Engine Specifications:

The Hero Mavrick 440 is the second motorcycle based on the 440 platform after the Harley-Davidson X440. In this spec comparison, not only do the Mavrick 440 and the X440 have the highest displacement, but also register the maximum power. While the X440 is tuned to produce 2 Nm more torque compared to the Mavrick 440, the folks at Hero claim that the torque graph on the Mavrick is set to deliver 90 per cent of the torque as low as 2,000 rpm. Coming in third at producing max power is the Jawa 350 followed by the Honda H’ness CB350 and then the Royal Enfield Classic 350.

All the other motorcycles feature a long-stroke construction and are air-cooled (Mavrick 440 and X440 are additionally oil-cooled). In terms of the gearbox, barring the Classic 350 which has a 5-speed gearbox, the remaining four motorcycles come with a 6-speed gearbox equipped with a slip and assist clutch.

Chassis And Cycle Parts:

In this department, the Honda is the lightest here, and it also sports the largest fuel tank. While the former aids in easy manoeuvring the latter translates to fewer stops to fuel stations between tank ups. However, the H’ness CB350 has the lowest ground clearance, so one needs to be careful when going over speed bumps and potholes. The Royal Enfield is the heaviest here, which is simply due to the amount of metal it uses for its body parts and components. In terms of seat height, the Jawa 350 is the most accessible one, while the Classic 350 and the X440 share the same saddle height.

Coming to the suspension, the Harley-Davidson X440 packs the most sophisticated hardware featuring a KYB USD fork setup and gas-charged twin shock absorbers. Next is the Mavrick 440 which sports a telescopic fork unit but has the thickest fork tubes among the other three motorcycles.
