Both same bikes. if have more agressive style of riding go with classic. if more refined riding style go with Electra. I ride at 70 to 80 kmph every day I feel classic more stable with 110section rear tyre than the thin one. in Electra

I have been using STD 350 for 8 months now and its terrible ! MY FIRST 6 MONTHS WHERE OKAY OKAY ! BUT AFTER THAT I STARTED TO HEAVY AND LOUD TAPET NOISE (TAK TAK) WHILE ON LOW RPM AND HIGH RPM ! I HAD TO INCREASE MY IDLE RPM SO TO COME OVER AND IT DROPPED MY MILEAGE ALL THE WAY FROM 42-46 TO 30-34 2 ND THE BREAKS ITS ABSOLUTELY SH*T , TYRES GET LOCKED SOO EASILY AND I HAVE FALLEN ALMOST 4 TIMES IN 8 MONTHS. 3RD THE KICKER ! IT WAS COMFY FOR 6 MONTH AFTER THAT I HAD TO KICK NEARLY 10-20. TIMES EACH TIME TO START THE VEHICLE ! I AM HAVING SERIOUS LEG ACHES WHILE ON. BED. 4TH I KNOW IT SOUNDS WIERD BUT THE VIBERATIONS , I HAD TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE DOCTER FOR MY PAIN IN THE BALLS DUE TO HEAVY VIBERATIONS ! TRUST ME IT IS REAL , I WOULDN'T SUGGEST YOU TO GO WITH A 1.36 LAKH WORTH STEAL CRAP !
Classic 350 is a better option if you are ready to put some cash . Bullet standard comes at a lower price than the classic so it has its pros and cons accordingly. Bullet standard comes with slim tyres , single seat and the older look of the bullet.where as the classic 350 comes much good looking due to its split seats and bigger tyres for better road grip . Even the handle and seating comfort differs in both .
Both are different in there own respective style. Classic has switch start, you can remove the Pillion seat as well, in case if you want to enjoy that single ride feeling, on the other hand standard is kick start which creates problems in city, pillion seat can not be removed. So I would suggest go for the test ride for both and than select
I am 6 feet tall and near 96 kg. I have used. cb Shine for 9 years now and it is good bike for City use and travelling 70-80 km range without any troubles. Yes it struggles to carry the weight of 2 heavy passengers above 70KmpH but it's a good bike for slow rides of around 60KmpH . Now coming to Bullets, I have recently bought a Standard 350 BS6 and have to say it is a very good bike. Enough power and torque to carry me and my friend who is even heavier than me about 100 kg. Plus riding alone the bike feels effortless in carrying a near 100kg person. And the riding position is also very relaxing, you can easily adjust on the long seat, sadly it is not possible in Classic Split seat.
No bike is designed for 6 footers. If you go for bullet get the ones with uncut seats like the standard models, there you will have the option of pushing back to adjust your posture. Otherwise go for the cruisers where you spread your legs forward like Harley or Triumph.
First of all Remove CB Shine and Saluto from the list. According to your physique Royal Enfield will perfectly suite you you can opt for Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Standard or Thunderbird 350 as per your priorities.
I have standard Bullet 350cc (1997 model) and its gear box system is different from engine where as new engines have combine gear box and engine....in new engines if you have any problem in gearbox you have to open whole engine whereas in old engine there is a separate gearbox attached with the engine u don't need to touch the engine.....if you want to buy old model you can contact me on +91 985****329
The gear system on royal Enfield is similar to other sports bike on market. For first gear you push the lever downward then up comes Nutral and Up 2,3,4 and so on to fifth. Depending upon your comfort in bike you can choose between Standard and Cassic. Standard is a bit high then Classic. Classic gives you a low ride experience comparing to most of the Royal Enfield's.
The Gear box in Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is a slick shifting one on my personal bike........The pattern is:-1st gear is up and rest four gears down.. neutral is between 1st and 2nd gear... Bullet is a very good bike indeed........If you want real ROYAL ENFIELD feeling then you should definitely go for the Bullet.......hope your queries are solved...😄😄
