The Classic 350 now gets fuel injection for emission compliance, which replaces the carburettor of the BS4 version. The Chennai-based brand has not shared the exact power and torque figures but has said that the new motorcycles will be refined, more driveable and are tuned to offer better performance.
The new Classic 350s now ditch dual spark tech and Royal Enfield has opted to plonk only a single spark plug to ignite fuel inside the cylinder.
As a part of the package are two new colours – Stealth Black and Chrome Black. The older variants Gunmetal Grey, Signals and Classic Black are carried over. Some colours will come equipped with standard alloy wheels and tubeless tyres.
