Armed with a potent fuel injected 500cc engine and clothed in a disarmingly appealing post war styling, this promises to be the most coveted Royal Enfield in history. For those who want it all. The power, the fuel efficiency, the reliability and simple yet drop dead gorgeous classic styling. The classic turns heads not because it wants to but because it can’t help it. You will appreciate its beat not just for the sound, but also for the muted feeling of strength and power that it signifies. The view is simply better when you are astride a Royal Enfield Classic 500 – whether moving or still. Nothing more to be said.

Royal Enfields compared - Bullet proof

Which bullet would you shoot yourself with? Here are your options
Welcome to British Iron Roulette. First, a few facts: 1. Every two minutes theres a Bullet rider pushing his broken-down bike up a lonely road. 2. Theres usually enough oil on a Bullets engine for the USA to consider attacking it. 3. Bullets make their riders go weak in the knees – through endless frustrating kicks. 4. Contact Breaker points break more hearts than points. 5. Finding true happiness with a Bullet is like finding the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. 5. Bullet riders seem to find it. To them, its a fairytale that never ends.

The new UCE Bullets have been around for a while now, and are said to change all of this – except that last part, of course. The soul of the old engine without any of its quirks, its said. Change, it seems, is inevitable – even for Royal Enfields. Whats more, theyre even said to be reliable and easy to maintain. Naturally, die-hard Bulleteers are outraged at this sacrilege that makes life easier for them and attracts riders of other lesser motorcycles into their fold. I, however, welcome any change that makes REs easy to live with and decided to verify that claim. Why? Because a 75 350 has owned me since before I was born. Lets get down to the shooting, shall we?
