The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is suitable for those who desire a bike with classic styling along with good comfort for long distance riding. The torquey 500cc motor feels stress-free while highway cruising and it also aids in quick overtakes. However, the old-school charm of the Classic comes at a cost of less modern equipment.
5Classic 500 is the real 1 week ago by Thiyagu, Chennai
I can tell everyone who wants to choose between classic 350 or 500 , see don't trust any other review just go for 500.. It's the real bullet, you can feel the riding pleasure and there won't be much vibration etc.. Only cons is the mileage apart from it.. you can't find any other fault in this ... Just go for 500 and feel the real bullet experience....
Engine issue in just 30k km, done re boring close to 15000rs, self start related debug, another 4000rs, ignition lock damaged, carburetor float issue, and list goes like that.. Very very unreliable poor jung of iron.2 time chain and sprocket changed already, Another funny idea by royal enfield is make a bike with majority of iron, and keep swing arm bush some kind of plastic or fiber, that damage every 7k run.
I am riding since 7 months .I experienced a retro look and retro style bcz of chrome ,it shines when you are under sun-rays, it looks classic when you r under shadow more over it makes a man look classic and charming when riding it , you can give a retro touch by only adding extra silencer and removing rear seat ......When it comes for performance it is good compared to other re vehicles,but only thing is maintenance of the vehicle is bit tough compare to other vehicles , but for these retro looked bike that much maintenance is required ,or else it will be like other vehicle ....
