Few motorcycle brands can claim as ancient a heritage as Royal Enfield, founded in 1893 in England before turning Indian in the 50s. As a result of this unusual migration, Royal Enfield motorcycles have survived looking very much like they did decades ago­—a very, very good thing in the retro and café racer era of today. There’s a Thai facebook page, now promising it’s going to bring these mythical beasts to Thailand. The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome 500 is scheduled for this month and priced at B255,500.


The Yamaha SR400 is one of the most loved retro bikes in Thailand. It’s cheap, it’s readily available and it’s easy to customize. Unfortunately, the bikes, first launched in 1978, are often old, beat up, and missing proper registration documents. The SR revival caught Yamaha’s attention and they’re now re-releasing the bike. Priced at B265,000 and available in black or white.
