There's alittle more to it. Look at the RoyalEnfield website. They raised the compression ratio and more. I looked at one of these and they really cleaned the motor up. The older versions had nasty motor castings. It prob would make a good cruise night and around town bike. It does cause alot of conversation.

I'll take a pair of Continentals. Who want's that V-twin crap that Ducati sells (sport classics) when you can get a genuine "thumper" with so much history behind it.

Sadly, those of us in California are denied the unmistakable joys of Enfield ownership... whatever they may be. No Cali dealers. Probably doesn't meet CARB emissions regs.

The Classic in British Racing Green would be my choice. Imagine a motorcycle that has the name "Classic", and it actually is. The cafe kit looks pretty cool also.

The Continental Kit is totally cool!!! If I weighed seven stone less, one would grace mt garage tomorrow. I do not think I have seen a ride that oozes tradition more than the Continental.



Well, maybe triple the horsepower and it could move me along.

I've got a nice SR500 that would make a great big brother to this thing. The Continental Cafe version would be a proud addition to my garage. Of course, I could make my SR look just like it but spending a bit of cash at the Thumper Stuff website.



If you really do want to ride one of these things and don't wimp out and get the electric leg, pay very close attention to that starting drill. It works but it takes practice. Write it down and follow it religiously until it's burned into your brain.



And DO go ride one of these things. You'll soon realize that there IS a replacement for displacement. Then go join the FSSNOC and get their "SSBB, TWMMTG" tee shirt. It has to do with sucking and squeezing.

"Is $4,995 a good price for a motorcycle with less performance than a 250 Vespa?"



Well considering a modern 250 Vespa costs upwards of $6000, yes I'd say so. The motorcycle is still a more versatile mode of transportation than a scooter.

This is the Ducati 999 of India. The people who own them are at once envied and considered foolish as a bike with so much power and poor gas mileage has too much money for their own good.

Very diggable for nostalgia -- especially the GT500, Continental and classic, but besides the Vespa people mention, you can grab a Virago 250 for half the price and plenty of looks.
