    Default How good is Royal Enfield classic 500

    Hi All,

    Planning to buy classic 500.I have read mixed review of this machine so not sure about the inside story about it.

    I know many members are owning this machine and i will be very happy if you guys put your insight about this.

    i want to know about these points

    - Any known major issue with machine.
    - How good this for touring.
    - Waiting period for the bike

    Thanks in advance for your inputs

    Even, I wish to add few more points to your questions.

    1 - Is it good for a person who is 6ft+ in height.
    2 - Does EFI creates any problems?
    3 - My max speed in any bike goes to 70 km/hr. Is this bike runs fine under that speed?

    Actually, I went to RE showroom. The price of Thunderbird TS is 1.25 lac and for classic it is 1.59 lac. So, diff is only 34k which is a worthwhile for extra power.

    The waiting period is very less in Jaipur. For TBTS, you can get it directly and for Classic 350 waiting is 2-3 months but for Classic 500 waiting is 20 days.

    I wish to buy a RE but for touring purpose and it should not hurt my back on longer rides. Quite confused.

    Hi All,

    I am very excited to let you all know that finally I have booked CL500 5 days back (almost all my friends were of the opinion that I should not go for CL500 instead I should choose CL350 but I have listened to my heart and booked CL500).........but I am confused regarding which color to opt for....I have selected CL black....because couple of my office colleague have the same black color and they say it is easier to maintain over longer period of time.........
    CLDS is no...bcoz of the color finish have seen many DS but the color job done is not good. No offense to DS owners...
    Can anyone suggest how does the new CL Tan & CL Silver looks...............
    Also is the FI issue resolved in 2014 CL...........
