Royal Enfield until now, offered rear disc brakes only on the Gunmetal grey model in the Classic 350 lineup. However, the company still has not introduced the ABS on any of its motorcycles in India.

The Indian government has made it mandatory for two-wheeler manufacturers to add ABS by April 2019. Hence, we might see Royal Enfield introduce the Anti-Lock Braking System sometime in the future.

The company apart from the addition of the rear disc has also changed the rear swingarm of the motorcycle. This is to make space for the addition of the rear discs. The rear wheel now uses a 240mm disc at the back. The front wheels, however, get the standard 280mm disc.

The addition of the rear disc has increased the price of the Redditch Classic 350 model by Rs 8,000. This is a small increase in price, for the improved braking performance the motorcycle now offers.
