Royal Enfield has a special place in the heart of motorcycle enthusiasts. It is an age old company with a longest manufacturing running still now on the roads. Every motorcycle has somewhat similar retro style but different due to various features. Till now, they have released RE Bullet, Classic, Himalayan, Meteor, GT and Interceptor. It has simple construction yet strong bullet spare parts which led performance excel at par. Moreover, you can easily modify it single handedly with little efforts. While planning to buy Royal Enfield you must consider few pointers before picking it up from the showroom as it can make or break your deal.

Here is all you need to know before buying a RE motorcycle.


Although it is common to see many enthusiasts taking their RE on the streets for style and roaming around, but this bike is made much more than this. It can achieve up to 130kmph. However, for mature riders, RE will get along with you for decades if you are just not a speed freak and stay intact with speed not more that 70 to 80 kmph. RE Bullet and Classic is a perfect example of it as with 350cc and 500cc engine, both bike works well on highways as well on city riders even with frequent stoppage.


Even though owing to its sturdy and heavy build, RE is a style statement and get along on roads quiet well yet it is advised do not try to corner on Royal Enfield. It has a foot pegs directly attached to the frame and sometimes crash bar which can touch the roads while cornering. Still if you corner too hard, there is a potential danger of rear wheel contact the ground resulting in crash causing severe damage. While touring does wear bullet accessories such as Helmet and other safety wears for rider safety.


Undoubtedly, Royal Enfield is a heavy motorcycle. For instance, even RE Classic model which is of 350cc can weigh up to 195 kg and if we look at RE Interceptor it can go up to 202 kg. It can be sometime tedious to handle RE in heavy traffic, yet for most part it is smooth to drive. However, the trouble can come if it falls. It takes tremendous muscle power to lift it back and that too with attention as if not done correctly it can hurt your back.

ABS and navigation

Unlike past, new models of Royal Enfield are now equipped with ABS features for safety reasons. ABS generally uses speed sensors on both wheels to determine its speed and also to lock the required wheel. This ensures stability in motorcycle and also prevent wheel from locking. Also, all new Meteor 350cc is equipped with Navigation system too which you operate from Royal Enfield app. It has dedicated 'tripper pod’ which has semi-digital instrument cluster with analogue speedometer on larger pod  and then LCD display for fuel-gauge and then odometer, trip meter, service reminder, clock, and gear position indicator on the smaller one.


While you have range of Royal Enfield to choose from but it is advised to buy accordingly to your suitability. As a first buyer or beginner it is advised to go for RE Classic and Bullet, however for touring on tough terrains it is perfect to go for RE Himalayan as they are specially designed to traveling. It is also recommended to add Bags and touring seats available with uncountable manufactures for added luggage space and comfort which is imperative while going farther distances. GT and Interceptor with 650cc engine best in all terrain and is a powerful bike with exceptional features.

Beside this, Royal Enfield is currently planning to launch it another version of Meteor with 650cc on which enthusiasts has glued their eyes on. Always this company comes up with astonishing features making it distinct from other bikes in the marketplace. So, if you planning to purchase a Royal Enfield always look for practical as well style outlook.
