- Next-gen Royal Enfield Bullet 350 spied
- Gets a few visual changes
- To be based on RE’s new J platform
The next-generation version of Royal Enfield’s oldest-running Bullet 350 was recently spied testing again, after it was spotted in July this year. The recent spy shot, similar to the previous one, reveals a few details about the motorcycle.
Royal Enfield has kept the overall design silhouette of the motorcycle quite close to the existing model. However, there are a few minor yet evident changes. The seat and grab rail design is slightly different and look more premium while the angular tail lamp has been replaced by a circular unit. Moreover, the round headlamp of the new model looks flatter, as opposed to the bulging lens of the ongoing iteration. Plus, RE might also roll out fresher colour options for the Bullet 350.
The hardware package, meanwhile, should be majorly updated, similar to the new Classic 350. The sighted Bullet is certainly based on RE’s new J platform which comprises a new dual-cradle chassis and a 349cc, air/oil-cooled engine that churns out 20.2bhp and 27Nm in the Classic and the Meteor 350. The wheels, suspension, and braking setup will also be different than the currently sold trim to deliver a better riding experience.
At present, the prices of the existing Royal Enfield Bullet 350 start from Rs 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom) and the next-generation trim will probably be slightly more expensive. The official launch of the bike is likely to take place early next year.
