- 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 spied once again
- New spy shots reveal a circular LED tail lamp
- It will be based on RE’s new J platform
Royal Enfield was spotted testing what looked like the upcoming 2021 edition of its highest-selling model, the Classic 350. It was reportedly sighted in the hills of Valparai in Tamil Nadu. In fact, the spy shots show a whole convoy of the 2021 Classic 350 test mules which were undergoing altitude tests.
The latest images of the motorcycle only show the rear section of the bike, revealing that it sports a circular LED tail lamp. Meanwhile, the indicators continue to be conventional units. Interestingly, more details are known about the 2021 Classic 350, thanks to the spy images we had surfaced a few days back.
Royal Enfield will utilise its new J platform for the next-generation Classic 350 which has already been incorporated in its newest offering, the Meteor 350. This includes a double cradle frame which holds a 349cc engine capable of churning out 20.2bhp of power and 24Nm of peak torque. As we have observed in the Meteor, this heavily reworked engine feels much smoother and torquier than the existing Classic’s engine.
Similar to the platform, the upcoming Classic 350 is also likely to come equipped with RE’s new Tripper navigation system which is present in the Meteor. If that’s the case, the navigation module will be placed beside the analogue speedometer of the bike. Other expected changes in the 2021 Classic 350 are update switchgear and handlebar grips along with revised seat cushioning for better comfort.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is expected to be launched in the coming weeks. It will definitely be more expensive than the existing Classic 350 which has a starting price of Rs 1.64 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
