    A Silent thread usually means a niggle free product, this is applicable across segments. I suspect you will be getting BS-IV compliant vehicle if you book now most probably, unless you are been offered/accept vehicles manufactured earlier this year.

    Regarding Bull or Dominor, though they both fall in the same CC segment they are totally different vehicles alltogether. Test drive both and pick the one which puts a smile on your face. I was in the same dilema as well and went for Thunderbird . Understand that Bulls need lots of attention for its own and that's what makes it unique and personal to everyone who owns it.

    I wonder why this thread is so silent.

    It should be the thread with most activity as most of the DIY and niggles are supposed to happen with RE, especially the bullet 500/350

    At present STD 500 has less problems compared to 350. Clocked 15k odo..
    No engine problems. Sweet spot at 80-90kmph..
    Bullet maintanance is comparatively higher than other bikes. 500 is reliable than other models. But properly service/maintain.....

    That's because its(Both Classic/Machismo 500) sales were way lower compared to the 350. Classic 350 was the trump card for RE. It's that simple really.

    Hi Everyone,

    ODO now nearing 5k. The 4th free service is due and need to do it in next 500kms.

    The only issue I have been facing from the day I brought was that the pipe fed to carburetor got loosened most of the times when you kick or press. The hose was replaced under warranty from dealership, expecting it to be permanent solution

    still there is some noise or tendency for the carb to jump out of its place on start. Expecting a service bill of 1k, will post the service details once I get it done.
    Regards,
    GinsB.

    Everyone suggests that this is suicidal as incase where the pressure is very high, it should come out as a safety measure.

    Safety measure? Sir imagine the carburetor popping out when youre Overtaking a truck at 80kph on a single lane highway with a car approaching you on the opposite side.

    Most motorcycles have metal clamps holding on to the rubber!
