New spy photos of the upcoming 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 have surfaced online and this time around we get to see the bike's new instrument cluster, which comes with the company's new Tripper navigation unit. First introduced in the Meteor 350, the new Tripper unit on the instrument cluster comes with a small LCD panel that features a digital clock, and also double up as a display for turn-by-turn navigation. It can be accessed through Royal Enfield's new Tripper mobile app, which is connected via Bluetooth.
The cluster also includes a larger analogue speedometer with a small monochrome display below it, which could for fuel gauge and odometer. The 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will continue to come without a tachometer, and the rest of the elements look unchanged.
Previous spy photos have revealed that the 2021 Classic 350 will also come with revised styling elements like - new side panels, and an updated headlamp, which is likely to feature an integrated LED daytime running light unit, similar to the one seen on Meteor 350. The bike will also come with a new round taillamp unit. Similar to the existing Classic 350 models, the new-gen bike is also likely to be offered in both spoked and alloy wheels option, along with dual-channel ABS.

The bike is built on the company's new modular J platform, which also underpins the Classic 350, we could expect improved handling and ride quality. Similarly, powertrain wise, it will be powered by the company's new 349 cc single-cylinder SOHC air- and oil-cooled engine that made its debut in the Meteor 350. The engine is tuned to make about 20.2 bhp at 6,100 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm, and we expect it to remain unchanged in the new Classic 350. The engine gets fuel injection, and also a new counter balancer that reduces vibrations.
