Royal Enfield Classic 500 Latest Updates

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Classic 500

Q. Planning to sell my one year old classic 500 to buy the jawa. Royal enfield quality is seriously poor got lot of maintainance issues and i use for daily work commute. Considering it makes bhp like C500 and torque is like C350. Will it be a good choice to get a Jawa after using C500? And also service centres and spares cost are concern for the jawa. - 42 - 42 - 42?
  • We can't give any verdict here about the ride quality of Jawa as the bike hasn't been launched yet. Although, we can expect good performance by Jawa bikes in market based on its history. Moreover, Jawa dealership will be available in the market after 5th of December this year.

  • Fully agree , until unless a product spends minimum 6 months in the market a clear cut verdict can’t be given.What drawback l presently see with Jawa is lack of kick start along with self start. At times when you have issue with Self/alternator/battery , kick is always handy.
  • Initially you may find some uncomfort, but you will get used it, Jawa 42 is the best for modern look and performance

    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 Mojo vs KTM 200 Duke vs Honda CBR 250R vs Royal Enfield Classic 500: Spec Comparison

    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.
