Royal Enfield builds motorcycles since the First World War and its models served many soldiers on the battlefield. Needless to say that Royal Enfield’s motorcycles had a rugged character and were reliable to the core, two attributes that made them perfectly suited for the harsh playground of the war.
Fortunately the company managed to survive until our days and its new bikes are as rugged and reliable as their predecessors.
The Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Chrome features the bold, award-winning design of the Bullet C5 Classic, which is considered by many like a magical link between past and present.

Totalmotorcycle ---- "The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is based on the Classic 500 with a rather generous dose of chrome on it. Like the Classic 500, the new Classic Chrome retains the quintessential classic British styling of the 1950s: simple, harmonious, well proportioned. The Chrome sports a seat with a leather finish and adds to the visual appeal of the motorcycle. Built of old-fashioned metal, in clean elegant lines of Chrome combined with a rich paint finish the design of the Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is a tribute to the retro look of post war British motorcycles."
Motorcycle-usa ---- "Our journey began on the curvy roads of New Hampshire where we found the slim, light Classic Chrome to be a very nimble bike. With a fairly low center of gravity, compact rider’s triangle and a claimed curb weight of a paltry 412 pounds, it doesn’t take much to toss the Royal Enfield around. Transitioning is quick and effort is minimal. Turn-in on the Classic Chrome is predictable and while it doesn’t necessarily carve turns, its can hold a line without much input at the bars. "
Motorcyclecruiser ---- "I really am having a ball on this thing. Sure it’s slower than the speed of smell, but it’s a hoot to ride, and the more I get to know it, the better I like it. I’ve taken one 175-mile round trip on it too, so don’t think I’m just puttering around town on the little bugger. Surprisingly the trip took about the same amount of time as it would have on any of my larger bikes, and I was just as comfortable, so maybe size really doesn’t matter."
