Well, Royal Enfield is turning all modern. The modernization started with the Thunderbird in 2017, when it got All-time on headlamps. digital meter, LED tail lights and wet multi-plate clutch. Now, it takes one step ahead in the safety department. The Royal Enfield Classic Signals 350 ABS has launched recently in tribute to RE’s relationship with the Indian armed forces and Indian Air Force for the past 65 years. Also, this was the first bike to get a dual-channel ABS in RE’s lineup. After that, Himalayan and the Classic 500 also got ABS variants. RE has announced that all of its bikes will have ABS before February 2019. Now, here we have a video of the Classic Signals 350 ABS in action. A Mumbai Youtuber, Bullet Singh Boisar has tried out how the ABS system of Signals work and is it that strong.
This Youtuber has taken the Storm Rider Sand edition for the test. If you see, it gets a distinctive stenciled number for each bike, a refreshed ‘RE’ logo, a standard single tan seat, blacked out body parts and most importantly, a fuel indicator and ABS indicator. Earlier, the people had to literally look inside the tank to check the fuel. The blacked out body parts include a silencer, engine and the spoke wheels.
As you can see, the rider takes the Classic Signals 350 ABS up to a speed of 60 km/hr and brakes very hard. Then, if you see, the bike does not skid at all and the rider also seems to maintain the balance. He has tried it 3-4 times more, just to make it sure. The braking is done on the loose muddy surface, which is very prone to bike skids. We recommend you to not try these techniques without a helmet and proper riding experience.

The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox with wet multi-plate clutch. Now with ABS, it also gets front and rear disc brakes. ABS helps in preventing the locking of brakes during an emergency.
