    My (four) days old bike received on 20th july 2015 royal enfield classic 500cc silver in color is in the h.S.R service station sr nagar, not even number plated, rode only 18km, bought in from hsr store which is in lalbagh road, bangalore what happened? my old habit with previous bike pulsar 150cc keeping the wiping cloth just below the tank, did the same with my new enfield (incident date 24th july 2015) in the middle of road speed of 40km bike back tire was sudden stop bike started skirting nearly 8-9 times somehow i managed handling without falling down, and god bless lucky nothing came and hit me from behind from heavy moving traffic (lifestyle signal) had to stop in the middle of road and i had no idea what could have happened than i moved the bike aside of road such a heavy bike with the help of people around there as the back tire was stuck (not moving), than i see they was a cloth stuck in the chain, so guess what happened is small piece of wiping cloth rolled to a chain and went inside the damaged crank box,

    bike reached hsr service station after checked, manager says if we have to change the crank box will cost you rs. 25,000/- (Thousand) new crank rs. 17,000/- Plus oil/labor charges altogether will come up to rs. 25,000/- So easy to say,

    (customer) i was very up-set and disappointed, i said but it should be replaced how can such a small piece of cloth go break the parts inside, manager said it’s not a manufacturing defect ;) so i get it it’s my mistake that i have kept the wiping cloth there, but what about the quality factor which a small cloth can also break this type of metal, for god sake it’s a (royal enfield it’s a huge brand)and to hear such a thing was not pleasing me at all, ah he did mention this was the case received,

    customer- than i asked what if insurance can cover the damage, manager- it’s not accident or something so it’s no basically , customer- i was imagining now here i could have lost my life in this incident but nobody would understand this part,

    i was not totally disappointed until yesterday 27th july 2015 when i drop down to the service station and saw all the engine part open into pieces, it was not a good feeling at all for a five days old as new bike trust me.

    And this bike i had bought for my younger brother to gift him on his birthday which is in 4 days 1st august his birthday l.

    I like to extend my courtesy to mr. Mithun (gm) who understand my need of surprising my brother on his birthday gift and to get the bike asap.

    A suggestion please add this part to say to your customers not to keep any cloth below the tank in the time of introduction/explanation on time of delivery to customer, this lack of acknowledge, can cost someone’s life.

    Style i am proud owner of black classic 500, when you drive it on road everyone notice. Classic retro look is on the mark and royal enfied feel comes so well.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox power of engine is too good, you just need to give little race and bike will fly. Fuel economy is good, approx 5 km/liter less than 350cc. Gears are smooth, i havn't face any issues.

    Ride quality & handling ride quality is great, power and pick-up, handling is also very good. But if you are a daily rider in city traffic, its not for you. Best for long highway rides..!!

    Final words don't read too much of reviews, just go for it... This killer machine will not disappoint you in any way.

    Areas of improvement improve handling in city traffic..!!

    Pros

    style, thump & power

    cons

    not for city drive

    Hi, i have purchased classic 500 in October-2015 , i would suggest rather request not buy this motorcycle , this is the worst motorcycle, i have seen in my entire life, it's am saying after using it for just 17000 km , one fine day when i riding the bike small knocking sound started coming from engine within a ride of 5 km it was so loud that i stopped the bike & called mechanic of re , he said there is a major problem, i had to replace entire engine , it cost of 27k , till date i have regular servicing of re from showroom ,still this happened ,after asking service engineer he said is this problems happens in most of 500 , somehow i tried to digest this but one more surprise was waiting for me against in 6 days of time motor stop working i again called the mechanic he said there is minor issue with starter . He did sometime & it starting but this was not the all , against after two days motor stopped working , i got really frustrated & asked re service to solve the problem , he said start has got damaged its be on repair , i had spent more 14k on this Conclusion : 60 k spend on repairing for use of 17k km, not worth for a bike like this.

    1)the price tag is experience but for this kind of bike this price is nothing..

    2) the experience of riding this kind of bike is amazing and feel good to ride it.

    3)performance is like 5 star and look is about your passion.

    4)maintenance is the best guide to all and this bike is more probable for maintenance.And servicing is good in care.

    5)pros and cons is like caring but the most important part is caring..If you have a bike like 500cc then you have to be affordable .So take care of it.

    IF you are looking for a good looking cruiser bike no one can beat it and everyone will be looking around to see the bike but people may not enjoy the thump as the rider do. Post 80 kmph the mirrors and bike vibrate a lot you cannot see anything in the mirrors and whole bike vibrates after 80kmph and the nuts loosen fast and the metal tend to rust and bike can stop anytime as the build quality is much better. IF YOU CAN LIVE WITH THESE PROBLEMS YOU CAN BUY THIS BIKE. IT DEFINITELY DOES NOT WORTH 2 LAKHS YOU GET BETTER DOMINAR AT THE SAME PRICE...
