Bajaj Dominar is the new winner for its segment, leaving behind the entire 500cc Royal Enfield range by a good margin in May 2019. The 1,888 units posted by the Dominar 400 were good enough to beat 612 units of the Classic 500, 140 units of the Bullet 500, and 133 units of the Thunderbird 500.

Combined, these three bikes were good for 885 units and that leaves 1,003 units more on the side of the new Dominar. Not just that, Dominar 400 is now more powerful than ever, producing 40 HP of maximum power and 35 Nm of peak torque from its 373.2cc DOHC fuel-injected engine. The new model of Dominar now comes equipped with USD front forks, new double barrel exhaust, and updated twin instrument consoles.

The price point of INR 1.74 lakh makes Dominar a much better option than the 500cc RE range while comparison with 346cc series still keeps a strong point for Royal Enfield at INR 1.53 lakh. The difference of INR 21,000 is good enough for many to consider the RE Classic 350 series. However, the power output of 20 HP is just half in comparison to the new Dominar.

7000 Royal Enfield Motorcycles Recalled (Quick Report): 7000 units of Royal Enfield Bullet series motorcycles manufactured between March 20 to April 30 2019, are listed under voluntary recall, with the brand executing free replacement of the faulty brake caliper bolt of the motorcycle. The recall is one responsible gesture where the brand felt that the quality of the bolt was not up to the RE standards and needs replacement with a better one.

The dealerships are calling the owners to connect with them regarding the issue and get the same replaced free of cost. The affected motorcycles belong to both the 350cc and 500cc variant of the popular and highly-desired Bullet motorcycle series. Here is the official statement issued by the brand:

“This is because service investigations revealed that the torque maintained on brake calliper bolts, as supplied by the vendor, on a few of these motorcycles were not as per stringent Royal Enfield quality standards. Brake calliper bolt is an essential part of braking system securing the brake hose and brake calliper. This voluntary service action will be undertaken on close to 7,000 motorcycles that were retailed during the said period. All concerned customers are being called for a service intervention, and various stakeholders are being informed accordingly.”

Royal Enfield Bullet 500 ABS is now officially available in India for INR 1.87 lakh. The price is ex-showroom while the flagship Bullet comes with disc brakes for both the ends with dual channel ABS. The model is available in both Black and Forest Green shade. This marks the entry of ABS into the Bullet series as all other models are now available with ABS-equipped bikes in the RE lineup.

The 500cc Bullet commands a premium of INR 14,000 over the non-ABS model. It is yet to be seen how Thunderbird 350 and 350X got the ABS feature for half that increase while all other models saw an increase of INR 12,000 on the respective variants.

Meet Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Numero Uno Edition: If you imagine RE Bullet 500 as a decent tourer and, praise it for the amount of comfort it offers, some views will change for sure after you have a look at this cafe racer. By birth, it was the same bike you imagined but, Rajputana Customs had something else for its remaining life.

Numero Uno, the famous jeans brand, had asked them to build a one-off model for brand promotion. The list of changes made to this bike is longer than what Royal Enfield lists under the feature list of Bullet 500 or any other Bullet series bike.

The front fascia now features a non-faired round headlight with chrome outer ring and standard placement. They replaced the conventional forks with thicker USD forks for better handling. Black shade of the rims compliments the overall profile of this Cafe Racer.

Those who are wandering for the front suspension, KTM sourced forks can be seen here in action. The rear end is available with dust protecting, an almost minimal fender that stays closer to the monoshock. The front side doesn’t have a cover at all. Altering the frame helped Rajputana Customs achieve a single flat seat with a ribbed pattern.

Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Numero Uno EditionThey are using thicker tires at both ends, the rear being a broader unit with thicker sidewall than the front one. A chopped exhaust has been used for the underbelly feel. A redesigned swing-arm further makes this cafe racer feel premium than the stock version.

Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is powered by a 499cc, single cylinder engine, producing 27.2 BHP and 41.3 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. All these values remain the same on this modified version. Rajputana Customs took 3 months to complete this modification with a total cost of INR 5 lakh, excluding the price of the donor bike.

