Royal Enfield, makers of legendary British Classic bikes, are back in Cologne, Germany to unveil their all new “BULLET 500″ at the Intermot.
In 1932, the Royal Enfield “Bullet” was originally created in Britain. Now, 76 years later, Royal Enfield’s newest model celebrates these early “Bullets”. The new “Bullet 500 Classic” harks back to the ‘G2′ Bullet of the early 1950s, retaining the quintessential classic British style that is inextricably linked to the Royal Enfield name.
The new “Bullet 500 Classic” is powered by the new 500cc ‘Unit Construction Engine’ (UCE) and is homologated for Euro III norms. The 500cc engine produces 27.2BHP of power at 5250rpm and 41.3NM of torque at 4000rpm. This new model is expected to be in the Europe Distributors showrooms by January 2009 and should be launched in India by end 2009.
