I think Bullet is a classic long stroke Brit bike...it's not the RD350 type...it's a slow cruising nimble machine...a V-twin will add to that but a six-speed will take away the flavour from it...I think a bullet twin is always welcome but it should always be a 5 geared bike...

Re: Twin Cylinder Enfield
I just came across this and wanted to share something. A real world modified twin cylinder Royal Enfield Bullet.
Its called the Musket and there are two variants I believe 1)998 CC and 2) 700 CC.
Here is the link to the creator's website.

Re: Twin Cylinder Enfield
I think the Musket V-Twin might've been mentioned a few times in this forum before, but this thread is pretty appropriate for it. Aniket Vardhan, the guy behind the Musket has been at work on this for a while now, and has been garnering increasing attention and respect amongst the custom motorcycling world in the U.S. I chatted with him on Facebook and he comes across as a genuine, dedicated moto-geek with his heart in the right place He's currently working on old cast-iron engines but has insinuated he might consider making v-twins with the new UCE engines as well. Probably has his hands full right now - he's pretty much a one-man shop at present.
Check out this recent write-up in the respected BikeExif website: http://www.bikeexif.com/royal-enfield-v-twin
Another Indian guy in the US doing his thing is Janardhan "Chumma," one half of the two-man Ace Engineering team that makes high performance kits for the RE Bullets, again older CI engines, but I think they were looking into UCE as well. It's not a V-twin but worth taking note of.
The above info and links are a bit old, haven't had the time to follow up on what Chumma & team have been up to recently.
A bullet they worked on previously (above in the BikeExif site) was featured (in a different guise) in a recent episode of the popular Cafe Racer reality TV show. http://www.caferacertv.com/tag/royal-enfield/
