Please post some photos of the bike in its element and a review if you can. Comparing the ride and suspension to the Himalayan would be interesting.I have one and absolutely love it. It is my putter around town and in the country. My Himalayan is a different bike altogether. I also have a new Interceptor 650. I think the Trials 500 is by far the best built of the 3.
The bikes are totally different. The 500 trials is really not a serious bike for off-road. ~
Thanks, but it is $5799 new. My dealer doesn't charge anything over that.FWIW- I have decided to sell my RE Trials 500 with 450 miles on it. If interested it is for sale for $5500. 20 months left on factory warranty.
Thanks man. I went and fixed it.Your end quote is broken so your post got embedded in the one you quoted.
A 21" front, 18" rear, up-swept exhaust, inch- inch and half longer rear shocks, braced handlebars make a nicer woods Bullet.I love the look of the bike and I have hours of roads and wildlife management areas where this type of bike would be fun. Fast off-road is not in my repertoire anymore. I am missing my vintage trials bike and think this might scratch that itch. Except of course that the vintage trails bike only weighed a couple hundred lbs.
I need to see if I can find a test ride on one, or at least test ride a used Bullet to make sure it doesn't end up a trophy bike sitting on a workbench like the old Moto Guzzi Cafe I once owned.
The look appeals to me, but it is priced right there with the 650 twins in the states. For that price it should have actual off-road suspension and true Trials capbability. I am hoping to see one in person later this month when I have to go into Nashville to drop my wife off at the airport. I will bring gear in case they allow a test ride. I would like to own one, but will probably have to wait until a used one shows up, like I did for the Van Van 200.This is just a standard bullet with a fancy exhaust and no rear seat nor footpeg. We have one here, red frame too, as 350 because in India the 350 is the bestseller.
But there really is no difference to a standard bullet other than optics. it looks smart, I like it, what I do not like is driving it LOL. Not nearly as comfy as the Himma.
yes, the 500 bullets are discontinued and the new 350s are EFI now. The last of those fancy 350 "off road" bullets where given to the dealerships at a 50% discount, probably to get rid of them before the BS6 hit, which the carbed version could not satisfy.
this one bike my dealer has sits in his shop like lead, in india people seem to like 2,3,4,5 and more people on one bike, not one only.
