I’m confused between Honda CBR150 and this bike. I hate this situation

If you like trips & enjoy riding go for RE or if you’re a sport lover go for CBR150.

If you you are a kid who would like to play with funky plastic toys…..Go for CBR
If you are a Man who want some serious ride…Go for this.

An opportunity to give TB a true cruiser look with high rake front fork, low slung profile, is wasted. Classic 500 plonked on current TB with costemetic embellishments. Not really exciting.

Woooooooooowwwwwwwwwwww. Double disc brakes, fuel injection. Excellent. But I am damn sure that the waiting time will be more than a year. :-(

Too much unnecessary power and pricey with high maintenance cost with low mileage. TB 350 is more practical approach then this behemoth. Great bike that is NOT FOR EVERY ONE.

I’ am a long time reader mostly Deepak’s blog…however bit disappointed on his words missing here…RE is true machine having enough guts that can only be afford by people who were very particular on this brand. Apart from this general rumour, I personally suggest that anyone can easily cruise this beautiful monster. Since, I use to be pillion rider for more than 23 years with a known feeble spongy driver and a silent dragon. That’s my mom and her RE 500cc Classic…

engine displacement sounds good….definately would have been a winner with wider front tires(110-120) & wider rear tire(140)….Royal Enfield manufacturers should bring these change in their upcoming models…am a great fan of Royal Enfield & I personally had two Bullets…now left with one though & hope to buy a 500cc Classic someday but only when the tires are switched to wider ones…please
