Royal Enfield Classic 350 entered the new generation last year. It was introduced in a completely new avatar that used the modern underpinnings from the Meteor 350 motorcycle. The bike was only introduced in the Indian market back then, but now the company has also launched the model in the market of the United Kingdom at GBP 4439 (approx. 4.46 lakh) there.

Apart from the new platform it also uses a new and revised 349cc, single-cylinder engine from the Meteor. This engine has been rated to develop 20.2bhp and 27Nm.
