The Royal Enfield Bobber 350 has been spotted testing once more, and new spy photos reveal further more features. Here’s everything we know so far about Royal Enfield’s fifth 350cc offering. The new Royal Enfield Bobber 350 will be built on the company’s current platform. As a result, it will use the J-series 349cc single-cylinder engine seen on the new Bullet 350, Classic 350, Hunter 350, and Meteor 350. It produces 20.2bhp and 27Nm and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. However, its chassis could be slightly changed to fit the additional Bobber-specific features. For example, the rear floating seat unit appears to be unique to the Bobber and may be removable as well. The handlebar is also noticeably tall, resulting in an upright rider triangle when combined with the forward-set footpegs.
Furthermore, unlike the existing 350s, the Bobber could come standard with an LED headlamp, making it appear significantly more upscale than its brothers. When compared to prior test bikes, this one has more chrome, primarily on the engine and exhaust arrangement. Closer investigation reveals white-walled tyres on both ends. These have spoke wheels, which are prevalent on the Bullet, Hunter, and Classic. However, we may expect Royal Enfield to provide optional alloy wheels.
In addition to an LED headlight, the Bobber 350 might have a twin-pod instrument console with Tripper Navigation. However, based on Royal Enfield’s current practise, navigation might be given as an optional extra rather than as standard equipment.
Royal Enfield could make an official announcement by the end of the year, and the Bobber 350 is expected to cost more than Rs. 2 lakh (ex-showroom). It will almost certainly be the only Bobber bike in the 350 class. However, there are numerous additional possibilities with comparable engine capacity.
