In terms of looks, the Triumph Speed 400 comes with a street-cruiser look which is inspired from the bigger and more powerful Triumph Speed 900. At the front, it gets round headlamp and round rearview mirrors that gives it a retro look, but it does have some modern touch.

Talking about the Harley Davidson X440, so the main goal of Hero was to create a versatile roadster rather than the typical Harley-style cruiser, and this intention is evident in the design of the motorcycle. The X440 takes design inspiration from the classic Harley XR1200, featuring broad shoulders, wide handlebars, and robust lines. While the large fuel tank and clean side panels add to its aesthetic appeal, the tail section appears somewhat awkward, making it a bike that looks better from certain angles than others.

As for the features, the X440 is equipped with a single pod TFT console for instrumentation, which is a standard feature across the entire range. However, the top model offers additional connectivity options. The headlamp is a powerful full LED unit that stands out, and it includes a light sensor that automatically activates the main beam when the ambient light decreases. This is a notable feature, as it is the first of its kind at this price point in the motorcycle market.
