RE Bullet tRials-1

Both the Royal Enfield Trials 350 and the Trials 500 will be available at all the 117 dealerships across India from tomorrow

After a lot of teasing Royal Enfield has finally launched the Trials 350 and the Trials 500 in India priced at Rs. Rs 1.62 lakh (ex-showroom) and Rs 2.07 lakh (ex-showroom) respectively. Both the motorcycles are underpinned by the Bullet platform which is the oldest motorcycle in the Royal Enfield lineup. According to RE, both the Trials variants take their design inspiration from the scrambler motorcycles of the early 50s and 60s era.

Although the motorcycles are underpinned by the Bullet platform, they look quite different. The Trials 350 and 500 feature new fork gaiters up front to protect the suspension setup. They even get a new handlebar brace and an additional protective grille for the front headlamp finished in black.

The biggest change that you will notice in the motorcycles comes in the form of a standard luggage rack instead of the pillion seat. Furthermore, the conventional exhaust unit has also been replaced with a new upswept exhaust. Both the 350 and 500 Trials have been fitted with a 19-inch front and 18 inch rear wheels wrapped with dual purpose tyres.

The other visual difference that you will also notice in the Trials variants is the raised tail section and a slightly shorter front and rear chrome fenders. In order to give both the motorcycles distinct identity, the 350 Trials 350 get a red coloured chassis while the Trials 500 features a green coloured chassis.

The Trials 500 variant, on the other hand, also features a chrome treatment as well. Lastly, both the motorcycles also get a 3D ‘Royal Enfield’ logo positioned on the fuel tank. Coming to the powertrain, the Trials 350 is powered by the same 346 cc, single cylinder, air-cooled unit that produces about 19.8 bhp of peak power and 28 Nm of peak torque.

The Trials 350 and 500 use the conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. Both the motorcycles rely on a 280 mm disc up front and a 240 mm disc at the rear. A dual channel ABS comes as standard for the safety of the rider.
