The Classic 350 is the product that keeps Royal Enfield’s sales thumping today. In fact, it boasts of sales numbers higher than many 150cc commuter bikes. The Classic Signals is a different take on the regular 350, with a nod to the armed forces. There are two colours available: brown and blue, as an allusion to the Indian army and the air force.
The Classic Signal’s styling is retro but it doesn’t have much chrome on it. The mirror and headlamp surround is black, and there is a serial number stencilled on the tank, just like the Pegasus. This is despite the fact that the Signals isn’t a limited run machine. Optional accessories include a windshield and soft panniers. What is standard, however, is a front and rear disc setup with dual-channel ABS.
The Classic Signals is powered by a carburetted 346cc engine that churns out 19.8bhp of power and 28Nm of torque. It is mated to a five-speed gearbox. It rides on a 19-inch front and 18-inch rear spoke wheels. It gets telescopic front forks and dual spring rear suspension.
The Classic Signals is priced at Rs 1.61 lakhs, a premium of Rs 23,000 over a standard Classic 350. It competes head on with the UM Renegade Classic/Mojave and the Bajaj Dominar 400.
