Royal Enfield Bullet Trials will be offered with both 350cc and 500cc engines.
The introduction of Jawa Motorcycles has made things more competitive in the retro-styled cruiser segment. Hence, in order to meet this demand, Royal Enfield is looking to expand its entry-level motorcycle lineup with a new scrambler version of its Bullet.
Dubbed as the 350 Trials and 500 Trials, the upcoming scrambler versions of the Bullet will be more focused on the touring segment, thanks to the luggage mounting rack at the rear. Apart from this, the motorcycles will be getting a single-seat and a new upswept exhaust.
Further, there would be some more aesthetic differentiating bits from the standard Bullet 350/500, like knobby off-road tyres, longer rear suspension travel with raised mudguard, etc. Another highlight of this Trial scrambler is the vintage spoke wheels.
Other visual bits seem to be similar, albeit the addition of covers for the front telescopic forks. However, dual-channel ABS will come as a standard fitment in both the Bullet 350/500 Trials.
Mechanically, the two motorcycles are expected to carry the same engines as the standard version. This means, the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 Trials will be powered by a 346cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that generates 19.8 BHP of power and 28 Nm of torque. On the other hand, the 500 Trials will employ the same 499cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out 27.2 BHP of power and 41.3 Nm of torque. These engines are matched to a 5-speed gearbox.
Interestingly, Royal Enfield already sells the scrambler version of the Classic 500 as a separate customisable kit in Europe.
