According to a recent report from NDTV, Royal Enfield is working on multiple new 650cc motorcycles for the Indian market. The brand’s CEO has officially revealed they have 650cc Roadster, Bobber and Scrambler in the pipeline. All of these products would be powered by the same 648cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin engine, which is good for a maximum power of 47HP and a peak torque of 52Nm.
Talking about the new 650cc motorcycles, Vinod Dasari, Royal Enfield CEO said – “One of the things that we need to do is to have several variants of the 650, and I’m sure our fans are very excited about all the potential opportunities, so like I said, P is a platform, there were two models, the Interceptor and the Continental GT, there could be several other models, each one of those models could come with several variants, and so on. So, we’ll build a tree on it. The feedback was absolutely superb. So, we’re working on several versions of it, and we’ll come back to you soon.”
“If you design a bike with a platform in mind, if you take the same engine apply it to a Scrambler, a Roadster, a Bobber or whatever, just change the frame, that’s what we have been working on for the last 3-4 years, and the output of that you will see for the next 3-4 years at least, so every quarter you will see something new. The 650 twin engine has been such a superb engine, it’s been doing so well, why can’t we apply it to so many different things, so obviously we’re looking at several options. And you will see several options of the twins coming out in a variety of different ways.” Royal Enfield’s CEO Vinod Dasari added.
