    Style

    style is based on a vintage desgin so nothing much to expect here. Albeit the color is catchy

    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    very powerfull engine gives you a zooming pick up. Its got a fair fuel economy considering its power but the gear box may need some improvement.

    Ride quality & handling

    handling is bit of a nuisance as well as comfort.

    Final words

    buy it if your looking for a bike that has a vintage appeal with a modern engine.

    Areas of improvement

    handling, comfort.

    Pros

    power

    cons

    styling, handling, no comfort

    Bought it on 6 dec 2013. After 1 month i was unable to start the bike either by kick or by electric start. On complaining to my dealer(kaytee automobile) they lamented that you did not use bike regularly that's why its battery had drained and did not pay any heed start making excuses it has been 5 years as of now and the bike has same problem. Only buy this bike if you can use it regularly otherwise it will become a white elephant and will cast a slur on your pocket. Pick up is great, handling is the best part. 25 kmpl avg. Maintenance very expensive fuel pump 14000 piston 8500 injector 3000 and computer 28000. Servicing will cost near about 2500.

    Style

    great styling as usual,with a little tweaks

    engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox

    very powerful engine makes the 190kg bike vibrate like a plastic toy,gives a great pickup even when going uphill with 2 people mounted

    ride quality & handling

    ride quality is good,can be balanced very well at low speeds of 5-10kmph,handling is good but manoeuvring through tense streets might be an issue

    final words

    great styling,great paintjob,very powerful engine and less weight compared to older versions make it the best royal enfield

    areas of improvement

    comfort

    pros

    vintage design,matte finish,powerful engine

    cons

    no rear disk brake

    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.

    At first ride the bike feels powerful. But just a week or so later the bike has jerks , initial throttle missing and loose body parts . It cannot be cornered easily , scrapes of brake pedal and foot pegs. Talking services, most services cost about 500 rupees plus .

    The pros are it looks beefy , higher displacement vehicle for such low price , customizability ( off showroom).

    The cons are weight distribution, overall weight , handling , loosening of parts , braking. Tire size.
