Royal Enfield Classic 350 launched

Royal Enfield Classic 350

Royal Enfield has finally got some impetus with a strong dealer network and interesting learner-approved models arriving, including the Classic 350.

The dual-seat bike will be available in early 2016 at just $4990 (plus on-road costs) in white, blue or black with a two-year, unlimited kilometre warranty on parts and 10,000km and one-year warranty on labour.

With its classic looks, it should become a darling of the young hipster set, as well as a great second bike for more mature-aged riders.Royal Enfield Classic 350

It should also appeal to the many world travellers who have toured with companies such as Ferris Wheels Motorcycle Safaris (known as World on Wheels from January 2016).

They will be familiar with and have a certain affection and admiration for these tough little Indian-made bikes.

It’s based on the Classic 500 chassis and is powered by a lower-capacity bulletproof Thunderbird Twinspark with carburettion by Keihin.

Things are looking good for Royal Enfield in Australia with a 650cc Himalayan adventure bike coming and the brand in the hands of established importer.

Royal Enfield has been in a blind spot in Australia for may years but is now being imported and distributed by Melbourne-based Urban Moto Imports who also import MV Agusta, Benelli, Bimota, Confederate and Viper Motorcycles with a dealer network across Australia and New Zealand.

Urban Moto Imports CEP Joseph Elasmar says Royal Enfield has “a phenomenal future”.

Meanwhile, Royal Enfield is spending $80m to build two new factories, one in India and the other in the UK, bringing the former British brand back to its home country for the first time in 45 years.


  1. I like enfields but this appears to be an under bored 500 ,Why bother?
    just buy a 500 and don’t use full throttle.
    And why the difference in price? the 350 should probably be the dearer
    of the two [smaller bore = more metal]

  2. Love the Enfields.

    My first bike was a 1957 350 single. If I had to downsize, then an Enfield would be in the top three.

    Great to see them making a strong comeback.
