Clas­sic 350 Sig­nals Edi­tion and Hi­malayan ABS

Bike India - - IGNITION -

The new Royal En­field bike, although me­chan­i­cally iden­ti­cal to the cur­rent Clas­sic 350, is in­spired by the In­dian Army Corps of Sig­nals and is the first Royal En­field mo­tor­cy­cle to fea­ture ABS. Royal En­field have had a long-stand­ing as­so­ci­a­tion with the In­dian Armed Forces and this mo­tor­cy­cle cel­e­brates the In­dian Army Corps of Sig­nals, the divi­sion of the Army re­spon­si­ble for mil­i­tary com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

The bikes get the colours of the In­dian na­tional flag on the tank along­side a unique se­rial num­ber sten­cilled in true mil­i­tary fash­ion as well as the em­blem of the In­dian Army Corps of Sig­nals.

Priced at Rs 1.62 lakh (ex-show­room) the Clas­sic 350 Sig­nals Edi­tion gets ABS, a pair of can­vas pan­niers, a tall screen as stan­dard, and blacked-out bits in­stead of chrome. The han­dle­bar, head­lamp bezel, crank­case cov­ers, and ex­haust are all matte black. The dark brown sin­gle seat com­pletes the pe­riod look and goes well with both avail­able colours — Air­borne Blue and Storm­rider Sand.

Along with the Clas­sic 350 Sig­nals Edi­tion, Royal En­field have also launched an ABS ver­sion of their ad­ven­ture mo­tor­cy­cle, the Hi­malayan. The com­pany al­ready had an ABS-equipped Hi­malayan avail­able over­seas. Ow­ing to the new man­date from the govern­ment, which re­quires mo­tor­cy­cles above 125 cc to have ABS as stan­dard, Royal En­field have in­tro­duced ABS in the Hi­malayan. The bike is priced at Rs 1.79 lakh (ex-show­room) and is avail­able at all the deal­er­ships of the com­pany in the coun­try.

Next in the Royal En­field line-up to get ABS will be the Thun­der­bird se­ries.
