The 2023 G20 summit highlighted many things, and this is one of them! | HighRPM

When it comes to the safety and security of the President of the United States, no stone is left unturned. Among the many elements of the President's security apparatus, one stands out as a symbol of unparalleled protection and power – the presidential limousine, affectionately known as "The Beast," Cadillac. A History of The Beast.... The tradition of presidential limousines dates back to the early 20th century, but it was in the 1980s that the Secret Service began using armored Cadillac limousines. These vehicles were specially modified to meet the highest security standards. Over the years, The Beast has evolved, becoming an imposing fortress on wheels. Armored Fortress.... The most striking feature of The Beast is its extraordinary level of armor and protection. While precise details remain classified, it is known to be heavily armored, designed to withstand a range of threats, including ballistic and chemical attacks. The thick armor plating is complemented by bulle

Royal Enfield Himalayan or KTM 390 Adventure or BMW G 310 GS, which one to choose? (Spec comparison) | HighRPM

 If you are an adventure freak and has biking heart and if you are looking to buy one, then these three motorcycles are going to comes in your dreams for sure. These three have an incredible market presence and this is because of their personality, engine, features, look and potentials. These three bikes are none other than 
  • Royal Enfield Himalayan,
  • KTM 390 Adventure and
  • BMW G 310 GS.
They all have different taste, different styling and have different aura too. 

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan- This is the bike which is so freaking popular even it's hard to imagine that how many people are fan of this amazing Indian adventure two wheeler. Its looks, features and capabilities are the reason for this much love and above all it comes home in a pocket friendly price. 

  • KTM 390 Adventure- KTM is famous for its crisp and sharp performance and also for its naughtiness. 390 Adventure have ability of some thrilling adventure and have straight highway conquering strength as well. 

  • BMW G 310 GS- First of all this baby beast born and brought up between some great adventure machines like 1250 GS, 750 GS and other thus, this adventure thing is in its DNA and it feel proud that TVS is also involved in this 310 series of BMW. Coming back to the bike, it is highly affordable where it gives you BMW attitude and amazing biking taste. 

All are best but which one one should choose? We will compare their specs and try to figure out which is most valuable. 

First of all the most important thing what is the price of these motorcycle? 
  • Royal Enfield Himalayan- 2.48 lakh - 2.56 lakh 
  • BMW G 310 GS- 2.90 lakh 
  • KTM 390 Adventure- 3.83 lakh 
Ex-showroom prices

Over here, out of these three the KTM is the most expensive one meanwhile Himalayan has the lowest price than other and the best is that Himalayan carries the biggest engine compare to other two. 

Engine and Power
Himalayan- 411cc single cylinder air cooled engine with bore of 78mm and 86mm of stroke and the compressions ratio is 9.5:1, get 5 gears and BS6 emission norm. 
Power- 24.3bhp at 6500rpm 
Torque- 32Nm at 4500rpm 

G 310 GS- 313cc single cylinder water cooled engine, bore- 80mm; stroke- 62.1mm and compression ratio is 10.9:1. 6 gears, BS6 emission norm. 
Power- 33.5 at 9250rpm
Torque- 28Nm at 7500rpm 

390 Adventure- 373cc single cylinder oil cooled engine, bore- 89mm; stroke- 60mm and compression ratio is 12.6:1. 6 gears, BS6 emission norm. 
Power- 42.3bhp at 9000rpm 
Torque- 37Nm at 7000rpm 

It is clearly visible, why KTM is the most expensive in the group one cause is this, it gives you mind blowing power & torque.

