Exclusive: Royal Enfield Classic 350 BS6 Rolling Out

Royal Enfield has finally started rolling out its BS6 inventory as the BS6 Classic 350 was spotted at a dealership. While earlier spy pictures of the updated Royal Enfield Classic 350 showed alloy wheels and new decals, the latest images show a Classis 350, retaining the same overall design of the outgoing model.

The updated Royal Enfield Classic 350 will meet the upcoming Bharat Stage VI (BS6) emission regulations, which will come into effect from April 1, 2020.

The BS6 model of the RE Classic 350 is expected to be more expensive than the current carburetted BS4 model. Expect prices to be hiked by around 10-12 per cent over the current generation BS4 model. That will translate to around ₹ 12,000 price hike over the outgoing model.

There seems to be no design change with the BS6 Classic 350 aside from the alloy rims. These alloys are a bit different from the ones that Enfield sells on its website as an accessory. These are completely blacked-out, not bearing the machine-finish spokes like the accessory.

In BS4 Classic 350 model, engine pumped out 20PS and 28Nm from its 349cc single-cylinder thumper engine. Even the test mules were seen running with a new engine platform. However, with the arrival of this fuel-injected UCE mill, we guess the new engine will be used in a new series of motorcycles, which might be called the Meteor.

Enfield trademarked the name ‘Meteor’ a while back, which we now guess will be the premium alternative to the Classic 350. Expect the Meteor, or whatever Enfield decides to call the new bike, to only arrive in late-2020 or in 2021.
