Royal Enfield Bullet Electra X 500 cc in black (first registered August 2007)

Unlike the current models which have had to change to EFI to meet new emissions regulations, this is one of the sought after models with a carburretor, and the AVL ‘lean-burn’ engine. As a result this model is the best of both worlds, as it has the more original technology, but is a very reliable and economical engine. It has the modern control layout with a 5 speed gearbox on the left, and has the benefit of electric as well as kick start, and the front disk brake.

Most of these bikes are in plain colours, but this one has the very attractive chrome and black colouring. The petrol tank is chrome with a black central band down the top, (and gold ‘Royal Enfield’ lettering and detailing), and this was an expensive option when new.

From new this bike has also been fitted with Hitchcocks’ Electra X Stage 1 performance kit, comprising of an upgrade to an Amal carb, conical air filter, removal of PAV, sports exhaust pipe, and ‘Goldstar’ type silencer, plus the larger 19T gearbox sprocket. These proven and sensible upgrades result in much improved performance, faultless reliability, and over 80 mpg.

The larger gearbox sprocket means it cruises much more comfortably and the overall result is a far superior bike to the standard one. The exhaust pipe is fitted with an 50’s style finned alloy cooling ring (again from Hitchcocks’), and the silencer has a removable baffle which alters the exhaust note from a deep thud to a more raspy metallic sound.

The standard kickstart lever gets in the way of your right foot while riding, so Hitchcocks’ upgraded ‘bottom folding’ kickstart lever has been fitted which means your foot can fit comfortably on the footpeg when riding. A nice chrome disc holder has also been fitted.

The only common problem with these bikes is that they are prone to failure of the ‘Sprag clutch’ – meaning no electric start. This problem occurred with the bike early on and so it was repaired under warranty by Royal Enfield, with the upgraded green TCI unit fitted at the same time, meaning that this won’t happen again with this particular bike.

This bike has a low mileage of 3941 miles (may increase slightly with use), has been regularly serviced, and is garaged and used on dry days. This bike is immaculate and has never been damaged in any way. It comes with both sets of keys and the original owners manual, plus Pete Snidal’s respected workshop manual on CD Rom, as well as the original Royal Enfield toolkit in the side panel.

Also included is the original silencer, kickstart lever, and gearbox sprocket.

As it has current MOT and Tax the bike is ready to ride away, and these bikes are ’33 bhp legal’ as well. Insurance is very cheap, and with the amazing mpg this bike is about as cheap to run as they get. The bike sounds wonderful and always attracts comments.

I am a member of the owners club and will be very sad to see it go, but have a genuine reason for sale.
