Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6 standard variant colours:
The base version of the BS6-compliant motorcycle is simply called the Royal Enfield Bullet 350. It is available in Black, Forest Green, Bullet Silver and Onyx Black. The powerplant and the wheels in the Black and Forest Green colour variants come with a metal finish. The fenders and the side panels are all colour coded. Royal Enfield has equipped these two colour variants with a 3D chromed-out Royal Enfield badging on the fuel tank surrounded by hand-painted pinstripes for an authentic touch. These two colour variants are priced at Rs 1,27,750 (ex-showroom Delhi). Interestingly, the Forest Green colour was offered in the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 BS4. Now, Royal Enfield offers this paint scheme in the 350cc version as the 500cc bike is no longer on sale. For those who are wondering, this shade is road-legal. These two colour variants are apt for those who like the old-school look.

On the other hand, the Bullet Silver and Onyx Black are the least expensive colour variants of the Bullet 350 BS6 range. They are priced at Rs 1,21,583 (ex-showroom Delhi). Consequently, these two colour models feature all-black fenders and side panels. Only the fuel tank is colour coded here. The rims are finished in black and the engine fins get a matte black finish. However, the engine casing, the head, and the exhaust system get a metal finish. The fuel tank features a simple Royal Enfield sticker instead of the fancy 3D logo, helping keep costs in check. These two colour variants are ideal for those who want to get into the Royal Enfield lifestyle under a strict budget.
Royal Enfield Bullet 350 BS6 ES variant colours:
While the standard version lacks an electric starter motor, this version, as the name suggests, gets one. It also gets slightly different colour schemes: Regal Red, Royal Blue and Jet Black. All the colour variants are priced at Rs 1,37,194 (ex-showroom Delhi). This variant gets a colour coded fuel tank with a chromed-out yet simple Royal Enfield logo. The rest of the body panels including the fenders are all blacked-out. For a more stealthy look, the powertrain is completely draped in matte black but the exhaust system gets a contrasting metal finish. The spoke rims get the blacked-out treatment too.
We’d have liked it if the exhaust system had also got the all-black treatment. Either way, our personal choice is the Regal Red colour variant, but those who prefer a more subtle look should opt for the Jet Black colour model. The Royal Blue colour is also a good pick to stand out from the rest with its classic retro vibes.
