Royal Enfield’s new creation, Bullet 500, is being launched in India. This new classy bike is powered by carburetor instead of EFI.
These new change has made Bullet 500 UCE a little lower in price as compared to EFI series, and it has reduced the cost as much as 10,000/- Rs , but the total price of the vehicle on road is yet to be announced by the company. This classy beauty comes with a whole lot of new features like it comes with not one but twin piston calipers, which means the bike will be able to generate more torque and that means more stopping power, electric start, a new design of the winged badge on the tank, a longer comfortable seat, and new to-hold railings for the pillion rider. The only disappointment is that this bike is available in only one color i.e. forest green.
The bullet with a history of making heavy bikes is no exception in this case and the new bullet 500 weighs at 193 kgs. The single cylinder 499cc engine which produces 26.1 BHP of power at 5100 RPM and 40.9Nm of torque at 3800 RPM. When it comes to styling, the bike is inspired from Electra 350 or the Standard 350, which the Bullet fans love the most.
Many complaints were recorded from Royal Enfield owners regarding Keihin Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, which cannot be relied upon. This new introduction of carbureted version by Royal Enfield will eliminate the dissatisfaction among the new buyers. This may also increase the sales as those who are backing the purchase because of the cost can now afford it as the new carbureted engine is slightly pocket friendly.
Royal Enfield, a Chennai based company, is working hard to meet the customers demand by improving the quality of their two wheelers. The company is having high pressure on its shoulders as it has to meet the increasing demand of its bikes as well as to launch Continental GT Café Racer by this year end.
