    excellient, it's a 350cc bike, but it will easily give you more than 45km/lt

    Style

    the royal enfield has been a style statement and a status symbol from the colonial times. The classic 350 does not fall short of this description. When you ride a classic 500 you are sure to make heads turn. The chrome parts, the perfect paint job, and the thumping makes you feel proud and tall. Royal enfield has done everything right here! another great touch is the classic speedometer.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    with 350cc and over 22bhp, the classic 350 delivers the royal enfield promise. The acceleration is unmatchable; it climbs up to a 60kmph under 7-9seconds. The highest speed i have clocked on the is 110kmph while riding solo.

    The riding position is the best you can find if you like cruising or taking long trips. The pillion seat too is extremely comfortable especially if you need it to seat a girlfriend or wife for a long journey. The fuel economy promised by the company is 25kmpl and above. However most people got 29km/ltr after fourth service.

    Ride quality & handling

    the seating position, thigh pads and handle bars that are spaced perfectly make riding this beast a treasured experience. For most of it, you feel like you are just gliding in air unless at speeds higher than 80kmph. At high speeds, the bike tends to vibrate a little and can get a annoying at high speeds. The suspension absorbs every little pothole like a sponge. Sometimes, you won't know a pothole exists, thats how well the classic 500 swallows them. With these features and abilities, you can ride on any terrain with you classic. The soft suspension may cause your silencer hit the ground on high speed breakers or while your off-roading. In case you are going to use it in farms or rough terrain you should consider getting an upswept silencer.

    Final words

    a royal enfield is not for everyone. The classic 500 is a beautiful peace of metal that anyone will grow to love. The bike does justice to its name 'classic', the styling right from the paint job to the vintage speedometer dials complement the name. You will fall in love with the bike before you know it.

    Areas of improvement

    1. The gearbox needs serious fixing.

    2. They need to introduce disc breaks for the rear wheels, it would boost confidence while making long trips.

    Pros

    beast look

    cons

    nothing

    Royal enfield classic 500 is a amazing bike .

    Which was useful and safe riding and speed with beat sound.

    Royal enfield made like a gun goes like a bullet.

    It was used everything for long riding without any back pain.

    Royal enfield looks awesome.

    and the classic, heritage and time-tested performance go hand in hand. Its dashing, vintage-inspired looks are underscored by an enfield trademark - dependability.

    The classic is a machine you can count on, come hill, dale or plain. It has the torque to flatten mountains and persevere through entire ranges.

    I bought this bike 1 year before and since then i literally fell love this hunk... It feels the best when you ride this, as it makes the man perfect... Thus you don't need a woman to make yourself complete as a royal enfield makes you ride the best no matter what kind of roads you travel on... The servicing has always been awesome as customer satisfaction is always their top priority and they do take care of each of our concern. I don't feel that there are any cons as from the dashing headlights to the powerful engine and the great looks makes it sexy...

    Buying a royal enfield was dream, i think everyone has this desire of buying a royal enfield, the look and feel of the bike is excellent that thumpy engine, which makes your adrenaline pump, the experience cannot be explained it can only be felt. There where so many bikes but for me only royal enfield mattered for the same price, i could have got a motorcycle with more technology. But none of them had feel of royal enfield so i bought it without any second thoughts. I have only pros say in this bike not many cons.

    Cons

    1.The bike vibrates a lot but it's not a con, really it's the character of the bike itself.

    2.I think royal enfield has to improve the build quality.
