After the rear disc brake version of the Royal Enfield Bullet 500, now we get the ABS model too

The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 has recently joined the list of RE bikes that have been introduced with ABS (Antilock Braking System). Priced at ₹ 1.86 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Bullet 500 is the first Royal Enfield bike to get ABS in 2019, and according to some of the dealers we spoke to, the next in line is the Bullet 350. Interestingly enough, it was just last month that the company introduced rear disc brakes in both the 350 cc and 500 cc Bullets, and the former is expected to get ABS by March 2019.

Earlier, towards the end of December 2018, Royal Enfield had also introduced the ABS version of the Classic 350 Redditch edition. This means that save for the Bullet 350, the company’s entire fleet now comes with dual channel ABS as standard and that too before the new stringent safety norm, which requires all bike above 125 cc to come with ABS, kicks in, starting April 1, 2019.

Mechanically, the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 remains unchanged

There are no additional features introduced at this point, and the bike comes with the standard offerings like the Tiger-eye lamps, classic round headlamps, single-piece seat, pinstripes on the tank and side panels, and more. The bike, in its classic fashion, continues to come with spoked wheels, a 19-inch wheel up front and an 18-inch wheel at the back, shod in 90/90 and 120/80 section tyres respectively. Now, of course, both wheels come with disc brakes with dual channel ABS. The bike continues to use telescopic forks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear.


Powering the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 ABS is the same 499 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with fuel-injection that produces 27 bhp and 41 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.

New Delhi: 

A 42-year-old man was arrested on Saturday after he allegedly shot dead his eight-year-old son in a celebratory firing in northeast Delhi’s New Usmanpur, police said.

The incident comes days after a woman architect died when a former JD(U) leader fired celebratory shots in the air during a New Year’s eve party at his farm house in Fatehpur Beri.

The child was hit by a bullet on his right cheek during the celebratory firing, a senior police officer said. He was rushed to a hospital but he died, a police officer said.

“During investigation, the child’s father emerged as the prime suspect,” Atul Kumar Thakur, Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast), said.

The accused later confessed that he had taken the firearm from a man in Uttar Pradesh. He fired in the air and the bullet accidentally hit his son who was present at the celebration, police added.

The leaked images showcase the first proper glimpse of the Royal Enfield 350 and 500 Trials scrambler-styled motorcycles that are expected to go on sale around early 2019.

The Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Trials will continue with the same mechanical setup

Rumours have been rife about Royal Enfield bringing a Scrambler-styled motorcycle next year to the Indian market and while it was expected to be a new 650 cc offering, the latest set of leaked images say otherwise. According to the latest images emerged online, Royal Enfield is working on the Scrambler version of the Bullet 350 and Bullet 500 that is likely to go on sale in the first half of 2019. To be badged as the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials 350 and 500, the bikes look identical to the ones we’ve spotted testing in the past and will come with an upswept exhaust, knobby tyres, single seat, among other changes.

The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Trials gets a red frame and an Interceptor 650 inspired fuel tank

With the popularity of scramblers globally, it should not come as a surprise that Royal Enfield is looking to tap into the potential. The Trials edition has been on sale internationally for years now first introduced as an Electra 500 based offering in the UK, while there have been customisable kits for the standard models as well  The leaked images reveal most noticeably the upswept exhaust with the raised mudguard and a luggage rack in place of the pillion seat. The fenders are shorter too over the standard version.

The ground clearance appears to be similar to the stock model, while the suspension too appears to remain the same with no changes in the travel. We’ll have to wait though for RE to officially announce if there have been any changes made to the suspension. The frame though is finished in red on the Bullet 350 Trials, while the Bullet 500 Trials gets a green finished chassis that remains largely visible. Also visible are the fork gaiters for the front suspension and a black bezel for the headlamp.

Interestingly, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Trials gets an Interceptor 650 inspired fuel tank with the classic RE logo that certainly looks good, while the Bullet 500 Trials comes with a copy finished fuel tank in comparison. Mechanically, expect both bikes to continue using the 346 cc and 499 cc single-cylinder engines respectively, while also getting ABS as standard right from the launch.

The scrambler-styled Royal Enfield Trials bikes were originally sold back in the late forties and fifties, and the 350 trials bike also won a number of championships. So do expect the bike maker to dive into its history and tell us an interesting story around the Trials bikes. Prices will be at a premium over the standard versions, but it needs to be seen if production will be limited like some of RE’s previous special edition motorcycles. We expect to hear from the manufacturer soon about the Trials edition, which will remain unique to the segment.

