Enfield Bullet 500

By Kevin Ash - 25/09/2012

Royal Enfield is launching a back-to-basics Bullet, designed to keep the Indian-made British bikes in touch with the low pricing bracket that they‘ve long been associated with.

The key selling point of the new machine, simply called the Bullet, is that it will retail for just under £4,000. This is £500 cheaper than the previously cheapers Enfield, the Electra EFI, and a full £2,000 less than the two-tone Fury EFI. The Bullet though still gets the latest EFI engine, catalytic converter and so on, so it will be much more everyday usable than older generation Enfields, and as such even competes with scooters as a left-field, low cost commuter machine, especially as it will be capable of 80mpg.

The bike will go on sale during June 2011 for £3,995.
