The Royal Enfield Classic Chrome is a member of the Classic family of motorcycles from the Chennai based two-wheeler maker. It embodies the Classic design and underpinnings but has the added chrome factor to bring attention to the motorcycle.
It is powered by an air-cooled 499cc fuel injected mill that produces 27bhp and a whopping 41Nm of torque making for cruising on the highway an easy job. The engine has been mated to a five-speed gearbox and a chain drive. It is underpinned by a single downtube frame and uses the engine as a stressed member. The front gets 35mm telescopic forks with 130mm travel while the rear suspension has twin gas charged shock absorbers with a 5-step adjustment. The front has a 280mm disc while the rear gets a 240mm disc as standard. ABS is an option that will set you back by an extra Rs 15,000 or so.
Standard features on this bike include a single piece analogue speedometer, electric start but no fuel gauge. What you do get instead are warning lights for various things like battery and low fuel. The Classic Chrome is available in two colours black and maroon both dark shades that will hide well behind the chrome parts.
