Royal Enfield 500cc Vs 350cc - which one is better ?
« on: September 03, 2012, 09:34:37 AM »
Hi, I always wonder which bullet is better , 350cc or 500cc ? I know the mileage of 350cc is better than 500cc but who will care about mileage if they are riding a bullet. I hardly see 500cc bullet in Indian roads but if you search online , most of the time 500cc bullet is preferred and sold abroad. Do you feel more power or extra 150cc in 500cc Royal enfield  is worth ?

Buy 500cc if you are looking for more power and torque, it is also more suitable for long cruising. You can actually feel the power if you drive 500cc bike, there is also some sentimental advantage when you are riding and 500cc bike over a 350cc. And yes, the more power in 500cc is worth if you have money to spend.

For me the 350 cc itself gives me good vibrations and literally shakes me a lot. After a long ride, when i switch over to other Jap bikes, damn i cannot feel whether even the engine is running or not.  500 cc would be too much to handle. Maybe i must try newer REs. Lets see...

Well, may be you are talking about thump and that is what gives you the rush of adrenaline , I think 500cc would be better as I think I feel running out of power after reaching 80kmph in current bullet.
