  1. The Royal Enfield Classic 350 and 500 are set to get a major update. New spy pics show that the bike is equipped with front and rear disc brakes on the right-hand side, instead of on the left like the current model. This change has resulted in the chain shifting over to the left from the right. It also has a more compact exhaust system, which could mean one of two things – Royal Enfield is either downsizing its gigantic exhaust to make the motorcycle more visually appealing or this could be the all-new BS-VI model that is running a reworked engine and exhaust setup. Royal Enfield also appears to have replaced the gas-charged twin shock absorbers for more classic-looking units. You can head here for more info: Image source

  3. Dear Friends, I am planning to buy a Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 within this month. I have decided to sell off my Bajaj Pulsar 180 DTSi and have short listed this beast. Pulsar has been a faithful companion to me but the maintenance costs have become surprisingly high. I have driven it for 60 000 kilometers in last 5 years. The fuel efficiency has also gone down to 25-30 kmpl and vibrations are prominent. After a lot of research I have made up my mind with the Thunderbird. I had no specific criteria for my new bike. I just simply wanted to move on to something new and refreshing. Hence i made a list of prospective bikes and calculated the pros and cons. But one thing I strongly nagged for is whether the bike will suit to my bulky body(I am 6ft-95kg). I should not look disproportionate on the bike while riding. My list included, (No particular budget constraint) 1. Bajaj Pulsar 220F DTSi IMO: Its a outgoing bike in the market. Soon will be replaced. Performance is breathtaking and is loaded with projectors and other modern gadgetry. Suited my physique. But its outdated. 2. Yamaha Fazer 2014 Limited Edition IMO: Most comfortable and refreshing color (Military green-matte black). Though it is in market for a long period, still its a head turner. Where it lacks is power. 153cc is not for me...Coz I am moving from a 180cc. 3. Bajaj Pulsar 200NS IMO: Everything you need. But it looked very odd when I sat on the bike. It didn't suited my physique. 4. TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS IMO: Itz fast. Itz sharp. Itz compact. It looked like a baby cycle when I sat on it. It was disappointing, hence I started jogging. Its a no ! 5. Royal Enfield Electra 350 IMO: Made like a gun. Suited me perfectly. Lacked some basic features and tech stuffs. It was too basic for me. 6. Royal Enfield Continental GT IMO: A sure head-turner. 535cc of pure adrenaline. But the seating position gave me an instant backache. And it is 2.12 lacs on road ! 7. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 IMO: Comfortable, easy to drive, good fit n finish. Loaded with good stuffs, digital display, Discs (both F and R), projectors, LEDs and some eye catchy colors. Service and niggles are a problem. Fuel efficiency is okay. Delivery time of 20 days. After all the research, I have finalized RE Thunderbird 350 (Stone Color). It comes around 1.49 lacs on road here in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. So friends I would like to ask you for suggestions regarding my choice and the things which I should be careful while owning and maintaining the Thunderbird. I would be glad if you can suggest any other bike option. Also RE people are offering 25k exchange price for my Pulsar. Would it be wise to exchange it ? Please suggest !

  5. Hi, I am about to collect my first bike, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 from the dealership. I don't know much about the functioning and running of the bike but intend to learn this by experience. Could you please share your thoughts on what are the aspects of the bike should I be looking at while picking up the bike. They say, you need to do a through check before taking the bike home. I would like to check these things and make sure everything is working fine before leaving the dealership. Thanks!
  6. Finally ended with a Royal Enfield Classic 500 (used). The bike is in immaculate condition. The previous owner has driven it only for 4600 kms in 18 months. I negotiated it for 1.3 lacs. Here are the pics....
  7. Royal Enfield, opened its flagship ‘Concept Store’ in Delhi recently. The store is designed to resemble the living room of a motorcycle aficionado!! In this store, there are lights made out of Royal Enfield headlamps and a wall covered in pictures of old Royal Enfield motorcycles from the ’50s and ’60s. There’s a disassembled Continental GT on another wall and fuel tanks from the current range on another. The store is a means to reach out to enthusiast bikers and allow them to soak in the Royal Enfield lifestyle and heritage. Customers can walk in to the outlet to test ride and buy anything from the company’s range of bikes or the newly launched collection of merchandise; the latter being prominently on display. Also on sale is the company’s collection of riding gear which includes, riding jackets, shoes and helmets. In my personal opinion, if i wanted to buy a bike, i would love to walk into such a store!! A place where i can not only get information about the bike, but also know more about the brand, its heritage!! A place where i could unwind.. Enjoy looking at pictures and works of art on its walls!! A place that was 'NOT OFFICE LIKE'!! But yeah.. There is one downside i could think of!! Such concept stores would require a lot of space.. And with real estate prices skyrocketing, it would definately burn a bigger hole in the pocket of a concept store owner. But that can be made up with higher profits which such stores would make, by bring in more customers due to its attention grabbing design philosophy!! Royal Enfield brought in something new and innovative!! I would definately like to see something similar in Mumbai!! And in my opinion, brands like Triumph, KTM etc. should give this concept a try. Here are a few pics: For more pics, visit my sourse: ACI (http://www.autocarin...lhi-372211.aspx)
  8. I am not a great follower of Royal Enfield in the past but now am planning for one! I pretty much like most RE's and this is causing me confusion on which one to choose. I am a regular biker, never driven long.. always opted cars. But the new RE should get me starting small trips. The main purpose of the bike is City driving (approx. 20km-30km a day) and very occasional long drives. Classic 350 is out of option due to wait period.. Ive made up my mind on 2 bikes and cannot finalize which one. Classic 500 and thunderbird 500. Im not a big fan of cruisers and preferred classic 500. I felt classic 500 is more ideal for city driving, looks pretty nice and also easier handling in city. Thunderbird on other hand I feel is more preferable for long drives and I loved the new TB500 compared to older TB's.. My concern is, thunderbird comes with lot of good features that lack in classic. the digital meters, LED head lights and tail lamps, Front and back discs at almost the same cost of classic. Also I value safety measures and heard classic 500 rear drums may cause bad breaking as it is unable to handle the power. Comfort wise I heard TB is more comfortable than classic, but does that matter for 20-30km per day? I did test ride both models and liked both prioritized by Classic.. but still unable to finalize. Please help/suggest based on your experience...
