A massive update brings the popular Classic back to the future.
With its familiar looks, it may not look like it, but the engineers at Royal Enfield have done as much as they could while not messing with what gets them the nutty sales numbers. When compared to the outgoing model, it has major improvements to the engine, frame, suspension and brakes, but without compromising on the feel that customers will expect. They’ve also added a couple of features and improved the fit and finish, while they were at it. With a starting price of Rs 1.84 lakh the single channel ABS-equipped Redditch variant is competitively priced. The Halcyon, Signals, Dark and Classic Chrome variants are progressively more expensive. The good thing is that from the Halcyon onwards, underneath the skin, all the models are more or less the same. As a package, the Classic 350 has been modernised and improved in almost every way. However, RE has also managed to retain the virtues that Classic fans tend to love and that makes this motorcycle a safe, yet worthy successor to the original.
