Royal Enfield has launched a new variant to the Classic 350, Redditch in India. The Classic 350 Redditch is priced at Rs 1.46 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi).
Ahead of 2017, Royal Enfield has introduced the new Redditch Classic 350 and the showrooms across India will begin accepting bookings for the motorcycle from January 7, 2017.
The Classic range of motorcycle from Royal Enfield consists of Squadron Blue, Desert Storm, Battle Green, Chrome, 500 and 350, and now the Redditch has been added to the list.
As per the company, the Classic 350 Redditch has been inspired by the paint schemes of its motorcycles produced in Redditch, United Kingdom, during the 1950s.
The Classic 350 Redditch is offered in Red, Green and Blue colours. The word ‘Redditch' is also synonymous with the birthplace of Royal Enfield motorcycles.
Rudratej Singh, president, Royal Enfield said that apart from the new colours from the 1950's, the 2017 Redditch series will feature the Royal Enfield Redditch monogram, first used in 1939 on the prototype of 125cc ‘Royal Baby', a 2-stroke motorcycle.
He further said that the use of the original Redditch monogram makes the Redditch series more special as it revives Royal Enfield's association with the motorcycles produced out of Redditch in that era.
The company said that ‘in the 1950s Royal Enfield motorcycles were manufactured in its pre-world war era factories in Redditch, a needle making town located fifteen miles south of Birmingham in UK.'
Royal Enfield said that the Classic range of motorcycle which was introduced in 2008 is designed along the lines of J2 and it is a tribute to the retro look of the British motorcycles in the post-World War II era. The Redditch factory though stopped manufacturing motorcycles in 1967.
As for the mechanical updates, the Classic 350 Redditch does not carry any changes and will continue to be powered by the 346cc single cylinder, air cooled engine. The engine produces 19.8bhp and 28Nm of torque and comes paired to the 5-speed gearbox.
