Royal Enfield is on a mission to update its 350cc lineup. Meteor 350, which debuted in 2020, was the first bike to use the all-new platform and J-series engine. The new-generation Classic 350 debuted last year, and the Hunter 350 debuted this year. It is now the turn of the Bullet 350 to receive the generation update.
While some visual changes have been made, the new-generation Bullet retains much of its core character. A new headlamp and taillamp are among the key changes visible on test mules.
Chrome highlights have been used liberally, and they are on par with the existing Bullet. Chrome accents can be found on the headlamp, turn indicators, mirrors, and fuel tank. Another feature that makes the bike stand out on the street is the long chrome-plated exhaust pipe.
Pratyush Rout created digital renders of the 2023 Bullet 350 based on production-spec spy shots. Please keep in mind that these renderings were created by an independent artist and were not commissioned by Royal Enfield.
It is possible that some new colour options for the new-generation Bullet 350 will be introduced. Standard Bullet is currently available in the colours Black, Onyx Black, and Bullet Silver. The Bullet ES (Electric Start) variant comes in more vibrant colours like Regal Red and Royal Blue.
Riding ergonomics remain largely unchanged, the single-piece saddle could benefit from higher-quality foam. The handlebars on the bike are wide and ergonomically placed for maximum comfort and minimal strain. The seat's scooted-out rider section ensures maximum comfort and control. The pillion seat is long and wide, with grab rails for added convenience and safety.
The new Bullet will be built on the new 350cc platform that is currently used by the Meteor and the new Classic 350. A new J-series unit comes with 5-speed manual transmission. It produces a max power of 20.2 bhp and a peak torque of 27 Nm.
