Royal Enfield Classic 500 or Thunderbird 500

27th Aug 2015 1:20 pm

Looking to purchase a Royal Enfield but cannot decide which one.

After years of progressing through a Hero Honda Sleek, a Bajaj Boxer, a Bajaj Pulsar 150 DTS-i and a Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-i, I finally would like to purchase a Royal Enfield. My options stand between the Thunderbird 500 and the Classic 500. I shall use the bike for commuting and long rides. I request you to kindly help me with my dilemma.

AAA We suggest you go for the Royal Enfield Classic 500, over a T’bird, as the Classic offers a more true retro experience, as well as better comfort and overall feel.
