2013 Royal Enfield Bullet Military Classic Battle Green Desert Storm Review

2013 Royal Enfield Bullet Military Classic Battle Green Desert Storm

The iconic Bullet has seen extended duty on several fronts and is now a prize for military enthusiasts and collectors the world over.

The new Battle Green C5 Military offers a distinctive vintage military aesthetic built around the rugged and reliable new unit construction engine.

New in 2012, Desert Storm joins the Battle Green Classic paying homage to the company’s military heritage. Both have bodywork and frame painted in matt colours with plain white badges, in contrast to the high gloss finish of the majority of traditionally styled models in the Royal Enfield range.

First introduced in 1932, the Royal Enfield Bullet has a long tradition of military service; thousands were supplied to the British Army and RAF for use by despatch riders during the Second World War. When updated for 1949 the Bullet was chosen for patrol duties by the Indian Army, a fact that has ensured its survival to this day.

Powered by the latest fuel-injected unit engine, with 5-speed gearbox and multi-plate clutch, the Battle Green and Desert Storm combine classic looks and sound with modern levels of performance and reliability thanks to front disc brake, gas-filled rear suspension, Avon Road Rider tyres, hydraulic pushrods and 12-volt halogen headlight. This package delivers enhanced performance and handling with reduced emissions and maintenance compared to the machines originally supplied to the armed forces.

The Classic Desert Storm comes to you with a “sand” paint scheme reminiscent of the war era, a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles proved their capabilities and battle worthiness by impeccable service to soldiers in harsh conditions of the desert. Donning a younger look with styling cues one would expect only from a genuine Royal Enfield: single cylinder air-cooled pushrod engine, 1950s style nacelle and toolboxes, traditional paint scheme and buffed engine components, this motorcycle is all set to bring you the pleasures of modern motorcycling while reflecting the aura of eternal classic styling.
