After commencing the pre-bookings for the Bullet Trials Works Replica in the UK, Royal Enfield has launched the motorcycle in the country at £4,699 (approximately INR 4.14 lakh). For reference, the standard Royal Enfield Classic 500 also retails at £4,699 in the UK. Do note that Royal Enfield does not offer its 350 cc range in the UK market and thus the company will sell only the Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 in that market.
In India, the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 retails at INR 2,07,104, while the 350 cc model is priced at INR 1,62,345 – both ex-showroom Delhi prices. The Bullet Trials Works Replica duo was launched in the Indian market in March 2019.
Inspired by Johhny Brittain’s trials motorcycle, which won more than 50 championships between 1948 and 1965, the Trials Works Replica features design and hardware upgrades over the standard Classic 500. The endurance motorcycle-inspired front fascia features a headlight grille and fork gaiters that enhance its rugged persona.
The motorcycle rides on 19-inch and 18-inch front and rear wheels at the front and back respectively that, like on the stock motorcycle, come in wire-spoke design. The wheels on the Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 model, however, are shod in dual-purpose tyres. The bike also benefits from a bash plate to protect the engine against various elements such as pebbles and mud while off-roading. Lastly, it comes with shorter front and rear fenders than the standard bike.
To further enhance the premium looks, the Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 comes with a 3D Royal Enfield badge and chrome treatment on various parts such as headlight mask, blinker mounts, rear-view mirror housing, fuel tank's sides, front fender and the oval box on the sides. The Trials Works Replica 500 gets an olive green paint for the chassis, sub-frame, swingarm, front fender mounts and the centre stand.
Engine specifications remain identical to the standard Classic 500 that uses a 499 cc air-cooled FI engine. Paired with a five-speed transmission, the single-cylinder motor makes 27.1 BHP of max power and 41 Nm of max torque. Hardware specs continue to include disc brakes on either end, dual-channel ABS, conventional telescopic front forks and twin-sided springs at the back.
