Q. I am very interested in buying a new motorcycle I am looking at the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and Bullet 500 which would be the best touring bike from your experiences?
  • Royal Enfield Bullet 500. It's coz it has more load carrying capacity and less frequent gear changes as compared to 350 on account of larger cc with higher torque & bhp
  • Bullet 500 is best for touring.
  • 500 is best for long rides
Q. I am interested to drive a car than a bike, but seeing some constraints of a car in urban and non-urban commuting, I would like to buy a bike under 2 lakhs of budget. My height is 164 cm and 67 Kg weight, I prefer a bike of low to medium weight, reasonable mileage, and low maintenance costs with no issues. Which one would you suggest to go for?
  • The Hero Group has some of the most quality products and some of the best servicing outlets too! I suggest you visit an authorized dealer closest to your residence and make a beginning with an automatic scooter like the Duet or Maestro.
  • I don't like scooters..i didnt mention that
  • Bajaj avenger , TVS Apache
Q. Should I go for a Jawa Motorcycles Jawa or Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350? Please suggest.
  • Jawa is just a hype nothing more . 24 years ago i owned old jawa & driven it for thousands of KM . It will thrill me every time i touch the handle bar & pump it to alive the engine. The exhaust thump & interval between the next thump is wonderful. Flick & Kick is a experience . I used to get mileage around 30 kmpl to 35 kmpl. Now to coming new jawa . I have driven new jawa with imaginations for more than 250 km i got mileage of 18 kmpl. Engine is powerful till 110 km/hr then it straining to climb speed with vibrations & becomes too noisy .The exhaust sound is like hero splendor bike. There are lots of welding visually seen around new jawa . They recreated visibly old jawa . Visually good bike. I didn"t get moved or ringed & impressed while riding.I never need a bike for visual pleasure.I prefer RE 350 segment & RE 350 thunderbird is good choice.
  • Both or good
