    I bought this bike in January 2017 and since then i am getting terrible experience with this bike. Re is looting people, they force you to service you bike every 3 months till your bike completes 2 years to avail warranty and will change almost every spare part of your bike to make money. On every service they force you to change oil filter, air filter, oil even if your bike has not covered their recommended kilometre.

    In 1 year / 6000kms only i have changed 5-air filters, 5-oil filters, 1-clutch cable, 3- rubbers, 2-times wheel balancing. Above parts that are replaced here are chargeable and doesn't comes under warranty.

    As i have mentioned earlier, on every service they say that if you don't change these recommended parts you might face issues in the middle of your journey.

    I don't know why i need to change several parts only in 1 year/6000 kms.

    Now i am facing a new weird problem with my bike, after running for around 12-13kms bike starts missing and suddenly stops in the middle. It seems carburetor is not supplying adequate fuel to engine and this is because vacuum is created inside the tank fuel (this is a known issue, you can google it for this missing issue in re and you will get several links and still re don't have the solution yet)

    As a solution the service centre guys dig a hole on the fuel cap rubber to pass the vacuum (silly solution from re) or now forcing me to change fuel cap and this will not cover under warranty. (costing around rs. 3000)

    I have lost my trust in re and now choice is yours whether you go for re bikes or not.

    Thanks

    I awaited to buy this bike more 3 years and at last my dream was fulfilled am enjoying while driving this bike...It's maintenance is very good.. It looks like an horse. It's performance is very good. Showroom servicing was so good. While riding my body has no pain even after the 3000 km long driver.

    I'm using this bike from last 3 years. The bike is good if you're long distance travellers. It won't perform good in city. In traffic you'll cry for this bike, why you brought. Overall the bike is ok. In city commute you'll feel the power is less. The bike is heavy, if you're good health then you can manage this. You can't view in rear mirror because there is lot of vibration. If you're planning this bike only for trips then this is really good. Otherwise for city traffic it is worse machine.

    Booked my tb350 on 10th jan 2016, n got on 27th jan 2016. I love lightning. 1st 500km , i never speedup 60 kmph. There was some tik tik noise, but after 900 km noise gone. Till 3000 km, i got avg 35kmph, and it is increasing. Now i am getting 42 -45 kmph. The comfort from city ride to long, 10 km to 1200 km, is amazing. Earlier i had cbz, and i was suffering from back pain, but now no back pain. Without medicines and doctor, the pain is gone....Means there is no stress on your back or shoulder. People will talk negative, and maximum people tell you lie, coz they don't own it. Servicing cost is only rs.1100/- till free service, and after it will be rs.1800/-. Normal parts are reasonable prices, and please don't compare with plastic body made bike's parts. All parts are metallic in tb or re. Don't be afraid to buy re or tb, you have to own re. Passionate people only own re...Re is for men....

    Buy only if: 1) you want to show off and can't afford harley. 2) want powerful ride (although many other bikes are available with more power than this)3) size (the only advantage over every bike)4) you love driving (about 50km/day average running)Don't buy b'coz :1) very high maintenance cost after 2 years.2) lack of service good centres (and if you find one they are there to cheat you every time)3) no serious quality check (if you are lucky, you will get a bike which will ride for more than 50k km without any breakdown. But, if not you will get your engine opened even after 10k km)4) spare parts are way too costly (just a meter panel on tb350 costs more than rs. 6000)5) daily average driving is less than 20 km and bike stands idle for more than 10 days at one stretch (believe me this bike is not a fan of standing idle)And the list for not buying goes on...I have written this review after riding my bike for 4 years and spending around 60k during these years. :-(Good luck.

    The wait time for any royal enfield has decreased over the years. The ride has a few problems like braking issues, electrical issues, and vibrations above the speed of 75kmph which the company never bothers to address. In regards to service re has a very few service centres that actually are good. For a 350cc bike it lacks power and lets us down in terms of speed as well. Overall if u only want to use the vehicle for the prestigious re status it's a good pick else please don't buy this bike.

    First of all its price is about 1.65 lakhs and also better for the price. Comfort riding position and the handle bar in such a manner helps you to control it easily. Somehow it is heavier as compared to re classic 350 and other 350 's. Talking about performance , the 346 cc air cooled engine produces 19.4 bhp and the power will meet your requirements! it simply crosses 100 kmph without any trouble and with great stability. The braking system is also nice which helps you to control your bike in high speeds. Overall the looks are good and the projector headlamp focuses better as compared to normal bulbs. The chrome part and tail lamp catches everyone's eyes ! maintenance costs are higher than other re 350's. Changing of oil seals , chains and sprockets etc costs more. Sound changes as the engine gets over heated during long rides. The pillion seats are short that he/she(pillion) could suffer back pains during long rides.The 20 ltr fuel tank is very much helpful for people who go for long rides.
