- BS6 Royal Enfiled Classic 350 spotted undisguised at a dealership.
- It will have a few upgrades, including new alloys and a new colour option.
- The BS6 Classic 350 price in India is likely to hike by 5 percent.
Royal Enfield has been testing their new engines which do not use the pushrod architecture like the current generation motorcycles. However, it seems that the new architecture engine testing will not be completed by the BS6 deadline. Also, the declining sales of the company are also a concern.
Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the best selling motorcycle and is popular due to its retro looks and thumping engine. The company has started working on making the current engines BS6 compliant and update its paint scheme which will help them gain some of the market shares that they have lost due to the new competition. The bikes that are spied will offer the current engine but will be BS6 compliant.
The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 specs are expected to offer the same power and torque figures as the current generation. The current Classic 350 produces a max power output of 20.07 PS and a peak torque output of 28Nm. The thumping engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. Due to the emission norms, power and torque can be dropped slightly.
Talking about the model that is spied at the dealership, we can see that there are various new paint schemes, seat design with a diamond pattern and a new logo. The engine has been blacked out and the motorcycle also features alloy wheels. 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 price is also expected to increase by around 5% with this update. This might be the last update before the new generation of Royal Enfield motorcycles debuts in the market which will come with a host of new changes.
Royal Enfield will also update their 650 twins which are selling in good numbers and the Himalayan. The 650 twins may get different exhaust tips for a more throaty sound and the Himalayan will get a switchable ABS(Anti-Lock Braking System), hazard light switch, new paint schemes and a new set of MRF Meteor tyres.
The rest of the RE Classic 350 BS6 motorcycle remains the same with a disc brake in the front and at the rear, single-pod instrument cluster without a fuel gauge, a mesh 5-speed gearbox, circular halogen headlamp in the front and a circular stoplight at the rear. For now, the design of the motorcycle is not changed and it continues to stay true to its classic retro design for which the Royal Enfield is famous.
