Royal Enfield has announced the launch of the new Bullet 350 and the Bullet 350 ES. The Chennai-based two-wheeler brand has added new colours to the Bullet 350 range to give it a refreshed look. The Bullet 350 is available at INR 1.12 lakh* while the Bullet 350 ES (Electric Start) can be purchased at INR 1.26 lakh*.
Check out the prices* of the new Bullet 350 and the Bullet 350 ES (compared to the previous version) below:
- New Bullet 350: INR 1.12 lakh (vs INR 1.21 lakh)
- New Bullet 350 ES: INR 1.21 lakh (vs. INR 1.34 lakh)
The motorcycle has already started to arrive at dealerships, and we saw the photographs of different colour options earlier today. The new Bullet 350 range is available in six colour options. The Bullet 350 can be purchased in Bullet Silver, Sapphire Bullet Blue and Bullet Onyx Black paint. The Electric Start version is available in Jet Black, Regal Red and Royal Blue options.
Most of the chrome parts from the previous variants have been given a blacked-out look on the new model. The ES variant features a completely black finish to the engine, while the standard 350 uses a brushed silver finish to the crankcase and the head. The Royal Enfield insignia is also different on the two variants. The Bullet 350 ES gets the Royal Enfield branding, while the Bullet 350 packs winged graphic logo on the fuel tank.
Styling cues include a round headlight with chrome mask, twin-pod instrument console with analogue meters, teardrop fuel tank design with chrome filler cap, ribbed-style cover on the saddle and black side panels with Bullet 350 branding. The entry-level models continue to use wire-spoke units with tube tyres. The spokes retain the chrome finish, while the walls get a black colour.
The budget-specific hardware includes a drum brake at the rear, a disc at the front and a single-channel ABS. Conventional telescopic front forks and twin-sided springs continue to perform the shock absorption duties.
Engine specifications continue to feature the BS-IV compliant 346 cc air-cooled motor. Paired to a five-speed gearbox, the single-cylinder mill delivers 20.07 PS of peak power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of max torque at 4,000 rpm. The BS-VI compliant model with fuel injection technology will arrive by early next year.
Along with the new Bullet range, Royal Enfield has also the launch of a new initiative on improving Cost of Ownership. Authorised service centres will now use a new set of process, technology and a new mix of semi-synthetic oil for servicing. With the new initiative, the service interval of motorcycles will increase from being 3 months / 3,000 km to 6 months / 5,000 km. The oil change interval now stands at 12 months or 10,000 km, as against 6 months or 5,000 km earlier.
