Royal Enfield, the iconic motorcycle brand, has announced plans to launch 13 upcoming Royal Enfield motorcycles in the coming years. These motorcycles will be launched in a phased manner, with four motorcycles per year strategy for the next three or four years. The upcoming motorcycles will be available in 350cc, 450cc, and 650cc segments.
Upcoming Royal Enfield Motorcycles List:
The iconic Bullet 350 will be upgraded with the J-Series platform. This new 350cc engine will reduce the spine-shattering vibrations associated with the outgoing Bullet 350 engine architecture. Expect some minor styling changes while keeping the original charm intact.
Royal Enfield is testing a new Bobber based on its best-seller Classic 350. The spy shots reveal a similar wheelbase to Classic 350 but with a chunkier exhaust and a taller handlebar. The new Bobber will come equipped with a 349cc J-series engine producing 20 bhp and 27 Nm.
One of the most anticipated models is the Himalayan 450, likely to launch ahead of the other models. It will feature USD front forks, LED lighting, a circular fully digital instrument cluster, and more. This adventure bike will compete with KTM 390 Adventure, BMW G 310 GS, and the upcoming Hero Xpulse 4XX.
The Roadster 450 is Royal Enfield’s answer to the KTM 390 Duke and BMW G 310 R. This will be the sportiest offering from the brand to date. It will miss out on USD forks but will be priced competitively.
Continental GT-R 450
The fully faired Continental GT-R 450 is a derivative of the Roadster 450. It will rival KTM RC 390 and BMW G 310 R. The 450cc engine will feature liquid cooling, and we expect performance numbers in the 30 bhp and 40 Nm range.
The Scram 450 is another addition to the 450cc platform. The name is highly likely, and it will feature a minimal body style with rugged overall appearance in the form of a headlight grille, under-seat exhaust, knobby tyres, and a front beak. Spoke wheels and long travel suspension will be thrown in the mix as well.
The Rally 450 is the 5th variation based on the 450cc platform. While the name is unconfirmed, it is expected to be a more ruggedized version of the Himalayan 450, possibly Royal Enfield’s rally-spec machine to rival Hero MotoCorp.
The Hunter 650 could be Royal Enfield’s first 650cc offering. It gets an overall similar silhouette as Shotgun 650, except rear seats. Only a few test mules are bobber-style with a single seat, so it is high time that we drew references to Hunter 650 (not confirmed).
Continental GT-R 650
Royal Enfield recently spawned GT Cup 2022, raising eyebrows and giving rise to racing motorcycles from the brand. The motorcycles racing in it were a lighter and fully-faired version of Continental GT 650 called Continental GT-R 650. The brand is testing a similar fairing on Continental GT 650 for production.
Royal Enfield has commenced testing for the Scram 650. The name is likely to stick, and the motorcycle could feature a single exhaust along with a different rear subframe. Expect longer travel suspension, knobby tyres, wire-spoke rims, and other Scrambler elements.
The SG 650 concept is a handsome machine, and we expect the production model to inherit most of its attractive design traits. The Shotgun 650 name is likely to stick as well. Similar styling with Hunter 650 with a single seat layout is likely.
A no-brainer, the Himalayan 650 is expected to have similar componentry from Himalayan 450 and more off-road credentials to take on the well-established middle-weight ADVs like Suzuki V-Strom 650, Kawasaki Versys 650, and Triumph Tiger Sport 660.
Last but not least, the Bullet 650. It is a no-frills motorcycle that is an absolute timeless legend. Royal Enfield had a 500cc version earlier, and the prospect of a large-capacity Bullet is enticing.
