Bullet 350 latest price hike for recently unveiled entry variants closes the gap with the dual-channel ABS versions. Reason hasn’t been disclosed…
In order to fight out the massive downturn in the economy, Royal Enfield thought price was one deterrent for buyers and as a corrective step, it launched cheaper versions of both Bullet 350 as well as its largest seller Classic 350.
Bullet 350 – the cheapest Royal Enfield received two new lower variants which were shod with single channel ABS and came with some cosmetic differences. It was offered in both kick start (yes… RE still sells kick starters in motorcycles costing over 1 Lakh!) as well as electric start variants, with prices starting at Rs 1.12 Lakh ex-showroom Delhi.
In a latest update, the company has increased prices of both the models by upto Rs 3600. Here are the latest prices with the actual price hike…
Bullet 350 Latest Price
|Model||Older Price||New Price|
|Bullet 350 1ch ABS KS||Rs 1,12,000||Rs 1,14,754|
|Bullet 350 1ch ABS ES||Rs 1,26,692||Rs 1,30,365|
*all prices ex-showroom Delhi
The price hike on the lower variant is Rs 2754 whereas it is a significant Rs 3673 on the higher trim. It appears that prices of the regular dual channel ABS versions have remained unchanged at Rs 1.21 Lakh and 1.36 Lakh respectively for kick and electric start variants respectively (ex-showroom Delhi).
This means that the price gap between the two variants has shrunk to about Rs 6000 from about Rs 9000 earlier. The exact reason of this price hike on select variants has not been disclosed by the company yet.
