Royal Enfield will bid farewell to the Classic 500 with a special limited edition paint scheme. Called the Tribute Black Limited Option, this scheme features a dual-tone gloss black/matte black design, and will be produced on order in limited numbers. Those interested will have to log onto the manufacturer's website on February 10 between 2pm and 5pm.
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. The abundant pulling power is perhaps one of the unique selling propositions of this bike. The Classic 500 also comes with a low fuel light, apart from engine-check light, making it useful for long rides. The Classic also comes in attractive paint schemes like the Desert Storm, Squadron Blue, Chrome, etc giving the motorcycle a distinct personality.

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.
BIKE IS GOOD TILL THERE IS NO TROUBLE BUT THE MOMENT YOU HAVE AN ISSUE, MOST OFTEN THE DEALERS ARE NOT ABLE TO ADDRESS IT IN ONE GO AND REQUIRES MULTIPLE VISITS WITH BELOW AVERAGE EXPERTISE LEVEL. COMPANY RESPONSE TO CUSTOMER CARE IS POOR AND MOST OFTEN THEY ARE IN SUPPORT OF THERE DEALERS ONLY AND YOU ARE MADE TO GO BACK TO THE DEALER ONLY IN SPITE OF REPEATED REQUESTS FOR A CHANGE OF DEALER DUE TO POOR WORKMANSHIP AND EXPERTISE. THE BIKE IS CERTAINLY NOT TROUBLE FREE WITH HIGH VIBRATION LEVELS BUT IT MORE THAN COMPENSATES FOR WITH HIGH TORQUE AND GOOD ACCELERATION.
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.
Riding experience with the bike so far has been very good . Its a good mile muncher with lots of reserve power for hiway overtaking manoeuvres. The weak area is service support. service support is at Manjunatha Garage Banaswadi , Bangalore . But in all service centres always noticed that mechanics don’t mount split pins . Mechanics are not aware of the importance of split pins and self locking nuts . Mileage ranges between 20 and 30 kms, deprnding in riding habits . Stick to 90 kms speed , except while overtaking , and highway mileage improves dramatically ..
Mahindra has finally launched the much awaited Mojo. But to makes space for itself in the market, the Mojo will have to hold its own against some stiff competition like the KTM 200 Duke, Honda CBR250R, and the Royal Enfield Classic 500.
Here's the problem you see... I love telling tales, not tall ones but definitely long ones, and a couple of pages are hardly enough to narrate the entire mind blowing experience that was Royal Enfield's Tour of Rann of Kutch. Even narrowing down to a few memorable experiences is going to be a tough act, but here goes anyway.
54 years to the day the original Bullet rolled out from Redditch, Royal Enfield now has an all-new single cylinder motorcycle. Adil Jal Darukhanawala needed to not just have his eyes checked but also got a reality dose after an extensive test aboard this latest big bore machine.
