Royal Enfield Classic 350, the most popular RE bike and the company’s highest selling model have received new colours, along with some feature updates. The same is also going to be on offer witht he Classic 500.

The two important changes to be seen on both the Royal Enfield Classic 350 Gun Grey and Stealth Black 500 are rear disc brake and swing arm from the Thunderbird range. The incorporation of this feature will not only give the bikes better stability and ability to accommodate disc brake which was not feasible with the earlier swing arm, but will also enhance weight distribution and aid in better adjustment of center of gravity. The Swing Arm at present is at the rear end of the bike and allows for fitment of rear axle, rear suspension and rear tyre.
Royal Enfield does not offer ABS on any of its models in India, though it is offered on the company lineup in global markets. Royal Enfield will also ensure that these two models are ABS ready in much the same way as the company’s Euro spec Enfields. This is in keeping with ABS becoming mandatory in India from April 2018.
