– 2012 Royal Enfield Electra DL EFI / Bullet G5 Deluxe EFI Review

2012 Royal Enfield Electra DL EFI / Bullet G5 Deluxe EFI

Featuring a black and chrome tank with gold pinstripes and rubber knee pads, the Electra EFI DL captures the essence of the 1955 Bullet motorcycle.

Chrome mudguards front and rear, chrome tool box covers and authentic Avon Speedmaster tyres enhance the period appearance of this 500cc air cooled single and the impression of a classic British bike is reinforced by the exhaust note.

Just like its predecessors, the Electra’s engine retains the pushrod construction, with a bore of 84mm and 90mm stroke.

In fact this is a case of old meets new, because this is a brand new engine, with fuel injection and unit construction. Power is increased to 27.5 BHP, with 41.3 Nm of torque at 4000rpm, while the wet multiplate clutch makes the 5-speed gearbox a pleasure to play with.

The Bullet Electra Deluxe has the same elements of the Electra, but also features hand polished aluminium castings and a hand lined chrome gas tank.

Experience one of the greatest traditions in motorcycling history in a whole new way. The Bullet G5 is a completely modern, fuel-injected, lowmaintenance motorcycle built in the image of the world-famous 1955 Bullet.

The striking, hand-painted style of the G5 pops with vintage authenticity, but this is not your father’s Bullet. The all-new, fully integrated unit construction engine offers the latest in engine management technology for outstanding fuel economy, simplified maintenance, and higher cruising speeds.
