2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 will plenty in common with the latest Classic 350 and it will be powered by a 349 cc single-cylinder air- and oil-cooled SOHC FI engine
Royal Enfield is looking to introduce a host of new motorcycles across different segments. The Chennai-based manufacturer is expected to launch the new generation Bullet 350 within the next two months and it will more likely be followed by the Himalayan 450. The latest lineup of 350 cc models has been garnering good sales numbers for the brand.
The Royal Enfield Hunter 350, Classic 350 and Meteor 350 have been well received by customers and the range will be strengthened with the arrival of the all-new Bullet 350. Compared to the outgoing model, the new-gen Bullet will be more premium and it will cost more as it will have plenty in common with the Classic 350.
The 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 will sit on a double cradle frame as the latest Classic and will be equipped with a 349 cc single-cylinder air- and oil-cooled SOHC FI engine producing a maximum power output of 20.2 bhp and 27 Nm of peak torque. It will be mated to a five-speed transmission. The retro roadster will be offered in multiple variants.
It will more likely get front and rear disc brakes assisted by a single-channel ABS system and a dual-channel ABS version could be available higher up the range. The new-gen Bullet 350 will boast a vintage look with a round-shaped halogen headlamp unit, circular halogen tail lamp and turn signals. We do expect new colours to be made available as well.
It will be suspended on telescopic front forks and twin-sided rear shock absorbers while the wire-spoked wheels with tubed tyres will further complement its retro stance. It will also come with a relaxed handlebar setup and neutral footpeg positioning to aid touring based consumers. As ever, Royal Enfield will see a number of optional accessories with the upcoming motorcycle.
It will not get a kicker and the exhaust note will be different too. The new-gen Bullet will be followed by the Himalayan 450 adventure tourer using a new 450 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine developing around 40 bhp. It will be paired with a six-speed transmission.
