It’s a known fact now that Royal Enfield is preparing to launch a heavily updated version of its popular offering, the Classic. The upcoming model has been spied on several occasions before. However, we have now got our hands on the detailed pictures of the 2020 RE Classic. Let’s check them out.
The overall design of the new Classic will be majorly retained. However, it gets subtle changes such as a restyled cylindrical tail lamp, underseat panel and a new grab rail.
It is also equipped with a tweaked instrument cluster comprising of a round-shaped analogue speedometer along with a small digital display for showing other information.
The motorcycle also incorporates new handlebar grips with chrome-finished end weights. Moreover, the regulator-type headlamp and ignition switches are in line with its retro theme.
Royal Enfield has also equipped the 2020 Classic with new rider and pillion seats with better cushioning for an added comfort.
The biggest change will come in the form of a new BS6-compliant engine. Rumours have it that RE will increase the displacement of the existing 346cc powerplant while the 500cc variants are to be discontinued.
The gas-charged rear shock absorbers have been replaced by conventional units while the disc brake setup at the rear has also been shifted to the right side.
RE has replaced the single downtube chassis by a double cradle frame, perhaps to accommodate the revised powerplant.
The new Royal Enfield Classic is expected to be launched early next year with around Rs 10,000-15,000 premium over the pricing of the current-gen model.
