Royal Enfield has launched their first ever motorcycle which is equipped with dual channel ABS in India. This is in the form of Classic 350 special edition. This new special edition is called Classic Signals Edition.
The new Royal Enfield Classic Signals 350 pays tribute to the Indian Armed Forces. Unlike the Pegasus 500, this is not a limited edition motorcycle. But Pegasus 500 could have had a major role to play in the launch of Classic Signals 350.
Pegasus 500 was only limited to 250 units. And all these units were sold in a matter of just 178 seconds. This left many buyers wanting for more. But as it was a limited edition, nothing could be done. For such fans, the Classic Signals 350 is perfect, and it comes with dual channel ABS.
Considering that there is a huge demand for motorcycles which are marketed as ‘inspired from Armed Forces’, expect the Royal Enfield 350 Classic Signals to garner more sales for the Indian motorcycle brand ahead of the festive season.
New Royal Enfield 350 Classic Signals edition launch price is pegged at Rs 1.62 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). That puts it at a premium of Rs 15,000 over the standard 350 variant. Classic Signals edition is not a limited offering but each bike will be numbered prominently on the tank.
The bikes are noticeable in their exclusive paint scheme and offered in 2 colour choices – Stormrider Sand and Airborne Blue. A tall windscreen and panniers are on offer as accessories. 350 Classic Signals edition features a brown/tan seat and all-black finish for most other visible bits – engine, frame, wheels, exhaust, and handlebar and headlight bezel.
Powering the Classic Signals 350 is the same single cylinder 346 cc engine which delivers 19.8 hp and 28 Nm. It is mated to a 5 speed transmission, and weighs 192 kgs. It has a 13.5 liter fuel tank. The new addition also gets a wind deflector in the front.
Classis 350 is the best selling Royal Enfield. It accounts for about 85% of company’s total sales. Before today, the RE 350 was available in 7 colour options of Ash, Chestnut, Silver, Black, Redditch Red, Redditch Green, and Redditch Blue. With today’s launch, the RE 350 is available in two more colours of Stormrider Sand (Indian Army inspired) and Airborne Blue (Indian Air Force inspired).
Royal Enfield 350 ABS can be bought from any dealership across India. Soon, Royal Enfield will offer ABS on all their motorcycles in India. Expect the same to happen by February 2019.
