Q. Which is the better bike between Yamaha R3 and ninja 300?
  • The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres. On the other hand, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. But with the new pricing, the future looks a lot more promising for the Ninja 300. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Nonetheless, a twin-cylinder at this price is pretty tempting. Here both the bikes are good enough but we would suggest you to go for Yamaha as it has a better service network as compare to Kawasaki. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers
  • It depends on what type of sitting posture you like , comfortable or riding stance, i noticed that if you r sitting in r3 which i like a lot. doesnt give you a big bike feel and has more relaxed position (the moment you hop on you will feel that something is wrong with its gear positioning - but its built like that to not give much pain for long rides) and in ninja iyts more of a city sport bike..riding stance is good have a bigger fuel tank which really looks good and you can grab the tank properly with your legs.exhaust note is more of a 650 cc category more bassy.Thanks
  • Both having all the qualities of an entry level sports bike with top end performance....both lack usd forks ..I will suggest ninja performance for the slipperclutch ..and service networks...

Q. What will be the service and spare parts cost of Ninja 300 2019 version in India? Should I go for Ninja 300 or Apache RR310?
  • The service cost is definitely higher for the Ninja 300 as compared to the RR310. However due to localization, the spare parts are affordable. Earlier the cost of the total spare parts available for the Ninja 300 used to be around 2.5 Lakh and now that has been reduced to 50k. The Ninja 300 is always a better option if you can afford for the service cost. The average service cost for the Ninja 300 in Pune is 5.5 - 6 thousand.
  • Service cost for Ninja is approx 4500 per service... Ninja is far better bike as the spare cost of RR310 is unnecessary high... just think about the cost of break lever and clutch lever for approx 1000 per lever... just an example that it's too too high for a TVS... moreover Ninja is far far superior machine...
  • Depends on your budget. Ninja looks sexier and classy.
Q. Kawasaki Ninja 400 or TVS Apache RR310 which is perfect?
  • Kawasaki Ninja 400 ABS gives a mileage of 30.41kmpl on the highway, as tested by our experts. whereas the claimed aria mileage for the TVS Apache RR 310 petrol is 31kmpl. If you are on a budget and need a sports bike for yourself, then TVS Apache RR 310 is the better pick for you but if you need more power pickup and speed then go for the Kawasaki Ninja 400 ABS. But to know more about this we suggest you take a test ride of the vehicle and then decide. Read more.

  • I think you should not even compare an Apache RR 310 with the Ninja 300 leaving the Ninja 400 aside. I won the Ninja 300 and a friend of mine has the RR310. You can take a test ride of both of them and feel the difference
  • Both are frm different categories tvs has single cylinder Kawasaki has twin cylinder always two is better than one
