IMHO, the moment the UCE hits will be the moment that the Bullet ceases to be a Bullet.Not that the new UCE bike won't be great on it's own merits, I just think that it's much too far a departure from the original to still be badged a Bullet. To still call it a Bullet would disgrace the legacy of Bullet and a dis-service to the new bike.It will be the "New Beetle" or the BMW-Mini of the motorcycle world.
Naturally, we are all entitled to our own opinion, but I think that's a bit silly. I see it simply as part of the evolution of the Bullet. There's been no shortage of vehicles out there that have gone through more evolution in 5 years than the Bullet has in 50 years. The Bullet is getting a new powerplant, but will likely still look and feel basically like a Bullet. The "New Beetle" and BMW "Mini-Cooper" are completely unrelated to their namesakes beyond some basic design cues.Eamon
The new UCE Bullet called the "C5" is based on an older Bullet model than the current Bullet. After it is out it will be interesting to see what people call it. I can guarantee you that it will NOT be available as a Military model in 2009. If you want a Military get the AVL. It will be less expensive and parts will be available for a long time.
