The engine is one of the big changes in this latest upgrade of Classic 350. The new variant includes a ‘J-platform’ 349cc engine. It has replaced the 346cc UCE engine in the previous models. The engine used in the new 2021 model is the same as used on the Meteor 350. But the new Classic 350 will have its exhaust layout, ignition timing, and fueling map.
