Recent reports suggest, a bewildering increase in illegal sales of second hand Royal Enfield in Kerala. The Motor Vehicle Department reported that these kinds of illegal activities are particularly increasing in Kochi where the demands for old models of Royal Enfield are considerably high. The whole issue came to limelight when a customer went to the RTO for re-registering his second-hand bullet and found out that he has been tricked by the vendors. Kerala Police has traced the investigation to the Karnataka State and received an official statement confirming the mishap.
The report further suggests that Bullets from other states were stolen, chassis number and number plates altered, NOC and other documents were illegally made and sold out through local dealers in the state. The Kerala Police has tightened up the search to catch the culprits and the department has already started an investigation against a local second-hand two-wheeler dealer located in Kochi.
Second-hand bike buyers are advised to buy bikes from trusted sources only. Buyers should be aware of the credentials of the seller. The buyers should thoroughly cross-check the information presented for the bike and must make sure all the paperwork like NoC (if buying from other states), ownership details, RC book and other associated details are legally obtained and are valid before the purchase to avoid legal complication and financial loss.
