Review: 2013 Royal Bullet 500

They say it’s like a gun, but goes the stuff that comes out of it. It is own world renowned classic Earlier it was only available in But now it is also available in Forest Some call it Royal

Most of us grew up calling it a

Now though, there’s a new Bullet in And instead of the 346cc motor, it is by a new 499cc unit construction For the uninitiated, the UCE engine was Royal big step into the future.

It signified the end of the cast iron with its separate gearbox. It a gearbox that was integrated the engine as a single unit and the conventional left side

The new Bullet 500 uses the same that has previously seen use on the 500.

Where bike does score is comfort. Compared to the most Royal Enfield that we the seating is less confused. we did feel that the Bullet was a sprung for a comfortable city

Visually, the bike still true to the old Bullet. It still has the pinstripes on the tank. It still has the eyes. And it still uses the coke bottle seat.

it does get, though, is a back rest for the pillion. But at Rs lakh (ex-Delhi) it is quite an old, I mean new bike. But again, I guess the people who buy are not the ones looking for a value for deal.
