  • Which Bike should i buy in 2018?

    Hi,

    Can someone kindly help me with my dilemma.
    I am looking for a new bike and the budget is 1.8 lakh rupees.
    I have zeroed in on 3 bikes classic gun metal grey, Himalayan bs4 and dominar 400.
    I have test ridden all these bikes several times. Ride quality that I found during test ride was in the following order Himalayan>>Gunmetal>>Dominar.Himalayan actually blows the competition out of the water in ride quality.It is superb.

    I am inclined towards Gunmetal grey and Himalayan but my only issue is with reliability.In gun metal grey I have seen rear disc brakes getting locked.In Himalayan people are not happy with BS4 variant(hard clutch and heating issues). Dominar on other hand is not my type of bike but it is reliable.

    Are these issues in RE because of manufacturing or improper service .

    I am 5ft10.My weight is 76 kgs.I can cruise on 60-80km/hr happily.I don't like to rev the engine. I don't like to cruise in triple digits as it would mean theft of the sceneries for me.

    Can someone please shed some light on Himalayan BS4 performance after a prolonged use.
    I have started this new thread as all other threads were old and none had enough information about new BS4 himalayan

    Thank you.

      Why not FZ 25 or Fazer 25?
      Himalayan comes with its own set of issues and niggles. One has to learn to live with it. In the end just go for whatever you feel is good as everyone has there own impressions of motorcycles.

          I would say just avoid RE. As mentioned earlier by xbhpian above Dominar and FZ250 or DUKE200 would be a good choice.

              If you want a reliable & hassle free experience, just simply avoid RE. Yamah FZ25 comes to mind & Dominor seems good too.

                You like Himalayan and Gunmetal. For name sake added the D400 which is not your type of bike. You like the Gunmetal then just buy it. No point discussing about reliability of any of the RE bikes. They all are more or less in the same ballpark. You don't need this thread :P
