I've owned Bullet 500cc for over a year now and have completed 1000 kms. Positive points: Carburetor engine for a 500cc makes it very much apt for long rides unlike the classic 500cc. Because of the same reason, the thump is very much appropriate. Negative points: Poor brakes and lot of vibrations.

Coming to the performance its a power house, though handling in City rides not commendable (May be because i... Read More
