Well with the 2017 Honda Rebel 500 coming out, I can stick with Honda and get the kind of bike I want, not as powerful as a Triumph Speedmaster or Bobber mind you (and not like I have to jump onto a more powerful bike straight away), but Hondas are very reliable and that is a good selling point for them and also why I went for one as my first bike, especially if like me, a motorcycle is your primary method of transport and plan to get a decent amount of mileage out of it (I cannot drive a car, nor feel the desire to). I am not sure how reliable Triumphs are in general, but my brother and uncle haven't had issues with theirs yet (and get almost daily usage out of them) and some of them are very gorgeous bikes, I parked up next to a Bonneville T100 the other day and she was a beauty in person, I didn't expect to be the style of bike I'd like.
And the Street Twin our friend from Bangalore here will be getting, I imagine will be a great bike to ride and looks like a nice choice. He'll have to take pictures when he gets it!
With Harleys, I hear they have a reputation for not being very reliable but have gotten better in more recent years?
