Spotted testing yet again, the 2020 all-new Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycle reveals a few more details. In the recent past, Royal Enfield updated their entire motorcycle portfolio with a dual-channel ABS system. The Classic 350 was due for an overhaul for a long time, and this new motorcycle is expected to hit the showrooms sometime in 2020 and a debut is expected at the Rider Mania 2019.

The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 seems to be taking a lot of cues from the Triumph Bonneville. Also since the Classic 350 is sold in markets abroad, taking inspiration from a modern classic model from a rival which has been well appreciated is not really a bad idea. The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is going to be an all-new motorcycle, and not just a cosmetic makeover.

Spyshots reveal that the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 rides on a different chassis. You can notice the new swing arm and the new chassis which is exposed just above the side panels of the bike. The motorcycle is expected to continue with telescopic front forks with covers which make them look like USD forks and rear shock absorbers without any gas charging. Spoked rims continue as well.

In terms of cosmetics, the bike will continue with the dual pilot lamps next to the headlamp, but the headlamp is a clear lets unit now. The instrument cluster is also all-new with a twin-pot layout and the speedo reading our kmph as well as mph since this will be a world motorcycle. The speedo cluster also gets chrome surrounds for a premium touch. The fuel tank, split seats, side panels, rear grab rail, front and rear fenders, tail lamp, mirrors are all new on the 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350.

Powering the new bike will be a BSVI ready 350cc-class engine. While we do not know the exact specifications now, the new bike is expected to get better hardware and engine components which could make the overall motorcycle lighter, and also faster / more torquey than the current model. Most definitely, it will come with fuel-injection. Will a slipper clutch be provided remains to be seen. The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will also get dual-channel ABS.
