The market is buzzing around with the recent launch of Classic 350 Redditch from cruiser bike Brand Royal Enfield. Since August 2018, the Royal Enfield has been working on Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS). ABS prevents the wheels from locking up during braking which allows you to maintain the control of handle-bars and prevents the bike from skidding. The recent regulations with regards to the safety in two-wheelers have compelled bike companies to incorporate the latest changes. According to the rule, ABS is mandatory for the new launches of two-wheelers with the engine capacity of 125cc and above from April 2019. In India, the first Royal Enfield model with ABS is the Classic 350 Signals Edition.
The Classic 350 Redditch is priced at ₹ 1.53 lakh with the model being available in three different colours – Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue that re-imagines the shades from the1950’s motorcycles. The bike competes with the Jawa and Jawa Forty-two when it comes to updating the ABS feature. The company has not done any other mechanical change except for introducing ABS. The standard model is about ₹ 6,000 more expensive than the non-ABS version. It runs with the same engine power of 346cc, single cylinder and air-cooled as we can find in the rest of the Classic 350 range. It produces 19bhp at 5250rpm and 28Nm of peak torque available at 4000rpm.
Royal Enfield has been carrying the legacy of these classic bikes for decades by adding all the latest features that make them be at par with the present day bikes.
