Royal Enfield introduced the new Classic 350 retro-styled motorcycle in the Indian markets back in September last year at Rs 1.84 lakhs. At present, it is available with a starting ex-showroom price tag of Rs 1.90 lakhs. The 2022 RE Classic 350 receives several feature upgrades in its new guise. It is available in five different trim levels: Redditch Edition, Halcyon, Signals Edition, Dark Stealth, and Chrome Edition.
In terms of power, the 2022 Classic 350 is powered by a new J Series, single-cylinder, four-stroke EFI engine, which also powers the Meteor 350. It is good for a maximum power of 20.2 hp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed constant mesh gearbox.
This engine still emits the characteristic thud of exhaust as observed on its contemporary equivalent. Furthermore, it is the engine that has eliminated the vibrations in the Classic 350. While riding the motorcycle, you experience no vibrations. Minor vibrations begin to appear as you reach speeds of 80-100 km/h. Nitin Autoroids recently created a video comparing the old classic 350 to the new classic 350 in terms of vibrations.
Here is the comparison video in which one can clearly make out that the new version is much better and has fewer vibrations when compared to the old model of the RE Classic 350.
