Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I want to buy a new bike to commute for job daily 85kms to and from in Kerala. The roads are not highways. They have ups, downs and curves, with low traffic. I think speeds up to 60 kmph are good. I am thinking about Honda CB 350 H'ness, RE Meteor and Honda CB200X. Comfort, quality, economics are my priorities. I am thinking about H'ness. Kindly give your suggestions.
  • Honda H’ness CB350 and Royal Enfield Meteor 350 are good picks. Don’t be fooled by the 191kg kerb weight of Meteor on the spec sheet -- a 765mm seat height and loads of steering lock mean that paddling and filtering through traffic is an absolute breeze. Further aiding comfort is the reasonably good suspension setup that manages to handle speed breakers and potholes quite well, but a lack of travel and a stiff setup at the rear means that sharper and shorter imperfections like expansion joints or unlevelled concrete block interfaces will batter your derrière. This thudding over sharp bumps stops us a few steps short of calling the setup plush, but it’s certainly closer to the plush end of the scale than the back-breaker end. On the other hand, you have a fairly neutral riding posture on the Honda H’ness CB350. Unlike the Classic 350, you don’t sit ‘on the bike’; you feel more like a part of it. Also, the handlebar is curved back towards the rider, which results in an upright and comfy riding posture. The 800mm seat height means shorter riders won’t complain, and the bike isn’t very wide either. Seat cushioning is firm, and although I couldn’t clock long hours on the saddle, it did feel good over the hour-long commute in Mumbai traffic. The flat seat is also pillion-friendly and decently spacious. The only grouse we have is that you feel the weight (181kg) of the bike while parking and have to muscle the CB350 in and out of the parking space. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride 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?.-2020 Royal Enfield Meteor 350: Road Test Review.
  • Thank you very much for detailed answer.
Q. Which have better riding comfort between honda highness and Enfield meteor?
  • If you are looking for a comfortable, easy-to-handle bike that marries old-school charm and modern sensibilities well, you may go for Honda Hness CB350. The neutral riding position and excellent seat keep your body absolutely content. The H’ness does a fantastic job of masking its 181kg kerb weight, offering easy and neutral handling with minimal effort. On the other hand, the Meteor 350 offers wide bars and a feet-forward seating position that will accommodate even six-footers easily. The scooped-out shape for the seat is surprisingly botherless, and the firm cushioning makes it well suited for long stints. Once you adapt to the quickness and lightness of the steering and the stretched-out seating position, you will find yourself slicing through traffic without breaking a sweat. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. Which is better Honda Hness 350 or RE Meteor 350? I want my bike for longer ride like 700kms and I have back pain issue too.
  • I have done couple of long rides on hness. Easy to do 400kms a day with split seats. Yet to take my meteor out on a long ride (will post once I get a chance to). But I must say short distance drive (50 kms) is more fun on meteor. Meteor has better gearing and gear changes are very smooth.
  • I have both , but Hness is more powerful bike get top end easily 130+ whereas Meteor slower than Hness.
  • Both are comfortable for long ride, meteor slight edge over Hness CB 350, over all hness is good.

All Lights Indicators and so on is LED, which enables your battery back life go long, last but least, this bike is for any ones choice and yes every person has many desires but this bike keeps / provides the best fit for once choice in all aspects right from color, performance, style, Digital, balancing, Mileage, Speed, ABS, TCS, Slipper Clutch and so on. trust me no one will ever regret on the purchase and investment done here. this is my honest views on this bike.

    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.

    Great motorcycle by royal enfield.I am an owner of this bike who has ridden it for around 1000km and i have to say great work and effort has been done by the royal enfield with the engine refinement, Vibrations, Breaking, Comfort.The tripper on my bike doesn't work.It gets connected just at the very beginning and gives me the direction at that time but after that the directions don't change and i have to stop my bike just to see a different direction on it.This thing pisses me off.But the bike is superb overall.

    Perfect value for money.No regret of buying such a wonderful machine.Show stopper in the road while riding this black beauty.Down sides :1.Quality of rear view mirror ( better to have rectangle mirror to cover much scene from behind.I have fixed mirror from bajaj avenger which gives more confident and coverage while on road.)2.No use of navigator, It drains your mobile batter power fast ( its just an ornamental digital clock )3.Poor ergonomics in positioning of horn and the day flash switch.

    Good bike with style and appeal.One can easily cruise a long distance.M owing one.I feel light while riding this monster.The best part is its tipper navigation.No need to put mobile and worry for rains and all.The only con which i see is its heating issue.But the mighty 350 cc engine will emit heat.

  • 5.0

    I am a proud owner of this bike.As on today, I am completely satisfied with the performance of this bike.The first service cost is just rs.663/-, Which is very low.It gives me a mileage of 37kmpl ( before 1st service), Which just adds me a smile in my face.
