Royal Enfield has launched the Bullet 500 in India on the web. The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 UCE gets a carburetor instead of fuel injection and puts out 26.5 PS @ 5,100 rpm and 40.9 Nm @ 3,800 rpm.

A noteworthy cosmetic addition is a new paintjob RE likes to call ‘Forest Green’. Other notable additions improving usability are the new seat profile (continuous type) and a grab rail with end cushion for the pillion.
