So, has Enfield improved their quality and reliability, yet?

I would love to own one. If the quality isn't improved, then I am still too mechanically stupid to own one.

I'm so glad they're finally available in California. The price seems reasonable, and allegedly the quality is much improved. 80 mpg sounds pretty good. 27 horsepower sure ain't fast, but they'd probably make cool little retro commuters. It's interesting that they're being sold at some scooter dealers.

I've ridden a few of the current Enfields and they are certainly entertaining for what they are- a glimpse into the past with some modern features that will hopefully make them reliable. I would love to see the UK- only "Fury" version make it to the states. With the current interest in cafe style bikes the Fury would be well- received in this market.


Thanks

I sort of like to futz around with a bike some, so my slightly older model fits me perfectly. Here in th4e mountains, it's my favorite bike. I wouldn't want to drone on a freeway, though.
So -for me- the new Bullet is just a little too >cough< bullet-proof. I've heard mostly good things, though.

The nfield forum is an EXCELLEnt resource. Those interested will get a lot of opinions and info here;
Royal Enfield U.S. Community Forum - Index

Being trained to use pictures whenever possible, here's what mine looks like currently. It's not exactly stock, however...




OH- by the way; No offense, but I think the Fury is a visual monstrosity. It's also discussed some on the forum.
