The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition launched in India in August 2018. The motorcycle has been priced at INR 1,61,984 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). It uses the same 346 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, two-valve, 4-stroke engine that powers the rest of the Royal Enfield 350 products. The engine is tuned to deliver 19.8 bhp of maximum power at 5,250 rpm and 28 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm. It comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Rest of the hardware, too, is identical to the Royal Enfield 350s. Thus, the Classic 350 Signals Edition uses a steel tubular single-cradle chassis. Suspension duties are performed by conventional telescopic forks at the front and dual gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. A 280 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm rotor brake at the rear with Dual-channel ABS comes as standard.
As a tribute to the heroes of the Indian Armed Forces, Royal Enfield Classic Signals Edition features tricolour logo with the '49' numerical and a dedicated serial number on the fuel tank. The motorcycle also gets a tan-leather saddle and a matte black finish various parts like the wheels, headlight bezel, engine, taillight, and exhaust. The motorcycle is available in two colour options – Airborne Blue and Stormrider Sand.
