ROYAL ENFIELD STANDARD 350 REVIEW

ROYAL ENFIELD  STANDARD 350 REVIEW – The Royal Enfield Bullet Standard 350 is now available in two different options, one with original old school Royal Enfield badging without a disc brake and electric start. And one with new colour schemes and the electric start and the disc brake, which was branded as the Electra earlier. Over the years, the Bullet has evolved and still stayed true to its essence of being an old-school cruiser.

The Bullet 350 features retro dials with an analogue speedometer, ammeter, and a key slot on the console. It is powered by an air-cooled 346cc single-cylinder four stroke engine churning out 19.8bhp and 28Nm of torque. It is mated to a five-speed gearbox with the gear-lever on the left side of the motorcycle. It can hit a claimed top speed of 95kmph.

The Bullet 350 is 2,140mmlong, 810mm wide, 1120mm tall with a wheelbase of 1,370mm and it weighs 180kg.

The base model of the Bullet 350 Twinspark is only available in one colour – black – and loses out on essentials like self-start and disc brakes but it is the cheapest Bullet money can buy. The more expensive version can be had in four colours – black, silver, maroon and blue.

Engine

Bullet STD-350 comes with air-cooled, 4-stroke engine with a displacement of 346 cc. The engine has a support for single cylinder. Bullet 350 develops 18 bhp of peak power at 5000 rpm and generates a torque of 32 Nm at 3000 rpm. It has 4-speed right foot gear shift type transmission.

Design And Comfort
In terms of looks, Bullet Standard -350 retains the pristine old look. The length and width of STD 350 are 2120mm, 750mm respectively. It has a proportionate performance-weight ratio. It has ground clearance of 140mm. The front suspensions in Bullet 350 include telescopic hydraulic damping155mm travel suspensions and the rear suspension includes 130 mm travel gas filled shock absorbers with swing arm. Bullet 350 has drum brake in the front and same type in the rear. The design and look of the bike renders a big ego satisfaction and commands respect in society. Bullet STD offers great comfort and safety features, apart from the macho looks it possesses, making it one of the best bikes in its class and segment.

Ride And Handling
The ride, stability, pick up, handling are all perfect in Bullet 350 with some 50 year old basic design. It is considered as one of the safest powerful bikes in India and it has solid weight, large wheelbase and big tyre. To ride this bike will give a lasting experience and will long to own for oneself. This is the bike that suits for the open road where we can shoot out with the unique thudding sounds. However this bike is hard to handle in the heavy traffic. It gives about 35 kmpl and comes in affordable price. Although many people complain bullet is a pain to start, unreliable, heavy and tiresome, everything depends on the service and treatment. If we give for servicing regularly it would perform as any other bike with more pleasure and delight. However Bullet 350 is apparently having the problem with the emission norm and hence Royal Enfield is likely to discontinue this bike or they may come up with the better UCE-350 engine.
