Oxygen sensor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
They help determine, in real time, if the air fuel ratio of a combustion engine is rich or lean.

I see in the net CL500 has Closed loop sequential port fuel injection and is missing the Oxygen Sensor(lambda sensor) in india. CL500 has problems in cold conditions unlike the RTR 160Fi which has open loop EFI and has no problems as such(Are there any ?).
Why did Royal Enfield remove this important sensor ?

It's more related to the catalytic converter which is required for a closed loop system. The cat con apparently costs somewhere around 20-30k. So it would have been around 1.8L on road.

Thumbs down disappointing waiting period.

Hi All
Had chat with south zone customer relations manager. He informed that since due to huge pile up for export orders for owning a classic it will take merely 6 months waiting period for all classic bikes. and thunderbird has also gained popularity and waiting period is 3 months now. nothing before that.

With electra and standard being launched in march and april , with this kind of backlogs i doubt there will be any reduction in waiting period. they have gone past the limit and i wonder how many months before it will come to normal.

i can see this also going toyota fortuner way.

mean while i had booked TBTS on 16th of jan and more or less my delivery date is being pushed day by day.

since commutation has become big issue now. i feel to settle with some 220 cc bikes.
what do you guys suggest.

I bought Bullet to live with it till i die . I think you should wait; you may loose 3 months sleep thinking of it, but you will never regret your decision later.

Even i'm not able to make up my mind something other than RE. classic is ruled out due to simple fact that i cannot lay hands before 6 months. but im very much ok with RE TBTS. actually this was the bike which i booked. after booking was inclined to classic.

Anyway folks back home forcing me to change my decision to any bike other than RE due to waiting period. let me hold it by another 2 weeks.

RE manager had called and have informed me that i receive my TBTS in another 2 weeks positive. hope i receive it.

this is on the 18 inch vs 19 inch debate which was ensued in this forum.

I have seen 3 or 4 classic bulls and trust me that 1 inch makes a big difference. the Classic bull looks like a baby bull.

someone also commented that will the tyre size be a determining factor while buying the classic bull. I say yes for me it is.

cheers,
ac

It looks small with the low seating position and 18" wheels. I am not happy with the seat height as that was the main attraction for a tall person like me. I do not care much for the looks.

But I am happy that RE is moving in the right direction with the new models. I am waiting for new versions of the other models.

hmm I am 175 cms and the classic looks as if it has been designed for my height. When u have 2 bullets side by side it looks small but otherwise it still a bullet.

In between I have driven close to 300kms in Mumbai Traffic (all my driving in city only till now) and it is like driving any of the 150cc bikes

Had been to the Bandra Showroom to enquire about the waiting period with regards to CL500.

The fresh update is :-
  • The guys were busy calling buyers who already have their bookings in place to tell them that bike is going to be further delayed.
  • Waiting period for Electra UCE - 45 Days (Bookings are being taken) Onroad Price in Mumbai is - 1.07 Lakhs
  • Waiting period for Standard UCE - 45 Days (Bookings are being taken) Onroad Price in Mumbai is - 90K but this one is no ES, No Front Disk and just our regular STD with the UCE Engine - the handle also is without the Bar-end weights
  • UCE in Chrome (500cc EFI only) will be available by September and will be available in 18' Inchers only
Due to news today, I am strongly inclining towards the TBTS, took a test ride and the bike feels far more comfortable as compared to a CL350 and comes with a lot more features. Also the waiting period is just 20 days.

Second option is - UCE Electra 350cc---- for which the waiting period is 45 days.

Please suggest guys.

The TBTS is a good bike. The only problem some people have with it is the styling.

AFAIK its comfort is unparalleled, especially with OEM seats.

How about the Std. UCE with the fitments and all?

@Mantrig- You will be lucky to even view electra UCE in the showroom within 45 days let alone have one in that time. You cant have std/electra/c5 before April thats for sure.

that's product lineup for now?- 500efi: C5, machismo & with 350carb: T'bird, Cl, Electra, Std.
No 500 carb' version which could have a been a hot seller considering the ease of tuning up wrf to Efi.

Even with usual sales volume, product quality wasn't something very consistent. Now in this pretty high demand & delays, i wonder what policy would they adopt attempting to meet nos.
