In January 2020, the Chennai-based bikemaker rolled out the BS6-compliant version of its most affordable bike – the Classic 350. Priced at Rs 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom), the new model is around Rs 11,000 more expensive than the old BS4 version. Now, the BS6 Royal Enfield Classic Redditch Edition has started arriving at dealerships across the nation.
The Classic Redditch Edition has been made available at Rs 1.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). The bike comes in a choice of 6 colour schemes – Redditch Red, Ash, Mercury Silver, Chestnut and Pure Black. Unlike the other variants that come with dual-channel ABS, the BS6 Royal Enfield Classic Redditch Edition has been equipped with single-channel ABS.
The BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 Gunmetal Grey variant, on the other hand, is available at Rs 1.66 lakh. This makes it around Rs 12,000 less expensive than the alloy wheel variant that’s priced at Rs 1.78 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom. The Classic Gunmetal Grey variant is now offered spoke wheels. Unofficial bookings of both models have already been commenced, but at select dealerships. Read – All-New Thunderbird To Be Called Royal Enfield Meteor?
Powering the new RE Classic 350 is the BS6-compliant, 346cc, single-cylinder engine pushing out power worth 19.8bhp and a peak torque of 28Nm. The motor now gets fuel injection technology instead of the carburettor.
Royal Enfield is also working on the new-generation Classic 350 that has been caught on camera multiple times. The bike’s all-new model will witness significant cosmetic changes including newly-designed taillamp, updated fuel tank, alloy wheels, a wind deflector, new grab rails and exhaust along with the improved aerodynamics.
