    Poor man’s Ducati Diavel.

      Malignant Pain in the Bum for Royal Enfield if this ever manages penetrate the thick skull of its fans.

        RE fans would probably have no idea as to how the Torque and HP make any difference with engines, for them it’s only about being on a junk with 2 wheels and making it sound like some kid got hold of an empty barrel and beating it without mercy. I sometimes wonder how the hell can a person cruise at 50kmph with those obnoxiously loud exhausts they buy for 500 Rs in the local market and yet brag about the Bullet (BOOOLT) as they may call it.

          Ha Ha Ha Ha!!! You don’t know how much annoyed i would get with idiots on Bullets with “obnoxiously loud exhausts ” like you said, riding at traffic joints and streets that some like to rev hard like sports bike which makes a lot of noise, a lot of irritation to a peaceful neighborhood as well as infuriating at already noise pollution infested traffic signals.

          Some one have to wake then up that its not 1950’s anymore and today its not gentlemanly to ride around something that shoots a rear mounted 50 cal machine gun for every stroke of the piston.
