A few months back Bullet lovers were dissappointed at the demise of the most powerful bullet, the Bullet 500. Royal Enfield had stopped production of its 500 C.C "Cast Iron" engined Bullet. Bullet lovers can now rejoice as Royal Enfield has relaunched the Bullet 500 by replacing the previous "Cast Iron" engine of the 500 with a new "Lean Burn" Aluminium engine similar to the Bullet Machismo 350 albeit with a higher capacity of 500 C.C.

>>The Bullet Machismo 500 LB is "made to order"

>>Only 500 motorcycles will be manufactured in a year

Yesterday, I had been to a bullet showroom in Bangalore to inquire about the New Bullet 500. The salesman there confirmed the launch of the Bullet Machismo 500 and gave me a leaflet which contained infomation on the new bullet. The leaflet has been scanned and posted below.

Few things to note...

According to me "Only a Bullet Chooses its Owner" and not every biker is worth his salt to own a bullet

  • The Bullet Machismo 500 LB is "made to order". That means you have to especially place an order to get one.


  • Only 500 motorcycles of the Bullet Machismo 500 will be manufactured in a year.


  • The Bullet Machismo 500 LB is the most costiliest production motorcycle in India. It is priced Rs. 1,12,000 on-road in Bangalore..!!


  • Accessories include Twin Spring Coiled Seats, Windshield, Custom Crafted Leather saddlebags by "Hidesign".. All at additional costs

Many "Desi" bike lovers complain that there are too many models similar in looks, engine displacement and power in India which doesn't offer them exclusivity. With only 500 motorcycles to be produced a year and with the largest displacement and the most powerful engine being produced in India, this is an opportunity to those forever complaining types to get exclusive.

But I still have doubts that Royal Enfield will be outright flodded with advance bookings for the Bullet Machismo 500 LB. According to me "Only a Bullet Chooses its Owner" and not every biker is worth his salt to own a bullet.

But for those who wanted to own a Bullet 500, Royal Enfield now gives you all the more reasons to buy one for yourself. But you will need to have deep pockets and have to be a die hard Bullet enthusiast.




P.S: Test ride of the Bullet Machismo 500 LB will be published in "The Bike Chronicles of India" soon..
