It’s no secret that Royal Enfield is planning to upgrade its modern-classic range of motorcycles in the Indian market. The brand’s bread and butter, the Royal Enfield Classic 350, has been completely overhauled and spied in the past. But this time, images of a near-production-ready RE Classic 350 have emerged on the internet. The pictures of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 reveal a few more details about the motorcycle. This also leads us to believe that the bike’s debut is just around the corner.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 – Design Highlights
According to the spy shots, the Classic 350 will come with an evolutionary design of the current motorcycle. The motorcycle will continue to get the large teardrop tank, triangular side boxes, and large front and rear fenders. The bike also gets the same headlamp housing with twin marker lamps and a rounded headlamp in true Classic 350 fashion. The headlamp also gets a chrome bezel and hood, along with fork covers. The taillamp is completely new and comes with a rounded taillight.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 – Colour & Equipment
The spied motorcycle also reveals that Royal Enfield will bring new colour options. The brand will also employ new graphics on the motorcycle. Going into the finer details, the Classic 350 comes with a new analogue-digital instruments cluster. Previously, we saw the instruments cluster with Royal Enfield’s Tripper navigation pod, where the Ampmeter resides on the current model. But the recent spy shots show an RE badge instead of the Tripper Navigation. This leads us to believe that the Tripper Navigation system is not standard but optional.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 – Technical Specifications
Powering the Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be the J-series 350cc single-cylinder long-stroke air-oil-cooled engine. The engine makes 20.2 Bhp of power and 27 Nm of torque on the Meteor 350. The engine comes with a 5-speed gearbox and replaces the old pushrod valve distribution system with an overhead chain cam system. The brand will also use a new twin downtube spine chassis and uprated suspension and brakes that offer more stability.
