2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 Spied Testing Again
The motorcycle appears to sport a subtle design change this time round
- The test mule doesn’t appear to be too different from the one spotted earlier.
- The biggest change here comes in the form of the rear chrome tail light housing which has been replaced with a matte black one.
- Royal Enfield is also working on a more affordable 650cc alternative.
New spy shots of the 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 have surfaced, giving us a clearer hint as to how the production motorcycle might look like. The test mule was spotted again in Chennai with a whole bunch of accessories, including a windshield, saddleback and a backrest. However, this time around, the rear chrome cylindrical housing for the tail lamp has been replaced with a matte black one.
While it may seem like the company is putting the final touches on the motorcycle, that might not be the case. In all likelihood, the company is likely to launch the motorcycle sometime early next year.
The new-gen Royal Enfield was first spotted testing in March with some major revisions. The highlight of the new bike will be the new BS6-compliant motor. Other changes include a redesigned chassis, LED tail lights and more. Considering the aforementioned updates, we expect Royal Enfield to price the new-gen Classic 350 around Rs 1.7 lakh (ex-showroom).
Sounds interesting, right? But what if we were to tell you that this isn’t even the biggest news coming out of RE’s camp right now. The Chennai-based bikemaker recently filed a trademark for the ‘Meteor’ name in Europe under the ‘Motorcycle, Apparel and Riding Gear’ class.
No, we don’t think it will be yet another re-badged special edition model. We believe it could be a completely new motorcycle based on the 650cc platform. Best of all, there are chances that it could be a more affordable version of the current 650 twins. The company could even use the Bullet or Classic’s underpinnings to keep costs down.
