Royal Enfield had introduced the BS6 compliant Bullet 350 last year in the market. The motorcycle is offered in two variants - Standard and ES (Electric Start). Recently, the Chennai-based bikemaker has introduced a new Forest Green color in the Standard variant of the retro motorcycle. It is retailed at Rs 1.33 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Earlier, the Standard variant of Bullet 350 was offered in a total of 3 color options - Bullet Silver, Onyx Black, and Black. On the other hand, the ES variant was sold in Regal Red, Royal Blue, and Jet Black colours.
No changes have been made in terms of design and engine specifications. Cosmetically, the bike features a single-piece tubular handlebar, single-piece seat setup, chromed out exhaust, a round-shaped headlamp with a chrome housing, rectangle-shaped tail lamp, and chromed turn signals & mirrors. In comparison to its predecessor, Royal Enfield has added a bigger catalytic converter to the exhaust header pipe so that the bike can easily comply with the BS6 emission norms.
The Bullet 350 is based on the same J platform as the Meteor 350. Mechanically, it is powered by a 346 cc single-cylinder OHC air-cooled fuel-injected engine. The motor churns out 19.1 bhp power at 5250 rpm and 28 Nm torque at 4000 rpm while being mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Suspension duties are taken care of by 35 mm telescopic front forks and twin shock absorbers with five-step preload adjustability towards the rear. In terms of brakes, the bike gets a 280 mm front disc with a two-piston brake caliper up front and a 153 mm rear drum brake coupled with a single-channel ABS.
