Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I have back pain problem. Which one you suggest among Himalyan and CB 350 for long rides? One thing attracts me is tubeless tyres in CB 350, with which you are tension free incase of puncture.
  • As per your requirements, Royal Enfield is the clear pick. 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 -- 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. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Hey hello r you suggesting him to go for royal Enfield 350.. wait wait don't listen to him. don't go for 350. it will be you r big mistake in you r life. don't go for it.. buy a highness 350. it is nice bike to ride. no vibrations, no issue, reliable engine. no tappet noise.. I have sold my classic 350 in six months only because of tappet and vibration
  • My age 49 no back pain issues 2years back I purchased re 350 and sold it to others after usage of 6months, it is bad choice . In single long ride I found - lot of vibrations throughout the body, after 60kmph the problem further increases

Q. I own a Pulsar 220F, 2010 edition. it's been 10 years now and I badly need an upgradeI was quite settled with the thought of buying Dominar400 initially but given the onroad price in Bangalore & recent price hikes, it now marginally goes out of my budget. I am looking for 60% city and 40% touring usage kind of machine. will the dominar 250 be a good upgrade or shall I opt something like Himalayan or Meteor or eventually go for D400?my preferences though would be riding comfort(rider & pillion), good performance.
  • As per your requirements, the Dominar 250 would be a brilliant pick if you are not willing to spend further. Bajaj Dominar 250 offers brilliant value for the money spent. But money aside, as a motorcycle, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The Dominar 250’s motor felt boring on the KTM, but combined with the comfortable tourer the Dominar is, it works beautifully. It truly feels like it deserves the ‘sports tourer’ tag. The other really impressive aspect of this D250 is its ride quality. Both front and rear suspension are running a softer tune compared to the 400. The only thing you have to watch out for is braking when going over those sharp bumps, as it can cause the front end to bottom out. But apart from that, the Dominar 250’s ride quality is nothing short of wonderful. 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: - Bajaj Dominar 250 Road Test - Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review - 2020 Royal Enfield Meteor 350: Road Test Review
  • Thanks much for the feedback. Yes I agree with the bottoming out of the front end due to low ground clearance.
  • @Zigwheels.. how about RS200? do you suggest that as well as per my usage requirement?
Q. I am looking for a sub 2.5 lakh bike. Should I buy Himalayan BS6 or wait for Husqvarna to launch their bikes?
  • I bought the himalayan bs6 its a smooth bike no problem till date service cost also very less very good folks you wont feel any bumps on the road it is just smooth as that..
  • No it\'s a default bike you can search vedios on YouTube and enquiry with the person\'s bought bs6 Himalayan . I too bought the bike it\'s having issues
  • Just shut your mouth always saying himalayan as default bike it is sooo good than other travelling bikes
