– Royal Enfield Classic 350 sells 27,572 units
– 13,751 units were sold in September last year
While the Classic has been Royal Enfield’s best-selling motorcycle for over 350 years, the month of September 2022 has been a very good one for the brand. According to SIAM data, the Chennai-based bike maker sold 27,571 units of the Classic 350 in India last month.
This was a big jump compared to September last year when the company sold only 13,751 units of the bike. It is worth noting that this decline in sales was mainly due to the launch of the new version scheduled for the same month and potential buyers holding back their purchase for it. Month-on-month sales have also grown significantly as RE sold 18,993 units of the Classic 350 in August 2022. While we await the October sales data to come in, we expect dispatches to be even higher this month. Major Indian Festivals
Royal Enfield delivered the Classic 350 with its biggest update in September last year. The latest model is based on the new J platform featuring a 349cc, air/oil-cooled engine that is much more refined than its predecessor. It produces 20.2bhp and 27Nm and is mated to a five-speed gearbox. It rides on a 19-18-inch spoke wheel combination with telescopic forks, dual springs and single discs at both ends. An optional disc-drum braking setup can be opted for.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 price starts at Rs 1.90 lakh and goes up to Rs 2.21 lakh (ex-showroom). It competes with the Java Standard, Honda Hness CB350, and Benelli Imperial.
