Upcoming Royal Enfield 350 Expected Launch Date

The Bullet 350 now costs Rs 1.77 lakh (on-road, Delhi), but the next model may cost more. The Bullet 350 Next Gen should cost Rs 1.80 lakh (ex-showroom).
The biggest change on the new Bullet 350 is the engine. It will ditch the old 346cc UCE motor and adopt the new J-series 349cc single-cylinder engine that powers the Classic 350, Meteor 350, and Hunter 350. A five-speed gearbox drives the new engine’s 20.2 horsepower and 27 Nm. The new engine will also bring a quantum leap in terms of refinement and eliminate the high-RPM vibrations that plague the current bike. However, the new engine will also mean the elimination of the kickstarter, which is currently offered on some variants of the Bullet.

The ground clearance of the new Bullet 350 is expected to be around 135 mm, which is adequate for most Indian road conditions. The seat height is likely to be around 800 mm, which should suit most riders.
Upcoming Royal Enfield 350 Look and Features
The Bullet 350 will include a spherical halogen headlamp, teardrop-shaped fuel tank, lengthy front and rear fenders, and a single-piece seat. It will also feature chrome accents on the exhaust, mirrors, and engine casing. The bike will be black, green, red, blue, and silver.
The features of the new Bullet 350 will see a step-up from the current model. It will get a semi-digital instrument console with a fuel level readout and a Tripper navigation pod as an optional extra. The Tripper pod is a small display that shows turn-by-turn navigation directions using Bluetooth connectivity with a smartphone app. The bike will also get ABS as standard, but only with a single-channel setup as the rear brake will be a drum unit on all variants.
The new Bullet 350 Next Gen will be a modern take on a classic motorcycle that has been around for decades. It will offer improved performance, refinement, and features while retaining its iconic charm and appeal.This cruiser mixes legacy and technology.
