Bullet Trials 500cc and 350cc draws inspiration from classic trials competitions from the 1940’s and 50’s. New Bullet Trials are fitted with block tread pattern tyres for improved off road grip. The reinforced handlebar comes with a cross-brace. A raised silencer improves ground clearance, and keeping with mandated ABS norms that come into effect from April 2019, Trials feature dual channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
Trimmed mudguards, a single seat, and luggage carrier are standard features. For those keen on adding more, Trials bikes are available with five specific accessories built for the bikes – compact engine guard, headlight grill, number board, aluminium sump guard for added engine protection, and handlebar brace pad. In all, there are 30 genuine motorcycle accessories to choose from. Watch the official TVC video below, which details the history of Royal Enfield Trials.
