Continuing with our coverage of retro motorcycles (click), here’s another beautiful retro bike that looks like it came out of the post-World War II era. The Royal Enfield Classic 500 reminds us of the cliché “good ole days”, without the mechanical problems associated with the machines from that era.
The Royal Enfield Classic 500 packs all new technologies that maximize the amount of time spent riding instead of the bike being worked on in the shop. The bike is powered by a 500 cc fuel injected 4-stroke single-cylinder engine that’s air cooled. The engine produces only 27.2 bhp at 5,250 rpm and 30.46 pound-feet (41.3 Nm) of torque. The power is miniscule compared to vehicles we normally cover here at First SuperCars but this motorcycle is not meant to break any speed records, still, it can reach a respectable 80 mph top speed.
I really like this bike, it has a very simple yet sexy design and in the world of crazy horsepower and lots of carbon fiber add-ons, it’s refreshing to see some manufacturers going with a minimalist approach to their product line.
