The ergonomics is what suited me best being a 6 footer. No other bike I have ridden till now has that blend suitable for me as yet.

    I too fell for the ride quality and comfort. But I would suggest not to choose RE if you haven't own one. Regret is assured.

    It's a big statement to make.

    No doubt RE and Specifically the H has it's own share of problems, however they are working hard to fix for sure. They have been multiple feedback forums that have been set up. Infact i was called by RE for direct feedback, they even enquired for a video shoot.

    Think the BS4 variant has bedded down well with main issues limited to hard clutch and gear shifts. Rest look ok. I've done 3000KMS on my REH so far with no issues whatsoever. Maybe I'm speaking a bit too early, but the signs are good.

    REH is still the best bet for ride quality across all terrains at this price point.

    I back this.
    I own RE TB 500, And the issues started very next month of purchase.
    It's been 3 years living with the issues and high maintenance cost without a choice.

    If someone say that RE is working hard to solve all the issues and improve, don't believe them.

    My 3 old bike had fuel indicator issue, got it changed under warranty, afyer few days it started again on new console.

    Guess what, most of the TB had the issue and even on the new models they face this issue.

    Quite an improvement right?

    Simply stay away from RE if you need a peace of mind ownership. 🏻️

    Must be very Bad Luck.

    I've owned a RE Classic for 5 years without any issues. Forums like these highlight only the negatives and hence RE looks bad as a brand. Also all the experiences here are personal ones and may not be a true reflection of the broader story.

    RE sold 8.5 Lakhs last year and for sure not all of them had reliability issues.

    Not to argue here. Not sure if you had ridden any other branded bikes. I had used Bajaj discover, hero Honda cbz, Apache 160, unicorn 160 and finally hornet 160. None of these bikes had consistent issues. I stopped going to service center and not taking REH out in traffic. Will use it for highway rides for some more months and try to sell it off. My two lakh worth Non Reliable Enfield.

    People buy the bike just because it's an RE and then they realize about the issues.

    Most of the people buy it not to go for a long ride, it's just a show piece for them.

    I should say I graduated to an RE after owning and riding a Pulsar for 9 years and in between have used many other bikes. So I can fairly say that my personal experience owning/using different makes have been very similar. All machines are bound to have issues and different users have different experience.

    Only point here is that the positives are seldom spoken about whereas the negatives are always in the limelight.

    Each one to use their own discretion.

    Bashing RE is a trend now a days. Don't waste your energy in defending it. You have a very good bike ride it and be happy.
    Also, you open any ownership thread, you will see lots of people complaining about their bikes, but never report if that issue gets corrected/rectified.

    I own one (classic 500) ridden 56K KM and very happy with it. Will ride more 45K km (Target 1 lac KM).
    Let people talk shit about the bike but I are happy to ride it.

    Regards
    Mandar
