100 cc Royal Enfield Bullet imitation [Video]
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
Royal Udo, an Indian motorcycle modification house has modified a 100 cc commuter to look like the Royal Enfield Bullet.
The base motorcycle is unknown at the moment, but the bike has undergone multiple changes to make it look as identical as the Bullet. The fuel tank features knee grips, and gets the logo that reads ‘Royal Indian’. The Bullet-derived side box comes with a sticker that reads ‘Blot 100’.
The single piece seat is nicely carved for comfort, and the easy-to-reach handlebar gets a single pod cluster. They have lifted the tail light set from the Royal Enfield, and it gets an upswept aftermarket exhaust. The gaitered front fork, and the twin rear shock absorbers appear to be stock. The spoke wheels come to a halt using drum brakes on both ends.
Royal Enfield has sworn not to enter the commuter motorcycle segment. It will keep its positioning as a middleweight manufacturer, and its goal is to become the bigger player in that segment globally.
