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 better between Dominar 400 and Apache RR 310
  • Here are the points to consider:1. comfortApache 3/5domi 4/52. looks Apache 5/5domi 4/53. overall handlingApache 4/5domi 3/54. value for money Apache 4/5domi 4/55. after sales cost:Apache 2/5domi 4/56. spares price:Apache 2/5domi 4/57. parts availability:apache 3/5domi 4/58. local mechanics availability (for minor issues like chain lock, gear lever, etc)Apache 3/5domi 4/5in the end, ride both motorcycles and decide.both are of different budget bikes, and both has different characteristics.If touring is priority,then dominar makes more sense, touring below 500 kms a day then Apache is also good. people have done ladakh on Apache too, depends on rider fitness and skills.I would choose Apache mainly for my riding style.
  • It's depend on you both bike performance are same but approx 60K price difference is there. Build quality of RR310 is better than Dominar 400. you can comfortably go on long tour with pillion in Dominar 400 but RR 310 is sports kind of bike so it is not suitable for pillion. if you are looking for good bike in decent price tag and comfortable for both rider and pillion then go for Dominar 400. if you are looking for sport kind of good looking bike and you don't care about price and pillion rider as well then go for RR310 choice is your.
  • Both are better in their own segment.One is a complete tourer and the other is a sports tourer.So the best tourer is Dominor and the best sports tourer is RR.According to your need, you can choose one. But if you are into the lifestyle and touring then I would prefer RR.Whenever I take RR on to road I will always find people staring at my bike.So the decision is yours.

Q. Which is better between KTM RC390 & APACHE RR 310?
  • Apache RR 310, despite being designed as a track focussed bike, is quite usable in the city thanks to its torquey and tractable motor. It offers a good balance between ride and handling as well. While brakes lack initial feel, they offer good bite. Another issue is vibrations around the 6000rpm range, which TVS has reduced to a fair degree. It is a good option to the focussed KTM RC 390, trading a bit of performance for everyday usability. KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. Between the TNT 300 and the KTM 390 Duke, the Benelli comes across as a motorcycle for people looking for a more relaxed way of commuting. The 390 Duke on the other hand is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers. Though, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to pick one.
  • The Apache RR 310, despite being designed as a track focussed bike, is quite usable in the city thanks to its torquey and tractable motor.

Another issue is vibrations around the 6000rpm range, which TVS has reduced to a fair degree. While the KTM RC 390 has a upper hand in terms of power and is priced higher than the Apache RR 310, it packs in a lot more punch packed with more tech and is also a pure track-focused machine. It has remained a go-to option for riders looking for a dedicated track tool owing to its ergonomics, suspension setup and handling characteristics. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride in order to check riding comfort. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://bit.ly/2jv2aXQ
  • KTM's RC 390 is definitely the best performer because both power and torque outputs of the RC are higher than the RR310. However, you would be in trouble if you buy an RC390 for daily commute or long rides. The heat dissipation system in the RC is too bad to handle in the regular daily city traffic and the RC 's committed riding posture and the fuel tank capacity are a big negative if you are buying one for long rides. Apache RR310 will be the best performer for regular city rides and long rides while the RC will be the top performer if you are a track rider.
