While I’m currently aiming for a scooter, most likely a Kymco Like 125, the Royal Enfield 500-cc motorcycle is my dream bike at the moment. It’s a retro cruiser, built and styled after my own heart. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it in an ad in Motorcycle Philippines.
This beauty has the following points going for it:
Of course, the Royal Enfield is not without its drawbacks. I’m not so naive as to think it’s a perfect bike.
For instance, spare parts would be quite rare, to say the least. Hard to find, expensive and all that. There is only the one dealer after all. It shouldn’t be all that bad though. I hear there’s an international club of Royal Enfield owners one could join and rely on for parts and advice. Still gonna be expensive though. But that’s to be expected. Big bike, big bike price, as they say.
And, as I have already mentioned, there is only one official dealer of Royal Enfield bikes and parts in the metro. It’s located somewhere in Makati.

If the shop’s still open in 2016 and I have the money for it, I’m definitely going to go for it. Of course, this is all assuming that the Royal Enfield 500-cc bike is still my dream bike when 2016 comes around. Nothing’s written in stone after all.
