The spy shots reveal the developments made in the new Royal Enfield Classic, set for launch next year.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Classic 500 needed a significant upgrade for a long time. With the hardware updates for the BS6 norms, Royal Enfield has provided the bike with certain design changes.
The bike uses a revised engine with new transmission and alternator cases. Although, the new Classics are suspected to hold their 350 and 500cc configurations. The footpegs and rear brake lever look updated. In fact, the rear brake lever is now shorter and routed above the foot peg. Also, the motorcycle gets new seats.
Moreover, the gearbox casing on the left side seems curiously similar to the one on the Interceptor 650. This could hint at the possibility of adopting the 6-speed transmission available in the Interceptor 650. The engine head also appears to be different, as it would be impossible for Royal Enfield to make the engine BS6 compliant with the current hardware.
The 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is likely to be priced between Rs. 1.7-1.8 lakhs. The bike will compete against the Jawa and Jawa Forty Two. We expect the Indian motorcycle maker to introduce the new gen Classic sometime next year.
