Nearly 7,000 units of the popular Royal Enfield Bullet have been recalled in India owing to a faulty brake caliper bolt. The said component holds the brake hose and brake caliper in place. The recall has affected variants such as the Bullet 350, Bullet 350 ES and the Bullet 500 manufactured between March 20 to April 30, 2019.
The company will be contacting affected customers soon and replace the faulty component at no extra cost. However, we recommend taking your motorcycle to the bikemaker’s service centre for a thorough inspection.
The Bullet 500 is powered by a 499cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine which produces 28PS of power and 41.3Nm of torque. The Bullet 350 and 350 ES, on the other hand, are powered by a 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which churns out 20PS of power and 28Nm of torque. While the Bullet 500 gets front and rear disc brakes coupled with a dual-channel ABS, the Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES get a 280mm front disc, a drum brake at the rear. The two cruisers also get a single-channel ABS as standard.
