Both are British bikes, but not the same.

Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Chrome


Triumph Bonneville


Leo38 gets the Oscar.

Before anything else, the pin striping on the tank is a dead giveaway for being an Enfield.
Hand painting by only 2 guys - father and son.

Just to play the Pedant....... I believe you're wrong.

When the started reproducing the bikes in India, they had to be renamed. Since they no longer had the Royal warrant, the could not use the name Royal Enfield, and became Enfield India.

So Enfield, yes, Royal Enfield, no.

Which is why I said "I believe", rather than just a straight "you are", because I was far from certain.........


I was going off of memory, where I remember there was an issue when Enfield of India began selling bikes in the UK in the Eighties............According to Wikipedia they bought the rights to the name "Royal Enfield" in 1995, and you know Wikipedia is never wrong, so I must be!
