CLASSIC 500 MOTORBIKE | BY ROYAL ENFIELD Royal Enfield 500 Classic sports a very cool retro look, armed with a potent fuel injected 500cc engine and clothed in a disarmingly appealing post war styling, this promises to be the most coveted Royal Enfield in history. This bike has it all, power, fuel efficiency, reliability and simple, yet dead gorgeous classic styling.
The modern-day Royal Enfield has many charms. But a rumbling exhaust note is not one of them. And nor is the ability to smoke rubber, however gently. Ohio-based Aniket Vardhan has found a solution to this problem. There’s no substitute for cubic inches, so he’s mated two 500cc Enfield motors together to create the Musket V-Twin. It’s an extraordinary engineering achievement, and Vardhan now has a solid order book and huge backlog of email enquiries to wade through.
