    Q. I wanted to buy a bike in 300 to 400 cc. Which one should I go for among RC 390, Yamaha R3, Hyosung GTR 250, Apache RR 310 and Ninja 300? Please suggest me a better bike.
    • It depends on your taste and your attitude.1.if you want a bike to take to track - rc 390 is the best choice. mind you its not at all comfortable.2. if you want a bike with brand image and one that impresses by its name itself - Ninja 300 is the best choice. its the jack of all trades, i.e., it an all rounder .3. if you want a bike that is easy on the pocket and cheaper to maintain, has good looks and is comfortable to ride.- apache rr310 is the best choice.4. finally i don't see a reason at all to buy the yamaha r3 or the hyosung gt250r. the value for money and equipment offered is not on par with the competition. PS- all of these bikes are fun to ride and accelerate really fast!!! please wear proper rider gear.ride safe.
    • It purely depends on your riding style and the purpose. If you’re someone who rides aggressively and loves attacking corner, don’t look any further rc 390 is the one. But if you like to tour, commute and attack corners once in a while the R3 and Ninja 300 are the bikes for you. I personally prefer the R3 over the ninja 300 just because of the way it looks and the punch from the engine. I’m not a huge fan of the RR 310 it’s trying a lil too hard to do everything and doesn’t really stand out at anything. So to put it short, power and handling: rc390, touring and practicality: R3
    • See being an rc owner, i would definitely recommend RC but it really depends on what criteria you are looking most, if u want something for regular commuting i won't suggest unless you won't have any complaints due to its sitting position and heating issues even other riders may other opinions regarding its heating issues, I'm ok with it cuz that's why I've bought it right. But if you want something low in power, comfort riding, occasional track rides, or long commute go for rr 310. But hey there is nothing like an RC390.#proudRC owner.

    Q. Which is good RC390 or RR310 for city, highway and track. Which one to buy - FZ 25?
    • As per the requirement, we'd recommend going with the TVS Apache RR 310 as the bike offers balanced out performance for the city and on highways. The Apache RR 310 draws power from a 312.2cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected unit that belts out 34PS of maximum power and 27.3Nm of torque. The trellis frame is suspended on inverted forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. TVS offers dual-channel ABS as standard too. On the other hand, if you require a more powerful bike with aggressive styling and sharp handling, then you may opt for the RC 390. The 373.2cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled engine spits out a max power figure of 43.50PS. In order to know which bike would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test ride. Please click on the following link and select your city accordingly for the dealership details -
    • Rc 290 is best for highway and track specialy but rr310 is for city and highway
    • Make up your mind. The above 3 are completely different bikes
    Q. Which bike is better on daily traffic and long ride RC390, RR310 or Duke 250?
    • For a perfect bike choice, a comparison is to be done on the basis of price, size, mileage, performance, features, and other specs. Among the three bikes, the most suitable option could be the KTM 250 Duke, the bike offers better handling and commuting in the city as well as on the highways. The bike has a 248.8cc liquid-cooled motor that makes 30PS, 5PS more than the 200 Duke. It gets a slipper clutch. As the other bikes in options are more track-focused bikes, you may face difficulty in the city rides. For more information on the 250 Duke, follow the given link - Info. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bike for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city. You can click on the following link to see the details of the nearest dealership and selecting your city accordingly - Dealers.
    • Duke 250 would be a balanced choice for both daily commute and travel.
    • Duke 250...has more service centres for long rides
