Royal Enfield Classic 350 Overview
Royal Enfield Classic 350 always had a familiar timeless aesthetics.
It continues that trend, but with a few subtle changes. Moreover, it has been inspired by the post-war G2 model.
While the front section hasn’t been changed much, but the headlamp comes with a clearer lens with a subtly updated headlamp housing.
The side position remains the same with the tear-drop-shaped fuel tank.
Interestingly enough, Royal Enfield has an updated gear shifter and rear brakes. However, these are more quality of life changes.
Furthermore, seat cushioning and design has been increased to improve comfort.
And, it now comes with wider front and rear tyre sizes.

Let’s talk about the topic at hand, the delay.
Royal Enfield has planned an early launch of the highly-anticipated Classic 350. However, the series of lockdowns forced the company to postpone its plans.
Furthermore, the international semiconductor shortages only added to the further delay.
Hence, it will take a few more months for everything to get back to normal.
If everything goes according to plan, it will likely launch after July 2022. Nevertheless, Royal Enfield Nepal will bring and launch the new Classic 350 in 2022.
