Our professional team’s review
We have driven many Indian motorcycles (pulsar, karizma, old CBZ, pulsar 220) but the bullet is one bike which thrills us every time we ride it. The ride, stability, pick up, handling is all perfect even though the basic design is some 50years old! We believe that this is the safest bike one can buy in India thanks to its solid weight, large wheelbase, and big tyres. To drive a bullet for the first time is one experience you will never forget and will almost always leave with a desire to buy your own!
At Rs. 65000, the Bullet is a real thing. Must ride it. If you don’t want to buy new, buy old. And do get one if you like adrenalin! Simply because this is a bike to drive and feel and not talk much about. One ride changes you thinking about driving. The Bullet is more comfortable than even cars for a driver.
Engine : 4 stroke singe cylinder air-cooled engine
Power :18bhp@5000 rpm
Max speed :100kph (the company says -but we have done
around 120 in Aneesh’s bullet )

The bullet, have to say, for heavy traffic & city congestion it may not be the greatest bike. It is one bike best suited for the open road where you can really open her up, feeling the wind on your face, and the monster giving out that unique engine sound u will definitely don’t want to stop riding it. Long distance driving is most comfortable on a bullet, and hours will pass before you get really sore.
The thing we said on max speed is one thing that all the speed freaks have to hear . we did a drag race between our friend’s pulsar and a bullet… bullet was slow on start as pulsar gained advantage of its acceleration at lower gears but as pulsar reached top speed the bullet was gaining on us. Both had a pillion .. the pulsar touched 110 and the bullet kept on gaining as it overtook and gain much higher speed….. that was one hell of a race we could never forget
Another thing is that maintenance bills can add up from small things as you really need to have everything in perfect condition. As for fuel economy, never compare Bullet with 100cc plastic bikes. The real bullet is a cast-iron engine monster .If you really have interest in a bullet and have the patience to learn the art of starting it etc then you really should look into buying one.
What its proud owner says::
“Its been my dream for a long time to own a bullet standard 350..Although many people says that the bullet is a pain to start, unreliable, heavy, tiresome etc etc, one has to understand that the Bullet must become your own, it is really like a living thing, and responds to how you treat her. Service her regularly, don’t be too rough, keep the monster clean, ride like u r the king of the world… actually it does feel like u r the king of the world when riding a bullet.. Every other bikes feels like tiny little creatures running on road…and she will as reliable as any of other new age bikes on road but more pleasurable”
