Does anyone here have experience with or good knowledge of Royal Enfields?
I've read everything on their website and the brochures I have, but that doesn't really tell me how reliable they are.
What's their reputation? Do they break often or last forever? Can I trust it to be an everyday bike or do I needa Phd to own one?
I've read a few different magazines that have done an article about the new Enfields being built in India and they all say that they are really good machines. Would love to get my hands on one myself, I think they look awesome.
I have a 2000 RE Bullet Deluxe. It was stone cold reliable for years. It now has a charging problem that I cannot locate. I've checked every wire many times, replaced the stator, rectifier, regulator, battery... etc. Despite my current problems (which I believe are rare), I love the bike. I would recommend one. As long as you know which end of a wrench to hold, the maintenance is simple. Everywhere I ride it, people want to talk about it. One time a guy came into my place of work looking for "the guy who owns that bike out there" just to talk about it. I have a new V-Star and a 1978 Yamaha RD 400. But I most like riding the Royal Enfield.
Once again we find ourselves in the Classic/Retro dilemma. Threads like this should show that MC's occasional nod to the new retro bikes is justified.
Of the retro bikes the RE certainly has verisimilitude. It's 1955 technology preserved.