Modi-Ji, For gods sake Forget Bullet Train, Says BJP Leader Laxmi Kanta Chawla  

नई दिल्ली:

भारतीय जनता पार्टी (BJP) की बुजुर्ग नेता और पंजाब की पूर्व मंत्री लक्ष्मीकांता चावला (Laxmi Kanta Chawla) ने प्रधानमंत्री नरेंद्र मोदी (Narendra Modi) और रेलमंत्री पीयूष गोयल (Piyush Goyal) को आड़े हाथों लिया है. उन्होंने आम जनता की तकलीफों के प्रति बेपरवाह रहने का आरोप लगाते हुए मोदी और गोयल की तीखी आलोचना की और उन्हें बुलेट ट्रेन (Bullet Train) के बारे में भूल जाने को कहा है. उनका एक वीडियो बुधवार को सोशल मीडिया पर वायरल हुआ, जिसमें वह ट्रेन में बैठकर मोदी से आम आदमी पर दया करने की अपील कर रही हैं. 


देखें VIDEO…



उन्होंने वीडियो में कहा, ‘मैं सरयू-यमुना एक्सप्रेस से सफर कर रही हूं. मुझे ट्रेन में 24 घंटे से आठ घंटे अधिक (32) घंटे हो चुके हैं. ट्रेन अपने निर्धारित समय से 9 घंटे विलंब से चल रही है. भगवान के लिए बुलेट ट्रेन को भूल जाइए और जो ट्रेन पहले से परिचालन में हैं उनपर ध्यान दीजिए.’ उन्होंने आगे कहा, ‘मोदीजी जनता दुखी है. किनके अच्छे दिन आए, हमें नहीं मालूम. लेकिन निश्चित तौर पर आमलोगों, गरीबों और बेरोजगारों के लिए अच्छे दिन नहीं आए. मैंने खुद देखा है कि इंजीनियरिंग डिप्लोमाधारी युवा छोटे-छोटे काम कर रहे हैं. आपने उनको क्या दिया?’

उन्होंने पीयूष गोयल की भी आलोचना की और कहा कि ट्रेन में यात्रियों के ट्वीट करने पर यात्रा कर रहे बच्चों के लिए दूध की व्यवस्था करने और बीमार लोगों के लिए डॉक्टर भेजने की बात महज प्रचार का साधन है. चावला ने कहा, ‘मैं रेलवे हेल्पलाइन 138 और 139 पर डॉयल रही हूं और आपको (गोयल) ईमेल भेजा है, लेकिन हमारी तकलीफ सुननेवाला कोई नहीं है. ट्रेन में खाना नहीं है. सीट टूटी हुई है. शौचालय की सीट गंदी है. दरवाजे काफी मुश्किल से खुलते हैं.’ उन्होंने रेलमंत्री से कहा कि कभी आम आदमी बनकर ट्रेन में यात्रा करके देखें कि यात्रियों को कितनी कठिनायों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है.

VIDEO: भारतीय रेल की लेटलतीफी खबर क्यों नहीं बनती?

उन्होंने कहा, ‘शताब्दी और राजधानी ट्रेन अगर अच्छी हैं तो क्या हुआ? मजदूरों, किसानों, सैनिकों और उनके परिवार जिन ट्रेनों में यात्रा करते हैं उनके बारे में क्या कहना है? प्रतीक्षालय के अभाव में कड़ाके की ठंड में रेलवे स्टेशनों पर खुले में सैकड़ों यात्री सो रहे हैं.’ चावला ने कहा, ‘अंधेर नगरी, चौपट राजा.’

The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 was offered in a drum brake setup only, and has received both front and rear disc brakes as part of the upgrade. The bike has witnessed a price hike of ₹ 12,000, as a result. Expected price to see a hike further once dual-channel ABS is available as standard on the motorcycle.

China To Build Underwater Bullet Train Route

The new route will transport travellers from Hangzhou — capital city of Zhejiang — to Zhoushan.


The Chinese government has approved a project to build the first underwater bullet train route in the country, a media report said on Thursday.

The line will connect Ningbo, a port city south of Shanghai, to Zhoushan, an archipelago off the east coast, CNN reported.

The proposed underwater tunnel will be a part of the 77-km Yong-Zhou Railway plan to boost tourism and create a two-hour-commute zone within Zhejiang province.

First mentioned in a government transportation plan in 2005, the feasibility study of the Yong-Zhou Railway plan was approved by Beijing in November.

Within the 77 km railway route, some 70.92 km of tracks will be newly built, including a 16.2 km undersea section.

The new route will transport travellers from Hangzhou — capital city of Zhejiang — to Zhoushan in 80 minutes.

The current journey takes about 4.5 hours by bus or a 2.5-hour drive by personal vehicle.

Seven stations are planned for the entire route, including four new stations and three redeveloped ones.

At a whopping 25.2 billion yuan ($3 billion), the project is expected to begin next year and is due for completion in 2025.

Cleric Caught With Live Bullet While Visiting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Arrested

New Delhi: 

A 39-year-old man who had gone to meet Arvind Kejriwal as part of a delegation of clerics on Monday was arrested after live bullets were found on him. This is the second breach of the Delhi Chief Minister’s security after a chilli powder attack on him last week. 

Mohammad Imran was among a dozen clerics who had gone to Arvind Kejriwal’s home for a public hearing or janta durbar, with a request to increase the salary paid by the Waqf Board. 

