Royal Enfield is expected to launch its 500cc Electra in the next few weeks. The Royal Enfield Electra 500 will be available in dealerships soon and will be available in new colour schemes as well. The basic design will be similar to the 350cc Electra’s, but will now be powered by the Bullet 500’s motor. Unlike the Classic 500 and the Thunderbird 500, the Electra 500 will not come with fuel injection, and will have a carburettor like the Bullet 500. The engine delivers 26.1bhp and 40.9Nm of power and torque respectively.
2015 seems to have been a great year for Royal Enfield. They have a reported a 50% increase in its sales in 2014 & 2015. The Classic 350 was one of their largest selling models. The company targets customers who will be looking at the 500cc product with a lot more styling, good looks and the best part with not much of a price difference.
