EXCLUSIVE: Royal Enfield Starts Rolling Out Its BS6 Classic 350


The new Classic 350 will be fuel-injected and will arrive with alloy rims

  • The powerplant continues to be the same 349cc UCE unit as before.
  • There aren’t any mechanical changes to report.
  • Prices are expected to go up by Rs 12,000 - Rs 14,000 from the BS4 model.

Royal Enfield has finally started rolling out its BS6 inventory as the BS6 Classic 350 was spotted at a dealership. Unlike the one seen last week, which was the factory customised BS4 Classic 350, this bike is seen sporting a large chunky cat-con, an O2 sensor, Interceptor 650-styled throttle body with fuel injection, and alloy rims. The BS6 Classic 350 is likely to bear a price hike of Rs 12,000 to Rs 14,000 when compared to its BS4 counterpart which currently retails for Rs 1.54 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

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.

The BS4 Classic 350’s engine pumped out 20PS and 28Nm from its 349cc single-cylinder thumper engine. We earlier believed Enfield would be producing a new 350cc powerplant for the BS6 Classic 350. 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.

Mechanically, the BS6 Classic 350 features the same downtube chassis sprung by a front telescopic fork and twin shocks at the rear. It will continue to employ disc brakes at both ends. But now you will get tubeless tyres, increasing the convenience factor.
