- Approximately Rs 2,000 more expensive now
- Remains unchanged in all other areas
The year 2021 has brought along an array of price hikes from different two-wheeler brands in India. One amongst these is highly-popular Royal Enfield which has bumped the prices of its best-selling model, the Classic 350. The modern-classic offering is available in a host of colour variants, each carrying different price tags. Now, all of them have become dearer by approximately Rs 2,000. The latest variant-wise prices (ex-showroom, Kolkata) of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 are mentioned below.
Single-channel ABS: Rs 163,566
Black (Dual-channel ABS): Rs 171,574
Gunmetal Grey (spoke wheels): Rs 173,427
Gunmetal Grey (alloy wheels): Rs 185,257
Airborne Blue/Stormrider Sand: Rs 181,904
Stealth Black/Chrome: Rs 188,442
Orange Ember/Metallo Silver: Rs 185,257
Apart from the introduction of new colours and BS6-bound changes in its engine, the Classic 350 has remained unchanged over the last few years and feels quite dated now. However, the heavily revised next-generation model of the bike is in the making. It will be based on the all-new J platform which has already spawned the new Meteor 350. The new Classic will utilise nearly the same chassis and engine as the Meteor.
At present, the Classic 350 is based on a single downtube frame that holds a 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine capable of belting out 19.1bhp and 28Nm. It comes mated to a five-speed gearbox. Riding on a 19-inch front and an 18-inch rear wheel, the Classic 350 is suspended by telescopic forks up front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. It weighs around 195kg and incorporates a fuel tank of 13.5litres.
