Mechanically, the upcoming 650cc Royal Enfield cruiser motorcycle is expected to be powered by the same 648cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin engine, which also powers the Interceptor 650 and the Continental GT 650. It is good for a maximum power of 46.8 HP @ 7150 rpm along with a peak torque of 52 Nm @ 5250 rpm. The engine will come mated to a 6-speed gearbox. Royal Enfield is expected to tune the power output of the engine to suit the characteristics of a cruiser motorcycle.
Some of the key hardware components of the upcoming motorcycle are upside-down (USD) front forks, a twin exhaust system, front and rear disc brakes, a dual-channel ABS unit, and the 650cc motorcycle will most probably also get Bluetooth connectivity and a turn-by-turn navigation system like the Meteor 350 and the 2021 Royal Enfield Himalayan.
In terms of pricing, the 650cc Royal Enfield cruiser motorcycle is expected to get an ex-showroom price tag of around INR 3.50 lakhs to INR 3.75 lakhs, while the official launch is expected to take place in the second half of this year.
