Royal Enfield is all set to launch a special edition of its Classic 350 range on August 28 (Tuesday) at Brahma Motors in Pune. The company is tight-lipped about the upcoming product but says the event is "an ode to the Royal Enfields in service and those ride them."
Meanwhile, images of Royal Enfield Classic 350 with new colour tones have been leaked online. It looks like the Royal Enfield plans to launch Classic 350 special edition on August 28 and it will be a tribute to the Indian armed forces.
For Royal Enfield fans, it's too early to forget the Classic 500 Pegasus. Priced at Rs 2,49,217 (on-road Mumbai), the Classic 500 Pegasus edition is a tribute to the RE/WD 125, a lightweight motorcycle during the World War II era.
The upcoming Classic 350 special edition seems to be in line with this theme of war inspired motorcycle.
Leaked images show the Classic 350 special edition in two colour options - Matte Blue and Matte Beige. Both the colour are usually associated with Indian armed force. The motorcycle will get brown leather rider seat while the engine, crankcase, headlamp bezel, wheel rims and exhaust are finished in black.
In line with the Classic 500 Pegasus edition, the Classic 350 special edition will also get unique serial number stencilled on the fuel tank. In place of the silhouetted image of Bellerophon the warrior in the Pegasus edition, the Classic 350 special edition will get Indian tricolour decal.
Just like any other Royal Enfield's 350cc bikes, the new special edition will also draw power from the 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that develops 19.8bhp at 5,250rpm and 28Nm at 4,000 rpm. The mill will come mated to a five-speed transmission.
Reports also claim the special edition Classic 350 will come equipped with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Royal Enfield is expected to add ABS to its entire range of bikes soon and the special edition could be the starting point.
