Royal Enfield has just pulled the cover on a very pretty version of the Classic 350, soon to be delivered to the UK for an early 2022 – and they’re keeping the single-cylindered ‘thump’ we have come to know and love.
MCN states that the beauty of a beastie will be getting a few upgrades, most notably in a new primary balancer for the air-and-oil-cooled 349cc engine (courtesy of the Meteor), the upgraded 5-speed gearbox, and a new chassis to hold the heart of the machine.
(If the twin downtube-spine frame is anything like what the Meteor has to offer, we’re getting a lighter, stiffer number that will allow better punch while still allowing for good handling).
That’s not all – Royal Enfield’s Classic 350 will also sport a better braking system, beefier forks, wider tyres, upgraded suspension, new handlebars, a cushy new seat, and the neat addition of dual-channel Bosch ABS.
Make sure to watch for the unveiling of this motorbike at the EICMA in November – until then, expect this beastie to hit dealerships by next spring.
