The new 350cc single-seat Bobber from the house of Royal Enfield has been spied testing in Chennai, India. The new motorcycle is based on the current Royal Enfield Classic 350. As a result, the Bobber receives no significant changes in terms of design. Side panels, headlamp casing, fuel tank, fenders, and wheelbase looked similar to the Classic 350, according to spy shots. The company has fitted the Bobber with a single-piece seat that seems to provide maximum comfort. The riding position is upright, and the rider's triangle is not aggressive but relaxed. The new Bobber will be based on the J-series platform, and its launch is expected later this year. Besides, the company also has plans to introduce the new Bullet 350, intending to expand its 350cc portfolio. Currently, the company's 350cc model lineup based on the J-series platform includes the Classic 350, the Meteor 350, and the Hunter 350.
