Like other two wheeler manufacturers in the country, Royal Enfield is also working on its next-generation BS6 motorcycles. The bikes have been spotted testing on our roads many times and they are likely to launch these models later this year. Here we have a video today that shows what all changes will be there in the updated BS6 variant of a Royal Enfield motorcycle. The video has been uploaded by Bullet Guru on their Youtube channel that takes a closer look at the upcoming BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 in the video is a gunmetal grey BS6 variant. The bike looks very similar to the Classic 350 currently on sale in India. The changes however lie in the engine. The video then focuses on the changes that makes it different from the BS4 variant. The BS6 variant in the video has several new components added to make it compliant with the upcoming BS6 emission norms.
First component is that one would notice is the Electronic Fuel Injection or EFI. The cover to the same is visible right below the fuel tank. It is similar to the one found in Interceptor 650. EFI systems usually allows much tighter control of the exhaust’s air-fuel ratio, and thus substantially enhance the operational efficiency of the catalytic converters.
Next visible change is the addition of carbon control sensor on the bend pipe and the addition of an extra filter is also seen here. The addition of extra filter will be a big disappointment for many Royal Enfield lovers as it will reduce the iconic thump sound from the exhaust for which Royal Enfields are known for.
Other change that is seen in the bike is the wheels. It now gets an alloy wheel instead of conventional spoke set up. The black couloured alloys look great on the motorcycle. Switching to alloy wheels from spoke also means that the bike now gets tubeless tyres which will add to the convenience of the rider.
Royal Enfield will be launching the BS6 variants of their motorcycle later this year and is expected to be priced higher than that of BS4 variants. The Classic 350 will still be powered by the same 346-cc, 4-stroke, twin-spark engine that generates 19.8 Bhp and 28 Nm of peak torque. Royal Enfield is working on a new platform of retro motorcycles aimed primarily at woman buyers. The Explorer brand could be brought back later this year for this new foray.
