    It's a great bike which you can use for long rides. I have taken it to ladhak thrice and it was a great experience. It has a very good performance and is even affordable. You don't ever get service problems like you get for harley davidson bikes as royal enfield service centers are almost in every city.

    I like it's look and texture.It is for royal style.Great look.Its fuel tank looks excellent and the sound of the royal enfield bullet 350 is the ‘bullet’ at its purest, with the modern unit construction engine. The bullet 350 features the unmistakable gold pinstripes, and skips some modern features such an electric start and disc brake. The royal enfield bullet 350 is powered by a 346cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that makes 19.8bhp and 28nm of peak torque, paired to a 5-speed gearbox. Is excellent.

    Buying experience - i bought the bike in a haste, wanted to get the bike as soon as possible and made a cash down for it, and i wanted a marsh grey bike only. Kings auto, located at baner, pune made an excellent effort in completing the buying process in time with pdi and the documentation done. The brakes were a little loose when i bought it but was set according to my requirements by a local enfield mechanic. Riding experience - my stint with re goes back to decades and i have never really had any other bike. I was used to the right right side gear configuration and when i bought this it took me about a week to get used to the new gear orientation. Re according to me has served me a brilliantly. I understand there are bikes that are supposedly better performers and deliver more power with a smaller engine capacity and lower bhp, yet an enfield is an enfield. Most of the criticisms hurled at this bike are perhaps a manifestation of what the competition couldn't achieve, what re did. Its low bhp high torque single cylinder design architecture delivers the much-needed power, though the power delivery is very clustered. It's not very linear. But when it comes to carrying the load on rough rough roads, there is no match for an enfield. Its extremely dependable and on long runs has never let me down (under any circumstances, water, slush, snow or rain). It's very easy to maintain and at times i feel its got a mind of its own. Re performs the best under the most testing situations. You can just go on on this bike regardless of the terrain and weather conditions. An enfield stops only when the rider does. Details about looks, performance etc - looks wise there no other bike at this price point that offers you what an enfield does. The modern classic design is eye-catching and has a very male, rustic aura about itself. A more modern and handsome cousin is the thunderbird. Servicing and maintenance - re is very easy to maintain and highly customizable. You can maintain and customise the bike yourself without going to the mechanic at every drop of a hat. And the ones i have owned have been the carburetted ones that simplify things further for me. Pros and cons - in conclusion, let us evaluate the bike Pros - dependable, powerful, classic, the thump, customisable, easy to maintain Cons - high on fuel consumption, oil intake is high, some people may find it too heavy.
