Orange beast is now more agile than before, KTM 390 Duke | Price, Mileage, Features, Power | HighRPM

Duke 390 The 3rd generation of the KTM 390 Duke is literally shaking the market with its sharp design which is now more edgy than before, making this bike more attractive and mean-looking at the same time. Regarding performance, the KTM 390 Duke always shocked the ride with its flying ability and instant power delivery. This 2024 KTM 390 Duke has reduced some orange and weight too, thanks to that, along with the sporty design it is looking pretty elegant as well. More Sharp edges have been introduced this time and they are doing their job to give it a monster kinda feel.  Being a naked street fighter it's very agile like before and even more so thanks to the reduced wheelbase which added more maneuverability to this aggressive bike.  KTM 390 Duke Price The KTM 390 Duke is available only in a single variant, costing you around 3.10 lakh ex-showroom. There are two colour schemes that you can opt for Atlantic Blue and the other one is Electronic Orange. the Electronic Orange fuel tan

Which one you should choose, the Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 or the Honda NX500? | HighRPM

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450. 

The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well. So, it's going to be very interesting to see which of these two bikes which one succeeds in grabbing the market, and which one you should choose.

Engine

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

Engine- liquid-cooled single-cylinder DOHC 452cc engine with 84mm of bore and 81.5mm of stroke
Power40bhp of power at 8000rpm
Torque- 40Nm of torque at 5500rpm

Honda NX500

Engine- liquid-cooled DOHC parallel twin 471cc engine which has 67mm of bore, 66.8mm of stroke, and a compression ratio of 10.7:1
Power46.8bhp of power at 8600rpm 
Torque43Nm of torque at 6500rpm. 

There is not a massive difference between the power and the torque figures of these two difference. The Honda NX500 gives you more power and torque than the RE Himalayan 450. 


Mileage

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

Mileage- 28-29kmpl of fuel efficiency you can extract from this ADV. 
Fuel Capacity- 17 litres
Range- 476km to 493km

Honda NX500

Mileage- 27-28kmpl of fuel efficiency. 
Fuel Capacity- 17.5 litres
Range- 472km to 490km

There is no difference between the mileage of these two machines.


Features

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

  • Fully digital round instrument cluster,
  • Phone connectivity,
  • Full navigation on the instrument cluster,
  • Control music, calls, and message notifications, 
  • Switchable dual-channel ABS,
  • Traction control, 
  • Riding modes,
  • Ride-by-wire tech and all the usual things like, gear position indicator, clock, trip meter, tachometer, etc. 

Honda NX500

  • 5-inch digital display,
  • smartphone connectivity, 
  • Honda's torque control, 
  • Slipper clutch, 
  • Focus light at the front and 
  • Dual channel ABS. 
  • Other than these it comes with a gear position indicator, clock, tachometer, and all the usual things.

Both the bikes have gone crazy in terms of features too, Honda has introduced their new cluster and RE has all gone ahead with that but RE has more features like full fatch navigation on the go, call, and massage, music controls that are missing in Honda. Although these things won't play much role but can alter someone's buying decision. 


Tyres and Brakes

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

Tyres- Front- 90/90 21
           Rear- 140/80 R17
Brakes- Front- Single disc- 320mm
              Rear- 270mm

                     Rear- Linkage Type Monoshock

              Rear- 240mm
Suspensions- Front- Showa 41mm SFF-BP USD

Price

Royal Enfield Himalayan 450

The price of the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450 starts at 2.85 lakh and it goes all the way up to 2.98 lakh ex-showroom. 

It is present in a single variant but the price difference is because of the design, it comes in 5 designs or one can say 5 different paint schemes.

Honda NX500

Meanwhile, the price of this Honda is not even close to Himalayan 450.
This one is all available in a single variant which costs you around 5.90 lakh ex-showroom. 

So, the Honda NX500 is way more pricey than the RE Himalayan even the on-road price of the Himalayan is not going to touch the ex-showroom price of the NX500.

Info- Bikewale

Seriously speaking, the Honda NX500 is looking over price to me right now, I know that it offers more power and torque but the difference is not huge and it does not offer many stand-out features like RE does.

What? an electric Mustang no way! | Mustang Mach E | HighRPM

Ford Mustang Mach E an electric Mustang is a shock for enthusiast.....! We all know Ford Mustang the dream of many, the history in itself, the adrenaline pumper, the swagger, the fashion in its own, the trend former and the emotion, yes, that Mustang became SUV and on top of that to spoiler the name it became electric, seriously. That lion whose roar was a able to shake you from top bottom is now mute no.   Mustang Mach E is the sport electric SUV by Ford, although the name is Mustang but it is just for attention we all know that too at least I believe so, and if it is not still it won't have that character that Mustang used to have.

Does Aprilia RS 457 has that Aprilia thing? | Price, Features, Power, Engine | HighRPM

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and
