Royal Enfield 350 Electra With Rear Disc Brake — Still Misses Out On ABS

Royal Enfield also introduced its Bullet 350 (standard) with the rear disc brake, a couple of months back. Both variants of the Bullet 350 (ES and Standard) now come with a small price hike. The 350 Bullet ES and the 350 Bullet (Standard) are now priced at Rs 1.32 Lakh and 1.28 Lakh, respectively. Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi).

Apart from the addition of the rear disc brake, the Electra 350 does not feature any other changes, either mechanical or cosmetic. Both the Bullet 350 and the 350 Electra are technically the same and come with only minor changes. One of the major changes is the addition of an electric start button on the ES model.
