As per a report by Autocar, both the motorcycles are powered by a 280cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces a peak torque of 25 Nm. The four-valve engine in combination with the six-speed transmission produces peak power of 24.8 hp when it hits 8500 rpm, while achieving its peak torque at 7000 rpm. This places the Classic and the Mojave slightly above its Royal Enfield counterparts in terms of price.

While both motorcycles fall under the cruiser territory, the Classic gets a more regular design with an abundant use of chrome, making it an attractive premium-looking motorcycle at its price point. The Mojave gets a more subdued, matte finish as it borrows its name from the Mojave Desert in California. The Mojave also comes with the option of adding a left-side saddlebag and a larger leg guard.
