@virtualhemant - can you post the details of the finance option by HDFC and any other banks you have checked out? ROI, EMI, downpayment info is what I am interested in.

Default took deliver of my CL500

Congrats mate I got mine in C green. You will find more false neutral till you get your first service done after that it will be smooth. So don't panic with any issues with gear shift's up to 500km. I have a oil leak where the kick shaft comes out under the chain sprocket. I have all ready seen the oil leak it two more bikes at the same place so have a look there. Waiting to get it replaced soon.

By the way good luck with opening the tool box. It took me 15 minutes at the first attempt and lot of swearing to get it opened. Although don't bother opening it as the tool kit is useless. Except opening one spark plug, rear tyre and headlamp the tool kit will not help you in removing the rear seat or tightening the heat shield which on mine got loose twice after tightening.

Hi,

Anyone got any influence with Delhi dealers? Now that I am ready to buy one, I can't find any dealer with a waiting time less than 20 days.

:(

yeah ! the waiting time is too much on the CL500 ! you might consider going in for te 350 as well , it wont hurt if you are not much of a tourer !

I think people buying the 500 should buy it in green because that is the exclusive colour for the 500. The 350 does not get the green colour.

The bike is a rage with mechanics already. Many of them have started a florishing business of converting old bikes to Classics!

Though its quite early to ask, does anyone have an idea how the spare part prices for the UCE engined bikes are like?

Ess Aar Motors in Delhi says that 350 spares are much more easily available vis-a-vis 500 parts. Don't know about the costs. Should be the same as the TBTS.

this is just a plot to sell more 350's which the company has produced knowing that this will be the more selling classic.

This is the future lineup of royal enfield and you should not be worried about spares at all.

If you take great care of the machine and get things rectified in time then this bike does not give as much problems as it is made out to be.

Only in rare cases and abuse i have seen that this bike has given trouble to people.

@navpreet318 -Well in that case I'll consider myself in that rare category. My 500 classic has developed a leak, waited three weeks to get the oil seal in. Got it changed yesterday and its leaking again. Had a look at few TBTS(at the workshop) all of them had the oil leak from the same place.

that is actually a very peculiar thing.i checked out quite a few classics here.one at the showroom.one with a friend and one unknown standing at a parking lot but none had the leak.i specifically checked the kickstarter lever for leak as you had mentioned it earlier but all was well here.

maybe a bad lot of seals etc.Initial teething problems will be there.i consider myself lucky to have grabbed one of the last few LB500 which has most of the issues sorted out.same will be with the classic.One year down the line all issues would be fixed and your bike as well as other bikes would be trouble free.

Hey!

Yeah, I am pretty sure that is what it is.

The worst part is, whoever my dad talks to tells him that 500 is garbage (This includes the showroom guys as well).

It is getting really hard to keep him on the 500 track. It has boiled down to availability now. If we find a 500 available for a quick delivery, I'll pick it up.


I just got back from a dealer and no such luck yet. Did meet a couple of guys who were fighting tooth and nail to get a Std. booked. First time in my life, did I see people fighting to pay the dealer money and the dealer being reluctant!

PS: Back from Uttarkashi?
