  1. I seriously don’t understand why the Enfields are selling so much in the market as 80% of the online reviews are against them. The reason for my question is because I am looking to buy a bike and I have (or rather my father) my eyes on Thunderbird 350. I would have bought it by now but due to so much negative reviews I am little bit scared.
    Are Enfields overly criticized by people or are they truly junk as said by those 80% reviews ?

    1. If you are looking to buy a bike with a performance, good looks, quality stuff then Enfield is not the one but if you are die hard fan of RE and are okay with average performance, looks and quality then RE should be the choice.

    2. Believe the statistics…..
      If truly it was pain riding Enfield vehicles then why everybody would buy it…
      Enfield bikes are good go and take it… YOu will experience the charisma of riding it

    3. @jitin, this might be a little late info for you. Buying a royal enfield bike depends on what you want from it. If its speed and performance you are after, then RE bikes are not for you. They give lot of problems, quality wise. But are comfortable for anything below 80kmph with 2 up. I own a 2014 thunderbird 350 its only strength is its old school looks and the low end torque which helps in slow riding. But mind it that the engine heats up like an owen when you are in stop go traffic for more than 15 mins. Since its air cooled engine it needs to keep moving to be cool. With the increasing traffic in our roads, its likely that the bike will face lot of engine issues due to overheating.loose valves, weaker bore and throttle response would be the result. Check for other city friendly bikes in the 150cc segment which are particularly less expensive than this bike and are peaceful to maintain. The current lineup of 150cc bikes can do what all the RE 350cc bikes do with a slightly lower amount of ride comfort (not a deal breaker though). Maintenance wise they will be lighter on your pocket and you will be able to save some money for a better bike or a car or for something important. Support me in YouTube @ “maverick rider jb”.

  2. Suzuki intruder is the 150 cc version which is not a performance motorcycle. Please correct it.

    Performance motorcycle selling 3.7k units in Indian market will be a record.
