Generally there is impression that Bullet is for the well built or heafty as its heavy to handle. However in reality its not so. Anybody good enough inriding bikes can also handle ullet or thunderbird etc. Only thing to keep in mind is that it would be comparitively tougher (but not impossible) if the bike gets punchured and to be towed to garage.

Hi Vijay, I guess there should not be any issue as long as you are taking bike on long drive. But if you ride in city traffic then manouvering bike could be uncomfortable due to wide handle bar. Another thing is wide bucket seat though it is low hight but it needs proper leg length. I would recommend you to take a proper test ride. try it in city condition too. You can try if changing handle position or Electra seat.
You can find other details about the bike in my blog.

I know Enfield is Enfield but you can look for Bajaj Avenger, which excellent bike and will suit to your hight.
