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. 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 looks, the fuel tank is almost similar in design to the current-gen model, with flat Royal Enfield stickers. The biggest change here is visible on the engine, with an all-new design and compact placement of the components, which have been further borrowed from the Meteor 350.
The next-gen model of the Royal Enfield Classic 350 features a different rear seat design, a practical grab rail, and a new tail-light setup. The model is equipped with a new frame instead of the current-gen model’s single downtube unit. This change could drastically reduce vibrations.
An earlier spy photo of the next-gen Royal Enfield Classic 350 with a 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 older Classic, 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.
