Back in August 2019, Royal Enfield launched its Bullet 350 & 350 ES at Rs 1.12 lakh and Rs 1.27 lakh respectively. The former here was the most affordable offering from the brand at the time of the launch. And now both the models have received a price hike.
So the Bullet 350 now retails at Rs 1,14,754 whereas the Bullet ES will set you back by Rs 1,30,365. Although these are marginal hikes, considering the fact that these bikes are supposed to be Royal Enfield’s most affordable offerings, even such a marginal hike would put second thoughts in the customers’ minds.
|Model Name||Old Price||New Price||Price Hike|
|Bullet 350 (KS)||Rs 1,12,000||Rs 1,14,754||Rs 2,754|
|Bullet 350 ES||Rs 1,26,692||Rs 1,30,365||Rs 3,673|
Royal Enfield hasn’t released any information as to why it has hiked the price. We are hoping to have an official statement regarding the same sometime soon. Keep in mind that the aforementioned prices are of the single-channel ABS models.
Royal Enfield is also upgrading its product line-up to make it BS 6 compliant. We have spotted various test mules of different RE bikes in the past. It is being speculated that first Royal Enfield will launch the BS 6 Classic and Thunderbird and the BS 6 Bullet series would be introduced later.
Just FYI, the Bullet is RE’s oldest running model in India and is still on sale. Isn’t that brilliant? Powering this motorcycle is a 346cc, single-cylinder engine that puts out 19.8 bhp and 28 Nm of torque.
