The current UCE Bullet will bid farewell to the Indian market with the launch of the new-generation Bullet 350 tomorrow. The upcoming motorcycle will be built on the company's new J-platform, which has already proved its worth with well-liked models like the Classic, the Meteor, and the Hunter. The much-awaited Bullet 350 will enter the market with significant improvements over the current model. However, it is expected to come with a higher price tag than the current version, which starts at Rs 1.50 lakh. Although there is no confirmed information, three variants are anticipated for the upcoming updated vehicle. The two-wheeler is likely to contain a number of additional features, such as ABS, a semi-digital instrument cluster, halogen headlamps, and more. As the market introduction of the new Bullet is only a few hours away, let's look at the features and specifications that the upcoming new-generation Bullet 350 is anticipated to come equipped with.
