The leaked presentation slides reveal updates only on the Bullet Electra 350, the Classic 350, the Classic 500 and the Bullet 500. It is unclear if these updates will be introduced only in India.

The 2016 Bullet Classic 350 would be offered in new, Chestnut Red and Marshal Green, while the current options are Black, Silver, Ash, Maroon and Lagoon Blue.
