      I'd suggest you install mods, particularly the electrical ones after the warranty period expires. Regarding the engine guard, a normal one would suffice. Rope winding looks cool, but may result in rusting ...Read More

      Q. Which is better? Activa 125 or Burgman?
      Add Answer
      Praveen | 1 year ago
      Burgman gives you more features and much better looks for just around Rs 4,000 more than the top-end Activa. I'd recommend the Burgman over the Activa.

      The KTM 390 Duke's engine is not only the most powerful but is also the most refined among the three. It offers the most value for money in its segment hands down!
