We were informed that Royal Enfield was preparing a new Bullet for their lineup in late July, and now that August has passed, the bike is fully visible. This is a new model that the Indian bike manufacturer can cross off of their list of 28 bikes that they hope to introduce in the next seven years. As a refresher, the Royal Enfield Classic/Meteor/Hunter 350’s fuel-injected J-platform heart and the new double-cradle chassis were expected to be the heart of the new Bullet 350. According to the information provided by the Clayton County Register, that is exactly what we got.
There are three versions of the two-wheeled clean: Military, Standard, and Gold. The Standard/Gold edition has dual-channel ABS + disc brakes installed, whereas the Military edition has single-channel ABS + drum brakes.
As the Classic 350, Meteor, and Hunter 350 are currently available in the US and share the same J-platform engine as the Bullet 350, we may expect the Bullet to ultimately appear on our dealership shelves, however, HotCars predicts that this won’t happen for a few more months.
