    Default Which bike

    Hello everyone,
    I am confused which bike to buy
    My first option was used r3 but did not find any still now
    Second was cbr 250r but no indication from honda whether it will launch and when
    Mostly looking for faired ones
    Only naked i liked was 2k17 duke 390 ,that too only white colour but sadly was limited edition
    I am shifting from re classic 500 desert strom ( really fed up with its reliablity)
    Please suggest as i am in no hurry
    (R3 goes out of budget so looking for used one .Also will it be right decision as i will be using the bike for atleast 5 years)
    Budget upto 2.8L max
    My use will be 70%city 30%highways
    Thanks

    Seems rather obvious. But the RC390?
    Biking is not about what you have between your legs, its all about how well you use it!!!!!!!

    Will his back be able to take it? Given the fact that he is coming from a RE.

    Hyper retard has a good point.. He is not used to such riding angles.. R3 still has abetter riding angle than rc390.. but its out of his budget.. Best vfm is duke 390.. Or may b u can wait for tvs to launch their 300cc bike .. It might launch in july.. It will be in ur budget.. Otherwise compromise on fully faired if u want driving pleasure.. Thats all..

    All the best..

    I am not his chiropractor. So can't comment on what his back can or cannot handle That is best for him to figure out!

    Just because he currently rides an RE, doesn't necessarily mean that he is overweight and terribly unfit! That would be stereotyping

    But the least we can be is considerate while making suggestions.

    D390 seems a best buy for you and comes with all loaded goodies.

    PS: White was never a limited edition, it was supposed to be sold outside India and one lot apparently lost its way to our shores and was sold here. So, its ORANGE all the way.
    R15S - Current
    Honda Dio - Current
    TNT 600i - Sold
    Classic 500 - Sold
    Pulsar 220 dtsi - Sold
    Yamaha YBX125 - Sold

    Many people told me that white will be coming by next year and this reason that those were meant for export was trick by ktm itself to find out the demand for whites.This is what i heard and dont know what real truth is.I personally also feel that it was not a mistake as all the specs were exactly same as indian model
