New Royal Enfield Classic 350 Spotted at Factory Stockyard: Ahead of the official launch in India, Royal Enfield has commenced dealer dispatches of the all-new Classic 350 and Guru Jeet Vlogs has managed to shoot a 1-minute long video of the motorcycle at the factory stockyard, revealing the new model in all its glory.
The model in the video is finished in matte black colour and is equipped with red-coloured split seats. This particular variant of the new Royal Enfield Classic 350 is most probably the top-end version while the basic model is expected to feature a gloss paint finish along with standard black-coloured seats. Here is the latest spy video of the next-gen RE Classic 350:

Mechanically, the 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will come powered by the Meteor 350’s air-cooled 349cc engine, which is good for a maximum power of 20.2 HP along with a peak torque of 27 Nm. The engine will remain mated to a 5-speed transmission.
As we reported earlier, the next-gen RE Classic 350 also features the brand’s Bluetooth navigation system known as ‘Tripper Navigation’. After the Meteor 350 and Himalayan 411, the next-gen Classic 350 is the third motorcycle under the brand’s portfolio to get this navigation feature.
As one can see in the spy photos and video, the all-new semi-digital instrument console clearly shows a departure from the old-gen design through the addition of a digital display to the centre pod. The upper section is more or less similar to the console of the current-gen Classic 350, adding an extension in the form of a rectangular digital display that can feature all the important additions like the odometer, trip meter, fuel level indicator, clock and much more. The brand has placed the ‘Tripper Navigation’ dial on the right-hand side of the digital display.
Once launched, the new-gen Classic 350 would be competing with the likes of Jawa Classic 300, Mahindra Mojo 300, Honda Highness CB350, Benelli Imperiale 400, and the Bajaj Dominar 400. In terms of pricing, the new-gen RE Classic 350 is expected to get a starting ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.85 lakhs.
