A new spy shot of Royal Enfield Classic has come up online. This time, it has been spotted with touring accessories onboard.

An earlier report confirmed that Royal Enfield will upgrade its entire lineup with modern technology and BS-6 engines by early 2020. The updated bikes might be showcased at 2020 Auto Expo.

Another spy shot of the new Royal Enfield Classic testing has come up. This time, it has been equipped with touring accessories like saddlebags, crash guard, wind deflector and a pillion backrest.

The kick start is not seen on the spied Royal Enfield Classic, indicating that it will get FI system. Till now, only the 650 Twins and Himalayan are available with Fuel-Injected engines.

Reportedly, the new Classic series will sit on a new chassis, which will provide better riding dynamics. We expect less vibrations and better performance with the updated engine.

We expect similar changes to come onboard the Bullet and Thunderbird series. Recently, the Thunderbird was also spotted wearing similar styling changes.

Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be the first one to get these updates. It is the best-selling model of the manufacturer, reporting more than 35,000 units of sales every month.

However, past 2-3 months have not been so good for Royal Enfield. The sales of Classic 350 and Thunderbird 350 are falling down gradually. The 650 Twins is still going strong clocking over 1000-1500 units every month.

With all these changes, the prices will be further revised. Currently, the entry-level Royal Enfield (Bullet 350) starts from Rs 1.21 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
