Zontes 350T ADV, Track Test

By Dhruv Paliwal | on November 14, 2022 Follow us on Autox Google News

Zontes is a brand that’s come out of nowhere and has straightaway jumped into the 300-400cc premium segment. But let’s forget about its origins for a moment. I want to talk about the X-factor of this motorcycle because the 350T ADV definitely attracts your attention. While I am not a fan of the design, which is a personal preference, there is no denying that it has a massive road presence. With its crash guards and tall stance, this 350cc motorcycle looked like a 600cc bike in the sea of ADVs we had on the track. Now, that’s definitely a plus point for any motorcycle owner.

Apart from all the electronic gadgetry that we were already expecting because of the 350R, the Zontes 350T ADV goes a step further with its electronically adjustable windscreen. Quite a feature at this price! That said, it’s not easy to stand and ride the 350T. The tank is sculpted in such a fashion that your knees hold on to it, but that same shape gets in the way when you try and stand up. The Zontes 350T ADV doesn’t have dedicated off-road tyres, and they slip and slide a bit – not enough to outrightly scare you but also not enough to have fun. You are always on the edge, about to fall off the motorcycle when you are tip-toeing your way through an off-road zone, which tells you all you need to know about it. The Zontes 350T ADV is a motorcycle that will be good for touring at a relaxed pace.

We would, however, have liked it a lot more if it didn’t have vibrations throughout its rev range, for then it would have been a better experience to try to squeeze every drop of performance out of this package.
