The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is based on the Classic 500 with a rather generous dose of chrome on it. Like the Classic 500, the new Classic Chrome retains the quintessential classic British styling of the 1950s: simple, harmonious, well proportioned. The Chrome sports a seat with a leather finish and adds to the visual appeal of the motorcycle. Built of old-fashioned metal, in clean elegant lines of Chrome combined with a rich paint finish the design of the Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is a tribute to the retro look of post war British motorcycles.

Jumping onto Royal Enfield's latest chromed slug, designed to replace the Machismo, this Bullet feels fast right from the word go. The Classic Chrome 500's acceleration is punchy with the torque coming in a torrent, so much so that whipping open the

After travelling for 30 KMs the bike broke down again in the evening. I called the RE guys again and they took my bike today for checking what went wrong. They did not do the complete check up before delivering and just... Read More

So far no complain, its running smoo... Read More

Nice attractive bike. Amazing speed and handling, poor electricals and shabby stock battery. Too much vibration and at times the view mirrors are useless due to the heavy vibrations. Fuel economy arnd 31-35 depending on how you handle it. The fuel tank is just 13 ltr. Seat is painful considering if you are doing long rides.
