The legendary hand crafted Bullet is now available with a solid single cylinder, 4 stroke, twinspark, air-cooled 500cc Unit Construction Engine (UCE) with twinspark ignition. This engine is mated with a 5 speed constant mesh gearbox.
The engine produces a maximum power of 26.1bhp @5100rpm and maximum torque of 40.9Nm @ 3800rpm. Twin spark ignition provides better combustion, better power delivery and improved fuel economy.
It is now available in an all new shade of forest green. The legendary Royal Enfield Winged badge in silver and gold dual tone livery is present in the big fuel tank.
Telescopic suspension with 130mm travel at the front and twin gas charged shock absorbers with 80mm travel at the rear. Bullet 500 comes with 280mm disc brakes with two piston calipers for assuring stopping power for the 19 inch shod with new MRF Zapper tyres for stability and sure shot grip on the road. This comes with an electric start for easy starting.
The headlamp is traditional but with a powerful halogen bulb to provide good illumination along with “Tiger Eye Lamps”. Riding posture is comfortable with long traditional twin seat with aesthetically designed new pillion grab rail with a cushion end. At the rear a vintage tail lamp assembly features a classic design.
Prices of the new Royal Enfield 500 Bullet have not been announced by the company yet, but it is expected to be above INR 1.50 Lakhs.
