FAQ's

  1. I am planning to buy a new motorcycle but I am confused between the dual channel ABS and single channel ABS options. Which one should I go for?

    ABS or anti-lock braking system is an electronic safety fitment which has been mandated for all two-wheelers exceeding 125 cc capacity in India since 1 April 2019. As the name suggests, it helps the tyres from locking up and skidding under hard braking conditions. A single channel ABS is provided in the front wheel while the dual channel is for both the wheels. Dual channel ABS is a better option as it offers a slightly better coverage when it comes to safety.

  2. Which is the best motorcycle that I can buy for myself?

    The ‘best motorcycle’ will vary from person to person and the best way to find that out would be test riding the prospective models. As a rider, you might have a priority in terms of the genre of motorcycle that you want for yourself. On the basis of that, you can shortlist a few motorcycles, check out their reviews, and then take a test ride for the same to decide the one that suits you best.

  3. I want a good motorcycle which will also help me while I am on off-road tours. What are my options?

    With adventure motorcycling and touring becoming more and more popular in the country, there are a few options from which you can choose. For the starters, you can go for the entry level motorcycles such as the Hero Xpulse 200 and the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Other than that, there are some more premium options such as the Benelli TRK 502. You can also consider the high-end motorcycles, such as the Suzuki V-Strom 650 XT, the Triumph Tiger series, the Honda Africa Twin, and so on.

  4. Which is the best cruiser motorcycle that I can get for myself?

    There are a host of options when it comes to cruiser motorcycles in India. Right from the single cylinder Bajaj Avenger, Royal Enfield Classic 350, to the Jawa Perak, Honda H’ness, and so on, there are a number of options. However, the wisest choice would be to short-list the bikes that you like and then go for a test run and accordingly take a decision for the purchase.
