Royal Enfield’s dealerships have confirmed the launch of the Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES with ABS. However, unlike the rest of the company’s portfolio, the entry-level Bullets get a single-channel ABS unit instead of a dual-channel setup. As a result, the base model is priced at Rs 1.21 lakh while the electric start variant retails at 1.35 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom Pune). That’s a price hike of a little over Rs 3,500 and Rs 1,600, respectively, over their non-ABS variants. With the latest update, Royal Enfield’s entire portfolio now complies with the latest safety regulations.
Interestingly, the price hike on the Electric Start (ES) variant is quite minor since it already featured a front disc brake and only needed the addition of an ABS unit. On the other hand, the base model, which came equipped with drum brakes at both ends earlier, now features a front disc brake paired with a single-channel ABS, resulting in a higher premium over its non-ABS variant.
Both bikes are powered by same 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that generates 20.07PS at 5250rpm and 28Nm of peak torque at 4000rpm. The motor comes mated to a 5-speed transmission. The Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES also share the same underpinnings. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and twin gas charged shock absorbers at the rear. The braking setup comprises of a single 280mm disc brake up front aided by a single-channel ABS unit and a 153mm drum unit at the rear.
