Bikes To Buy Instead Of Royal Enfield

In India, Royal Enfield now dominates the middle-weight 350cc motorcycles market. The business sells the Classic 350, Bullet, and Meteor 350 in this market. In addition, RE is constructing the Classic 350, and a 350cc roadster dubbed the Hunter 350.

One of the most popular vehicles on the Indian motorbike market is the Royal Enfield Classic 350. The recently released Meteor 350 is also becoming more popular among cruiser motorcycle riders. Most two-wheeler manufacturers are developing modern takes on traditional designs and middle-weight motorcycles to compete with Royal Enfield. In addition, there aren’t many bikes in this category on the market that you may purchase instead of the Royal Enfield.

Benelli’s retro-modern motorcycle, the Imperiale 400, competes with the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Jawa Standard. The Imperiale 400 costs more than its competitors, which increased during the BS6 transition. Benelli, however, has decreased the cost of its product by Rs 10,000 by boosting localization.

Design-wise, the Imperiale 400 is a traditional antique motorcycle. It has a round headlamp with chrome housing and round turn indicators. Spoke wheels, mirrors, levers, and tail lamps all get a chrome finish. The vehicle is built around a steel double cradle structure that holds split seats and a peanut-shaped fuel tank. The bike sports a twin-pod instrument cluster with chrome bezels from Benelli that give it a vintage appearance.
