Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6: All You Need To Know
The greener Bullet 350 has been officially launched
The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6 had reached dealerships weeks before its official launch and even the unofficial prices were revealed. Now, it has been officially launched. Here’s all the dope about this retro motorcycle.
Shares its motor with the Classic 350 BS6:
The Bullet 350 BS6 gets the same BS6 motor as the Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6. This 346cc air-cooled motor now gets fuel injection and delivers 19.3PS at 5250rpm and 28Nm at 4000rpm. It continues to use the same 5-speed gearbox as before.
Underpinnings remain unchanged:
Unlike the motor, the underpinnings have not been updated. The Bullet 350 BS6 continues to use the same 35mm telescopic forks and twin shock absorbers. Braking is via a 280mm front disc and a 153mm drum brake. It gets a single-channel ABS. The Bullet 350 BS6 continues to use 19-inch spoke wheels. While underpinnings remain unchanged, kerb weight has gone up by 1kg (2kg on ES variant).
Available in two variants:
The Bullet 350 ABS now comes in two variants: Std and ES. The primary difference between the two is the addition of a starter motor in the ES (electric start) variant. Other than that, the motorcycles get minor cosmetic differences.
Gets a new colour variant:
The Bullet 350 BS6 Std variant now gets a new Forest Green colour option that was previously available in the now discontinued Bullet 500. Other than that, the Std variant is available in black, Bullet Silver and Onyx Black colour options. While the black and Forest Black variant gets chrome tank badges, the Bullet Silver and Onyx Black colour variants get a simple sticker on the fuel tank and blacked-out engine fins, wheels and turn indicator covers. The more premium ES variant gets three colours: Jet Black, Regal Red and Royal Blue. It also gets a completely blacked-out motor.
Prices have gone up:
The Bullet 350 BS6 range now costs Rs 5,910 to Rs 6,829 more than the BS4 Bullet 500. The most affordable Bullet 350 BS6 models are the Bullet Silver and Onyx Black colour options. The Black and Forest Green colour variants are more expensive as they get chrome tank badges and chrome trim. The ES variants are the most expensive owing to the additional electric starter. Here is a detailed breakup of the prices.
