#6 – Royal Enfield


The “Hennai Harley” might be, like the Ural, too truly cool to be derided as a hipster bike, but it’s blowing up on the hipster blogosphere. And why not? As we found out in our review of the Bullet, its retro presentation and manageable price point put it right in the sweet spot of the tragically hip and perpetually unemployed. Real riders know its reputation is iffy, but the brand’s trustworthiness has improved over the last few years. And besides, what does a hipster care for dependability when daddy’s got a sky-high credit limit?
