Royal Enfield Classic 500 has been updated with ABS (anti-lock braking system) and latest reports suggest that deliveries of the new Classic 500 have begun. The price of the Classic 500 ABS starts at Rs 2.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai), which is Rs 20,000-30,000 above the standard version based on the choice of colour. According to a CarAndBike report, the ABS version is available in the Stealth Black and Desert Storm colour options and others will also be available with ABS eventually. Also, Royal Enfield recently launched the Classic Signals 350 edition, which is a tribute to the Indian armed forces and the first RE bike to get ABS.

Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals is equipped with a dual-channel ABS, which is now also available with the Classic 500, along with the Royal Enfield Himalayan. ABS had long been awaited in Royal Enfield motorcycles and now nearly all of its lineup is updated.

Royal Enfield Classic 350 Signals is priced at Rs 1.62 lakh (ex-showroom, Pune). The new special edition is inspired from the Indian Armed Forces and also marks the brand’s 65-year-old association with the Indian Armed Forces.
