Riding high on the waves of nostalgia and charm, Royal Enfield has launched the newest iteration of the iconic Bullet 350. Let’s dive deep into what they’ve brought to the table.

Here are the key features of the new Bullet 350

  • 349cc, single-cylinder J-series engine
  • 20.2bhp at 6,100rpm and 27Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm
  • Five-speed gearbox
  • Telescopic front forks and dual rear shocks
  • Front and rear disc brakes (Standard and Classic trims)
  • Rear drum brake (Deluxe trim)
  • Semi-digital instrument cluster
  • Bulb illumination throughout

Design Evolution, Not Revolution

Royal Enfield has tactfully tweaked the Bullet 350’s design, ensuring it doesn’t stray far from its vintage roots. They’ve elongated the front fender and subtly reshaped the tank. A fresh seat design also graces this model. Yet, the quintessential round headlight and shimmering chrome elements loudly echo the bike’s storied history.

Engine: Retaining the Heartbeat

The heart of the Bullet 350, its engine, remains as powerful and efficient as ever. It now houses a 349cc, single-cylinder engine that fans can also find in siblings like the Classic 350, Hunter 350, and Meteor 350. This engine, with its rhythmic thump, churns out 20.2bhp at 6,100rpm and a peak torque of 27Nm at 4,000rpm. Paired with this beast is a robust five-speed gearbox ensuring smooth transitions on the road.

Modern Features with a Classic Touch

Although predominantly classic, the Bullet 350 does not shy away from modern amenities. Royal Enfield has integrated bulb illumination and presented riders with a semi-digital instrument cluster. This cluster, while retaining an analogue touch, digitally displays vital metrics like fuel level and trip details. However, the much-acclaimed tripper navigation remains conspicuously absent from this model.

Hardware: Built for the Roads Ahead

Royal Enfield didn’t just stop at design and features; they overhauled the Bullet 350’s core too. Introducing a new chassis, they optimized it for the J-series motor. On the suspension front, the bike boasts telescopic front forks and robust twin rear shocks. And for those adrenaline-fueled rides? They equipped the bike with responsive front and rear disc brakes, while the entry-level variant sports a rear drum brake aided by single-channel ABS.

Price and Availability

Royal Enfield has competitively priced the Bullet 350 at Rs. 1.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), ensuring it nestles comfortably between the Hunter 350 and the Classic 350 in their line-up. For those eager to get their hands on this machine, the good news is that bookings have already begun, and Royal Enfield will roll out deliveries starting 3 September.

Final Thoughts

With the Bullet 350, Royal Enfield reaffirms its commitment to blending tradition with modernity. While it retains its old-world charm, it does not compromise on performance and contemporary features. If you’re a fan of classic bikes with a modern twist, the Bullet 350 awaits!
