Royal Enfield has now launched the most affordable motorcycle in its lineup, the Bullet 350X. It is priced starting from Rs 1.12 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
Royal Enfield Bullet 350X has been launched in India as the manufacturer’s most affordable motorcycle in India, right now. It is available in two variants, one being a Kick Start (KS) version and the other being Electric Start (ES).
The Bullet 350X KS variant has a price tag of Rs 1.12 Lakhs and the ES goes for Rs 1.26 Lakhs (ex-showroom). Both the new variants are priced around Rs 9,000 cheaper than the regular Bullet variants, which go for Rs 1.21 Lakhs and Rs 1.36 Lakhs.
The main difference between the Royal Enfield Bullet 350X and the regular Bullet is that the former one misses out on a lot of chrome detailing. Instead, it uses blacked-out paint job over most of the parts.
The Bullet 350X KS comes in three colour options – Silver, Sapphire Blue and Onyx Black. The ES variant will be available in Jet Black, Regal Red and Royal Blue options. The colour options are different than the ones found on regular Bullet variants.
The bikes get a complete blacked-out finish with a silver finish on the crankcases. On the fuel tank, you get a graphic of the Royal Enfield instead of the hard 3D Emblem that comes on the regular one. The ES variant, however, gets the proper emblem.
Powering both the variants is the same 346cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine with TwinSpark ignition. The engine produces 19.8 BHP and 28 Nm of peak torque, with the engine riding on a 5-speed gearbox.
Rest of the components are the same as the regular Bullet. You get the retro-styled round headlamp, simple fuel tank, a single seat and the chrome-plated exhaust muffler.
With this price of Bullet 350X, Royal Enfield can expect a slight improvement in its monthly sales which has been tanking for a long time now. The Classic 350 which was amongst the top 10 selling motorcycles in India is no longer on the list.
