The Royal Enfield Classic 500 Stealth Black variant borrows the swingarm from the Royal Enfield Thunderbird. The bike features a 240 mm rear disc with a single calliper as well. There are no changes to the front brake, as it uses the same 280 mm disc with two-piston calliper. The bike does not have ABS.
The motorcycle features matte black finish on the frame, fuel tank, fenders and side boxes. The matte black exhaust and bend pipe get heat-resistant coating. The spoke wheel rims and hubs come with black powder coating. The single piece seat is draped in black leather with black stitching. Similar to the Thunderbird, the Classic 500 Stealth Black also features engine casing in matte black colour.
Mechanically, the bike continues with the 499cc single cylinder engine with fuel injection. The powerplant punches out 27.2 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 5-speed transmission. Suspension bits include 35 mm telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. The front wheel is 19-inch, while the rear is an 18-inch unit. A 90-section front and 120-section rear tyre wrap the spoke wheels.
