Royal Enfield to launch Bullet 500 in India


Royal Enfield is all set to launch the Bullet 500, a 500cc version of the company’s most popular motorcycle, in India in the coming weeks. The company has set up a teaser page on their website (link), which offers a sneak peak of the bike, rendered as a cartoon caricature. The bike is aimed at hardcore Bullet fans who crave for a more powerful version of the iconic bike. The Bullet 500 will be powered by the same engine as the Classic 500, and will be offered in Black and a new “Forest Green” shade, with the same hand-pinstriped tank as the 350cc version. Although Royal Enfield has not revealed any date for the launch, the bike is expected to be unveiled to the public by the first week of April 2013.
