    Q. Royal Enfield Signals ABS and Yamaha R15 V3 who is the best bike and have good resale value - Classic 350?
    • Sir first of all you should not compare both bikes as the royal enfield is a tourer and R15 v3 being a sports bike. But among those two I would recommend the royal enfield as it has the best re-sale value in the segment. And also provides a mileage of 40 kmpl, which is good for a 350cc bike.
    • Royal Enfield Signals ABS
    • RE has resale value if you have any doubt see in olx and ask any owner of RE bike. because my RE is 2014

    Q. For 6ft tall guy. Is RE Classic 350 good or should go for R15 V3, can you suggest?
    • Having personally used both bikes very intensively, my opinion is that R15 V3 will be uncomfortable due to knee length and also the bike is bit short. For a taller person it will not look good too. On the other side, the Classic 350 is really good choice for person of height 6 feet and also performance is really good. I own 2017 Classic 350 which had no ABS. Still I had not encountered amr major issues at all. Maintenance of Classic 350 is much cost effective and easier than R15. Anyway now both the bikes come with ABS as standard.My suggestion is to go for Classic 350!
    • They totally different bike versions and all most have same maintenance cost looking onto your height you should go for re 350 bt keep in mind this bike requires more care than r15
    • It's better to go for RE 350 and if u r looking forward to performance oriented one please go for r15 v3
