Bullet 350 needs no introduction. Now Bullet 350 has been equipped with all new Unit Construction Engine. This classic machine has kept pace with advances in engineering and ergonomics without diluting its impeccable pedigree. A long wheel base and bigger tyres provide increased stability and road grip, making it ideal for long distance travel. If one wishes to hire a two wheeler on rent this can prove to be a good choice.
The earlier models of Enfields, both the cast Iron Engines and the AVL LB Engines used to come with a pre-construction unit which comprised three parts, the engine, gearbox and clutch cases. This 3 part engines needed heavy maintenance because the rider had to change oil at three places each time and the gaskets required replacement frequently.
The three part engine led to a high loss of power in transmission as the setup was not as efficient as modern engines. UCE engines on the other hand produce 19.8 BHP at the crank and the power is 16 BHP at the rear wheel and the mileage has increased from 30-35 kmpl to 45 kmpl in the new set up.
Its aristocratic black & gold livery and thumping engine beat remind passers-by that they are in the presence of automotive royalty. The single saddle seat of the bike allows the rider to explore the mountain ranges in luxurious style. You can visit Wheelstreet bike rentals if you wish to hire a bike that suits your personality and needs.
The hydraulic tappets in UCE would stand at least 18,000 – 20,000 kms before needing any kind of attention. The 346cc engine generates a power of 19.8 bhp @ 5250 rpm and torque of 28 Nm @ 4000 rpm. The fuel tank has a capacity of 13.5 liters and the UCE has increased the average mileage from 35 kmpl to 45 kmpl.
With 280mm Disc, 2-Piston caliper front brakes and 153mm drum, single lead internal expanding rear brakes, not much has been changed in the braking system.
The halogen lamp in the front and a tail light at the back increase visibility while the superior bakes allow the rider to halt the bike at will. The 90/90 - 19front and 110/90 - 18back tyres offer strong road grip. You can pick up the bike on rent and test it yourself.
