It shares the J-series platform with other Royal Enfield 350cc models like the Classic Reborn, Meteor, and Hunter. In the Indian market, the Bullet 350 will face competition from motorcycles like the Honda CB350 and Jawa 42.

During an event in Chennai, the 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 was launched with a starting price of Rs. 1.73 lakh, and it goes up to Rs. 2.15 lakh for the top variant. These prices are ex-showroom rates. Bookings for this model have already begun at Royal Enfield dealerships across India and through their official website. Customers can expect bike deliveries to commence from September 3. The new Bullet 350 is available in three different variants to cater to various preferences and needs.
New Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Design
The new-generation Bullet 350 maintains its classic appearance with new halogen headlights and taillights, staying true to its iconic design. However, it has undergone several notable changes, including updates to the frame, engine, single-piece seat design, a rectangular side box, and new handlebars. The rear fender has been slightly shortened, while the front fender has been extended. The Bullet now sports a matte and glass black fuel tank, along with new copper and gold-colored 3D badges, a crown insignia, and copper pinstriping. A significant update is the inclusion of the Peashooter exhaust muffler, adding to its classic charm.
New Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Performance
The new-generation Bullet 350 is equipped with the J-series 349cc single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine, which is the same engine used in Royal Enfield’s Classic 350 and Hunter 350 models. This engine delivers a maximum power output of 20.17 horsepower and a peak torque of 27 Nm. It is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox for smooth transmission of power.
Royal Enfield Bullet 350: Comfort Features and Braking
To provide a comfortable ride, the new-generation Bullet 350 is equipped with twin downtube frame telescopic forks at both the front and rear. The bike comes with 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wire-spoke wheels fitted with tube tires that are thicker than the older ones.
In terms of braking, the mid and top variants of the Bullet feature a 300mm front disc brake and a 270mm rear disc brake, both equipped with dual-channel ABS for enhanced safety. The base variant, on the other hand, has a drum brake at the rear with single-channel ABS.
Regarding its features, the new-generation Bullet comes with a modern digital instrument cluster that includes a USB charging port. It combines an analog speedometer, fuel gauge, and service reminder for convenience. As with other Royal Enfield models, there will be a range of accessories and customization options available for the new Bullet.
