Royal Enfield Bullet 500 ‘Aristocrat’ by Nomad Motorcycles
18 January 2018 - IndianAutosBlog
The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 has gotten a royal makeover by Pune-based custom house, Nomad Motorcycles.
To begin with, the bike features a white paint finish with black pin stripes on the fuel tank and side boxes. The tool box and the battery box cover feature leather wrapping, with engraved logos. They have also used a spring-mounted single seat wrapped in leather. The rear fender is clean with a minimalistic LED tail light. There are two leather saddle bags on the sides as well, which enhances the practicality of the bike, while exuding an old-school charm. The rear view mirrors are rectangular chromed units instead of the stock circular ones.
The powertrain looks stock, and so do the cycle parts. The 499 cc single cylinder mill churns out 27.2 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm; and 41.3 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a 5-speed gearbox.
Coming to the suspension bits, the bike employs telescopic front fork; and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. The 19-inch front and the 18-inch rear are shod with Ceat Zoom Plus tyres. A 280 mm front disc and a 153 mm rear drum take care of the anchoring.
