The next-generation of the Royal Enfield Classic was spied a couple of weeks ago sporting a number of cosmetic changes. Now, a new image that has surfaced online reveals that the upcoming Classic will also get a revised instrument console.
The upper half of the instrument cluster consists of a speedometer that has markings for kph and mph. This was seen in earlier images of the bike as well, but what wasn’t seen was what appears to be a small digital display that might have a fuel gauge, and perhaps even indicators for the turn signals and high beam, as well as basic odo and trip data. Towards the right of the main unit, there is a small black circle that looks like a dummy cover, but what that space could be used for is unclear.
Also new on the next-gen Classic is a red rotatory knob-like unit in place of the kill switch on the right side of the handlebar. This knob will double as an ignition button as well. The bike has a similar rotatory button, finished in black, on the left for the low/high beam and headlamp pass light.
Mechanically, much of the upcoming RE Classic’s details are still unknown, but it is certain that the new engine will be BS6-compliant. The engine will go through significant changes from its current state to comply with the emission norms, but to what extent and how much of an effect this will have on the performance and displacement remains to be seen.
