Royal Enfield Taurus Motorcycle with 345cc Diesel Engine (India)

This is a very rare version of the "Bullet" equipped with a diesel engine.­

The exact engine size (displacement) is 325cc, i.­e.­slightly less than the 350cc of the standard bullet gasoline engine.­

The large shiny part with small holes on the right side of the engine is a fan case.­ A fan has been added to cool down the diesel motor (possibly an engine oil cooling system?).­

These are photos that i took in the streets of Delhi (India)

It gives an idea of the organized chaos in the bazaars of the old city.­

Those photos are only from Delhi.­ I have many more interesting photos from other parts of India.

Photos taken during a 7-week, 7000 Km motorcycle tour across parts of India (Delhi, Rajasthan, Ladakh, Kashmir, Jammu and more) in May-June 2009.­

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.­
