it is a very good bike comes to performance but maintenance cost, mileage, and overheating gives you uncomfortable experience with it. Bullet 500 is just a pride to own and ride with it not for daily commute.
I am getting around 80 miles to the gallon which I am pleased with. She is comfortable, and just.chugs along with two up. At my time of day she suites both my wife and I as we are in our 60s.
It"s good bike for the tour problem is after 20000 kilometer crank parts get problem and it"s repairs parts is expensive more than 20000 charge at bullet showroom service center
30k+ kms done so far. Services are heavier on pocket. The one-way clutch (Rs. 5k) is very much problematic too. I have changed it 3 times so far and going for 4th now.

Bullet 500 Design and Features

There is generous use of chrome on the exhaust, mudguards and headlamp bezel to add to its retro look.
Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Competitors
Mahindra Mojo: The Mojo makes for a good tourer, thanks to its comfortable ergonomics, good ride quality and performance from its 300cc liquid-cooled motor. It might not handle as well as the competition, but when it comes to travelling long distances at a stretch, the Mojo acquits itself quite well.
Bajaj Dominar 400: When it comes to performance, the Dominar is ahead of the competition, thanks to its 375cc liquid-cooled and fuel-injected single that makes 35PS of power. It also handles better than the competition, though the stiff suspension setup is not conducive to long-distance touring, especially on our bad roads.
If you are in the market for a classic on a budget, it does not get any more real than this. The slow-revving torquey motor and old-school vibes are guaranteed to give you a bout of nostalgia every time you ride one.
