    The buying experience was great, i bought it with emi option for a tenure of 36 months.The bike ride is great for both daily commute and off roading. The looks of bike is much better than its electra model but i wish it had the same tank as of re bullet standard which has 3d engraving and painted with hands.Maintenance cost is somewhat higher than other bikes but it deserves that attention and care.The only con is the gearbox, sometimes gears box confuses me, leaving that the whole bike is great and worthy of riding.

    I bought my bike 6 months ago. I felt i am proud owner of classic 350 redditch model. Few days back my bike broken down near my shop. Then i called rsa(road side assistance) which royal enfield claims a 24x7 service. They asked me to put my bike in some safe place as they cannot provide service. I felt bad and that was obvious. Because when u buy a bike for rs 1.80 lakh, you would expect much better service, showroom owner said i don't have mechanics right now so i would send it tomorrow. But today again i face the same problem and the showroom owner gave me the same excuse. It is so heartbreaking. I like travelling places on my bike. Now after such poor service. I am scared. What if my breakdown in the middle of a forest or unknown place. What if i get same reply that time. Please think before buying. besides service bike is awesome. Feel proud. But service will let you down,Major cons.1. Service.2. Poor wiring. (because right now i come to know that there was cut in wire, and the wire was totally covered. Last time when i faced the problem there was the same problem. There was cut in wire.) Bike is non-reliable.

    it will provide you 100% great smooth drive compare to other bullets. Initially i have not that much interest on bullets after got back pain from normal bykes i planned to go for bullet and done test rode withh all bullets( cl, tb & electra). Tb and electra make felt the bad road conditions but in classic couldn’t feel the bad road conditions. So give you guarantee for 100% sure for smooth ride at all in any kind of roads. You no need to believe my w0rds here. Pls go and get a test on all the bulls in worst road then you will realize my above words

    final words

    the royal enfield bullet has for decades been the byword for rugged, refined cool and a bike handcrafted to perfection. The bullet classic was unveiled by royal enfield at intermot exhibition in germany. They have already launched this mouthwatering classic version of its legendary motorcycle abroad. Bullet classic was first launched in germany followed by european launch. But for india royal enfield has removed the "bullet" tag from the name and it is going to be sold as "royal enfield classic" for indian market. For india royal enfield has launched the classic in two models - cl 350 & classic 500. .....Dream bike...Gives me royal feeling...

    Areas of improvement

    mirror/handle vibrations, rear disc brake would be a gr8 option

    pros

    thumping exhaust....

    Cons

    fuel economy

    1. Buying experience - it was pretty usual though i was overexcited about it. 2. Riding experience - man now we're talking cause this bike feels so good and that thump acts like the cherry above the cake. Though at higher rpms there is vibration but keep room low and it is butter smooth.3. Looks - i believe looks are subjective thing if you like retro looking motorcycle then go for it and yeah it has got a lot of chrome too.4. Servicing and maintenance - yeah the service and maintenance cost is high and the fuel economy is low too as its a 350cc beast but it's manageable.5. Pros - comfort, suitable for long rides, design, room for modifications, power. cons - viby, lack of info in the console, expensive parts.

    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 discription. When you ride a classic 350 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 pilion 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 45kmpl however in city conditions a litre yields about 26-30km. Its a little disappointing and can take a toll in times of inflation, but once you ride an enfield you know fuel economy does not matter! a fuel tank of 12litres would yield 320-330 kms in the city and over 20km more on the highway. There isn't a fuel gauge.

    Another bummer is the gearbox. The gear peddle gets sort of jammed often. Another classic problem with enfields it that they slip into neutral which shifting gears, re hasn't rectified it on the newer models.

    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 350 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 350 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. Royal enfield service is no good, you need to rely on other mechanics.
    3. A fuel gauge is much needed.
    4. They need to introduce disc breaks for the rear wheels, it would boost confidence while making long trips.

    Pros

    styling, seating position, great power, makes heads turn

    cons

    gearbox, rear drum breaks

    I purchased my re redditch red 350 last year,after reading reviews on bikewale.Com which helps alot to select this model from re. As the name of machine itself described as "royal". My first long tour planned within one month of purchase for leh-ladhak (dream ride for most of bike lovers). I enjoyed the ride during this tour bcoz this royal machine do not bother about the distance,road, altitude, it is just smooth. Look is sexy of redditch red, which are verified in ladhakh trip photo's.Most of cities have authorized service center, not too much high in maintenance as rumors always in the air for re. First service done in leh city of my machine during ladhakh trip.For royal bike lover, there is no cons, all are pros like riding experience, smooth ride,power,royal look,you can as much experiments as you want in this machine for modification. And when you go in group for touring on re, all the eyes on you with a sigh !
