Here’s What We Can Expect From The More Eco-friendly Bullet 350


Unofficial bookings for the BS6 compliant version of Royal Enfield’s longest-running model have commenced, hinting at an imminent launch

Royal Enfield’s longest-running model, the Bullet 350, is all set to go green to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms. In fact, it seems that the Chennai-based bikemaker is all set to launch the Bullet 350 BS6 real soon as select dealers across India have started accepting unofficial bookings for the motorcycle. Here’s what we can expect from the BS6-compliant iteration of Royal Enfield’s most affordable motorcycle:

Can you reserve one? When will it be launched?

With select dealers opening up their order books unofficially, you can now book the BS6 Bullet 350 for a token amount of Rs 10,000. However, you may want to contact your local dealer as the booking amount could vary from dealer to dealer. Expect the bikemaker to launch the motorcycle in the coming weeks. When launched, it will be the brand’s most affordable BS6-compliant motorcycle. Speaking of which…

How much is it likely to cost?

The Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6 is around Rs 11,100 more expensive than its BS4-compliant version. Applying this delta and also considering the Bullet 350 is a more affordable bike in the brand’s lineup, expect the brand to command a premium of around Rs 10,000 more than the BS4-compliant Bullet 350. For reference, the Bullet 350 BS4 is priced from Rs 1,14,755 (ex-showroom Delhi).

Likely to come in new shades:

Royal Enfield is likely to introduce the Bullet 350 BS6 with new colour options, kind of like the more affordable colour variants of the current Bullet 350. These colour variants could feature a simpler tank sticker instead of the more expensive 3D ones with chrome finish. They may also get a single horn setup and could miss out on electric start (It’s standard on the Bullet 350 ES).

Likely to share the engine with the Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6:

The cult bikemaker has the habit of sharing powertrains across its range, so expect the same trend to continue with the upcoming Bullet 350 BS6 as well. It could be powered by the same powertrain as the Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6. This 346cc air-cooled fuel-injected motor produces 19.3PS (0.71PS less than the BS4 bike) at 5250rpm and 28Nm at 4000rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed transmission. Thanks to fuel injection, the ammeter in the instrument cluster will be replaced by an engine check light, marking the end of the iconic little device which has been in use for years in Royal Enfield motorcycles.

Could retain the same underpinnings as before:

The Royal Enfield Bullet 350’s underpinnings have been pretty standard and have worked well over the years. The traditional telescopic front fork, twin rear shock absorbers (gas-charged ones in the Bullet 350 ES variant), front 280mm disc (with single-channel ABS) and rear 153mm drum are expected to be retained. The spoke wheels could be shod with the same 3.25-inch tubed tyres on both ends as the BS4 version, too.
