Q. Himalayan or Classic 350, which has the best pillion comfortable seat?
  • Both bikes have really good rider and pilloin comfort . HIMALAYAN's seat is a bit higher then classic 350 seat . Pillion can feel a little trouble while taking his position but during Ride the soft seat material helps a lot for both rider and pilloin . Classic 350 seat is quite wider than Himalayan also a little more comfortable . So in my opinion , both bikes have rea good comfort level but if I have to choose between classic and Himalayan than I'll go with classic 350 . Just a little bit of difference, not too much .
  • No doubt the Himalayan. The pillion sits higher and the pegs are not rear set. The gel seat helps too.
  • Himalayan is more than comfort between the 350

Q. I would like to take some experts advice on selecting a bike. I have a huge confusion in selecting a bike for my own. My choices are Dominor 400 and Himalayan 400. I will mostly ride it for out of city touring in the hills near Siliguri, and later this year I am also planning to do some long rides of North East and Ladakh, I will ride it very rarely in the city maybe twice or thrice a week. I want the comfort feel and the uniqueness to stay on my side. So which bike do you suggest me? Personally I like Royal Enfield Himalayan.
  • Both the bikes have their own uniqueness. they are well built for their own purposes. all I could say is when u r on a trip no matter how good the bike is you will get stuck with one or the other problem. at that peak point u would easily find a RE service more easily compared to a bajaj. apart from the service criteria. spokes carry more load at rough terrain compared to an alloy rim
  • Go with Himalayan, Best bike available in market for both on road off road adventure .
  • I Think the Himalayan is the best
Q. I am little confused over a section of either a Himalayan Sleet or Interceptor 650 for on/off road and of course for touring purpose? kindly suggest which one is better and why?
  • It's a tie actually both bikes are really good . When it comes to City or highway rides the interceptor 650 feels better but if are driving through some nasty roads or doing some off Roading then Himalayan is the best.I've chosen Himalayan SLEET over interceptor 650 and dominar 400 .Himalayan have the bestest riding comfort above all of them .
  • They are totally different bikes. for daily use u can compare the two bikes. but when it comes to touring your bum is going to hurt on the int 650. go for the himalayan. you wont get the performance of a int 650 but the himalayan wont let you down
  • Himalayan
