The Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch Edition has recently received a new feature in the form of a rear disc brake. Selected dealers in Delhi/NCR have started accepting bookings for the motorcycle at a token amount of Rs 5,000. Our dealer sources have confirmed the price of the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch edition with rear disc at Rs 1.47 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). That said, the new model demands around Rs 8,000 more than the standard model. The Redditch edition is the second model in the Royal Enfield 350cc line up to get a rear disc brake after the Gunmetal Grey edition. There are no other mechanical changes in the new model. Powering the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 Redditch Edition is the same 346cc, air-cooled, single cylinder engine mated to a five-speed transmission.
