Royal Enfield Classic 350 S Vs Classic 350 Differences: Photo Gallery
Here’s a closer look at the differences between the two variants in detailed images
To make Royal Enfield’s best-selling Classic 350 range more affordable, the Chennai-based bikemaker has launched the Classic 350 S at Rs 1.45 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This makes the bike Rs 8,000 more affordable than the standard model. Apart from the inclusion of a single-channel ABS, the S variant is mechanically the same bike as the standard Classic but gets a number of cosmetic changes. Here’s what they’re all about:
Both variants get the same body panels, but the Classic 350 S gets a much darker theme with blacked-out elements.
Both bikes share the same 346cc single-cylinder engine which churns out 20PS and 28Nm. However, in the Classic 350 S, the powertrain is completely blacked out like how it is in the Thunderbird range. That said, the steel exhaust has been let untouched. The S variant also makes do with a single horn setup as opposed to the standard model's twin horns.
Unlike the regular Classic 350 which gets a disc brake at the rear with dual-channel ABS, the Classic 350 S makes do with a drum at the rear and single-channel ABS to keep costs in check.
The Classic 350 S gets a relatively simpler logo compared to the standard model. It also misses out on the tank pads.
The S variant comes with a blacked-out spoke rim whereas the standard model gets steel spoke rims. The blacked-out one looks a lot sportier in our opinion.
Both front and rear indicator casings are finished in black instead of chrome in the standard model.
