Roadster, the most affordable of the trio is also a very interesting offering. Especially when you consider that it is the most direct rival to the likes of Royal Enfield bikes such as Classic 350 or the Meteor 350, which ever you consider. 

As the name suggests, easy to reach bars, upright riding geometry and mid-placed pegs, contribute to its comfort/road-oriented ergonomics that most riders seek. Here's a quick run down on its tech specs and pricing when compared to rivals such as the Honda H'Ness and the Royal Enfield Meteor 350.

Coming to the Meteor, it gets a 349 cc, Single-cylinder, 4-stroke, SOHC, Air-cooled which delivers the lowest 20.5 PS and 27 Nm. While both H'ness and Meteor get a 5-speed transmission, the Roadster sport a 6-speed unit.
