Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Honda hness 350 or fzx which is best to buy
  • Selecting between the Honda Hness CB350 and Yamaha FZ-X would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, performance figures, features required, etc. The FZ-X is a bit of a mixed bag. On one hand, it does work extremely well in the city. But on the other hand, it doesn’t really hit the mark in any other respect. We really think Yamaha would’ve been better off getting the XSR155 to India since they already make the MT15 here. Sure it might have been a bit more expensive, but compared to the Huskies or the CB350RS, it would’ve still been the most affordable neo-retro bike in the country. It would’ve even made sense for Yamaha to build a neo-retro bike on the FZ25 platform. That way it would at least have had more punch and better highway legs. At the end of the day, if you wanted a bike in this 150-160cc segment, and Bluetooth connectivity isn’t a big deal for you, the standard FZ-FI is 98 percent the same bike, looks much, much better, and saves you 12,000 Rupees in the process. If you want our wholehearted recommendation, that would be it. Whereas, if you are looking for a comfortable, easy-to-handle bike with marries old-school charm and modern sensibilities well, you may go for Honda Hness CB350. It gets a prominent thumper exhaust note and it is the most affordable bike in India to get traction control. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link and select your desired city for dealership.Read more:- Yamaha FZ-X: Road Test ReviewRead more:- Honda H’ness CB350 Road Test Review: Should RE Be Worried?
  • Honda Hness 350 gives you more power and FZ-X gives you better mileage but less power as compare to h'ness..! For FZ-X you have to pay 1.5lacs and for H'ness you have to pay 2.5lac almost 1 lac price difference in both of bikes. It depends upon your budget and choice
Q. Which bike is better FZ-X or CB200X?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. The Yamaha FZ-X is a great commuter thanks to its easy-going ergonomics and suspension. But there’s no going around the fact that the Yamaha FZ-X is a head-turner (may not be for all the right reasons). So, if you are on a hunt for a bike that stands out in the general crop of commuters in the segment, the Yamaha FZ-X is the one for you. On the other hand, Honda CB200X offers comfortable ergonomics and a relaxed riding position. This bike has unmistakably stylish looks. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -Yamaha FZ-X: Road Test Review.-Honda’s Affordable ADV Reaches Dealerships: Image Gallery.-Honda India, Can We Get The CRF190L ADV Soon?.
  • YES.
Q. Which one should I go for - Yamaha FZ-X or Hero Xtreme 160R for long distance biking which one is better?
  • Selecting the right bike would depend on several factors such as your budget preference on the segment, features required, engine options, brand preference, etc. Yamaha FZ-X is powered by a 149 cc engine. This FZ-X engine generates a power of 12.4 PS @ 7250 rpm and a torque of 13.3 Nm @ 5500 rpm. The claimed mileage of FZ-X is 55.11 kmpl. On the other hand, The Xtreme 160R is the most exciting motorcycle to come out of the stables of Hero MotoCorp in the recent past. It has the styling, performance, and dynamics to take on the competition. However, its pricing will be crucial to make an impact on the segment. Hero Xtreme 160R is powered by a 163 cc engine. This Xtreme 160R engine generates a power of 15.22 PS @ 8500 rpm and a torque of 14 Nm @ 6500 rpm. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
  • Depends upon your age, I mean if you are below 30 you can easily cruse on sport bike like extreme 160R but if your 30+ person then defiantly go for FZ-X
