TVS Working On Royal Enfield 650 Rival 

TVS is said to be developing a new 600-750cc motorcycle to rival the popular Royal Enfield 650 twins. 

  • TVS plans to rival Royal Enfield with its own 650cc motorcycle. 
  • The development is rumoured to be underway and with the help of Norton Motorcycles.

Although there is no official confirmation from TVS regarding the development of this new motorcycle, it is rumoured that the company is already working on it. 

The new flagship is expected to have a twin-cylinder motor, with power and torque output potentially exceeding that of the Royal Enfield 650 twins, which produce 47 hp of max power and 52 Nm of peak torque.

The body style of the new TVS flagship is still up in the air, with the company possibly launching multiple body styles simultaneously, or starting with a single offering such as a roadster. 

Based on market response, TVS may consider other body styles such as scrambler, cafe racer, and ADV similar to what Royal Enfield is doing with its 350 and 650cc range.

TVS will need multiple products in the 600-750cc segment to compete with rivals like Royal Enfield, who are consistently expanding their portfolio in this space. After the recent launch of the Super Meteor 650, Royal Enfield plans to add other 650cc bikes such as Shotgun 650, Himalayan 650, and Classic 650.

It is unknown whether TVS will develop this new motorcycle on its own or seek collaboration with another entity. TVS acquired British brand Norton Motorcycles in April 2020, and it is likely that they will use Norton’s expertise for their upcoming motorcycle.
