Royal Enfield Classic 500 Review
Known for its old school design, Royal Enfield made no change with its image of making vintage looking bikes.
The classic 500 gives the same world war II looks and but the overall features are in complete harmony with the new technology.
With a trusted engine of 499 CC which gives excellent torque of 41.3 Nm at 4,000 rpm, the bike is all you need to have a pleasurable ride. But after you cross a speed of 80 kmph, there will be vibrations which may be a negative point for some.
The bike saves you from the discomfort of riding over potholes and with the spoke wheels you don’t need to worry about the bad roads.
The design makes sure you enjoy every bit of your ride regardless of whether you are riding on mountain tracks or on the highways. With the low fuel light and 13.5 liters fuel capacity, you can completely trust the model for your long rides.
Only things that can disturb you are the vibrations produced at high speeds and the heavy weight of the bike which make it a bit difficult to handle at the corners. But overall, if you ride it for fun, enjoyment, and pleasure, you will get all of the three.
Altogether, though an expensive purchase to make, you won’t regret the expense when you get the amazing experience and pride of riding a Royal Enfield Classic 500 bike.
