Royal Enfield has today launched the Classic 350 Signals Edition in India, priced at INR 1,61,984 lakh (ex-showroom Pune). The Royal Enfield Classic Signals Edition pays tribute to the heroes of the Indian Armed Forces, who used these bikes on special operations.
Unlike the Classic Pegasus Edition that took the flash-sale route, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition will be available throughout, for enthusiasts. It is the first Royal Enfield motorcycle in India to feature ABS. The bike is available for bookings from today at an amount of INR 5,000, and potential consumers can book the bike at Royal Enfield dealerships across the country. The Classic Signals Edition is available in two colour options - Storm Rider Sand and Airborne Blue.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition is inspired from the Indian Army Corps of Signals, which oversees military communications.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition features a tricolour logo with the '49' numerical and a dedicated serial number on the fuel tank. The motorcycle receives a single-piece tanned brown leather seat, while it features matte black finish to the wheels, headlight bezel, engine, taillight, and exhaust. The Signals Edition is the latest addition to the Classic 350 range, which also includes the Redditch Edition & Gunmetal Grey paint scheme.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition sources power from a 346 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, two-valve, 4-stroke engine that generates 19.8 bhp of maximum power at 5,250 rpm while pumping out a peak torque of 28 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The motor works with a 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle has a fuel tank capacity of 12.7 litres while it tips the weighing scales at 184 kg (kerb).
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals Edition gets a steel tubular single-cradle chassis that holds the engine as the stressed member. Telescopic front forks and dual gas-charged shock absorbers take care of suspension duties on the motorcycle. The bike gets its stopping power from a 280 mm disc at the front and a 220 mm rotor brake at the back, with standard dual-channel ABS.
