Q. Which is better between Royal Enfield Classic 500 and Jawa Motorcycles Perak?
  • It would be too early to give any verdict as Jawa Perak is not launched that. So, we would recommend you to wait for its launch so that we can give you the fruitful comparison between Royal Enfield Classic 500 and Jawa Motorcycles Perak
Q. How can we differentiate Perak and Desert storm?
  • Both the bikes are different. The Classic 500 comes with a fuel injected 499cc engine which offers superior performance to the Classic 350 in the form of 27.2 bhp of power and 41.3 Nm of torque. For riders looking to buy a retro-modern motorcycle, the Classic 500 is an ideal choice as it has the go match the show and is reasonably capable of doing highway runs as well. On the other hand, the Perak is a bobber based on the Jawa. Although the front half is identical to the Jawa, the rear gets a completely different design. This single seater bike has a unique matte black paint job with blacked out front forks, spoke wheels, frame, engine and exhaust. It gets a contrasting tan seat too. There are changes to the underpinnings as well. The Perak gets a longer rear swingarm and in place of twin rear shock absorbers, it gets a hidden monoshock. The wheels too are stickier Pirelli’s instead of MRF rubber. Braking receives a boost in the form of a rear disc brake that replaces the drum unit seen on the other two bikes. It gets dual channel ABS as well. Perak will be powered by a liquid-cooled single-cylinder motor which is a larger 334cc unit. It also makes more power: 30.4PS and 31Nm of torque transmitted to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox.
Q. Which is better classic 350 or classic 500 in performance?
  • M having stealth black 500 and its such a special feeling to own the RE which cannot be expressed in words but when it comes to 350 or 500 it is totally on your usage as the first thing is mileage which does not differ much as i m getting around 30+ and in 350 it is around 35 but when it comes to driving for sure you feel d diff the 500 variant is much more plesant in driving. so in my opinion just go for 500 but if you are luking price wise u can choose 350 bcz in looks both are same if you are not choosing the 500 only colour variant
  • Difference will be on the inflow of the fuel . 350 is with carburetor and 500 is with fuel injection. 500 got more pickup but lack in fuel efficiency as compare to the counterpart.i' ve rode my classic 350 for almost 5 years, most of the times in the himalayan region.i found no issue regarding the capacity of the engine.on my personal level i would have picked himalayan for classic 500. decision is yours brother. thanks and keep thumping
  • Having owned the Classic 500 I can tell you that it is not worth the extra money. The performance upgrade is not noticeable. I would suggest you gofor the Classic 350 . But the one thing I noticed is the exclusivity of the Classic 500. As far as I know there are only around 10 in my city out of the 1000s of bullets and that really is something special, so if you are looking for exclusivity then go for the 500.
