Rumour: Affordable Royal Enfield Bullet 350 variant on cards

According to a media report, Royal Enfield might launch an affordable variant of the Bullet 350. It is rumoured to be launched in a few months time. 

The new variant is likely to be based on the Bullet 350 and could use the existing platform. The bike could get a different fuel tank badge, black finish for the engine and might lose all the chrome bits that are offered on regular Bullet 350. The new variant could also get the bright colour options that debuted on the Thunderbird X. Besides, it could get spoked wheels with tubed tyres as well as both kick and electric start options.

Mechanically, the bike is expected to be identical to the Bullet 350 and could use the same 350cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine. Reports suggest that a 500cc version might also be on offer.

It is also rumoured that Royal Enfield is considering a 250cc bike for the Indian market. However, this project is reportedly in its early stages.
