The First and Second World Wars were a tough test for military vehicles and motorcycles and during this period of time there were made many technical advancements in terms of reliability and efficiency. The perfect war motorcycle was rugged, had all terrain capability, and had enough punch to move you from point A to B as fast as possible.
Back then, Royal Enfield was one of the few motorcycle manufacturers who provided motorcycles for military use. Since then, the company continued to build tough and reliable bikes, and today its models continue to be appreciated for their “bullet proof“ build quality, simple mechanics and classic style.
One of the modern motorcycles built by the company is the 2013 Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Military, which is basically a vintage looking bike which draws inspiration from the War era.
The motorcycle is powered by a single cylinder, 4-stroke, spark ignition, air cooled, OHV engine which has a 499 cc displacement.
