A massive update brings the popular Classic back to the future.
Classic 350 owners will no longer get ridiculed for not having a fuel gauge. The latest update has added a small LCD below the analogue speedometer that displays the odometer, two trip metres and the long overdue fuel gauge. While the LCD is a nice touch, the updated analogue speedometer, with its glowing needle, looks a bit too modern. The conventional needle and white face of the older bike looked more appropriate.
The top-spec Chrome variant also gets the company’s Tripper navigation display as an optional extra. It will also be available as an MIY accessory for the lower models in the coming months. It takes the low fuel light gauge’s place on the older bike, which means it doesn’t stick out or look out of place. Using Google Maps data, this system works when connected to the Royal Enfield app, and we found it to be quite intuitive and helpful. However, it doesn’t give you any call or SMS related notifications. It’s also hard to read with the sun right overhead. If you decide not to use Tripper navigation, this display will simply show you the time.
The Classic 350 finally gets a fuel gauge along with two trip metres on the new LCD display.
The company has said that it will offer Tripper navigation as an optional accessory on the lower-spec models in a few months’ time, when semi-conductor related supply improves. There’s a neat USB charging socket underneath the clutch lever’s mounting point, but that’s where the features list ends.
Royal Enfield has realised that its buyers like to personalise their motorcycles, which is why the
Classic 350 will have a number of accessories available straight from the factory. With the help of the online configurator, buyers will be able to choose from a number of accessories, including different alloy wheels, exhausts and seat options. The company will also be offering a lower seat option that reduces the 805mm seat height by 32mm.
