I have been using STD 350 for 8 months now and its terrible ! MY FIRST 6 MONTHS WHERE OKAY OKAY ! BUT AFTER THAT I STARTED TO HEAVY AND LOUD TAPET NOISE (TAK TAK) WHILE ON LOW RPM AND HIGH RPM ! I HAD TO INCREASE MY IDLE RPM SO TO COME OVER AND IT DROPPED MY MILEAGE ALL THE WAY FROM 42-46 TO 30-34 2 ND THE BREAKS ITS ABSOLUTELY SH*T , TYRES GET LOCKED SOO EASILY AND I HAVE FALLEN ALMOST 4 TIMES IN 8 MONTHS. 3RD THE KICKER ! IT WAS COMFY FOR 6 MONTH AFTER THAT I HAD TO KICK NEARLY 10-20. TIMES EACH TIME TO START THE VEHICLE ! I AM HAVING SERIOUS LEG ACHES WHILE ON. BED. 4TH I KNOW IT SOUNDS WIERD BUT THE VIBERATIONS , I HAD TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE DOCTER FOR MY PAIN IN THE BALLS DUE TO HEAVY VIBERATIONS ! TRUST ME IT IS REAL , I WOULDN'T SUGGEST YOU TO GO WITH A 1.36 LAKH WORTH STEAL CRAP !
Classic 350 is a better option if you are ready to put some cash . Bullet standard comes at a lower price than the classic so it has its pros and cons accordingly. Bullet standard comes with slim tyres , single seat and the older look of the bullet.where as the classic 350 comes much good looking due to its split seats and bigger tyres for better road grip . Even the handle and seating comfort differs in both .
Both are different in there own respective style. Classic has switch start, you can remove the Pillion seat as well, in case if you want to enjoy that single ride feeling, on the other hand standard is kick start which creates problems in city, pillion seat can not be removed. So I would suggest go for the test ride for both and than select

I definitely prefer classic. Electra model has a small width tyre when compered to classic...The Electra model is low cost when compered to classic...Have a test ride on your nearby Royal Enfield showroom and ask the other details
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.
