Q. Is Duke 250 ABS worth buying? I heard there were issue with air intake and pick up of the bike and there were other issues with engine sound too. Many suggest to go for a Duke 200 or 390 than 250. I am confused. I can't afford 390. My purpose is for daily commute.
  • I own a D250 and is a very easy maintain m/cy. So far has not faced issues with air intake, unusual sounds from engine or pick-up. Could be a specific issue with someone not maintaining the vehicle properly.

Q. Which is best for ladakh Duke 250, Dminar 400 or Himalayan?
  • Among the available options, we would suggest you to go with the Royal Enfield Himalayan as the bike offers spot on ergonomics for touring, brilliant off-roading credentials, and a higher ground clearance for tackling the uneven road. Moreover, Royal Enfield has ironed out the majority of the issues that plagued the first-gen motorcycle and the bike outshine the rivals as an all-rounder. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read More: - Bajaj Dominar 400 vs Royal Enfield Himalayan - [Royal Enfield Himalayan BS6: Road Test Review@https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/
  • https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/" data-repliedtouser="Zigwheels" > I would say ,there is no point in comparing between a 250 cc with a 400 or 500 cc bike , for a ladakh trip ,where the roads arent just tarmac ,you will experience all kinds of terrains , KTM has bravely launched the 390 adventure to go anywhere ,on any type of roads . And yes bajaj 400 has proved itself by finishing a polar Oddessy ride from artic to Antartic .As well as from Banglore to Sydney .whereas i havent seen a royal enfield himalayan doing this .i prefer 390 adventure for ladakh than a 250cc duke .But a point to be noted here is 250 dukes have successfully finished a ladakh ride by many of the owners of the same .
  • https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/royal-enfield-himalayan-bs6-road-test-review/37680/" data-repliedtouser="Zigwheels" > I would put the Himalayan as the first choice, as it is the bike made for the purpose. However if the choice is between the other two then definitely the Choice would be dominar.... This bike has proven its mantle as many a riders have done bigger rides with this bike.
