2010 Royal Enfield Bullet lineup

Bullet models to use new unit construction engine

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Mar. 12, 2010
Importer Classic Motorworks announced the arrival of 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet models.

The 2010 Royal Enfield lineup will be built around a new fuel injected unit construction engine. First introduced in 2009 to meet Euro 3 emission regulations, the new engine will be installed across Royal Enfield’s entire North American Bullet lineup. The new engine places the five-speed transmission inside the engine casing. The transmission uses a seven-plate wet clutch Royal Enfield says is lighter and more accurate than the previous system.

Royal Enfield says the 499cc single-cylinder engine has a maximum power output of 27.5 bhp. Maximum torque is said to be 30.5 ft-lb. at 4,000 rpm. Royal Enfield also says the new engine gives Bullet models a fuel economy of just under 80 mpg.

Other updates include hydraulic lifters, a closed-loop electronic fuel injection system and a three-stage catalytic converter.

The 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Military comes with a two-year unlimited mileage manufacturer warranty.

The 2010 Royal Enfield Bullet lineup includes four models, the G5 Classic, G5 Deluxe, C5 Classic and the new C5 Military. The G5 models are priced at $5,995 while the C5 models are listed at $6,395. New 2010 models are expected in showrooms by the end of March, except in California where they are expected later in the spring.
