Summary:

Sigh... Despite this, in its own way, the motorcycle is a definite classic. At the end of the day, the Royal Enfield fans who will eventually buy the new Classic 350, so none of this will even matter.  At least, the Classic 350 is better than the Bullet 350.

Vivek Automobiles, the authorized distributors of Royal Enfield motorcycles in Nepal, has announced the launch of Royal Enfield Classic 350, Gunmetal Grey variant, in Nepal. According to the company, Royal Enfield Classic 350 price in Nepal is Rs. 5,15,000.

Yes, it is a very appealing price tag for a new Royal Enfield. However, that comes with a catch. That offer price is only for a limited time period! According to reports, the offer lasts up to mid-June.

So, don’t wait up and hurry if you want to snatch one for yourself!

Royal Enfield Classic 350: Overview

Royal Enfield 350 is powered by the 346cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. It can produce a max power of 19.8 bhp at 5250rpm and max torque of 28 Nm at 4000rpm, with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The overall engine and performance remain true to its predecessor.

You will get a decent 13.5-liter fuel tank with an expected mileage of 35-40kmpl. Furthermore, you can easily reach a top speed of 110kmph, with vibrations of course.

Royal Enfield Classic 350: New Features

Moreover, it also comes with the new TCI ignition which drastically increases the fuel economy. Furthermore, it gets a new swingarm and a BS-IV engine in a new matt finish.

Finally, Royal Enfield Classic 350 comes with a dual disc for better braking performance. Although, ABS is still absent!

Should You Buy Royal Enfield Classic 350 in Nepal?

Royal Enfield always had a hardcore fan following. Personally, I don’t understand it. However, I do understand a few simple things. RE Classic 350 comes with the epic classical looks, powerful engine, with an iconic brand name. Those three things might be the sell-factor for some.

But… are these enough? Are these equipped with enough features for that high price?

You should remember that Royal Enfield 350 does not come with a fuel gauge. Moreover, you are still stuck with vibrations and high maintenance costs.

KTM Duke, TVS Apache 310, Yamaha R15, or any other brand offers far more features to the riders at this specific price point. And, that’s the frustrating part!

“Well, it comes with an electric start!”

Yes, every commuter segment motorcycle comes with an electric start, and at a quarter of that price. Interestingly, Royal Enfield Classic 350 is considered to be the best selling RE motorcycle of all time. It might have something to do with the electric starter.

Honestly, I don’t hate the RE Classic 350. I just hate this specific variant which got its launch in Nepal.

Why? Royal Enfield Classic 350 is already available with Dual Channel ABS. Yet, they chose to bring the one without any ABS. Why not introduce ABS variant for the price of Rs. 5,15,000? I’m sure that people would jump to grab that opportunity. If that was the case, then, I wouldn’t be so riled up about it.

Anyways, I know that Royal Enfield is an iconic brand. However, being an icon does not automatically give it a right to charge any ridiculous amount of money for a bare minimum.

Sigh… Despite this, in its own way, the motorcycle is a definite classic. At the end of the day, the Royal Enfield fans who will eventually buy the new Classic 350, so none of this will even matter. At least, the Classic 350 is better than the Bullet 350.
