There are some things you just cannot hide. Take this motorcycle for instance. If you’re a Bullet buff, you know what you’re looking at; a Battle Green coloured Royal Enfield Classic 500 which is restricted for International markets.
This specific colour is not sold in India, due to the limitations in Indian Motor Vehicles Act that disallows Military Green colour for civilians or non-military vehicles. However, a single unit of the Classic 500 Battle Green was spotted at a dealership in Bangalore, which is most likely to be a dealer-level modification because Royal Enfield clearly mentions that the Battle Green colour motorcycle is not on-sale in India.
And its highly-impossible that the export-spec Battle Green coloured Classic 500 were mistakenly loaded into a trailer which was meant to be distributed among dealers in India, like the case of white-coloured KTM 390 Duke as the international-model gets black-coloured side fuel-tank padding, and also the spoke wheels are painted in the green shade as that of the other body panels.
The Classic 500 Battle Green comes to you with a paint scheme reminiscent of the War era, a time when Royal Enfield motorcycles proved their capabilitities and battle worthiness by impeccable service to soldiers. Overall, the motorcycle retains the classic stance of the original Bullet, which makes it a much more special and timeless motorcycle, even after being modern by every angle of perception.
