Royal Enfield has launched the Bullet Trials 350 and Trials 500 in India, with prices starting at INR 1.62 lakh and INR 2.07 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively. The Bullet Trials variant, as the name suggests, is a scrambler version based on the standard Bullet from the Eicher owned brand.
Inspired from Royal Enfield’s Trials bikes from the past, the new Bullet Trials 350 and Trials 500 feature shorter mudguards, single-seat setup, taller handle-bar with the cross brace and an upswept exhaust. Also on offer are 19-inch tyres and 18-inch tyres at the front and rear respectively, all wrapped in Ceat off-road tyres. Dual channel ABS is available on both the models as a standard feature.
The company also offers a few accessories on the models such as a headlight grille, engine guard, crossbar padding and sump guard. The factor that distinguishes the Bullet Trials 350 and the Bullet Trials 500 is the colour of the frame. While the 350cc model has a frame finished in a shade of red, the 500cc model features a frame finished in a shade of green.
Powering the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials 350 is the same 346cc motor as seen on the standard variant. This single cylinder, air-cooled engine is capable of producing 19.8 hp at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Similarly, the Bullet Trials 500 also sources power from the same 499cc engine as seen on the standard Bullet. This single cylinder, air-cooled engine is capable of producing 27.2 hp at 5,250 rpm and 41.3 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Both these engines are mated to a five-speed transmission.
