Riding into work on a brand new 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet Classic C5 500cc fuel-injected single.

The bike was picked up on Nov. 10, 2010 at Crossroads Powersports in Kansas City, Mo., and will spend two weeks with the editors at Motorcycle Classics. An article on our impressions of the bike will appear in a future issue of Motorcycle Classics so stay tuned!

If you like big British singles you'll fall in love with the C5, Mine has been a absolutely wonderful motorcycle. The best of classic style and modern reliability!

I had an iron barrel 4-speed 2002 Bullet 500 that had customized to taste then foolishly sold because I wanted a highway capable bike that I could ride long distances. My Enfield was loads of fun to ride. My replacement FJ1200 was fast and comfortable, but in the day-to-day commuting and errand running that I did, the Enfield was the better bike. The Enfield (upgraded to electronic ignition) started with one kick or a quick push of the electric start button every time, it got a smile from everyone who saw it (including the Harley guys) and more than one Indian cab driver hopped talked to me about it at stop lights. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat.

I have been riding my 2008 (old Iron Head) Bullet now for a couple of years, and I love it as much as any Motorcycle I have ever owned. I Absolutely, stay off of the Interstate Highways ! fifty five is a great running speed. and yields a consaistant eighty miles per gallon on "Regular" grade gasoline. The old carburetted Bullets are a bit "quirky" and take some fiddling and wrenching to become a well "sorted out", comfortable, and dependible machine. As I said before, I love mine as much as any of the five or six that I have owned over the past forty years. I ride it regularly to commute the 70 mile round trip to Nashville.

Has anyone at Mc Classics seen or done an article on the Enfield Musket, a v twin "special" based on the enfield 350cc single built by Aniket Vardhan? There's an article with pictures at kneeslider.com,and you can see video at youtube. Very nice, as I understand it he's currently at work on a 1000cc version. The sound of that motor is amazing.

Richard, Have fun on the new thumper. I ride my wife's Suzuki Savage from time to time for fun. It has the same issues as the Royal Enfield at about 10 miles per hour faster. Look froward to the report since I am considering one of these. Bruce
