Hi! Sushil ;>)

When one looks carefully at the 49 Bullet, it is bristling with some advanced features such as hydraulic front and rear suspension and a powerful over head valve engine, quite rare in those early post war days.

The author of Motor Cycle magazine was the late Graham Walker a former racing motor cyclist before WWII.

He was the father of another famous Walker..Murray Walker whose commentaries on world class motor sport are legendary.

I think it is wonderful that the name of Royal Enfield lives on with the production of the Bullet in India ;>)

Kind regards !!

Hello Jim,

It feels nice being among a 'Senior' like you...Thank you for sharing informative knowledge, The present Bullet(Cast-Iron Block ones) continues the technology of WWII: Tappet Rods, Rocker & over-head valves.

Royal Enfield was winner of GP in 1950. Initial torque is boostingly produced with this technology in the engine...But the only limitation TappetRod & Rocker has is that they do not produce top speeds. The most convincing +ve point I've noted is that no matter how many time the engine is overhauled, each overhauling give a brand new feeling while riding. My Bullet has been overhauled just thrice since 1980. THIS CAN'T BE DONE WITH JAPNIS BIKES!

The other make which too makes bikes based on the tech used in 1950s is the Triumph. I would love to own the Triumph Boneville T100 someday.

Have a great time...friends are calling me for an evening coffee-ride ;) Sushil Pingua
