Q. Which bike is the best for long rides?
  • As per my opinion , RE bikes are good in order of their quality and riding comfort. I recent drove my RE TB 350 for 300 KM long drive to Trichy and back to Bangalore . After riding around 150 KMs , my left shoulder started hurting me and due to this , I couldn’t turn my head to right , if turn so , my shoulder hurts more than normal .So I have decided from then . Not to go long ride which is more than 150KMs. It remain hurts for few days after the ride finished . It’s my opinion . It may be due to my height . I am 6 ft tall .
  • There are ample of options available i.e. Royal Enfield Classic 350, Suzuki Intruder, UM Motorcycles Renegade Commando, Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220, Royal Enfield Himalayan etc. Click on the given link to explore all available options: Choosing one will depend on several factors like budget, brand preference, specific feature requirements etc. Please drop down your requirements so that we can assist you further.
  • For long drives, get a stable bike. a RE 350 or 500 would be best or the RE Himalayan. if budget allows, try one of the new adventure Triumph bikes , these offer higher performance and stability on long journeys. my own RE Thunderbird performs well too but my back does start hurting after a while when driving on longer routes. Good luck

Q. Which one is best compare to Jawa and Thunderbird 350 ABS pricing and every thing
  • Both have an engine differentials as tb350 has got 20bhp where as Jawa has 27, I would recommend for jawa as it is quick in terms of pickup and handling but doesn’t feels heavy, for tb it feels heavy and 500 is good enough rather then 350 but gotta pay some extra bucks! Take a test drive really because i own tb350 but I liked jawa 42. Still tb feels muscular and sexy when U’ll get on the shiny alloy wheels.
  • It’s your choice. As per my knowledge, comparing with all these bikes , I feel Thunderbird is the right choice , why ? Because , it is a cruiser bike and has solid construction which means heavier than the rest of all bikes which gives you more comfortable ride on road and looks like manly . Other these bikes have not much riding comfort. The Jawa bikes haven’t proven anything big in those areas as of now . It may give you some good feedback in future , may try it. As of now , you think about TB 350, but TB 350 X which is latest model and you don’t find much difference in that .think about it before buy .
  • Jawa is yet to prove itself, just a huge launch won't make it a success and company has initially failed to keep up the promise of delivering the bikes on time.Jawa is sold out till September which means even if you book today your bike might be delivered to you next year, better buy thunderbird ABS, else why don't you look for Dominar.in case you are waiting till jan then might RE comeup with the new lineup, refresh models.

Q. I am confused in buying a new bike for my daily commute from home to work of 70 km. I have shortlisted KTM Duke 250, Royal Enfield Thunderbird and Bajaj Dominar. Please give your suggestions.
  • You need for daily commute and thunderbird in traffic is little difficult to tackle and being a biker we have no wait policy and we have to zip through the traffic for which thunderbird is not good.Check ktm or dominar which is more comfortable, dominar will give you little better average and more comfortable Moreover RE needs maintenance and you don’t wish to waste your weekly off in a service centre
  • Thunderbird 350 will give you a mileage 35km/lit. And it will give you the best riding position because of its unique seat design(considering 70 km distance ). Build quality of Bajaj is inferior to RE.So undoubtedly go for RE THUNDERBIRD 350. You will fill like a king.
  • As per ur requirement u have to consider rtr 200 or ns 200, if you have to commute 70 km. You can plan a long distance in these bikes. As per bikes you mentioned above, among them Dominar is good option
