    Common dilemma for the potential owner of RE as told earlier i have booked a gun metal grey but now i am also looking for DS5 and one thought would be hold until pricing of interceptor 650 is disclosed but considering bike would be used only in city mind says C350 would be enough but heart say go for DS5 or wait for interceptor. what to do?

    Finally got the new gunmetal grey variant. I must say this bike looks extraordinary. I can feel the other bulleteers envying me because of the color .
    It feels amazing to drive this bike especially after riding a 150cc bike for a long time.
    Any tips for maintenance of engine and color?

    Thanks!

    1. I commute to my office (6-7 km one side, city riding) on my bike. Would 500 be an overkill for this ride? I've driven both and yes I agree that 500 has much greater torque and acceleration than the 350 (thats the reason I'm inclined towards the 500 model).
    2. Is it worth paying extra 50K given that there are lot of chances of problems happening in the eFI system (mainly fuel pump issue)? How to avoid these issues?
    3. Mileage? What would be the average mileage figures for both these models in city riding?
    4. Vibrations? I currently commute at 70-80, its a 15 minutes ride. But for weekends I mostly go to Delhi, Gurgaon (I live in Noida). Would the vibrations be a problem at these speeds?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    congrats for the bike.wishing you many happy miles with it. regarding maintenance of engine i would suggest to stick with stock silencer until you complete run-in.i was too offered a gun-metal grey but when they told me they would get me 2018 make before Jan 15 i dropped it for 2018 make.

    Guys, I need some gyaan here. I have a soft spot for diesel bullets, and I wish to buy one just to enjoy the sound and smell of a diesel at 6 am.

    I understand the Enfield Diesel is out of production, but the prices of the diesel bullets just keep increasing!

    Diesel bulleteers, what should be the price of a well maintained Diesel Bullet? Are there any problems with cops?

    Are there any good Diesel Bullet mechanics in South India?

    Hi.my classic 350 has clocked 22K kms and is 2 years,5 months old. My battery has drai ed out and the mechanic said the topped up battery will not last more than 2 months. So i will have to get it replaced it with a newer one. So my mechanic suggested me to go for dry cell battery than the conventional acid type. But he is not sure which company has the bullet compatible product. Anybody has changed from acid type to dry cell ?please share the details if you have.
