want the comfort of pillion sheet i prefer duke 250 . Also if you go long ride and if you like off road and pillion sheet is important, Himalayan is the best choice . I didn't know much about meteor because I personally didn't like it's look so i donno about it's use . I think dominar 400 maybe suitable for you becausei heard about it it perform well at traffic and good for long journey . But i didn't like it's look also that's why I didn't much gather information about it . Check that bike out , maybe that bike is your's suitable bike, who knows
Q. Which is better for beginners after riding Activa 3G ? Himalayan BS6 or RR 310 ?
  • Hi Zigwheels.. Can we improve the braking scene on RE Himalayan by swapping better brake pads? If yes, which brake pads would you suggest?
  • Did Royal Enfield himalayan bs6 is a beginner friendly bike which is shifting from a pulsar 180
  • Rr310 is my choice..a wildcard entry underrated...2020 even better
