The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been spied testing in India again. The motorcycle was seen on the move and we got a glimpse of its front, rear and side. In addition, the spy pictures confirm the changes and provide a clear view of the next-gen Royal Enfield Classic.
Speaking of the cosmetic and mechanical changes of the upcoming Royal Enfield Classic 350, in the last few years, the motorcycle has new colour options. The Classic range received a few big mechanical changes, such as dual-channel ABS and disc brake.
The spy pics show that all-new Royal Enfield Classic 350 gets front and rear disc brakes over the right-hand side despite on the left as in the present model. Due to this change, the chain has shifted from left to right side. The switch will accommodate a drivetrain and revised engine. The engine seems quite identical to the present classic bikes however it will have revised internals. Also, it appears that the next-gen would not have a kick-start option.
Also, it will be interesting to see whether this motorcycle will continue to have 350cc as well as 500 cc engine, however, we still believe that classic bikes will come with similar engine displacements. Additionally, the motorcycle will be seen with new transmission casing. Talking of the upcoming BS6 emission norms, the Enfield Classic is more likely to have a fuel-injected engine which will comply with these norms. The new exhaust system indicates that it can be all-new BS-VI model, working on exhaust setup and reworked engine.
In the Royal Enfield Classic 350 spy shots, we can also see the dual-cradle frame. This frame was also witnessed in the spy pics of next-gen Thunderbird. The frame mounts engine differently and this Classic bike might utilize the rubber mounts to minimize the vibrations.
Coming to the 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 exterior, the bike has dumped the big tail-light as well as a number for the sleek unit. Now, in the upcoming Enfield Classic 350, tail-light might become a LED unit and possess a newer chrome bezel. The redesigned rear seat comes with rounded edges and a grab rail seems raised to make the seat more ergonomic. This test mule also seems to have silver bar-ends and chrome mirrors from the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650.
