Q. Which is best bike, Classic 350 or Thunderbird 350X?
  • Depends on your riding style, height. Thunderbird 350x BS4 has an issue with the Tank creating a vacuum which doesn't allow the fuel to flow freely and thus halting the engine. I've personally experienced the the issue and the bike stops every 2-3kms on a speed between 60-80km/hr. My cousin faced similar issue on classic 350 but the issue resolved after first service.
  • Royal Enfield motorcycles are tailor-made for leisure riding. Despite the competition getting modern and tougher, the legendary motorcycle maker has left an indelible mark in the Indian two-wheeler market as well as on the minds of many riders. Both vehicles are from different segments Royal Enfield Classic 350 is an STD commuter motorcycle(Good for city rides) whereas Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X is a cruiser motorcycle (Good for long rides) so it depends on your requirements and usage.For more comparison click on the given link:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/royal-enfield-classic-350-vs-royal-enfield-thunderbird-350x Royal Enfield Bikes - Which One Suits You Best: - https://www.zigwheels.com/news-features/news/royal-enfield-bikes-which-one-suits-you-best/30469/
  • If your opting for a daily commute than long tours. Please opt Classic 350.If your thinking for both options, you can prefer 350X. It has the looks, Better ergonomics, Tubeless tyres and alloy wheels with dual channel ABS>PS: - Believe me its a head turner

Q. Which is good to buy between Thunderbird 350X and Thunderbird 350
  • 350 & 350x both are better in their way...if you take 350 its not alloy, not ABS which is in offering from RE for 350x350 has more comfortable seat arrangement, not in 350x, & having some issue with fuel supplies, saw leakage in one of my friends' bikesoo i would rather suggest go for RE Thunderbird 350 with ABS obviously
  • 350x has straight handle bar with upright riding stance which is more convenient for long rides and 350 has different handle bar setup. you may test ride before deciding
  • Now both 350 and 350x comes with dual channel abs. So, with the same engine and same capacity i would recommend to go for 350x because of alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. If you get the alloy wheels and tubeless tyres outside, the ABS warranty would be void. Why take a risk instead go for 350X.

Q. Which is best MT-15 or Duke 125?
  • According to your question ,MT 15 is more comfort with a power full engine.duke 125 is not bad ,it has 124 cc engine but it compitating with 150 cc bikes.both are good.
  • Well looking at price point I would say duke 125 is worth it but if you are looking for power then definitely go for mt-15 . Even though mt-15 has bigger cc engine it can still provide 50 km mileage .Note : Does not know the mileage capabilities of duke 125.
  • First thing both are quite overpriced for what they offer and there are lot other bikes that offer good performance at a better price looks aren't the only thing that matters prefer indian brands they offer better quality and at low cost
