Revamping done right: the Classic Royal Enfield 2021

On the heels of its huge success in the cruiser segment, on September 1, Royal Enfield launched the 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350. The design of the new bike remains essentially the same as the previous base models’, as evidenced by the round headlight, curvy design, and split-style seat. However, the new model comes with a host of updates, including a new chassis and a new fuel gauge. 

The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 in India

The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a comfortable, stable, and mostly vibration-free bike that makes for an extremely relaxing ride. The most exciting update in the 2021 Royal Enfield is its new 349cc SOHC engine, which marks a pivotal change over the ones featured in the brand’s previous base models.

The engine of the Classic 350 has been massively improved, and the bike is quicker than the previous base models because of the engine’s fast throttle.
