1. Lack of Factors – Royal Enfield does not have essential features such as tubeless tires, tachometers, trip meters and fuel meters. All these features are now available in almost every bike.

2. Vibration – This bike vibrates quite a lot. If you go up to 80 km / h, then hardly you can see something in its rear view mirror.

3. Breaking System– Nowadays there are essential features like ABS (anti-lock braking system) in every bike and in the bullet, you will not get ABS and rear disc brakes. However, Now RE is relaunching many bike with ABS and Disk brakes.

4. Weight – Royal enfield bikes are quite heavy, because they are made of metal. If you have to push, consciousness will get worse. It has to put a lot of emphasis on setting it on the main stand. Because of this, bike mileage also reduces.
