Let’s take a look at six Royal Enfields launching soon.

The 500 cc variants on the other hand get powered by a 499cc single cylinder mill that produces 27.2 Bhp and 41.3 Nm of torque. The ABS variants will be launched by the end of this year and will greatly improve the safety of the bike during hard braking.

The Bullet ES (Electric Start) is actually a rebranded version of the old Royal Enfield Electra motorcycle. It gets powered by a single cylinder, 4 stroke, Twinspark engine which produces 19.8 Bhp of power 28 Nm of torque. The bike uses the same body and construction as the standard Bullet but has some changes made on the styling front. ABS system on it would come as a great help for many owing to the heft of the  bike.
