Cons of Classic 350:-

  • Heavyweight: Royal Enfield classic 350 weighs 192 kg and a full metal body makes this motorcycle lot heavier than compare to other series of bikes.
  • High Price: Basically a Bullet 350 with different design and added features, RE Classic 350 commands a price tag of INR 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The addition of disc brake and electric start, along with MRF tyres makes it expensive for sure but the gap is of around INR 20,000 in comparison to the Bullet 350. Royal Enfield should have provided a lower price tag as many buyers skip the same because the on-road price in most of the cities crosses INR 1.70 lakh. The Signals ABS version can be had for INR 1.62 lakh (ex-showroom).
  • No Fuel Gauge: Well, royal feel is a different thing but a fuel gauge could have been a better edition on the RE Classic 350. What if someone takes your bike for a ride and unfortunately switches the fuel knob to reserve due to some reason? You won’t even know when your bike gets out of fuel as there would be no indication of anything before the unfortunate halt.
  • Engine noise: Royal Enfield should work over the refinement issues faced by thousands of fans in terms of engine noise, harsh vibrations and false neutrals. Although RE machines are made to stay longer, not every user actually knows how to go through such a phase when you spend INR 1.70 lakh (on-road) and still are not satisfied with the noise of the engine when idle.
