The all new Bullet 500 in a new Forest Green colour has been launched by the Iconic motorcycle brand Royal Enfield. When the bike was teased earlier on the Royal Enfield's official site, fans mind were only on the bike. One big change in the bike other than the colour is the dropping of the fuel injection to make it more cost efficient (cost yet to be announced). The new Bullet 500 uses a carburetter instead of the fuel injection, which results in a significant drop in its power and torque figures.
