The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been spotted testing undisguised for the first time. Spy images from earlier had revealed little. This time, however, more details of the motorcycle have surfaced thanks to this video.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the bread and butter model for the brand and makes up most of the sales numbers. Despite it selling well, we knew that the next-gen Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been in the making for a while now.
From the moment word got out that Royal Enfield was developing a brand-new engine, enthusiasts and those in the know just knew that this engine would make its way into the Classic. Well, the new ‘J-series’ engine first debuted in the Royal Enfield Meteor 350 and spy shots suggest that the next model to receive this engine will be the next-gen classic 350.
In terms of design, the next-gen Classic 350 remains similar to the current model. However, a keen eye for detail will notice the new double-cradle frame instead of the single downtube seen on the current model. Also, one can notice the new J-series engine cradled in it.
It is an air-cooled, 349cc, single-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 20.2bhp and a peak torque output of 24Nm. As we found in our review of the Meteor 350, this is unlike any other single-cylinder engine from Royal Enfield seen in the past as it is so much smoother and refined.
The large speedometer seen on the current-gen Classic 350 has been retained in the next-gen too. This time, however, there is an LCD screen right under it, which we assume should read out the fuel level, odometer, trip meters, etc. It is also expected to feature the Tripper turn-by-turn navigation system that first debuted in the Meteor 350.
The rear-end of the motorcycle gets a slight redesign in terms of the tail-lamp positioning. The seat too seems wider and more comfortable. The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is expected to be launched in the first quarter of 2021.
