Royal Enfield Bullet 350 by Abhilash Bharadwaj

Hi everyone, I am Bharadwaj; Just now completed my course and I would wish you to in my journey of my passion about and specially Royal Enfield. I had a review about my first FZ16 in the same site for the review and was also selected as the best by the judges.

In this I would like to write a rather than a review my First Love, a legendary which is ruling the streets for many decades – The Royal – Bullet 350. Passion Bullet and how I became a owner of a The urge to ride this was over many years before I knew it was called a

As I was happy riding the Japanese for over 7 years, I got an opportunity to this monster in Goa when I was on a trip. Two of my friends along me hired Royal Enfield for a day and this was probably the point I in love completely with machine. That was the day I decided further if I ride a bike gonna be a Royal Enfield.

with this, a video “Riding Solo to the top of the world” by A Jani was a great inspiration for me to own a The bike which I hired was a model … 350 which had a foot gear shift and it me time to get adjusted to this I was amazed with the performance of the and its capacity to pull up to 50kmph in 2nd

Once I came back I started to speak fulltime the bike its performance and comfort and my were fed up of listening to the same again and again. Finally convincing them for over a they agreed to get me a Bullet. Now it was my to decide which bull to

I decided to go for a 350cc itself as I plans to do lot of touring and it needs to be on fuel.

My Choices Were


Bullet … 350


As this plan of another bike was just for the passion and not for any purpose, I did not have any options than Royal and I have observed that who decides to go for Royal Enfield out of will not even compare specs of other bikes or do on fuel economy or even the cost. In this regard Enfield is a competitor for itself and others are in its league.

I finally to go for a Royal Enfield Bullet 350 of two reasons

My dad insisted me on that of the Royal Enfield metal on the tank.

Waiting period of was over 10 months and I could not

As all 350cc Royal Enfield’s run on the engine, I did not have much to about. Finally my dad booked for a 350 on 9th of November 2010 in Shimoga in his showroom as he promised to get the bike 5 months. After a painful period of 4 months (thank god I got the 1 month early) I got my bike on 7th 2011.

I got it packed and loaded on to a train and got it to Bangalore.

I named him “Hermes” means Greek god for travelling. here on I kick-started the most journey of my life with my and trusted companion a 350cc motorcycle. This bike me realize that one could fall in love with a and have a bonding.

Let me not bore you with my story so let me speak the bike, its performance, positives and in brief.

Review of the Royal Bullet 350 UCE

What one would

Classic and elegant styling




for touring

Fuel efficiency

suitable for Trails

What one may

No disk brakes or self in …

Handling is difficult for new

History of high maintenance of Royal Enfield

Too long radius



not a bike designed or upgraded with the changes in the market or the taste. It has the same frame and finishing as it was a few decades ago but still the presence in market because of its styling which takes us to 1970’s. The badge on the tank great.


“God did not create to make paper clips and to make bikes.!”. It should be the way round. This logic is by Royal Enfield, it has a sturdy in which plastic is used apart from mirrors and

One would feel safe on a Royal Enfield.


probably has the best riding which is balanced between riding for long distances and or off-road. This makes the prefer a Royal Enfield to in the highest motor able at very tough situations in Leh and cross other passes. going gets tough the gets going”.


is no need for me to explain about the of the bike. The new UCE provides a power of and a torque of 28Nm. The new engine has acceleration and provides a stable at 60 miles an hour.

One should it’s neither a commuter nor a bike and know the behavior of the and how it needs to be handled. It is the only which demands Respect from fuel.

The of going for a Royal Enfield is there is no fun riding a Bullet in traffic like a commuter. One has to on this bike to explore its and the highest level of comfort it provides for the rider and also

It can carry up to 280kgs of load the rider and pillion and with adjustments can carry luggage for a month of riding including and other equipments.


The this machine was built was for by Enfield during the world Till date, Royal is supplying this machine for Army and other defense So I need not tell how much bike is suitable for trails and its frame with a sturdy gives confidence off roads.

To bikers other than Enfield: “You can go faster but I can go

Fuel efficiency

With the new Royal Enfield claims a efficiency of 52kmpl under conditions (not standard conditions). But in city riding ignition on in traffic lights and my style, my bike gives a efficiency of little above (of which I am very happy For a fair review I would like to write about of Royal Enfield.


As Enfield Bullet 350 does not either disk brakes or a starter as a option, people other bikes may feel uncomfortable as they have for lot of comfort on their plastic It is huge bike which is 7ft and a wheel of size 19” and a weight of 180kg with fuel and oil handling for new bikers a difficult and one may feel it not practical to ride a in city traffic.

Maintenance of RE bikes as observed has high and one need to care the bike like a kid and cannot ride it and forget it. Cost of has a great issue with Enfield but now they claim new engines are better in terms of UCE bikes lacks in Thump by the old cast iron engines.

There is no need to advice any about his riding style or as all the Bulleteers would be matured in their riding style other bikers with enthusiasm. “Boys ride men ride Bullet”.

For people who are to own a Bullet; go for a Royal Enfield if you have passion for a Royal otherwise it may not be a pleasant ownership All the owners would have lot of problems but their passion is tons greater than have made them their bike even for


Other bikers may Bullet is a piece of crap in a design but only Bulleteers or having passion towards a will know how one truly when he is on a Bullet and on the road the crowds behind. In this I have traveled very of about 1700km in these 3

I am a part of Royal Indians Owners Club and have few short rides. But I can assure it’s a great machine and one truly enjoy every spent with this Hoping to do lot of touring and trails on bike, I would like to end review by sharing a quote. a biker knows why a dog sticks his out of a car window”.

Before finishing off this I would like to thank all the involved in production, design and of this Legend, all the workers in plant for giving us a great “Royal Enfield”. I am proud of an owner of the oldest existing brand in the world.

“Biking is not all speed; it’s about Respect, Love. And sense of
