2013 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 B5 EFI Review

2013 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 B5 EFI

Built in the image of the legendary iron barrel Bullet 350, the Bullet 500 embodies the the rugged simplicity and timeless style the made the Royal Enfield Bullet popular across the world for more than 50 years.

The Bullet 500 combines Royal Enfield’s most iconic model with its robust and reliable new UCE engine to create a modern bike that brings simple pleasures back to motorcycling.

The Bullet 500 EFI is the culmination of over 8 decades of legacy, of the longest running model in continuous production. Since 1932 the Bullet has mesmerized thousands all over the world with its unique styling and one of its kind feel of ride feel. The Bullet 500 EFI is a seamless pairing of the majestic Bullet styling, performance and reliability with the new technology elements like the Electronic Fuel Injection synergized seamlessly with the period styling.The Bullet 500 EFI is all about romancing with history on today’s terms.

Styled in the image of its 1955 namesake, Royal Enfield’s latest 500cc Bullet offers riders classic motorcycling from a brand with a pedigree stretching back to 1901. And with frugal fuel consumption of 80mpg running costs are modest too.

Valenced steel mudguards, hand-painted gold coach-lines on the petrol tank and side panels, and winged Royal Enfield badges mean that the latest incarnation of the Bullet, which has been in continuous production since 1949, could easily be mistaken for a restored machine from the 1950’s. It even runs on Avon Speedmaster tyres. Like its predecessors, it is powered by a 499cc single cylinder engine with a bore and stroke of 84mm x 90mm. However, the engine is Royal Enfield’s new unit construction design, introduced in 2009, with 5-speed gearbox and wet multiplate clutch, for fuss-free gear changes. The traditional chrome silencer contains a catalytic converter, so the Bullet 500 meets tough Euro 3 emissions regulations too.

Brakes, suspension and electrical system have all been updated; the 280mm front disc brake provides relaible stopping power, gas filled rear shock absorbers give a smoother ride and the 12-volt electrics power the halogen headlight, indicators and starter motor. In fact the Bullet 500 is one of the few modern motorcycles to give owners a choice of both kick and electric starting.
