Is it just me or does this look like a mini Indian Scout

Verdict – The performance cruiser segment offers very little competition at this point as it’s coming only from Royal Enfield’s range of motorcycles. However, these bikes do outrank Enfields in terms of build quality and equipment but they just don’t bring the same appeal, finding themselves priced right between the classic 350 and Classic 500. So, if outright quality is what you seek then look no further. But if you’re more of a retro person who likes his motorcycle to come with a little history, then you’re probably better off finding value in one of the Royal Enfields.

Whichever flavor you pick, you won’t be disappointed

What’s Cool

* High revving engine and sounds good too
* Has a handy USB charging socket and pouch
* Bike feels agile and planted even around corners

What’s Not So Cool

* The rear brake feels spongy and the front lacks initial bite
* The NVH levels are not up to the mark of a quality built cruiser

Minimalist design works best in this motorcycles flavor
