Royal Enfield Classic 350 Price Hiked Yet Again
With a considerable increment this time around, the bike has become a little too expensive for what it offers
Just a little over a month after hiking the prices of its popular Classic 350 range, Royal Enfield has increased it even further. Take a look at the Royal Enfield Classic 350’s latest ex-showroom Delhi price list for all the variants:
The only colour variants that haven’t witnessed a hike are the dual-channel ABS-equipped versions of Pure Black and Mercury Silver. Looks like Royal Enfield wanted to keep the prices of the entry-level dual-channel ABS-equipped Classic unchanged to attract more buyers.
That said, the most expensive colour variants, Stealth Black and Chrome Black, cost just a little over Rs 1,000 less than the top-end Royal Enfield Meteor 350 Supernova variant. That’s a bit odd as the Meteor is a much better overall proposition than the Classic in several ways. So, if you are a Royal Enfield enthusiast who isn’t all that keen on classic-styled bikes, the Meteor 350 makes a lot of sense in that price bracket. Retro fans could also opt for the Honda H’Ness CB350, priced at Rs 1,92,500 for the DLX Pro variant. It’s a lot more refined than the Classic 350 and you can read about how it feels to ride in the real world here. You can also check out our review of the Classic 350 here.
If you’re a touring fan and feel the Classic won’t cut it in that price bracket, you can go for the Bajaj Dominar 400, retailing at Rs 1,99,755 (ex-showroom). It can easily sustain triple-digit speeds on the highway, and it offers lot more features than the Classic for a premium of a little over Rs 7,000.
