The brand is expected to launch its next-gen Classic 350 and Thunderbird variants in the coming months while the motorcycles have been imparted with revised styling.
The test mule of the updated Classic 350 has been spotted with an alloy wheel setup in addition to featuring a tall front visor. The motorcycle has been equipped with a revised tail lamp while the grab rail and the air filter box are also new. In addition to this, the next-gen Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been equipped with an extra cushioned seat to offer maximum comfort to the pillion as well as the rider.

In addition to these changes, the instrument console seen on the last-gen version of the Classic 350 has also been revised and now features an analogue speedometer unit mated to a digital display. The next-gen model of the motorcycle has been spotted with a number of accessories while the brand is also expected to offer a toned-down version with a spoke wheels setup.
The brand has recently launched the BS6-compliant variant of the current-gen Royal Enfield Classic 350 in the Indian market at a price tag of INR 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom).
