Finally, after a long wait, the country’s leading performance bike manufacturer Royal Enfield is going to launch the next generation model of its best selling bike Classic 350. According to media reports, the company can launch this bike for sale in the market on August 31. Unofficial booking of this bike has also been started at some dealerships in the country.
Although this bike is completely based on its traditional design, but some minor changes have been made in it. 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.
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.
The new Classic 350 will be available in both single and dual seat options. It has a mid set footpeg and an ergonomically shaped handlebar. Apart from this, it will get a semi-digital instrument console, which will include both an analog speedometer and a digital display. The most important thing is that this bike will be equipped with tripper navigation system. It is believed that its price may be slightly higher than the current model.
