Full Review

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 .
