Q. Which is better between Bullet 350 and Bullet 500?
  • I would put my finger on the 350 as compared to the 500. a) 500 are much fewer in numbers, hence parts availability all the time in tier 2/3 towns is less.b) 500 is a fuel guzzler and not economical to ride.c) for a 500, compared to other 500 cc bikes, RE is very sluggish.
  • 500cc royal enfield is fuel injected not carburated and fuel injection need technically very well sound mechanic which royal enfield don't have and may not always available in local area so better go for a 350cc unless you need to go to ladakh with pillion.
  • The answer is 350 CC or 500 CC . Definitely RE 500 CC is best in power & Performance. If you compromise in mileage go for RE 500 CC.

Q. Is Interceptor better than Standard 500
  • RE INT 650 is twin cylinder engine & RE 500 is single cylinder. RE INT 650 is outstanding is performance . Both frames area different .Plus RE 500 is not best selling model it has injector problems lots of engine clattering noise. RE 500 has very Poor resale value .Now RE 500 is discontinued
  • Of course, but is costlier too. And its not a thumper as its a twin cylinder. There are too many comparison factors.1. Power - Way powerful than the classic. 2. Cylinders - Twins are always the best 3. Mileage - 650 will drink more ofcourse 4. Maintenance - Twins will add here a little compared to the singles. 5. Riding posture - Would be a bit forward inclined compared to the classic. But the bike is more manuverable.650 is a better bike out of the two when engineering is concerned. Personal choice would differ basis personal interests.
  • Definitely Yes

    For city rides, owing to its weight, the bike is good only if you can handle it. Still, grabbing the clutch occasionally can give you a sore wrist if you are stuck in a long traffic. Cruising speed is about 80-90 kmph and can go up to 115 kmph without much discomfort. Although, mileage has a drastic reduction above speeds of 90. The area in which it shines is on long rides. Even riding 1000 kms with just occasional pit stops I have never had any back pain whereas I have felt it for RE Classic variant. The weight of close to 200 kmph is an assurance on great highways, you feel stable even at high speeds. But the weight becomes an issue while we are in cities and when we have to make you turns in tight spaces. So city rides- no, long highway rides, mountain rides - yeah. The torque can eat up steep slopes without any apparent effort. So for a close to 2 lakh price I am very happy with this bike although I knew what I was getting into and I wanted it.

    Bike is overall a good package but when it comes to its build quality it f***s your pocket as of now i have driven it 18000kms but i have changed my sprocket 4 times and whole chain set 1 time. Talking about the brakes it sucks, we only have a option of droping the gear to control the bike also the fuel pump in efi is going to give you the problem as it is made of plastic and comes in outer lower side of tank, it cracks then whole fuel leaks and the only option is to replace the pump which cost ₹9800 in the company. Seriously man pump made of plastic will going to cost you ₹10600 after the fitment. Rest vibrations and lot other issues you are going to face. Its better to drive this bike in the economy speed for a longer use rest the issues will raise quickly if you overuse it. Overall it gives you feel. So, these are the major issues which i have faced with my bull but minor issues are coming in between even at unexpected moment.

    it is an absolute comfy bike suggested for touring. You may not like it too much for the city ride.However, its not bead either for the daily commute. Maintenance is a bit on the higher side if you compare it with bike with similar pricing.
