2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 deliveries begin [Video]
Royal Enfield has just launched the new generation of the Classic 350 and it has received good reviews from everyone. Deliveries of the 2021 Classic 350 have already started. Here is a video of the new generation Classic 350 delivered to the customer in Coimbatore. The motorcycle that was delivered is the Signals -Marsh Gray. The Halcyon Green Classic 350 is the showroom’s test bike.
The Classic 350 was launched at a starting price of Rs. 1.84 lakh. This price is for Redditch series which comes with single channel ABS. The Halcyon series with dual channel ABS costs Rs. 1.93 lakh. Then there is the series of signals which costs Rs. 2.04 lakhs. The Dark Series costs Rs. 2.11 lakhs and it comes with alloy rims as standard. Finally, there are the chrome variants which are priced at Rs. 2.15 lakhs. All prices are understood to be ex-showroom.
The 2021 Classic 350 is based on an all new J platform which significantly improves the handling of the bike. It now feels nimble and easy to drive compared to the old one. The engine is also new, it is an air-oil cooled 349cc single cylinder engine. The engine has a thump and the exhaust also sounds great.
It produces 20.2 PS of maximum power and a maximum torque of 27 Nm. The engine is much smoother now but still has a torquey nature. It can transport from low speeds to higher speeds quite easily. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox that shifts smoothly and there are no more false neutrals now.
The basic variant receives a front disc at the front and a drum brake at the rear. It benefits from a single channel anti-lock braking system. The front disc measures 300mm while the rear one measures 270mm. Other variants come with a front disc and a rear disc. It has a dual channel anti-lock braking system. The brakes lack initial bite but are much better than the previous one.
A lot of material was borrowed from the Meteor but that’s not a bad thing as we liked the Meteor. The bike shares the same engine, the same platform, the same brakes and the same switchgear. Royal Enfield has also added functionality to the Classic. He now finally gets a fuel gauge. There is a small display located below the circular analog speedometer. The screen displays Eco mode, fuel gauge, service reminder, odometer, two trip meters and time.
Royal Enfield offers many accessories so you can customize your Classic to your preferences. You can get different engine guards, crankcase protector, footrests, handlebar mirrors, saddlebag rail, saddlebag, alloy rims, lowered seat, passenger and passenger touring seat, rear rack, springs pilot seat, visor, windshield, backrests, seat covers and mirrors. You can even get the Tripper Navigation module that we first saw on the Meteor 350 and then on the Himalayas.
