Fans of Royal Enfield love the brand’s classic style, rugged character, and affordable prices. One of the models that is close to their heart is the Classic 350: a retro-styled bike that pays homage to Enfield’s G2 motorcycle from the 1940s.
With its instantly recognizable look, dependability, and easy operation, the Classic took the manufacturer’s current home market, India, by storm. Millions of units were sold, propelling Royal Enfield to household name status.
However, stricter emissions standards in recent years meant that the aging UCE engine platform’s days were numbered. Unable to meet stringent demands, the Classic went out of production in 2020.
Now, the iconic motorbike is back, and better than ever. Powered by the same 349cc air and oil-cooled single-cylinder engine found in the Meteor 350, the Classic 350 has passed emissions regulations, while still offering its signature look and feel.
It can deliver 20.2hp at 6,100rpm and 27Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Getting that power to the rear wheel is a five-speed manual gearbox, then a balancer shaft reduces the vibrations produced by the thumper powerplant.
Keeping the mill well-fed is a 13-liter fuel tank, while bringing the bike to a stop are front and rear disc brakes with single- or dual-channel ABS depending on the trim. An all-new chassis translates into sharper handling and a more comfortable ride. A wider seat provides more butt support and a recalibrated suspension.
A combination analog speedometer and LCD screen gives the dash a ton of functionality without compromising the classic style. Below the handlebars is a discreet USB charging port so devices stay juiced up, and an optional Tripper Pod enables smartphone pairing and turn-by-turn navigation.
The new Classic 350 is available in five different trim levels and 11 colors, and Royal Enfield offers a wide variety of accessories to make it your own.
Pricing starts at 184,374 Indian Rupees, or about P125,600, and go up to 215,118 Indian Rupees, or around P146,500, with the trim levels.
