2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350: Engine & Mileage 

The heart of the new RE Classic 350 is the same 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled, fuel-injected, counterbalanced motor as the Meteor 350, replacing the older 346cc Unit Construction Engine (UCE). At 20.2PS at 6100rpm and 27Nm at 4000rpm, the engine produces the same output as its cruiser counterpart. However, the brand claims that it gets its own ignition timing and fuel mapping. All these changes have significant results in better torque delivery, more engine output, and reduce vibrations. The engine continues to be paired to a five-speed transmission.

Royal enfield classic 350 specifications

Underpinned on a new twin downtube spine frame (replacing the older single-cradle frame), the motorcycle retains the 1390mm wheelbase as its previous model. However, at 170mm, the ground clearance on the new Classic 350 has been increased by 35mm. There's also a fatter 41mm telescopic fork at the front (+6mm than earlier) and a pair of twin emulsion shock absorbers with 6-stage preload adjustment at the rear, offering suspension travel of 130mm and 90mm, respectively. Needless to say, these setups have also been borrowed from the Meteor 350. However, they have been tuned with different damping and spring rate for the Classic 350.

While the 2021 Classic 350 retains the wheel sizes (19-inch front and 18-inch at the rear), they now come wrapped in broader 100/90 front and 120/80 rear Ceat Zoom Plus tyres. Anchoring the bike is the same 300mm front and 270mm rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS as the Meteor 350. However, the single-channel ABS trim uses a 53mm drum brake at the rear.

The other specifications are as follows: – 

Height1090 (w/o mirrors)
Width785mm (w/o mirrors)
Seat Height 805mm
Fuel Tank Capacity13 liters  
Kerb Weight195kg

Author's Take 

With the new Classic 350, the Royal Enfield has addressed most of the issues of its predecessor. And thus, it seems a more mature product without negotiating on its old-school design. But all these good things come at a steeper price range that makes it the most expensive motorcycle in its class.
