The latest spy shots of Royal Enfield Classic show the complete changes onboard. The updated bike will be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo.
Royal Enfield is going to update its entire lineup in India for the upcoming BS-6 norms. Almost all the motorcycles will receive a significant upgrade, giving some cosmetic upgrades and minor feature additions as well.
We have fresh spy shots of the new Royal Enfield motorcycle ahead of the expected launch at the 2020 Auto Expo. These showcase all the changes that come on this updated bike and we are quite impressed with it.
The bike actually looks more sculpted now, mainly from the fuel tank, battery housing cover and the tail lamps. It also gets a new split seat missing out on the springs on the rider’s seat.
The footpegs and levers undergo some revision. Now, the new Royal Enfield motorcycles will miss out on the good ol’ kick starter. A revolutionizing moment indeed. Chances are that it could get fuel injection system as well.
As told earlier, the setup of chain sprocket and rear disc brake has been interchanged. Looks like it also gets a new transmission setup, but will still come with the 5-speed gearbox. Reports suggest that the alternator case will also be revised. A new dual-cradle frame comes underneath the new Classic, which will improve the handling by a bit.
That remains a question whether the new Royal Enfield motorcycles will continue with the same 350cc and 500cc engines onboard, provided that they are very old. Reports suggest that some major revisions and addition of FI will make the existing engines compliant to the BS-6 norms.
We expect the quality and fitting of the body panels and equipment to improve in the new motorcycles. Users are always seen complaining about the quality of equipment on the RE bikes, which we think will no longer be a problem.
Remember, the Bullet, Thunderbird and Classic Series will receive major updates. Since Himalayan and the 650 Twins are new, they are likely to get the BS-6 engines only. Chances are that the Himalayan might also get the 650cc engine onboard.
Officials have hinted towards the launch of the new Royal Enfield motorcycle lineup at the 2020 Auto Expo. But, we expect more leaked details to pour in well before the launch.
