    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

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




    The 535cc Royal Enfield Continental GT Cafe Racer will debut in the UK this month, and in India soon after. Siddhartha Lal, CEO of Eicher Motors Limited is passionate about the way in which he has turned Royal Enfield around. Speaking on the subject with fervor and enthusiasm on India Business Report on BBC World, Lal goes back to 1901 when Royal Enfield was the most favored brand.


    The much awaited Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 aka Cafe Racer is looking ready to become the fastest-ever mass produced bike from Royal Enfield ever. The bike has also become the lightest production RE of recent times.

    The GT 535 will be built around a lightweight, double cradle frame that will help in keeping the weight under a check. The upcoming bike is expected to be as much as 15kgs lighter than the Thunderbird 500 TBTS.

    The Continental GT 535 will be powered by a single cylinder 535cc UCE engine that will boast of a bigger throttle body and a larger piston (than the 500cc UCE motors). The new 535cc mill will also have a remapped ECU and a lighter flywheel. All this would bestow the bike with enough juice to have a 150kmph-plus top whack and decent in-gear acceleration. The bike will be shod with Pirelli tyres and will sport a pair of Paioli gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear.




    As can be seen in the pics, the bike will have disc brakes on both the wheels. The upcoming 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 Cafe Racer, in all possibility, would be priced a little above INR 2 lakhs in Indian bike market. Stay tuned for more info on 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT 535 Cafe Racer India launch.

    Rumor has it that the bike will reach Europe and the US with a price tag under $8,000 (€6,070) and in case October proves this right, we might be looking at really nice sales figures before the end of the year.

    2. Andrew Said,

      Looks alright, be interested to see how it rides. Not sure I'd use it outside of town much with a top speed of 65mph unless you stick to small A roads and less.
