Royal Enfield LIGHTNING 535
After Eicher’s investment, RE could improve its manufacuring equipment, etc. And also RE planed new style bike and new style bike life. It’s just this model named “Lightning”. Lightning had a bigger displacement than Bullet and was launched as the first super bike by RE in 1997. But in present time, it is out of product. This might be caused by halfway style design and mismatch between the engine power and the chassis. Lightning has following features. – Pull back handle bar. – Tear-drop fuel tank. – Separated sheet. – Sissy bar for pillion. – 12 V ac/dc system with 45/40 W headlamps. – Slim front and rear mudguards. Considering this failure, RE made new model named “Thunderbird” again.
