New Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark

Bullet bike lovers could not have asked for more; the Royal Enfield of the Eicher Group recently launched new variants of Electra Twinspark 350 with kick-start and electric start options in India. The new Bullet, ‘Electra Twinspark 350 comes with a price tag of Rs. 89,846-Rs. 93,846.

CEO of the Royal Enfield Company Mr. R.L Ravichandran has stated that the new Bullet Electra Twinspark is an important step towards modernizing their whole range of motorcycles, and the new UCE or the Unit Construction Engine braced vehicles offer great performance, reliability, besides being fuel efficient. The UCE run machines still maintain the true character of the Royal Enfield bikes. At the launch the CEO further remarks that the main goal of this new introduction is to promote bike riding as a lifestyle unlike other Indian bikes.

How does the new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark look?
The new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark kept the looks of the vehicle unchanged; it is simple and maintains the conventional style. Despite the looks being standard it still looks gorgeous and bold, which is a characteristic feature of any Royal Enfield motorcycles and the stand-out feature of the new Electra Twinspark is its finishing quality.

Royal enfield electra twinspark

The huge metal logo of Royal Enfield on the fuel tank looks stylish and the front mudguard is cool. The neutral finder makes it easy and convenient to shift to neutral. The seats are kept wider and flatter, so there are not many modifications in the looks department of the new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark as compared to its predecessor. As regards digitalization Royal Enfield still lags behind the Bajajs and the Hero Hondas. The new Electra Twinspark doesn’t sport digital speedometer and doesn’t sport a tachometer too.

Engine and performance of the Electra Twinspark
The new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark is powered with a 346cc engine that generates a maximum power of 19.8 bhp at 5250 rpm and a torque of 28 Nm at 4000 rpm. The motorcycle company claims that the Electra Twinspark that the bike will also be able to hit maximum of 120kmph speed. As regards the Unit Construction Engine (UCE) it gives fewer maintenance issues, the company remarks. However, it is early to jump the gun and can be proved only after a driving it for sometime. The carburettor has been kicked off and is replaced with an EFI or the Electronic Fuel Injection that is mated with a five-speed gearbox. This according to the company brings about greater optimization of air-fuel combustion as well as improved power delivery with reduced emissions.

The UCE facilitates smoother operation, power delivery and cleaner emissions too according to the company. The bike has gas-filled shock absorbers that enable smooth riding over potholes and speed breakers. The bike can touch a top-speed of 120kmph and will give you a mileage of around 30-40 kmpl. But the mileage might vary depending on the condition of the bike and how you actually ride it. Well, RE bikers are very well aware of the fact that the Bullets aren’t for mileage.

Handling and comfort of the Electra Twinspark
There are certain claims such as low maintenance made by Royal Enfield as regards to the new Electra but until you own one it is hard to decide the handling of the bike and probably a test ride will help you come to one opinion. Low maintenance as claimed by the company can be one discussed after a year from now and it is too early to talk about it now. The company failed when it came to this with many of its models.

Price and color choices of the new Electra Twinspark
There are two variants of the new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark- the kick-start model (Electra Twinspark KS) and the auto or the electric-start (Electra Twinspark ES) version. And, the bike will be available in vibrant colors of Black, silver and red. While the new Electra Twinspark bike with the kick-start option is priced at Rs. 94,500 the electric start variant is priced at Rs. 98,500; both are ex-showroom prices of Delhi.

Last word about the new Electra Twinspark
The new Royal Enfield Electra Twinspark kisses the road with loads of promises from the company; of performance and fuel efficiency but the physical features are hardly touched upon, which could keep the bike away from buyers. The new UCE engine is the only feature of the bike that is something worth looking at this point in time. And, only time will tell if the new Twinspark will survive in the market based on this new UCE engine technology; there is so much competition ahead with the influx of super bikes and the camp at the Royal Enfield will be hoping so it will still be able to cling on to the loyal Bullet fans.

    This new version of Bullect Electra is worthless. It gives a feeling like something is missing or the Heart of Bullet is missing (Engine is missing). This new new Engine makes this bike as a street bike.Bull rider never expect the bullet as an ordinary street bike.The THUMP of Bullet is Muffeled. New look of Electra 5s twinspark make this bike stand in a que of ordinary plastic toys.

    • pritam

      i dont agree..i had an 1989 model bull.recently i sold that and got a electra uce..the new one is a superb bike with xtra advantage of enhanced fuel efficiency,power,pick up,breaking system and less maintenance cost..but the thumping is obviously bit lower than the previous model

      One small correction.
      The bike does not come with EFI (fuel injection) in India. Only classic 500cc comes with EFI.
      Electra still uses the carburetor.

  17. Arun Singh


    I have recently bought a new electra twinspark and am not quite happy with its sound. The sound in the new electra doesn’t gives you a royal enfield thump. I would like to know that what modifications can be done to the silencer which could produce the royal enfield thump as changing the silencer doesn’t suites to be a good option either because most of the royal enfield silencer can nolt be fitted with the new electra twinspark.

