Despite their dated design, the classic-looking motorcycles have a special flavor which attracts many fans. This is why many contemporary models keep the vintage lines of the old motorcycles. However what lies under the skin is far from being dated as most of them are fitted with modern engines and technologies.
One of these bikes is the 2013 Royal Enfield Classic 350 which is able to keep its head up with dignity against any other motorcycle of its type.
At the heart of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 lies a capable engine borrowed from the Thunderbird Twinspark. Maybe the single cylinder unit won’t impress you with its 19.8 bhp and 28 Nm of torque, but these figures are enough to help you deal effortless with the open road. The engine is combined with a five speed gearbox, especially tuned to maximize the fuel efficiency.
