2010 Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycles

Royal Enfield Motorcycles

In 1893, the Enfield Manufacturing Company Ltd was registered to manufacture bicycles. In 1911, prior to the outbreak of the WWI the company added Royal to its name and became Royal Enfield. Royal Enfield supplied large numbers of motorcycles to the British War Department during WWI and would be called upon again during WWII.

From 1955 to 1959, Royal Enfield’s were painted red, and marketed in the USA as Indian Motorcycles by the Brockhouse Corporation, who had control of the Indian Sales Corporation. The agreement ended in 1960, and from 1961, they were available in the US under their own name Royal Enfield Motorcycles.

In 1955, the Indian government looked for a suitable motorcycle for its police and army. They looked at the Bullet to do this job and so it was chosen as the most suitable bike for the job. Royal Enfield India is still manufacturing in India and is being exported to Europe as well as North America and Australia.

2010 Royal Enfield Bullet G5 Classic EFI

The 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet G5 Classic EFI has improved suspension, higher cruising speed, and better handling. The hand painted pinstripes and the color is a blast from the past in the looks department. One thing that is not stuck in the past is maintenance and fuel economy. Simplified maintenance makes it easy to take care of and the 85 mpg fuel economy makes it easier to top off the gas tank.

Good hub. I've been doing some movie extra work recently and they are using two Royal Enfields in the movie. They look like they are the G% Military EF1 model by the look of it, real classic looking bikes.

I am not sure if anybody is interested but your hub reminded me of my first motorbike, I sold a push bike I had built, to buy it, I got the enfield for £14 ten shillings HaHa.I think the guy felt sorry for me I wanted it that bad. It was a model G with girder forks and a rigid back end, it was powereed by a thing called a mag lighter.
