Royal Enfield has launched Classic Signals 350, a new variant to the Classic 350 range, as a tribute to the company's 65 years of association with the Indian Armed Forces (since 1952). Priced at Rs 1,61,728 (ex-showroom Chennai), Classic Signals 350 is offered in two colours - Airborne Blue and Stormrider Sand.
Royal Enfield claims that the new colour schemes of Signals 350 have been inspired from coveted units of the Indian Armed Forces. In addition to the unique colours, the Classic Signals 350 edition comes with dark tan leather rider seat while the engine, crankcase, headlamp bezel, wheel rims and exhaust are finished in black.
Each unit is also complemented with unique serial number stencilled on the fuel tank representing the production number.
The bigger news, however, is that Classic Signals 350 gets dual-channel ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) and it is the first Royal Enfield motorcycle to get the safety tech in India. The addition of ABS and war theme has made Classic Signals 350 about Rs 15,000 premium over the regular Classic 350.
There are no changes to the powertrain and cycle parts. The Classic Signals 350 also draws power from the 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that develops 19.8bhp at 5,250rpm and 28Nm at 4,000 rpm.
The mill comes mated to a five-speed transmission. The Classic Signals 350 also features a rear disc brake as opposed to 153mm drum unit on the standard bike.
Unlike the Royal Enfield Classic 500 Pegasus edition that is sold via online flash sale, the booking for the Classic Signals 350 are open via regular dealerships. The Classic Signals 350 is also available with a dedicated collection of gear and over 40 motorcycle accessories that include panniers and steel engine guards.
In addition, Classic Signals themed apparels ranging from shirts, t-shirts, caps, lapel pins, bags and helmets will also be available soon.
