The 346cc engine is good for 19.8 BHP and 28 Nm of torque while it now uses a 5-speed gearbox for better fuel efficiency and enhanced driving pleasure.

Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Review

Overview

Bullet, as soon as we hear this word, the first thing that comes to our mind is a picture of a macho bike making a thumping sound. This bike holds the record for the longest production run bike in India since 1955. What makes this bike a living legend, let’s find out.

The vintage look of Bullet is the biggest USP of this bike. Give it a look and this bike takes you back in time. It looks like a bike of the ’60s which has a strong road presence thanks to its heavy structure and metal. It has a typical circular headlight with twin pilot lamps on both sides. This bike lacks cowl, visor and features black colored circular rear view mirrors on its handlebar. Its full-size fuel tank features classic styling on it which gives it retro look when seen from either side. It has body colored tool kit on its both sides and you will also notice it’s extremely long chrome finished silencer, brake pedal, and engine. Bullet has a familiar seat which also has an integrated steel grab rail at the back. The rear styling of this bike features its chrome finished rear fender which displays its number plate and also carries its tail light.

The completely analog instrument console lacks a tachometer and features speedometer and odometer in a circular dial which is surrounded by a chrome ring. Its fuel gauge is also placed just below its speedometer with other noticeable indicators. Bullet uses a 4-stroke, 346cc UCE engine. This air-cooled engine is capable of producing a power output of 19.8 bhp at 5250 rpm. The single cylinder of this engine musters up a torque output of 28 Nm which is available at 4000 rpm. The bullet is equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox with one gear down and four gears up-shift pattern.

This is a very powerful engine which offers incredible low and mid-range. The power tapers off as soon as 5000 rpm so the bike does everything in a quick manner. The gear ratios of this bike are relatively taller so that you can effectively use the throttle of this bike. The gear transitions are not butter like smooth as you need to put some effort while making transitions. The bike avoids frequent gear transitions thanks to its huge amount of torque. The bike starts building torque as early as 2000 rpm. It helps this bike a lot to move frequently in city traffic. This engine is the first choice of many riders who go for hill rides where you need a lot of power at low rpm. The bike never feels strained in such conditions and impresses you with its strong performance. The bullet does 0-100 km/hr in less than 16 seconds and can cruise at the top speed of 95 km/hr. Royal Enfield has worked on the thumping sound of Bullet in order to lower down the noise pollution. The bike makes less sound than its previous generation models.

Royal Enfield Bullet may give you a fuel economy of around 30 kmpl in city conditions while these figures may increase to 45 kmpl on highways. Being a rider, you get optimum comfort on this bike while driving it. It has a wide seat which makes it extremely comfortable on long journeys. The seat feels well positioned and its handlebar seems well in reach. Its handlebar gives you a wide chest riding posture which gives you confidence. Royal Enfield Bullet also offers a firm palm grip but you may notice few vibrations on this handlebar. The foot pegs of Bullet are placed in the front which helps you to relax on long journeys. The bike has a lockable tool kit and apart from this, there is no storage space in this bike. Bullet has a pass button and powerful headlight for your safety which offers you bright vision at night.

Bullet’s suspension system has telescopic front forks and swing arm with gas-filled shock absorbers at the back. This bike has an awesome wheelbase of 1370 mm which helps this heavy machine to maintain its stability around corners. It offers superb handling on highways and feels quite relaxed in the city also. The ground clearance of 140 mm improves its handling at high speeds. Its suspension can digest most of the potholes easily and avail you a comfortable ride in city conditions.

Royal Enfield Bullet has 19 inches spoke wheels and it’s only offered in one variant and black color. The bike is far away from modernity as it has no option of electric start and digital instrument console. We agree it has a powerful and refined engine but that doesn’t prove its worthiness. Only a few people who are a true fan of Bullet may find it a complete value for money bike.
