The first Royal Enfield motorcycle was built in 1901 by the Enfield Cycle Company of Redditch having previously manufactured bicycles, lawnmowers and stationary engines. Under various ownership, the name has continued through to the present day making it one of the longest running names in the two-wheeled world. In the early 1950s the Indian government were looking for a suitable motorcycle for its army to patrol the country's borders and the Royal Enfield Bullet was chosen as the most suitable bike for the job. In 1954, the government ordered 800 bikes from the UK and in 1955 the Redditch company partnered with Madras Motors in India to form 'Enfield India' to assemble 350 Bullets under license in Madras, with tooling being sold to the new firm to enable them to manufacture their own components. By 1962 all major parts were being made in India and in 1994 they merged with the Eicher Group, a large automotive company, allowing them to produce over 500,000 bikes a year.
This 2005 model Bullet in metallic red is the later electric start model and comes fitted with a touring windscreen. Last run early this year, it's only being sold as it is now too heavy for the vendor to maneuver around and comes supplied with an owner’s manual, a current V5C and MOT until June 2023.
