The Classic 350 is Royal Enfield’s first BS-VI compliant Unit Construction Engine (UCE) based motorcycle and it is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh. Other Royal Enfield offerings will be updated before the 31st March deadline
Royal Enfield has finally launched its first BS-VI compliant motorcycle and what better product to start with than the one that brings the numbers. The BS-VI compliant Classic 350 is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom) – an increase of more than Rs 12,000 over the model it replaces. The Classic 350 will also get a dual-channel ABS as standard. Just like before, the 2020 Classic 350 will be on sale with numerous colour options – Stealth Black, Chrome Black, Signals Airborne Blue, Signals Stormrider Sand, Gunmetal Grey and Classic Black. Interestingly, the Stealth Black and the Gunmetal Grey colour options will be available with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres. Royal Enfield will also offer a 3-year warranty and 3-year Roadside Assistance (RSA) as standard.
Coming to the meat of the matter, the Classic 350 will now feature fuel injection. Royal Enfield has not revealed the power and torque that the Classic 350 now makes but given the shift to FI, the 350 is likely to be more refined and rideable than before.
Speaking about the launch, Vinod Dasari, CEO of Royal Enfield said, “The directive by the Government to adhere to the BS-VI emission norms is a welcome move as it is one of the first steps towards transitioning to the future of mobility. This not just ensures cleaner technology and sustainable mobility but also puts the Indian automotive sector ahead of its global counterparts. We have ensured BS-VI compliance as mandated well ahead of time in the current portfolio to ensure a seamless experience for our existing and potential customers.”
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 competes against the likes of the Benelli Imperiale 400 and the Jawa.
