Q. For city ride which variant should I opt in Royal Enfield 500 - Classic 500?
| 1 year ago
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.

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.
Q. What is the average maintenance cost. Is it very high? Does it vibrate a lot even below 100 km - Classic 500?
| 6 months ago
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.

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.

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.
