But if he wants a true classic that he can ride/love and cherish for a lifetime then Bullet is the answer. BTW the new A350 engines are quite hassle free except for a niggling sound from the tappets.

    Default got the 350

    Hi Guys,

    Yesterday the RE 350 S Class has been bought. It was a head and heart game between Uni and RE and i guess my friend went with the heart. As of now i have not seen the bike in flesh due to my schedule but will surely post some snaps over here once i see the bike.

    Thank you yamahatrooper, desideep, jd666 and buvanrajd for your suggestions and answering my queries time to time.

    I am not much knowledgeable about the RE's but one thing sure, you can easily fit a pillion seat on Classic 350. And hearsay, both are comfortable to ride and the TBTS scores one notch higher.

    Mileage owners help him.

    And you are saying you want a bike asap, have you already booked the bike? Usually RE's are associated with one hell of a waiting period

    Bajaj Pulsar 180 - dts i |
    Bajaj CT 100

    Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.

    It was not that far on the map.

    Ohhh... so much hurry... Being a wannabe-RE-owner, you must improve your patience skills first...

    As for your query goes, Fuel consumption of both, classic 350 & TBTS 350, is the same as both share the same heart i.e. same engine... (it'll be 40+ kmpl)
    Comforts? TBTS 350 wins the trophy here due to sitting posture...

    Regarding TBTS 500, can't say anything as it hasn't hit the road yet...
    Originality is the art of hiding your sources...
