The new Royal Enfield Bullet 350 spotted: What to expect | Jobi Cool


The new generation Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is expected to be launched in the Indian market in the coming months. Mule version of this bike was seen recently. The motorbike is expected to get a new J series engine as the 349 cc single cylinder air and oil cooled SOHC unit will develop 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of peak torque.

The upcoming Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is reportedly expected to ensure less vibration and better responsiveness and a markedly better top speed compared to the outgoing model. It will be mated to a five-speed transmission. The bike will reportedly share similarities with the latest Classic 350 as the same cradle chassis is used and thus the overall curb weight will be reduced with significant improvements in ride quality and handling.

The new-generation Bullet 350 continues a retro design theme while the turn signals and tail lamps are similar to the classic 350. Additionally, the bike is expected to come with silver accents on the halogen headlamps, pilot lamps, tail lamps and indicators. While the signature chunky fenders, single-piece tubular grab rail, single-piece seat with white stitching and a fuel tank of its capacity are probably similar to the classic 350.

It will ride on 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wire spoked wheels like the Classic with tubed tires and braking duties will be handled by a single-channel ABS system with front and rear disc brakes. A single-pod semi-digital instrument cluster can also be expected while a Tripper navigation system could be offered as an option.

To recall, earlier this month, the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650 was also spotted. This bike is nearing its production and may be launched in India soon. Images of the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650, shared by Autocar India, show the 650cc test mule’s similarities to the concept SG650. The upcoming bike will have an upright seating position with mid-set footpegs and a high seat. Mirrors are standard yoke-mounted on the upcoming bike. The wheels feature a basic alloy design. The engine crash guard can be seen missing from the Royal Enfield Shotgun 650. The headlight, side panel, fuel tank and other elements remain unchanged as the SG650 concept.
