One of the most famous automobile companies Royal Enfield which is known to be giving stylish exteriors and worthwhile interiors, have launched its all new ‘Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and 350 Es’ with anti-locking brake system (ABS) in India priced at Rs. 1.21 lakh and Rs. 1.35 lakh respectively.
The Bullet 350 gets a 280 mm disc up front with a 2-piston calliper while the rear wheel gets a 153 mm single lead internal expanding drum brake. Spyshots show the rear wheel featuring an ABS ring but it could be a speed sensor which will send inputs to the front wheel ABS and keep the rear-wheel from lifting off. Even though the Bullet 350 ES gets disc brakes up front and at the rear, it still gets single-channel ABS. The entire Royal Enfield motorcycle line-up is now equipped with ABS.
The Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and the Bullet 350 ES get the same engine which is a 346 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled motor that pumps out 19.8 bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The Bullet 350 is now ₹ 3,500 more expensive than the non-ABS model and the Bullet 350 ES is about ₹ 1,400 more expensive than the non ABS model. The minimal hike in prices is because the ABS is single-channel. Had it been a dual-channel ABS, the price hike would have been steeper, about ₹ 11,000 or so.
