The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is based on the Classic 500 with a rather generous dose of chrome on it. Like the Classic 500, the new Classic Chrome retains the quintessential classic British styling of the 1950s: simple, harmonious, well proportioned. The Chrome sports a seat with a leather finish and adds to the visual appeal of the motorcycle. Built of old-fashioned metal, in clean elegant lines of Chrome combined with a rich paint finish the design of the Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is a tribute to the retro look of post war British motorcycles.
The fuel-injected 500cc unit construction engine, which Royal Enfield got Italy's Engines Engineering to design and build, is the strongest point of the whole package. Outputting over 27 horses and a mammoth 42Nm of peak torque, the Bullet finally lives up to the reputation of its tagline "Built Like a Gun, Goes like a Bullet". After dispatching nought to sixty in under five seconds, you'll be hurtling past the ton mark in just over 10 seconds (if you keep her pinned that is). Its top speed is about 130kph, with 140 being registered on the analog speedometer.
