Royal Enfield plans to expand its products in the Indian and global market in the upcoming years. The company aims of launching 4 new models ranging from 250cc to 750cc. The company will launch every model after the interval of 3 months. For the Indian market, the company has planned 4 major product launches and the updated version of the RE Himalayan that will hit roads next year. Read below to learn more about the upcoming new Royal Enfield bikes:
1. New-Gen Royal Enfield Classic 350
The new-generation RE Classic 350 is certainly one of the much-awaited bike launches of the next year. According to the reports, the vehicle will be launched in the second quarter of 2021. Ditching the existing platform, the 2021 Royal Enfield Classic 350 will underpin a new modular ‘J’ architecture. The new platform is said to be designed for straight-line stability and cornering without affecting the comfort quotient. The bike will be upgraded with a new 349cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that does duty in the RE Meteor 350. Significant design changes and feature upgrades will also be made to the bike.
2.Royal Enfield Inceptor 350
Intereceptor motorcycle is reportedly being made by the Chennai-based bikemaker that too on a 350cc version. In fact, its test mule was recently caught on camera during the test rounds. The model has a single side-mounted exhaust unit instead of the twin exhaust system. Most of its design elements and features will be carried over from the bigger sibling. The new Royal Enfield Interceptor 350 is likely to share its platform with the RE Meteor 350. The telescopic front forks and twin spring rear shock absorbers suspension setup will also be borrowed from the Meteor. It’s likely to get Tipper navigation system along with some other goodies.
3.Royal Enfield 650 Cruiser
A new 650cc cruiser motorcycle will also be among the much-awaited upcoming Royal Enfield bikes, which are scheduled to arrive in 2021. The model is likely to be designed on the same platform that underpins the RE 650 twins. Some of its design elements, however, will be inspired by the RE KX concept that broke cover at the 2019 EICMA Motor Show in Italy. The bike will have a long wheelbase with a low slung profile. It will also feature circular headlamp, black finished alloy wheels, slender fuel tank, chrome twin exhaust canister and a longer seat. Engine might also borrowed from the 650 twins– i.e. 648cc, parallel-twin, air-cooled motor. The new Royal Enfield 650 cruiser is reported to come in the second half of 2021.
4. Updated Royal Enfield Himalayan
The Royal Enfield Himalayan has also been updated for 2021 release. It will be a periodic feedback-driver update. It is likely to recieve new tripper navigation system similar to the newly launched RE Meteor 350. Additionally there is a possibility of having a USB charger and might have new colour schemes. Having 441cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which is pretty good for 24.3bhp and 20Nm of torque is all set to rule the Indian market.
