    Yes Sir! And thank you very much. First time owning a RE and I am exited for the experience.


    A small issue though, my bike idling barely around .5 and it is shutting down when I stop at signals. Could there be any other reason?
    I'm going to the showroom tomorrow to complete the paperwork, will have it checked out.

    Dear everyone,
    This is my first post on this forum.. My dad used to ride Java 1960 model.. So I also had the fortune to ride that bike.. My own bike was a Yamaha but now I am done with these 125/150 cc bikes and planning to buy TB 350.. My only query is- ' Is it worth the money'
    Because if not this bike I am going back to cars.. By the way I m 36 year old and height is 6 2' ( 87kg).
    I need to bike for daily commuting and some long rides.. Should I go for it?? Please help.. Thanks in advance.

    Thats bad Bro. Don't let your idling be as low as 500rpm. It will starve the head of oil as there will not be enough pressure for the oil to circulate properly to the head. Normally the showroom guys have it set at around 1200rpm I guess. I have mine set at around 800-900rpm. There is an adjustment screw below near the carburetor on the left side where the accelerator cable turns the butterfly. Just turn the screw clockwise and you will see the rpm increasing. You can play around with it to match your taste.

    Hi Bro.
    Welcome to XBHP. Ok to answer your questions, I have a few points for you as I have both kinds of machines The Lazy Cool Thunderbird and The Angry Screaming KTM RC390. it all depends on your riding style and taste. The Thunderbird 350 is definitely worth the price. It is a nice touring machine. I have been on a few long rides 500km+ per day and on the highway it is pretty relaxed. The bike is comfortable at speeds of 80-90kmph. I have touched around 120 on my 2011 TBTS a few times but anything after 100kmph becomes really scary due to the vibrations and a very insecure feel. For daily use it is ok, but after I bought the KTM, I almost stopped using my TBTS as the KTM is much faster and basically you get from point A to B much faster. My suggestion is buy a Royal Enfield ONLY if you love it otherwise you will not be satisfied.

    Thanks a lot for the reply.. Well I think my racing days are over.. So I am looking for a comfortable ride.. Also TB has got me hooked to it.. Only confused if it's worth the money.. My primary concern are comfort, stability and not much trouble in servicing as I will be using it for daily commuting plus some fun family rides..

    At around 1.5 to 1.6 lacs for this machine is definitely worth it. Comfort and stability at normal speed limits is excellent.

    Now talking about the reliability and servicing factor, it is a big question mark. I have my TBTS since 5 yrs and never once faced any oil leakage issues or any kind of hassles. The speedo meter cable tends to cut very frequently but apart from that I have faced just the normal wear and tear. My bike has run around 22,000kms and I have done a few small mods that you can see here on a few pages earlier.

    On the other hand; when ever I take my bike to the SVC, I see customers with brand new bikes cursing and swearing over oil leak issues, excess vibrations, rattling noises, lights not working properly and all kinds of various issues. Many of the customers come back again and again over repeated complaints.

    So I guess its all about luck when it comes to a Royal Enfield.

    Honestly since I brought the RE I have almost claimed 12000 of warranty. Still waiting to get my bike from service. One more daaaam issue and they will hear from consumer court.
