    I can push to influence her to get the Bullet, but her mind is set on the classic, so that is that.

    She should buy apache 160 4v abs, it's perfect for her.

    Mind is set on a RE, if not the classic then the std would be a way to go.

    Royal Enfield have launched scale models for the Classic model. Currently, only C500's is available and not C350's. If anyone's interested, here's the link to it --> https://store.royalenfield.com/collections/scale-model . The models are 1:12 in scale.
    Honda Dio [2010 - 2011]
    Yamaha YZF R15 V2 [2011 - Present]
    Yamaha YZF R3 [2016 - Present]

    What's next? :)

    Red face Re: Royal Enfield Classic 350 Owner's Review and Experiences

    With BS6 regulation fever among manufacturers kicking in,Re is working on new variants of its classic series
    We've been getting a number of spy shots on the new classic
    I am keenly following it in,as I want to buy it to replace my bs4 non abs classic.
    The details from the pictures until now,Say that the frame might be a double cradle borrowed from conti 535
    There is speculation that the 350/500 variants might be scrapped for a single one
    The engine looks oddly similar to the unit in Himalayan.
    The gearbox too looks like the one in 650 twins.

    So,Re has picked up some bits from its warehouse and is putting them together as a new bike again.
    The last one sighted is rumored to be the near production version of the bike
    If it is true,Then I think we might expect it to be out for sale by the end of this year
    Hope it ends up well as a an able mile muncher
