Upgrades and Changes in the 2023 Royal Enfield Bullet 350

Royal Enfield is now offering the Bullet 350 in five different colors, depending on the version you choose. The basic Military version comes in Military Red and Military Black. The Standard version is available in Standard Black and Standard Maroon. Lastly, the Black Gold version lives up to its name with a blacked-out look and golden pinstripes.

One big change is that they are getting rid of the kick-start option. Currently, you can buy a cheaper Bullet with just a kick-start or a more expensive one with an electric starter. But with this update, the kick-start-only option won’t be available anymore.

The most significant change in the new Bullet is the brand-new 349cc J-platform engine. This engine is already used in other Royal Enfield models like the Classic 350, Hunter 350, and Meteor 350, and it’s expected to produce 20.2 horsepower and 27 Newton-meters of torque.

But it’s not just about the numbers; this new engine is supposed to be much smoother. It should reduce the annoying vibrations that high RPMs used to cause, a problem that has bothered Bullet riders for a long time. This new engine marks the end of an era for the old 346cc UCE engine that has been in use since 2010. That engine helped Royal Enfield recover from its past troubles.

The new Bullet will share its frame with the Classic 350, including its double downtube frame, telescopic fork, and twin shock absorbers for suspension. The wheels and tires will likely be the same as the Classic model, with a 100/90-19 tire in the front and a 120/80-18 tire in the rear. This should improve handling and provide a more balanced and comfortable ride.

In terms of looks, the new Bullet 350 will keep the old-school design of the previous model but with some updates similar to the new Classic 350. The main differences are a single-piece seat, no cover over the headlight, and a new taillamp design.
