    Next-gen Royal Enfield Classic spied with accessories

    A month ago, the first set of spy images of an updated Royal Enfield Classic surfaced online. The Royal Enfield Classic is one of the most successful offerings from the bike maker and the model spied revealed a fair bit of mechanical and cosmetic changes. Now, the bike has been spied testing again with some official accessories.

    Like we’d earlier reported, the bike was seen with its front and rear disc brakes on the right-hand side, instead of on the left like on the current model. The chain has also shifted over to the left from the right. This indicates that Royal Enfield might be using an entirely new drivetrain, and we believe that the engine could be an all-new BS VI-compliant model as well. The reorientation of the front disc could be to accommodate a new fork assembly. While it looks similar to the one on the current model, it could be housing different internals. It also gets a more compact exhaust system.

    The recent spy images also reveal that the footpegs are a lot wider than those on the current model. The extra room on the rider and pillion footpegs could improve comfort. Adding to this will be the new seat design and a back rest for the pillion. Visually similar to the one on the Thunderbird line-up, the seats look like they offer a fair amount of room.

    While the aforementioned updates are likely to be standard on the upcoming motorcycle, the taller windscreen, crash guard and saddlebags will mostly be offered as optional accessories.
