Royal Enfield Offers 2 Classic models in India. Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the lowest priced model at Rs. 1.35 lakh (Ex-Showroom) and Royal Enfield Classic 500 is the highest priced model at Rs. 1.70 lakh (Ex-Showroom). The Classic gave a new lease of life to Royal Enfield after the market began to swamp with modern alternatives. The retro-modern combination of design and engineering made it an instant hit in the market. The Classic is available with a carburetted 350cc engine and a fuel injected 500cc engine. The former churns out 28 Nm of torque while the latter produces a massive 41.3Nm of torque.
54 years to the day the original Bullet rolled out from Redditch, Royal Enfield now has an all-new single cylinder motorcycle. Adil Jal Darukhanawala needed to not just have his eyes checked but also got a reality dose after an extensive test aboard this latest big bore machine.
