True Gem !!

I bought 2021 Classic 500 in Military Green and have done roughly 8,000 km on it. Took it for a week-long trip with big Harleys and had no drama's keeping up with them. This thing is unbreakable and even if something does break, it is so easy to fix. Show details

Great machine. What lets it down. A lousy spare parts back up in Australia

The Enfield is in no doubt a great machine . What lets it down is the Australian parts supply. Lousy to say the least. Just dead ends. Enfield lift your gain. Show details

Best classic bike

my dad gave me this bike when i was only 14 years old to ride to school (was a spoilt kid), then I took this bike to world war second where british use to ride this bike for their dates. it was fun to travel by time machine as this bike took me around all the years of britishers in india

Yes you have it -

I have a new Classic 500 and due to being away from the bike world for some 25 years - the Enfield is very modern to me!!! Dual shocks, low down thumper torque and a riding position that in non foetal!!! I like to look where I am going - maintenance issues are nil compared to Yamahas of the 1970s - love this bike - Indians are great at quality hand made stuff - and the bike is "Industrial" as compared to modern hi tech brutal rev powered scream machines - so different - but so normal to me.

Back to the Future

I agree with Sarge on his realistic thoughts about the modern Royal Enfields (RE). I've owned a number of bikes, beginning with a Honda 350 Scrambler, then a Triumph 650 Bonneville, to a Harley Sportster, a Honda 450 café racer, then a Kawasaki 900 Spectre, a Harley Sportster 883, a 100th anniversary Electra-Glide standard (with a sidecar later), and now my 2015 RE Bullet 500 Classic. The Royal Enfield is a blast from the past, but without all of the maintenance (and possible headaches) of vintage bikes. A totally satisfying ride if your expectations are in-line with an updated, modern iteration of a motorcycle from the 1950s and 60s.

Perfect bike

Love it..

No problem..

Value of money, one should give it a go and experience it. Nice shape. Nice noise made by mufler. Comfortable and main thing is, it is stable while driving. Not a toy for beginners. . .

I would love to keep it with me.

Thank you

i am in the market for a enfield bullet 500, my only issue is, would the bike be to small for me, i am 6feet 2 inch tall and need to know if any other rider has thoughts on this?

probably not the ideal choice but if you really like the bike i think you could live with that. just dont expect a power house. its a fun bike with lots of character but lacks power

Anyone no who can set up a sidecar as mine is all out of wak or where to go to get it done?

Was warned against it as unstable and dangerous if your not an experienced rider which I'm not.

So have shelved the idea for now .

Most I have asked said to get the car manufacturer to fit.
