Royal Enfield New Bike Line up
« on: April 25, 2014, 09:57:05 PM »
About a week ago I placed an order with a dealer for a 2014 G5, a day or so ago the dealers called to inform me that the G5 had been discontinued. To buy a 2014 G5 one must locate a dealer with one in their current inventory.

I am very disappointed.

Sorry to hear that.
 Have you considered a B5? They come in Black and Forest Green.

There is a 2014 or 2013 new G5 Chrome at Strokers Dallas. They will ship a bike anywhere in the continental US for about 700 bucks. Its just like this one http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/G5Deluxe/

Its going for something like $5399.00

Here is the link to the exact bike. I have a G5 and I love it.

I live in south central Tennessee. I have checked with several dealers within 350 miles without any luck on a 2014, I did find a new 2010 in Alabama not much of a savings over the price of a 2014. I have found several C5 Chrome bikes that are 2012 and 2013. The B5 will also be considered.

The Classic 500 aka C5 is a great motorcycle. I just like the larger frame and standard two up seat of the G5. I do see that they are only making the G5 in the deluxe model with chrome tank and fenders.

Get any Royal Enfield and you will get noticed wherever you go. My Royal Enfield G5 has frequently received more notice than motorcycles that cost 3 times as much.

+1 to that!

I prefer the B5 because it looks more vintage. The C5's are beautiful bikes, but they do not look like British bikes from the '50s to me. I got mine in green, which looks very close to British racing green.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

The Daily Rider in Burlington, VT had a new 2012 G5 Deluxe chrome earlier this month, as well as a a 2012 C5 military, both priced at $4600 OTD (except tax).

I own a pre-owned 2010 G5 Deluxe, & love the 19" wheels & exceptional finish details. If they discontinue it, it may hold its value better than the others. I'd encourage you to find a DEAL on a leftover new one. Even with the extra shipping, you won't be disappointed.
  You could also Check Storm Seller Ural & Enfield in fort worth area, Nice people.

I have located a new left over G5 at a reasonable price.

I do have one small problem, I will need a refund of my $1000 deposit before being able to purchase the left over bike, the salesman I gave a deposit to is not returning my calls forcing me to contact the dealership owner to get a refund of my deposit. One should not have a problem such as this as they cannot provide me with a 2014 G5 because production has ceased. The refund should be automatic.
