Royal Enfield has announced via a teaser that the 2021 Classic 350 motorbike will be launched in India tomorrow i.e. September 1. Its unofficial bookings are open. The old-school cruiser bike will receive some styling changes along with new features. It will draw power from a 349cc, air- and oil-cooled engine sourced from the Meteor 350. Here are more details.
The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will be based on the 'J' platform and shall have a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, split-style seats, rotary switches, a lengthy exhaust, and a rounded headlight as well as mirrors.
