Q. I have shortlisted Bullet 350 kick start Bullet Standard 500 and Benelli Imperiale 400, please suggest which bike would be better?
  • The Bullet 500 is one motorcycle that’s at home for both grocery runs and long rides on the highway. Carburetted engine means it is relatively simpler than the fuel-injected counterparts and is easier to maintain as well. On the other hand, if you’re a die-hard Royal Enfield fan under a budget, the Bullet 350 is the one you should go for. Spending slightly more on the ‘ES’ variant will award you with better features, enhancing the riding experience in this motorcycle. Benelli Imperiale 400 is the new player in the market and though it isn’t necessarily the benchmark in any singular performance aspect (refinement and cruising ability aside), it presents to you a riding experience that is intensely fulfilling. In order to know which bike would be a more suitable companion, we'd recommend taking a test ride.

  • Thanks zigwheels
Q. Which is the better option in bullet. Standard 350 or Electra 350
  • Standard if you want the iconic brand with all its charm.. hand drawn lines on tank crank weight..no self start.so.e are missing now. on other hand you hate to kick go for electra ..you will not choose any charm ad you can get the tank of standard or other customisations additional abs disc brakes are now an option .so go for this
  • If you are choosing look wise I would say standard 350,but if you want practicality I would suggest electra 350.I would choose electra because standard 350 doesn't come with electric start. And if you're on a tight budget standard 350 will be more practical.
  • Standard 350 is kick start version without disk brakes only full black color . (Original Retro look & Road presence ) Electra 350 comes with Electric start , disk brakes , Chrome finish , Color choice is there. (Road presence & Best features) Classic 350 is mixture of modern & Retro with Electric start , disk brakes , Color choice is there. (Strong Road presence ) .All the bikes are fitted with same engine & Gearbox.

Q. What is the difference between classic 350 & Bullet 350?
  • If you want that old charm and if you want the real feel of riding a bullet then standard 350 is your right choice.But if you want a little more advanced bullet then classic is a good choice. Standard 350 has hand-painted gold lines on the fuel tank which is fantastic compared to the sticker in classic 350.Classic 350 has split seats which are more comfortable than the long single seat in standard 350.Engine wise and power wise there is no difference.Classic 350 comes with rear disc brakes while standard 350 only have front discs.
  • Bullet is bullet 350 cc standard with black tanks with hand drawn golden lines.enfield thought of major update making it little more powerful self start option split seat which changed the fortune of the company.New young riders opted for it putting mega silencers while bullet fans went for second hand to hear old thumps while some brought standard for her crank weight and cruising on it.to be continued...Thanks
  • Classic World war inspired bike , Bullet is the original degns of the RE stable. Engine is the same is terms of bhp and torque. The difference is the split seats on the classic and 19inch front wheel and 18inch rear wheel. on the bullet its a single seat with 19inch wheels on both the front and back , the ride is higer in bullet compared the classic it suits for taller people and is comfortable on long rides.
