    I am owing this bike from 2014 and ridden approx 21000 km plus no any critical issues , Perfect bike for them who consider it as machine not as bike. just proper oil change , monthly health check like tightening of each bolt , a bit of issue with gear . Otherwise all is good and as expected . Even a mileage of 31 km plus on highway at 80-90kmph. Pretty satisfied.

    1.Buying experience. It is although costly but when u purchase u will feel proud at yourself because of a choosing a good bike 2.Riding experience 1st i hate royal enfield but one day i booked thunderbird but that time thunderbird is not available for riding but owner give me chance to ride dessert 500cc 1st i afraid to see this bike to seeing it's weight and i started driving slowly i am not feeling good but when co driver said me go and drive then i slowly open at it and then i feel why it is royal enfield because of it giving feeling of royalty after some time i stop and take selfie with it and then i see this colour is very different and i feel cool then once again i start it and i have full accelerator and i saw its at 125 with in 6 sec then it fully struck in my mind and it was my dream after that drive i forgot all bike like thunderbird hornet impulse pulsar avengers many more 3.Details about looks, performance Look is cool but there i want some changes as like tyre ,alloy wheel, speedometer and average of they can do about it because if it got puncture then it is change every rider mind to give it up. Leave this performance is also best 4.Servicing and maintenance Agar achhe mechanic h service centre me the to thik nahi to afat hi samgho 5.Pros and cons I give full support to this bike leave something like it should be Tubeless tires Digital meter Scratch resistant painting.

    I would like to explain things in pros and cons

    Cons:

    * very heavy bike

    * greatest con of this bike for me is that i agree with the fact that this bike is available with tork in every gear and any where but due to low bhp and heavy weight it feels very under powered

    * easy rusting of chrome parts because of there low quality

    * if you r i wrong gear it vibrates a lot, even if you take it above 110kph it vibrates the same will happen

    * no proper service centers , knowledge less people works over there whom a excessively rude

    Pros: for me pros of this bike is very less as compare to cons

    * no one can deny with the fact that this bike look beautiful

    * high re-sale value

    * girls would love be a pillion of you

    I bought classic desert storm 500cc two years back. It's been extremely high on maintenance and a pain to possess. It's prone to scratches, rust and frequent battery failures leading to on the way stoppages. Completely unreliable bike on isolated routes. And just two days after service costing inr 2,500+ from brawn automobiles gurgaon on 19th aug'18 the bike has stopped unable to restart again. This was not the first time it stopped. Called road side assistance at 13:12pm which responded after 3 hr 30 mins by when i had dragged this bike 8 km back home. Thank god was not in mid of a long tour like it happened last time was on the way to doon. It's maintenance will bleed your pocket to death and test your physical fitness to the core, trust me.

    I love bikes, in fact anything that has a throttle and 2 wheels to support my weight. Any sane person who likes classic stuff will definitely appreciate the retro looks of desert storm. You pay a good amount for an unrefined, old school machine which vibrates a lot, but the thump and looks keep wanting for more.

    Pros. Looks, comfortable seating, good torque at low rpm gives good lugging ability, metal body, cheap repairs and simple mechanical which can be tackled at any corner of india.

    Cons. Vibrations, lacks refinement, below average brakes, no gear indicator, sluggish gearing, average performance, poor authorised service centres and then there is rust, it's everywhere.

    I crossed himalaya with my desert storm and i absolutely loved it. I don't know the reason but it appeals every time i look at it.

    Verdict: if you want trouble free and performance oriented machines, look somewhere else. If you want the nostalgic thump, performance is not a mist and can give a lot of care to your bike, go for it.

    Dear bulleteers, I am riding this bike for about 3 years. Frankly speaking its really royal to ride this bike. The mileage pinches a little, but I can tolerate considering the feeling. The only thing I hate is braking. otherwise this is a head-turner and eye-catcher. I love my dear bike. I love its initial acceleration, and the roaring engine. But RE should have been more careful about the build quality. It needs a lot of care, this is not for rough use. you need to take it as a family member otherwise it will lost its glamour too early. But besides all disadvantages, as a user of this bike I feel sick to part with it.

    The royal enfield classic desert storm is a sort of special edition bike from the company, based on its classic 500 platform.Best bike so smooth just go on and on. I love to ride this beautiful machine specially on weekends. Servicing is also not burden on any rider because royal enfield bikes require least servicing, at least only when bike require it & that too not very costly until unless it needs to change any part.
