– 2012 Royal Enfield Electra EFI / Bullet G5 Classic Review

2012 Royal Enfield Electra EFI / Bullet G5 Classic

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.

Based on the popular and well proven Electra, now with the all new unit construction fuel-injected engine, this is classic motorcycling with a modern twist.

The Electra EFI looks and sounds like a classic British single, but with a significant performance boost, excellent fuel economy and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

The Bullet Electra is a classic motorcycle, simplistic in design with a new, robust and reliable unit construction engine. Comfort takes a front seat with gas filled shock absorbers and a sub frame.
