What happens when you put a Royal Enfield Bullet Standard 350 Vs Electra 350 in a highway race? A surprising result awaits.
A new video of Bullet Standard 350 racing with the Bullet Electra 350 has emerged. In terms of difference, the Bullet Standard 350 and Electra 350 models come with 5 Ah and 8 Ah batteries, respectively. While the Standard 350 has a drum brake at the front, the Electra 350 comes equipped with 280 mm dual-piston brakes. Also, the Electra model is heavier by 7 kg than the Standard 350 model. There are several other cosmetic differences like the rear mudguard, fork covers, headlamps, etc. Let us see how they perform in a straight-up highway race.
In the first drag race on the highway, the Bullet Standard 350 was quick from the launch itself. It seems to have a heavy crank. In a second test, the petrol was turned off on both bikes, since the corporate size is the same. At the same speed, the Electra went farther. During the second drag race, the standard is way faster. However, the Electra is quick in a short span. In the 3rd gear, the Electra went faster. However, only till the standard reaches 100kmph. While both bikes feature similar engines, the output is very different. On the long run, the standard beats the Electra 350 model.
The new Bullet bikes use a refreshed BS6 compliant 350cc engine with fuel injection as standard. The single-cylinder engine offers 20 PS and 28 Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. For suspension, Bullet has added telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the back. Both the Electra and Standard 350 models feature 19-inch front and rear wheels. The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Standard price starts from Rs 1,45,230 in India. On the other hand, the Royal Enfield Bullet Electra 350 price starts at Rs 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom).
