Actually I am reviving a dead thread! I have been averse to Enfields for long and have always relied on Hondas for my daily commuting. But Royal Enfield Continental GT Changed that for me; The bike is coming with newly designed by Harris Engineering Chassis, Brembo brakes, Good quality Italian Piaoli Shock Absorbers at rear, Pirelli tyres, Tachometer, FuelGauge, Aluminium wheels, quality paint job and all that chrome.
We in India are not getting Street 500 but Street 750. Now this very Harley after a recent test ride seemed to be Banglored Harley to me! Low quality indian vendor i.e. Endurance brakes that lack bite, front forks and rear shocks that are good new and don't know how these would perform in long term again from Indian vendor. No Showas or Sachs here! And worst are the MRF tyres that lack grip for which dealership is quoting a price of Rs 20000; compared to that SuperLow tyres- Michelin Scorchers cost Rs 30000 at dealership with all that Harley Stamping and comes with high speed rating.
