    Default Royal Enfield Bullet Classic 500 in Battle Green Colour: xBhp News



    Royal Enfield has released a new battle green paint job for the Bullet Classic.

    In a tribute to the firmís long association with the Indian army, the bodywork, frame and wheel rims, are painted matt green, giving the bike a vintage military look.


    However, despite its vintage look, it is powered the firmís latest 500cc, fuel-injected engine, producing 28bhp.

    The Battle Green Bullet Classic retails at £4895 with a two-year warranty.

    This color is for "exports only" market.

    In India this color is for the armed forces so officially it won't be sold for the general public.

    at least RE India website doesn't show it.

    Maybe it was a custom painted. Also, the used army bullets are available for sale from scrap markets.

    Classic 500 Battle Green and Classic 500 Chrome were unveiled at the Auto Expo if I'm not mistaken. RE officially issued a statement saying they were going to launch "a number of models" based on the new UCE and EFI platforms that they have made standard now. But Battle Green being outlawed by RTO (I'm pretty sure of this), I don't think RE can sell them in India, and hence the "export only" tag. True, that there are many Bullets in Army colors, but fact is, its against the law.

    And like I had posted somewhere before, there's no point showing us these beauties and not ramping up production. Its just pure heartache to wait 10 months for your ride.

    Classic 1950s styling, traditional paint scheme and buffed engine components, design cues expected only from a genuine Royal Enfield
