Enfield Bullet Addendum
Royal Enfield's USA importers wanted to let you know that the Sixty-5, while a good example of the Indian company's products, is an older model that has been supplanted by some newer additions. Of particular note is the Electra, which for an extra $100 gets you a front disc brake, swoopy '70s styling and a different seat. Is $4,995 a good price for a motorcycle with less performance than a 250 Vespa? It depends on what kind of performance you're looking for. If you're looking for authentic mid-century British thumper performance, this is a GSXR-1000.
If the 1970s are too modern an era for you, Enfield offers a full range of accesories -- including the disc brake kit -- to dress your thumper any way you choose. Be sure to explore the website and check out all the kits, including Gabe's favorite, the Continental Cafe kit which includes all the stuff to make your bike an authentic mid-50s cafe racer for just $2,683.
Thanks for stopping by. Now strap on your pudding bowl, finish your cuppa', and go ride!
