Royal Enfield seems to be putting in a lot of efforts to update its entire product line-up to keep the evolving competition at bay in the sub-500 cc motorcycle segment. As reported earlier, the Royal Enfield Twins are set to receive a number of optional accessories which also include alloy wheels and now there are reports of the Royal Enfield Classic series getting the alloy wheels before the Twins do.

The spoke wheels are more durable and can be easily repaired as compared to the alloy wheels. But, the spoke wheels are shod with tube tyres instead of the tubeless ones, only a handful of high-end adventure tourers have the option of tubeless tyres with spoke wheels. Tubeless tyres are more efficient in long tours as the rider doesn't have to worry in case of a puncture.

In the Royal Enfield's current product line-up only the Thunderbird 350X and 500X are available with alloy wheels. Both the motorcycles are also available with spoked wheels. The tyres on the Thunderbird and Classics are same and this points to the possibility of Royal Enfield providing the same Thunderbird's alloy wheels on the Classic series as an accessory. This being said, we can also expect the homegrown brand to introduce more official touring accessories for the Classics, not to mention that Royal Enfield has already equipped the Classics with dual-channel ABS.
