At the moment, this engine is sweet for 20hp and 27 Nm within the three fashions it underpins, and these figures are more likely to stay unchanged within the Bullet 350 as properly.

For starters, the two-piece seat is changed by a single-piece unit on the Bullet 350, and the design of the rear fender is completely different to the Basic as properly. The bike noticed right here options the identical tail-lamp and indicators because the Basic 350, and that can more than likely carry ahead to the production-ready mannequin as properly.
