2017 Royal Enfield Classic 350 gets a BSIV compliant engine and AHO feature.
Royal Enfield has introduced the 2017 model years of its popular Classic and Thunderbird range. The 2017 Royal Enfield Classic 350 has received a BSIV compliant engine and AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature. In fact, the dealer dispatch of the bike has already commenced across India. Since the BSIV regulations on two-wheelers have been enforced from 1st April 2017, most two-wheeler manufacturers have updated their product lineup in India.
The Classic 350 is the first product in REs lineup that is equipped with BSIV engine and AHO feature. Along with the regular model, the company has also updated the Classic 350 Redditch series launched in December 2016. This special range pays tribute to the original Royal Enfield motorcycles built in Redditch, UK. Powering the motorcycle is a BSIV compliant 346cc, single-cylinder engine producing 19.8bhp and 28Nm of torque. Picture Gallery: Barood – A Tastefully Modified Royal Enfield 350

The bike is claimed to have a top speed of 130kmph.
