    Question RE Classic 350 or 500? Suggestions Pls

    I am unable to decide, which one to buy 350 or 500, though I have booked it on Jan 13th, and I have been told I will be getting it in 3 to 4 month. So I have three months to decide. So Pls suggest me in terms of Mileage, Price, Power........

    cummon man.. are you not able to decide between 350 and 500..

    Its 500 all the way.. ya only if u have some money ..

    Mileage :- Since its a FI model so a good mileage is expected. may be arnd

    35 or so from this beast ( no idea about exact figure, since it

    depends on your riding also)

    Power :- 27.2 bhp and 41.3Nm of torque. So quite handful for city rides

    as well as long tour.

    Price :- ~ 1.5L /-

    You can have more idea if you see the royal enfield site.

    Thanks yaar

    But my question is that 350 itself has enough Power so do we need 500. if yes then how is that Xtra 150cc be useful at the cost of Higher price and Lower mileage. Can it be justified.

    it's the torque which does all the talking on the 500...you get 18" wheels both upfront and back,mileage figure of slightly lesser than the 350,FI...that itself is more than enough to go for it...with roughly 35-40k price difference,the 500 is worth it IMO...as you said though,if you're a city rider most of the time,350 makes sense,but out on open roads,the 500 will give you that little extra...

    Test ride the 500. May be that will have you convinced that the 500 is way more entertaining. It convinced me.

    Taken the test drive and its really very convincing, but I dont want to regret later, thus this thread.
    So thanks all, I think I shall consider 500 untill I get any inconvincing Post here.

    500 is basically not a bullet i must say from what i have read. it is as good as any other jap 4 stroke. but the basic chassis and RE quality is not upto the mark i was told.
