Royal Enfield is a brand known for making low powered cruisers which double up as everyday commuters. The company sells around 70,000 units each month because these motorcycles look retro and have a classic bike charm to them. Moreover, these bikes project themselves as big and tough but they ride slower than a 125 cc TVS Victor. That’s exactly what makes them sell so much, Royal Enfields are those bikes which are easy and safe to ride and they give you the appearance of a seasoned rider by overshadowing your riding speed with it’s classic and retro look.

Apparently, it wasn’t the preparation of bike which took so much time; it was all the confusion in the showroom. Anyways, showroom services are a talk of another time; let’s get back to the bike.

It is a cruiser, it has a low slung seat, front set footpegs and raised handlebar. This bike doesn’t seem like a half-done job, it rather feels like the perfect piece of the puzzle, which got overshadowed by a bike out of place and meaning.
