A new spy shot of the Royal Enfield Classic has been leaked online. The updated range will most likely be showcased and launched at the 2020 Auto Expo.
Royal Enfield is preparing to update its entire range in India, excluding the newly launched 650 Twins. The updated range will most likely debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, where we can also expect its launch.
Meanwhile, the 2020 Royal Enfield Classic has been spied again while testing near its plant in Tamil Nadu. This is the third time the updated cruiser has been spied, and again, it has revealed some fresh details.
Here, we can spot the cruiser with some official accessories onboard. Saddle bags on both the sides, a clear windscreen, small backrest, pillion grab rail and an engine guard as well.
Most of these accessories are available with the current Royal Enfield Classic range as well. The backrest is only available on the Thunderbird as of now. Newly added alloy wheels will also make its way on the updated model.
Further, the updated Classic will get many mechanical revisions. The spied test mule gets its sprocket and chain drive on the left side now. Disc brakes on both the ends are now on the right side.
The engines will be BS-6 compliant, as expected. Reports suggest that RE might also improve the performance of its 350cc and 500cc engines, equipping it with fuel injection too.
Cosmetic changes seen onboard include a sculpted fuel tank, newly designed seats and new tail lamps. Most of its styling will be the same that comes on the current Classic series.
The new Royal Enfield Classic will continue with the same telescopic forks at the front and shock absorbers on either side. Front and rear disc brakes with dual-channel ABS will provide the braking power.
Expect the prices to receive a minor bump, from its current starting price of Rs 1.50 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
