Design and Style

Royal Enfield Classic 350 looks like a copy of its elder sibling, Classic 500. Apart from color, there is no major difference in these bikes which you can notice at first glance. The bike has body colored retro looking front fender. The front forks also gel well with its overall styling as they are partly chrome finished which suits its multi-spoke steel rim. Its tiger eye lamps and circular headlight makes it look like Bullet but to differentiate, this bike features a small chrome finished tiny visor. Apart from this, Classic 350 has familiar orange colored circular indicators and chrome finished rear view mirrors.

Classic 350 features a new fuel tank with simple styling and thigh rubber pads. This tank makes this bike look vintage and premium. The bike is offered with two types of seating which includes solo rider seat with coil springs or with a split seat for the pillion rider. Its heavy steel engine is placed below its fuel tank. The bike has body colored side panels and toolbox. Its long and curvy silencer enhances the visual appeal of this bike. It’s heavily chromed and gives a fresh look to this bike. Its full-size real cowl carries its chromed side indicators and boxy tail light which gives a compact look to this bike along with its rear broad tire.

Classic 350 has similar instrument console to its other siblings. It features a fully analog instrument console with two circular dials. These dials are of different sizes and both of them are chrome surrounded. A regular speedometer and odometer can be seen in the bigger dial while the smaller dial houses its analog fuel gauge.

This is a tried trusted engine which offers powerful low and mid-range. The bike is not for speed enthusiasts, it’s only for those who are in search of relaxed highway cruising.

It can reach a top speed of 110 km/hr. Classic 350 remains calm and relaxed when pushed hard. It can even pick up from the speed of 30 km/hr in its fifth gear. This curvy silencer makes really less noise and comes with reduced thumping effect. Bullet fans may not like this change though. Classic 350's mileage in the city is 30 kmpl. The bike may give you a mileage of around 35-40 kmpl on highways.
