According to recent reports, the pre-bookings for the BS6 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 have commenced unofficially at selected dealerships with a token amount of INR 10,000. One of the most famous motorcycles with an updated engine is expected to be launched officially in the coming days while is expected to get a premium of INR 10,000-INR 12,000 over its existing BS4 price tag of INR 1,21,840 (starting ex-showroom price, Delhi).
The motorcycle is expected to be available to the customers in both the kick start and electric start variants where the price tags for the two will vary accordingly. Since the motorcycle features the similar engine as that of the BS4 Classic 350 in its last-gen avatar, the brand is expected to offer the updated motorcycle with the similar BS6-compliant engine borrowed from the recently launched BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 that is now capable of churning out a maximum power of 19.1HP @ 5250 rpm and a peak torque of 28Nm @ 4000 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The BS6 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is expected to be available to the customers in multiple new colour variants though there has been no official confirmation received on the same. Apart from the addition of a BS6-compliant engine, the updated motorcycle is expected to feature similar designing traits as well as mechanical bits.
The updated cruiser will feature the similar 280mm disc brake at the front and a 153mm drum brake at the rear mated to a single-channel ABS as standard. The brand has further finalised on discontinuing its 500cc motorcycle range before the implementation of the new emission norms in the country, though the existing customers will be able to buy the spare parts whenever necessary since their production will not be halted.
