“As you would expect”

Written on: 15/04/2012 by SlyDixon (1 review written)

Constant winging from people who expect these basically nineteen fifties machines to perform like modern bikes leaves me scratching my head. If you want to drive at 75 to 80mph on open roads then look elsewhere these bikes will simply turn to automotive muesli. However for a 50 to 60mph back road plodder then you're in the right market. That said you can cheaply and very entertainingly hot these old machines up and the very reasonable initial costs makes this viable. I have a 350 version in… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/05/2011

I bough my 2000 iron barrel 500 used, with only 10.000 on the clock. A big box of spares and a full history completed what i thought was a bargain...
3500kms later, the box of spares is nearly empty, and the new engine is also broken..I have to say to begin with, to clear up any misunderstandings, i am used to classic engines of all sorts, and i do not heavily modify engines nor race..I am a mature driver. But the engine was defective when i bought the bike, it finally gave up 500kms after… Read Full Review

Surely this is not a fair comment on the manufacturer but of the previous owner(s) and the condition of the machine when this reviewer bought it. Buying second hand gear always carries a risk - particularly with motor vehicles where poor maintenance and tampering with mileage records is not unheard of.

I had a Royal Enfield Electra which is the newer verson of the older Royal Enfield. It was junk too.
Pulled the top off the piston and wrecked the engine at 10,000 Km. Bought the bike for 7,000 Australian dollars and after the engine blow up I sold it for
1,400 Australian dollars to a wrecker. The worst motor cycle that I ever owned.

Written on: 20/01/2011

Mine has been a great bike after it had about 2000 miles on it. Up to that mileage it wasn't really broken in and I was still learning how to tune it and service it myself. I used it to ride to work every day for 2 years, rain or shine, which was a distance of 25 miles round trip. I never experienced any problems the entire time. I have done a few performance upgrades to it over the 17 years but nothing major. It still has the original piston and rings. It is a 1994 model which were lower… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/03/2010

I have owned a 500 bullet for ten years and it has never let me down. Although the build quality is poor you can modify it no end to your standard as spares are cheap and plenty,and everything is so simple to work on. I love the relaxed sit up and beg ride it gives it is ideal for back road exploring but not what you would use on long motorway journeys (not for fun anyway)It has been used to travel all over the Scottish highland at a speed you can enjoy and not loose your liscence which I would… Read Full Review

I own a Enfield bullet of model Electra 5S.I am really disappointed to have such a poor service delivered by Royal Enfield. Since i have been calling all the Royal enfield service centers just to get a spare part(Side mirror) for the past three weeks and get an reply"order has been placed" kindly call us next week.

I just have three questions to ask.
Do you really produce spares for bullets?
Is this the way you treat your customers who have invested almost a lakh for a bullet?
If so, what is… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/06/2008

The history of this bike is quite amazing, a real classic 1950s bike made up until 2008. Unfortunately emission laws have finally killed the classic Bullet but that does not stop my glowing recommendation of them. I've owned my Classic Bullet 500cc for a few years and it has provided me with nothing but enjoyment. I've learned about motorcycle maintenance, and I truly feel comfortable riding a machine that I know how to work on. A well taken care of Bullet will reward you in many ways. This is… Read Full Review

I agree with this review because... I also had engine trouble from the start. My bike was plagued by "wet-sumping" and leaks which led to it's demise. Customer service and warranty were insufficient. I wasted enough money on this bike to have had a sporty.

The Royal Enfield 18 HP 350 is a Smother Happier Bike than the 500 (22 HP) I Find. Available Now in a Fair Few Styles & Extras (Electric Start, Modern Brakes). However the Standard is the Best Romantic Bargain. (& The Home Market India Models are an Even Better Buy, But can be a Bit Rougher Round the Edges.& Slower. I ride One & It's Great!) Official Imports Get you a Twin Leading Shoe Brake,& a Better Finish. All Basic Bikes Return about 75MPG, Are Happiest at Sub 60MPH Speeds & are Great on… Read Full Review

Wanted a Goldstar in your youth but couldn't afford one, don't worry buy a Royal Enfield Bullet... 50 years of continuous production. It's the real thing. A serious 50's long stroke thumper that will turn heads, it will not pull a 10 sec 1/4 mile only 25HP. This bike will make you smile from ear to ear. Not afraid to twiddle your own spanners, this bike has your name on it… Read Full Review

Bulletjeff's Response to 200821_royalsampath's Review

Written on: 13/01/2006

Royal Enfields are definitely not for weekend riders, they are for devotees and enthusiasts. A Bullet is not a motorcycle it is a way of life, a hobby, a bike to ineract with, to get to know intimately and ultimately to love for its quirks as well as for the feeling it gives when you and your best friend are on the road. This is one fun bike.
<br>
<br>Do not buy a Bullet unless you are prepared to work on it, in fact, don't let anyone else do any work on it except for the engineering stuff. If your tool kit is a mobile phone and credit card then get a Japanese bike or a Harley. A Bullet will teach you more about motorcycle mechanics in 1 year than a "modern" bike will in a lifetime (and save a heap of $ as well).

Widowspeak's Response to 200821_royalsampath's Review

Written on: 21/03/2007

I agree with Nikeam. I own 5 Royal Enfields and not had any trouble from them. My 500 has been with me through some very long trips and it never let me down, believe me there were times when I rode it really hard. On the other hand I have seen these same motorcycles give their owners a hard time and in most cases those owners expected these motorcycles to perform like a Japanese sports bike. Big mistake. The bike turned around and kept kicking them really hard.

Nikeam's Response to 200821_royalsampath's Review

Written on: 22/06/2006

Objectively, Royalsampath bought the wrong machine. A Royal Enfield Bullet is all about understanding - if it leaks oil persistently, is unreliable and generally unsatisfactory it is because it's not getting the correct attention, even being abused. Big singles of the 50's and 60's vibrate as the rev range rises-fixings inevitably loosen off and should be checked periodically. I bought a Bullet because I know I can maintain it. It sits firmly on the road and is comfortable over distances. It was not designed to sit on endless ribbons of tarmac at a constant 70 mph and I therefore avoid dual carriageways and motorways. On single carriageway roads, 60mph is the limit and is well within the bike's stride. I like to see the front wheel "tap on the spot" on tickover, the ease with which it glides on to the centre stand and especially, the long, slow swing that always fires it up. I believe Royalsampath's bike was like a young terrier pup - not house-trained or given firm instructions as to acceptable behavior. If my bike could speak, I expect it would say "what can I do for you next, my friend?"
