Buffalo ki eye. Pehle aati to yahi leta par ab nai dulhan to talaak de dena? Itna bhi zalim nahi hun... Some other time...


Saw it today at RE showroom,it comes in two colors,black and Bottle green.
Priced at 1.39L ex shwroom,that is 9K cheaper than basic classic 500.It was standing along a chrome and desert storm.
Must say it was looking too dull,and RE has stuck to 120/80/18 for the rear tyre.
RE Had 535 CC Engine earlier with face of RE Lightning ... I don't know if RE will come up with another engine of "535+1=536 CC"](*,) in near future.

Apart from engine capacity, nothing is similar to the older engine.

As far as coming out with a new engine goes, that is pretty easy, especially in the case of RE, who outsource their engine development to AVL.

Real challenge is in coming up with a chassis to complement it, retooling the factory to produce and ultimately, creating a target market for the bike (which I guess would be ready to pay close to Harley Davidson price for a Royal Enfield).
