2011 Royal Enfield Bullet C5 | Quick Look

2011 Royal Enfield

Is this a true vintage bike built in the 21st century, or is it a 21st century bike with a vintage countenance?

That used to be an easier question to answer a few years ago, as the Royal Enfield Bullet was a virtual reproduction of the 1950s version of the Made In India motorcycle.

However, updates, including EFI, have found their way onto the machine, so it has become a modern bike due to the challenges of meeting emissions requirements.

Regardless, it remains a hugely fun bike to ride and be seen riding.
