    Default Please help Me choose a two wheeler for daily commute of 80 KM updown to work

    Dear Friends, Please help me choose a two wheeler for daily commute of 80 KM updown to work. In this around 60KM will be Highway.

    I am 6 Foot in height and weighs around 90KG.

    I have a budget of between 150000-200000.

    I am more inclined of getting a Royal Enfield. I am not into speed as my average speed on two wheeler is in and around 60-80KMH.

    I am also concerned about my back and give most importance to riding comfort.

    i would not advice a bullet because of reliability issues.(i ve suffered with TB500, now sold)
    Furthermore as 200,000 is a big amount and major of your travel will be on the highway, i would only recommend you go for ABS bike. Its a life saver
    currently following bikes are there that have abs

    -Dual channel ABS-
    Dominar 400
    Duke 390
    apache 180

    -Single channel ABS-
    NS200
    Gixxer SF FI
    Intruder 150

    My recommendation is in the above mentioned order.
    D400 is most bang for the buck and has the best headlights too.
    Good luck.

    Dominar gives 35 if you ride sanely on higways below 100kmph.
    Does RE match this figure at that speed?

    I own it and always get more than 32+ i tour only on hills for suspension i havent rode it offroad will this year maybe ladakh(if it is in my luck) but it manages quite well IMO rest is your decision by your comment i infer that you are leaning towards RE so go for it every bike has its own set of problems
