The Royal Enfield Bullet Phantom is an EV based on the Bullet Classic 500. Though the Classic 500 is no longer on sale in India, a UK based company called Electric Classic Cars has come up with an EV version of the bike. They transformed the Classic 500 into an EV and the outcome is quite great!
Here we see that Royal Enfield Bullet Photon has got a large battery pack which is accompanied by 3D stickers to make the bike look aesthetically beautiful and appealing! The batteries are 2.5 Kwh LG Chem batteries. This one is a rear-wheel-drive so has the motor mounted to the rear wheel hub. This reduces the frictional losses and also the chain or belt noises.
Talking about the performance capacity of the Royal Enfield Bullet Phantom, we see that the motor is capable of gaining 80kmph from 48kmph in about 6 seconds! The figure is really impressive in case of a bike which weighs around 200kgs. This would be the fun-to-ride bike for all those bullet lovers out there!. The battery has a capability to charge from 0-100 in about 90 minutes.
The Royal Enfield Bullet Phantom has retained the cycle parts that were there on the Classic 500. The 37mm telescopic forks at the front and the twin shock absorbers at the back form the suspension system of the electric bike.

The overall design of the Royal Enfield Bullet Phantom remains the same as the Bullet Classic 500. Electric Classic Cars have made sure that this bike doesn’t look any different from the cult that has inspired them to make this one. The headlight is now an LED unit. The foglamps, as they appeared on the Classic 500 are now the turn indicators. There is a single brown seat as of now on this EV. We are yet to see if this vehicle becomes a reality anytime for the Indian market.
