Originally known as just "Enfield", Royal Enfield India was set-up in 1955 when it started receiving 350cc bikes in kits from the UK and assembling them in Chennai, India. Eventually the entire bike was manufactured in India and a couple of years later Enfield started manufacturing the 500cc Bullet.
By local comparison, its sheer power, unmatched stability, superior riding comfort and rugged good looks, the Bullet dominated and continues to dominate the Indian roads. It is the dream choice of many motorcyclist in India with even the Indian Army and Police endorsing the Bike.
