Technical specifications remain the same.
Royal Enfield has renamed the Royal Enfield Electra to Royal Enfield Bullet 350 ES. Thus, the Electra as such has not been discontinued, but has been categorised under the Standard Street Bullet branding, thus reducing ambiguity among buyers.
The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is available as the Bullet 350 in Black shade, and the Bullet 350 ES in Black, Silver, Maroon and Blue shades. The main difference between the Bullet 350 ES and the Bullet 350 is the availability of electric start on the former.

The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES use telescopic, 35 mm forks with 130 mm travel up front. At the back, the Bullet 350 gets twin shock absorbers with 5-step adjustable preload and 80 mm travel, whereas the Bullet 350 ES gets twin gas-charged shock absorbers with 5-step adjustable preload but the same 80 mm travel.
There are minor specification differences too among the motorcycles.
