Royal Enfield has launched the Bharat Stage 6 or BS6 version of the Classic 350 in India. The prices start at ₹ 1.65 lakh (ex-showroom). The Royal Enfield Classic 350 forms the bulk of the company's sales. But just to reiterate, this is just the BS6 model. A new generation model is on the anvil, with possible launch in mid-2020. The price of the BS6 model is about ₹ 11,000 more than the ABS equipped BS4 model of the Classic 350. The engine on the BS6 Classic 350 gets electronic fuel injection and will be more refined. Plus, the company says that it has been tuned to offer better power delivery as well.