A bullet was found in his wallet by a security guard who was frisking him. 

Imran, a caretaker at a mosque called Masjid Bawli Wali, has been arrested under the stringent Arms Act. 

He told the police that he had found the bullets in the donation box of a mosque a few months ago, kept them in his wallet and forgot about them. He claimed he had planned to throw the bullets in the river Yamuna but decided to keep them in his wallet.

Last Thursday, a man was arrested after he flung chilli powder at Mr Kejriwal right outside his office – an incident that raised questions about the Chief Minister’s security and provoked allegations from the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that their chief was being targeted. 

The attacker, Anil Sharma, claimed that he had tried to meet the Chief Minister one-and-a-half-years ago but after he could not meet him, he broke the glass panes in the reception area of Delhi Secretariat. 

The police drew criticism as they initially claimed the chilli powder may have fallen “unintentionally” from Sharma’s pocket. Later, they said the 40-year-old was “unstable and incoherent”. 

Mr Kejriwal yesterday alleged that the BJP was behind the chilli powder attack on him as it was “baffled” by the “good work” done by the AAP government. Speaking at a one-day special session of the Delhi Assembly called to discuss the attack, Mr Kejriwal said, “Narendra Modi should resign if he cannot protect Delhi’s chief minister.”

Delhi: man come to meet CM Kejriwal with live bullet delhi police arrested

नई दिल्ली: दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल से एक युवक अपने पर्स में कारतूस रखकर मुलाकात करने आ गया. इस युवक का नाम मोहम्मद इमरान है. उसके पर्स से पुलिस ने .32 बोर का एक कारतूस बरामद किया है. पुलिस ने उसे अवैध कारतूस रखने के आरोप में गिरफ्तार कर लिया है. इमरान देशबंधु गुप्ता रोड की एक मस्जिद में मौलवी है. उसने पुलिस को बताया कि कुछ दिन पहले मस्जिद के दान के बक्शे में कोई ये कारतूस डाल गया था. इसके बाद उसने निकालकर अपने पर्स में रख लिया था. इमरान मौलवियों के उस समूह में शामिल था, जिसने सीएम केजरीवाल से मुलाकात कर वक्फ बोर्ड की द्वारा उनकी सैलरी में इजाफा करवाने का आग्रह किया था.

बता दें, केजरीवाल पर दिल्ली सचिवालय में हाल ही में मिर्च पाउडर फेंक कर हमला कर दिया गया था. जिसके बाद आम आदमी पार्टी ने दिल्ली सरकार और भाजपा पर निशाना साधा था. आम आदमी पार्टी ने आरोप लगाते हुए कहा था, ‘केजरीवाल की हत्या’ की साजिश रची जा रही है. केजरीवाल ने भी कहा था कि उन पर हमला साजिश के तहत किए जा रहे हैं.

अरविंद केजरीवाल बोले, मेरे उपर 2 साल के अंदर 4 बार हमले, ये लोग मुझे मरवाना चाहते हैं

सोमवार को गुरुग्राम के गौशाला ग्राउंड में आयोजित स्कूल-अस्पताल रैली में लोगों को संबोधित करते हुए केजरीवाल ने कहा कि मेरे ऊपर 2 साल के अंदर 4 हमले हुए. ये लोग मुझे मरवाना चाहते हैं. ये लोग मुझे जिंदा नहीं छोड़ेंगे. मुझे पता है कि मेरी जिंदगी बहुत छोटी है, लेकिन दोस्‍तों मेरी एक ही ख्‍वाहिश है कि जितने भी दिन जिंदा हूं, मेरी एक-एक सांस इस देश की सेवा के लिए जानी चाहिए. और जिस दिन मैं मरूं, मेरे शरीर के खून का एक-एक कतरा इस देश के लिए जाना चाहिए. मैं इनसे नहीं डरता. मैं मौत से नहीं डरता. इनको जो करना है, ये लोग कर लें. 

मनीष सिसोदिया बोले- BJP ने रची केजरीवाल की हत्या की साजिश, एलजी को भी थी जानकारी

साथ ही उन्होंने कहा, ‘मेरी सुरक्षा केंद्र सरकार के ऊपर है. प्रधानमंत्री जी के ऊपर है. भाजपा की केंद्र सरकार के ऊपर है. अगर 2 साल में 4 बार हमले होते हैं तो मन में तो आता ही है कि यही लोग करवा रहे हैं’. हाल में ही दिल्ली सचिवालय के भीतर अपने ऊपर हुए हमले का जिक्र करते हुए केजरीवाल ने कहा, “जिस दिन हमला हुआ था उसी दिन शाम को फोन आया राजनाथ जी का. बोले कि केजरीवाल जी कैसे हो? मैंने कहा कि आपने ही भेजा था. बस चूक हो गई आप लोगों से. वो तो मैंने चश्‍मा पहन रखा था नहीं तो आंखें खराब हो जाती’.
