    Royal Enfield Classic 350 base variant gets rear disc brake

    Royal Enfield has introduced a rear disc brake on the base variant of the Classic 350. The first Classic 350 to feature a rear disc brake was the gun metal shade which was introduced last year. The base Classic 350 with rear disc brake has been priced at Rs 1,47,195 (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

    It must be noted that the twin-disc variant of the Classic 350 doesn’t come equipped with ABS – that feature is only available on the Signals variant which retains for Rs 1,61,984 (ex-showroom, Mumbai). Rudratej Singh, president, Royal Enfield Motors Limited had recently shared with us the company’s plans to introduce dual-channel ABS across its range and the addition of a rear disc brake on the base Classic 350 is a step in the same direction.

    Apart from the addition of a rear disc, no changes have been made to Royal Enfield’s most popular motorcycle. It’s powered by a 346cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine, producing 19.8hp and 28Nm of peak torque, and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. RE is also gearing-up for the launch of the 650 twins expected to go on sale in India by late 2018. We will be riding the new Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650 next week in the USA, so stay tuned to our website and social media handles for the latest updates.
