    I use it daily for office commutes. It's quite a breeze. Takes time getting used to the weak bite of the front brakes. Also, the clutch is quite hard. Switching to the slightly longer clutch cable of Classic 350 helps. But on broken tarmac, you will thank the suspension of this bike.

    I am riding bike in Delhi NCR and gurgon from last 3 Months . Bike just start heating sometimes in deadly traffic otherwise the bike is really good when it comes to city Ride. Weight distribution , torque and the bike is controllable in city .

    Both tour and city commute go for it. If you want only for city commute then no. To be more precise, it can handle traffic, tight spaces(its tall but slim) , bad roads. but not heat, it cannot handle Chennai heat from march to june between 9:00 to 6:00 traffic. it will heat up like crazy. Petrol tank , seat all will be hot. It looks and behaves like a tourer, so daily commute will feel wierd.

    Depends. If you planning to ride in only city then the Himalayan is not for you. It is best suitable for off road and highways. City ride is OK but you will feel the heat from the 400cc engine.

    It's not exactly. For long ride or off roading Himalayan is awsome but if you only ride in city conditions don't go for it.
