Bikers know there is almost a cult following of Royal Enfield Bullet. The heavy ride is a favourite of many and is comparatively costlier to most bikes in the same power range. Interestingly, second hand Bullets continue to remain in demand for years as its fans wish to buy the older models. As such the bike has a great resale value.
This aspect of the bikes has interested thieves as well, a group of whom are stealing only Royal Enfield Bullets. When two of them were arrested by police in Gwalior recently, they gave a demo to the cops on how they used to break the lock and ride away – all in under 60 seconds.
A video of the thief showing the cops his ‘skills’ has gone viral on social media.

In the video, it took a thief less than 60 seconds to steal a locked Classic 350. Despite the fact that the suspected burglar appears to be in police custody, investigators are curious to see how the crook managed to breach the lock on the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and start the engine without the key.
While bracing himself on the pillion grab rail, the thief applies force in the opposite direction from how the handlebars move. Following the lock break, the burglar cuts the ignition wire and fuse connector hidden behind the headlight attached to the battery terminals.
Police in Gwalior’s Maharajpura have caught the two thieves and recovered three bikes from them.
