Very!

Its my favorite part while riding. I love leaning into fast corners and coming out without a wobble. It just feels so composed!

Thats good to hear!
Because heard it feels like its going to fall while going into turns, then guess there is something with that bike.

@Dhruva

Like always it all depends on the rider too. Being a newbie bulleteer, I found it easy. Hence, one can conclude it is pretty turn friendly.

Default Booked CL500 - Banaglore - Technic Motors - Outer Ring Road

Guys,

The wait seems to be 6 months now and the booking amount charged is just 1k. May be that's the reason everyone's is getting the bike booked.

There is a MACH500 standing in the showroom at 1.25 L. Should I go ahead and take that? I have only seen Cl500 on RE website but MACH looked like a bull.

CL500 OTR will be 1.52 L thats hell of a lot. How much you guys have paid in Bangalore?

Also I am surely going to go for good accessories. Which are the good shops for bikes. My list is studded mud flaps, crash bars, leather side bags, windscreen etc. Guys help me as new to the bike scene.

Can anyone else confirm this? If this is true, it is great news. At the price you mentioned it sounds like a carburetted 500. Thank you for the update Manu, will go to the showroom to check it out and possibly switch my booking.

Most probably it is an unsold LB500. If the carbed UCE500 comes out, go for it. In due time, RE will introduce the carbed UCE500 as they have already gotten it endorsed by RTOs. And yes, the price of 1.25L looks like a perfect one for the carbed 500.

Cheers,

Jay

Okay, I am just all too confused now. From various threads on the new machines from the Enfield factory the waiting period is ?
RE CL 500 - >6 months
RE CL 350 - ? months
RE TB TS - ? months
RE EL TS - ? months (The new electra twinspark which is on the RE website now)

Can someone please let me know what the current waiting periods are for these?

CL350 - around 6 months
TB and Electra - around 45 days.

This is information I got from the RE dealer in Cochin. Apparently most Cl350/500s are being shipped to north india to meet demands. sob! :(

Believe me, they aren't. I haven't seen just one Classic in Delhi ever since it was launched.

Congrats Mate, All the best with last minute wait which will gift you with sleepless nights.

Also, was curious to know when you had booked your ride? That should help me prepare myself for the long waiting period.

Was too curious to know when this bull was booked, so went diggind around a bit on previous posts by Rajit.

7th Dec 2009 he had booked a Black CL500 with the Bandra Showroom. To your patience all the while Sir.
