The past week was an interesting one for enthusiasts and common folk alike. We saw important two-wheelers like the country’s first BS6 scooter, the Activa 125 and TVS Jupiter 125 with Bluetooth being launched. Oh and now you can buy a more affordable version of Royal Enfield’s bestseller, the Classic 350. Here is the biggest news of last week at a glance.
More Affordable RE Classic 350 launched:
Yes, the Classic 350 is just that. Royal Enfield has lately been offering slightly stripped down and more affordable offerings of their popular models. They launched a more affordable Bullet 350 and now they have launched a more affordable Classic 350 S. The motorcycle gets the same motor and underpinnings as the standard Classic 350 but misses out on chrome trim. It gets blacked-out accents and a single-channel ABS.
