Royal Enfield is a name that resounds deep in the hearts of every biker and this year they are packing heavy! With 5 new awesome versions of your favorite models and all new models to their line-up also, this year looks like it’s going to be the year of the Royal Enfield. Bringing you some of the all-new Enfield bikes that we are going to most probably see this year.
Continental GT 650
The only Café Racer provided by Royal Enfield, the Continental GT gets revamped into the Continental GT 650 and boy does it look gorgeous. Royal Enfield has big plans to introduce this bike to several countries overseas that actually support high-speed cruises. As the name suggests, it will be having the increased displacement of 648 ccs with a maximum power of 47bhp. It is expected to launch this April and will be priced somewhere around Rs. 3.5 to 4 Lakhs.
Using the same engine and chassis as the Continental 650, the Interceptor 650 was built to rival the Scrambler models. With a big enough fuel tank and dual disc brakes in addition to the ABS system, the Interceptor 650 is a worthy rival. Adding to the whole retro getup it portrays, it will host twin chrome exhaust pipes and bulky tyres.
Sporting the same looks as its predecessor, the Himalayan 650 comes with larger capacities as the CEO of Royal Enfield did confirm that they will be producing larger capacity bikes of select models in the upcoming years that are primarily focused on the Indian market and this is what we are seeing.
There is also an upcoming ABS version of the Himalayan model which will be cheaper than the 650 and will have a displacement of 411 ccs. With 24.5 bhp and 32 Nm, it does quite good by itself and will cost riders a minimum of Rs. 15000 extra than the current standard version of the Himalayan.
Getting 2 new red and white models from the ever classic series of the Thunderbird 350, this is one to impress the public for sure. With no official images out yet, the Thunderbird 350x is said to have 19.8 bhp and 28 Nm of torque and is said to be priced around Rs.1.60 Lakhs.
The Thunderbird 500x also gets revamped with awesome new colors, although the engine tends to remain the same as the previous 500 model. With full black alloys and engines and a removal of the backrest, there are hardly any other changes done here. Well if it ain’t broken, why fix it right?