Bullet 500 Modified to Suzuki Intruder M1800R: 16Moto Performance worked on a Royal Enfield Bullet 500 and made an unbelievable machine out of the retro thumper. Slightly inspired from Suzuki Intruder at the front, this muscle packed motorcycle is ideally a match between cruiser and street DNA.

Apart from its engine and kick-starter, it has its own unique identity through huge panels, larger than life fuel tank and a wheel that could put commuter cars to shame. As unique as it could get, 16Moto Performance has done a fantastic job on this Bullet.

Front section now comes with thick USD forks, a large disc brake and Black alloy wheel that is actually different than the one used at rear end. Front tyre is actually matching the likes of Harley Davidson Fat Boy’s thickness.

Extra wide handlebar and all new fuel tank further makes this machine massive in dimensional perspective. They have used a fully digital console for this motorcycle, further bringing options to the raised part of its fuel tank. The seat is wider than usual and gets ribbed stitching for added comfort.

As with the Royal Enfield DNA, rear seat is almost at the same level as the front one, providing equal level of comfort to both the rider as well as pillion. The wide frame covers end up into a clean LED light, that too surrounded with indicators on both the sides.

A unique setup of twin full sized mono-shocks can be seen here, both of them being placed under the seat in an unconventional manner. Surprises further move through its extra wide swing-arm and huge wheel with similarly sized custom disc brake.

16Moto Performance used a White/Blue theme over the motorcycle panels, further using Gloss Black to highlight for its extra large rear fender. The engine here comes mated to a black free flow exhaust while performance seems to stay calm as one could experience in the stock motorcycle.

RE Bullet 500 is powered by a 499cc, single cylinder engine producing 27.2 BHP and 41.4 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and may feel under-powered with these parts in action.

What more fun one can expect when he/she is hundreds of kilometers away from home, enjoying the new place on a set of powerful two wheeled machine and roaming around every important destination like you were born for this.If some instances are keeping up with your holiday routine, you must be one traveller soul like Sagar KV.

He got addicted to this riding bug when he was just 21. Before going solo on such long trips, he tried few times with riding groups but, failed to get the feel that was exclusive when he was alone for an expedition. Not a bad idea at all as driving alone brings the sense of knowing yourself in the best possible way.

2100 kms Solo Ride on Royal Enfield Bullet 500 by Sagar KV

By planning a week off from everything, Sagar pinned on Gujarat as his next destination. He believes in collecting facts and routes before leaving as relying on devices is not his way of dealing with the routes. He shortlisted the distances and planned every step that he will take through his entire Gujarat journey.

It took him 2100 kms to explore the state by spending around INR 26,000 on his fully self financed trip. Also, he chose a rented Royal Enfield Bullet 500 from Gujarat to make things easier than ever. Being a foodie helped Sagar a lot as he was lucky to taste almost every specialty of Gujarat without thinking too much.

He took a flight from Bengaluru to Ahmedabad and rode from the destination to Bhuj (340 kilometers) on his first day. He went on to explore Bhuj that day and reached Rann of Kutch next day after travelling 105 kilometers in the morning. From Mandvi, he rode 450 kilometers to Dwarka and explored the ancient city of temples.

Next day was a ride to Porbandar while Somnath and Sri Ram temple were his his next day destinations. He went to Diu and after staying for one night, went back to Ahmedabad and explored the city next day. After leaving the Bullet 500 back at rental office, he took a flight to Pune and summed up his explorations.

Key Facts About the Journey

  • Motorcycle: Royal Enfield Bullet 500
  • Rider: Sagar KV – Facebook Profile | Instagram
  • Route: Ahmedabad-Bhuj-Great Rann of Kutch-Mandvi-Dwarka-Porbandar-Somnath-Diu-Lothal-Ahmedabad
  • Total Expense: INR 26,000
  • Bike Rent: INR 7200 (Included Above)
