New Royal Enfield will look like '50s model

Royal Enfield G2 from the 1951 brochure.

Royal Enfield's latest press release on the "New Royal Enfield Bullet Classic" suggests its appearance will go all the way back in time to the G2 model of the 1950s.

Royal Enfield will unveil their all new Bullet 500 at the INTERMOT convention tomorrow. According to Sunday's press release, Enfield's newest model celebrates the early Bullets.

"The new 'Bullet 500 Classic' harks back to the 'G2' Bullet of the early 1950s, retaining the quintessential classic British style that is inextricably linked to the Royal Enfield name. The new 'Bullet 500 Classic' is powered by the new 500cc 'Unit Construction Engine' (UCE) and is homologated for Euro III norms.

"This new model is expected to be in the Europe Distributors showrooms by January 2009," the press release concludes.
