The Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been Royal Enfield’s best-selling model for several years. Since its launch in 2009, the Classic 350 has gone on to sell 30 lakh motorcycles in India, and still accounts for 60-70 per cent of Royal Enfield’s overall sales. The new Classic 350 is built on an all-new platform, sharing the J-series 350 cc engine with the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and the same dual-cradle chassis.
The 350 cc, SOHC engine makes 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm, 27 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The suspension now incorporates fatter 41 mm front forks, with more travel on the dual rear shocks to offer a better ride. The 19-inch front and 18-inch wheels are thicker too, shod with fatter rubber, with a 100 mm front section tyre, and 120 mm section rear tyre.
The Classic 350 has enjoyed immense popularity, fuelling a leisure riding culture in India, and redefining the mid-size motorcycle segment. With several new models planned in the future, Royal Enfield has now set sights on being the leader in the global mid-size motorcycle segment. While the Classic 350 has traditionally been a successful product in the domestic market, this time around, the new Classic 350 has been positioned as a global product, and will be offered on sale across the world, including Europe and the US.
