The all-new Classic 350 is the second model to be based on the same platform as the Meteor 350, with the two models sharing quite a few components, including the new Royal Enfield 350cc single-cylinder J-Series engine. Classic 350 was launched in India last year and gets a facelift, with a new, more modern engine, new chassis, updated suspension, new wheels and new brakes.

The 349 cc single-cylinder engine develops 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The compression ratio has been increased from 8.5:1 on the UCE 350 engine to 9.5:1 on the new 350cc SOHC engine. The cam gears have been replaced by a timing chain, along with the SOHC system, which results in less noise and more efficient valve timing. The chain primary transmission has been replaced by a gear primary transmission, which reduces transmission losses, and the primary balance shaft reduces vibration on the engine.

The Classic’s heritage dates back to 1948 with the Royal Enfield Model G2, the first to feature swingarm rear suspension on a production motorcycle. The G2 model served as the design inspiration for the hugely popular Classic 500 and Classic 350 launched in 2008. The Classic 350, in fact, has become Royal Enfield’s best-selling model since then, accounting for 70-80%. brand sales over the past decade. Even now, the Classic 350 accounts for 60-70% of the brand’s overall sales, but so far those numbers have been confined to the Indian domestic market.
