2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500: AN ICON SINCE 1932.
Introducing the 2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500.
The longest running motorcycle model still in production. You want history, you got it.
What started in 1932 continues to deliver pure motorcycling experiences across generations of riders. Bullet, the quintessential Royal Enfield, is today the longest running motorcycle in history to be in continuous production. A unique, hand-painted fuel tank, the distinct thump and a standing testimony to Royal Enfield’s philosophy of simple design and resilient build make Bullet a living legacy on two wheels.
The new Bullet 500 is essentially the motorcycle with the timeless iconic handcrafted design of the legendary Bullet now powered with a solid 500 cc Unit Construction Engine, superior power delivery and improved fuel economy. Now technologically equipped with modern advances in engineering this motorcycle still maintains its impeccable lineage it has withheld for decades altogether. The iconic Bullet is now available in an all new shade of Forest Green with the same aristocratic livery pinstriping now in a silver finish symbolic of automotive royalty.
The Royal Enfield Bullet is the standard-bearer of our 117 years of motorcycling and our longest running marque in continuous production. In service for British forces in World War II and for the Indian Armed Forces today, the Bullet’s distinctive engine and presence continue to forge a legacy of endurance.
Here’s professional trials rider Johnny Brittain winning the Six Day Scottish Trial on a Bullet in 1957.
