Q. I am confused between Ninja 650 2020 KRT edition VS CBR 650R? Which one is better?
  • CBR650R makes more power and at higher RPM and makes slightly lesser torque. Ninja being a twin cylinder engine makes more torque at lower rpm although it makes lesser power. Ninja 650 is good for long distance cruising. CBR with the 4 cylinder engine gives a sporty riding experience and makes more top speed than Ninja 650.

  • Honda reliability where kawasaki stands for refinement. Go for zx6r

Q. I am planning to buy my first bike. My shortlisted choices are very small Vulcan S650 and Versys 650. Considering Indian road conditions, which bike would you recommend me? My budget is around 6.5 lakhs INR. Any other options are also welcome.
  • Yes..
  • Yes.. You can either install an Aftermarket exhaust or get ‘fork raisers’ installed.. Since I live in Bengaluru where cops seem to be very strict about aftermarket exhausts ( and also due to these exhausts being very expensive ), I got ‘fork raisers’ installed which raise the frame by a couple of inches thereby increasing the ground clearance by about an inch..Note that these fork raisers are not some standard accessories you can buy.. These were fabricated and installed at a workshop owned by a member of one of the riding clubs, so you need to check if such fabrication and installation can be done by someone in your city..
  • Hi Sathish, I am also planning to buy Vulcan s but due to GC problem I am not getting sure about this. Can we increase Ground Clearance of vulcan s?
