Royal Enfield has launched its Classic 350 motorcycle in three Redditch series variants – Red, Green and Blue, in India at Rs 1.46 lakh (on-road, Delhi). The series is inspired by 1950’s motorcycles manufactured in Redditch, a UK town known as the birthplace of Royal Enfield motorcycles. Powered by a 346cc Twin spark single cylinder engine, the motorcycle produces 19.8 bhp. The bikes can be booked across Royal Enfield dealerships from 7 January 2017.
We launched the Classic in 2008 based on its popular ‘J2’ model, as the brand has always taken inspiration from its rich heritage to come up with evocative motorcycles in the modern era. The Classic then became one of the most loved motorcycles from Royal Enfield. Looking back into our decades-old legacy, Royal Enfield has given Classic a makeover taking cues from the motorcycles produced at Redditch, Royal Enfileld’s birthplace UK.Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield.
He added that in 2017, Royal Enfield is bringing the Classic 350 in Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue that re-imagine shades on our 1950's motorcyles that first came out of Royal Enfield plant in Redditch, a town steeped in British motorcycle build tradition.
However, there are no mechanical upgrades to the motorcycle and the Redditch range continues to use the 346cc Twin spark single cylinder engine that delivers 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm.
