    I accept this. The Fiat and Enfield connection is some what true in India. I'm riding Thunderbird for last four years and I'm a die hard fan of Enfield from my childhood. In car part, I used Maruthi 800, Ford Ikon. now I'm driving Fiat Linea for last one year. The only car I fully satisfied is Fiat Linea.

    The connection between both Enfield and Fiat, that I feel are Stability on the Road & Perfect Braking

    I think more than FIAT, Enfield and Mahindra is a dream combination.
    Both have macho looks, huge fan following and niggles...

    I wanted to own a bullet, already booked it (CL500), but may change the booking to TBTS 500.
    I am planing to buy a Mahindra Thar Crde next year...

    Perfect braking-Fiat-I agree.
    Royal Enfield-Hell no-Own 3 RE's, a 35 year Old Standard,2000 RE Machismo and Latest being CL500 Chrome,and i can say with eyes closed,Royal enfields all of them have pathetic brakes,infact i rode the New TB500 few days ago,the rear disc brake is as good or bad as a drum brake.

    Got a Linea\CL500\Scorpio Mhawk SLE(A Thar would have been better though).

    Driving comfort that Bullet provides is unmatched. Even from my school days, I used to dream of owning a Bullet. When the time came to buy a two wheeler for office commute, Bullet was the first machine that I had in mind. My close friends pulled me away from Bullet saying it will be difficult to manage in crowded Chennai traffic, and pressurized me to buy a Unicorn, being from Honda. I ended up buyimg a Pulsar 150. I think Pulsar is one bike with very low cost of maintenance.

  10. I Owned a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra 07 for almost 4 years, I sold it last year & now I have already booked a Punto MJD. According to my view there can be a correlation between Bullet Enthusiast & Fiat Enthusiast, Once you drive a Bullet, you'll forget other bikes, Bullet is known for its solid built, Crusing Ability on long drives, power & torque feel. No other bikes running on Indian road comes close to a Bullet on the basis of the above attributes. I know one thing that if in future I want to buy a bike, it has to be a Bullet because the overall feel of the bike is too good.

    Whereas, Fiat cars have a Solid built, Comfy Crusing ability on the highways, Produces good power & torque & are best looking cars. Once you drive a Fiat, none of the other cars present gives you a good feel like Fiat.

    Once a test drive a Gp MJD, I was not impressed by any other car. (Swift,i20,Polo,Figo,fabia & micra)
