This Replica Trials Moto Is A Retro Revival Of A Historic Royal Enfield Model

Mar 12, 2020

Royal Enfield has more than a few legendary motorcycle models in its catalog, but there are a handful of prolific platforms that stand apart due to their iconic lineage. The brand’s genre-defining Bullet was one such example, helping to carve a path for trial bikes throughout history, and earning various accolades at the International Six Days’ Trials competition.

Boasting the title of the brand’s first swing-arm suspension production model, and paving the way for history’s traversal-approved trial bikes, the Bullet was an enigma within the world of technical trail riding. To pay homage to the original, which was helmed by the company’s legendary 18-year-old rider, Johnny Brittain, the recently-announced Bullet Trials 500 Replica has adopted many of its predecessor’s vintage traits. The 499cc cycle features a nostalgic body style that’s been brought into modernity through the use of reinforced steel, updated ergonomics, dual-channel ABS, and an upswept silencer to keep water out of the pipe during those waist-deep river crossings. To further the bike’s legitimacy, two iconic colorways are available — Replica 500 Green and Replica 500 Red — for an affordable $5,800.
