I bought a new leftover 2012 C5 Bullet earlier this year in chrome/black for $2,600 OTD tax and tags included. I wasn't looking for another bike but it was so inexpensive that I had to buy it. I rode it for a 1,000 miles and sold it for $2,500. What I found in the 1,000 miles:
-My RE was comfortable w/o any crazy buzzing or weirdness up to 75mph indicated (all she'd do with my 240lbs atop her)
-This bike was made to terrorize 2 lane back roads at or around 60mph handled well and braking was sufficient.
-At the price I paid the bike was a good deal. They are not even remotely worth at or near current MSRP.
-Royal Enfields are very frustrating to sell. The key demographic is folks from India. They seem to be exceptionally frugal group of folks routinely offering 75% less than the asking price and then they get offended when you do not accept.
Only reason for selling is in the spring I decided to sell of at leas 50% of my heard and the RE and at least 4 Guzzi's made the cull list. In the end I would not hesitate to own another but it is prudent that you ride each bike and access it individually. It is not uncommon for two of the exact same year/model bike to feel entirely different. One might have exceptional buzzing at or near speed the other can be smooth as silk.
