• Q. I am planning to buy a Royal Enfield classic gun metal grey, but the latest ABS version entices me to switch my selection a bit is it worth buying the ABS model in regards to it's suitability? Also when I inquired from Royal Enfield showroom some of my close ones who are working in the Royal Enfield, advise me not to go for classic model instead opt for bullet or Thunderbird as Classic model has a lot of maintenance issues like premature breakdowns etc. Please suggest me the correct option to go for.

    RE Classic 350 is a retro street bike and it is the highest selling model available in RE’s stable. It’s chrome-crowned headlight, teardrop fuel tank, round mirrors, analogue dials and single saddle seat are reminiscent of bikes from the 40’s. An option of a bolt-on rear seat is an added bonus. Also, its low seat height is apt for the average Indian consumer. A shorter wheelbase compared to the Standard variant and a low centre of gravity translate to better riding dynamics of the motorcycle. On the other hand, The Thunderbird’s massive 20 ltr fuel tank, low seating and forward-set foot controls are perfect for long-distance cruising, although the handlebars do take some time to get used to. The rear backrest provides enough support for the pillion rider, which can also be removed to mount luggage. The Thunderbird is the most feature-rich bike to come from Royal Enfield’s stable. Talking about RE Bullet, it is Standard Street bike and it isn’t feature rich instead it’s the minimalistic approach of the bike that attracts buyers. A simple 13.5-ltr fuel tank, a single elongated seat, chrome fenders that cover the majority of the wheel, skinny 19-inch tyres and a long chrome exhaust make up the design of the bike. To add, its round headlamp, analogue speedometer and 3D badging give it an elegant look. Its long elongated seat is the most comfortable of all the RE bikes, while the upright seating posture doesn’t strain your back in city traffic or on long hauls. Its skinny tyres may not aid in stability but they do offer sufficient grip when needed. The Standard models are essentially for buyers on a strict budget trying to hop onto the Royal Enfield train, unfazed by its lack of modern features. Ultimately, it boils down to your requirement. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

    It's a heavy bike, almost weight 200kg so for safety concern you must go for abs version. and yes gunmetal grey is facing innumerable problems. seat issue, speed issue, and classic do need regular maintenance. if you can go for Thunderbird or Thunderbird X
