Royal Enfield Bullet 500
Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is a classic bike having vintage styling and striking. It is an environmentally friendly bike with lower emissions and increased fuel economy. The bike has hand-painted pin stripes, a 5-speed transmission, 7” double leading shoe front brake and dual seat further distinguish this model. The fact that Royal Enfield produces just few hundred bikes every year adds to its status as a niche two-wheeler. As the makers themselves say, it is a machine to aspire for.

Looks and Styling
The bike is available with an option of wind shield complimenting the grand presence of Machismo 500. Hand-polished aluminum castings and hand-lined gas tank accentuate its style. The bike has striking, one-color appearance with hand-painted pinstripes. Machismo 500 is available in only two colors, black and Alberto green. The bike pulls itself like a locomotive, in a smooth and linear manner. With an engine of 500cc, it is among the biggest two-wheelers. A bullet fan could notice more changes in the engine department than anywhere else. And the difference those changes make are felt when one rides the motorcycle.
