    Which is the best Royal Enfield Bullet?

    I am planning to buy a new Bullet and it would be my 1st bullet so I want to buy a good bike which would last for at least 7-8 Years and it should be a low maintenance bike too. I have heard there are many different versions of Royal Enfield bullet but I don’t know which all are there so do let me know that also and the spec and price of each if possible. And also let me know should i buy a new bullet or go for a second hand.

    I think you should go for a new bike which should have 5 speed transmissions. As the 4 speed transmission does not have a good gear shift and even the old bikes has gear shift to its right side and the brakes are at left sides. As the Royal Enfield has improved their engine the new Bullet 500 classic is much more advanced than the old Bullets.

    I own a new UCE 350 standard Bullet which has an amazing engine with a great pickup and when driving on roads, feels very smooth and rich. It even has a good mileage and also a low maintenance bike. Even the gear shifting is very smooth and no vibration at all. But the seating is not the comfortable. And it is a very fast bike. I have ever seen in bullets. And as I have mentioned that I donít get any jerks or vibration even on fast speed.

    As Royal Enfield Light 535CC has been stopped and new Machismo 500 CC has a self start. Machismo 500 AVL has an Aluminum Engine and because of this engine it has good pickup and no heating due to which it delivers a good mileage. And even the gear shift which was on right hand side and brake on left hand side has been change to normal as other bikes. Even the mileage of this bike has improved and there is no vibration also on high speed.

    I own a new Bullet Classic 350 almost a year ago. I am very satisfied with my bullet. As it gives good mileage and even the speed is great and when you ride it on road you feel great and royal that you own a Royal Enfield.