Himalayan- Mileage- 37km/l 
                       Fuel tank capacity- 15L 
                       Range- 555km

G 310 GS- Mileage- 30km/h 
                   Fuel tank capacity- 11L 
                   Range- 330km 

390 Adventure- Mileage- 25.7km/l 
                               Fuel tank capacity- 14.5L 
                               Range- 372.6km 

Himalayan gives you the best mileage, where you also get biggest tank than other however BMW disappointed me over here, fuel tank size is small and mileage is also not that impressive too

Brakes, tyres and Suspension 
Himalayan- Tyres- Front- 90/90 21
                                   Rear- 120/90 17 
                       Brakes- Disc brakes at both the ends. 
                                     Dual channel ABS switchable.
                       Suspension- Telescopic (Front)
                                              Mono shock (Rear) 

G 310 GS- Tyres- Front- 110/80 19 
                            Rear- 150/70 17 
                 Brakes- Disc brakes (Both) 
                                Dual channel ABS 
                 Suspension- Upsidedown fork (Front)
                     Mono shock, preload adjustable (Rear)

390 Adventure- Tyres- Front- 100/90 19 
                                         Rear- 130/80 17 
                             Brakes- Disc brakes (Both) 
                                     Dual channel ABS switchable
                      Suspension- Upsidedown fork (Front)
                                             Mono shock

Good thing about Himalayan and 390 is that they get switchable ABS which is absent in BMW, beemer should give that. All the bikes get dual channel ABS whereas BM and KTM get Upsidedown forks as complementary

Dimensions and weight 
Himalayan- Length- 2.190m 
                      Width- 840mm
                      Height- 1.370m
                      Wheelbase- 1.465m
                      Ground clearance- 200mm
                      Seat height- 800mm
                      Weight- 190kg

G 310 GS- Length- 2.075m
                Width- 880mm
                Height- 1.230m
                Wheelbase- 1.420m
                Ground clearance- Not Available
                Seat height- 835mm
                Weight- 175kg 

390 Adventure- Length- 2.154m
                             Width- 900mm
                             Height- 1.4m
                             Wheelbase- 1.430m
                             Ground clearance- 200mm
                             Seat height- 855mm
                             Weight- 163kg

Length, width, height and wheelbase is almost same of all the bikes but if you are going to think about a mm then Himalayan won in length.
 Ground of Himalayan and 390 is very impressive complementing their adv nature on the other hand BMW ground clearance is not yet available.
Coming to the seat height, Himalayan is good for all short and tall riders but KTM's seat height is too high for short riders and same goes for BMW. 

Himalayan- Headlamp- Halogen 
                       Tail light- LED
                       Blinkers- Bulb
                       DRL- NA 

G 310 GS- Headlamp- LED
                 Tail light- LED
                 Blinkers- LED
                 DRL- LED

390 Adventure- Headlamp- LED 
                              Tail light- LED
                              Blinkers- LED 
                              DRL- LED

Now, this Enfield is not a low cost bike which can't give LEDs. 

Himalayan- Comes with all the basic features including bluetooth connectivity and navigation. It get analogue digital instrument cluster which looks very nice. 

G 310 GS- It comes with just basic features, no phone connectivity nothing like that. Digital instrument cluster is there to tell you about the bike. 

390 Adventure- It offers you traction control system, phone connectivity, quick shifter and this gets the most interesting instrument cluster, fully digital TFT screen which have too things to show you. 

KTM and Royal Enfield both are giving you extra features even KTM is giving you too much which is justify its price point on the other hand BMW is just giving basic functions.
Himalayan- Snow, Granite, Sleet Grey, Gravel Grey, Lake Blue, Rock red, Mirage silver, Granite Black and Pine green. (9 options)

G310GS- Rallye style, Polar white and Cosmic Black. (3 options) 

390 Adventure- Orange and White. (2 options) 

Enfield is offering amazing 9 colour options where it have dual tone and textured as well, however, BMW is given 3 options and KTM just comes in 2. 

Conclusion, all the bikes are fantastic but if you are looking for something powerful and adventurous with features too, then KTM is there if budget is not too tight of you. If you just need a adventure machine which can do all the things nicely, where your pocket has limitations then Enfield is there. 
GS is also a great machine but the biggest problem with BMW right now in India is limited service network which makes things difficult for those who are not so close to some big city. 

Always wear helmet while riding
seat belt while driving.
