2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 [Model Overview]

2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500

2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500

The Royal Enfield Bullet began life in 1932 and has been in continuous production right up to the present day. No other motorcycle in the world can boast such a feat. While other motorcycles have had to continuously evolve to stay relevant, the legendary Royal Enfield Bullet has managed to stay in the game without having to endure any real modernization, and that’s what makes it so appealing to riders.

Armed with a basic 499cc single-cylinder twin-spark thumper, the Royal Enfield powerplant is almost exactly the same now as it was back then. There have been some tweaks, and some improvements, such as the addition of electronic fuel-injection and the practical electric starter, but not much else has changed. There’s 27.7 horsepower on tap, with 30.5 lb-ft of peak torque available. It’s not a performance bike by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s not meant to be.

Instead, it’s a symbol of a simpler time, when motorcycling was about freedom and adventure. The way that Royal Enfield has kept true to its roots, whilst bringing the Bullet 500 into the 21st century with things like disc brakes, is admirable and something to be treasured.

If you want to book a seat on the nostalgia train, the 2020 Royal Enfield Bullet 500 will cost you $4,999. It’s only available in Jet Black in the USA.
