The all-new Royal Enfield Classic 350 is here. The new generation of modern classic has debuted with five variants to choose from and a total of 11 colour options.
The new-generation Royal Enfield Classic 350 has made its debut. The Indian motorcycle maker has priced its newest modern classic between Rs 1.84 lakh and Rs 2.15 lakh (ex-showroom). The new Classic 350 continues to rival the Honda H’ness CB350, Jawa Standard and Benelli Imperiale 400. The bookings for this new Classic 350 will commence at 6 pm today i.e September 1, 2021.
The new Classic 350 is nominally more expensive than the model it replaces. The prices for the older-gen Classic 350 started at Rs 1.79 lakh, and the newer one demands a premium of Rs 5,000 – for the entry-level model.
2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 variant wise price break up:
Redditch - Rs 1.84 lakh (ex-showroom)
Halcyon - Rs 1.83 lakh (ex-showroom)
Signals - Rs 2.04 lakh (ex-showroom)
Dark - Rs 2.11 lakh (ex-showroom)

The new bits include an all-new chassis and a new 349cc single-cylinder engine. The engine uses an oil-cooler mechanism for heat management. The power output is 20.2bhp at 6,100rpm and 27Nm at 4,000rpm. The gearbox is a five-speed unit.
The 2021 Classic 350 is based on the same platform as the Royal Enfield Meteor and most cycle parts are shared between the two. The braking hardware is the same and Classic 350 gets a dual-channel ABS as an option – just as the older generation model. The suspension system includes 41mm telescopic forks up front and dual shock absorbers in the rear. The seat height is marked at 805mm and the motorcycle tips the scale at 195kg.
Despite being an all-new motorcycle, the 2021 Classic 350 recalls the styling and design bits from its predecessor. The headlamp assembly, instrument cluster layout, fuel-tank design is largely the same. That being said, the new Classic 350 packs a few features that are at par with most modern motorcycles i.e a tripper-metre, USB charger – most of which we have seen on the Meteor.
