New-gen Royal Enfield Bullet 350 uses a 349 cc single-cylinder air- and oil-cooled SOHC engine developing 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm
Royal Enfield has today announced the launch of the long-awaited new generation Bullet 350 in the domestic market. It carries a starting price of Rs. 1,73,562 for the Military Red and Military Black colours while the Standard Maroon and Standard Black cost Rs. 1,97,436 each. The range-topping Black Gold shade is priced at Rs. 2,15,801 (all prices, ex-showroom).
The Royal Enfield Bullet has a rich history of success for the Chennai-based manufacturer, and it continues to evolve with the introduction of a new entry-level roadster. This new model will be the fourth addition to the modern 350 cc lineup, which includes the Classic 350, Meteor 350, and Hunter 350 – all built on the J-series engine platform.
The 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 derives power from the familiar 349 cc single-cylinder air- and oil-cooled SOHC engine, producing a maximum power of 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. This powerplant is paired with a five-speed transmission. The engine is described as a distinctive long-stroke motor.

Judging by its refined characteristics and smooth power delivery in the Classic and Meteor, it’s anticipated that the all-new Bullet 350 will share these traits. The all-new RE Bullet 350 features conventional telescopic front forks and gas-charged twin-sided rear shock absorbers for its suspension duties.

Additional highlights include a redesigned headlamp with new pilot lamps, a semi-digital instrument console featuring an LCD info panel, a new halogen tail lamp with integrated reflectors, and design cues inspired by the vintage Bullets. It adorns prominent chrome accents, a single-piece tubular grab rail, hand-painted signature pinstripes and the iconic winged badge evoking nostalgia. The new RE Bullet 350 comes with an 805 mm long seat and a USB charging port this time around.
The redesigned handlebar is said to offer improved ergonomics, along with new switch cubes, an info switch, and an oval master cylinder. Built on a new twin-cradle frame, the Bullet 350 is available in three variants: Military (Red and Black), Standard (Black and Maroon), and Black Gold.
