Saw a Royal Enfield stand in Tesco Lotus Superhighway (ground floor) this week, nice bike but not sure I would pay 186k for one.

The tariffs in Thailand are just too high.  Better buy one and drive it from India.  Dealership I went to said as much.  They also sold a locally made / branded bike with a Chinese engine which was more affordable.  Thailand is no fun in this regard

How would that help with the high "import tax"   unless you don't import it but then the bike has to do a visa run every few months ???

Well since Ducatis, BMW, Triumph and Harleys are made here, why not RE? And which Thai people are you calling greedy and sloths? Be good to know exactly where your racist rant is directed.

Thais aren't a race, they're a nationality.

Sorry. I don't understand.

# Royal Enfield prices here are similar to the UK, the US and Europe and Australasia.

The only place where they are markedly cheaper is in their home country, India.

# The above first post - you are not very genned up on personally importing vehicles into this country and the beaurocratic and financial nightmare involved.

# Ditto same post, The Chinese engine locally made model was/is a completely different genre of model compared to the RE, and hence incomparable.

# 2nd post above - perhaps English is not your first language, because i did'nt really understand anything you said in that unintelligeable racist rant.

Certainly nothing in there about motorcycles....

I suggest you look up the difference between a Royal Enfield motorcycle and a Lee-Enfield rifle.  Here's a clue: One goes broom-broom and the other goes bang-bang.
