Here's a list of top updates the new bike is likely to bring forward:
One of the most prominent changes on the new Classic 350 is going to be its new platform which is shared with the already present Meteor 350 motorcycle. The use of a new platform is expected to improve the road manners of Royal Enfield's most popular bike.
Apart from the new platform, the Classic 350 is also likely going to use the same 349 cc air-cooled engine as the Meteor. As HT Auto's test revealed, this engine will likely improve the noise and vibration issues on the current model since it is a significantly refined unit than the current engine.
As seen on the recently launched Himalayan 2021, the new Classic 350 may also receive the Tripper turn-by-turn navigation feature. It was first launched with the Meteor 350 last year.

Some of the new changes the bike is going to sport include revised cushioning on the seat and updated switchgear. In addition to that, it also seems to feature a slightly tweaked exhaust system.
