BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 Launch Soon (Bookings Open): As per the latest buzz, the BS6-compliant model of the current-gen RE Classic 350 will launch in the Indian market on January 7, 2020. Some of the Royal Enfield dealerships have also started accepting pre-bookings for the motorcycle. Along with making the current-gen Classic 350 BS6-compliant, the brand has also equipped the street cruiser motorcycle with alloy wheels, though some of the colours will be available with spoke wheels.
The upcoming model of the Classic 350 was recently spotted in Gunmetal Grey, Stealth Black, Chrome Edition and Signals Edition. In addition to these four special colours, Royal Enfield is expected to offer the BS6 model in standard colours like Black, Maroon, White and more.
The motorcycle will be powered by a BS6-compliant version of the existing 346cc, single-cylinder engine that is capable to generate a maximum power of 19.8Bhp and a peak torque of 28Nm in its BS4 guise. The engine will remain mated to a 5-speed transmission. At present, no details are available regarding the power and torque figures of the updated BS6 engine.
The brand has equipped the motorcycle with an electronic fuel injection technology, a catalytic converter and an oxygen sensor to meet the upcoming BS6 emission norms, which will be implemented in the Indian market on April 1 this year. Along with making the current-gen Classic 350 BS6-compliant, Royal Enfield has also equipped the motorcycle with a slightly different exhaust muffler with a bigger heat shield.
One can expect Royal Enfield to officially launch the motorcycle with a starting price tag of around INR 1.60 lakh (ex-showroom). In addition to the updated BS6 current-gen model, the all-new 2020 variant of the Royal Enfield Classic is also expected to be launched by mid-2020 while getting a lot of cosmetic changes, a more powerful engine and an all-new digital-analogue instrument console.
