Royal Enfield Bullet has fans in all age groups. The very sound of the RE Bullet can send people into raptures. Kids can only watch with awe when a RE Bullet zooms past them, but not anymore.
A man from Kollam, Kerala has built a miniature electrically operated and fully functional Royal Enfield Bullet for his son. The video of the kid driving the bike has gone viral on the internet.
The miniature RE Bullet mimics the iconic motorcycle brand in all respects. It sports the same rugged design. The bike comes with an electric motor connected to the underlying engine. The man used fiber parts for manufacturing the small bike. The chassis comprises of steel parts. Measuring 122cm long and 65cm high, the miniature motorcycle is ideal for kids below 10 years of age.
The design includes the minute details of the iconic Royal Enfield Bullet with the long exhaust, RE logo, and the signature leg guards. The suspension looks identical as well. Other features include the unique circular headlamp along with the odometer and speedometer placed above it. The vehicle gets its power from an electric motor with the help of a battery. A conveyor belt drives the rear wheels instead of the chain.
The miniature RE Bullet clocks a maximum running time of three hours on a single charge. Being a miniature design for kids, the bike has limitations concerning speed. However, Royal Enfield is planning to manufacture an electric motorcycle and launch it in India as well as abroad. The details are not yet available.
A kid driving a RE Bullet, albeit miniature is a beautiful sight, but it would be better to teach the kid the virtues of safe driving at a young age.
