  • Royal Enfield Bullet Classic is in Town!!

    Hi guys,

    We just saw Bullet Classic 350cc RED and Bullet Classic 500cc blue first hand.

    It was amazing. I had gone to book Machismo 500 but the sales guy argued that we don't have it anymore instead wait for Bullet Classic which he said will be releasing by Diwali (Don't trust him completely). Later I told him its due to be launched in 2010, then after enough argument he took me back side of the showroom where two classic was completely warped with white plastic sheet.

    When he unveiled the biks they really stand out from the rest of bullet series. The quality of make was of higher standards. It came with two split seat like machismo. The 500cc version had fuel injection and both fitted with the new engine.

    After lots of exciting snooping around we tried to dig the proposed price tags. After few calls here and there the sales guy said
    Classic 350cc - 1.6lac on road
    Classic 500cc - 2 lac.

    Now I have no idea should i even belive him, he also added that Machismo 500cc is gona stop production. Can someone confirm this or its just some sales talk ?

    Thanks
    Siddharth Menon

                    There is this news floating around in all forums that LB500 has been discontinued and the dealers are not taking new bookings for it. Well, hope for a Diwali Dhamaka launch of the Classic500

                        ya, the production and the booking of 500LB is stopped. As you said the 500 UCE is FI and the 350 is carb. But the Price factor is wrong..

                          ^^ If you have some insights about the price please do share .. I m saving.


                          I am really excited about the launch ... hope the sales guy is right about Diwali launch. :P

                          The price estimates were given by the sales guy... may be he wanted to put me off and go for Machismo or may be he was not sure. But i do agree he was not taking booking for LB500 when I 1st met him.

                          Would be going next week, hope this time I convince him for a pic

                            I got a mail from RE asking about my information and also states that "You will hear from us soon, so get ready to experience the exhilaration."

                            BTW , pics from noida showroom of the classic can be seen on t-bhp bullet classic thread.

                              Those are not Indian Showroom pics. I have seen the Indian version they come with rear seats.

                              Waiting for Diwali now.
