Q. Which is better between Dominar 400 and Apache RR 310
  • RR310 is a premium category bike.It doesn't produce as much power as the Dominar, but it's a much linear delivery of power, so it won't be intimidating for a fairly new rider.It has very good styling, excellent road presence, considerably better after sales support.Maintenance wise it won't break your wallet either.On the other hand, Dominar is a much more VFM product.The new version now even comes with an engine that produces 40HP, 5HP more than the RR310.Dominar is no doubt the faster motorcycle of the two and sounds better as well.And in my personal opinion, Dominar is a much more usable bike interms of daily commute due to its seating posture and a refined engine.So, if you're looking for a bike for mostly touring and occasional city rides with best possible reliability go for RR310. For anything and everything else go with Dominar, you definitely won't be disappointed. Good Luck !
  • 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.

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.

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.

Q. Which is worth to buy between KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja and Apache RR 310?
  • RC 390 and Ninja are more power full bike than RR310. But if you are looking for decent bike like in milage, comfort and price as well then RR310 is the best option. Coz RR310 ground clearance is good and suspension is little lighter so that is not good for cornering as RC390 but RR310 is more comfortable in city. So it's up to us what we like coz all three bike has three different look and different price tag as well. you can chose any as per your choice. if you are looking for good sport kind of bike in decent price tag then RR310 would be good choice.
  • In terms of looks the order is as follows :Apache RR310>Kawasaki Ninja>KTM RC390.In terms of performance:KTM RC390>Kawasaki Ninja>Apache RR310.If you are ready to spend more bucks, then go for the RC390 because you cannot get a better performer than this beast.If you need a more balanced machine then Apache RR310 is the one.
  • Bro go for the Rr 310 best overall package.
