    Hi, i am a proud owner of this beast from last one year, the pleasure it gives on road is just i feel above all.I purchased my dream bike from a company owned showroom some where in oct 2017. The showroom of royal enfield was awesome with colorful decor and having all the models of enfield and had a wide range of accessories to choose as per customer requirements.When i entered the showroom i was welcomed by the executive who was well dressed and having good knowledge of all models. After having few snacks which were mouth watering the executive suggested to go for test ride. I rode the models classic 350,thunderbird and classic 500.All the models were awesome but my eyes stuck with this beast royal enfield classic 500. The ride experience was superb.After having a detailed conversation with company person i purchased this bike and i also grabbed a good discount on accessories. The buying experience was awesome. I almost driven the bike for about 5000 km and the experience is awesome it gives you a feel of completeness. The looks is of studd and power of a beast, it rules the road like a leader and gives you comfort of a home. The extra long seat with good suspension makes you feel comfortable and gives u pleasure of having full control. The performance of the bike is awesome, it is a all season and all purpose bike weather you are on road or off road with bike you can be care free.One important point is maintenance, i always prefer to go in company owned service center and on time service. Timely service gives you security and confidence to ride like a hero. Pros:Good looks Powerful Very comfortable Vintage beauty with modern features Eye catcher on road Cons:I don't see and cons but yaa as it's powerful bike you cant expect very good average but compare to power and comfort it reasonable. Maintenance cost is a little high then normal bike.

    I saw lot of negative reviews above yes of course royal enfield too has pros and cons but if u want the royal enfield to be like duke its not possible this is classic that is streets what i am going to say is choose the bike according to u r physical personality royal enfield are need a good care and maintenance its not meant for fast ride the comfort its the main motto so if u want your ride to be comfortable smooth then go for royal enfield its one of the amazing bike for Indian roads and more features compered to harley with less price . The company is there for more than 50 years and had set lots of record in riding and also world record in stunts so i am very happy to be a rider of royal enfield made like a gun.

    I own a Royal Enfield Classic 500 which was bought in November of 2015. My brother had the bike for about an year and then it was passed on to me. The odometer was at 13000 Kms when I got the bike permanently and not like on weekends with permission. The bike was well maintained by him and serviced timely by authorised service centre. I was riding the bike on a rainy day and while on my daily 15 Km commute, the engine was vaporising the rain drops. It was a lot of vapour so I had to stop at every couple of kilometres. I got the bike checked and it came to my knowledge that the 500cc model has overheating issue. Soon after my injector had issues. The self start did not work well. I was advised to get the injector removed and get a carburettor installed which coated me Rs 20,000. My 1.5 yrs bike now started emitting white smoke. At first I ignored it because I was getting it serviced on time and had already spent a lot on getting the injector installed. In a month or so I felt performance drop in the bike and the noise from the engine had increased. I got to bike checked and it came to my knowledge that the head of the piston needs to be replaced and the cylinder kit as well. The estimated cost of which is at-least Rs 20,000. The bike had burned the 3 Litre engine oil in less than 1000 Kms. I am done with the bike now. I know the feeling of riding a bullet which caused be to buy the top model bullet and in my opinion it is the worst. DO NOT BUY IF YOU CANT PAY FOR THE REPAIRS WHICH WILL SURELY OCCUR. I never changed the EXHAUST of the bike and I do hyper-miling to get the best mileage. I am getting around 30kmpl but I spending a lot on engine oil because the repair cost is a lot and still there won't be any guarantee that the issue will never re-occur.
