"Styled in the image of its 1955 namesake, Royal Enfield's latest 500cc Bullet offers riders classic motorcycling from a brand with a pedigree stretching back to 1901.

Valenced steel mudguards, hand-painted gold coach-lines on the petrol tank and side panels, and winged Royal Enfield badges mean that the latest incarnation of the Bullet, which has been in continuous production since 1949, could easily be mistaken for a restored machine from the 1950's.

​Like its predecessors, it is powered by a 499cc single cylinder engine with a bore and stroke of 84mm x 90mm.

However, the engine is Royal Enfield's new unit construction design, introduced in 2009, with 5-speed gearbox and wet multi-plate clutch, for fuss-free gear changes.

Brakes, suspension and electrical system have all been updated; the 280mm front disc brake provides reliable stopping power, gas filled rear shock absorbers give a smoother ride and the 12-volt electrics power the halogen headlight, indicators and starter motor. The Bullet 500 is one of the few modern motorcycles to give owners a choice of both kick and electric starting."
