The upcoming Royal Enfield Bullet 350 has been spotted testing once more, giving us a better look at the bike. Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is expected to receive the new J-series engine. It currently powers the entire 350cc lineup of Royal Enfield.
The Bullet 350's shares its design largely with the Classic 350, with a few subtle differences. For starters, the two-piece seat on the Bullet 350 is replaced by a single-piece unit, and the rear fender design differs from that of the Classic.
The bike seen here has the same tail lamp and indicators as the Classic 350. While the current UCE-powered Bullet 350 lacks any electronic features. The upcoming model may include the Tripper navigation pod (at least as an optional extra).
The J-series engine currently produces 20 horsepower and 27 Nm of peak torque in the three models it powers. And these figures are expected to remain unchanged in the Bullet 350. This engine is housed in the same double-downtube frame as other new-age Enfields.
RE Bullet 350 is currently priced between Rs 1.48 lakh and Rs 1.63 lakh (ex-showroom, India), making it the most affordable model in RE's current lineup. Rivals for the Bullet 350 include the Benelli Imperiale, Honda H'ness CB350, and Jawa.
Given the plethora of changes that this new model will bring to the table. We expect that it will command a significant premium over the current model. It remains to be seen whether the Bullet 350 in J-series form will keep the title of most affordable RE. Or if the Hunter 350 will take over as the entry point into the company's vast world.
