    No interference with the windshield and the riding posture is a lot more open now with slightly lighter steering effort

    Hi everyone. This is my first post in this forum. I am a first year mechanical student from Chennai. My dad booked a HIMALAYAN BS6 gravel grey for me to start riding as it has been dream for me from my teen age. I wanted a bike to commute to college twice or thrice a week which is about 75 kilometres round trip and to tour on weekends and on long holidays. Firstly i test rode both Himalayan and the Dominar. I fell in love with the seating posture in the Himalayan. I waited for the BS6 launch to book the bike. I got the bike delivered on 13th of march. I have completed only 100 kilometres as the whole nation had lock-down a week after my bike got delivered. Meanwhile i fixed the crash guards in the bike. As the lock-down is enforced i am just doing the basic maintenance like starting the bike and leaving it idle for 10 minutes. Now my main concern is, will running new bike idle give any problem to the bike? and will the warranty be affected as the 1st service is getting delayed?. Also could i get information about riding groups in Chennai?. THANKS in advance

    On the contrary, the best thing to do is starting the bike, rather than keeping it idle. Starting it and letting it idle for 10 minutes is not a bad idea and in fact helps keep the battery charged. Secondly, your warranty won't be void, RE is very much aware of the lock down and are extending free services dates, you can contact your RE showroom for more information on this. RE has officially sent out mails regarding extension of service intervals especially for new buyers.

    Now, you can catch the Chennai folks by posting your intro in this thread. They'll take you in, contact Sriramefunds.

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Hey guys, I posted previously once but didn't really get a response. Hoping someone would help me out. I am looking to upgrade to either the RE Himalayan BS6 or Dominar 400 BS6 post lockdown. I know there are two different machines but my riding style suits both. Hence I'm so confused. My primary cases would be city riding along with touring.I have just a few questions.1) in the long term which is more reliable? If someone who owns then for a longer period of time can help me out. I plan to keep the bike around for a while.2) I will almost always tour with a pillion and luggage, will the himalayan be able to handle the weight+luggage? Im 5'9" and around 80kg 3) what are the maintenance costs like? I am a student who does odd freelance projects so cost also matters to me. 4) are there any potential problems in the new models of both these bikes ?5) if it's himalayan I'll most probably upgrade the headlamp situation and add panniers, backrest along with crash guards to both the bikes to make it more touring friendly.Personally I thought Dominar would be a batter choice but the suspension setup on the himalayan is just beautiful specially for the roads of Delhi. Feedback would be helpful. Thank You.

    Considering your work profile and ownership costs priorities, look no further than the Himalayan. It's cheaper to maintain, easy to access parts for a DIYer and most of all can handle all the luggage with pillion. The bike has great torque low down, comfortable seating position and a sofa like comfort for pillion. Domi is a great bike too, has excellent VFM proposition and does all the Himalayan does, but ownership vis a vis Domi is more when compared to that of the Himalayan. When it comes to reliability, both have decent reliable track record, but the ease at which Himalayan can be tinkered with, and for hands on people, the Himalayan is an excellent choice.

    Upgrade your Himalayan with a good quality LED headlamp bulb, and if you'd require, a high output AUX lamp and you should be set. There are tons of thorough accessories available for Himalayan and at a decent price, which makes it a complete touring rig.

    Hope it helps! Good luck!

    Cheers!
