    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Which is the better option to buy Himalayan, continental GT650,interceptor ,Dominar 400,ktmrc200,duke 200?
    • All these bikes are of different segments and of different price ranges too. Dominar 400 is a good all-rounder bike, it would be a good option if you want a bike for city commutes as well as for long rides. Moreover, if you often tackle bad road conditions also, Royal Enfield Himalayan, would be a better pick. Continental GT650 is a good option if you are looking for a more refined and fun to ride bike and with the same power if you often go for long rids, you may go for Royal Enfield Interceptor 650. KTM RC 200 would be a good pick if you want good power performance and good feature list at a budget. But its ergonomics limits its usability in long rides. On the other hand, KTM 200 Duke would be a good pick if you want a lightweight fun to ride bike with better handling. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
    Q. Should I take a chance and buy either the Continental GT 650 or the Interceptor 650 within the next few months Have test ridden the bikes and found them amazing, but what worries me is after sales maintenance and availability of parts etc. fact is I love Neo-Retro bikes and frankly at that price point there is no other option. What do you guys think
    • The Continental GT 650 is the perfect upgrade for a Royal Enfield enthusiast who’s keen on buying a retro-modern sporty motorcycle. However, its slightly aggressive riding position may not be comfortable for long rides. The Interceptor 650 proved to be a rather impressive motorcycle. While it isn’t the most powerful or quickest twin out there, it is just so much fun to ride. It’s an extremely likeable motorcycle that’s just bursting with charm and character, and believe us, these aren’t terms we throw around casually. While if we talk about service, maintenance and availability of parts, it will depend on availability of service centers in you city and can vary from city to city. So, we would suggest you to exchange your words with authorized service center as they will be the better persons to assist you in this concern.

    Q. What is best between continental or interceptor
    • Continental is a pakka cafe racer...and it looks more attractive than interceptor,I think both the bikes have equal performance including top speed,the main difference is its "RIDING COMFORT". U must test drive both the bikes if ur willing to buy these bikes.Tnq💥
    • Continental GT is a little bit advanced in the case of acceleration, cornering etc. than interceptor.
    • I am a gt650 owner but i think Interceptor is much better than this
