Indian motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield is all set to update its popular Bullet 350 motorcycle with dual-channel ABS. A new report from Indian Autos Blog claims that the new ABS equipped Bullet 350 from Royal Enfield is expected to be launched in the coming weeks.
The report by Indian Autos Blog states that addition of dual-channel ABS is expected to raise prices of the Bullet 350 by around Rs 14,000. The base model of the Bullet 350 is currently priced at Rs 1.16 lakh and sports drum brakes. The top-spec variant of the bike, the Bullet 350 ES Dual Disc retails at a Rs 1.32 lakhs.
The Bullet 350 will become the latest motorcycle in the Royal Enfield Range to get dual-channel ABS ahead of new safety norms that go into effect on April 1, 2019. Royal Enfield is expected to discontinue the non-ABS variants of the Bullet 350 as it has done in the case of the other bikes in its range when they received the new safety feature.
The new Bullet 350 is not expected to feature any more feature upgrades when it is launched in the coming weeks except for the addition of the new dual-channel ABS setup that is now standard on most bikes in the Royal Enfield range.
This will mean that the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 will continue to draw power from the same 346cc single-cylinder engine that powers the current bike. The Royal Enfield Bullet 350's air-cooled single cylinder engine produces19.8bhp @ 5,250rpm and 28Nm of peak torque @ 4,000rpm. The engine which uses a 29mm constant vacuum carburettor is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox that sends power to the rear wheel.
The suspension setup will remain the same as well with the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 ABS keeping the 35mm telescopic forks up front along with the twin gas charged shocks at the rear.
DriveSpark's Thoughts on the upcoming launch of the Bullet 350 ABS
The addition of dual-channel ABS will be a welcome addition to the iconic Bullet 350, which is perhaps the best-known motorcycle in the Royal Enfield 350. Not only will it make the Bullet 350 comply with new safety rules but the new dual-channel ABS system should make riding a thumper a whole lot more safer as well.
