Buying a Royal Enfield Bullet

27th Apr 2017 7:05 pm

I have heard that all Bullets have a problem of hard back kicks and wanted to know if the current bikes have the same problem

I am interested in buying a Royal Enfield Bullet. But I have heard that all RE Bullets have a problem of hard back kicks that leaves the rider limping. So, I would like to know  if  modern Bullets have the same problem, or has that been corrected in the new engine?

AAA We suggest you go ahead and purchase a new Bullet. Being large-capacity, single-cylinder bikes, all Royal Enfield motorcycles are hard to kick-start. However, every new model made by the company today comes with an auto-decompression system and an efficient electric starter, which makes starting the bike just as convenient as any other motorcycle.
