Bike Up­grade

Bike India - - READERS WRITE -

I have been us­ing a Ba­jaj Pul­sar 220 for a few years now and I am look­ing for an up­grade. I am look­ing at the KTM 250/390 Duke or the new TVS Apache RR310. I want a good amount of power but, at the same time, I want a bike that is also com­fort­able for tour­ing and long-dis­tance riding ev­ery now and then. I also need a com­fort­able seat with enough room for lug­gage. Please also sug­gest some brands or mod­els of small to medium-sized riding bags that will suit these bikes.

Dear Ro­hit,

Of the three bikes you have men­tioned, the RR310 would be the most suit­able for tour­ing, even though long rides are also very much pos­si­ble on the 250 and 390 Dukes. All the three bikes have sim­i­lar-sized pil­lion seats where you can mount your lug­gage. As for lug­gage brands, you may look at Dirt­sack and Vi­aTerra. We’ve used both and can at­test to their qual­ity. Be­sides, they are quite af­ford­able too. Happy riding!
