But here in the States there is quite a push to retro vehicles. Ford and Chevy have been capitalizing on it since Chrysler come out with eh PT Cruiser a few years back.
check out www.royalenfields.comIt shows two RE C5's with kick start listed for sale in Torronto.
Well I gotta say that a malfunctioning starter/clutch cutoff circuit has just fried some wiring for me and disabled the bike. It's now in the shop. So much for the e-start reliability argument. I want the message to get throught to India that they STILL do not have Jap-bike reliability, and need the darned kicker in the bike. That argument is a total fantasy.
I have the 2009 G5 and had problems with the starter solenoid,it was about two months before I got it fixed.I was quite happy kicking over.two kicks cold, one kick warm,I,m sure I would have had problems bump starting, I would have thought it was important to fit one on the C5 during manufacture
