Good motorcycle.Have done multiple trips to ladakh and other places on this motorcycle and have cherished the experience.
All good excellent condition, First owner, 35000 kms covered, Well maintained, Timely serviced, 350 cc, Black colour
Best for long rides, Worst in city traffic.Maintenance cost is very high.Performance according to price range not very good.
Very good cruiser bike.Setting poacher comfort no pain but vibration to much long ride over all good.

This is a critical review . This review involves about the bike, rider and the mechanic.The Bike is good. It is excellent and easy to handle even in city traffic. The Showroom Aadith Motors Mysore was not much responsive and the service manager had shown utter irresponsibility during the delivery. The CLAMP BETWEEN CARBURETOR AND ENGINE WAS MISSING. Which would have got separated during the ride. No wash, No Polish, not even a word SORRY. Remember you have paid Rs 1,93,000 . There was a scratch on saree guard. I refused the delivery and next week the showroom delivered my bike with solving the above issue. The speedometer console fills with moisture during rainfall and it affects the display and ultimately you loose your display. I got it replaced within 4 months. Now i have a plastic cap over it which is transparent and available on Amazon.The Royal Enfield which has Liquid Gun Semi Synthetic Oil is the worst one which I have seen. It turns black within 500 kms if you are not a regular rider and turns black for 3000 kms . The company says to use it upto 6 months or 10000 kms. But ultimately it is your engine which will get spoiled. Hence change the oil for 3000 kms or 6 months. Post warranty of 2 years pls go for MOTUL Synthetic Engine Oil. It is always better. I have opted for Extended warranty as there is no local mechanic who deals with enfield at my place and unfortunately i am dependent on these chaps. Some tips:-Clean and Lubricate the chain once in 300 kmsDry wash as for as possible. If it is really necessary then go for a detailed washBetter to go for vinyl coating for tanks. 3M is better in that case . This avoids the scratches. It is worth too. To be frank I really love the bike. Not even a single day I had an issue on road. It wont VIBRATE. It is a beast. Annually if you have a showroom maintenance including chain l**e for 300 kms you will have to spend around 6000. If you use synthetic oil then you get the service done based on kms not based on time.
All good but sometimes i felt like on the name of royal enfield / bullet ( company charge unnecessarily extra like foot stand all other company charge 50 each and here at re showroom it cost 650 plus taxes same with side indicators, Fuel tank stickers.Upto double is fine but 7 times high is not justified i think.Otherwise iam very happy with its look and performance.Secondly it's parts are not available easily and even price for parts is also very very hard to find online.Another important thing is in today's online life there is no parts available online.And and and one more issue is it's ( thunderbird's) speedometer is very very delicate.Mine got broken 7 times in past 5-6 years sometimes i bought it from showroom and sometimes i bought it's frame from jama masjid and once i bought duplicate one from karol bagh.It's an expensive bike for most of indian so it's maintenance guide should be available online on its website.Please don't take my feedback as negative only as i love my re thunderbird and trust me iam very happy with my black beauty but i wrote only critics because that can be improved without any extra effort and cost and the same will be very helpful for customers.That is all from my side.A true royal enfielder vijay singh dhinghsari.
FloksI had been riding this bike since I purchased and it"s good for longer trip especially to the hills, I always enjoy going on this for longer trips and main advantage of this bike is its sitting posture which will reduce your back pain comparing other bikes.It"s extra large fuel tank will give you 650 to 700 kms continuous ride without refueling. Its weight of 190 kgs will give you firm grip even if you will exceed above 100 speed only thing is you have to modify your handle bar a little bit to reduce the vibration but I am ok with it I want to feel like I am riding on a wild bull and make sure your bike is maintained well every 3 months interval. Always know this every bike has pros & cons ,my suggestions to TB 350 Lovers please don"t get carried away by few negative feeds.It"s totally upon you how you will deal with this machine and see how it will respond.Every bike is made for their own purposes and TB-350 is Cruising Bike and definitely it"s not made for sporting.
Daily commute- Comfortable,Easy to maneuver, good turning radius, All goodies are packed inside even for daily commuteTouring-Tank range is huge as it has 21litres fuel tank.Engine doesn"t heat up,can tour all day long widout any issues.Great provision for saddle just pull out a cable remove pillion seat and you are ready to go.Pillion seat comfort is kind of good.Only issue is the seat which bit hardPerformance-Well it"s a air cooled,long stroke,cruiser. Cruiser has a good midrange and this bike has it. Take a corner and it will surprise you until you are scraping footpegs all over. Vibration will start creeping at speeds over 90 kmph but if you opt for semi synthetic oil or synthetic man it makes a hell lot of difference.Maintenance-Easy on pocket,You have to replace speedometer bracket atleast once.Fuel gauge is just for decorative purpose never depend on it.Suggestions-Try Semi-synthetic, Synthetic oils, never push it for offroading
bike is nice for a nostalgic value, performance wise its not up there, too heavy and breaking isn't great even with the disk breaks. acceleration and mileage both take a hit due to its weight. The bike is not comfortable at all for long trips with its sitting and leg positions. Its definitely not a cruiser. It gives bad back pains during long rides. Most frustrating with it is the engine noise. even after being so expensive , the engine noise makes it less appealing. And also less refined.
