Royal Enfield Classic Range to get new features & colours – Report
Praveen M, Engineer-turned-motorcycle journalist. I'm a sucker for cruising down the highways, and twisties in the hills.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Royal Enfield Classic 500 will be updated with new colours and features, according to leaked images from TeamBHP.
The two bikes will employ the swingarm from the Royal Enfield Thunderbird and get a rear disc brake as well. This modification will allow the fitment of ABS line when Royal Enfield decides to add, as per the 2018 norms.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 gets a new colour called ‘Gun Grey’. The front and rear mud guards, fuel tank and side boxes are of Gun Grey colour. The stickers on the fuel tank, toolbox, air filter box and mudguard are in matte black. The bike gets a dark tan seat that is taken from the existing Classic Chrome.
The new colour of the Royal Enfield Classic 500 is called the Stealth Black. The powertrain is finished in the similar colour scheme as the Royal Enfield Thunderbird. The headlamp ring, handlebar and handlebar clamp are black. The spoke wheels get black power coating. The body panels such as fuel tank, fenders, tool box, and air-filter box get matte black colour.
Apart from these changes, the mechanicals is likely to remain the same. The timeline of the launch of the updated bikes is not known, but expect Royal Enfield to make an announcement regarding the same in the coming weeks.
