At the German motorcycle exhibition Intermot, Royal Enfield unveiled their latest version of the classic Bullet motorcycle, the Bullet Classic 500. The motorcycle is still the oldest model on the market (79 years old - you'd think they'd have recovered their development cost by now)), but has been updated over the years. Sporting more modern components, like the Euro 3 spec exhaust and18 inch wheels, the Bullet is ready to face 2009.

The Bullet's 500cc engine now generates 41.2 Nm of torque

Here's what their press information had to say:

The Royal Enfield Bullet has for decades been the byword for rugged, refined cool and a bike handcrafted to perfection. Royal Enfield is now proud to present the new Bullet Classic, a modern reworking of the old legend, taking its styling cues from the simplicity of the original 1950’s machine and combining the celebrated design and heritage with technological innovations of today.

The original heart and soul are intact. The post World War II styling, body colored frame, die-cast headlight casing, fuel tank with post war graphics, thigh pads and single saddle seat with springs of the original remain. But now, the state of the art, Euro III compliant, fully integrated, electronically fuel injected, 500cc engine brings the Bullet roaring into the future.
