Due to the mandate introduced by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways earlier, bike manufacturers in India have started to introduce ABS or CBS to make sure that a certain standard of safety is maintained in the country. Royal Enfield has followed suit in that respect, wherein the bike manufacturer has been introducing ABS in its motorcycle range in India. Royal Enfield has also introduced a dual-channel ABS system for the Classic 350 Redditch. The ABS-equipped Classic 350 Redditch has a reasonable price hike of Rs 6000, which takes the cost up from Rs 1.47 lakh to 1.52 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Royal Enfield introduced its popular Classic 350 motorcycle in three Redditch series variants - Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue. These variants are inspired by the paint schemes on 50s-era Royal Enfield motorcycles that were produced in Redditch, UK - the birthplace of Royal Enfield motorcycles.
In the 1950’s, 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 the UK. The Royal Enfield Classic introduced in 2008 is designed on the lines of the J2 and it is a tribute to the retro look of British motorcycles in the post-World War II era. The Classic retains the quintessential classic British styling of the 1950s; simple, harmonious, proportioned and finished.
Powered by Royal Enfield’s 350cc unit construction engine (UCE), front & rear mudguards, the headlight casing, the fuel tank, the oval toolbox, the exhaust fins, the speedometer dials, the single-seat spring saddle, tail light assembly and the headlamp cap, all these conform to the native imagery of British motorcycles in the aftermath of World War II. Although the Redditch plant stopped producing motorcycles in 1967, its effect on the look and feel of a Royal Enfield motorcycle is still distinct even today.
