Royal Enfield to launch electric Himalayan and Scrambler 650 soon
Royal Enfield nailed it with their engines! They’ve got the J-Series for the 350cc bikes, the 650cc twins for the bigger ones, and a cool new 450cc motor to fill the gap. Now, with three engines and Harris Performance on their team, they can make a bike for any type.
But hold your horses, because there are already some cool bikes in the making. Check out these 5 upcoming Royal Enfield motorcycles in India!
Royal Enfield Shotgun 650
The company unveiled the Shotgun 650 at Motoverse a few days ago, and it will soon be available in regular production. Priced at Rs 4.25 lakh, the limited edition version will only be available in 25 pieces. The Shotgun 650 will be powered by the same 649cc parallel-twin engine that powers the Interceptor, GT, and Meteor 650.
Royal Enfield Scrambler 650
The Royal Enfield Scrambler 650 is expected to launch sometime in 2024, primarily in the second half. The fifth motorcycle to use the 650cc engine platform will be the Scrambler 650, which has been spotted testing multiple times. The Scrambler 650 features spoke wheels, a suspension with slightly longer travel, dual rear shocks, and dual-purpose tyres.
Royal Enfield Scram 450
The new Himalayan can spawn a more road-focused scrambler, called the Scram 450. Based on the same chassis as the Himalayan, the Scram will also get the same 40-horsepower liquid-cooled motor, but with slightly smaller wheels to make it more city-friendly. The launch timeline for the Scram 450 has not been revealed, but expect it to happen soon. The older Himalayan 411 and the Scram 411 shared the engine and platform.
Royal Enfield Classic 650
It makes sense for Royal Enfield to build a Classic 650 given the success of the Classic 350 range and the popularity of the 650cc engine. Like the other models, the Classic 650 has been spotted being tested in real life a few times, indicating that Royal Enfield is conducting testing in real situations prior to its launch.
All-electric Royal Enfield Himalayan
Although there have been rumours that Royal Enfield is developing an electric motorcycle, the company debuted its first electric motorcycle prototype this year at EICMA: the electric Himalayan. Testing is currently underway, and the all-electric Royal Enfield Himalayan could become the first electric adventure motorcycle in India by 2025.
