Royal Enfield Bullet is all set to give the bike makers like Honda, Bajaj, Yamaha, Suzuki and TVS a run for their money. A lot of sleepless nights are in store for these bike makers for sure. Based on their Classic UCE EFI500 Model, Royal Enfield has unveiled their new “Cafe racer concept motorbike” at the 10th Auto Expo in New Delhi. In the beginning of year 2012, it’s going to be exported to the US and Europe, but eventually towards the end of year 2012 they have a plan to launch this in India.

The Motorcycle is for those who want to hop to a coffee shop for a coffee or to a bar or pub for a beer. It’s aimed at the youth primarily. It’s a lot different than the Royal Enfield Bullet we are used to as it includes a host of sporty features like a retro tail lamp cluster, “Bump Stop” seat, clip-on bars, new twin pod instrument cluster, chopped mudguard, racing number plates on sides and megaphone muffler.

Royal Enfield is planning to price it around Rs.170, 000. It will be fitted with same UCE500 motor doing job in Royal Enfield Bullet classic 500 when it will be launched in 2012. It will be for sure a bit quicker than the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 of today though.

I am sure Harley Davidson will take a serious note of this development.

I am waiting for a V-Twin from Royal Enfield now. Am I getting a little too greedy?
