Royal Enfield "Bullet" 350cc Motorcycle - Udaipur (India)

This is the classic model with the gear shift on the right side (on modern motorcycles, the gear shift is on the left side, and the rear brake on the right side).­ The gears are also inverted, i.­e.­ the first gear is up and the other gears are down.­

Photos of Royal Enfield "Bullet" Motorcycles.­

Royal Enfield are manufactured in India.­ They are rugged and simple to maintain and fix, which is why they are very popular in the Himalaya regions.­ The most popular model is 350cc, but there is also a 500cc version.­

Royal Enfield "Bullet" motorcycles are also heavy, sometimes unreliable and not fuel efficient, because they are based on a design that dates the 1940's, with only minor changes and improvements.­ But they are very simple to fix when they break down.­

I rented my Royal Enfield in Delhi, at a small shop called "Smart Motors" on Naiwala street in the Karol Bagh neighborhood.­ The owner, Mohit Soni, is a very nice guy, and they have good bikes.­ I recommend him.­

Other recommended shops to rent Enfield "Bullets" in Delhi are Lali Singh and Tony Motors.­
