Your 90/90-19  = 25.5" is closer in diameter to the stock rear 110/80-18 =25.2" and sure looks great.  The OEM front 90/90-18 =24.4" does seem a bit puny for a Bullet.

The Indian Classic 500 (US C5) does seem to look a bit more robust with a 120/80-18 =25.7" rear as OEM.
And that rear tire their using WOULD have a larger contact patch ;)  I wonder if they went to a wider rear Rim ? You could probably put a 120 on ours  with out a problem.
I have looked at mine and there looked like plenty of room. Do you know what brand tire they are using?

 Yeah it looks like a 120 would fit on the rear rim.

Tires are MRF Zappers, an Indian brand. Here are some photographs, posted I am guessing by SSR.
