Ahead of the launch tomorrow, the bookings for Royal Enfield Bullet Trials 350 and 500 have commenced at some dealerships.
Royal Enfield Bullet Trials 350 and 500 is scheduled to be launched tomorrow in Pune. Ahead of the launch, some dealerships have started the booking process and are accepting booking amounts too.
Trials Edition is based on the Bullet series, with a couple of visual customizations. It is inspired by the legendary Royal Enfield bikes who were famous for off-roading in the 1950s and 60s.
The engine specifications and the suspension will be the same as available on Bullet series. Basically, the Bullet Trials 350 and 500 will be off-roading versions of the Bullet counterparts.
It all started when a couple of months back, some photos of an unusual looking Royal Enfield were leaked. While a couple of media publications suggested that it might be known as Classic 350 Scrambler.
The Bullet Trials 350 was sold in the global markets in the early 2000s, alongside the Bullet. We expect it to be offered as a full-time variant like the Classic Signals 350 and not like the Pegasus variants.
The engine specifications will remain the same as it is. The 350cc air-cooled engine produces 19.8 BHP and 28 Nm of peak torque. The 500cc air-cooled motor delivers 27.5 BHP and 41.3 Nm of peak torque, both the engines mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The Bullet Trials 350 and 500 sport a single seat with luggage rack at the back, rubber gaiters, an upswept exhaust, short fenders at both the ends and dual-purpose 18-inch tires.
Based on the spy shots, we expect that the Trials 350 will be available in Chrome and Red colour option, with the frame, subframe, main stand and swingarm coloured red. The Trials 500 will be available in Olive Green and Chrome option.
We expect the Trials 350 to demand nearly Rs 12,000 premium over the regular Bullet 350 for the off-roading kit. The same pricing applies for the Trials 500.
Royal Enfield Bullet 350 is currently priced at Rs 1.33 Lakhs but is yet to receive ABS. The Bullet 500 goes for Rs 1.87 Lakhs (prices ex-showroom), which is already offered with a dual-channel ABS setup.
