    The Classic 500 Chrome equipped with ABS.

    Royal Enfield told us that it would be equipping all of its bikes with ABS possibly by the end of the year and by the looks of it, it appears as if they are right on track. The latest model to get the safety feature is the Classic 500.

    According to a dealer, the dual channel ABS-equipped standard variant is priced at Rs 1.99 lakh, the Classic 500 with the matte-finish model costs Rs 2.02 lakh and the Chrome model is priced at Rs 2.10 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom Mumbai). The dealer states that deliveries will be made within the next 10 days.

    Going by these prices, it appears that three Classic 500 variants have been priced Rs 15,000 more than their non-ABS counterparts. The Classic 500 is the third Royal Enfield to receive ABS in India; and it comes soon after the company launched the Himalayan ABS and the new Classic Signals 350 ABS.

    Other than the addition of the ABS components and an ABS decal, the motorcycles will remain visually and mechanically unchanged. The bikes use the same 499cc, single-cylinder motor. This air-cooled engine delivers 27.6hp at 5,250rpm and 41.3Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm.

    These ABS-equipped motorcycles should have a slightly higher kerb weight. However, the exact figure remains to be seen, as Royal Enfield has not yet put details regarding the motorcycles up on its website.

    In other news, prices of all of Royal Enfield’s offerings have gone up owing to a new Supreme Court ruling. See by how much here.
