Q. Which one is best to buy classic 350 or classic 500. I am looking for better performance, average & long terms with comfort as I am traveling with family.
  • Nothing comes close to the Classic range from the Retro Street family when it comes to proper vintage-style motorcycles with a quintessential British charm while being affordable for a majority of Indian two-wheeler buyers. This is one of the reasons why it single-handedly became the highest-selling model from the brand’s stable. This motorcycle comes in two engine variants with multiple colour choices. The Classic 350 is apt for budget-conscious riders who want a distinct old-school pizzaz in their motorcycle. However, if you crave for more torque and are not worried about the relatively higher fuel bills than the 350, go for the Classic 500 instead. It also offers the advantage of fuel injection, which helps in providing crisper throttle response and easier cold-starts.

  • Classic 500 comes with fuel injection system which gives better throttle response , and 500 has slightly better torque and power output . if you are buying this for long distance touring 500 would be a better option as it can cruise comfortably at 90 to 100 kmph on the downside though 500 is less fuel efficient and maintenance costs are higher when compared to 350. if you are looking form a more pocket friendly bike for city as well as for shorter rides then 350 would be the choice : By Arvind | 5 months ago
  • RE STD 350 has ABS , Kick start & Black color only. RE 350 Electra has Self start , ABS & Many color & Chrome . Rest more less same .Go for RE 350 Electra ABS or RE STD 350 ABS. : By Uppiliappan | 2 months ago

Q. For city ride which variant should I opt in Royal Enfield 500 - Classic 500?
  • When it comes to power and performance, all the variants of Royal Enfield 500 are same. But if you mind the look, style and comfort you got many options. RE Thunderstorm 500 is basically for leisure Touring purpose and any classic 500 series do the dual job of city ride and leisure cruise. Go for any Classic 500 if you will spend your maximum ride in the city. DesertStorm, Squardron Blue, Stealth Black and Classic Chrome are the range to chose from and they all differs on look and color. : By Sandip | 1 year ago
  • Both are the same bikes under the different names, slightly different body designs and paint schemes.You can go for either one based on your preference of paint schemes. : By Sidharth | 1 month ago
  • There are two variants classic and thunderbird, now it depends on you how much u are comfortable to ride between these variants.. thunderbird is cruise ride and u don't have to customize, where as classic you need a bit seat alteration and handle bar change. mileage also not much difference. choice is yours. : By Ghanshyam | 1 year ago

Q. What is the average maintenance cost. Is it very high? Does it vibrate a lot even below 100 km - Classic 500?
  • Avarage maintainance is like 1500 to 2000. To me it is a bullet and it should vibrate, but your driving style like gradual accilaration and decilaration. Without straining the engine u will feel less vibrations. The sweet spot is cruzing at 80 90 where u feel like u r sitting on a sofa. It vibrates both below and above this speed. The vibrations go out of control when u go beyond 110. About the minalge u get 30kmpl +/ - 5. And if u are lucky u can squeeze 40kmpl out of it. In my case i have got 18kmpl and even 48kmpl. It depends upon the riding. : By Kiran | 6 months ago
  • Average maintenance cost is approx 1500/- per service including oil change. But if you want to use it for daily commuting purpose, then you should factor in the fuel economy which is around 25-27 kmpl. Vibrations will be there even at low revs. I am facing major problems in the rear brakes as in my bike it's a drum set up but in the current models they are providing disc brakes in the rear wheel with ABS. : By Deepesh | 7 months ago
  • It vibrates quite a lot but improves with proper run-in. Carberry makes a crank shaft bearing plate that helps reduce vibration also. Search for "Carberry Vibration Reduction Plate - Hitchcocks Motorcycles" There are two crank bearings on the left and 1 on the right side as stock in the 500. The plate adds an additional bearing to the right side. : By Timothy | 6 months ago
