Royal Enfield is on a spree of updating its entire product line-up with Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), trying to keep up with the safety norms. The safety norms will be effective from April 1st, 2019 and make it mandatory for the motorcycle manufacturers to equip their products with ABS and other safety features. Royal Enfield has equipped the base variant of Classic 350 with a dual-channel ABS, the brand already offers other Classic 350 (Signals 350, Redditch and Gun Metal Grey) models equipped with the same unit.
This new update will cost the buyer with an extra Rs. 6,000 and will increase the price from Rs. 1,47,464 to Rs. 1,53,245 (All prices ex-showroom). Except for this update, the Classic 350 doesn't get any other features and comes equipped with the same 346 cc, single-cylinder and air-cooled mill that powers other models of the Classic 350 series as well. The motor makes 20.1bhp at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm and it is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle wears 19inch spoked wheels shod with MRF Nylogrip Zapper rubber.
Classic 350 is available in 4 colour options namely - Black, Ash, Silver and Chestnut. Now, only two motorcycles from the stable of Royal Enfield are awaiting to be equipped with this update - Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and Bullet 350 ES. As mentioned above, the deadline set by authorities is April 1st, 2019 and we can expect the ABS variant of these motorcycles to come up anytime soon.
