Q. Which one is better R15 v3 or KTM RC 200?
  • Both are best in there own ways.For RC 200:1)Engine is much better than R15 V3 2) Initial power is more3)Fuel Efficiency:35-45 km/L4) Maintenance cost is more comparing to V35)Top speed:138Km/H6)No vibration at all7) Excellent brightness for the both Dim & Highbeam For R15 V3:1) Fuel Efficiency:45-502) Maintenance cost is less3) Initial power is less comparing to Rc2004)Top speed: 160Km/H 5)Low brightness for the headlights
  • RC 200 much better option than R15 V3 but only if you budget permits it provides an adjustable suspension with the very other body that can do well on track as well as on normal roads but if you are running short on budget then go for an 583 has optimum performance with in its budget.
  • I have been a KTM rider past 3 years with my RC 200, experience has been good , talking about RC and R15 v3 first of all Power comes in Picture RC is 25bhp where as R15 is 19 Bhp, both bike have super sporty riding position,so comfort wise both bikes are not great ,the Yamaha R15 v3 handle bar is more lower then that of RC , if you want to upgrade to higher cc bike later then would suggest ktm rc as you will get use to Power later on which is important for when u go for higher cc bike

Q. I have booked a Jawa 42 but now I am confused weather to buy RE 350 or Jawa 42, I want the best to be chosen and worth the money I am going to spend. - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • Brother i would give you honest suggestion. Don't go with the looks of jawa, its a new bike and everyone gets attracted towards new bike always, but first thing is There is no Kick start .2.Fuel Gauge does not work properly in almost all jawa bikes. 3.No Alloy wheels.option. 4. No Tubless Tires. 5.Low Quality Matt Paint. 6. Dealers Not well qualified nor mechanics. Road side mechanic cannot repair it. TAKE MY ADVICE GO FOR RE350 AND GET IT SIMPLE MODIFICATION. IT HAS GOT THAT THUMP comfort TO JAWA.
  • Choice is your . But if you required suggestion then I would suggest you to go for JAWA forty two . As the company is delaying in delivering never mind it will surely make it perfect after some months . As I am not going in the specification areas because it is readly available in the internet so you can just compare the both .
  • Dear, if you are looking for worthy bike, then you have to understand that both have significant image. If you are looking for just a classic look and cant wait for it, go for 350 as waiting for JAWA will be more. But both are excellent, in some JAWA has superiority.

    After launching there bikes after so long, jawa have still maintained there old school charm. Highely satisfied with the performance , pickup , handling , looks , design , exhust node , tyre size , capability of bike. It's so attention grabing thing, when ever I bring it on roads people starts following it to watch, many many lod people ask about bike, they say is it that old yedzi company's bike? Abhi bhi isme gear aur kick ek saath hai? Bahut badhiya hai ye to , kitne ki li? , and alot more.... I have lots of stories related to that bike which happens.....when you ride it , it feels like a nimbulled , well designed, a balanced design of colur of bike in many parts , with chrome along with matt black colour, and a very powerful , muscled , compact , powerful , machine. The amount of of power and torque delivers it engine in just 293 cc is really really amazing , more than 27 bhp of power in just 293 cc of engine is still is still so far from aal old and new rivals of this category. Highely satisfied with the bike, highely recommended, before buying any other bike must take a test ride of jawa, you will going to amazed.🤩

    many people ask me does back pain occur while driving long distance..Answer for that I doesn't feel any back pain with this...some of my friends said that they had wrist pain or shoulder pain ..that's because of they are sitting in wrong position... Don't allow your arms to get your body weight full on them,for that you need to put your arms as 'L' shape
