    Old Bullet vs New Bullet : Myth or Fact

    I had heard many saying that old Bullet (i.e. the used one) is much more better than the new one. I do not understand that is this a myth or fact. Does anyone anything about this.

    Yes this is right, many says that old bullet is better than new one. The reason is common. I hope I can explain this. If you need a simple old style bike then you can go for used one. The benefit of used bike is first they are low on cost, they have more life and low percentage of depreciation. Depending on the age of usage they are quiet
    reliable, but may lack in mileage. Second if you want a better design, more mileage, electric start, better pickup and performance then newer are recommended. They cost Hatarihigher and you know our roads. People are always ready to hit from back which can spoil the design.

    Benefit depends on the usage. If the bullet is under better condition and you are satisfied with the trails in relative half the amount of new cost you can get it. It is also found the well maintained older bikes are low on maintenance cost.

    I do not recommend used one. Reason the new technology which it lacks and surely upgrades are not cheaper. New age bike are more comfortable with better features and surely the company works hard to give you better mileage. Old are considered on the basis of look. They are heavier and give a classy locks which modified to great extent in the current models. The sturdiness what lacks in new ones.

    I had heard this from a mechanic that old are better. He was referring to models which were sold before 1985 CI engines. Those were heavier and allows you to drive with lesser gear change. You can easily pull those bikes even on very low speed. While I consider this as a myth that older ones are better. New models are equipped with new technology and power. Oil dripping is improved a lot, new coil are better and these bikes are really low on maintenance as compare to older.

    If you are going for a bullet older than 1970, and if the parts are not replaced and the condition is even Ok.. then it stands a great deal as the genuine parts used at that time is supposedely came from england and thats the reason its heavy too..
    However better to go for a classic new model as there is a guarantee of a new one..
