These days, Royal Enfield’s name appears almost every day on any two-wheel website.
- Royal Enfield to introduce five new motorcycles featuring an all-new 450cc platform.
- The Himalayan 450 could be the first to make public debut next year.
That’s because the Chennai-based motorcycle company has been busy introducing a range of new bikes in the last couple of years.
However, Royal Enfield will soon grow its portfolio with five all-new 450cc motorcycles.
According to reports in India, the 450cc range is likely to include an adventure tourer alongside a more off-road capable machine, possibly called the Himalayan 450. Also in the pipeline are a 450 roadster, 450 scramblers and a 450 cafe racer.
Royal Enfield has been caught testing an adventure tourer over the last few months, with reports claiming that it could be the first among the five to make its global debut next year.
Meanwhile, the Himalayan 450 will feature a single-piece flat seat, higher ground clearance and a longer travel suspension to boost the bike’s off-road ability.
Secondly, the roadster is a street-biased motorcycle, thus offering a lower seat height, sportier riding ergonomics and sharper bodywork.
The 450 scramblers and 450 cafe racer are similar to the roadster, offering slightly differing packages, including wired-spoke wheels, lower set clip-on handlebars, shorter fenders and a front beak.
In addition, all five models will boast LED lighting, including modern instrumentation.
