Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which Bike is best Hasquvarna or Royel Enfiled Himalayan 350, Which is Best and strongest Bike for Longer lasting Bike pl.suggest...?
  • Both bikes are of different segments and have different characteristics. Keeping the bike for long will totally depend on how it is maintenance and ridden. The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 looks good, is quick, and rides and handles well. However, the KTM 250 Duke offers the same traits with the added benefits of a spacious rider and pillion seat and a larger fuel tank. If you are less inclined towards practicality but lean more towards design, the Vitpilen 250 looks more eye-catching and is more engaging to ride. So effectively, the Svartpilen 250 is in no man’s land. We feel that KTM/Husqvarna should have capitalised on the Svartpilen’s scrambler appeal. They could raid the KTM parts bin and use the 390 Adventure’s longer travel suspension, larger 19-inch front tyre, serrated footpegs and turn the Svartpilen 250 into a proper scrambler. With these updates, even a price hike of Rs 20,000 would put it at par with the KTM 250 Duke’s pricing, but then you would have a more capable Svartpilen 250 pointing in the right direction -- off-road. As things stand, you have better alternatives to the Svartpilen 250 from its own family and another capable 250cc motorcycles.Owning and riding multiple motorcycles is a luxury that few can afford and even fewer can truly enjoy. 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 i.e. 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. You may compare both the bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. Which bike has better mileage between Svartpilen and Himalayan?
  • The Husqvarna Svartpilen 250 uses the same 248.8cc single-cylinder engine from the 250 Duke that claims to deliver 32.44 Kmpl, while the 411cc single-cylinder unit of the Royal Enfield Himalayan delivers a overall claimed mileage of 37.8kmpl on highways, while in the city runs it drops marginally to 36.26kmpl.
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
