Royal Enfield will soon update its two highly popular models – Classic 350 and Classic 500 – in the Indian market. This will surely help the bikemaker boost sales of both the products, especially when festive season is just around the corner. Both the RE Classic motorcycles will get the swingarm suspension unit borrowed from the Royal Enfield Thunderbird. This will improve the overall riding experience of the bikes.
The Chennai-based bikemaker will also introduce a rear disc brake on the RE Classic 350 and Classic 500. The Classic 350 will also get a new ‘Gun Grey’ shade along with the regular five colour options – Silver, Lagoon, Mint, Black, Ash, Chestnut, Redditch Green and Redditch Red. The front and rear mud guards, side boxes and fuel tank will be painted in the new Gun Grey colour scheme. Read About – New Royal Enfield 1000cc Bike

Similar to the Royal Enfield Classic 500 Chrome that was showcased at the 2017 NADA Auto Show in Nepal, the new RE Classic 350 will feature a dark tan seat.
