New Bobber Design Adds Distinctive Flair

Several spy shots of the upcoming Classic 350 Bobber reveal key aspects of its design. It retains the same 349cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine as the standard Classic 350. However, the bike features ape-hanger handlebars, white-walled tires, and a stubby rear fender mounted directly to the wheel in typical bobber fashion. A raised single-seat design adds to the bike's bobber flair.

Customizable Solo/Dual Seating

The Bobber's pillion seat appears to be removable, allowing riders to customize the bike for solo or two-up riding. This versatility caters to both riders wanting a stripped-down bobber aesthetic and those needing passenger accommodation.

Modern Updates Complement Retro Styling

While the overall design echoes the standard Classic 350, the Bobber incorporates modern updates like LED turn signals and an updated exhaust. This fusion of classic and contemporary elements offers fresh new appeal.

Niche Alternative to Regular Classic 350

The upcoming addition expands Royal Enfield's popular 350cc portfolio, providing a stylish bobber alternative to the standard Classic 350. While purists may debate its authenticity, the Bobber's blend of form and function holds definite appeal.

Expected Mid-2024 Launch at Rs. 2.2 Lakhs

The Classic 350 Bobber is expected to launch in India in mid-2024, carrying an ex-showroom price tag around Rs. 2.2 lakhs. It will compete against the Jawa Perak and Yezdi Roadking in the niche bobber space.
