Royal Enfield has introduced a rear disc brake for the Classic 350 Redditch edition motorcycles. This feature was so far available only in the Gunmetal Grey variant.

 

The rear disc brake on the Redditch edition is a 240mm unit with a single-pot calliper. It is similar to the one used in the Classic 350 Gunmetal Grey and the Classic 500 models. There is no other change in the bike, and it continues to be powered by the 349cc air-cooled single-cylinder carburetted engine. This engine delivers 19.8bhp and 28Nm of torque through a five-speed transmission.  The Redditch edition is available in three trendy colours – red, green and blue. 

 

With the introduction of the rear disc brake, the motorcycle now costs Rs 1.47 lakhs (Ex-showroom). This makes the Redditch edition Rs 8,155 pricier than the standard Classic 350. As of now, there is no sign of ABS being offered in any of the Royal Enfield models, although dealers claim that it should be available by next year.
