    Yes, the Himalayan is a very suitable city ride. Enough low end torque to keep you going. It is definitely a great highway tourer. Luggage is no problem at all. the seating posture is perfect. However, you might miss the power output on straight patches. But then again, its not made for the crazy speed. It is in all ways better than the Thunderbird 350.

    If you're able to take heavy load then just go for it ... It's around 195kg bcoz.... And if you're looking for daily city rides then I'll suggest you to don't go for it... The bike is too heavy for cities and the biggest problem is the height of seat... You'll have face troubles if you're about to use this bike in cities for daily wages...!

    On this price segment there is no better option available than Himalayan. The bike is perfectly made for touring and specially for Indian roads . If you still have doubt then you can take a test ride with all the available options but in the end your only FAVOURITE is going to be HIMALAYAN .

    The main thing noticdafter

    The main thing i noticed after buying the bike in 2018 is the low quality parts and paint.After riding about 20k kms there are few things that i noticed.The engine oil looses its property really quickly in air cooled engine.After 1k the engine heat and vibration or buzz increases with hard gear shifts.The clutch is very heavy.In city bumper to bumper trafic the engine heat and heavy clutch is really uncomfortable.Speed beyond 100 is not favourable because apparent engine buzz on the handlebar, Seat and footpegs.Beyond 100 its still behaves like the old re buzzy engine.The acceleration is good but not that thrilling.Rollon acceleration from 60 to 100 on fifth gear is not that good its jerky.To pull the bike harder it need to downshift if its moving slower than 70 kmph.Even at speed breaker of the bike is slowed down below 20 it has to downshift to 2nd gear to attain speed quickly.It refuses to move forward even on 3ed gear.The main reason being the weight.The braking needs a whole lot of improvement.The part that really worn out fast is the accelerator cable.It becomes hard really soon.And the cup and cone bearing is a well known issue in the biker community.An average bike for the cost its not value for money.
