19.80 bhp@5250 rpm
The smaller twin of the Classic 500, the Classic 350 will hold its own against any other motorcycle and then pull some more. The Classic 350 shares its powerplant with the legendary Thunderbird Twinspark. The torque to flatten mountains and the fuel efficiency to cross entire ranges comes in the same understated yet charming styling. This is a motorcycle that does not need to shout to be heard. Born of a rich heritage and bred with royal elegance, this 350cc thumper has all the qualities of a typical Royal Enfield. Appreciated then, appreciated now... The Classic 350 is powered by a 346cc engine that churns out 19.8bhp of power and 28Nm of torque. Though the torque has decreased marginally, the power figure has been increased by a significant 1.8bhp. This mill is carburetted and misses out on the electronic fuel injection (EFI) which the Classic 500 gets. This motorcycle has all the qualities of a typical Royal Enfield and a relaxed and comfortable cruiser is what the company still intends to provide. Though there are not many changes to the design, the company has now equipped the motorcycle with 18-inch wheel rims instead of the conventional 19-inchers, giving the owners the freedom to choose their tyres from a wide variety in the aftermarket. Why ride a lesser bike? Nothing more to be said.
