Royal Enfield Classic 500 Latest Updates

Royal Enfield has updated the Classic 500 with a dual-channel ABS unit. It is now been priced at Rs 2.02 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), a hike of around Rs 15,000 compared to the non-ABS variant. Other than the safety feature, the motorcycle remains unchanged both mechanically and cosmetically.

The Classic 500 is the 350’s bigger brother which comes with the added advantage of a bigger, 499cc fuel-injected mill producing a massive 41.3 Nm of torque at 4000rpm.

Stylish design and thump is awesome. But this bike vibrates too much after 80 km/ hr. Even i use motul 5100 still its uncomfortable. Build quality of bike is going down day by day. Welding joints are not cleaned properly and directly painted. Chrome parts get rusty. To get optimum comfort one need to change handle bar seats. RE service centre charge you unnecessary for unwanted spare parts. I am using this bike for past 5 years and mileage never goes below 32kmpl. On bombay goa road via pune i got 43kmpl average. It depends on your riding style. If you run always above 100 then petrol consumption is rapid. Maintain speen between 60 to 90 on fifth gear. Its awesome bike on of my best buy but company is just making money by selling cheap quality product.

The quality of the vehicle is very cheap. The vibration from the engine makes it really uncomfortable to1drive. Infact, i am planning on selling the bike which has just run 6500kms. The maintenance cost is too high.The fuel pump is a failure for bs4 models and frequently gets damaged on its own. But, for that replacement,i should pay around 9000rs. I had already paid 2 times. So, i am planning on selling the bike. I waited around 41years for getting the desert storm. But, all the dreams that i had during the 4 years has shattered now. This is the last time i am buying an RE.

I bought the bike in 2014. Had good experience till 2016. Thereafter i started to come across problems one by one. Authorised service centre is pathetic with incompetent and untrained staff having poor understanding of the bike and defect. Off late i have been facing the problem of starting the engine. They recommended to change the battery so i did. After sometime, they asked to change a lot of components and now ECU unit. Still problem persist. Royal enfield has failed to provide satisfactory solution and i am living with the problem. Planning to dump the bike.
