exposed look
The looks of the motorcycle haven’t changed much since the first pictures surfaced, considering its displacement, and the fact that it’s oil-cooled, it will be comparable to the Royal Enfield Classic 350 (20hp/27Nm) Expect it to be more powerful and torquey.

What else is special?
The ergonomics are still pretty neutral. One thing that has changed in the new model is the tyres. The X 440 was earlier seen shod in CEAT Zoom Cruise rubber but is now shod in MRF tires that sport a retro tread pattern just like the Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp. The size of the wheels is 18-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear, which gives the motorcycle a handsome, commanding look.
