2020 RE Classic launch is expected next year with a BSVI adhering engine…
Royal Enfield is exhaustively testing its upcoming 2020 Classic range. This, along with all the other changes that have been spotted earlier, signify that there will be major changes to the mechanicals of the motorcycle. On the aesthetic front, it doesn’t look a lot different from the current version on sale.
Motoroids has posted spy pics of the 2020 Classic which was spotted with accessories such as a large wind-screen, saddelbags, pillion back-rest (from the Thunderbird), crash guards etc. In this latest set of spy pics, it appears that the seating has also been altered – the seat looks better finished and may be slightly more comfortable.
From the earlier spy pics we already know that the new Classic range will get a shorter exhaust, discs on the alternate side (current version has them on the left side) and hence, the chain shifts to the left side of the engine. This is the single biggest reason of believing that the Classic may get an exhaustive engine-related upgrade.

It also gets minor differences in rear shock absorbers and tail lamps. Launch, as we believe will be around or slightly earlier than April 2020, which is when the BSVI emission norms kick in. Apart from this, the first test mules of the 2020 Thunderbird have also been spotted – spy pics here.
