So what is the deal with these? That looks like the same old UCE 500 single to me. Are they going to keep making it? Does it still vibrate and sound like the UCE Bullet/Classic? (the vibration and sound, and to a point the looks, were the main reasons I bought a B5 Bullet)

Hi mangizmo, great looking bike. I hope you have a lot of fun with it. If you like top boxes and luggage, check out the Royal Enfield Service on Wheels boxes.

Not sure how you would get some but they look awesome.
They look like the Himalayan boxes.

The Trials version is the basically the same as any UCE model. They are a styling exercise based on the old 1950s trials model.

Here is a link to a Classic Motorcycle article with a photo.

You can see Royal Enfield did a good job of emulating the original bike. I like them.

Ok. I like it as well. But I thought RE was discontinuing the 500 single due to issues of the government kind?

The 500 is finished to be no more once the remaining stock is sold.

I think RE still hold a lot of stock on these and the bullets eBay is full of dealers selling them so they will be around for a long time yet.

Dealers were saying even last year that once the final 'Tribute' 500s have arrived from India where will be no more Bullets or Classics coming to the UK as 500 production stopped last year. There are still some new 500s of various models in stock at UK dealers, but already there is no stock left of some of the finishes - try and find a new Bullet Trials or Classic 500 in Squadron Blue for instance.
Past: CB125-T2, T500, GT500, Speed Triple, 955i Daytona. Now: Royal Enfield Bullet Trials 500
