The Bullet first shot out of Royal Enfieldâ€™s barrel back in 1931, and has been the longest running production among bikes, in India, since 1948. Colloquially synonymous with the Royal Enfield itself, the Bullet's hold over the Indian market and sentiment, seemingly, cannot be unclasped. The class, the stature, the demeanour; could we love it any more?
One of Britain's babies that came as a side project by the company that made the rifles of the same name, Royal Enfield made its way to India in 1955 being bought off by Enfield Cycle Company and Madras Motors, and is now as Indian as Chole Bhature.
The Brits can keep the Kohinoor and the Chicken Tikka Masala, we go the better deal!
