Royal Enfield Bullet 350 with rear disc brake launched in India

Indian motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield has launched the new Bullet 350 with rear disc brake in India. The new Royal Enfield Bullet 350 with dual disc brakes is priced at Rs 1.28 lakhs ex-showroom (Mumbai). The Bullet 350 with the rear disc brake was spotted at a Nasik dealership by Abhinash Panigrahi who posted the video seen below on his Youtube page.

The new Royal Enfield Bullet 350 with dual discs does not seem to have any new features added to the bike except for the new rear disc brake and the rectangular swingarm. The swingarm design of the new bike looks to be the same one found on the Bullet 350 which is exported to international markets. However, what seems to be odd is the absence of dual-channel ABS on the new bike, which is an update that Royal Enfield has added to many other motorcycles in its range.

The engine on the Bullet 350 remains unchanged and still remains paired to the 5-speed gearbox found on the other 350 and 500 Enfield models. The Bullet 350 draws power from a 346 cc air-cooled single cylinder engine that produces 19,8 Bhp at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.

Suspension duties except for the addition of the new swingarm are carried out by the same set of telescopic forks up front and gas charged twin shock absorbers at the rear. The wheels on the Bullet 350 too remain the same with 19-inch spoked units on both ends shod with tubed tyres from Ceat. Stopping power to the new Bullet 350 is provided by a 280 mm disc up front and the new disc at the rear which measures in at 240 mm.

Cosmetically too the new Royal Enfield Bullet 350 remains unchanged with chrome fenders and a single piece seat along with gold pinstriping on the fuel tank and side panels. The Standard version of the Bullet 350 is still only offered in a black paint scheme, while the Electric Start variant gets two extra colour options – Silver and Red.

Royal Enfield looks set to launch its 650 twins – the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 in India on the 14th of August and will reveal a new Bobber motorcycle concept with an 830 cc twin-cylinder engine later today at EICMA 2018 in Milan, Italy, a year after revealing the 650 twins at the same show last year.
