Q. Which is best bike, Classic 350 or Thunderbird 350X?
  • Depends on your riding style, height. Thunderbird 350x BS4 has an issue with the Tank creating a vacuum which doesn't allow the fuel to flow freely and thus halting the engine. I've personally experienced the the issue and the bike stops every 2-3kms on a speed between 60-80km/hr. My cousin faced similar issue on classic 350 but the issue resolved after first service.

  • Both are completely different from each other.. As they both built on same platform and use of same parts the handling is similar.. If need power blindly go for duke 200 it is the best revving engine in the low end... Need a mileage with ktm looks then go for Duke 125... If your on budget & planning for duke 125 instead go for the Pulsar 200 NS it makes more sense then buying of same priced duke 125
  • Duke 200 is the best if you need the power.. duke 125 isn't the best in performance ... to make it simple Duke 200 gives you good low end power with avg mileage of 28-33 kmpl sometimes 35kmpl if you are not hard on throttle... Duke 125 doesn't have such power but has the ktm DNA and dynamics as it was built on same duke 200 platform but due to high low cc you'll getting a good mileage of 45kmpl

Q. Which is good to buy between Thunderbird 350X and Thunderbird 350
  • 350 & 350x both are better in their way...if you take 350 its not alloy, not ABS which is in offering from RE for 350x350 has more comfortable seat arrangement, not in 350x, & having some issue with fuel supplies, saw leakage in one of my friends' bikesoo i would rather suggest go for RE Thunderbird 350 with ABS obviously
  • 350x has straight handle bar with upright riding stance which is more convenient for long rides and 350 has different handle bar setup. you may test ride before deciding
  • Now both 350 and 350x comes with dual channel abs. So, with the same engine and same capacity i would recommend to go for 350x because of alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. If you get the alloy wheels and tubeless tyres outside, the ABS warranty would be void. Why take a risk instead go for 350X.
