Ya'll Nibbiars in India the Yezdi carries more Premiums and is more famous.

Royal Enfield Meteor has a killing look. Royal Enfield is all about the style and durability. At one point of time, its owner had decided to shut the factory but his son decided otherwise and made it a world class brand.

Per se, RE is not a global brand. If it was to be considered than Bajaj & hero too export to africa and are global brands.

Style, I agree. Thats their selling point. Durability .. Not sure ...

rest, Sid lal have done a awesome work in reviving the brand and bringing it to where it is now. Kudos to him.

Perhaps .. none of the bikes age well except for Japs...

I agree, I was gunning for The Meteor 350. I still do believe that they aren't there yet. The CB350 RS I rode (took a test drive) is probably the most comfy ride I felt after a very long time. My only personal peeve about it is, its top end is really too long, why not add another gear to break the very long top end as a 6th gear. That would've been made to a almost perfect ride.

My dream bike though is the Enfield Interceptor 650 twin. Its just not built for the cities, rode my friends bike, had a hard-time pushing it into traffic, its heavy man.

Manageable, I would say you would still feel the weight, but cruisers were never meant to, you know corner clearing. Meteor 350s mid end is what you would love in the cities or twistiness.

However, I would prefer CB350RS on the twisties because of the better gripping provided by the rear 150 section tires and somewhat useless but still working Traction control. I mean it kicks in at those moments when you know, that you fucked up, but never once when you boast about it in front of your chaps, and you make a fool out of yourself. :daru:
