Royal Enfield has been working on several new motorcycles and Classic 350 is one of them. The all-new Classic 350 motorcycles was spotted testing several times and we have reported the same on our website too. Now, undisguised images of the upcoming Royal Enfield Classic 350 motorcycle has leak on the internet before its official launch. The newly leaked images show all the changes in the 2021 version of the upcoming Classic 350 motorcycle.
The new images of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been shared by Gaadiwaadi on their YouTube channel. In terms of design, Royal Enfield has tried to retain the retro look of the motorcycle while adding more modern features. The first image shows a single seater version of Classic 350. The motorcycle retains round headlamp with chrome around it. The steel rims, turn indicators, fuel tank design looks same as before. There are new graphics on the fuel tank and side panels.
The front and rear suspension are also the same as before. The main difference on this Classic 350 is the handle bar and the instrument cluster. The handle bar looks slightly revised to give an upright riding position. The instrument cluster is also revised. We have seen spy pictures of the instrument cluster in the past. Royal Enfield will be offering an analog speedometer with digital display for fuel, trip and km readings. Like Meteor 350 and update Himalayan, Royal Enfield will offer the Tripper navigation display with 2021 Classic 350 as well.
The switches and buttons on the handle bar will also be updated. It will get rotary switches for self start and headlamps. This is similar to what we have seen in Meteor 350 that was launched in the market last year. Looking at the images, it looks like Royal Enfield will be offering Classic 350 in two version. There will be a single seat version and a split seat version. The split seat version seen here in the article gets blacked out elements which gives it a sporty look. the graphics on the tank are also different from the single seater version. Another thing that must be noted here is the brakes. Royal Enfield will be offering a version with disc brakes at front and rear and there will be a version with drum brakes at rear. dual disc variants will be getting dual channel ABS whereas the single disc variant will get single channel ABS.
The position of the disc has also moved from left side of the front wheel to right. The upcoming RE Classic 350 is based on RE’s J platform which saw in Meteor 350. This will completely improve the ride and handling of this motorcycle. The engine is expected to the revised 350-cc unit from Meteor. The engine is lot more refined and generated less vibration even at higher speeds. The engine will be mated to a 5-speed gearbox and will generates 20 Ps and 27 Nm of peak torque. Looking at the images, it looks like the Royal Enfield is done with the testing phase of the new motorcycle and the 2021 RE Classic 350 is expected to be launched in the market in coming weeks.
