The All-New Classic 350
Royal Enfield has been a symbol of resilience, purposeful longevity, and authenticity since 1901. It has preserved the legacy of building simple, harmonious classic motorcycles by blending traditional craftsmanship with modern technology, to create pure motorcycling experiences. In its 120th year, Royal Enfield re-envisions its iconic motorcycle, the Classic, with the launch of the All-New Royal Enfield Classic 350 – a timeless classic motorcycle reimagined to meet modern aspirations. The sublime beauty and confidence of the Classic, now enhanced with a more smooth and refined ride experience.
Powered by the modern, globally appreciated 349cc air-oil cooled single cylinder engine, launched recently on the Meteor, the all-new Classic 350 brings in a new level of comfort, smoothness and refinement in ride experience. With the 349cc, fuel-injected, air-oil cooled engine, the Classic generates a power of 20.2 bhp at 6100rpm and a torque of 27Nm at 4000rpm, resulting in a strong low-end grunt and super smooth linear power delivery across the band, making the ride enjoyable and effortless. With the primary balancer shaft that cuts down the vibrations, the reborn Classic feels smooth and well-mannered on road. The gear shifting is crisp and smooth, thanks to the optimised 5-speed gearbox that ensures strong in-city acceleration, as well as a relaxed ride at cruising speed. Much to the joy of Royal Enfield enthusiasts, the new Classic 350 retains the unmistakable thump of the exhaust note.
Designed and developed by talented teams of designers and engineers based at Royal Enfield’s two state-of-the-art technology centres, in India and the UK, special care has been paid to ensure a superlative ride experience on the all-new Classic 350. The all-new chassis is built for superior comfort and manoeuvrability. Designed to be stiffer, the chassis encourages more confidence at higher cornering speeds, and feels planted and stable on straight roads. The front and rear suspension has been extensively developed for more comfortable saddle time. With better ride ergonomics and more confident braking, the Classic feels agile and responsive and promises to heighten the ride experience each time.
- The Classic Chrome Series – A premium standout edition, the Classic Chrome series reflects the rich look and feel of British motorcycles from the 1950’s. Available in dual-tone colour tanks in two colourways – Chrome Red and Chrome Bronze – the Chrome series bears true insignia of its past with striking tank badges that were adorned by the Royal Enfield’s of the 1950’s.
- The Classic Dark Series – A youthful, urban and a custom take on the Classic 350, and comes in Stealth Black and Gunmetal Grey colourways. These motorcycles come fitted with alloy wheels and tubeless tyres.

- The Halcyon series – As the name suggests, is a celebration of the Classic’s legacy and reflects the glorious retro classic look. It is available in Green, Grey and Black colourways.
While the form and factor of the all-new Classic 350 retains its timeless beauty and essence, every aspect of the motorcycle is brand new. The Classic 350 now has a refreshed look and an all-premium fit and finish. The signature post-war British motorcycle styling, with visual harmony accentuated by flowing lines from front to the tail, continue to make the Classic 350 a visual treat. The motorcycle bears Royal Enfield’s signature style of the teardrop shaped tank, casquette and houses a new headlamp with new pilot lamps.
For more comfortable hours on the saddle, the new Classic has new, wider seats with soft-foam cushion padding. With brand new handlebars, the riding position has been subtly tweaked to further improve comfort whilst maintaining that familiar Classic feeling. Bringing in the modern touch is the new digi-analog instrument cluster that houses an LCD info panel. A USB charging point will be mounted below the handlebar for the convenience of quick charging on the go.
The new Classic 350 starts from RRP $7,990 inc. GST, and comes with a 3 year warranty, and 3 years roadside assistance package. The new Classic 350 will be arriving in New Zealand dealerships in the second half of February, and is available to order now.
