After being recently spotted in Gunmetal Grey shade, the upcoming BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 has now been spotted in two new colours: Stealth Black and Chrome Edition. The BS6-compliant variant of the current-gen Classic 350 features factory-fitted alloy wheels in addition to getting updated engine specifications.
In terms of looks, the Stealth Black shade features an all-black colour scheme with red Royal Enfield and Classic 350 logos. The brand has further offered red pinstripes to the alloy wheels to match with the overall colour combination. The Chrome Edition, on the other hand, features chrome body panels along with tan-brown seats and light-gold logos.
Coming to the updated engine according to the new BS6 emission norms, the motorcycle has been equipped with an electronic fuel injection technology that features a catalytic converter packed inside the canister. In addition to this, the BS6 Royal Enfield Classic 350 features an oxygen sensor and an all-new exhaust unit with a larger heat shield.
The alloy wheel setup offered to the updated motorcycle features a similar design like the Royal Enfield Thunderbird X variant and doesn’t get a chrome finish. Powering the updated Classic 350 is a BS6-compliant version of the existing 346cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine.
In its BS4 guise, it is capable of generating maximum power of 19.8Bhp and a peak torque of 28Nm. The engine remains mated to a 5-speed gearbox. At present, no details are available regarding the power and torque figures of the updated BS6 engine.
Like the BS4 model, the braking duties are handled by a 280mm disc brake at the front while the rear has been equipped with a 240mm disc brake mated to dual-channel ABS as standard. The motorcycle is equipped with telescopic forks at the front and 5-Step adjustable preload absorbers at the rear.
One can expect the brand to officially launch the motorcycle in India with a starting price tag of INR 1.60-1.65 lakh in the coming days. 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 major cosmetic changes, a more powerful engine, an all-new digital-analogue instrument console and an overall new design language.
