Full details

Essential elements of a big formerly British Single. The Beat as Royal Enfield calls it is that sound that booms out as if emanating from the bowels of the Earth.With the modernized fuel-injected unit-construction engine with maintenance-free hydraulic lifters and redone frame gives this motorcycle much more reliability and sure footed handling. The Classic is not fast, but the heavy flywheel and good bottom-end power make it pleasant to ride.Click into fifth gear on the road and it feels like five decades ago; cruising under 65 mph gives just enough space between combustion events and is one of the simple joys of motorcycling! Nationwide Delivery, 12 Months Road Tax, £99 + VAT UK Delivery.

Royal Enfield Electra EFI (2008-current)

MCN overall rating rating is 3
Owners' overall rating rating is 3.5

MCN review overall verdict:  "This new version of the Enfield Electra may look the same, and to be fair in alot of ways that count it is, but in fact it features an all new unit construction engine with fuel-injection, dragging it kicking and screaming into this century to meet Euro 3 emission laws.

MCN review overall verdict:  "Early models of the Royal Enfiled Bullet 500 weren't very well made and you might be better off finding a 2000 onwards example of this classic Brit single, now made in India. There have been many variants of the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 produced by the UK importers, from cafe racers to sidecar combos, with the Clubman GT offering the..."   Read full review

Royal Enfield Bullet Electra (2004-current)

MCN overall rating rating is 2
Owners' overall rating rating is 4

MCN review overall verdict:  "There are plenty of cracking classics you could buy for the price of a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra . These are the Indian-built ‘modern’ takes on the Fifties single, but to be honest even the addition of electric start can’t save this bike from being something that perhaps ought to have died out with drainpipe trousers and Teddy Boys."   Read full review
