The top-selling model of RE now comes with dual-channel ABS to comply with the government mandated rules.
RE has launched the ABS version of the Classic 350, which is now priced at Rs. 1.53 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi), making it costlier by Rs. 5800/- than the non-ABS equipped version. RE had started updating its line-up from the Classic 350 Signals version in August last year. The Classic series now comes equipped with dual-channel ABS to improve the braking efficiency of the bike.
Apart from the updated brake set-up, there are no evident mechanical changes done to the thumper. It still comes powered by the same 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that churns out 19.8 BHP at 5250 RPM and 28 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM. The engine comes mated to a standard 5-speed gearbox. The Classic 350 ABS uses a 280 mm disc brake up front and a 240 mm disc at the rear, with the bike featuring telescopic forks up front and twin shock absorbers at the rear.
The bike still competes with the Jawa Forty Two, which features a single-channel ABS unit and the Bajaj Dominar that comes with a dual-channel ABS unit.
