What is Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch all about?
Redditch was where the original factory for RE was built. It was born as a British company and this is where the bike production started. So, the bike has got the name from there.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch Colours on offer?
When Royal Enfield was manufactured in Redditch, it was made available with three colour options: Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue. It is only the fuel tank that is in this colour, the rest of the body is black. The seat is also black in colour, with a white piping on it.
What does the company have to say?
Commenting on the launch, Mr Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield said, “Royal Enfield launched the Classic in 2008 based on its popular ‘J2’ model, as our brand has always taken inspiration from its rich heritage to come up with evocative motorcycles in the modern era. The Classic then became one of the most loved motorcycles from Royal Enfield. Looking back into our decades old legacy, we have given Classic a makeover taking cues from the motorcycles produced at Redditch, Royal Enfield’s birthplace UK. In 2017, we are bringing the Classic 350 in – Redditch Red, Redditch Green and Redditch Blue that re-imagine shades on our 1950’s motorcycles that first came out of Royal Enfield plant in Redditch, a town steeped in British motorcycle build tradition. The introduction of the Redditch series on Classic 350 is a reinforcement of the Classic franchise and its huge success across all our markets.”
He further added to that, “Apart from the new colours from the 1950s, the 2017 Redditch series will feature the Royal Enfield Redditch monogram, first used in 1939 on the prototype of 125cc ‘Royal Baby’, a two-stroke motorcycle. The use of the original Redditch monogram makes the Redditch series more special as it revives our association with the motorcycles produced out of Redditch in that era.”
Does Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch have any engine changes?
None. The RE Classic 350’s 346cc engine continues to power the Redditch version as well. In terms of power, it has 19.8bhp and 28Nm of peak torque. This is more than sufficient. The changes on the bike are purely cosmetic and no other changes on the powertrain or even the underpinnings have been made.
