    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ? Find out !!

    Royal Enfield is working on a parallel twin motorcycle and a multi-fuel adventure touring bike. The new Bullet 500 model will have a new, low price. And a kick start lever is coming for Royal Enfield C5 motorcycles imported to the United States.

    Royal Enfield's new CEO, Dr. Venki Padmanabhan made these revelations public at the New York International Motorcycle Show this weekend.


    Dr. Padmanabhan unveiled two new models there, the
    Classic Chrome and the Bullet 500. Both are based on the C5 with its unit-constructed engine, but the Chrome looks like the popular Deluxe model of old and the Bullet 500 looks like a throwback to the beloved 350cc Bullet in production in India for 50 years.

    Dr. Padmanabhan was very enthusiastic about Royal Enfield's future and its new, thoroughly modern but retro-looking motorcycle.


    "The only piece missing is that it is 500cc and I don't want to be getting on the expressway at 500cc. We are addressing that with a well thought out program. At the India Auto Show we announced the cafe racer, with 600cc, just enough larger. Now you're in the mainstream. We are working on a parallel twin that will bring back the idea of the Meteor and the Interceptor."


    A parallel twin rather than a V-twin, I asked?


    "If you come to the factory you will see unbelievably heated debate. Right now it's leaning to a parallel twin."


    A parallel twin would indeed bring back fond memories of Royal Enfield's powerful and legendary Meteor, Constellation and Interceptor motorcycles.


    "People will say this is exactly the Meteor, except it doesn't leak, it doesn't seize — all the old problems of British motorcycles — and you have modern fuel injection and so on," he said.

      Update that Series Mk.3 778cc twin engine that never made it past the prototype stage in 1970 with EFI, electronic ignition and spin-on oil filter. Stuff that into the Fury, the "Rickman Metisse"styled cafe racer, or the Bullet frame to make a "Meteor." Even better, build the Interceptor 3 with those updates and they will sell well. The engine always had the stuff for highway riding even by today's standards. It should be a winner. But please, let's see some photos now.
