Royal Enfield Classic 500EFI launched in India

November 4, 2009

Royal Enfield today launched the Classic 500EFI motorcycle in India, the first Enfield to be launched in India with Fuel Injection and also the costliest at Rs. 1,24,000 (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).

The Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 500 EFI is also the most technologically advanced motorcycle to roll out of the Royal Enfield factory at Chennai. Featuring a fuel injected, 499cc, single cylinder UCE (Unitary Construction Engine) four stroke engine. The Bullet Classic 500 EFI also happens to be the most powerful Bullet in production, producing 27.2bhp at 5250rpm and a whopping 41.3Nm of torque at 4000rpm.

The Royal Enfield Classic 500EFI also marks a shift away from the 19” wheels, which are common to all other Royal Enfields and sheds them in favor of the more generic 18” wheels, with the rear tyre now coming in a 110/90-18 size while the front one is shod with 90/90-18”.

Speaking at the press conference held in Delhi, Mr. Siddhartha La, MD and CEO, Eicher Motors said, “Royal Enfield has an extremely rich heritage of practical leisure motorcycling for a over a hundred years. At its core has been a harmonious integration of design and technology towards delivering excellent ride ability at all speeds and riding conditions.

With the Classic 350, we have have taken this ideology and refined it further to deliver a sublime and timeless retro-chic look with a highly responsive engine and chassis. This goes on to give the rider an exhilarating ride, regardless of whether s/he is going to office in the morning or for an adventure to the Himalayas or even around the world.”

“We will use this philosophy and the UCE platform to design and introduce a wide range of motorcycles over the next 3 years to span a variety of motorcycling genres such as classic sports, touring etc. The classic 500 and 350 are the start of a new era where Royal Enfield is creating an alternative language of motorcycling globally which is unhurried yet responsive, pleasing to all senses, highly practical yet emotional and romantic. Our passion is to build motorcycle that continue in the traditional of creating that special bound between a rider and his mare, which can never be replicated in a chariot.”

Although the Enfield 500 EFI has come to India a year after its European launch. we feel it is a step in the right direction and hopefully Royal Enfield would start launching new models first in India, after getting a good response for the Classic 500 EFI.
