Royal Enfield Classic 350’s New Avatar
Royal Enfield has launched its highest selling model, the Classic 350, with dual-channel ABS in Incdia today at Rs 1.61 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). This is in the form of Classic 350 special edition. This new special edition is called Classic Signals Edition. The new Royal Enfield Classic Signals 350 pays tribute to the Indian Armed Forces. The Classic Signals 350 is also the first Royal Enfield motorcycle on sale in India to be equipped with dual-channel ABS. The bike will be sold through dealerships only, and not online.
The bikes are noticeable in their exclusive paint scheme and offered in 2 colour choices – Stormrider Sand and Airborne Blue. A tall windscreen and panniers are on offer as accessories. 350 Classic Signals edition features a brown/tan seat and all-black finish for most other visible bits – engine, frame, wheels, exhaust, and handlebar and headlight bezel. Both bikes are also equipped with optional saddle bags, crash guards and large windscreens. It also gets a unique serial number painted on the tank in large font. Enhancing its retro appeal are blacked-out elements like the exhaust muffler, engine, rims, handlebar and the headlight bezel. The bike also has a metal Royal Enfield badge on the tank finished in gold and green. While the bikes are being displayed without rear seats, Royal Enfield has said that it will provide them with the motorcycle.
Mechanically, the new Classic Signals 350 remains identical to the standard motorcycle. It’s powered by a 346cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine producing 19.8hp and 28Nm of peak torque. Power is transmitted via a 5-speed gearbox. Also, the Classic Signals 350 features a rear disc brake as opposed to 153mm drum unit as seen on the standard bike.
The new variant of the Classic 350 is Rs 22,000 dearer than the standard Classic 350, which is priced at Rs 1.39 lakh. Royal Enfield 350 ABS can be bought from any dealership across India.
