Default Everyone makes way for V12's Bullet.

Hi guys,

Got myself a brand new Royal Enfield Machismo 2 weeks back after selling my Eliminator. Got it for 84k on-road from The Royal Enfield Brand Store in Bandra. Mods for the future include :

Shorter and lower handlebars
Bucket seats.
Shorter silencer.
K&N filters in May/June (most probably).

V12:
congratulations on your new buy!!
i've seen pictures of your immaculately maintained eliminator - never seen it in real, however, Aditya couldn't stop stressing enough how well you take care of it..
i'm sure with your record - a number of years down the line this bike will still be as good as knew!

its VERY rare, that people buy Royal Enfields thesedays - only a true Bullet lover would do so..
hoping to join the club soon..

enjoy - it looks HOTT!

Another bulleteer is born.

Congrats on your purchase V12. Seeing the way you took care of your Elim, I can't think of a bike more apt for you! I'm sure you are already daydreaming about cleaning and polishing all that chrome

V12, expecting you there on Thursday. See, we missed it again!!

Congrats on your new purchase. Anyway, I knew about this one and only waiting to see in 3D.
By the way, you have a co-rider so often that you had to fit that rear guard?

Now for a good helmet..for 1st April onward.

Woah man,
Bullet machismo is my favourite... I learnt to ride on one.. Just love it.. Its the most powerful compared to other bullets..
My friend in Chennai bought one in 2000 and recently after service he says that its in the bestest of shapes..
Recently he touched 130kph with that baby.. She is simply adorable..

I'm sure u'r love her a lot and would take great care of her..

_Happy Thumping_

The cameraman (my younger bro) is the co-rider. If he gets injured in a fall, we gonna have a tough time updating the "Supercars and Bikes in India" section.
