Rumors are rampant and include RENA wanting to have large Harley styled showrooms....but I personally don't think the brand will sell in quantites to keep a dealership like that open. The U.S. Is only like 1% of the RE global market. I traveled to Ohio last year to get 2015 C5 from Heindl - great folks and no regrets. Everyone is having to negotiate their dealership status with RENA though and like Urals, you have to want to work on them. Being a large single cylinder, things vibrate off and locktite is your friend. I am still breaking the bike in (RE forums recommend 3 oil changes first 1000 miles and STRICT adherence to the break in procedures and ridng speeds until broken in). I like the C5, but LOVE my Ural. There are others on this forum with way more RE saddle time than me.....They can add more as I am still a newb with RE. Fun bikes. If you post a "parts" question on RENAs website RENA is still forwarding the questions to Classic Motorworks asof last month. Classic Motorworks forum for RE is the "Soviet Steeds" of the Royal Enfield community and a great source of information.
