The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the Chennai-based bike maker’s most popular offering in India. The motorcycle received the mandatory BS6 update a few months back while we got our hands on it recently. You can read our first ride review to find out how the changes in the engine fare in the real world. Meanwhile, here are some of the beautiful pictures from our Classic 350 BS6’s review.
Royal Enfield has retained the modern-classic styling of the Classic 350 which happens to be one of its USPs. However, the manufacturer has introduced a couple of new colour options for the bike.
It continues to sport a round headlamp, pulled-back handlebar, peanut-shaped fuel tank, sprung rider’s seat, peashooter-style exhaust and spoke wheels, all of which exude sheer nostalgia.
The company also has several aftermarket accessories on offer which include headlight grill, saddle bags, pillion seat and the premium engine protection guard.
Going with its retro theme are basic features such as a conventional headlamp, tail lamp and turn indicators along with a fully-analogue instrument cluster.
Although it is powered by the same 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the unit is fuel-injected now. It churns out 19.1bhp of power and 28Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The motorcycle continues to be underpinned by a single downtube chassis which uses the engine as the stressed member. The kerb weight of the Classic 350 has also remained unchanged at 195kgs.
It rides on a 19-18-inch spoke wheel combination which is suspended by telescopic forks up front and dual shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by a disc at both ends assisted by dual-channel ABS.
