Smoked Garage is a custom motorcycle building company located in Bali. They were recently commissioned by Royal Enfield to built a custom Himalayan. The Smoked Garage made a custom bike but the finished product blew everyone’s mind.
I rode the Royal Enfield Himalayan recently, the model which I rode was a Carb unit with no ABS. It was the only Himalayan available at the showroom and besides I wanted to test the bike on dirt and the ABS would have just gotten in the way. For me, fuel injection isn’t a necessity, as I don’t mind a jumpy throttle. Now, I rode the Himalayan mostly on off-road terrain and learned the following things about it.
During the reveal of Hero X-Pulse 200, a Hero MotoCorp executive pointed out that the main problem for people going to Ladakh is their ill-equipped bike. People just use normal road bikes to cross dangerous trails and there is a better way to do, he said, while revealing the XPulse 200. Let’s take a look at some of the features which make the Hero’s new adventure bike stand out from the rest.
Royal Enfield Himalayan was notorious for breaking down at the speed of 40 km/h, it is the truth and nobody can deny that. It has broken down in more ways we can even think of but all this can only be said about the old Himalayan, which came with a “Carb” unit. The new Himalayan Fi is certainly not bulletproof because no bike is. It is what it exactly needs to be, a motorcycle which needs less maintenance than any other bike in its category.
We were all waiting for a long time for the BMW G310 GS to get launched so we could finally compare it with the Kawasaki Versys X 300, for mainly 2 reasons. First, the Versys is a perfect platform that blends off-road and on-road performance and two, just like the BMW 310 GS, it suffers from limited service stations and outlets. So let’s begin:
We have compared the advantages of several bikes for quite a long time but after owning one, it’s the cons which people usually care about. So today we are going to compare two entry-level Adventure tourers, Royal Enfield Himalayan FI and BMW G310 GS, to see what their cons are.
The entry-level adventure gallery in India consists only of Royal Enfield Himalayan, a much-needed gap is soon to be filled by the BMW G 310 GS. While a patient man will wait for the little beemer, but I am not one, so I decided to do some research and stumbled upon the Kawasaki Versys X300. To my surprise, it turned out to be a very capable adventure bike. Let me tell you why.
It isn’t just a SCRAMBLER with off road tyres and increased height; it’s practically a new bike. So let’s see what the R&D at Ducati has come up with to carry the already successful Scrambler brand to new heights.
The word Multistrada is Italian for 'many roads '. The motorcycle is designed to handle all kinds of road conditions, be it normal roads or off roads. The motorcycle is a hybrid of a supermoto and a sports touring machine. The motorcycle looks completely different when it is seen in flesh, it looks so damn huge, and masculine and can be an eye grabber the next moment it passes you. Ducati launched the Multistrada 950 on 14th June 2017 in Delhi at a price tag of INR 12.60 lakhs.
