Upcoming Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Engine
The upcoming Bullet 350 is expected to be powered by the same J-series engine found in other 350cc offerings from the Chennai-based manufacturer. Currently, this engine is good for 20bhp and 27Nm across the three models supported, and these figures are likely to remain unchanged in the Bullet 350. This engine has the same double downtube frame derived from other new age Enfields, which gets rid of the single cradle utilitarian unit.
Upcoming Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Design and Features
The design of the Bullet 350 is very similar to the Classic 350 with some distinctive features. For starters, the Bullet 350’s two-piece seat gets replaced with a one-piece unit and the rear fender design also differs from the Classic.
The bike seen here has the same tail lamps and indicators as the Classic 350, and will likely carry over to the production-ready model. While the current UCE-powered Bullet 350 has no electronic features to claim, the upcoming model will most likely feature a tripper navigation module (at least as an option).
Upcoming Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Price and Competitors
Currently, the Bullet 350 is priced between ₹ 1.48 Lakh – ₹ 1.63 Lakh (ex-showroom, India), making it the most affordable model in the current RE lineup. Though the new model will bring in all the changes, we expect it to carry a significant premium over the existing model.
With Hunter 350 priced between Rs 1.50-1.68 lakh, it remains to be seen whether Bullet 350 will retain the tag of cheapest RE under the guise of J-series or will Hunter 350 mantle. Entry point into the vast world of society.
