Here are our first impressions about the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 fitted with Royal Enfield Genuine Motorcycle Accessories (GMA).
Moreover, the Royal Enfield Genuine Motorcycle Accessories can be now booked online via the company’s ‘Make It Yours’ customisation program platform.
Under the Make It Yours customisation program, Royal Enfield customers can customise their new Royal Enfield motorcycle with company warranted Genuine Motorcycle Accessories.
However, it is worth mentioning that these Royal Enfield Genuine Motorcycle Accessories will be fitted to your new Royal Enfield motorcycle at the dealership level and not from the Royal Enfield factory.
Speaking about accessories, our test-ride Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycle came with 11 new Genuine Motorcycle Accessories.
These 11 Royal Enfield Genuine Motorcycle Accessories include a Silver Aero Visor, a Touring Screen, a set of Black Touring Mirrors, a pair of Silver Deluxe Footpegs, a Silver Octagon Engine Guard, a Silver Sump Guard, A Brown Touring Rider Seat supported by Silver Rider Seat Springs, Brown Touring Passenger Seat, Black Passenger Backrest Mounts, and Brown Passenger Backrest Pad.
Together, these accessories cost an eye-watering Rs 30,150. Though this may seem costly at a glance, all these parts have gone under a strict R&D routine and some of these accessories also come with a 3-year warranty period.
1. Silver Aero Visor
This is a simple accessory, but it completely changes the way the motorcycle looks. Whether you are on the bike or just looking at it, the presence of the Silver Aero Visor gives you the full experience of owning a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
Priced at just Rs 850, it is a bargain for the wonders it can do for your new Royal Enfield Classic 350.
2. Touring Screen
The Touring Screen is a vital accessory on your new Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycle if you frequently go on long rides. The windscreen will protect your body from windblasts and your long rides will be less tiresome. Otherwise, it is just a cluttered instrument console experience on your new Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycle.
Priced at Rs 3.950, it is a great buy and has a sturdy build quality.
3. Black Touring Mirror
Apart from the fact that it looks like a pair of mirrors mounted on a pair of Wi-Fi antennas, the Black Touring Mirrors use forged and machined Aluminium stems to minimise vibrations on the mirror and offer excellent build quality.
Moreover, the mirrors themselves are blacked out to reduce glare during the night. At Rs 6,250, it is the most expensive accessory on our test-ride bike provided by Royal Enfield, but it’s worth every penny you shell out.
Royal Enfield also provides a two-year warranty on the Black Touring Mirror set.
4. Silver Octagon Engine Guard
The Silver Octagon Engine Guard is priced at Rs 3,450, and it is made from a 32mm stainless steel tube for maximum durability. In case of a crash, the Silver Octagon Engine Guard will protect your new Royal Enfield Motorcycle internals well.
Royal Enfield also has other engine guard options starting at Rs 2,900 and goes as high as Rs 4,250 for the Silver Airfly Engine Guard.
The Silver Octagon Engine Guard also comes with a three-year warranty.
5. Silver Sump Guard
The sump guard designed by Royal Enfield for the new Classic 350 is undoubtedly one of the best sump guards I have seen on a motorcycle. Whether you are planning to use your new Classic 350 for long rides or short commutes, Silver Sump Guard will protect your new Royal Enfield Classic 350’s vital parts, and it is priced at just Rs 2,750.
The Silver Sump Guard is made from an anodised and pressed heavy-duty aluminium alloy plate for maximum durability. Apart from this, Royal Enfield has also incorporated mounting brackets with rubber isolation to dampen vibrations.
6. Silver Deluxe Footpegs
This is another accessory that will greatly improve your new Royal Enfield Classic 350’s mile-munching capability. The Silver Deluxe Footpegs offers more real estate to comfortably rest your foot and it vastly reduces the strain on your legs during long rides.
However, if you are a toe-shifter, you may find it difficult to up-shift due to the restricted movement of the foot.
Priced at Rs 2,500, it offers excellent touring ability and Royal Enfield offers a three-year warranty on it.
7. Brown Touring Seat
The Brown Touring Seat provides excellent cushioning over the standard seat, and it is a must-have accessory if you are planning any long trips on your new Royal Enfield Classic 350.
The Brown Touring Seat comes with dual-density foam for added support and 3D new technology to evenly distribute the weight of the rider across the saddle. The Brown Touring Seat is priced at just Rs 3,750.
8. Silver Rider Seat Springs
If you are planning to buy a new Royal Enfield Classis 350 worth Rs 1.93 lakh (ex-showroom), why not spend another Rs 1,150 to add these Silver Rider Seat Springs for the ‘Authentic’ looks.
9. Brown Touring Passenger Seat
This is another touring accessory and we recommend you buy it only if you plan to do your long rides with a partner. Priced at Rs 2,950, it is a great addition if you plan on a trip with a pillion rider.
10. Black Passenger Backrest Mounts & Brown Passenger Backrest Pad
The Black Passenger Backrest Mounts and the Brown passenger Backrest Pad are sold separately, and it is priced at Rs 1,600 and Rs 950, respectively. Together, they cost Rs 2,550.
It is a good decision from Royal Enfield to sell these accessories separately as customers will have the flexibility to buy the well-engineered and sturdy passenger backrest mounts and custom-built a slightly bigger backrest pad for an even more comfortable pillion ride.
However, it is worth mentioning that the Brown Passenger Backrest Pad compliments the overall design nicely.
