The country’s leading performance bike maker Royal Enfield is soon preparing to launch the next generation model of its best selling model Classic 350 in the domestic market. This bike has also been seen during testing on many different occasions. But till now only camouflage pictures of this bike were seen. Now for the first time completely clear pictures of this bike have come to the fore.
According to the report published in Gaadiwadi, the company can launch this bike in the market in the coming few months. Recently this bike has been seen again. In these pictures, many changes made in the design etc. of this bike are clearly visible. Although this bike is completely based on its traditional design, but some minor changes have been made in it.
These big changes have happened:
It gets retro-styled circular headlamps with chrome bezels, chrome-plated exhaust (silencer), round shape rear view mirror, fuel tank in tear drop shape and attractive fenders. Its side panels and fuel tank also get C-shaped graphics, while new strips are seen in the fenders. The rear profile of the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 has also been updated. It is now even more compact than before, and gets modified tail-lamps and indicators.
While the single-seater variant gets upgraded seats with better cushioning, the twin-seater model gets split seats and blacked-out treatment. Disc brakes have been provided at the front and drum brakes at the rear. It is believed that the top model will get a 300mm disc brake at the front and 270mm at the rear, which will be equipped with Dual Channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). However, the braking system has now been installed on the right side.
Vibration will be less
This bike is based on the company’s new “J” modular architecture, on which the company’s recently introduced Meteor 350 has also been built. It is being told that a balancer shaft has been added to reduce the vibration in this bike, which makes the driving experience even better.
In this bike, the company is using a new fuel injected engine of 349cc capacity, which generates 20.2bhp power and 27Nm torque. This engine comes with a 5 speed gearbox. The new Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be offered with 19-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels with spoked rims. Whereas tubeless alloy wheels can be found in the top-end variant. Its price may be slightly higher than the current model.