    Hope to have a very helpful and a valueble response and guidance from the experts on the same.

    Thanks and regards,

    and its gaint…….makhan hai boss……..

  20. Sameer Kumar

    Hi….. I have bought a brand new Bullet Electra UCE some 3 weeks ago. I am quite happy and satisfied with the bike, it is much more powerful, has more torque and is giving a mileage of 42 kms/litre.

    The bike is extremely responsive, though i have not breached the 45 km speed barrier yet, but the acceleration even in the top gear is amazing. it is a combination of old styling and new technology and that is what progress is all about isn’t it….

    Yes the engine sound gets nagging at times especially for a very attentive and sensitive rider like me, but then who says that the old bullet did not have any clatter…. UCE has a shade higher but i am sure that one can learn to ignore it. The Thump is there but slightly muffled. I tried to install a old model CI silencer to get the thumping sound, but that lead to erratic and noisy feel from the bike…. the strokes were going haywire. I immediately resorted to the original one and could make out the difference in the ride of the bike…. my suggestion to everybody is accept UCE as it is and it is very good believe me… What this engine can offer the previous one cannot and what was offered by the CI engine cannot be offered by the UCE. Comparision sucks….. UCE is technological advancement and the performance is more than satisfactory…… go for it …

    • Durgaprasad

      Hi Sameer.. tat is a goood review !!!

    • APPU


    • Uday

      Gud Review Sameerji

    • Santosh M. C.

      Dear Sameer,

      I agree with your opinion and suggestions whole-heartedly. You are absolutely right. The UCE is the future of Royal Enfield motorcycles. As you said the pick-up is great, rather I would like to say awesome. The same I came to know while taking the test drive of this beauty and immediately booked after that from Royal Enfield Brand showroom at Nerul, Navi Mumbai, Mumbai. One prominent thing I would like to mention is that the bike on which I had a test drive was having an undiluted thump. I was aware about the muffled thump on these new UCE bullets and so curiously asked the showroom guy about this nice thump just like Electra with CAI engine and was told about installation of Retro silence during the 1st servicing. I will definitely go for that, as the thump I had experienced reminded me that I am driving the old Electra with Cast Iron engine.

      So to summarise I can say we will not be leaving the Royal Thump to please our ears while thumping on highway and leading to longest destination. There is not need to honk, as our bike is always show her presence with every turn of our wrist followed by that Da..Da..Da…Da..Da… thumping sound…

      Drive safe……keep thumping…


  21. Sekhon

    I think the comments mentioned here r good but the buss/news is that new engine is not as responsive as old engine, If any body can through light on this it will be really helpfull.

  22. Amjith

    Hi all
    I own the new electra 5s since last 3 weeks and covered 800 kms

    Reg the response,its far better than the old CI engines .

    A small knocking is observed and got clarified with one of my friend who works in RE and came to know that it is reduced in the newer version.

    Reg mileage- at avg speed of 45 , expect more than 40km/l

    Reg maintenance – The old CI engines maintenance cost is higher and there is a saying”If you own an enfield,better own an elephant “…with the UCE engines this vision can be changed…

    To all BULL riders – Electra UCE is the best for less maintenance cost,good pick up and good mileage.


  23. Hemant

    Dear Amjith
    Please Ask your Friend about Standard 350 UCE. Is there Crank of 500 to standard i.e. heavy crank. Company specified only Standard model with Constant Mesh 5 Speed Gearbox. Is it better than other models.
    Please ask him & please tell us about the Facts. It will help us to select model.

  30. abhinav

    hey all, u can now increase the thump sound of ur bullets. For that u have to get ur engine’s thumping sound stopper removed { its kind of Jaali inside every bullet’s engine}. There r around 4 to 5 stoppers inside every bullet. As many jaalis remove out of ur bullet, louder the thump sound wil come. And after getting those jaali removed go for a big mouth silencer… This will increase the thump sound in any bullet..

  31. Sandip

  37. Ananta Niwankar

    Dear Pranesh,

    Please chk the Air Filter Rubber that conencts the Carb & Air filter Box, A slight uneven cirlce can cause more air supply in the Carb, as the ignition needs proportionate amt of air & fuel.
    Do not rev your bike for more than 50 km in early 3k Reading.

    That should fix your problem

    guys i dont know about the old bullet , but my elder brother was using it from past last 7 years back, he said the royal enfiled is always a royal enfiled never bother about old or new it always gud. i bought new Enfiled electra twin spark , its really good bike fuel efficiency is more (42 kmpl) compared to old one . company is giving the 3 filter silencer to reduce the noise and pollution thats why beating was slightly different . there is no problem for that , we can slove it easily in show room it self they are chaning the silencer@ 1800RS/- which gives same beating like old one , and more over the new twin spark engines have low mantience. guys if u want to buy standard one then goto 350cc Electra its the standard model bullet
