RE Bullet Standard Pros & Cons
Pros of Bullet Standard Model
# Abundance of Torque
The torque value on offer makes Bullet 350 the most relaxed riding machine on the Indian roads around this segment. You are never forced to rev extra in order to achieve that smooth 'leave the traffic behind' feel. Even bigger gears are not at all disturbing within city limits on the Bullet Standard model.
# Class-leading Style
The curvy fuel tank, straight seat, massive fenders, and huge tires are all present here to achieve that commanding on-road style on the Bullet. The presence feels prominent with the long wheelbase and straight riding position for both pillion as well as the rider.
# Sensible Chrome Use
Bullet Standard model is one among a limited number of bikes that use chrome with care and perfection. Unlike commuters where chrome is oddly placed to fetch attention, the Bullet 350 features limited chrome use on the exhaust, headlight ring, and rear dual spring caps. The indicators are also an addition to this list.
Made with utmost attention towards the comfort of the rider, the Bullet Standard model comes with a relaxed handlebar, well-padded seat and forward biased leg position for easy long distance riding. It also comes with huge 19-inch wheels for better absorption of potholes seen around the roads.

Cons of Bullet 350 (Standard)
# Lack of Equipment
Although most buyers retrofit a disc brake to this model, the brand is still missing on the must-have safety feature. The electric starter is not even available as an option on the Standard variant. Also, the use of spoke wheels results in tube-type tires for the bike.
The bike weighs too much for its size, leaving many buyers in the middle of decision making due to this fact. Not just that, the lack of features feel even more dominating when the weight is taken into account.
# High Price
At present, the Bullet 350 is available with a price tag of INR 1.39 lakh (on-road Mumbai). Taking into consideration the value for money factor, the motorcycle seems to be priced on the higher side as other brands like Yamaha and Bajaj offer excellent value for money bikes in this price range.
