2010 Royal Enfield Bullet Lineup
2010 Royal Enfield Bullet lineup
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 Enfields 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 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.
