I have a 2014 Royal C5 Classic. I am in Pennsylvania, USA. I have been riding for 45 years on many different brands of bike and 107 horsepower to 8 horse. This is my first RE. I studied at great length before buying. I recommend the same to anyone considering an RE. It has very little horsepower and as such is a disappointment to many bikers. This bike does not want to be rushed, raced, speed shifted, et. It is only at home on slower, twisty back roads at or under 100k or 55/60 mph. But at… Read Full Review

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

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

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

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

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

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
