The 350 cc "Bullet" by Royal Enfield still has drum brakes.

It's made to be inexpensive so it markets well in less affluent areas. Drums, particularly mechanical ones, are simpler and more easily repaired by a guy under a tree.

this is true but Drums on their own bring the suck. my pan when I first built it had just a mech rear drum, didnt take long to add duel disc up front.

Drums alone do suck. This is why pretty much anybody who hops up an older car converts them to discs as well. It is why I've idly contemplated putting discs on the rear of my XJunk, though not that seriously.

The only vehicle that I've owned with rear drums that had good brakes was my '08 Silverado. You would have never guessed that it had rear drums.

I don't know much about motorcycles, but I've never seen on with drum brakes. Even my MTB has hydraulic disk brakes.

75% of stopping on a bike is generated by the front brakes, rear drums aren't that big of a deal usually.

I don't like those kind of bikes so that explains it. I would like a BMW touring bike though.

Yeah, I figured that out years ago when downhill MTBing.

This is also why I've seen cars need new front brakes at 30-50k miles while the rears last to almost 100k.

OTOH, when my fronts are worn out on my WRX, the rears are about there also.

the awd and perhaps traction control play a part in that?

Cars used to be like that, but modern TC, stability control, and ABLS systems limit that. Especially, on trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles. On my Xterra (~45k miles), my rear brakes are more worn than my fronts. A lot of that is attributed to my driving style.

My car's "traction control" is a good old fashioned limited slip in the back. AWD only has an effect on propulsion unless you consider compression braking which doesn't use the real brakes. With the differential action in the middle, any effect by the AWD on my brake life would be eliminated unlike perhaps in the XJunk which has no center diff.
