Comparison – Royal Enfield Himalayan vs Mahindra Mojo vs Honda CBR 250R
It might have taken a long period of time, but finally, Royal Enfield has come up with an all new generation motorcycle which completely deciphers the pre-conceived notions attached with Royal Enfields. With the Himalayan, Royal Enfield has carved out a very niche segment of motorcycles, which is indeed a special and exclusive one, yet is the most practical one for the Indian conditions – that of adventure tourers. The segment which was restricted only in the higher end segments with Triumph and BMW Motorrad being the only major players has now become much more accessible, affordable and practical with the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
The Royal Enfield Himalayan is a much more refined and practical motorcycle to live with when compared to the other Royal Enfield motorcycles. It is a motorcycle which promises a lot with its ability of off-road as well as long distance touring, without compromising on the daily duties as well. It indeed is a one-of-its-kind motorcycles currently in the price band to which it belongs right now, but then, some of its attributes are being shared with some other motorcycles. Here in question is the ability of touring, which are already being accomplished by two other motorcycles in its class (apart from the entire Royal Enfield lineup, which will not be discussed here) – Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R.
Last year, Mahindra did finally put up an end to all the anticipations and doubts revolving around its Mojo project, by launching the much awaited Mojo, which has received rave reviews for its mechanical prowess and long distance touring abilities. Not to forget the Honda CBR 250R, the only fully faired sports tourer in this price, which was the first motorcycle in this price bracket to trigger the want of touring motorcycles with its punchy and refined engine as well as comfortable ergonomics.
In this story, we are going to compare the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Mahindra Mojo and CBR 250R, and find out which motorcycle emerges out to be the best of all the worlds, with the touring abilities being the topmost priority. Here we go:-

The Indian two wheeler market is one interesting platform to study and analyze. There are segment best sellers on one hand, and segment duds on the other. And between them lie some bikes – bikes which have some very significant strengths in their favor and are equal or better, if not weaker, than the segment best sellers in terms of value, figures and specifications.
Despite matching shoulder to shoulder with the segment best sellers, this class of bikes are almost unheard names now in their respective segments. In this way, they have been left as underrated machines. There are several reasons for these bikes to be classified as underrated – while some of them have been overshadowed by either their rivals or their own stable mates, or their pricing strategy have been poor.

There are some motorcycles in the Indian market which have went on writing success stories for being pioneers in some aspect or the other. While a majority of these bikes have departed in the history books, some continue to glorify the market even today.
But there exist a class of motorcycles, which after having a successful run in the market, were shown the doors by their manufacturer. But sooner or later, the manufacturer of such bikes realized that those very products still had the potential to give the established players of the market a run for their money. Which is why, these bikes were brought back or relaunched in the Indian market.
But it has to be known that the Indian two wheeler market is not too forgiving like most of the other international markets. Once an image of a product is imprinted on the minds of the consumers here, it is very hard for the companies to revive that image, even if it’s on a positive note, so as to improve it even further. This is the reason why the respective manufacturers took the opportunity of relaunching such bikes with an all new name.
Now this class if bikes usually are the same models which were discontinued by their makers. But in most of the cases, the companies have used the opportunity to ralaunch the bikes with a couple of noticeable changes, apart from a different name. We bring to you a list of ten such bikes, which were discontinued by their parent makers for some reasons, but were brought back in the wake of some amount of customer interest still alive for them. Some of them were hits, while others proved to be duds even after being excellent packages. Here’s the list of those ten bikes.
Are you from Bengaluru?
Do you own a Royal Enfield, Harley Davidson, Ducati or Trumph made premium bike?
Do you like to go out on road trips on your loved two wheeler often?
Well, if your answer is “Yes.” for all the above questions, then stay prepared to face a fine or even you bike may get seized, as authorities has marked these bikes for noise pollution.
According to Bengaluru city traffic regulations permissible decibel limit for bikes are 80, whereas almost every super bike produces nearly 200 decibels. If these bikes are modified to reduce the noise, then it directly affects the performance, and chances of broken silencers get high, which takes a few more bucks to repair.
Every other Bengaluru bikers are annoyed with these incidents happening on regular basis. Authorities are throwing fines on the first instance, and seizing the bike second time, while they themselves allowed the companies to sell these bikes in the city, and this is what miffing the young bikers most. Although the transport authority does not care at all about this fact, as the Joint Commissioner of Transport (Enforcement) Narendra Holkar has said, "We will intensify the drives after the civic polls. Issuing notices to bike manufacturers is not on our agenda, because we do not have time for legal battles. We have a strong weapon called enforcement (and) that is enough." Clearly the authority has only one intention, which forcibly implementing the fine and seizing bikes instead of barring the companies sell those particular bikes in the city. That is some kind is cheap duplicity as the bikers are claiming.
