- Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Trials taken off the shelves
- Failed to get buyers interest
- Was powered by a 348cc, single-cylinder motor
The manufacturer has removed the Bullet Trials from its official website. Moreover, a few dealerships across the country have confirmed that the model will no longer be available for sale. While Royal Enfield was unavailable for comment, the discontinuation of the Bullet Trials 350 could be due to its low sales.
As we had reported a while ago, the Bullet Trials failed to rake in numbers for Royal Enfield even after being on sale for more than nine months. This can be attributed to the fact that the Trials 350, with its scrambler-styling, flashy paint and most importantly, single-piece seat catered to a different audience as compared to the Bullet 350; the motorcycle it is based on.
Royal Enfield updated the Bullet 350 to BS6 norms but kept the Bullet Trials 350 in the shadows, further adding fuel to the fire. The Trials were also available in a 500cc variant but was removed along with the entire Royal Enfield 500cc range, which fell victim to low sales.
On the brighter side, the manufacturer has cleared its BS4 inventory across the country and will begin sales of its BS6 line-up soon. While the Classic and Bullet models have already been updated, we can expect the BS6 Thunderbird 350 and Thunderbird 350X to be launched soon.
