    Best bike ever own ! nothing ever feel except vibration. About fuel? monster just eat all oil and gave zero performance. The crap bike. Don't know why all prefer this bike. One of the leading noise polluter. Someone should prefer ok bike which is quite and packed with performance . Which passes someone and he should always wonder "what was that".

    I had waited for quite a long time for the carburetor version of uc 500 engine since i was sceptical about the fuel injection. I am old school and prefer to stay that way. I have owned and used most of the old models of re right from 1972 standard 350 and surprisingly this 500 turned out to be more trust worthy and reliable than any of their previous old school models ( i mean the engine in all aspects?. All it needs a regular service with a good mechanic who should be willing to learn this new engine. He should be honest to stop if he has any idea or doubt about what he is doing. Which interprets directly that this is a problem free lady. The traits however is a noisy engine and you should get used to it specially to ignore it. The cam noise crops up very often and sometime it needs changing otherwise you got a sexy mistress with you. Let all you fantasies come true.

    Not too sure if this is the correct forum to start this thread. But as i could not get any relevant information with regards to the bullet 500, i am starting this thread.Please merge this thread with any available options.From my school days, i have always liked and loved the royal enfields. Still remember the time, when our neighbourhood uncle used to come back from his office, and we used to know about his arrival much before we could see him. Yes, it was the thud, that gave him away. Back then, owning a bullet meant many things, depending upon the perception. For someone , like my mom, it is the bike of the milkman. Yet, for others, it is the bike of the "policewala". Whatever be the choice and the image it had, royal enfield, is always royal. The name itself has the royal-ness in it. Don't you agree? off-course owning one at that time was never possible as it was a strictly "no-no" motorcycle. Though much later i did come to know, that dad also likes the bullets...

    Hello guys Royal enfield provides a good buying experience to its customers so you will always have a peace of mind apart form the waiting period nothing else will come in your way . Even though i was lucky i didn't have to wait . The main reason i didn't really had to wait is because people today are mad about the classic and thunderbird . let's talk about the looks the standard 500 is a looker it is a bike pumped up with testosterone . The forest green paint with the pin striping is just amazing imagine in this day of mass production a human had painted your bike . Slowing this bike starts growing on you . All ways remember the name bullet is bigger than the name royal enfield and may it me a electra , classic , thunderbird people always refer these bikes as bullet This bike has more than enough performance great for highway tours and safe to handle Earlier this bike used to come with a carburetor but now it is available with a fuel injection system this is good and a bad thing good because your throttle response increases but the cost of maintenance increases all models with efi system should be taken good care of Most importantly the injector system should be cleaned regularly other you will face bike misfiring , worn out spark plugs For you to be always satisfied with your bike you should always take good care of your bullet service it properly and service it in your supervision because some things in the bike is really time consuming to service so mechanic ten to skip it All the best buy a std 500 and everything else will fall in place and you will fall in love with your bullet.

    Bought the bullet 500cc with great expectation and excitement but it did not feel good after riding it. Riding experience is below average. Incident traveled 300km to kodikanal reaching there chain sprocket gone. Bike ride in rain self did not work after that short circuit. Overall a poor ride. Looks is really stunning and amazing but performance wise its not met. Poor service and maintenance.

    Pros:

    1. Elegant look

    2. Comfortable for single traveler

    3. Good shock absorber.

    Cons:

    1. Poor maintenance

    2. Tank does not be ridden in reserve mode as it will damage the air filter

    3. Poor self start system in rain it wont start

    4. Hand jerking while going above 80kms( funny 500cc bike cannot go farther than 8o kms)

    5. Back traveler seat not comfortable for long drive will cause spinal injuries and back ache.

    6. Silencer too low. When we turn a big right turn or hair pin the silencer touches the road.

    Style really oldschool bullet style.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox acceleration is verygood and reach 100kmph just at 10 sec, which is awsome. What ever your speed or acceleration sure milage of 30+kmpl.

    Ride quality & handling nothing to write about typical bullet ride and handling, through breaking is quite heavy for its raw power above 100kmph, but one can control anyspeed just playing with clatch and gear.

    Final words if you experience a rael royal enfield just go for it.

    Areas of improvement nothing raelly, but i am one of the unhappy customer if re service station.

    Pros

    power, comfort, acceleration

    cons

    breaking and service...
