Sucks

4 years ago by Shrinidhi Rao49,042 views

If you are serious about going for weekend rides . Do not buy any royal enfileds

royal enfield sucks big time.

"Leave home" - but with a fear that it might stop anywhere .

Dont get me wrong , but royal enfields are the most unreliable bikes on indian roads.. Just because they have 350cc and 500cc engine doenst mean they are good .

I have a royal enfield thunderbird 2010 at home and i always get scared to go for long rides .

Its almost 3 years old now and run 45000+ km.

Speedometer cable keeps breaking , throttle cable keeps breaking very often 500-1000km , clutch cable keeps breaking every 100 -200 km ,oil leaks ,

tappet sounds ,

once my self start got jammed while riding from mangalore-bangalore . And it jammed the kicker too . I had to hire a tempo to get it across . I dont know if the designer was stoned or had a fight with his wife before he designed the system !!! .

Cant handle rains . The bike doesnt start once its drenched .

I can go on with the problems ..

Add all this and the amount of time you spend with a half knowledged "royal enfiled" mechanics . Well. Lets just say that this bike is just bull-shit! .

This bike is just not practical .

May be a good timepass , trying to fix it half of the year to go for a 100km ride, while you are getting retired and have a huge amount of money in your bank account to drain it on crappy parts for this bull-shit! .

Trust me .. I had better experince with my old yamaha rx-100 and old hero honda cbz .

Pros

only 350 cc engine which u get for this price

cons

most unreliable bike in india.

    I am using this vehicle since last 4 years but it is very pathetic to say that the brand value of this vehicle is very bad. During driving heavy vibrations lead to uncomfortable drive. Maintenance cost is very high. I don’t advise anyone to purchase this bike. It didn’t...

We brought you the comparison between the Avenger 150 and the Suzuki Gixxer SF a few weeks back (you can read it HERE). So, while the Avenger 150 is a new category for Bajaj to enter, it has been operating with the 220cc engine for eons. But, the motorcycle’s sales had...

The 250cc-500cc class is seeing a lot of excitement lately; mainly because of the number of models now available in this product category, but also because of their great pricing. All the noteworthy models are, after all, priced between Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 2.5 lakh. But...
