In the view of the upcoming BS-VI norms, discontinuing the sale of Bullet 500 and Thunderbird 500 is being touted as a right step by Royal Enfield.

Amid diminishing sales of the Thunderbird 500 and Bullet 500, Royal Enfield has decided to discontinue the models from the online booking page on its website. The Classic 500 is the only 500 series model that is available for purchase.
Besides, the new 650 cc range, which was launched in November 2018, have been accounting for a decent share of sales. The company has recently introduced the new BS-VI Classic 350 at a price of Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom) in the domestic market. However, the Chennai-based two-wheeler brand has not started taking online bookings for the BS-VI Royal Enfield Classic 350, which features new colour options.
