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.

With Experience in riding both the bikes over 100s of kms at a strech, my views are:RE350 is more powerful than Avenger, so top speed is more for 350, which is useful when you have to travel long dist ances. But RE350 has lot of vibrations especially over 80kmph. Suspension of RE350 is better than Avenger.Riding position of Avenger feels more relaxed than RE350.RE350 has more weight. Feels more safe while riding but difficult to handle while stopped. Maintenance cost of Avenger is less.Avenger is more economical but endurance of RE350 is legendary. ...read more
