With stricter emission and safety norms being implemented in Europe, Royal Enfield has updated their Classic 500 and Bullet 500 with some much needed features. Apart from making the bikes EURO-IV compliant, the Indian manufacturer has also added rear dics brake and ABS for all models (available in UK). The new update makes it ‘almost’ on par with some of the other bikes in the same price point.

It is not confirmed whether the 350cc models will receive these updates but with stricter safety norms rolling out this year and an increase in competition, we feel they are bound to happen sooner or later.
