Just came back from Dealership in Delhi.

500cc - 132k on road
350cc - 102k on road

Red colour seems to be much in demand.

Ho Ho!

I am so getting the 500!

Time to start convincing dad to loosen the purse strings.

@Navpreet
Oye! Shantanu is buying a 500? How much does he want for his Std?
A well broken-in bullet is very enticing!
You buying one too?

Hehe shantanu was so in love with this bike that all the time after seeing this bike he just wanted to buy it right then.we even planned to just steal it when the dealer went into the showroom.lol.

Yes i'll buy it too but after a year.have to make some money for it first.because i won't sell my LB500.

Does the Doon wala dealer have a TD vehicle?

I just wanna try it once before I go in for it. With exams coming up, I doubt I'll get the time though.

Lets see.

How cool is that green shade! How can someone not like it!

Any chance of seeing 19"ers shod on the classic?

Awesome!! My only concern is whether the bike would be comfortable for a tall guy. The seat height looks low compared to Machismo which was good for me.

Insha Allah, I will be going for one sometime next year.

Thumbs down

Checked out the classic at Raisoni auto on Ghole road and frankly, I was dissapointed at the small size of the wheels. It makes the bike look more like an avenger than a bullet. These wheels are OK for city riding but for touring they just wont meet the grade.
Yes, they can be changed to 19/23.5 for an extra 5K + cost for the front mudguard which would have to be from the 350. (this also reduces colour options to black and maroon only).

I hope enfield will give us a company retro fit option for the tires.

Better still, bring out the thunderbird in 500cc FI for the perfect touring bike.
