    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ? Find out !!

    2010 Royal Enfield Bullet 350 uce

    The 2010 Bullet 350 uce retains its original styling and comes with options of a front disc brake and electric start. The exhaust though is a a bit too long. With the long exhaust and the original cast iron engine replaced, the original "Bullet Thump" would certainly be now muffled in these 2010 models. But with new BS III (Bharat Stage III) pollution norms coming into force across India from April 2010, the "heart transplant" was probably inevitable.
    Based on the popular and well proven standard 350, now with the all new unit construction engine, this is classic motorcycling with a modern twist. The Bullet uce looks and sounds like a classic British single, but with a significant performance boost, excellent fuel economy and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

    The Bullet standard is a classic motorcycle, simplistic in design with a new, robust and reliable unit construction engine. Comfort takes a front seat with gas filled shock absorbers and a sub frame.

    How does the new Royal Enfield bullet Twinspark look?

    The new Royal Enfield bullet 350 Twinspark kept the looks of the vehicle unchanged; it is simple and maintains the conventional style. Despite the looks being standard it still looks gorgeous and bold, which is a characteristic feature of any Royal Enfield motorcycles and the stand-out feature of the new bullet Twinspark is its finishing quality. 

    The huge metal logo of Royal Enfield on the fuel tank looks stylish and the front mudguard is cool. The neutral finder makes it easy and convenient to shift to neutral. The seats are kept wider and flatter, so there are not many modifications in the looks department of the new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark as compared to its predecessor. As regards digitalization Royal Enfield still lags behind the Bajajs and the Hero Hondas. The new Bullet Twinspark doesn’t sport digital speedometer and doesn’t sport a tachometer too.

    Engine and performance of the Bullet 350 uce

    The new Royal Enfield bullet 350 uce Twinspark is powered with a 346cc engine that generates a maximum power of 19.8 bhp at 5250 rpm and a torque of 28 Nm at 4000 rpm. The motorcycle company claims that the bullet 350 Twinspark that the bike will also be able to hit maximum of 120kmph speed. As regards the Unit Construction Engine (UCE) it gives fewer maintenance issues, the company remarks. However, it is early to jump the gun and can be proved only after a driving it for sometime.  This according to the company brings about greater optimization of air-fuel combustion as well as improved power delivery with reduced emissions.

    The UCE facilitates smoother operation, power delivery and cleaner emissions too according to the company. The bike has gas-filled shock absorbers that enable smooth riding over potholes and speed breakers. The bike can touch a top-speed of 120kmph and will give you a mileage of around 30-40 kmpl. But the mileage might vary depending on the condition of the bike and how you actually ride it. Well, RE bikers are very well aware of the fact that the Bullets aren’t for mileage.

    Handling and comfort of the bullet 350 uce Twinspark

    There are certain claims such as low maintenance made by Royal Enfield as regards to the new bullet 350 but until you own one it is hard to decide the handling of the bike and probably a test ride will help you come to one opinion. Low maintenance as claimed by the company can be one discussed after a year from now and it is too early to talk about it now. The company failed when it came to this with many of its models.

    Price and color choices of the new bullet 350 Twinspark
    Bullet 350 is available only in Black color. Price Update (23,rd March): Prices starting at Rs. 89,846 (ex-Chennai) and going up to Rs. 93,846 for the kick start and electric start variants respectively

    Last word about the new bullet 350 Twinspark

    The new Royal Enfield bullet 350 Twinspark kisses the road with loads of promises from the company; of performance and fuel efficiency but the physical features are hardly touched upon, which could keep the bike away from buyers. The new UCE engine is the only feature of the bike that is something worth looking at this point in time. And, only time will tell if the new Twinspark will survive in the market based on this new UCE engine technology; there is so much competition ahead with the influx of super bikes and the camp at the Royal Enfield will be hoping so it will still be able to cling on to the loyal Bullet fans.

      I don’t know what to say, but I see these UCE’s more comfortable than the traditional Cast Iron engines. What you folks say? I need your advice so that I can replace my old iron bull with new Alluminium bull

      I am owning a Twinspark Thunderbird and previously a ci350.
      I would say that the new UCE is 100% problem free that the old dabba Ci engine.
      CI used to give me starting trouble, oil leak, poor reliability, vibrations etc etc.

      UCE is a true boon, with better reliability, less breakdowns, no oil leaks and smooth drive.

      Only missing factor is the Thump..but with upsweapt silencers , it is not an issue as well.

    4. hemant Said,

      Hey guys,

      I have experienced both the engines and believe me nothing like the old CI engine.

      Truly speaking, due to the pollution norms, the company was forced to shut the old CI engine and come with UCE. Otherwise RE would have never ever stopped CI.

      Simple logic:

      A engine ruling the bike world since 1948 is definitely a proof of master engineering. A engine is replaced when something better comes. That is the reason why other companies models come and go, but RE’s CI engine was never replaced. It is only the norms which forced RE to switch.

      I agree that new UCE engine has certain advantages over the CI engine, but these you can also find in other bikes. In this sense other plastic bikes are better than new RE bikes.

      This is just what I feel and have experienced. Everyone is powered with thier own brains. Recommend you to ride both the engines (for at least 100 KMs) and come to conclusion.

      Regards,
      Bhadresh

      Abhilash,

      hi folks, i was a owner of a RE 1974 STD which was a awesome bike ever rode by me, I was living in hostel so i get to use all the company bikes, even super bike.... but the respect, pride and pleasure came only from RE nothing stood next to it.... the thump, the passion to know what ad how to ride and do little self mech adjustment, in fact became a doctor for bike too.... i loved it to the core.. but due to some personal reason i was forced to sell the bike... it so happened i stopped using the bikes only.. now i am travelling in bus...
      after all the mishaps now i am back in form to pick up RE again, I've been reading quite a lots of review pros n odds about the new RE,
      look new engine are just new to this fast world and people wants everything fall under the track in stead thing in other persons boots.... RE you must know what bike you are riding, how the engine works, love it like your wife, many people aspire to buy it , after they buy they crib no could have bought some other in stead of RE for the same bike... just think which vehicle doesn't have problem for RE not to have!! spend time with the bike which protect you n give you pleasure, go for service regularly, any small abnormality look from from where it comes and try to rectify it... people spend so much of their life time in front of tv or gossips rather do something useful u get ride a awesome RE and a peaceful life....
      i am planning to buy new RE STD 350 UCE...
      Once i get it i ll post you guys what she is upto.....

      hey
      Recently I booked STD350 UCE, and hopefully I will be getting delivery of my bike near Diwali.

      I want to know one thing about the bike, does the new UCE comes with auto decompression or their is some knob for decompression like the old models.

      If their is auto decompression then what is the fun for amp meter in the bike.

    17. Adarsh Said,

      @mohit No,they share same engine. no difference at all !! I'd suggest you to go for the model you love the most. By this I mean, all 350cc UCE engine are same so choose the model you find visually pleasing.
