The all-new 2022 Royal Enfield Classic 350 defiantly follows the same methodology to success. It’s fun to ride, cheap to buy and is arguably the most authentic-looking nostalgic model available – oh, and did I mention it was fun to ride? Perhaps I’m just getting older, but the look of the Classic just blows my hair back; it looks fantastic, and the finish is exceptional for the dollars. But it’s a 350, so what the hell is it for?

The 2022 Royal Enfield Classic 350 we told you about back in September is confirmed as a US model. The vertical-single motor, peashooter muffler, twin shocks, solo seat, valanced headlight, and solo seat give the motorcycle an undeniably retro feel, even as it delivers modern accouterments such as EFI and ABS-assisted disc brakes. The 2022 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the second modern 350 from Royal Enfield, with the Meteor debuting last year.

“Throughout our history, we have been consistent in our pursuit to build timeless, beautiful motorcycles that are great fun to ride,” Managing Director of Eicher Motors Ltd. Siddhartha Lal notes, “and the new Classic 350 does just that. The all-new Classic 350 combines this quintessential, retro design with a modern and refined ride experience. We are confident that the all-new Classic 350 will once again redefine the midsize motorcycle space, globally.”

The initial shipment arriving in the United States is comprised of the mid-priced Dark and Signals lines. The Indian-military-inspired Signals line stands out thanks to period-appropriate wire-spoked wheels, while other Classic 350s have 10-spoke aluminum wheels.
