Royal Enfield Bullet Electra 5S

Royal Enfield Bullet Electra 5S
Royal Enfield Bullet Electra is a burly vehicle. A new version of Bullet Electra, it flaunts great looks with a teardrop fuel tank that can store 14.4 liters of fuel. The clunky lid adds style to the bike. The steely body with some pretty colors adds some nice contrast to Electra.

Looks and Styling
The bike comes in sparkling new dual-tone paint. Though the profile borrows heavily from the old Bullet, the multi- reflector equipped lamps add modern touch to it. There are more improvements like ribbed PVC shrouding for the wiring harness that replaces insulating tape and a more perceptible tail-lamp.

Control and Comfort
The bike is equipped with gas filled rear shock-absorbers which enable Electra 5S to tackle potholes effectively. Glass-wool-fitted silencer in the bike reduces heat transmission. Vutting edge features such as 5-speed gearbox with left gearshift, push button start, and a Digital Transistor Coil Ignition make it a better riding experience. Electra 5S has innovative features like 5-speed gearbox with left gearshift, push button start, and a Digital Transistor Coil Ignition. The gearbox sports closer-packed internal ratios due to the new cog, with the fifth gear ratio remaining identical to fourth gear on the previous bike.

It has new left-foot-operated heel-and-toe gear lever, which was on the right side in Electra. The ignition system is transistor coil-actuated, while starting the Electra has now become easier due to the self-starter. The bike has tall 19-inch rims, and a long 1370mm wheelbase. Straight-line stability comes naturally to Electra 5S. The friendly riding position has adequate room for heavy as well as tall riders. Gas filled rear shock-absorbers enable the bike to glide smoothly over potholes. The motor has been retuned to make it environment friendly.
