Royal Enfield introduced the Bullet Trials Works Replica 350 and 500 in the Indian market at ex-showroom (pan-India) price tags of INR 1,62,345 and INR 2,07,104 respectively. The motorcycle has started to arrive at the dealerships, and potential buyers could book one for a token amount of INR 5,000.
The Bullet Trials Works Replica pay homage to Johnny Brittain’s champion Bullet and the Royal Enfield Factory Team’s success at the International Six Days’ Trials. The motorcycles are based on the standard Classic 350 and 500 models from Royal Enfield.
Standard accessories include dual-purpose tyres, upswept exhaust, rider-only saddle and a luggage rack at the back instead of a pillion seat. The 350 cc and the 500 cc models are distinguished with specific colours to the chassis. The 350 gets a red painted frame while the 500 features olive green coloured chassis. The colours could also be seen on the sub-frame, swingarm, front fender mounts and the centre stand.
The motorcycles could be customised with 30 genuine motorcycle accessories that could be purchased right from the dealerships. The options extras include headlight grille, bash plate, shorter front and rear fenders, and engine guard among others.
The Bullet Trials Works Replica comes with revised, off-road friendly ergonomics that have been achieved with the installation of a tall-set handlebar for better reach while standing on the footpegs. Unfortunately, the motorcycles do not get off-road style footpegs for better grip. The wheels diameters are identical the standard models, and the Bullet Trials Works Replica duo run on a 19-inch wheel at the front and an 18-inch unit at the back.
The mechanical specifications remain identical to the standard Classic 350 and Classic 500 models. The Bullet Trials Works Replica 350 uses a 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled motor makes 19.8 bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque. The Bullet Trials Works Replica 500, on the other hand, features a 499cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 27.1 bhp and 41 Nm of peak torque. Both motorcycles employ a 5-speed gearbox.
Hardware specifications have been carried forward from the standard Classic motorcycles and stopping power comes from disc brakes on both ends. The safety net of dual-channel ABS comes as standard. Conventional, right side up telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear perform shock absorption tasks.
