UCE pricing announcement
« on: December 04, 2008, 07:55:11 PM »
OK, As promised you heard it here first. A good reason to be a member of the forum - inside information. Here is our pricing for 2009. These prices are MSRP and do NOT include shipping, set-up, taxes, bailout surcharges etc.) - just kidding about the surcharges
Bullet Classic with Lean-Burn engine - $5349
Bullet Deluxe with Lean- Burn engine - $5449
Bullet Military with Lean-Burn engine -  $5545
Bullet Electra with Lean-Burn engine -  $5745

Bullet Classic G-5 with UCE engine  -    $5995
Bullet Classic G-5 Deluxe with UCE  -    $6095
Bullet Classic C-5 with UCE engine  -    $6395

Notes: This will be the last year for the traditional Classics, Deluxes and Militaries. In 2010 we are currently scheduled to move to all UCE engines and the corresponding body styles. This will also be the last year for all drum brake bikes. The Electra, G-5 and C-5 all have a front disc brake which will become standard for all bikes in 2010.
If you want the traditional Royal Enfield this is the last year that they will be available, better get one before they are gone. As you can see there is also a substantial price difference between the Lean-Burn Bullets and the UCE Bullets.

The G-5 will get here sometime in the spring. It will initially be available as a Classic with solid paint and pinstriped fenders in Black and V. Green. The G-5 Deluxe will be available in Black and Red. The G-5 will not be available as a Military model initially.

The C-5 will be available in late spring (best case). It will be available in Turquoise, Red and Black.

I am not certain that the G-5 won't have a kickstart, I guess we'll have to see.

$6500 out the door for the model I want--SOLD!!  Let me get finances in order--anybody interested in a 2007 Harley-Davidson FXDB in excellent condition with many expensive extras?--only $13,000. :)  Must sell situation, so come one, come all!  (Also, the preference for kickstart means nothing to me --I'd rather push a button, if I can--I guess I'm just old and lazy!!)  8)

We did the best we could on pricing. We are reducing our margin in hopes that it is a good seller.

So, your MSRP's come in under the shotgun estimates floating about.

At first blush I would have headed directly to the C-5 but now that I look at the pictures of the G-5, I'm not so sure.  I like the chromed tank and fenders and also the fork boots.

As the 70's were my formative years, bike-wise, I like the seat as well.  We are "spoiled for choice" as the British say.

The G has the thicker seat but the C has a sprung seat.  Wonder which, ultimately, has the best ride?

Assuming I still have a job this spring, I will have to check out the Georgia dealer.

A Very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year!!!
Long live the Bullets and those who ride them!

Keep the shiny side up, the boots on the pegs and best REgards,

Wow, sounds like an extremely modest price increase for the UCE. I hope they sell like hotcakes for you - Merry Christmas to us all!

I'm confused, will the C-5 be available with a dual seat?
There's something that doesn't make sense... let's go and poke it with a stick.

One of the photos from the show displayed the C5 with a pillion pad on it, so I think the answer would be "yes" in the sense of a pillion, but perhaps as an option.
I've never seen any photo of the C5 with one of the regular Bullet dual-seats.
Kevin will be able to clarify.

I can't wait to see what that Military UCE will be like whenever it hits. I have this weird feeling we won't see it for like five years.

Wow, that's better than what I expected for prices. 

The angle and color of the G-5 photo above (the 2nd one) reminds me very much of the Yamaha SR500 advertisement that won me over in 1978. 

Is that photo the Deluxe G-5? 

Anyway, things look very promising.  Thanks Kevin.

As it stands the C-5 will come with a solo seat and a pillion seat which can be removed. There is a possibility that a dual seat will be an aftermarket option.

Yes that is the G-5 Deluxe, and I think we will have a Military by the end of 2009
