Royal Enfield launching Bullet Trials on 26 March

The Royal Enfield Trials — both 350 and 500 variants — is inspired by the company's trial bikes of the 1950s

New Delhi: Royal Enfield is bringing a new motorcycle to the market: Bullet Trials. The Royal Enfield Bullet Trials was seen in December 2018 when it was being tested. After that, some pictures of the new motorbike appeared online.

Now a teaser video has revealed that the Royal Enfield Bullet Trials will be launched on 26 March. The teaser shows one of the two variants wading through a water crossing with the text “The most enduring tale in motorcycling” overlaid on the video.

This bike from Royal Enfield will be launched in two variants: Bullet Trials 350 and Bullet Trials 500.

The Royal Enfield Trials is inspired by the company’s trial bikes of the 1950s. Both the new bikes are likely to have Bullet range engines and gearboxes.

The Bullet 350 has a 346 cc engine, which generates power of 19.8 hp and 28 Nm torque.
The Bullet 500 has a 499 cc motor, which generates 27.2 hp of power and 41.3 Nm torque. Both the engines are equipped with a 5-speed gearbox.

The engine of either model is still a BS-IV compliant rather than conforming to higher emission standards.

In addition to the engines, the new bikes’ tank and side panels bear typical Bullet looks. However, the fenders of the Bullet Trials are small, which adds to the styling. Apart from this, the off-road bike is equipped with long handlebars.

There are rubber gaiters on the conventional telescopic forks.

The new Royal Enfield Bullet Trials in the video has frames, a swing arm, subframe and fender-stay. There will be a rack instead of the rear seat. However, a rear seat option can be offered. Given the off-road theme, its exhaust has been lifted upward.

While the company is lip-locked about the prices, expect a cost of around Rs 1.9 lakh. That’s higher than the price of RE Himalayan, which is worth Rs 1.81 lakh.
