The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been tested for some time. In the past, several prototypes of the upcoming motorcycle have been spotted on various occasions. And now another test mule of the updated model has been spied on.
The latest spy images from the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 were shared by Grasholt Vlogs. We can see from the pictures that the prototype is heavily camouflaged through the use of black camouflage paint. However, thanks to previous spy footage, we know what the upcoming Classic 350 would look like.
The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 prototype in these spy pictures has a chrome headlamp bezel. We can also see the chrome headlamp’s forehead extension which gives the bike a retro look. The fog lights need to be dimmed for this particular test mule. The instrument cluster of the new Classic 350 has been redesigned. Below the speedometer is a display that shows information like fuel level, clock, odometer, odometer and more. There will also be a module for the company’s Tripper navigation system, which debuted with the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 last year.
Other features of the upcoming Royal Enfield Classic 350 include new switchgear, alloy wheels, split seats, redesigned taillights, etc. The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 will likely use the same 349cc single cylinder engine that comes built into the Meteor. It is a newly developed engine with an advanced SOHC and a balance shaft to absorb vibrations. This has certainly resulted in a quieter and more comfortable ride. In the Meteor, this air-cooled motor was tuned to a maximum output of 20.2 HP and a maximum torque of 27 Nm and is connected to a 5-speed gearbox.
Royal Enfield is expected to launch the new Classic 350 in India soon. Because of this, the Chennai-based company is also working on a number of other motorcycles, including a large-capacity cruiser based on the 650cc platform.
