Bullet is the oldest motorcycle in the Royal Enfield lineup. First introduced in 1931, the Bullet has been in production ever since. Originally launched with a Cast Iron engine, the current generation of Bullet has been upgraded with the UCE (Unit Construction Engine) engine in two displacements - 350cc and 500cc. The design has largely remained unchanged with subtle refinements.
19-inch wheels with optional front disc brake.
The Bullet is a quintessential Royal Enfield with an old-school and simplistic design. The headlight is round with a basic looking instrument console. The handlebar is a single-piece unit followed by a teardrop fuel tank and it gets a single-piece seat. The rear is finished with a round fender with a classic tail lamp. All bodywork is completely metal giving a long-lasting and a sturdy appeal to the build quality.
The Bullet offers a comfortable riding position with an upright posture and a wide handlebar. The footpegs are set slightly forward for better comfort. The suspension does a fine job in tackling rough roads and provides a stable ride. However, the front forks do need an upgrade.
The Bullet comes in two engine options - a UCE 350cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which is capable of producing 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm and a 500cc unit that generates 27.2 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine is tuned to deliver more torque in lower rev range.
The Bullet comes with a 5-speed manual transmission with a slightly close gear ratio. The setup enables for relatively effortless acceleration in city traffic. The clutch lever is light contributing to the ease in riding.
The standard Bullet comes with drum brakes at both ends. However, there is a front disc brake version as well.
Bullet's new UCE engines are said to be better at managing fuel and hence delivering better fuel economy compared to the older CI engines.
