Not too sure if this is the correct forum to start this thread. But as I could not get any relevant information with regards to the Bullet 500, I am starting this thread.
Please merge this thread with any available options.
From my school days, I have always liked and loved the Royal Enfields. Still remember the time, when our neighbourhood uncle used to come back from his office, and we used to know about his arrival much before we could see him. Yes, it was the thud, that gave him away. Back then, owning a Bullet meant many things, depending upon the perception. For someone , like my mom, it is the bike of the milkman. Yet, for others, it is the bike of the "policewala". Whatever be the choice and the image it had, Royal Enfield, is always Royal. The name itself has the royal-ness in it. Don't you agree? Offcourse owning one at that time was never possible as it was a strictly "no-no" motorcycle. Though much later I did come to know, that dad also likes the Bullets...
Fast forwarding to my college days. The dream of owning a Bullet was still there. But managing petrol bills from Pocket money and after having heard from various sources, of Bullet being a Fuel Guzzler; the intention still rested in dreams. Nevertheless, out here in the streets of Pune, whenever I have seen a RE moving by, Eyes would have definitely darted off the road just to catch a glimpse of the beast in motion.
A few months back I came to know that Bullet 500 is going to launch in India. The excitement again started. Though other options were already available from the RE stable, yet owning a 500 CC beast, in itself is commendable. Hence started the much awaited follow up in various portals, updates that are available from Google, referring to tBHP portal, for any new updates... Sooner (though at that time it seemed to be ages), the beast was launched in Delhi, Chandigarh and Chennai.
Convinced wifey to go for this (After all, home minister's approval is always required ) and finally made the booking at Brahma Motors on the month of June 2013. The most important news is that I just have received a call from the Brahma Motors, informing that the Bullet 500 is going to be launched in Pune on tomorrow, that is 30th August 2013.
After dreams and ages, I see my dream coming true. I would like to share the same experience with all of you. And therefore I am starting this thread. Please share you opinions about the Royal Enfield Bullet 500. I would keep this thread updated with regular updates as received (as the expectation has increased manifold)
Best regards and safe driving.
