Royal Enfield motorcycles come with that characteristic roaring exhaust note that people have come to appreciate since time immemorial.
This video is a great vibration test for the old RE Classic 350 and the new model. Now, people opt for the Classic 350 for that exact loud and thunderous exhaust note and high vibration. However, with time, some owners find it too difficult to tolerate over a long period of time. Realising this, Royal Enfield has toned it down a bit for its newer models but it is still there enough to not lose that iconic roar that people come to associate with Bullets.

RE Classic 350 Vibration Test
The YouTuber parks the two models side by side for the test. Also, he puts 3 glasses of liquid at the same position on each bike. This includes on the fuel tank, on the rider seat and on the pillion seat. In the first attempt, his friend starts the new RE Classic and gives a throttle to it. To ensure that this is a fair test, he keeps pressing the accelerator lever for a long time. However, the glasses feel the vibration but maintain the same place and don’t move. This is a huge testament to the refinement that RE has been able to achieve.

Then they move to the old model and perform the same test. In this case, the glasses on the fuel tank and pillion seat fell almost instantly. They didn’t have to accelerate too hard. Also, the glass on the rider’s seat moves around but didn’t fall. This represents the kind of vibration that the old model of the Classic 350 came with. This is what the RE owners wanted but it could be a pain on long journeys too. Hence, in the newer versions, it is reduced a little.
