The video starts With the Anchor introducing his Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Toyota Fortuner SUV. he then explains the whole plan of trying to tow the Toyota Fortuner SUV using the Classic 350. He then takes out a rope and ties it on the tow hook of the Fortuner and the other end on the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and starts pulling it.

For some time it looked like an impossible task for Royal Enfield as it was not able to move the SUV even a bit and the Classic 350 even stalled in between. After some time Royal Enfield started making some progress and started towing the Fortuner. Once the RE gained some momentum, towing the Fortuner was a piece of cake. The rider towed the SUV for quite some distance before stopping.

Coming to the heart of the matter, that is Royal Enfield Classic 350’s engine, It is powered by a 346cc , unit construction engine That produces about 19.8 Bhp and 28 Nm of torque and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. This torque is available from a very low rpm as it has a long-stroke engine. It is that what helped the Royal Enfield tow a Fortuner like two-ton SUV.

It is not the first time that Royal Enfield has undergone such experiments. In the past, videos of Royal Enfield riders helping an Xcent cab driver and pushing a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R on a highway have surfaced on the internet. All these videos show Royal Enfield successfully pushing the other vehicles.

This video was done as an experiment to show the capabilities of Royal Enfield Classic 350 and we would not recommend doing it in real world conditions. Even if you have to, don’t tow or push any vehicle for too much distance. The pushing or towing puts the engine of the bike under too much stress and there are chances that it will damage the transmission and the Clutch of the bike will also wear off as it is put through lot of pressure in such conditions. In short, if you have to tow a vehicle it is always better to go for a professional help.
