The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6 range has been launched. It is available in two variants: Standard and ES. The Standard variant is available in four colours: Black, Forest Green, Bullet Silver and Onyx Black. You might remember that Forest Green is a colour option that was available earlier in the Bullet 500. Royal Enfield has priced the Black and Forest Green colour variants at Rs 1,27,750, which is Rs 5,910 dearer than the BS4-compliant version.
On the other hand, the Bullet Silver and Onyx Black colour variants are priced at 1,21,583, which makes them more expensive than the BS4-compliant versions of the same colour variants by Rs 6,828. These two colours are the most affordable BS6-compliant motorcycles from Royal Enfield’s stable. To keep costs in check, they get simpler tank stickers with a colour-coded fuel tank and a blacked-out theme on the engine fins, underpinnings and the rest of the bodywork. The Black and Forest Green colours come with a chromed-out 3D logo on the fuel tank along with hand-painted pinstripes and metal finish on the powertrain. And yes, the Forest Green colour is road-legal.
The Bullet 350 ES BS6 is available in three colours: Jet Black, Regal Red and Royal Blue. All of them are priced at Rs 1,37,194, which is Rs 6,829 dearer than the BS4-compliant version. All the three colour variants get a colour-coded fuel tank with simple 3D Royal Enfield logo, black bodywork and a fully blacked-out powertrain and underpinnings.
All the variants are powered by the same Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6 motor. The 346cc air-cooled, fuel-injected engine generates 19.3PS at 5250rpm and 28Nm at 4000rpm. It works in tandem with a 5-speed transmission. The underpinnings have remained unchanged. It gets a 35mm telescopic front fork and twin shock absorbers at the rear. Brakes include a 280mm disc up front with single-channel ABS and a 153mm drum at the rear.
Thanks to the emissions-restricting equipment, the kerb weight for the Standard variant has gone up by 1kg, at 186kg. Interestingly, the Bullet 350 ES variant sees a 2kg increase in weight, tipping the scales at 191kg, kerb.
Unofficial bookings of the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6 were already open at select dealerships in February and the motorcycle started arriving at showrooms in March. Now, expect deliveries to commence once the whole COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic situation in India dies down.
