“The iconic Bullet motorcycle gets a new lease of power today with the launch of the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 in India,” the company said in a statement.

The 500 cc motorcycle will be available at Rs 1,53,855 (on road price for Delhi) and it will be launched in a phased manner across the country, it added.

Initially, the bike will be launched in Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi-NCR and Kerala that have traditionally been the best markets for the Bullet.
