But sad to know LB500 is stopped...
Thanks Lohith. Glad to know that the bike is powerful. I hope the 500cc is put to real use without much transmission loss.

My choice would be black. I have started saving money. I hope it will be lauched soon.

I called up the RE showroom in Beasent Nagar. They confirmed that the 500LB is stopped. I asked about the Classic and the reply was "No information yet from the factory". They are not taking any bookings.

Am not sure if the decision to stop the LB500 is good or not... Classic costing close to 150k, 500 will be far away dream for many...

Someone who is looking to by a 500 to tour, wont be happy to spend on a classic..thats my take

Other hand the used 500s will get costlier

i don't think RE would stop LB500 this soon.

why?? there was news on production stoppage of Electra 4S almost a year back, backed by Brand stores too. It is not listed on their website as well. But some one here in this forum took delivery of a new one last week or so.

Sure, will look out.

BMW..., i think it might be possible as it is still not registered, navpreet might have to bear the shipping cost.
I mean pick the bike in Cochin and get it registered in DD..

Is there in complication doing the above?

Thumbs up

The RE Machismo 500LB (lean burn? is it) is available in delhi from the dealer who delivered my RE Electra 4Speed a week back.

It has a waiting period for 10-12 days, and only comes on order basis.
I last confirmed a day back!

Do tell me if i can help in any way.
