2017 Royal Enfield Classic 500 Review

 

2017 Royal Enfield Classic 500 on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

 

Heritage and horsepower…

 

Armed with a potent fuel injected 500cc engine and clothed in a disarmingly appealing post war styling, this promises to be the most coveted Royal Enfield in history.

 

For those who want it all. The power, the fuel efficiency, the reliability and simple, yet drop dead gorgeous classic styling. The classic turns heads not because it wants to but because it can’t help it. You will appreciate the beat not just for the music it creates but also for the muted feeling of strength and power that it signifies.

 

The view is simply better when you are astride a Royal Enfield Classic 500 – whether moving or still. Nothing more to be said.
