So my estimate is that there are less than 20 in the country.
I have owned the bike for 7 years and during that time have travelled about 40,000kms.
The Classic 500 comes with a fuel injected 499cc engine which offers superior performance to the Classic 350 in the form of 27.2 bhp of power and 41.3 Nm of torque. The bike is available in five colours The Classic 500 is the 350’s bigger brother which comes with the added advantage of a bigger, 499cc fuel-injected mill producing a massive 41.3 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.
54 years to the day the original Bullet rolled out from Redditch, Royal Enfield now has an all-new single cylinder motorcycle.Suspension consists of the same telescopic 35 mm fork and twin gas-charged shocks at the rear.Front brake is a 280 mm disc with twin-piston caliper while the rear wheel only gets a 153 mm drum brake. This, unlike the new Battle Green Enfields being sold today is a genuine Indian Army order bike.The distributer back prior to 2008, when these original models ceased being made, brought in about 3 of the Military bikes annually.
