Q. Which is better classic 350 or classic 500 in performance?
  • M having stealth black 500 and its such a special feeling to own the RE which cannot be expressed in words but when it comes to 350 or 500 it is totally on your usage as the first thing is mileage which does not differ much as i m getting around 30+ and in 350 it is around 35 but when it comes to driving for sure you feel d diff the 500 variant is much more plesant in driving. so in my opinion just go for 500 but if you are luking price wise u can choose 350 bcz in looks both are same if you are not choosing the 500 only colour variant
  • Difference will be on the inflow of the fuel . 350 is with carburetor and 500 is with fuel injection. 500 got more pickup but lack in fuel efficiency as compare to the counterpart.i' ve rode my classic 350 for almost 5 years, most of the times in the himalayan region.i found no issue regarding the capacity of the engine.on my personal level i would have picked himalayan for classic 500. decision is yours brother. thanks and keep thumping
  • Having owned the Classic 500 I can tell you that it is not worth the extra money. The performance upgrade is not noticeable. I would suggest you gofor the Classic 350 . But the one thing I noticed is the exclusivity of the Classic 500. As far as I know there are only around 10 in my city out of the 1000s of bullets and that really is something special, so if you are looking for exclusivity then go for the 500.

Q. Which is good to buy between Pulsar RS 200 and KT M Duke 200
  • Firstly, the character of both bikes are different from each other.. The DUKE 200 is high revving motor and has hell lot of power and concentrated at low end you end up falling and loving instantly, but the problem is as it was concentrated at low end there is no power left at topend and struggles to stay at triple digits speed and to cruise but in city you'll have hell lot of fun. The quality is good & maintenance is on higher side compared to RS 200..When comes to RS200 it is butter smooth and power delivery is linear and topend is high compared to duke 200 because of it's long gear ratios and when comes to quality the panels and plastics of RS200 isn't that great they vibrate a lot and endup rattling after few days and The maintenance is on cheaper side and costs half the duke 200 maintenance.
  • If you want quick acceleration,much lighter weight , looks and want to do stunts then go for duke . But if you want sports bike like feel , good mileage of around 32 -35 kmpl , better top speed of 155kmph , soothing sound , ABS and all this at less price then Go for RS200 . I own RS200 now for 3 years . No problem at all .
  • Firstly the character and tuning is different from each other.. The Duke 200 is a high revving engine with lots of power at low end and instantly you'll fall in love but u
