As per report it was stated that Royal Enfield has updated the base variant of the Classic 350 range with a dual channel ABS unit similar to the one seen on the rest of the Classic 350 series - Gunmetal Grey, Signals and Redditch. The inclusion of ABS comes at a cost of a little under Rs 6,000, which sees the bike’s price rise from Rs 1,47,464 to Rs 1,53,245 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This is one of the lowest price hikes we have witnessed for the addition of dual channel ABS.
The updated Classic 350 receives no other updates and is powered by the same 346cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine found in the rest of the Classic 350 line-up. Output figures, too, remain unchanged at 19.8hp at 5,250rpm and 28Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. The updated bike will continue to be available in four color options - Ash, Black, Chestnut and Silver.
Presently that the entire Classic 350 range has been updated with dual channel ABS, it leaves only the Royal Enfield Bullet 350 and 350 ES that have yet to receive this safety feature. With the April 1, 2019 deadline just a few weeks away, the Bullet 350 bikes are likely to receive the update soon.
