A showroom for the world’s oldest motorcycle.
The Royal Enfield Bullet is the world’s oldest motorcycle in continuous production since 1932, even if that production shifted from England to India in the ‘60s. And with the opening of a new showroom on Thonglor, it’s finally been made available in Bangkok.
At B179,800, it’s not only a rather cheap 500cc bike, it’s also one of the most authentically retro. For an extra B20,000, we’d pick the Classic Chrome model, a debauchery of shiny metal that harks back to motorcycles’ golden age; but cafe racer hipsters will swoon over the Royal Enfield Continental GT (535cc, B219,800)—just don’t expect to outrun any Japanese 500cc bikes.
