The 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is a new generation with a tweaked J-platform and a revised engine. Along with that, this new 350cc cruiser bike has received new features and some cosmetic changes. However, it continues to carry the signature silhouette of its predecessors.
As you know, this homegrown bike is among the bestselling Royal Enfield bikes in the country. Earlier, it used to be an entry-level offering, but now, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has taken the ‘entry-level’ status. The Bullet 350 positions itself between the Hunter 350 and the Classic 350.
Furthermore, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is offered in three variants: Base, Mid and Top. This offering has a starting price of Rs 1.74 lakh (ex-showroom).
So, without wasting time, let’s delve into this bike’s features and specifications. Let’s read on, then.
For starters, let’s talk about the underpinning of the Bullet 350. So, as mentioned earlier, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is based on the same chassis as before but in a revamped form. This bike is structured using a twin downtube spine frame, which is engineered to house a 349cc J-series motor. This single-cylinder, air- and oil-cooled engine is tuned to churn out 20.2 bhp at 6100 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 4000 rpm.
This engine makes the rear wheel spin via a standard five-speed manual transmission. In addition, this transmission works in tandem with a wet multiplate clutch. This type of clutch offers smooth gear shifts and boasts better durability than the conventional clutch infrastructure.
For your reference, a bike with an air- and oil-cooling system makes the engine oil cool via the air intake by the intercooler.
Furthermore, it has a top speed of 110 km/h.
The kerb weight of this bike is rated at 195 kg.
As for fuel economy, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350’s mileage ranges between 35 km/l and 40 km/l. Please note that this average mileage is based on the feedback from the owners. However, the ARAI mileage of this bike remains unknown. Further, considering the weight and size of the bike, the real-world mileage is quite impressive. In addition, the direct rival of the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is the Honda CB 350. You can, however, check out a comparison video between the 2023 Bullet 350 and the Honda CB 350.
Suspensions, Tyres and Brakes
As far as the suspension setup of this bike is concerned, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 stands on a 41mm (diameter) telescopic fork at the front and a six-step adjustable pre-load twin-tube emulsion shock absorber at the rear. The presence of an adjustable pre-load suspension can allow the rider to manually tune the suspension as per the preferences.
In addition, it is worth mentioning that this homegrown two-wheeler is engineered by keeping the conditions of Indian roads in mind. That said, this bike should offer a better ride quality than its predecessors.
Moreover, it will absorb the undulations and soak the bumps from potholes with ease.
In addition, the braking duties are taken care of by dual-disc brakes. It also benefits from the presence of dual-channel ABS. The combination of dual disc brakes and the dual-channel ABS increases the safety performance by a high margin.
