Royal Enfield Classic 350 & Classic 500 New Colour Options

Royal Enfield recently launched the BS-IV compliant Himalayan FI variant in India. Now, according to a leaked document on Team-BHP, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Classic 500 will soon be updated with new features and colour options. According to the report, the Classic 350 will get a new ‘Gun Grey’ colour option while the Classic 500 will get an all-new ‘Stealth Black’ colour option. Royal Enfield has not revealed the exact timeline for the introduction of these new features on the Classic range, but we expect the company to soon launch the new range in India. Also Read: Royal Enfield Himalayan FI BS-4 Images Leaked; Price in India, Booking Details & Launch Date Revealed

Both the bikes will also come equipped with a rear disc brake assembly and new swing-arm. Apparently, this is the same disc brake & swing-arm setup as already available on the Royal Enfield Thunderbird. The introduction of rear disc brake assembly will make the Royal Enfield Classic range feature rich and somewhat on par with some of its rivals. Moreover, the introduction of disc brakes on both ends will pave way for Royal Enfield to introduce ABS on its range of motorcycles when the norms are made mandatory in 2018. Read More: Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 Video Surfaces Online; India Launch by Year End

According to the leaked document, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 gets the fuel tank, front and rear mud guards and the side boxes painted in the ‘Gun Grey’ colour scheme. On the other hand, the bike gets dark tan seat upholstery from the existing Classic Chrome range while the stickers on the fuel tank, air filter box, toolbox and mudguard are painted in matte black. That said, mechanically, both bikes will remain same and will get the same power-trains with the same engine outputs and transmission options. Expect prices to be increased slightly in the region of INR 10,000 to INR 15,000.
