Default suggestion needed in owning royal enfield !

Hi All,

I am from india,I am hard core enthusiast of royal enfield bikes and planning to own a royal enfield .

I am at the crossroads unable to make a conclusion between RE classic 350cc & RE standard 350cc

my area of concerns are:

1. thumping beating
2. stylishness
3. maintenance
4. breaking, gear, lighting and clutch system

Note : I don't mind about the cost, but i have to make a choice one among them. I Kindly request the people who are really owners of RE bike or mechanics or the analyst about the bikes to give a good suggestion?

Awaiting for the quick replies from u.

The new Royal Enfields are completley different than the older pre-unit design. The new 350cc is unit, with a different oiling system, an Indian copy of a Mikuni Carb, and a better electrical system that uses an alternator instead of a generator like the Bullet. If it we me, I'd get the 350 with the TT/Scrambler kit, high alloy fenders, an up-pipe and stiffer fork springs & alloy gas tank. They've worked the bugs out of the old design by getting rid of it. The 350 should be a reliable, fun bike.
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
