The Look:

At first glance Royal Enfield Classic 350 appears a spitting image of Classic 500, expect for the colour, but a closer look reveals certain new features. The body coloured front fender covers the front tyre completely and the semi-chrome front forks merge well into the overall styling of the bike. The round headlight, the hallmark of Bullet, with eye lamps and tiny chrome-finish visor gives it a distinctive look. Classic 350 is fitted with a new simple design fuel tank imparts a vintage and premium look. The bike offers two seating options – solo rider seat with coil springs and a split seat for pillion rider. The long, curvy and heavily chromed silencer enhances the visual appeal of this bike.

The Console:

The Classic 350 instrument console is no different from its other versions and is fully analogue with twin circular dials of different sizes framed in chrome. The bigger dial displays a regular speedometer and odometer, whereas the smaller dial houses the fuel gauge. An engine kill switch is also provided.

The Performance:

Royal Enfield Classic 350 is fitted with a tried and tested single cylinder, 4-stroke 346cc engine. This powerful air-cooled engine provides 19.8 BHP at 5250 rpm with a torque output of 4000 rpm of 28 nm. A 5-speed manual gearbox with a gear shift pattern of one gear down and four gears up is also provided. Despite a powerful engine, the bike is not for speedsters, but rather for those who enjoy relaxed cruising. High amount of torque at low rpms enables the bike to turn into a heavy load carrier. Although the throttle response is not instant, but once it gains momentum, the engine turns absolutely smooth and can touch 100 kmph without any vibrations. The bike can notch up a top speed of 125 kmph.

The Ride:

To make the ride smooth Royal Enfield Classic 350 is provided with rear gas-filled 5-step adjustable shock absorbers. What give this bike rock solid stability at high speeds are its 1370 mm wheelbase and a low ground clearance of 135 mm. This makes it ideal for handling on highways as well as in city traffic.

The Consumption:

Classic 350 gives 37 kmpl in city run and more on highways.
