New Battle Green colour for Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 500
For 2010 the Royal Enfield Bullet Classic will be available in a Battle Green uniform in tribute to the manufacturer's long association with the Indian Army, which dates back to 1949. With bodywork, frame and wheel rims painted in matt green, the Battle Green model offers a distinctive vintage military aesthetic, but is in all other respects a modern motorcycle for today's roads.
Powered by the latest 500cc fuel injected engine that was introduced in 2009, the Battle Green Classic produces 28bhp with 41.3Nm of torque @ 4000rpm. Along with the new engine the Classic has smaller 18” wheels (compared to the previous 19” size) shod with Avon Road Rider tyres. This package delivers enhanced performance and handling with reduced emissions and maintenance compared to the machines originally supplied to the armed forces.
Demand for Royal Enfield motorcycles is so strong that the factory has announced plans to double production, with progressive increases in capacity over the next three years, allowing the brand to continue to keep pace with the brisk sales of its new model line. Output is forecast to grow from 52,000 motorcycles this year to 70,000 units for 2011, reaching 90,000 in 2012 and finally 100,000 units or more by 2013.
The Battle Green Bullet Classic can return up to 80mpg and retails for £4895- on the road, with a 2-year warranty for peace of mind.
