2012 Royal Enfield Motorcycle
Originally from Great Britain, and now made in India, Royal Enfield is a modern classic that takes the “classic” description more seriously than any other brand – only recently has the engine gone to unit construction and received fuel injection.
Other nods to modernity include a front disc brake and electric starting. The vintage look is matched by the visceral feel of the ride and leisurely engine performance, thanks to an 8.5:1 compression ratio.
The C5 is also available in Military and Desert Storm trim ($100 more), as well as a Chrome version ($200 more, shown above).
