Royal Enfield is all set to launch the Bobber which will be based on the new version of Classic 350 in the new next six months. We get you details that might make their way into the new upcoming motorcycle. RE might extend the wheelbase of standard Classic 350 for new Bobber and in order to equip it with a low-slung riding position, the ground clearance of the bike is likely to get decreased by a few millimeters. The single seat wrapped in opulent leather might be suspended through the coil spring and completing the looks of the bike would be its red shade adorning it with old-school charm.
The renderings also point toward a more curvaceous nature of the fuel tank which will differentiate this Bobber from the standard Classic model. RE will also offer the right combination of side panels to the bike and we also expect the Bobber to come with a chrome-plated exhaust tip. In terms of the equipment, new 350 Bobber might feature Bluetooth connectivity and navigation capabilities for enhanced practicality during long rides. The display will offer a host of information to the rider and is likely to come with high legibility for the sake of reading convenience.
In terms of engine and specification, the new Bobber will continue to rely on the same J-series, 349cc petrol engine capable of putting out 20.2bhp and 27 Nm of max power and max torque respectively. The dual-channel ABS system is likely to be a standard part of equipment and both front and rear and will get the functionality of disc brakes. The front suspension system is likely to be a Telescopic fork arrangement and the overall weight of the bike will be around 195-200 kg.
The wheels are likely to retain the spoked profile just like other offerings in this category. RE is likely to charge a premium of around Rs 30-40k for its new Classic 350 Bobber and if that happens, the bike is likely to get a positive response from prospective buyers. It will be interesting to witness how true the production model of the new 350 Bobber will remain to its currently conceived renderings and we can only comment on the precision of these imaginative people once the new classic 350 Bobber launches into the market in 2023.
