About Royal Enfield Classic 350 (2012-2021)

The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the brand’s most popular and best selling bike in India. It has a retro design and comes in a variety of colours and editions to make it appealing to the younger audience. Given its retro positioning, the Classic 350 does not get as many features as a similar capacity street naked. It gets a single-pod analogue instrument console that includes a speedometer, odometer and low fuel warning lamp. This is a heavy bike weighing at 192kg (kerb) and given its touring nature, fuel tank capacity is a disappointing 13.5-litres. However, the upright riding position and a comfortable spring-loaded single seat is comfy for touring on the highways. The Classic 350 continues to be powered by a 346cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which churns out 20PS at 5250rpm and 28Nm at 4000rpm. A 5-speed gearbox transmits power to the rear wheel via a chain drive. Suspension bits include a telescopic fork up front and a twin gas-charged shock absorber at the rear. The bike gets 19-inch front and 18-inch rear spoked wheels fitted with tubed MRF tyres. Braking is via a single 280mm front and 240mm rear disc with dual channel ABS as standard fitment. The Classic 350 competes with the Jawa, which looks more retro but has a modern and more powerful liquid-cooled 300cc motor. The next generation Royal Enfield Classic 350 has also been spotted testing in India. It is expected to get a new BS6 compliant motor and a new frame. It’s likely to be launched in India by early 2020.

    Shoulder pain

    I'm 6ft1in tall. I previously own a Royal Enfield Classic 350. And let me share my experience.I'm one of the several people who fell for the looks of the motorcycle, who fell for its connect with the person who rides (possibly due to the vibrations), who fell for its low end torque, who fell for its sound.Initially it will attract you a lot and it will make you feel like a King of the Road. As you are on love with the bike, you will love its pros and love even more for its cons!Now coming to the performance it is a lazy elephant which took almost 16seconds to reach 100Kph, with a ton of vibrations. But you will love it during short rides and can't cope with after 30minutes. Because after riding over 100Kph over 30minutes, your hands will be numb and your whole body vibrates. And to come over this feeling, you need a healthy 30minutes of break. So riding under 80Kph helps but not much by a significant margin.So, let's talk about the comfort, with the stock handlebar, I've had a lot of lower back pain. With RD350 handlebar, Classic's perch is better for atleast 30 minutes if ridden sanely under 80KPH. After that, I've sharp pain in my knees due to constant vibrations from footpegs no matter the RPM you choose to ride. If ridden above 80Kph, two more pains will shoot: one from my shoulders and other from my b**t due to the vibrations it has on offer.Talking about mileage, it will provide me 33Kpl if ridden over 100Kph, 38Kpl if ridden at 80Kph, 44Kpl if ridden under 60Kph.Throttle response is lazier due to carburettor, now it is much better due to the addition of FI. Brakes are poor, front disc is less bitey and rear drun brakes are wooden (now even comes with rear disc, but still feels wooden). Ride quality is good. Tube tyres are a problem. (Tubeless is on offer today)And coming to the maintenance part, it digs a hole in your pocket during paid service. Free service costs a maximum of INR.1500. But paid service cost minimum is INR.2500. And at 24000kms, a paid service costed me around INR.10,000. People at Royal Enfield Service Centre never repairs but just replaces. It may be due to the Sub-par quality of the spare parts. So, on even years (after first year with free services) you need to allocate around INR.6000 for servicing it. And on odd years, you must pay INR.8000-10,000 for servicing. In 3years of ownership, I've spent around INR.25,000 for services alone.I've used it for 3years and ridden it for 30thousand Kilometers and finally have sold it due to heavy vibrations which causes me consistent right shoulder pain and also high maintenance it demands over years.Finally the resale value is good.Conclusion: It is pointless to buy 350cc machines from Royal Enfield today. Better opt for their 411cc or 650cc machines. If you want to buy a 350 from Enfield, wait for their J platform launch. Thank god, they bid adeu for their 500cc UCE engines. Don't commit the mistake I've once committed.Still in August 2020, this Classic 350 is their best seller. Royal Enfield doesn't want to let their milching cow, that's why they are gonna introduce the new J platform engines in their lower selling model, Thunderbird. People must change!!! For those who are in a hurry to buy a Classic or Bullet 350, Wait till J platform's lauch.

  • Good Performance

    I have been using his bike since Feb 2018, It's too much to describe how a Royal Enfield looks and about its presence on the road as it is every biker's dream thing. Even though, I would dare to do it. The overall look is like a tiger if you view it from any angle very sturdy strong appearance, Before I started to drive this beast, Thoughts of me are like how can I tame this? But after I kicked the engine to start its thump and vibrations are so awesome. I always ride this at a nominal speed and observed if we go beyond 55 to 60 mph it gives you a sublimation point at which you can feel the floating ride on the road. Even bumps are also not felt due to suspension on forks and under the driver seat. About mileage, the body says it has high quench for petrol but it depends on the rider's behavior and the roads. As per my riding habits with regular servecing proper air pressure in the tires I got about 35 to 42 per liter of petrol, Which may cost you about 3 to 4 rupees per km, and a 200 kg beast naturally may have such a thirst to pull the riders of average weight 55 to 110 kgs along with its weight and some of the accessories. Regarding accessories, I would recommend Royal Enfield steel Gard for avoiding any damage to your tank and engine and also for yourself in case of accidents.It has a best ride abilities for long trips. One must be fit if you want to go for longer rides over 300 km as I'm not soo a fitness guy I rode this for about 340 km at a stretch with some fatigue. So it must be planned. Many don't hesitate about the accessories they add to this bike but I love to keep this as it is except for a guard at engine.No modifications. The only negative aspect for me is the mirrors these are too weak even if the bike falls off the first and last thing you lose is your mirror. So I suggest going for a good handlebar mirror instead of regular ones if you are dropping your bike. Enfield is now coming out from old classic models to modern models. Once you ride an Enfield you will never get the feeling even if you ride a BMW both are of different forms.

    Fuel ejection

    One of the best affortable cruiser in india, Its an easy go enjoyable cruiser and good for its price with a good comfortable ride with its ergonomics best things about the bike is definitely its comfort which it is supposed to give as it vehicle category being a cruiser, The absence of a fuel meter is a thing however retro they classify it to be being its one of the drawback for a low end torque bike its not bad and its ability to pull is good given the terrain, Being a classic owner if you were to just open throttle and fly when you would be disappointed as this doesn't allow that but given its power to its lower 3 short gear transitions that will not disappoint you with commuting toogetting to build quality is another factor for a post war engine the company has only changed few parts from its roots to adjust with the government norms, However there are problems if you don't take care of cleaning as a thing you are supposed to do in this bikeof course the vibration has really went down from its previous generation bike as the engine is more refined now with the fuel ejection as well as power a notch turned down to align with the new emission normsone of the new feature is the low fuel indicator which had to be installed because there is no fuel meter or carburetor, The spoke rims are cool and more practical too to begin with.Being one of the hefty priced biggest motorcycle production company in the whole india and with native production units too they should turn the price.Another main factor which they should really consider is to have are service canters which should be loyal to its customers, The costumers are the one thing that keeps the company running so just not rob them because to so many the bullet isn't just a bike its an emotion for them that, A sense of love to the ride, For retro, For simplicity, For the love of riding and loving the bike like a part of part themselves.
