Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which bike is more comfortable, Hness CB350 or Classic 350?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. The Honda CB350 is a great option for someone looking for a retro-styled motorcycle with sprightly performance and the legendary reliability of Honda is an additional bonus. So if you’re looking for the above, the CB350 makes better sense. One thing that goes against the Japanese bike is Honda’s strategy of selling it from the Big Wing dealerships only which restricts access to many buyers in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. The Honda CB350 is an impressive bike, but it lacks a bit of soul and character, something that can't be quantified - and something which the Classic 350 has in abundance. With the new Classic 350, Royal Enfield has managed to iron out the major niggles of its predecessor - crudeness and reliability (as we have seen with the Meteor 350). What really makes the 2021 Classic so much likeable is the fact that it has the DNA of the old Classic 350 but in a more modern and usable manner. So if you are planning to buy a retro roadster, the 2021 RE Classic 350 will be our pick. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -Honda H’ness CB350 Road Test Review: Should RE Be Worried?..-2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 vs Honda CB350 RS: Comparison Review..-2021 RE Classic 350 Road Test Review.

  • Everything i say here is my own personal experience.It can vary from person to person.Driving experience and comfort is the best compared to its competitors.The power is adequate but not in a way that scares beginners.Low end torque is not good compared to the competitors.But in my opinion this motorcycle is not meant for low end.This is a good street bike not a cruiser.But not at all bad for touring purposes.Don't buy this as an alternative for re or jawa.Test ride this bike and see if it is suited for your purposes and buy afterwards.So don't get the wrong impression that this is a better re/jawa.This motorcycle gives its best performance at its mid range and it is great💥very nimble to handle in traffic.Felt very less vibrations.I felt the need of bigger mudguards in front as well as at the rear.Brakes are up to the mark.Lights are averagetorque control/traction control came in handy when i took the bike to offroad conditionsfor me this machine is perfect in every waysbest thing about this bike is it gives a smile on my face everytime i ride it.Not once i regret buying this wonderful machine.

  • Bought this bike from jaipur on 25 dec 2020.I had benelli 600i tnt.While benelli was a tiger, Though little uncomfortable for long rides with pillion, This one is an excellent touring bike.Very comfortable, Good pickup, Smooth as butter and extremely comfortable for pillion.Excellent touring bike.Am yet to get servicing done, But have been promised a great experience by the dealer.Mileage etc not checked yet.Barely ridden 200km as am yet to go for long drives.Braking is excellent.Max speed tried is 110 kmph.But i guess it should reach 120.A very basic, Very comfortable mid speed touring bike.But that is what one can get at this price.

  • Just saw this bike on the internet. Photos, Walkaround videos..... and for the first time in my life, booked a bike. I love the minimalistic features with FI and balancer and slipper clutch for modern technologies. This looks like a easy to maintain bike. Honda's dependable badge will ensure quality, smooth engine gearbox powertrain and a neat mileageThe large engine (by Indian standards only ) will expand the two wheeler reach to 300 400 kms. Looking at the specs, we can expect it to cruise at around 70 - 100 kmph on the highways. The dual channel ABS should make it safe.......i have not yet ridden the bike.

  • Royal enfield classic 350 legendary bike- the royal enfield classic 350 is a legendary bike.The latest model of the bike is very good looking with some minor changes from the previous one.There are a lot of things which i like about it.The engine refinement has improved a lot in this new model which was much necessary.Revised ergonomics make it more comfortable for both rider and pillion.New chassis makes it easier to ride in traffic.

  • My most favourite bike- the new royal enfield classic 350 made a fine attempt at dissuading me from riding anything else, And it succeeded to a fair extent, Too.Classic 300 is the important bike of the company.Previously these bikes had vibrations because of old engine.Now royal enfield has done great job by swapping a new non vibrating engine.Which attracts people to purchase the bike.It looks very aggressive and stylish.

    Farhaan few weeks ago
  • Royal enfield classic 350 with some cons- the royal enfield classic 350 is overall a good bike with some cons which can be observed after riding it for some time.As compared with the prices it doesn’t have the top-end performance of the meteor 350.New footpegs foul with your legs in traffic and while parking which is annoying and the thump of the old engine is missing.
