For some time now, the headlines of electric scooters catching fire had become a common thing. However, changing the pattern of a new video of a two-wheeler catching fire is being shared on the internet. This time one of the most popular brand of bikes in India suddenly caught fire. The bike in this particular incident is a Royal Enfield Classic 350. The entire incident of the motorcycle catching fire was caught on camera and now the video of the incident has gone viral on the internet.

Based on a video shared on YouTube by a user named Trippyyogi669, the incident took place on the way between Nubra and Pangong. We can guess that the Royal Enfield Classic 350 was being used for a tour of Ladakh before it caught fire. It can be seen in the video that the bike was parked on the side of the road before the electric starter of the bike was activated and it fell on its side. Later, flames could be seen coming out of the bike. These flames keep on increasing as the video progresses.

Video of Royal Enfield Bullet 350 catching fire

There have been incidents of Royal Enfield bikes catching fire in the past as well. Earlier, in April 2022, a video went viral on social media with the claim that a new Royal Enfield bike parked on the roadside in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur district caught fire. Reports at the time suggested that the owner of the motorcycle had driven it non-stop for around 400 km before the incident.

The Royal Enfield Bullet shown in the video looks to be the highest-end Bullet 350 model with an electric starter. However, kick-starting is a common feature on the Bullet 350 model with the base specifications. The new Royal Enfield Bullet 350, which has a kick-starting and instead ships with an electric starter as standard, features the next-gen 349cc J-series engine, thus, this may change in the future.
