The RE Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 features few cosmetic and mechanical updates over the standard Classic 500 variant
Royal Enfield has launched the Bullet Trials Replica in the UK after it commenced the pre-bookings of the motorcycle last week at £4,699 (which is approximately around Rs 4.14 lakhs) in the UK.
Royal Enfield launched the Trials Replica in India in March this year at an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 1,62,345 (for the 350) and Rs 2,07,104 (for the 500) respectively. For those of you who are not aware, Royal Enfield do not sell their 350cc range of motorcycles in the UK and thus will only sell the Bullet Trials Replica 500 there.
As far as the motorcycle is concerned the Trials Works Replica models have received few cosmetic and mechanical changes compared to the Classic models. Towards the front, the motorcycle features a headlight grille and fork gaiters that adds a rugged appearance. The 19-inch front and the 18 inches spoke wheels are wrapped with dual purpose tyres that promise to offer better grip on uneven terrains.
Besides all that the motorcycle also has received a bash plate to protect the engine. The motorcycle also features a shorter front and rear fenders. To also differentiate it from the standard Classic variants the Bullet Trials Replica also gets a 3D Royal Enfield badge.
In addition to all these changes, the motorcycle also received a chrome treatment on the headlamp, fuel tank side profile, front fenders, side turn indicators and also on the oval-shaped box towards the side profile. The Bullet Trials Works Replica 500 also gets an olive green paint for the chassis, sub-frame, swingarm, front fender mounts and also the centre stand.
There have been no changes to the engine though, the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials Works Replica is powered by the same 499 cc, air-cooled, single cylinder, FI engine. This unit produces about 27.1 BHP of peak power and 41 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
The suspension duties are taken care of by the same telescopic units at the front and twin sided spring setup at the rear. The motorcycle relies on disc brakes on both ends for stopping. A dual channel ABS is also offered as standard for the safety of the rider.
