Royal Enfield Classic 350 ABS has been launched in India for INR 1.53 lakh (Ex-Delhi). The motorcycle marks the completion of ABS upgrade in the Classic series, leaving all four variants for the 350 and five variants for the 500cc model with dual channel ABS.
The price hike was minimal on the base variant, clearing the fact that Royal Enfield wishes to keep the base variant approx INR 10,000 lower than the Signals Edition. The latter started the ABS revolution among the Classic series bikes and even got stuck in a controversy with Pegasus Edition owners for similar badging and finish.
Classic 350 is powered by a 346cc, single cylinder engine, producing 20 HP at 5250 rpm and 28 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The same engine is working under the frame of Bullet and Thunderbird series, producing exactly similar output and leaving the seating position different on all three of them.
The highest selling model is still the Classic 350 but after the inclusion of ABS, the prices of Thunderbird and Classic series does not have that huge gap as before, helping the former gain some number from those who need higher fuel carrying capacity.
The motorcycle comes without a tachometer and thus, helps the Thunderbird gain some traction among the fans. Classic 350 Gunmetal Grey is available INR 1.55 lakh while Classic 350 Signals can be bought for INR 1.63 lakh. The Redditch edition is priced at the same point as the regular Classic 350 variant at INR 1.53 lakh.
