Royal Enfield Classic 350 Design- Classic But Modern
You will surely wonder if it was an easy job to design such an elegant vehicle. From whatever angle or how much ever distance you look at it, it looks classic but at the same time, looks upgraded with a modern look! That is because of the rounded off grips, the retro-styled switchgear, updated instrumentation, better fit and finish that we saw in Meteor-350. A closer look would reveal new headlamp nacelle. There is still the twin pilot lamps and the round headlamp like the outgoing model, but a bit different.
To not have LED lighting or even a DRL can be considered as a lower side factor. The indicators come from the Meteor and are feature bulbs. Upon the nacelle, the brand-new instrument panel is placed. It features the analogue speedo with tell tale lights below. Below that, is a digital readout which displays fuel level, twin trips and a clock! The Classic 350 also has a fuel gauge. There is another digital pod on the right side which has the Tripper Navigation system. The gauge blends into the design and adds to the elegance of the Classic 350 to make it a bike of the modern age. Another major change is the ignition lock. The old fork mounted lock is replaced by the ignition key operated lock. The handle bar has a switchgear which comes from the Meteor. The fragile chrome mirrors may get loose over time. The fuel tank has been redesigned to the chrome version. You can also note the new retro style logo and the knee pads. The quality of the chrome and the paint job is first class. The fuel tank capacity has come down by half a litre to 13 litres. The seats have been redone and there are no springs. Two side boxes on both sides are present. One of them has a little storage space for your documents! The rear end has a new tail light cluster on which all lights are feature bulbs and not LEDs.
