The new-generation 2020 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be the second model to be built on the J platform.
The popular Royal Enfield Classic 350 has been completely redesigned. While it may not appear so at first inspection, the bike has undergone significant modifications.
The ‘J-platform’ 349cc engine, which replaces the 346cc UCE, is one of the most significant improvements. This engine is the same as the one found on the Meteor 350, according to Royal Enfield. It does, however, have its own ignition, exhaust, and fueling maps. As a result, the pushrod-valve mechanism of the previous Classic is replaced by a SOHC two-valve head. The peak power and torque figures are 20.3hp and 27Nm, respectively. For comparison, the previous model produced 19.1 horsepower and 28 Nm.
These improvements, like those made to the Meteor 350, have been designed to boost useful torque and reduce vibrations. The engine is still mated to a five-speed transmission.
The chassis has also undergone significant revisions by Royal Enfield. A double-downtube frame has been added to the original single-cradle frame for 2021. The only difference between this alteration and the one on the Meteor 350 is the foot peg mounting. While the suspension components may appear to be the same as previously, Royal Enfield has stated that they are not, with the new Classic receiving a 41mm telescopic fork.
The 2021 Classic 350’s ground clearance has been boosted by 35mm to a respectable 170mm.A 300mm front disc and a 270mm rear rotor with dual-channel ABS provide braking. The single-channel ABS vehicles, on the other hand, have a rear drum brake.
For more comfortable saddle time, the front and rear suspensions have been considerably modified. The Classic feels nimble and responsive, with superior ride ergonomics and more confident braking, and promises to improve the ride experience each time.
The 2021 Classic 350 receives a redesigned instrument cluster with an LCD and a fuel gauge for the first time. It’s also equipped with two trip meters. The Tripper navigation display is included on the top-spec Chrome variant. It only shows navigation-related information and uses Google Maps data from your smartphone. It does not, however, send any call or SMS notifications. The bike also has new lights all around, however they are all halogen-powered. Another difference is the upgraded switchgear, which is adopted from the Meteor 350.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be available in 11 color variations and five versions in 2021.Redditch, Halcyon, Signals, Dark, and Chrome are the five Royal Enfield Classic 350 variations for 2021.
