Royal Enfield launched the Classic 350 Signals edition on 28th August in in India at a price of Rs. 1,61,984 (ex showroom Delhi). Dealerships have already started customer deliveries of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals edition in the country. The new bike looks similar to the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 Pegasus, which was launched a few weeks ago as a limited edition model. However, most Pegasus owners are yet to take delivery of their bikes.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition is powered by a 346-cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, two-valve, air cooled engine that churns out 19.8 bhp of maximum power along with a peak torque of 28 Nm. The engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The Classic 350 Signals Edition is the first motorcycle from the RE stable to feature ABS (anti-lock braking system) as standard.
The bike features a 280-mm front disc brake and a 220-mm rear disc brake unit. The Signals Edition pays tribute to the Indian Armed Forces. Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition is available in two colour schemes – Airborne Blue and Storm Rider Sand. The motorcycle gets its colour inspiration from the Indian Army Corps of Signals, which administers military communications. Apart from the paint work, the Signals Edition features a tricolor logo with the ’49’ numerical and dedicated stencilling on the fuel tank.
The bike comes with a single-piece tanned brown leather seat and blacked-out engine components. Other aesthetic changes include the blacked-out headlight bezel, handlebar, wire-spoke wheels, taillight and exhaust. The bike houses its engine and suspension on a steel tubular single-cradle chassis. The bike gets telescopic forks up front and dual gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. The bike comes with a regular 15.1-litre fuel tank and weighs around 184 Kgs. A range of official accessories are available at Royal Enfield dealerships.
